We wanted to extend our appreciation to you and your amazing team.

Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Everything started on time, there was nothing Ed and I were ever concerned with for our daughter.


A BIG thank you for gathering our wood slices from the tables for Ed and I, it was extremely nice of you and your awesome team.


You and your whole team treated our family very kindly and most of all you were all so professional.

Everyone complimented the whole wedding

Don't take my word for it. Here are a few words from couples and vendors I've recently worked alongside.


As a bride who was eloping in Costa Rica, I did not have plans to have an at-home celebration until I met Shalini.  She reminded me of the importance of “marking our day and celebrating with family”, and introduced us to the idea of hosting an intimate family brunch in our home, followed by an open-house for friends.  This decision was made only a few days prior to our departure and I cannot express how thankful I am that we were able to hire Shalini to pull everything together for us. Working with a tight schedule, Shalini took the time to get to know us and our tastes, brought her own unique ideas to the table, and quickly figured out exactly what needed to be done. She is incredibly professional and personable to work with, immediately making you feel as though you’ve known her for years.   She was a great support through the early stages, responding to texts at any time of night, even willing to hand deliver invitations to ensure they were received on time. She was even more valuable when it was time for us to leave for our 2 week trip.  We greatly appreciated being able to take off for our wedding knowing that our plans would all be taken care of in our absence.  As a detailed oriented customer, I had concerns that our event would feel as though it had been ‘thrown together’ but Shalini considered every possible detail and transformed our home into a beautiful setting.  Our event was absolutely wonderful, and we truly believe it would not have been so special if it weren’t for Shalini’s guidance.  I will absolutely hire Shalini for future events and encourage anyone with an upcoming wedding or event to considering meeting with her.  Regardless of your event size, having Shalini’s expertise and experience is invaluable when you are creating memories that will last a lifetime!

Shalini – we cannot thank you enough for suggesting we host this event! Thank you for the wonderful work you do and the memories you have given to us!

As a wedding photographer, I had the pleasure of working with Tamara. She was amazing to work with! She was organized, kept us on schedule, and made the day so relaxed! She was a tremendous help to not only the bride and groom but also to us vendors. I'd highly recommend her

Tamara was an absolute joy to work with! She has such attention to detail and makes sure she gives 110%. She worked with my husband and I for our wedding on September 5th and the day went perfectly! She takes the time to get to know you and what you want out of your special day. It was so nice to know we didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because we knew Tamara and her assistant had it covered! Tamara even took the time to remind me to take a few moments for myself before the reception... I'm sure she could see I needed it :) Tamara is worth every penny! She is so talented at what she does!

What can I say about the impeccable service I received from Shalini. I was so at ease knowing that every detail was taken care of. Shalini anticipated things that I had completely left off the list. She was instrumental in getting only what I needed out of various vendors – all at a reasonable price. Her breadth of knowledge and experience was unparalleled, and I even had some guests ask afterwards for her contact info for their own weddings!

I really liked that she could tailor the level of service. She never made me feel like I was too needy, her ideas were so unique, and she made the day come together in the most perfect way. She kept the day on schedule and on budget, kept the vendors in synch, and just made everyone feel so at ease.

It's really a shame that I don't plan to do this again. I would hire her again in a second!

Tamara was our wedding planner for our wedding that was held at the Valhalla Inn in Thunder Bay.  I was so busy with work let alone plan a wedding that I called Tell a Tale Weddings and Events and met with Tamara. I was so at ease with her and realized it was the best decision I could have ever made. Tamara is well organized, understanding patient...and was capable of keeping me on track. My wedding day turned out way beyond what I could have imagined. It was a dream come true wedding which I totally enjoyed as I was unaware of any problems or stresses because Tamara had it all covered. I had time to enjoy and watch our loved ones enjoy our special day. To this day, I get compliments from the vallhalla staff at how our wedding was the best wedding they have ever worked at...says a lot for the hard work Tamara put in to make our day so special. if you have no idea what your dream wedding is ...she can help ...she is filled with ideas and solutions. Thank you Tamara for making our day so special ..our wedding is truly one of Tamara tales to tell!
