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!

Blended Love // Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver

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!

Luxe Love// The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

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!!!

Storybook Romance // Cecil Green Park House

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
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!
