Calgary Weddings Reviews
We want to thank all of you for the perfect wedding party. It means a lot to us. We will highly recommend you to all our friends and hopefully we will have another chance to have you as our caterer.
Everything Simply Elegant provided was perfect. Peter was prompt and professional during our consultation and very timely and thorough in their responses in the weeks leading up to our wedding – same with Shelley in accounting. I can’t tell you how helpful that is when you’re a bride dealing with many different and hectic vendors. The catering staff and onsite manager the day of the event were so lovely and very professional. They made sure both the bride and groom and coordinator were up to speed on all important matters. Food was served as quickly as possible (and it was delicious) and plates, etc. cleared quickly and quietly after dinner. The midnight snack was awesome and they cut the cake without any notice even when they were trying to wrap up for the night. Really excellent and we’d be happy to give you positive reviews and refer you to our friends. The only thing that would make it better is if paying by credit card came without the service fee. Thanks for everything!
If you’re looking for catering, definitely choose Simply Elegant.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon and Peter who were very kind, respectful and always ready to answer any of my questions.
The food was exceptional and all our guests had only excellent things to say.
The staff went above and beyond! Kind to all the guests, very professional and were constantly checking in to make sure we had everything we needed.
I would absolutely recommend them to my family and friends.
Thank you Simply Elegant for being a part of our special day.
I continue to use their catering whenever I can through work, and would highly recommend them to anyone one looking for exceptional quality, reasonable price and friendly staff wanting to help with any request you might have and then going over and beyond what is expected.
Thank you again to all the staff (and especially Sharon) for making our Wedding Day extra special!
Our wedding was a large wedding of 600 guests! I had a vision of a Parisian glamour themed wedding and was very worried a size this large of a wedding would quickly turn into a nightmare. Let me tell you, I was wrong!
Enter the Wedding Fairy, Sharon Barwick and Simply Elegant owner, Robert Virda.
Sharon is everything you would dream a wedding planner to be. She is empathetic, a great listener, an excellent problem solver (she actually foresees problems before they occur) and an extremely talented artist all in one. Her approach is so refreshing, she will not let you panic, provides creative solutions and is always there to listen to any concern you have, no matter how many you have!
Sharon designed my floral including my bouquet, my bridesmaids’ bouquets, the groomsmen’s boutonnieres, floral at the venue, tables decor, cake table, our wedding party table and much more. All this while providing ways to cut on cost without compromising our vision. Did I mention we had 600 guests?
Sharon and Rob were there for us the entire time helping us plan and providing us with valuable insight. They also learned about our culture and how to address everyone in our family.
On our big day, Rob and Sharon had become a part of the family. Rob came and congratulated us and we felt like we were in great hands.
Sharon was there reminding me to enjoy every moment, look up and smile while going down the stairs and walk with grace, she helped us stick to our schedule to the minute. Really she was my angel guardian that day.
Due to my outfit changes we had a tight schedule, she made sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time and let me tell you; that is no easy task when there are this many individuals to manage!
She even managed my aunt who came from overseas and only spoke French! Yes, Sharon speaks French as well 🙂
I could honestly go on and on about how amazing Rob and Sharon are as well as their talented team who always smiled when they saw us and treated us like family.
If you are thinking about Simply Elegant for your wedding, don’t hesitate. It will be the best decision you made after getting married of course 🙂
