We met Crystal and her team when they helped plan our friend’s wedding and we saw how smoothly the wedding went. We had already started planning for our wedding and already had a vision planned out. However, we didn’t want to be worrying about the schedule on the wedding day. We met with Crystal to see how we could leverage her services to make sure everything happened smoothly. As we discussed wedding topics, it became clear that she was very detail oriented, organized, and experienced. Needless to say, we hired Crystal as our month-of coordinator.

We explained to her what our vision for the wedding was and she quickly understood what we were looking for. She had a lot of great input in our wedding design so we also used her decor design and rental services as well. She was able to provide different price points for options to help us compare.

We had to pause our wedding due to Covid but as restrictions started easing Crystal was able to jump right back into helping us with the wedding. She helped us coordinate with the different vendors working with them on scheduling, and communicating updates. At this time, the restrictions were changing every few weeks. Crystal was able to stay on top of the new rules and coordinated with the venue to work these updates in as they were happening.

On the day-of, we didn’t have to worry about anything because we trusted Crystal and her team to run the show and make sure things were on schedule. We were able to enjoy our wedding and celebrate with friends and family we haven’t seen in over a year. Thank you for helping our wedding day go smoothly. We strongly recommend Crystal and her team.

After we cancelled our 2020 wedding due to covid, we found Luxe Weddings and Crystal to help with a micro ceremony. After our initial phone call I figured out how little I actually knew and how knowledgeable Crystal is. There was so much to think about for the planning process, but having Luxe Weddings on my side made it a breeze for us. She was AMAZING to work with. From her easy going demeanor to her detail-oriented mind, she is exactly what you want and need on your big day. She knows all the right questions to ask to make sure you are covering everything.

She totally meets you were you are at in the planning process which I loved. She fits around you and your process all the while gently keeping you on track. She instinctively knows when and how to offer help. We had so many compliments on her and her team.

I highly recommend reaching out to her and having a chat. You will fall in love with her and her team like we did. Our day went flawlessly, the wedding video turned out amazing and our photos will be cherished always! Thank you so much Luxe Weddings!!!

Crystal was the wedding planner for our friend’s wedding two years ago. We reached out to Crystal after we failed to find a venue that we like. During our first phone conversation, Crystal explained to us all the current pandemic restrictions. She was very helpful in suggesting several venue options that meet our requirements and budget. She was also able to help with organizing decorations setup and take down.

Throughout the planning process, Crystal has been very attentive, patient and professional. She was always quick to respond our questions. Sometimes it takes us a while to make up our decisions, but Crystals was very understanding. Crystal also took care of all the correspondence with the vendors and the commissioner, so that we can focus our time on the more important matters.

With the outdoor restrictions relaxed just a week before our wedding, we had to make quite a few last minute changes. This includes the addition of a wedding party and doubling the number of guests. Crystal was able to accommodate all our requests.

Thanks to Crystal, we were able to have an amazing wedding, and to share this moment with our friends and family.

Crystal was absolutely phenomenal when planning our wedding. We had contacted her in June requesting for partial planning and she worked her magic! She made amazing vendor referrals such as MCs, dance floors, drapery, florists, makeup and many more. Crystal basically took our ideas, mixed in with her own and created our wedding which I thought was something really special. Our guests couldn’t stop raving about how well planned and beautiful our wedding was! I had thought the wedding day would’ve been stressful but that was not the case at all. Crystal and Celine took care of everything and I enjoyed myself so much!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Jack Poole Hall inside the Alumni Centre at UBC with only a 3-4 hour gap for a flip. The ceremony, which was decorated by Crystal, gave minimalistic but elegant and romantic vibes which I absolutely loved! For reception, Crystal had decorated the place to look sweet and soft with light blush pink, ivory and white tones along with glass everywhere. She tied every element that I had asked for beautifully together and I was sooo satisfied with how the venue looked. She was so receptive to all the questions we had prior to the wedding and we felt like it was an absolute dream having Crystal as our wedding planner. She was so sweet to the point of replying back and forth with lengthy detailed emails on her birthday!

I loved her attention to detail and how much of a perfectionist she is! She is one of a kind and I have already recommended her to all my other friends who are getting married. In the beginning of the year, we were dreading all the planning but when Crystal came on board, we ended up looking forward to it! Thank you SOSOSO much Crystal!

Crystal did our day-of coordination for our wedding this summer and we are very happy with her work. She is incredibly organised, detail oriented, and responsive. She did a fantastic job with decorations, organised all our vendors and other issues that came up behind the scenes, so that our wedding day felt completely effortless and we could just enjoy ourselves. We highly recommend her services.

We are a very laid-back couple and we wanted someone who we could trust to handle all the small details we didn’t want to deal with. We also didn’t want someone pushing an agenda or being too controlling. Crystal was perfect. She had a giant binder with everything you could possibly need to know for the day and was excited to listen to our ideas and bring them to life.

We used her as a day-of coordinator, and she was so much more. She really went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. It was a bonus that she also rents some decor, as we had trouble sourcing a couple of things and she was able to help us with last-minute easels.

Working with Crystal felt like having a friend be your wedding coordinator. She was easy to work with, and on the day, we never stressed about anything. She had everything totally covered.

Crystal was our full wedding coordinator and our day of coordinator. She started planning the wedding 13 months ahead of time prior to our wedding. I can definitely say that Crystal has a very nice touch and perspective in terms of organization and aesthetics. She not only plans and organizes everything in a timely, detailed manner, she also makes sure that everything will look nice and coordinated in the end. Our wedding venue and displays got many compliments due to Crystal’s attention to detail. On the day of our wedding, everything was being done without much action by us (bride and groom) and the wedding party which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding day, for everything to run smoothly.

Thank you to Crystal and Celine for making our wedding day everything we envisioned and hoped for!

I met Crystal through a referral about 9 months before our wedding. Initially, we were looking for a day-of-coordinator who’s also able to help us setup and take-down our own decor, since we didn’t have a whole lot but would still save us a lot of stress and our friends/family could enjoy the wedding. After my first meeting with Crystal, she addressed several areas where she felt I could benefit from her month-of-coordination service instead. And boy, was she right! This was especially true the last 2-3 weeks before the wedding where all the tedious back-and-forth needed to be firmed up or clarified, and problems addressed or resolved with vendors etc… Not to mention that both my now-husband and I worked almost right up until our big day and we started having out-of-town visitors arriving.

Crystal is professional, pleasant, experienced, and offers a lot of great ideas and insight when I needed to bounce ideas or had the silliest questions that just boggled my bridezilla mind. She’s very, very detail-oriented, organized, and reliable in every way – and yes, this is coming from a control freak (me) who normally would not be able to let go. It was her first wedding at my venue, but this only shows how hard she works and goes the extra mile to make sure everything was seamless.

Besides being my sounding board, organizer, and coordinator, she is also a caring person – she checked in on me from time to time, making sure I’m coping okay. We are so grateful for her and Celine’s help on the day of the wedding as well. I had the mindset that no one wedding is ever perfect, that there’ll be something that won’t be going as planned or, even, “wrong” and that that’s okay. But, looking back now, we both felt our wedding was just the way we had hoped for, if not more! THANK YOU, CRYSTAL AND CELINE!

Crystal was a true professional from beginning to end, our wedding day went off without any hitches and it was in large part due to her hard work.

My daughter Andrea and my new son-in-law Matt were married this weekend. We came across “Luxe Weddings by Crystal Chiang” back in December, and it was the best find ever! After our first meeting with Crystal, we knew she was the one we wanted to work with. Crystal is so personable and you feel an instant connection to her. She is very organized and detailed.

My daughter had asked me if I would do the planning for her, and of course I jumped at the idea. So we only required Crystal for the last month coordinating. In retrospect, I should have just hired her for the entire planning process as there is so much more to do that I anticipated! Thankfully, Crystal offers consultations as well as partial decor design and rentals. Her consultations were so helpful, and she offered the best tips and suggestions. If you are looking for a seating chart, she does AMAZING calligraphy on a beautiful mirror!

I cannot say enough about Crystal and Celine. They worked so hard the day of the wedding and made sure everything was perfect. It allowed the rest of us to just enjoy the day…no worries at all! We never felt like just clients and she certainly felt like part of our family! At the end of the evening, they were hard at work taking down and packing things up for us. Our family and so many of our guests commented how everything looked amazing. It’s surprising how many people appreciate the little details. My daughter had a beautiful wedding, and I give much of the credit to Crystal. Andrea had a vision, and Crystal made it happen. I highly recommend Crystal for any planning and coordinating of events. She is truly a gem.

I had the privilege to have Crystal as my wedding planner on Feb 23, 2019 at Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver. She was so helpful and extremely hard work. From coordination to decoration, Crystal was able to handle without my worries. All I had to do was to get prepared, rest well and enjoy this fantastic party with my family and friends.

Crystal is extremely detailed oriented, very well organized and always stayed on top of all the situations we have. With her professional wedding planning experience, she’s able to plan a wedding that’s over our imagination while keeping within our budget range. On top of her professionalism, Crystal is also very caring and willing to contribute all her time specific to my wedding. I was also thankful that she will call me and care for my feelings when I’m feeling stressed.

Thank you so much Crystal for your fantastic hard work! Your creativity and passion towards wedding planning truly shows your talent. Truly appreciated and a big thumbs up for organizing this wonderful wedding!

I am so glad that I asked Crystal to be my wedding planner. Without her, I would have been enormously stressed and would probably end up with either a crappy wedding or a huge debt. She walked us through things that we never thought were involved in wedding planning (and we have been to several). We had a very informative consultation followed by quick and efficient updates throughout the 10 months of planning. She found us a great venue despite the time crunch. Crystal was really flexible and professional and it took her no time to really knew what we really want in our wedding and personalize our wedding accordingly.

The result: my guests were greatly surprised at how smoothly and punctually my wedding flowed; everyone was so happy with the service they received; I worried about nothing on my wedding day (ended up full, happy, and relaxed). She is also in charge of my wedding’s decor and it turned out GORGEOUSLY. My guests were so blown away by how elegant the venue looked. I would definitely recommend her to any newly engaged couples if you want an awesome wedding without having to go through overwhelming stress.

Crystal was amazing to work with! She was knowledgeable and flexible with our schedules. She gave us a lot of suggestion and consultations which already out of her service. She‘s professional and helpful to set up our head table and table sets. Crystal took special care to ensure that no one in our wedding party needed to worry about decor from start to finish. Although there are some delayed, Crystal help a lot to solve the problems for me. Me, my families and all guests feel very comfortable and enjoyed our wedding! Thank you for going above our expectations with your service!

WOW. Crystal is a dream come true. From the beginning, she was more dedicated to executing the vision for our wedding flawlessly than anyone we’ve met. Before Crystal, we thought we were totally organized for our wedding and just needed a day-of coordinator. Once we met, she shed a lot of light on areas that needed improvement and it was clear that we were actually going to need her for the entire month leading up to our wedding.

Working with her was seamless – she took a lot of work off our plates and went above and beyond to establish relationships with our vendors and get the day totally fine tuned. She literally thought of EVERYTHING and made sure to avoid any issues before they even popped up. She’s a perfect mix of detail-oriented and meticulous as well as having incredible people skills. I know she stayed up late many nights working on our wedding to make sure it was perfect, and it WAS. On the day, she managed between guests, vendors, decor, logistics. She’s like 4 people in one. Truly incredible, sharp and able to think on her toes. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone considering her services!

There are no words I can say that’ll show how grateful I am to Crystal and Celine. These girls are the best! I wasn’t sure whether I was going to hire a coordinator at all and then decided on hiring a day-of coordinator. One month before the wedding, I met up with Crystal for the consultation and realized how overwhelmed (and far behind) I really was. I ended up hiring her for the month-of services and boy was I glad. She went above and beyond (wayyyy beyond) her responsibilities as per the agreement. She made sure I got things done. She made sure our special day went as smoothly as possible. Let’s just say I was a difficult client due to my prone to procrastination and the fact that my family and guests were difficult too…but she did it! If it weren’t for Luxe Weddings, I’m not quite sure this wedding would’ve even happened! Thank you SO MUCH, ladies.
