What people are saying about Occasions in Niagara’s wedding planning services:


Mr. and Mrs. Adam and Melanie P,
Chateau des Charmes Winery, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario


I knew from our first conversation that you were the perfect fit as our wedding planner. My initial fear of being unable to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake more than twice before the big day was quickly relieved after hearing about your exceptional experience, your unique relationship with several wedding vendors and, most of all, your tenacious character in getting the best results for your clients. I knew you would be my perfect replacement and you most definitely have earned an honorary ‘lawyer’ title! You tirelessly responded to my daily emails with lists of questions in record time. You fought long and hard to get the best deals with our vendors even if it meant putting your own relationship with them on the line. You were flexible in accommodating our changing desires. And, most importantly, you put the whole wedding party at ease on the wedding day. Even after six months, guests are still commenting how it was the best wedding they have ever attended. It truly was a fairy tale and would not have been possible without you.

Our greatest gratitude,

Melanie and Adam

My husband and I are so thrilled to have had our wedding with Occasions, Patti went above and beyond to not only provide a wonderful service but to pull it all with flying colors. Anthony went above and beyond a photographer and was wonderful friend to pull our wedding together and get the best photos ever. He made sure that we were able to include anyone and everyone we wanted in our photos. My now husband has said that our wedding was the perfect wedding, he even cried during his vows… from wedding itself to photos everything was perfect. Thank you Patti for your wonderful team, and thank you Anthony for being the best photographer I have ever witnessed.

Rebecca and Richard, September 2015

We recently flew to Niagara Falls from England to get married in the beautiful location called Willow Pond. I’d just like to thank Patti for the amazing job that she did for us, I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her team of people from the Photographer Anthony, the Girls at the hairdressing salon and make up artist were all outstanding. Living so far away I first had concerns about this but Patti soon eased all of these, her communication is fantastic.

John and Nancy – Niagara on the Lake, August 2015

Patti- I just wanted to thank you again for helping us coordinate the best day of our lives! We had such a wonderful experience, and we couldn’t have done it without your help. Everything went so smoothly for us, and it will be a memory that I will treasure forever. The venue was breathtaking, the music was wonderful, the ceremony was heartfelt, and the photographer made us feel so comfortable. The ladies who did my hair and makeup made me feel so at ease as I was getting ready, too. Oh, and the lunch was amazing! That view was spectacular, and the food and service were second to none. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding in Niagara Falls, because you gave us everything we wanted and more. Thank you again for all your help. It was so nice to finally meet you after over a year of correspondence and planning! I wish you all the best.

The short amount of time we had to plan with only 3 weeks, she helped us out with everything ! from booking our wonderful officiant, to the location, the day/time and even the photographer Anthony Sobie.

Visnja and Christoper Creighton, Niagara on the Lake July 2014

Our recent wedding in Niagara-On-The-Lake was perfect! Patti was very patient, diligent, and understanding of our requests. I was particular about the wedding officiant and the vows, and both Patti and the wonderful officiant tailored the ceremony to suit our wishes. The wedding was small, intimate, and exactly what we had hoped for. We will have very special memories of a fantastic day well organized and expertly officiated. My family raved about the wedding. I would heartily recommend Patti and the crew at Occasions in Niagara if you are planning a wedding in this amazing location.

Betty and Lam Ngo – Niagara Falls June 2014

We would like to express our sincere appreciations for Patti’s help with planning and organizing our wedding on June 29, 2014 at the Oakes Garden Theatre, Niagara Falls. We highly recommend Patti for her expertise and professionalism. We faced a challenge with having a destination wedding and limited time to prepare for the wedding due to our busy working schedules. But, Patti and her team made everything easy for us. Throughout the process, Patti had a great rapport and walked us through all steps of the way. Patti is experienced, meticulous and paid close attentions to our wishes as well as budget. We received many compliments for the ceremony and reception from our family, friends and guests.

The Officiant was very kind and wonderful to work with. Our photographer Anthony Sobie from, violinist, hair and makeup teams, florist, baker, and caterer are all fantastic. Patti, thank you so much for making our dreams a reality, and better! Best regards, Betty & Lam – (Houston, TX)

Diane Lovel – Mother of the Bride, July 2014 Niagara Falls

Patti and her team are Simply THE BEST! My daughter just got married July 8, 2014 at the Garden Oakes Theater in Niagara Falls Ontario. We live in Texas and Patti took care of everything. Every detail my daughter wanted was arranged by Patti. The officiant, the violin player, the hair and make-up salon, the florist, the limo driver and the photographer Anthony Sobie from (who was amazing) were all arranged by Patti. I couldn’t have hand picked anyone better than these Patti picked. Patti and her “magic” made it a truly remarkable beautiful wedding.

Lexi Ley – August 2014, Niagara Falls

My experience with Patti and Occasions in Niagara couldn’t have been better! We were planning a destination wedding in the midst of me finishing my surgical residency. I relied on her for basically EVERYTHING! She organized the tiny details and made our wedding so perfect! From the get-go, I gave her the basic idea of what I wanted and she made it happen! She put up with my incessant emails and calls and made me feel at ease! Our day was perfect and I couldn’t have done it without her.

Julie and Jesse Weeks – June 2014, Niagara Falls

At first we thought we wanted a destination wedding somewhere tropical, but slowly as the stress mounted on we quickly realized that wasn’t for us. I started researching and came across Occasions Niagara, and read about the wonderful Patti Wallington. We decided it would be awesome to get married in Niagara Falls, so I contacted Patti. This was definitely the BEST decision! Not once did I feel an ounce of stress. She took care of everything! Always getting back to me promptly with any questions I had, she answered them all, taking care of everything. I had only ever been to one wedding, so I wasn’t even really sure how things were done. She booked all amazing people, the minister, the amazing photographer, and even booked the violinist, and everything went awesome!

What a wonderful, sweet lady you are Patti! Thank you for all the hard work you did for us, our wedding would not have been what it was without you doing what you do best!!!! Thank you so much!!!

Joni Lilly – August 2013, Niagara Falls

If I could add more stars I would!!!!! Wow, where to start! I started planning our wedding about 3 weeks before the actual date. I googled weddings in Niagara Falls and I came across “Occasions in Niagara”. That’s were I started and that was all the searching I needed to do. Patti (the coordinator) took care of everything for us…and I mean everything! Our wedding was a fairy tale wedding!

Julie Hulme – July, 2013, Niagara Falls

We married at Oakes Garden Theatre at Niagara Falls in July 2013 with the help of Patti and Occasions. Even though we live in the UK, Patti arranged everything for us via email and was always available to help answer any questions that we had. Patti made the arrangements stress free, even down to making a phone call to us on the morning of the wedding, confirming everything again, explaining what to expect, where we would meet the minister and the photographer and making sure my lovely bouquet arrived in plenty of time. We had an absolutely fantastic day. Oakes Garden Theatre is a great location with lovely photograph opportunities. Andrew, the Minister and Anthony our Photographer were amazing and helped to make the day even more special. It was a really hot day, and Anthony looked after our guests whilst taking photographs and kept them in the shade in between shoots. We loved our wedding, and we couldn’t have made it as special as it was without the help of Patti. Thank you so much. I will post some photographs of our wonderful day.

Jay-Anne Forsyth – August 7, 2013

Patti and her team were very pleasant and accommodating. She worked with us every step of the way and made planning our wedding a breeze. The Rev. and his wife were very kind people and the photographer was amazing, not only at taking photos but with our children as well, as he watched them for us during our ceremony. I highly recommend their service to anyone who wants a wedding in the Niagara Falls region. Thanks Again!

Liman Dai, November 26, 2013, Niagara Falls

Great service! Yu and I would like to express our deepest Thank-You for all your help, patience and ideas during the wedding planning and ceremony! Everything went perfect during the wedding ceremony. Everyone I dealt with was so helpful and friendly and you all helped to make the build up to the big day stress free! PS: I loved my bouquet very much. People loved the ceremony decor.

Kristen Grays – September 6, 2013, Niagara Falls

On September 6, 2013 I married my best friend and love of my life. The whole day was perfect! We definitely couldn’t have done it without Patti and the whole team at Occasions in Niagara. As a first time bride I really had no clue where to start but Patti took me through it step by step. The hardest decision I had to make was what color shoes I wanted to wear. Also gotta send a shout out to Anthony! Our pictures turned out great and we even got them two days sooner than expected. :p All in all amazing experience!

Pam LeBo – July 14, 2013, Niagara Falls

We are from Metro Detroit, and knew we needed a coordinator for our Niagara Falls Wedding on the Canadian side. After researching several companies, I chose Occasions in Niagara. I’m so glad I did. Our Wedding was outside at the Oakes Garden Theater . Our wedding was perfect. Patti took care of every arrangement needed, and we just sat back and enjoyed the day. Our photographer went above and beyond to capture the ceremony. With all the beautiful backdrops available at the garden, which Anthony knew like the back of his hand, our portrait pictures look like they are out of a Bridal magazine. He also gave us the option of purchasing a dvd of the pictures and printing our own. Anthony was the best part of the package!!!! This Company is the best and only choice.

Brenda Smith, September, 2013, Niagara Falls

Patti is an amazing wedding planner! Our wedding was perfect . It was just what we wanted,. Patti made planning our wedding simple and stress free. Basically all we had to do was show up! The photographer was amazing! Everyone involved was very helpful and kind. We have and will continue to recommend Patti to any and all friends and family, as it was everything we had hoped for.

Mr. and Mrs. Renee and Al Montpellier – September 18, 2013, Niagara Falls

Everything was beyond what we could of imagined! Thank you over and over for all your help Patti! I wish our weekend could of lasted forever! xox
