Call Lindsay; you're in great hands!
The hubs and I renewed our vows Saturday, the 20th, and we've been in the wedding industry for ten years plus, and I thought I knew a lot about what it take to put on an event like this. Nope! You know that phrase "I couldn't have done it without you?" It was true every step of the way with Lindsay. She opened my eyes to details that were brilliant and beautiful. Her suggestions were thoughtful and based on her experience creating warm and welcoming spaces for guests to enjoy themselves and for her couples to sit back and relish in weeks and months of planning. What really made an impression on me was she stayed until all the rentals we're put away and ready to go...even tho we kept saying Lindsay, we'll finish up, you go home....she stayed and made the process seamless.Sent on 04/22/2019

She is amazing at what she does!
Lindsay made our wedding a dream come true!!! She is amazing at what she does. During our wedding planning she was always easy to get ahold of and she was extremely organized. Anything we needed she took care of and assisted us with. On our wedding day she made everything run smoothly. If there were hiccups she handled them without us even knowing. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted. Thank you Lindsay for making our wedding a dream come true! I would recommend her to anybody who wants their dream wedding or event to run smoothly! We are definitely hiring her for my sisters wedding in the future!Sent on 07/07/2019

Magical Wedding Because of Lindsay
Hiring Lindsay (13Thirteen Events) was the best decision we made for our wedding planning. My mom and I kept saying to each other "Seriously...thank god for Lindsay" many times leading up to the big day. My now husband and I had such a busy year with moving and new jobs and just didn't have the time to handle all of the wedding details that were needed. So having Lindsay as our planner made wedding planning efficient, fun, and so much easier. There were a lot of decisions that came up that I had no idea were even things we had to consider! She guided us so well through everything with the perfect amount of explanation.Sent on 11/17/2019
Lindsay completely understood what our goals and intentions were for the wedding vibe and style and she knew how to best make decisions that were aligned to that vision. She kept us focused on what needed to get done by when, which I greatly appreciated! Even when I was slow to reply back to emails, she would follow up and keep us on track. Her timeline and ability to spot details were amazing. She caught several issues with timing and worked them all out with all the vendors to make sure the day ran smoothly. Her timeline for the whole wedding weekend made us feel so organized.
One of the best things she did for me was, she reminded me when some things were not my responsibility to worry about for day-of. That made me feel supported and allowed me to really enjoy the moments day-of rather than scrambling around trying to get things done myself.
I highly recommend going with 13Thirteen Events for your wedding! Lindsay is so nice, enjoyable to be around, and will make your dream wedding day come to life. I am so grateful for her! I was able to be present for my wedding and really enjoy each second.
13Thirteen Events's reply:It was such a pleasure working with you to help plan your wedding. You and Travis are such a sweet couple, and it was truly my pleasure being able to help the two of you. I am so happy to hear I was able to make your wedding day special and allow you to be present. I wish you two a lifetime of love together!
