Elisabeth & Eli, South Melbourne, Australia- An Old Quebec intimate wedding celebrated on December 24th ,2013

”When I hear a bride say that she is stressed or overwhelmed by all the planning I say “You need Isabelle Radford”. Isabelle Radford is a true professional and there is no problem she can not solve and no detail that she overlooks. Many people believe that planning a small wedding is easier than a large wedding but the same details must be attended to and with a destination wedding the guests often travel from far away and providing a unique and memorable event is very important. Isabelle Radford created an unforgettable three day event for my daughter’s wedding in magical Quebec City. Isabelle guided us to all the best vendors for decor, flowers, music, photography, food and make-up. The vendors she suggested were all extremely creative and each one was dedicated to their art. They were all delightful to work with and Isabelle was with us every step of the way making the entire process completely effortless. Isabelle created the elegant, unique, breathtaking winter wonderland wedding my daughter had always dreamed of.

I can not thank her enough,
Linda”

Ginny & Martin, Toronto – A Quebec City intimate wedding celebrated on Thursday, September 5th, 2013

“Hello Isabelle. First, Ginny and I would like to wish you a year filled with joy, love and much success as a «wedding planner. » We wish to thank you for the excellent work you have done to make our day such a special event for us. The terrace Pierre Dugua de Mons, a true surprise for many of our guests, was the perfect ceremony location for us. Ginny, myself and our families love Quebec City, it was very important for us to gather at this special destination to confirm our love for each other. It was very emotional for me because it was a dream to get married in Quebec and it was even more wonderful than anticipated. It will remain etched in our memories for the rest of our lives. All guests loved the trio that you suggested. One of the best moment was seeing some of guests join the trio to sing along and especially to see my father (who suffers from Alzheimer’s) dance during the cocktail and in the evening. Today, my father no longer remembers but on the day of our wedding, he was happy and that’s what matters to me. The DJ has done a tremendous job even as we only started dancing at 10:30 p.m. His perfect bilingualism allowed him to entertain everyone and encourage them to the dance floor. I am visiting my mother to whom I showed the pictures of the wedding, she told me how she loved this day. We all loved the pictures that Jonathan has taken. A wonderful photographer, he captured many breathtaking pictures. The challenge now will be to choose which one we will frame. Finally, Louis Lafrance performed an impeccable […]

Sheila & Chris, Toronto – A Quebec City elopement celebrated on Thursday, July 18, 2013

“Our wedding would not have been the same without Isabelle. When Chris and I decided to elope in Quebec City, we thought about planning it alone. Things were just so complicated with the permits and decisions to make from afar so the moment Isabelle returned my call, we knew she would make our day not only everything we envisioned but also completely stress-free. We eloped just the two of us and Isabelle managed to make our small day feel like the most important thing she’d ever done. From the lead-up conversations on the phone, her quick responses to emails, her reassurance that everything would go as planned (which I was concerned about being so far away) she put us completely at ease. The day before our wedding, Isabelle walked us around to make photo shoot suggestions, she made sure we had the exact table at the restaurant we selected, she was flexible with every last minute request I had and when my dress would barely zip up – she was there to save the day! Such a naturally gifted planner, Isabelle not only pays great attention to detail, she truly cares about your wedding day being as magical as you hope for. I would highly recommend working with her and would absolutely love to go back and do ours all over again without changing a thing! Sheila and Chris”

Courtney & Scott, Texas – A Quebec City elopement celebrated on December 26, 2013

“Isabelle,

Happy New Year!  We are finally back in Texas!

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing holiday after all the weddings were completed.
It is my first day back at work and I have told everyone how wonderful you are and that you made it feel like we were the only ones to be getting married.
You made it very special and were very intuitive to what Scott and I wanted for our ceremony. It was perfect!

The pictures were amazing and it was very exciting to share some of the ceremony pictures with family and friends.
It is an excellent idea that we were able to receive a sample to share immediately!

I cannot express how much we appreciate you and what you do and how special our wedding (whole vacation really) was!

You are amazing, stay amazing!

Always,
Courtney”

Dominique & Alexander, Montreal – An intimate wedding celebrated on Sunday, September 1, 2013

‘What an unforgettable day which was totally created & customised by Isabelle! From the very beginning, Isabelle was able to understand us, reassure us, and most importantly, plan a wedding in our image. Our taste and inspiration, our budget, our families and friends. Everything was considered!

We wanted a grand wedding, but we also wanted to be surrounded by only a few loved one. Isabelle was the only one who could offer us our dream wedding!
Everything went perfectly from the early morning preparation until the festive evening with our guests in one of the executive suites of the Castle.

Isabelle, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our wedding a moment so magical and memorable!

Christina & Grant, Toronto -An intimate wedding celebrated on Monday, September 9, 2013

“I cannot praise Isabelle enough!

Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Isabelle’s hard work. Having Isabelle to recommend and coordinate the vendors, restaurants and an itinerary for a Quebec City wedding was a huge help since this was a destination wedding for us. Isabelle was very attentive, corresponded with me regularly during the year before the wedding and always answered my numerous questions in detail.

One example of her dedication is that we had an outdoor wedding and Isabelle stayed for our ceremony to stop people from coming too close or disrupting the ceremony. This was extremely valuable as we saw afterward how often she redirected people in our video, because in the moment we didn’t notice any of it. Because she was there to see it all through, we had the opportunity to just enjoy the moment.

In the end Isabelle’s service and personal touches made me feel like I was planning my wedding with a friend who wanted the day to go as well as I did. Anyone planning a wedding in Quebec City with Isabelle will have a very special day! THANK YOU ISABELLE!!

Christina and Grant “

Danielle & Steven, Ottawa – An intimate wedding celebrated on Saturday, September 21, 2013

“Thank you Isabelle,

Masterfully, you concertized our various, disparate ideas and desires into an all-inclusive «turnkey» wedding weekend that was absolutely magical and amazing and for us as for our guests.
Even though we did not meet you in person before the wedding due to the distance, your many interventions at specific times and your obvious attention to details quickly made us feel in great hands and allowed us to enjoy the process while being at ease. The result was magical.

You perfectly combined and arranged the various key elements such as the service, wonderful menu selection along with the desired decor ambiance that was enjoyed by all guests. The garden area and reception hall decor and design were magical. They far exceeded our expectations, it was breathtaking! Your interventions with the reception venue management provided us with an excellent service. The entire evening was absolutely impeccable. Your choice of photographer was equally off- pair; we loved how she masterfully managed a “festive” crowd and ultimately seized vivid and touching memories for us. The quality of the photography totally captured the wonder and magic of our evening. The accordionist that you recommended for the cocktail hour in the garden was perfect as he did set the tone and ambiance for the rest of the evening. We can say the same for DJ Keith, he carried through our magical evening with class and warmth.

In short, we and our loved ones were amazed, your support has been exceptional.

Thank you for everything,
Danielle and Steven»

Sarah & Kyle, Toronto – Quebec City elopement

“My wife and I were travelling from Toronto and we had booked the whole thing over the phone. As soon as we met Isabelle in person, she instantly made us feel very calm and confident that our elopement was in good hands! She met with us prior to the event, took us to the site where it would happen, and walked us through every detail. My wife literally breathed a sigh of relief and said “Ok, this is going to be fine!”. Our day was magical and went off without a hitch. Isabelle’s attention to detail made us feel so special and we recommend her services to anyone.”

Gwen & Christophe – Quebec City

“Having moved to Quebec from Brittany, France, my fiancée and I were relieved to be able to count on Isabelle Radford’s attentive service. She gracefully customized our wedding day, leaving nothing to chance by suggesting several options and giving us generous advice. We felt like she truly cared about our well-being. From our ceremony and reception site to the selection of our menu, wedding cake and vendors, everything was perfect. She also took great care of our guests who came from the United States and France, many of whom had the chance to stay at the Chateau Frontenac. Isabelle created a very special day for us all which will remain etched in our memories forever. Isabelle is undoubtedly the person of choice for a symbolic and inspired wedding, she is devoted, a true professional.

Gwen & Christophe”
