Love to Love was referred to me by a friend, while I was in panic mood to try and work out who was going to set up and be point of contact on the day of our wedding.
Initial I had decided to not go ahead with a wedding planner as it was out of our budget. However Jason was kind enough to met with us and his ability to settle the nerves and outline what would happen along with his flexibility to met within our budget, made it easy to reconsider and sign up.
We (I mean me) asked Jason a number of endless questions and help for ideas/quotes. I think from memory I asked something like 20 questions in one day. But Jason was always patient and understanding and more than happy to walk me through the process. He was at all time professional but also friendly.
Our wedding day went smoothly and we were never made aware or any issues. Jason was there ensured we were completely unaware of anything that was not important. During our break between the ceremony and reception we had not arranged for any entertainment, but with his quick thinking along with our MC they arrange for games to take place while we were gone.
The night went seamlessly and everything went to plan. We would go out and say if it was not for Love 2 Love and Jason I am sure I would have been a panicking mess and the day would not have gone so smoothly.
We would highly recommend Love 2 Love; you are guaranteed to receive 5 Star services with absolute professionals who also make you feel comfortable.
We can’t thank you enough for all your help on our special day. We appreciate it more than you will ever know and will be happy to recommend you to anyone. – Nic & Leigh
Thank you very much for all your hard work at making our dream wedding a reality. I know at times it was a challenge especially logistically but we were both so impressed at how it turned out.
We both really appreciated the guidance and organisation that you provided before and on the day. – Lianne & Jason
I cannot recommend Jason Kates and Love 2 Love more highly. Jase is an incredibly attentive, warm, organised and enthusiastic wedding organiser. Out of everyone we hired for our wedding Jason was absolutely the most important and most indispensable. We arranged our wedding in Sydney Botanic Gardens from London and Jase made it not only possible but a most wonderful day.
If you are looking for a wedding planner with superb taste, who will suggest lovely ideas that are entirely to your taste and within your budget, Jase is your guy. He really listened to what we wanted and was very sensitive to our (small!) budget. Jason suggested fantastic service providers, and negotiated outstanding prices with them. And no job was too big or small for Jase, in fact I had to stop him from driving to Ikea on our behalf during his own time to pick up some blankets for us! He is also extremely reliable- we phoned Jason at strange times due to the time difference and he was always there, and always very responsive by email too.
Further, Jase identified and solved all kinds of problems I didn’t even know we had! Things like the logistics for keeping the wine and beer cold, and the fact we needed to style the ugly green poles of the verandah where our reception was held. He really did think of everything!
On the day itself Jason was incredibly calming and attentive. He made the day run seamlessly and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Several friends of mine have said that their one regret after their wedding day was that they hadn’t had someone else to bring it together and so had spent the day feeling stressed with questions from caterers and concerns about keeping to time. We didn’t have even a moment of that. We walked down the aisle after the ceremony and Jason greeted us with champagne and the rest of the day was one enormous celebration. Many of our guests had travelled from afar, and as Jason was there coordinating everything so expertly and discreetly, we were free to focus on our guests which was just ideal.
Jason is a brilliant wedding planner. He is incredibly skilled at all aspects of wedding planning from the logistics and styling to the coordination of the day itself. On top of his expertise and talent he is a genuinely lovely man. We so enjoyed working with Jason to plan our wedding and we had the most magical and joyous wedding day. Enormous thanks, Jason and Love 2 Love. – Anglea & Jake
I cannot express in words how grateful I am that I found you. Thanks to you, Mario and I had our dream wedding. You truly allowed me to enjoy my day without an ounce of stress. Thank you for simply being amazing and as on top of things as you are. You are an AMAZING person. – Best wishes, Mario and Kristin
Everything was stunning! It was everything we could have ever imagined and I know that we never felt stressed or like something was going to go wrong. We think a big part of that was that we knew that you had everything under control! You were amazing to work with, and we can’t imagine anyone better than you to plan a wedding with!— Erin and Jake
Co. founder of Love2Love, Jason Kates has been inspired by his own wedding this year, to help create from the simplest weddings to a wedding you dream of. I came to learn this as I had great pleasure being a guest on Friday 6th September, 2013.
With Jason’s passion, high attention to detail and experience in event planning, everyone was made to feel glamorous, special and inspired to have fun as well as celebrating a true love James and Jason share.
From the amazing invitations featuring, Kath and Kym to a heartfelt Ceremony and table decorations incorporating a napkin tuxedo thank you card an Eiffel Tower keepsake symbolizing their honeymoon to Paris, I love you Guylian Belgian Chocolates for sentimental memories of the grooms first date and a table card with famous gay icons, a photo workshop for guest to capture the night and a gluten free candy bar, this was one special wedding other then my own.
