Very professional and the sweetest to work with! Made our wedding journey such a breeze! I don't know how I could have survived my wedding day without her and her team, all professional and kind. They handled situations perfectly! Hasti from La Vista Events saved my life, I live in Las Vegas and was planning my wedding in Vancouver, Canada and without her my wedding planning and day would have been a complete mess. I received many great deals from local vendors through hiring La Vista Events. Hasti worked side by side with me and made sure my wedding day was exactly what my dream wedding consisted of, she knew all the right touches that added to my special day. Hasti is very very very organized! Our schedule for the wedding that she put together was very impressive!!! She made it to all of my meetings during the month of my wedding (as the month-of wedding planner), and asked questions that I would have never thought to ask. Truthfully, I never imagined hiring a wedding planner. I wasn't even thinking about hiring one until my fiancé (now husband) pushed me to go with her and I can't even picture my day without her. She made all our families feel like guests at my wedding and she and her team was constantly checking up on all of our guests and making sure they were enjoying their night. I even lost my phone the night of my wedding during our picture session and the girls on Hasti's team tracked it down and it was returned to me the next day. There are no words to describe how above and beyond these girls went for me, my husband, and both of our families!!!! Lots of love Hasti! Rahmtin and I are so happy with all your hard work!

Hasti is a dear friend of mine who I met while in university. We both connected via our mutual love for weddings and we both dreamt of our big day even prior to being engaged ourselves. Hiring a wedding planner was a no brainer for me. To truly experience the wedding day itself without having to worry about what goes on behind the scenes, staying on schedule, etc. requires an invaluable planner. There isn’t anyone that I would trust more to assist with my big day other than Hasti. She’s just like me in the sense that she’s detail-oriented, organized, professional, and dedicated in what she does. I value her friendship, knowledge, technical skills, and experience within the industry and I could not have imagined this process without her.
Hasti will gain an understanding of what you need and require and tailor a package towards your needs. She’s there for you every step of the process if you ever need help getting started, to recommend vendors, and to follow up with your progress. Her online tools for seating charts, guest lists, budgeting, etc. are indispensable and streamlined tedious tasks which made them much more manageable. We hired Hasti for day-of management for our wedding in Kelowna. She stepped in 6 weeks prior to the wedding to create the finalized timeline, prepare a final checklist, communicate with vendors, and facilitate the rehearsal and day-of coordination. I was blown away by the amount of detail Hasti includes in her timelines and all the different versions she tailors towards different vendors and for the families and bridal party.
I genuinely enjoyed every moment of planning our wedding with Hasti whether that was via texts, emails, phone calls, Whatsapp, or Instagram messages. A week before the wedding, Hasti prepared our final checklist for us to make sure that we knew exactly what was left to be done. She got in touch with all of our vendors, emailed out the final timelines (after many revisions which she may or may not have been happy with…), and made sure that we were ready for the day. She brought along the best assistant who loved on us and who also shared a strong love for the theme of our wedding, “Beauty and the Beast”, and we felt beyond prepared.
The day-of coordination from the La Vista Events team was absolutely incredible. Hasti checked in with our bridal party and all of our vendors to make sure that we were adhering to the timeline. She made sure to allow time for my husband and I to have time to ourselves in the midst of all the busy from the day, and she was attentive to our needs. Any stressful situations (and there were many!), she handled with kindness, poise, and professionalism and she shielded me from any unnecessary stressors so that my husband and I could just enjoy our day to the fullest. With all that, she found ways to accommodate last minute delays which even included her having to break it down on the dance floor! She did all this while planning for a separate 2-day event back in Vancouver. If she did not tell me, I would have never known.
There was never a moment where I felt like she wasn’t there for us. Her passion drives her to be the best that she can be. She would never admit it, but she is phenomenal at what she does. The amount of praise that I have received from family, friends, and vendors about her makes my heart sing because she deserves it all. There was no one more that I could have trusted to help coordinate the biggest day of our lives and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a planner. We could never thank you enough, Hasti.

Hasti is amazing at what she does. I have never seen someone who puts so much detail and planning into something. She is a true professional in an industry that is hard pressed to find quality such as her. She did a great job at my wedding and her team was equally as competent. I would recommend her to any newly engaged couples!

My husband and I found Hasti through Instagram during our late night insta browsing. Was it ever a blessing! Hasti made the wedding planning process easy and fun. From midnight text messages to numerous emails, every question we had was answered promptly. She also ensured the vendor’s interest was nothing less than positive and only delivered the best. We appreciated her referrals and ability to get us the best deal and best vendors.
Leading up to the wedding, my anxiety started hitting the roof, Hasti worked with me to calm my nerves and assured me everything would work out. The big day arrived and was I ever blown away. Hasti and her team spent endless hours, pre wedding day, coordinating the vendors and setting everything up to perfection. She made sure no details were missed and understood how important the day was to us. She was front and centre at all times.
During the event, the La Vista team fluffed our dresses, fixed the bow ties and made sure everyone was looking fabulous all night long. Hasti’s positive energy, passion, and dedication to her clients are just a couple of traits that make her a standout planner. Thank you for everything La Vista. You are true angels.

Dear Hasti, thank you so much for being our wedding planner. You are truly amazing and you are the main reason that our wedding was so magical and perfect. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for all your work and help to make our special day a dream come true. You are the best! Thank you for spending so many hours before the wedding with Elise, for making sure the day was perfect, and for your warm and kind heart. You will be highly recommended by us forever. Thank you so much, Hasti. Lots of love!

After having Hasti help with our Shangri-La engagement party, I knew I wanted her for every step of the wedding planning as well. During the entire wedding planning process Hasti was a true professional but the best part was that she also acted as a friend. She was calm, patient, and creative. No matter what we requested, Hasti made sure the vision came true. Even if it came to the smallest details that didn't matter but if it was something we wanted, she made it happen as she knew it would be important to us.
Hasti kept us organized using an online planning workbook. She broke down the many tasks into smaller pieces, and was constantly checking in with us via group chats to made sure we weren't overwhelmed. She helped with various design elements, kept us on track, and allowed us (and our families) to truly relax on the wedding day. Given that we had such a large, intricate wedding she even made sure to stay at the hotel the night before and night of the wedding with one of her assistants so that she could be there for the band's late-night set-up, assist with the sofreh set-up, and be there from the second we started hair & make-up to the very end of the night when all guests had left.
Hasti and her team worked tirelessly with love and energy which we appreciated so much. I know Hasti had to deal with many different and constantly changing requests from family members but she was respectful and made sure they all felt included and important. Our families still compliment her services and her professional team, and the execution of the wedding day to the minute - which is rare for a Persian wedding. Not only did she give us what we wanted, but she went above and beyond. Every single family and friend who commented on our wedding would tell us that we had the best planner. She made our wedding absolutely perfect and we couldn't have asked for anyone better.

Where do I even begin, Hasti has played such a huge role in the seamless planning of our wedding, when we had an unexpected venue change, Hasti stepped right in to help out, even though we had initially only hired her for day-of coordination. After that, we knew that it would be much more valuable having her during the final month as well to help in the re-planning of our wedding. Keeping our budget in mind, she presented several ideas for various design and décor elements. She sourced the necessary vendors we needed and coordinated everything seamlessly – always keeping us in the loop when needed and filtering the many emails and meetings she had without us. My husband and I both work demanding full-time jobs so it was such a relief having an extra hand during the planning process.
For the longest time, we didn’t even know how many other couples Hasti and her team had on the go. During the planning process, she made us feel like we were her only client as she gave us the attention we needed to feel as relaxed as possible.
On the day of our wedding, Hasti and her team were there to attend to not only my needs, but also there to support our parents and wedding party with any special requests. They worked the day with smiling faces and much patience from start to finish. I was beyond happy with their service, I literally could not have pulled off such a fabulous day without them. I still have friends and family asking who my wedding planner was because they were so impressed with the work Hasti and her team did.
The La Vista Events team was so amazing, I think every couple should have Hasti and her team on their wedding. Thank you so much!!!

Hasti came highly recommended to us, and I can see why. She was an outstanding wedding planner. She went above and beyond to create all the little details to ensure I had my dream wedding. She never said no to any task and had great ideas about decor and style. My husband was hesitant to hire a wedding planner, but by the time our wedding was complete he said "we never could have pulled this off without her".
Hasti was so easy to communicate with, totally available, and kept us entirely on task. From my side of things, the wedding day went so smoothly: I had no worries on the day knowing everything was being expertly coordinated by Hasti and La Vista wedding planning. My wedding party still makes reference to her perfect colour coordinated schedule. I highly recommend Hasti to anyone considering a wedding planner - you could not be in better hands!

Hasti was my life saver. She managed to take every ounce of stress out of the day for us. Knowing I not only had a friend but an amazing professional to bring together our special day was one of the best choices we made. Hasti's efforts kept us running smooth all day, even through the torrential downpour (my biggest fear leading up to the day).
Without Hasti and her amazing team I would have been lost, she took the time to make sure the best outcome possible and kept us on schedule. All I had to worry about was how intensely overjoyed I was from just marrying the absolute love of my life.

Modern Ismaili Wedding // The Nest at UBC
Captured by Belluxe Photography - featured in Cultural Wedding Magazine
Farouk and I were living in Tanzania while planning the wedding. As it is wedding planning is an uphill climb, but for a wedding that was taking place across oceans with a guest count of nearly 400 people we knew we would need an ‘all hands on deck’ type of attitude. That is exactly why we hired Hasti and her La Vista Events team. Hasti planned our wedding end to end “virtually”, from building a budget, introducing us to trusted vendors, getting us preferred vendor rates, organizing bi-monthly skype calls to making sure we were on track - Hasti made sure that our excel sheets and pinterest vision boards came to life on the day of the wedding.
Thinking back on the one and half years of planning, Hasti literally dropped everything to make sure she was dedicated to us during our short trips home before the wedding. Hasti ensured Farouk and I were at ease throughout the journey and made us feel that she was literally only a skype call or whatsapp message away.
On the day of the wedding, Hasti and her team were by our side the entire time, reminding us to breathe, handing us tissues all while making sure the ceremony and events ran smoothly. As I walked down the aisle, I had not a care in the world about how the rest of the day would play out as I knew that Hasti and her team were there, keeping us informed when required or otherwise using their best judgement just to make sure that the day was ours.
Through Hasti we met incredible vendors, some of which became more like friends in the end. These vendors transformed our reception venue into an incredibly, beautiful, romantic and intimate space beyond what I could have ever expected. Hasti and her team insisted that Farouk and I had a few minutes at the venue before the guests came- and we are so thankful for this. With all of the excitement going on that day, having a few minutes alone together in such a breath taking space and see our vision come to life, is a moment we will never forget.
With a month into married life, Farouk and I are still talking about the wedding and are still amazed by how the day went better than we could have ever imagined. Without Hasti’s incredible attention to detail and her priority of putting us and our wishes first, our wedding would not have been as special as it was. We are incredibly grateful to La Vista Events to making sure that both Farouk and I will continue to look back on our wedding day as by far the best day of our lives.
Now that the wedding is over, we look forward to many more lunches with Hasti…but this time without the To Do lists!
