Meet the Owner/Senior Event Planner Sherry-Lyn - "I've always had a passion for event planning and the experience I've gained through working for hotels and conference centers has been wonderful!! Before branching out on my own, I worked for the Brookstreet Hotel & Resort as their resident wedding planner since 2010 averaging 60 weddings each year. The feeling I get simply by being a part of someone’s special day is truly heartwarming.
Sherry-Lyn went above and beyond to make our special day truly perfect. From day one she was very professional, approachable, always easy to reach, quick to reply, and took care of so many things that I'm not sure how we would of done it without her. When it comes to wedding planning, you think of the big things when creating your checklist - venue, caterer, music, officiant, decor, rentals, etc. - but often the many MANY small things are what you don't quite consider in the big picture, and let me tell you those sure do add up over the course of planning. From big to small things, Sherry-Lyn had it covered and we are so grateful for that and for her! From emails to phone calls, planning to opinions, I always knew I could reach out to her at anytime - and just knowing that is a relief in itself from the bride's perspective. She takes the time to pay attention to the small details and do everything she can to make your day the fairy tale you've hoped it to be.
Whether you have Sherry-Lyn for the entire planning process or even just the day of, she will make a world of a difference, as I know she did for us. We can not thank her enough for all of her hard work for our special day to help create what truly was the best day ever, & I would recommend her without a doubt to anyone planning an event in their future!
❤️ ❤️ Thanks Sherry-Lyn !
A HUGE shout out to Sherry-Lyn. I don’t know how I would have managed without her on our big day. We had enough other things go wrong but I promise you hiring Sherry wasn’t one of them. My ceremony and venue were decorated exactly as I imagined. I basically told her roughly what I wanted but that I trusted her judgement. WOW. She made sure my partner and I didn’t see each other until I walked down the aisle. It was so beautiful. In my pictures you can see her trying to hide behind me while holding my veil that we didn’t expect to catch on the ground all the way down! She told me she had me and I knew she did. If you are debating if a day of wedding planner is worth the money......Absolutely Sherry is worth every single penny! Thank you Sherry again for everything!!!!!!!! Xoxo Lindsay & Megan
We had our wedding in Calabogie in late 2017 and Sherry-Lyn was always there when we needed her. From the initial site visit, to contract review, and a huge asset on the day of, we couldn't have done it without her. On our wedding day we had chairs without covers and sashes and Sherry-Lyn jumped right in and finished the chairs for us. She was always available for questions and she made our experience memorable. She made sure our day was perfect, and it was!! We highly recommend SL Events. ~ The Roy's
Sherry-Lyn helped us plan our wedding @ the Brookstreet Hotel, in September 2016, and our day was perfect. It was just the way we wanted it. Sherry-Lyn is amazing, and her attention to detail is outstanding. She is a great organizer, and replies very promptly. She is super-efficient, very easy to get along with, gets things done, and fits into the situation. Everyone that was involved with our wedding commented on how lovely Sherry-Lyn was. I couldn’t recommend Sherry-Lyn high enough, as a wedding planner. She goes the extra mile to make your day so special. Thanks so much Sherry-Lyn, for everything, and we can honestly say that we have gained a friend. Gary xo
We can’t say enough about Sherry-Lyn. The service she provided, the level of professionalism, the attention to detail and so much more. She was always available when we had questions and we never felt stressed because we knew we could count on her for anything. The weather didn’t cooperate for our outdoor ceremony but we went ahead as planned and Sherry-Lyn ensured everyone was looked after. Coordinating the guests and keeping in constant communication with the Officiant was very helpful so we could concentrate on getting ready and enjoying our day. What an asset to have on our special day. Thank you so much Sherry-Lyn!!

Where to begin… Sherry-Lyn has this way of making you feel at ease. She knows what she’s doing and we definitely made a lifelong friend. The day of details were all taken care of by Sherry-Lyn and we couldn’t be happier. Our intimate ceremony took place in our backyard surrounded by our closest friends and family, it was beautful and just what we wanted. Thank you for making our day so special. We truly appreciate all that you’ve done for us.

A heartfelt and sincere thanks to Sherry-Lyn Coulas and her amazing staff for helping put on a cherished and never-to-be forgotten wedding for me and my wonderful wife in April 2016. Anyone should feel lucky to have Sherry-Lyn, whose superb coordination oversaw our multi-layered, complex and inter-cultural wedding, ensuring it went off without a hitch. Our wedding guests also singled out the professional and compassionate service of Brookstreet’s doormen and other staff, who made extra effort to ensure that our elderly wedding invitees were well accommodated or received and special attention when necessary. Sherry-Lyn was always there to answer questions with several concerns & anxieties that needed reassuring - our wedding planning period was extremely short (just 3 months) and we needed answers quickly. - fluidly organizing a demanding full-day marriage event (early morning to late late night) without a single glitch, - allowing us more external vending options than is normally allowed by wedding venues, including: (a) penalty free external design and decor vending options, and, (b) high quality external catering options. Here we felt like we asked for and got only what we needed - nothing more, nothing less. Attention to detail & the Extra Mile: We were pleasantly surprised by Sherry-Lyn's willingness to go the extra mile on accommodating sudden unforeseen events on the wedding day. In our case, we discovered we needed an extra room for the bride to prepare during our morning ceremony while later in the day Sherry-Lyn was happy to help us when she learnt our flash mob needed extra space to rehearse in (she went hunting for a spare room). That kind of attention to detail gave us peace of mind and so in the end we were very happy that we picked Brookstreet for our wedding location and so thankful to have Sherry-Lyn as our wedding planner.
