Where do I even begin with how amazing my experience with Ann-Marie of Daniel Barker House of Design was? Ann-Marie deserves 100 stars for how amazing of a job she does, she truly cares about each and every detail and will do anything to make her brides happy. She worked with me to create my dream wedding, on the budget I had and was realistic with me when I was going a bit wedding crazy.
Ann-Marie went above and beyond any expectation I had, she did such a beautiful job that my guests could not stop raving about how beautiful my wedding decor was. She even threw in a few special surprises that I am still in awe about. To this day (our wedding was in April), I still get messages and comments on photos asking me who did my incredible decor.

We met Ann-Marie and her team at Canada’s Bridal show in January 2016. The first thing I asked her was “can you work with a limited budget?” and she said “absolutely”. She had worked as a designer on two popular TV shows which involved couples having large and small budgets for wedding décor so I trusted she would stick to her word. Judging from pictures we could tell she does really great work and we could tell she would work wonders for our peacock colour theme for our wedding. It was a bit difficult to get flowers in the dark purple we wanted but everything turned out beautiful for our wedding. One thing I really appreciated about Ann-Marie was that she has the ability to picture what your décor will look like in her head and tell you whether something would clash or not. Our head tables and centerpieces were to die for! They were exactly what we were hoping it would look like. I cannot wait to see the hi-def pictures of everything. Overall, Ann-Marie was very responsive and made her best effort to get us what we wanted on our budget. We would highly recommend Daniel Barker House of Design for all of your décor needs.

 Ann-Marie is wonderful and her work the same!

I did a lot of research and met with many vendors before finding Ann-Marie of Daniel Baker House of Design. I knew exactly how I wanted our reception hall and church decorated- I really just needed someone to execute.

When my husband and I met Ann-Marie at the wedding show, we immediately felt energized by her enthusiasm, love for our decor ideas, and promised to wow us. We felt confident that we would be in very good hands if we hired Ann-Marie, but of course, I had to go home and do my research before committing. Naturally, like most brides I was anxious because I understood the importance of a beautiful decor- it totally sets the mood and will be in pictures that we'll keep forever. I also had a very specific vision of how I wanted things and a budget to fit it within.

Ann-Marie promised to meet our budget and execute our design plan as we hoped. A combination of her enthusiasm, timely responses to our emails, an understanding of what we were looking for and her promise to wow us sold us! It was the best decision we could've made.

My husband and I were blown away with how beautiful both venues looked and how everything came together so perfectly. We truly were overwhelmed with joy when we saw Ann Marie's work and our guests still rave about how classy, modern and elegant the decor was. Thank you Ann-Marie for your patience, enthusiasm and of course- excellent design!

 I'd like to start off by saying that I met with several decor vendors before choosing Daniel Barker House of Design, and it was the best decision we made! From the first meeting Ann-Marie was a hit with her fun and bubbly personality, passion for design and decorating, and detail-orientation. I came to her with a clear vision of the vibe, style and colour scheme I wanted and together throughout the year of planning we expanded upon it. She was always prompt with responding to emails and open to meeting anytime we needed to. We was super fun and hilarious to work with and the meetings with her were the most enjoyable - she made the whole process more exciting and less stressful. Ann-Marie was really accommodating with any ideas, requests and changes we had and was always honest with us. We really clicked because of her straight-up nature, and she says it like it is - which is something you won't get from many vendors! When it came to the whole process of planning during the year, she was so refreshing to work and communicate with, and if you want someone who is reliable, passionate, bubbly and straightforward, you've come to the right place.
Now about the actual Wedding Day...when you're in the midst of planning your special day, you always worry about what the final outcome will be, and let me tell you this...when my husband and I walked into our hall before our guests arrived my mouth dropped! The hall looked so amazing that it took my breath away. Ann-Marie was still there and I yelled "Oh My God!!" out loud at my amazement. I can't express adequately in words how beautiful everything looked - from the head table details to the cake table and guest was unbelievable and she totally delivered!!! Our family and friends would not stop talking about how this was the most beautiful wedding they've been to in 30 years, and how gorgeous, romantic, and incomparably classy the decorations looked!! I would 100% recommend Ann-Marie and her company!!!! xoxo

 Ann-Marie is amazing. Her designs are absolutely stunning. She completely understood our vision for our wedding and exceeded our expectations. Her design was by far way more than we could have ever imagined for our wedding day. She goes above and beyond and does not skip out on details just because of the couples budget. She was recommended to us by family and friends who have used her services before, and we will definitely continue to recommend her to others who need her services!

Ann-Marie, Ann-Marie, Ann-Marie! When you told us that you were going to "wow" us - we just had no idea to what level you would exceed our expectations. You truly brought our dream wedding to life. When Leon and I looked at the pictures that you posted - we just couldn't believe that the hall looked THAT good! Our family and friends cannot STOP talking about how our wedding was so classy, so beautiful, so top of the line glamour. Girl, you truly, truly outdid yourself. Anyone who is wondering whether to allow Ann-Marie to style their event - look no more! This woman is the truth! We are your biggest fans and will sing your praises to all who are looking for design services. It was a pleasure to work with you. A million thank yous! , With Love - The Johnsons :)
