You call them thank you cards. We call them love notes. And yes, we are the kind of wedding planners who keep every single one…
I feel like its going to be hard to sum up just how incredible working with Rare Earth Weddings was for my intimate beach wedding back in September of 2019. I worked with Zoe and she is just a genuinely good person. She is honest, real and kind. I was really really nervous planning my destination wedding, even though I knew it was going to be small and I am in the wedding industry myself as a photographer. I thought it was going to be easy but it turns out, it wasn’t and I was feeling overwhelmed. The decision to hire a day of coordinator was made and let me tell you. BEST INVESTMENT EVER. Prior to the wedding she was so calming and helped ease my anxiety and on the wedding day not only did Zoe make sure that both my husband and I were feed, kept on time and hydrated – she set up this beautiful unexpected little alter for me that was beyond anything I could have wanted to just give me ceremony and space a little extra glow. She made sure a little speaker was ready for music and she worked with me to set up a caterer (prior to the wedding even) and helped me coordinate with my florist and all my 28 guests to make sure the day ran smooth. She set up SUCH a gorgeous space for me in our little cabin and made sure the laid back, simple and romantic vibe was set for my “reception” – she truly went above and beyond and honestly words just don’t do it justice to what she is capable of doing! I literally did nothing but enjoy my day and it felt SO great.
Zoe, thank you for everything. You gals are wonderful and my hope is other couples get to experience the same joy and the ability to just let go and enjoy their day because they have you by their side! Lots of love, The Spencers

I work in project management so in the time leading up to the event I sometimes thought… do I need a planner? The answer, though my experience has only been with Zoe and the Rare Earth team is absolutely.
Zoe helped with an initial free consultation to start putting our Tofino dream into reality and lay down the best vendors for the job. One month out she takes more control, coordinating vendors and making sure we could relax on the morning of the wedding as their team put everything together.As for the event, I am pretty sure she has clones; she was everywhere and everything to all people. Giving lifts to elderly relatives, co-ordinating the backroom food team like a seasoned orchestra composer and at one stage physically building a bridge from driftwood as a rogue wave hit the beach.
We have been to weddings where things ran long and thus things were missed. Our pre-mixed playlist finished at 12.01 with perfect timing. Whilst doing all of this, Zoe came up to myself and my wife a couple of times and asked, ‘Is there anything you need, or anything I can do to help’ which was awesome.
I watched the Wedding Planner the day after our wedding and she even puts J’Lo to shame.
So Thank-you to Zoe (and her team) for making our day so magical. Dale

Words cannot express how truly thankful we are for all of your hard work, late nights and early mornings helping us with our wedding! You were incredible in helping us with this whole process. We feel very lucky to have new friends in Tofino as a result. We love you guys!

There are not enough words to express how amazing my experience working with Rare Earth was! They had originally been recommended to me by a friend who got married in Tofino the summer of 2022, who had nothing but good things to say about her experience as well. The entire team made the whole year of planning leading up the wedding as stress free as possible (talking me down from many stress induced ledges). Once the wedding day finally arrived, I felt so prepared and completely at ease, knowing that all the hard work was done and that the team would just take it over from there to ensure the day ran completely smoothly.. and it did! A major shoutout goes to my girl Madi who kept me sane the day of! Always checking in to make sure I was doing ok and most importantly, eating! Madi you truly were my wedding day angel and I can’t thank you enough. I am still so emotional thinking about our wedding day and how perfect it was…. thank you thank thank you!!

So hard to keep this short but Zoe and her team made planning our elopement in Tofino seamless, fun and incredible. We decided to elope in 75 days and made us feel like it was do-able. From the start they were personable and very responsive. They kept us on track and helped us bring our vision to life (even when we weren’t clear on what that was at times) Their connections with the best vendors in the area helped us secure the reception venue we wanted and reservations for other details. On the day of, Zoe and her team went above and beyond to make the day so special for us and helped take any anxiety off by being organized, clear and thinking of every detail so we could focus on taking it all in. If you are thinking of eloping in Tofino or Ucluelet, Rare Earth Weddings is the first (and probably only) call you need to make!
