My husband and I wanted a very laid back wedding and we did very little planning. I expected this to backfire as the day approached. Given that we got married on a Sunday, reserving a wedding commissioner and location for our big day was not too difficult.
When we first touched base with Kathy, we had no plans at all for the ceremony, and she was very patient with us. The big day came and of course, we were not ready to start on time. Again, Kathy was calm, smiling and making us feel so comfortable. Kathy created a beautiful and seemingly effortless ceremony. Everything felt natural as we floated through our day. Kathy was professional, knowledgeable and we could not be more thankful for her contribution to our day. In addition to this, she helped us keep all the paperwork organized and walked us through the whole event. We would definitely recommend Kathy’s services in planning any special event!

Planning a wedding from out-of-province felt like it would be very overwhelming, but when you have people like Kathy Dicks-Peyton involved in the process, things just seem to come together nicely! Kathy was so great at keeping us organized for the ceremony in the days leading up. The ceremony is truly the most important part of the day, so having Kathy there to help us get prepared was a dream. The ceremony she performed was so beautiful - she had the whole room in tears of joy and happiness.

We are so thrilled to have selected Kathy to be included in our wedding ceremony. Kathy officiated our marriage and did not disappoint. From the start she was very professional, easily accessible and very organized. The ceremony she preformed was so personal and unique - we had so many lovely compliments from guests regarding the ceremony. I would definitely recommend Kathy Dicks-Peyton to others for their wedding day!

When faced with planning a function for more than 400 people, most would be instantly overwhelmed, however, Kathy Dicks-Peyton of Functional Event Management took on the challenge with a smile. She found vendors we needed, and co-ordinated with those that we had already found ourselves. She communicated our wants and needs, and made our vision come to life! The night of the event she was present to handle any of the little things that could possibly arise, and made the night seamless and enjoyable for even the biggest worriers, like myself. Kathy is professional, approachable, and was a pleasure to work with!

Well Kathy Dicks-Peyton, we can't thank you enough. We have had so many comments on the ceremony, it was the most beautiful ceremony all because of you.

Kathy, we want to thank you for all you did in planning our wedding. The best decision we made was to hire you! You are fabulous, and your knowledge and experience was so helpful. Most of all, it was the day of our wedding itself that we want to thank you for. Our wedding day was the best day ever - we had fun and enjoyed ourselves with our families and friends.
Because we knew you had everything under control, we did not have to worry about anything! All the support you gave us and the kindness you showed, was like we knew you all our lives.
Again, thank you. Our wedding day would not have been the same experience without you! We consider ourselves truly blessed to have had the privilege of working with someone who translated our vision with such style, grace and professionalism.

With a conference to be planned, I found myself unexpectedly in need of an event planner. Having attended a number of Kathy’s event in the past, I made one phone call and didn’t look any further! Kathy hit the ground running. Her experience and organizational skills, fresh perspective and great ideas resulted in an outstanding event!

“Well where do I begin? Myself and my husband live in Thunder Bay, so Kathy was very accommodating when it came time to plan a ceremony that was happening in Newfoundland. As we got closer to our day, Kathy learned more about our relationship which made our ceremony very meaningful.
We decided to do a sand ceremony as well, and Kathy had the colours that we needed for our wedding which was perfect! The reading that Kathy did for our sand ceremony was so beautiful!
Our whole experience with Kathy was amazing - She truly knows how to make your ceremony special, and she will go out of her way to make your wedding day perfect. I would recommend Kathy to any of our friends who are getting married in the future!”
