We used Lori Hemphill to help us plan my daughter's wedding. She was filled with great ideas, lots of energy and fun, and thought of many details that I would have overlooked. I would never do a wedding without her. The planning was superb but even better was her dedication to us the week and day of the wedding! I was able to enjoy the wedding as much as my daughter and knew that she had it under control and kept everything running smoothly. I would not have changed a thing!! I did not find her fees expensive, and in my opinion, she was worth every penny and then some! Great Job Lori!!!
I do not know how many brides can say their wedding day was the most care-free and enjoyable days of their lives, but I certainly can - all thanks to Lori and her fantastic team. My family and I agree that Lori was the best investment we made in the entire wedding. Based on my experience my number one piece of advice to any bride would be to hire a coordinator; and if you are getting married in Central PA, you better make it Lori!
Lori was there for us from the beginning. She offers a variety of packages, and I chose one that included coordination and assistance with the planning process. I did the picking, and she helped guide me to keep me on track and make recommendations and suggestions. She kept site visits running smoothly and joined me for a few of the vendor visits as well. When the craziness of the week before the wedding began to set in, she took the helm, handling last-minute vendor coordination and putting together a phenomenal schedule for everyone.
From start to finish, I never had to worry about a thing on my wedding day! Lori took care of making sure the reception was set up and perfectly decorated, while her assistant joined us for hair, make-up, and getting dressed. The assistant even had a coloring book on hand to keep my very rambunctious flower girl entertained.
Lori kept the event (which we were told by MANY friends and family was the best they'd ever been to... thanks in large part to Lori) running very smoothly. They went above and beyond, even helping to pat me down with some small towels when I got sweaty on the dance floor.
A testament to how great Lori was: My sister said that the FIRST thing she will do when she is engaged (she isn't even dating at this point...) will be to call Lori.
We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...Lori! She is a "must have" for any bride. I hired Lori for not only the day of coordinating...but the whole planning process. She attended all my vendor meetings with me such as the florist, invitation designer, reception hall, cake decorater, etc. She has years of experience in interior design and the wedding industry, so she brings a level of expertise that not many people can offer. Planning a wedding can cause a bride to go on an emotional roller coaster. Lori was always a "phone call" away to calm me down and put everything back into perspective..or to celebrate good news! On the day of the wedding she had a couple very sweet assistants working with her to make sure everything went smoothly. I don't know what I would have done without Lori's help during the planning process & the day of the wedding. Our wedding turned out to be absolutely stunning and I didn't have to worry about a thing!
Thank you Lori for everything...you are an angel! XXXOOO
We cannot say enough about Lori. She was extremely helpful throughout our planning process. The day of the wedding ran smoothly because she was in charge. She thought of everything. She even had 2 assistants and an intern to help us on our special day.
She is an awesome planner. We live in NY and had our wedding in Lancaster, so things got a little hectic. We wouldn't have been able to have the most amazing weekend wedding of our dreams in Lancaster if it wasn't for her.
