Throughout this adventure, I have been fortunate to have met and worked with some wonderfully kind and lovely people.
Receiving these kind words make us truly happy, and has made every late night and hectic day completely wonderful - for that, we are grateful. xo
Although our wedding day ended up being so different than we imagined, I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. Covid-19 completely sidelined our perfectly laid plans, and coming to the decision of what to do was not easy. Through all the emotions, decisions, vendor calls and cancellations, our wedding planner Tam (Blue Lily Event Planning), was there. We chose to elope on a private beach on the coast and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to marry my best friend. The waves crashed around us in our perfectly intimate ceremony and it was followed up with a champagne toast, cake cutting and our first dance. We decided that being married was our priority, and we will celebrate with all of our loved ones when the world is right again.
I’ve been asked by so many people what advice I have for any brides who decide to elope, and my answer is 100% to hire a wedding planner. Just because you are scaling down your day completely, maybe to just a few people, or like in our case, just the two of us and our pup, you still deserve the beautiful details of a traditional wedding. To say she was the reason we had such a perfect day is an understatement. In our last minute switch to an elopement, Tam was able to source us a cake, flowers and help me choose our decor. On the wedding day, I didn’t have to to worry or think about anything. She delivered our dinner, decorated, kept us on time, and made sure every detail was perfect. She was even our DJ! I know the day wouldn’t have felt so personal and special without her there.
I just wanted to send you a message and give you a HUGE thank you for the amazing job you and your team did yesterday. It was exactly the way I imagined it and I know how incredibly hard your team worked to pull it off. I am so grateful for you and your staff and I am so lucky to have found you! It would not have happened if it wasn't for you! I will definitely be recommending you to EVERYONE I know, because I just can't rave enough about your professionalism, taste, and talent!
I don’t even know how to put to words how incredibly valuable Tam’s services are for your wedding day. It was the most perfect day, absolutely flawless, and that’s largely in part due to Tam and her team. As long as you communicate it - she will create exactly what you want down to the smallest detail (like having skittles bags on the kids chairs). She keeps all the vendors in check and on the right schedule, and she’s virtually impossible to spot on your big day because she’s in so many places at once. I highly recommend Tam and her team if you’re looking for a stress free, worry free, smooth, relaxing wedding!!
Patrick and I cannot thank you enough for holding our hands through planning a crazy COVID 19 wedding. The day could not have been more perfect and there is no way we could have done it without you. You are extraordinary at what you do! Not only did you manage our nerves, never ending questions, and numerous changes, but you saw our vision and created a day that was a beautiful as it was unforgettable. Thank you so much from the bottom of our heart.
Emma and Patrick
You were one of the first people we thought of this morning when we woke up - you were a heroic presence in our wedding and we are so grateful...
!! POTENTIAL CLIENTS !!
this woman is a magician and a master at what she does!!!
We love the "missing bass" story and the fact that we didn't even hear about it until this morning.
to Tammy and crew from 'Blue Lily Event Planning' for making our day so seamless and incredible yesterday!
YOU WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND,
including a cross town drive during dessert to find a
bass guitar for our band!
You truly ROCK!!
Thank you for doing what you do.

Tam's a Party Planner,
not a Party Pooper
Thank you so much for all your love, flexibility and kindness. You were truly the reason all our dreams became reality. We are so honored to have to play such a massive role in our special day. Everyone had the loveliest things to say about you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you and lots of love.
Hailey and Sebastian
Because of Tammy's help,
we had one of the best weddings any of our friends and family had ever seen.
It had such character and class and went off without a hitch.
We both highly recommend Tam for any local or long-distance wedding planning on Vancouver Island
Joel and Heather
You did such a fantastic job!
We were so lucky to have you as our wedding planner.
During the planning, I always felt more at ease after chatting with you,
and LOVED how organized you were. I knew we could count on you.
On the day, you took care of everything, and we were so impressed by you calm demeanor and can-do attitude, even though you were in the middle of putting out small fires, so to speak!
We knew you were taking care of things and you went above and beyond in your dedication to making sure our wedding and reception were all that we hoped they would be.
We highly recommend you!
Alison and Mark
Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into creating this amazing day for us. Guests were blown away by the details and beauty of all you worked so hard to help envision for us. Your living room was a huge hit and everything looked wonderful and magical on the hilltop and in the tent!
From initial planning and organizing, to set up and take down, everything went perfectly!
Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help on our wedding day! Things could not have gone as smoothly as they did without you, and the day went absolutely perfect. We had such a great time and everyone raved about how seamless everything was. Thank you for all your advice, suggestions, and quick thinking to come up with "plan b" when things didn't look so great. My wedding day was funny enough the most relaxing day of the entire long weekend for us, and I know that it was in no small part because of you. Thank you!!!!!
I can’t express how happy Adam and I are that we chose to have our wedding at Birds Eye Cove Farm and that you were one of the most essential parts of turning it into the spectacular day it was. Everything was just flawless and absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful day! Thank you for all your hard work and making this day possible for us! You rock!
Kristin and Adam
Oh my god we are filled to the brim with gratitude for you and all you did to ensure our day ran wonderfully and smooth. Thank you so very much for handling all of the details so that we could just soak up the moment and people around us. You have filled our hearts forever. Thank you again 100x over!!

I just want to say thank you so incredibly much for everything yesterday. You made our vision come true and more and literally kicked butt! We know that a bunch of drunk people and a stressed bride and groom aren’t always the easiest to deal with...and are very very appreciative.
THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for everything. Our wedding was the absolute best day! We had so much fun ! Thank you for all of your help leading up to the day and coordinating the day of. We are so happy we chose Bird's Eye Cove!!!
Thank you SO much for everything yesterday! It was literally the best day and absolutely beautiful! It doesn't seem real and such a blur! I really appreciate all yours and Tam's help and guidance through this process. I can't believe it's over already but on to our next chapter! Thank you!
Katie and Dean
You are absolutely amazing, SO amazing. Thank you for all you did for the Games. It was such a pleasure to meet and work with you.

Nick and I wanted to reach out and thank you for all the hard work you and your team put into our special day.
At every meeting beforehand you were able to clearly see my vision for our day and everything, down to each little detail, was absolutely perfect. It was so wonderful to experience our day with so much ease and no worry whatsoever.
We both know that our day would not have been the same if you weren’t a part of it, and I thank you again and again for all the hard work you put into it. You are truly amazing.
Amalia and Nick
Tammy, how do I even thank you for all the work you and you lovely team did to create the perfect wedding experience for my daughter Brandy and Son-in law Matt! Your calmness was contagious, and having you dealing with all the details was a God send. xoxo
On behalf of the entire team...
Thank You, on an absolutely awesome last night!
As always, you coordinated everything to a "T" and made us look like pros to our partners and clients.

Leave it to Tammy, she’s truly the best and gives more than 100% to everyone.
I can't say enough about Tammy, she was seriously so amazing! She helped sooo much with the planning process and with any questions we had prior to our wedding! She made the day go by so smoothly and made sure everything was happening when it was supposed to. I don't think our wedding would have been anywhere near as organized if it weren't for her! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone getting married on the island!
Tam is literally AMAZING!
Tam has been incredible to work with! She is super responsive and very informative (she literally knows EVERYTHING from what flowers can be left on the table without wilting to knowing to be prepared with allergy medicine for a farm wedding) - she is the best! She has been super flexible and understanding with COVID-related changes, and has worked her butt off to make a bride's nightmare as stress-free as possible. I can't say anything but great things about her!
Tammy went way above and beyond as our wedding planner. She's got an amazing eye and style and is above all really wonderful to work with.

Tam made our day the huge success it was. Having a destination wedding was something that could have been difficult, our wedding with Tams help was nothing short of an amazing carefree day.
Bride, Wedding Wire
Tammy was a complete angel! She was available to answer all of my questions big or small at any time prior to the wedding and made sure our day was perfect! She took our vision and brought it to life, adding details we never could have thought of. She was professional, kind, extremely hardworking, and a pleasure to work with. She made sure that everything was smooth and ensured we had nothing to worry about on the day. I would highly recommend Tammy to anyone looking for a planner or coordinator.
Chelsea and Leroy
We truly don't have words to properly express how amazing of a job you did. You literally covered everything! Our day was perfect and we were able to truly enjoy every minute of it because you thought of everything and made sure it went as smooth as possible. You are the most kind and caring woman and we will forever be grateful.
