Dear Julia Thank you and Francis for your care and companionship all way through this experience. I say companionship, because you truly and genuinely offered kind of attention and care that a friend does. There are so many great qualities in your support that made our day and our planning’s towards it absolutely wonderful. Attention to every small detail that mattered to us, your calmness and being organized and ahead of things with positive attitude at all time, and willing to solve all of the problems that came across were some of those qualities that we can confidently say that what a great support we had. very pleased to know you and have your help and support. warm wishes
Great flair of being organized and efficient. I would recommend it to anyone who plan to have a successful event and worry-free. Fortune events ensured me that we didn’t have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding and I knew I was in great hands when we first talk. Our day was perfect because of Fortune Events.
Our wedding planners Fortune Events were very helpful in the process of planning our wedding! The vendors they suggested did a great job, especially the florist. I didn’t even go to the flower shop myself because I was busy, and the flower turned out to be better than I had imagined! They speak both Mandarin and English, which was very helpful for a wedding mixed with Chinese and Canadian. Most importantly, Julia really understood what kind of atmosphere we wanted for the ceremony, and she showed great interpersonal skills in negotiating with our marriage commissioner who almost turned our wedding rehearsal into a big show. It was such a great help to have them plan and organize the wedding.
We were so happy with how our day turned out, and we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much Julia and Francis. Our wedding was truly amazing – and you both played a huge role in making our day a success. We were so happy with how everything turned out. We literally didn’t have to worry about anything all day. Thank you so much
We hired Fortune Events for “day of coordination” for our wedding. I loved having a coordinator because I was able to relax 100% on day of that everything was in order. Julia and Francis did an amazing job of asking me about 113 questions (lol) to make sure they knew every single detail for the wedding day. This put me at ease more than I could express to trust that everything I had planned for the past year would flow! I was able to relax and enjoy the wedding knowing that the coordinators were capable and knowledgeable. It was the most amazing feeling in the world to trust that the day of would flow like I hoped…and it did thanks to Julia and Francis and the 113 questions they asked to get it right!
Very organized and helpful! We hired Julia and Francis for day of coordinator and it was great to have someone there to help with the day. They did a great job and would recommend them to any bride that doesn’t want to be stressed on her wedding day.

We cannot say enough about the wonderful service provided to us by Julia and Francis of Fortune Events. They were both very well organized and made us feel confident that all the little details would be taken care of on the big day. They went above and beyond our expectations and took a personal interest in the bride’s well-being and happiness.
The wedding went off without a hitch and we have our wedding planners to thank for this. Not only did Julia and Francis do an excellent job, they made us feel cared for in the process. We felt that they truly shared in our happiness on the day.

Our photographs have been submitted to Real Weddings, so hopefully we will be in the May/June edition!!! Thank you so much for helping put together an unforgettable wedding. Your help was invaluable. I don’t know what we would have done without you. I also would like to pass your name on to a collegue’s friend who is getting married.
I am very pleased to provide a reference for Fortune Events. Julia Wei & Francis Arevalo have assisted me with two events; one was a silent auction fundraiser, the other a private birthday party.
Fortune Events are completely reliable and unflappable. They took initiative when I was too busy to consult, took care of anything I had overlooked, made sure they understood what I wanted and made creative suggestions.
I have no hesitation in recommending Fortune Events for any occasion. They are a talented team with a strong work ethic, and are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Julia Wei and Francis Arevalo are valued volunteers for the Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS). Our organization sends volunteer Canadian surgeons and obstetricians to 8 countries in Africa, teaching health practitioners life-saving skills. To be able to continue and expand our teaching programs in Africa, we are dependent upon help from volunteers to host public events and fundraising galas.
Francis and Julia were instrumental in organizing a fundraiser for CNIS. They also were part of the event team for our annual fundraising gala A Night in
Timbuktu. They work well as a team and it comes as no surprise to us that they are starting their own wedding business. Their youthful energy and enthusiasm is contagious, as they approach any task with a smile. As a team, they are keen, smart and hard working. We wish them good luck on their endeavor and hope they will keep volunteering for us for years to come, even as they run their successful wedding business!
CNIS is indebted and grateful to our skilled and diverse volunteers. It is the contribution by volunteers such as Julia and Francis that fuel the ongoing ability for non-profit organizations like CNIS to keep our momentum and continue developing new life-saving surgical teachings in Africa.
