The most phenomenal wedding planner!!! The journey that my fiancé and I went through with Libby was amazing. We’ve been together for almost an entire year, having to change the date FOUR TIMES because of covid, Libby handled everything for us so we wouldn’t have to endure any more stress then we already had. Libbys organization, patience and true passion for her work truly presented itself during all the planning and especially on the wedding day itself. She made sure everything went smoothly, and was there for almost 20 hours running around ensuring everyone was doing their part to make our day flawless. We are forever grateful and will cherish the special bond we have created for many years!
Looking forward to a lifetime of events together, we love you!

We had Libby and upon occasion helping us plan the wedding as well being with us the day of, and we got it all done in 30 Days! Don’t think my special day would’ve been so special if it’s not for them. Couldn’t be happier with my decision and will for sure be using them in my next big celebration 🙂
Don’t think twice before reaching out to them, I promise you won’t regret it!
If we could give more stars, we would! Libby at Upon Occasion is the absolute best and went above and beyond to make our wedding beyond our wildest dreams! She made the planning process a breeze and absolutely painless! She has lists of amazing vendors that she has worked with before and have good relations with; all of which were amazing! On the day of the event, she didn’t stop running around to make sure that everything was perfect and went down without a hitch! She is extremely organized, diligent, and responsive; everything that you need in a wedding planner! Throughout the whole process she truly had our best interest in mind! We cannot wait to continue our relationship with her as she has truly become a part of our family!
Consummate Professional…Unflappable…Organised…Experienced…detail oriented…Personable… A Class Act! These are just a few of the many adjectives that I could apply to Libby and my experience in working with her. I found Libby during an online search while attempting to plan my son’s Bar Mitzvah on my own in the mist of COVID, 1.5 months before the event date. By the time I reached out to an event planner I was already anxious and over my head. I had a relatively small budget to work with. Libby made me feel right away like my budget would be sufficient to have an event that would rival any, and that I wouldn’t have to compromise my vision for my son’s day.
Without any commitment that I would sign with her Libby made an appointment to come to my home on the other side of the city to meet with my family so she could get to know us and put together a tentative vision for our day. She arrived on time and within the hour had an outline for a theme, ideas for venues, décor, food etc. mapped out. She did not try to pressure us to go with her, she told us to look around if we liked. I signed up with her within 24 hours, I knew she was the right fit for our family.
With just over a month to the big day Libby hit the ground running. Libby saved not only my sanity but hours in research and phone calls. She organised meetings with the venue and vendors, took care of the contracts, negotiated competitive pricing and even got them to throw in little extras. I could see she had an excellent rapport with the vendors, which showed on the day of the event as the vendors, venue, décor, food, music, photography and videography were all superb and professional.
Throughout the process, Libby had to contend with changing COVID restrictions, and changing guest numbers as guests changed their minds between in person vs. virtual attendance. Libby remained in constant contact with me over the course of the month, I never had to guess what was going on or where she was in her timeline. Libby kept a close eye on the budget advising me what was good value verses something that would be nice to have, but not necessary, as it wouldn’t make or break the day.
On the day of the event, I didn’t have to think or worry about anything but enjoying myself. Libby and her contractors arrived early and transformed the venue into a masterpiece. We received so many compliments from our guests about what a wonderful job she did. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart isn’t even enough, I consider myself lucky and blessed to have found you….Lara

Libby is Spectacular! Everything I could have wished and hoped for in a Wedding Planner. I must have interviewed the entire city before I found Libby and have never looked back. I expect Libby will be planning my events for many years to come and my kids’ weddings as well, lol. She knows her business and does it extremely well. She was very attentive and knowledgeable and kept the wedding on budget and schedule making sure that every little detail was taken care of, from providing all of the incredible vendors she uses to pinning on boutonnieres.
Libby listened to our needs, matched us with the right vendors so we got our dream wedding! Our wedding was truly beautiful, more so than I had even imagined it to be. The vendors, venue, food, music, photography and videography were out of this world.
Most impressive was the short time frame we were working with, Libby came through in less than 1 month. Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding and how amazing it was. My husband and I were truly blessed to find Libby, she is reliable and caring and we are so grateful for her talents and experience, we really couldn’t have done it without her.
We would highly recommend Libby for any event.
Alisa & Alexander
Libby, We can’t thank you enough! Working with you was an absolute dream from start to finish. From the moment we first met with you we knew that we could trust you to execute on our vision. We were so impressed with how you handled our vendor meetings and made suggestions to suit our vision before we could even ask. We appreciate your attention to detail, you taking the time to understand us, and your genuine enthusiasm for what you do. You worked so well with all of our vendors and we were so relaxed on our wedding day because we knew we were in good hands. I know not many couples can say they felt relaxed on their wedding day. But that is just what makes you! We feel that in less than one month you have created one of the nicest events! Thanks for you hard work!
Alona & Daniel
Libby and her team at Upon Occasion helped me plan and execute an unforgettable day. From the moment we started planning, it was fun and stress-free. Libby recommended the best vendors for the best price saving me hours and hours of research. Libby and her team are very organized, punctual and methodical. She covered all details, even the minor ones. During the months of planning, Upon Occasion was regularly keeping in touch with all the vendors, making sure all is taken care of for the big day. On the day of, Libby and her team arrived at the venue early in the morning. With her professional eye, the team transformed the venue into a work of art, leaving me time to get ready and not worry about the set up. The event turned out better than we could have expected. Every minute was accounted for and Libby orchestrated everything seamlessly. Thank you Upon Occasion!
I can’t speak highly enough of Libby & Upon Occasion’s event planning. I had my wedding August 25th, 2019 and it truly could not have come together without her. She was there throughout every step of the planning process, from conception to execution. She recommended the best vendors, helped us get the necessary permits, and helped us negotiate the most competitive pricing! We had a complex wedding with a private & public ceremony, same day edit, professional dance number, a gender revel, and a henna! Libby made sure the whole day went like clockwork – and that I was stress free! Thank you for your incredible effort, professionalism, and help!! 10/10 would recommend Libby to anyone who’s planning an event. Thank you!
Lina and Nir
If I had to describe the experience we had with Libby, it would take me a week to write it all down. In short, it was flawless and the end result was spectacular!! If I could give her 10/5, I would. From the very first meeting to the very last, she was professional, fun, organized and very meticulous. During the year of planning my wedding, she became my secound mother, and I would share everything with her, the good, the bad and the ugly and she went the super extra mile to ensure that both my hubby and I had our dream wedding. We couldn’t of pulled it all off without her and we will forever be greatful to Libby for her amazing talents, support and professionalism. Thank you, love R&J
Rina and John
Libby is a very thorough wedding planner. She met with us many times to ensure the success of the wedding. She brought forth many great ideas that are easily overlooked but which contributed to the success of the wedding. She was very friendly with all the other vendors and made sure that each of them was carrying out their duties as expected and on time. She also brought her own items when, on the wedding day, were not present. Libby was instrumental in ensuring the wedding was a success.
Svetlana and David
Libby, Thank you so much for all of your help, advice, guidance and support during our wedding planning process. You made all the overwhelming and daunting tasks manageable and made our special day one that we will both never forget. Your impeccable taste and attention to detail was amazing. We can’t thank you enough for being such a huge part of our day and making it all come together. It was even more perfect than we had hoped! If anyone is looking for an extremely diligent, organized, and professional wedding coordinator with a passion for her clients, then I would strongly encourage you to contact Libby!
Melinda and Thomas
Libby Eydelman and her team at Upon Occasion were an absolutely invaluable resource throughout the entire wedding planning process. Libby was readily accessible, professional, hard-working, and extremely knowledgeable. Coordinating a wedding is an enormous undertaking. Corners cannot afford to be cut. With Libby and Upon Occasion, we could rest assured that all of the details, both large and small, would be attended to. Libby follows up with all vendors, ensures everyone arrives on time and in the correct location, verifies contracts, responds to emails with courtesy and timeliness, and offers excellent suggestions for making the day special! The four meetings we had with Libby were efficient and enlightened us regarding what arrangements were imperative to focus on. We could have easily booked her for more meetings, and less than four, in our opinion, would be doing yourself a great disservice. Finally, the day of our wedding went off without a hitch. Libby made certain to take care of every single thing and allowed us to be completely present with each other as well as our guests. The itinerary Libby organized with us was perfect, and our entire day from morning to the final song of the night went beautifully. We would very highly recommend Libby Eydelman and Upon Occasion to be your next special events planner.
Natalie and Matthew
Professionalism, knowledgeable, assertive, focused, and experienced.
Caitlin & Peter
Amazing!!! I attended my brother’s wedding this past weekend and was super impressed by Upon Occasion’s professionalism, genuine care, going above and beyond what was required and expected, and a very pleasant interaction with Libby who was just so wonderful and respectful to my whole family. W.O.W is all I have to say – recommended 100000%
Great planner! Libby was very professional. She walked me through the process from the beginning of the planning all the way until the end of the wedding . She was always available for answering questions, explained things clearly and was very detailed oriented. We would definitely recommend her! Alec and Rivi
Rivi & Alec
If you are planning an event, there is only one name you need to know — Libby Eydelman. Words cannot express the level of professionalism and work dedication. Weddings can be stressful but Libby manages to take the stress away and replace it with reassurance and simplicity. A true professional. Look no further. A BIG thank you!
Viktoria & Steven
We hired Libby to help plan our wedding that just passed on June 3rd 2018 and she was outstanding! She was there every step along the way going over every detail with me and the day turned out even better than I could have even imagined!!! Libby was always very sweet and attentive and an absolute pleasure to work with and I can’t even imagine how I would have gotten through all the details without her! I would absolutely recommend her for anyone else who is planning their special day!!!
Faina & Denis Charapov
We hired Libby to plan our wedding that took place on March 11 2018. The wedding was great as she promised. She did everything in her power to get things done like we wanted. The best wedding planner strongly recommend!!!
Evlin & Israel Kaplan
Libby was recommended to me by a friend whose wedding I attended last year. We really appreciated Libby’s foresight into the event and vision. She worked really hard to make sure our dream wedding came into fruition. We went by her recommendations and didn’t question them. Every vendor we met and told them we work with Libby they always said oh she is the best. That was very reassuring especially planning one of the most important days of your life. Lastly, a word of advice when Libby says “trust me I know what I am doing” actually trust her because she is the hardest working and passionate person and absolutely loves her job and knows what she is talking about.
Gabrielle & Marcus Joo
Libby, you did a fantastic job! The party was gorgeous, elegant and went without a glitch. Finally I got to see you in action first hand and I was really impressed. You are the best and you can organize my events anytime! Congratulations to all!
We were planning a wedding for about 240 people in Toronto from our home in Chicago. We tried to handle most of the planning and as we got closer to the wedding date we knew we would need help with the day of coordination. The last thing we wanted was to feel overwhelmed. We reached out to Libby and were very impressed with her professionalism and responsiveness.
She did a great job of coordinating with our vendors and providing a timeline that was easy to follow for the big day. There were a few surprises along the way but Libby took charge and addressed them right away. Libby helped to make the day an enjoyable one that we will never forget!
I would like to say thank you to Libby from “Upon Occasion” for helping organize our Big Birthday Party. Libby, I really appreciate your positive and upbeat attitude. You are very patient, resourceful, reasonable and accessible. You know inside out every step of the process to organize an amazing party! I am very happy that I have followed your directions, that allowed me to be free from stress of the logistics and really enjoy my party!
Libby is AMAZING! I started planning my wedding about 1 year ago. She is so professional and organized. I was a busy bride, so it was important for me to get a lot of help from the wedding planner, and she did more than that. She made sure that we booked the bigger items like DJ, MC, venue, florist as early as possible and I was able to relax and focus on my exams for a few month. The vendors she recommended are very client orientated.
We connected with the photographer right away and booked them within the first meeting. The decor turned out so pretty and my friends are still talking about it a few weeks after the wedding. The flow of the entire night is perfect, everyone was in a great mood, and it’s just so on point, not too long, too boring, too much speech till the point people just want to leave. all my guests had a great time. She really did above an beyond for what she charger for.
Teresa & Yichaeo
Libby, I honestly can’t thank you enough! Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality. Everything was taken care of and I never had to worry about one thing. Thank you for always responding to my questions in a timely manner and making sure everything was PERFECT! Everyone had a fantastic time at our wedding because you were there the entire night making sure everything was running smoothly. Thank you for being so organized and always staying on top of things. I never ever had to remind you about anything! You were a pleasure to work with and I am really sad that we won’t be having anymore meetings.
Gabriella & Eric
Libby is AMAZING not only as a wedding planner but also as a person. Having never planned wedding before I had no idea about the first things and steps I needed to do. All I knew was only the venue were we planned to hold our wedding. By the time we hired Libby we had 2,5 months before the wedding. She took the whole process under control and helped us to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept my husband and me on track for our big day. Through the planning process, Libby was attentive, organized, resourceful and punctual. Libby made our wedding day perfect.
Libby thank you so much for all of your help, advice, guidance and support during our wedding planning process. You made all the overwhelming and daunting tasks manageable and made our special day one that we will both never forget.
I highly recommend Libby absolutely to anyone who wants to have a beautiful and unforgettable celebration.
Aida & Ashley
I have no words to describe how happy I am that I hired you to plan my daughters Bat Mitzvah. You made her dreams come true. We could not have imagined a better party!
You took all our ideas and brought them to life! So much work was done in such a short period of time. You put your heart and soul into every detail!
You are full of ideas and creativity. Amazing job!!!! I have no words to describe how thankful I am to you for everything. I Highly recommend Upon Occasion
Hiring Libby was one of the best decisions we’ve made for our PERFECT 300 people & 9 vendor wedding.
If you want your event to run smoothly, meticulously organized, and have all vendors on the same page, while having someone to rely on in case there are literally ANY questions, then Libby is your dream come true. Every single aspect of working with Libby was exceptional: she was professional, organized, punctual, supportive, and most importantly experienced.
Libby’s experience shines through her work, she knows exactly who to call, what to ask and what to do next. She had everything prepared in advance for every meeting, asked the right questions, and resolved A TON of problems the day of the wedding between vendors. If you think you don’t need a planner like Libby, you’re super mistaken.
There are things you won’t be able to control or see during your wedding, and you’ll need someone to do all that lifting and be your eyes and ears to make everything run flawlessly. It was said that we had one of the best events of the year, and we highly highly commend Libby for that. Without a doubt, don’t think twice, and go with the best wedding planner in Toronto – Upon Occassion.
Thank you Libby!
Vlad & Angelina
We hired Upon Occasion a week before the wedding and Libby, the owner, was able to put everything together within such a short time. We were worried that our ceremony would be a mess due to our large bridal party, but with Libby’s organization and firmness (that was truly needed) we were able to get everyone together for the rehearsals and as a result everything went smoothly and our ceremony was perfect!! She is prompt, professional, and knows what she is doing.
Thank you Libby!!
Marina & Reuven
My husband and I are so happy to have chosen Libby from Upon Occasion to be our wedding planner in 2014. She has greatly exceeded our expectation. My husband and I met Libby in 2013 through an introduction from our photographer. As I fell sick, we needed help in the wedding planning process. As I am a project manager for over a decade, I do have a strong expectation in the skill set of our wedding planner.
Libby is extremely seasoned in the wedding industry and we truly value her honesty throughout the wedding planning process to ensure we are making the right decision. Her network of vendors have helped us to save cost in various areas. Just like you, you probably feel these vendors may not be your fit but trust me, Libby’s network of vendors are all highly recommended in the industry and their work carries quality and cost effective.
Not only Libby was able to carry out our dreams with the numerous amount of vendors we have requested – ranging from cake, decorations, musicians, and the various entertainers. The venue we chosen was not a typical banquet hall which makes it challenging for some of our vendors. Libby has meticulously created the itinerary (which was changed well over 20 times), on the day of the wedding, the wedding was carried out as per the itinerary. Our arrival was late and our ushers were late, Libby immediately not only acted as our wedding planner, she acted as our ushers to ensure our guests are seated comfortably.
We are truly blessed to have met Libby and hiring her was the best thing we have done for our wedding, we couldn’t think of anyone else that will do a better job. She truly hustled for us on our wedding day and making the special day such a special moment for us, one that we will remember for the rest of our lives!
Sherry & Damon
Hiring Upon Occasion to assist me in organizing my son’s bar – mitzvah was the best investment I ever made!
Upon Occasion provides professional, efficient, expert, trustworthy, and knowledgeable services. I have planned many parties in the past and for the first time I got sit back, relax and enjoy the show at my own party.
I was worry – free, stress-free, and felt confident in Libby to handle any unforseen issues. She provides an atmosphere that allows myself as the host to enjoy the party and entertain the guests, while she takes care of all the details that make the night go smoothly, fun and unforgettable for everyone!
Now that I have experienced the services Libby has to offer I feel like I cheated myself out of getting the full enjoyment from my events.
I am so grateful and thankful for all of Libby’s help in making my son’s bar mitzvah a great success. From the tiniest detail to the biggest possible disaster, Libby handles it all and I couldn’t have done it without her!
Libby is the eyes for things you cannot see, the mind for stuff you didn’t think of and the person you need there to make an absolute perfect event!
Both me and my husband feel extremely fortunate that Libby planned our special day. From the very beginning Libby was approachable, professional and extremely effective. She put an incredible amount of time into planning our wedding (could not overemphasize this point) and went far and beyond of what I would ever expect from a wedding planner. She also connected me with vendors that provided incredible services ( I have never seen a wedding with more plentiful and beautiful flowers until my wedding) at reasonable prices. She has impeccable taste and made wonderful suggestions how to make my wedding more beautiful. During the planning of our wedding I was struggling with a medical condition and a very busy medial practice and Libby just made it all easier and possible for me. We got married at a beautiful restaurant where, unfortunately, the owners were not well organized or professional and I struggled with this but Libby took care of things to decrease my levels of stress. Importantly, both of our mothers who one could call old school and not easy to please were impressed with her hard work and commitment to our wedding. In the end, our wedding day was beautiful, stress free and everything turned out so much better than I could have ever anticipated thanks to Libby. We could not recommend her enough and will be forever thankful.
Marijana & Perica
Working with Libby was effortless. Professional, organized, creative, and friendly only begin to describe her skills. Libby made the most important day of my life a dream come true! She went above and beyond on several occasions and always made me feel so important.
When the big day arrived, everything was AMAZING and went perfectly thanks to Libby and her dedicated team at Upon Occasion! I not only met and worked with the best wedding planner in the industry, but I also made a friend for life.
To our fantastic, absolutely amazing wedding coordinator, Libby Eydelman,
We can’t express the gratitude for all that you’ve done for us. You made our day exactly the way we always imagined it would. You always go above and beyond, your advice, and expertise is flawless. We are so blessed to have had you by our side, every step of the way. If we could do it all again, we couldn’t have ask for a better person to be with us, and to share the biggest day of our lives. You truly became a dear friend to us, and we can’t thank you enough.
You were so amazing so fantastic and so caring and supporting. We couldn’t thank you enough for everything! You’ve made our day run so smooth exactly the way we imagined it would. We are so happy you were by our side every step of the way. We love you so much XOXO <3
Irena & Roman
You are the best gift a couple planning a wedding could give themselves.
Thank you for going far and beyond your role. This became evident when we found out that you single handedly cleaned up all the geese droppings at the front porch of our church while our ceremony was taking place inside. You wanted our wedding to be perfect and you accomplished it. Everything was on time and flowed smoothly. It felt effortless and easy because of your commitment to our happiness.
Saying thank you can’t express enough our gratitude for your professionalism and caring touch.
Roza & Paolo
Words cannot express our gratitude to you for all your help leading up to and the day of our wedding. Your time, counselling, valuable advice, and most importantly patience through all the craziness is truly appreciated. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping us on track and sane.
Stella & Boris
I’d like to thank you for your invaluable efforts, knowledge and tireless enthusiasm in helping us organize the Lioness Woman’s Club Charitable Foundation Gala in November of 2011 at Chateau Le’Jardin. Your hard work, dedication and attention to detail played a big role in making our event such a success.
From my first meeting with Libby, it was immediately apparent that I would choose her to help plan my wedding. She came into the first meeting with many wonderful ideas, but more importantly, she took the time to get to know me and my fiancé as a couple and helped us begin to visualize what we wanted our wedding day to look like and feel like. Libby was a consummate professional, she not only handled our flowers, linenes, table settings, guest lists, venue contract and other important details, she also kept us organized with our small tasks and time lines that were necessary for the wedding to come off as we hoped. She even went out of her way to help my family organize my bridal shower! Not only did I have the wedding of my dreams, I also got to make a lifelong friend in the process. Thank you Libby and Upon Occasion for all your hard work!
