thank you !!!
Afzia was a pleasure to work with! She is extremely professional, organized and went above and beyond to ensure that myself and my husband were worry free on our big day. She was a real help from the beginning, making sure to take the time to understand the wedding traditions that were important to us and to help ease the mind of myself and my family. I can without a doubt say that hiring her was the best decision we could have made. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to hire a wedding planner/ coordinator.

Afzia was our wedding planner for our July 2015 wedding and words can’t express the gratitude and appreciation that we have for her! It is hard to put into words but she was simply perfect. Afzia went above and beyond to bring our dream wedding day to life and we wouldn’t have been able to get through it without her. Her professionalism, dedication, and passion for what she does was evident in every interaction that we had with her.
From our very first meeting we knew that we were in the best hands. Afzia’s enthusiasm is contagious even when we were feeling overwhelmed with where to even start for the planning process. She was patient with us and there for us every step of way from deciding on our wedding location to sourcing vendors (tent, catering, stationary, photography and décor), to attending the tastings with us. She even stayed positive with us when we had to move our wedding date forward and worked with our vendors to make the change seamless (without even batting an eye).We highly recommend Afzia’s services to any bride and groom who are planning for their big day.
If you want a positive, personable, reliable, enthusiastic, and dedicated wedding/event planner then she is the person for you!

We used Style & Elegance for our Wedding Day-of Coordination. From the start, Afzia was a pleasure to work with. Though she was not familiar with the Chinese wedding reception, food, and traditions, she was very respectful, well-organized, and kept all the vendors and guests happy and under control. She was super flexible and willing to help us out in any way possible for the wedding day, including adjusting her hours to stay late and help clean up after the wedding was over.
For us, this was a huge relief as we did not want to worry about that at the end of a long day and a fun night. Afzia drove to downtown Toronto to meet with us 3 times before the wedding day itself and took the time to meet my family and wedding party so that she would be comfortable taking the lead on the day of. And despite having sprained her ankle just the week before our wedding day, Afzia worked very hard to help set up our hall and ensure that everything looked right and flowed exactly the way we had imagined it to.
As hiccups are bound to happen throughout the day, I was so glad that we had Afzia there to solve the problem. I would highly recommend her as a coordinator - she has excellent judgement and professional demeanor, and made sure our hall looked gorgeous while keeping the guests and us very relaxed and happy! Thank you so much Afzia!!!!

We were very happy to have had Afzia as our Wedding Planner for the day of our wedding. She made sure that our vendors were there on time and everything was set up the way we envisioned.
Just knowing that we had someone who would "take care of it" was well worth it!
Afzia met with us and made sure that she understood our concerns, and helped us to stay organized with a handy checklist of things to remember.
Thanks Afzia for making our day run smoothly!

We had a fantastic experience working with Afzia at Style and Elegance. Its like the name says – she understands “styles” and she completes “elegance”! Afzia keeps the fun in wedding planning; she is flexible, open-minded and has an obvious love of everything wedding. We hired Afzia on a partial planning package which included her coordination at the rehearsal and on the wedding day.
We found Afzia very knowledgeable, professional and she had some great design ideas. We found the partial package to be perfect for us because it allowed us to plan some aspects of the wedding day on our own, and when we needed help we would ask Afzia. Her network of wedding vendors was a valuable resource for us, not to mention the discounts many of her vendors gave us through booking with Afzia. By the time all was said and done, the discounts we received offset the cost of hiring a wedding planner. Afzia kept us organized and definitely alleviated some of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. She was there at every vendor meeting when we needed her and kept us on track with regular meetings. She also made the extra effort to find the perfect little details for our day AND returned many of our rental items while we were on our honeymoon!
We want to THANK YOU very much for all the hard work and dedication you have put into not just our Wedding Day, but the entire planning process. From the moment that we had our initial meeting with you, we knew you were the perfect person!!! We are grateful for the energy, passion and enthusiasm you brought to each of our meetings as it made us feel confident that everything was in great hands. You have gone above and beyond in so many areas - from vendor appointments, prompt email responses, creative ideas to the smallest of details like overlays being sewn.... Wow!!! You truly are one-of-a-kind Afzia! Thank you soooo much!

To all Brides and Future Brides,
Please let me tell you how wonderful and amazing Afzia is at Style and Elegance. I recently just got married at the beginning of August 2011. Up until about the beginning of June, my fiance and I were planning everything. Then it hit me...ha, that I needed help!! All the major details were booked, ie. venue, photographer, DJ, videographer etc. But as the wedding was approaching I started to think of all the little details that would need to be done prior to and of course during the wedding day.
This is when I met with Afzia and after getting to know her for only a couple hours, we just clicked and I knew that she would be a great fit! Afzia is a very calm, determined individual. She loves what she does and ALWAYS has the brides best interest. She always gets the task done and finds a solution to anything and everything.
I honestly do not know what I would have done without her. She was there on the day of the wedding and handled everything, I mean everything, for example, calling transportation to make sure he was on schedule, going into the reception hall and adding details that I asked her to do, making sure everything was on schedule and ran smoothly, giving people there final payments, I mean there's too much to name. Honestly, there's so much going on the day of your wedding and you do NOT want to have to deal with all the minor and some major details, if I didn't have her, all of the little details would have fallen on me or my bridesmaids, and I did not want that. But thanks to Afzia everyone in the wedding party was free of any duties, making phone calls, checking on things, and we just had a blast all day long and night.
Afzia is truly a professional at heart, I don't know what I would have done without her. One of the best investments we made for us on our wedding day! I would recommend Afzia to anyone! Afzia is not only is a wedding planner but a great friend to us! She always gets the job done and turns your dreams of a fairytale wedding into reality!

Thanks to you, all the things that we could not do, because we were the bride and groom, were in your capable hands. You are passionate about what you do and it shows! You are bright, creative and professional. You worked with our wishes and planned wonderful ideas from our vision. You helped create the day we wanted.
You are reliable and efficient. This is a day that needs to be as close to perfect as possible. All the things that came our way were handled by you, a professional that knows about weddings, venues, décor, flowers, food, hair, timing, lighting and ALL the ins and outs of weddings! This is a big job that you handled so easily because you are fabulous at what you do.
You were ready for everything! Half the time when I thought of something you were one step ahead and already had it in writing and planned out! You worked creatively to help a non-traditional wedding come together. You asked tons of questions and gathered all the information to make sure you had everything you needed and that we covered all the things we needed. You made sure nothing was forgotten.
You were so kind and courteous to all our family and guests. Everyone loved you! Your enthusiasm radiates. Larry and I loved having you there as you are delightful to have around. You were warm and genuinely excited to help plan our dream wedding.
With you being there, we had nothing left to do on our wedding day but enjoy. You took care of all the rest! A care free, relaxed wedding day is something that every bride and groom deserves and you made this happen!
