So happy with our decision to hire Celebrations!

Hiring Celebrations was the best decision we made for our wedding. Sharon and Lorin were professional, organized, fun, easy to work with, and communicative. They "got" my vision for the wedding day and ensured it came to life. I was so impressed by their organization and efficiency, especially on the wedding day. Not having to stress or worry about anything on that day was priceless. The vendors Sharon & Lorin recommended were top-notch. And it felt great to know that they were taking care of communicating with them, organizing the details of the different vendors' schedules & duties, etc. My husband and I initially weren't sure whether we needed full-service planning, but looking back, our wedding would not have been such a magical and stress-free day without Celebrations. We can't recommend them highly enough!

Hire Celebrations LLC immediately after getting engaged!

Hire Lorin for your wedding, that’s it that’s the review.

Seriously, we don’t know how people have weddings without Lorin’s help. During planning, problems were only revealed once solutions were in hand, family drama was quelled before it could get out of control and personal requests were implemented with care and professionalism. On the day, we were confident that we had the best vendor team in place and had peace of mind that everything was being taken care of. We cannot thank Lorin and Sharon enough for helping us have the best wedding we could imagine. They are the team you need for your big day and they should be the first people you hire after you get engaged!

A Picture-Perfect Wedding... 2.5 Years in the Making!

How do I even begin to explain how much Lorin and Celebrations saved us at every step of the way. I originally hired Lorin summer of 2019 for a long (and later longer) engagement for our wedding January 2021. My wife and I were currently living in California, but planned a wedding outside of Baltimore, so we knew we needed a planner to help coordinate all the details. We connected with Lorin immediately; she's funny, warm, and responsive. Everything we wanted she made happen and every idea we had she could find us multiple quality vendors to execute it. She was very consceientous about the budge and did her best to keep us on track, only going over budget when we cleared it. Although we had a long engagement we never once felt like we weren't one of her priorities, no matter how far away the wedding was.

Working with Lorin was so great we ended up also asking her to do our rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch, which made the wedding a glamorous three day affair. Lorin helped every step of the way and I find myself now wishing I could rely on her for my day to day planning haha.

And thanks to Covid the wedding became much farther away! While originally slated to marry in Jan 2021, Covid made that impossible. Lorin talked us through postponing Aug 2020, and while we were all heartbroken, Lorin and Celebrations made it so so easy. Her relationship with the vendors meant we could move our date a year in the future (Jan 2022) without losing a single payment or incurring any fees. While I strongly hope no one else will have to reschedule their wedding like we did, I can say with absolute certainty Lorin is absolutely the planner you want to have your back when sh*t hits the fan.

Although we lived outside of the Baltimore area, Lorin was always available to speak on the phone, over email, or meet with us when in town, or local friends and family on our behalf. I had no idea a wedding (during Covid no less) could be so painless. Additionally when we hit the last couple weeks before our event, and covid diagnoses made the future seem dim, Lorin was the greatest cheerleader. After we spoke with her, no matter how grim things looked, I never worried about if we could pull this off as long as Lorin was around. Thankfully all recovered in time for the wedding that was literally perfect. It was so stressfree and easy with Lorin and Sharon there on the day. At the end of the night when they said goodbye, I genuinely felt sad they wouldn't be a part of our life. For 2.5 years Lorin was a constant, calming, and competent teammate when planning this wedding, and we were so sad to see her go.

Literally Celebrations is worth any amount. A planner is a must have for a wedding (esp in Covid times!) and we were so so lucky to have found Lorin and been able to rely on her. I can't imagine a better person for the job. Thanks again Lorin!!

Sharon B. from Celebrations, LLC is an absolute dream to work with! From the initial contact, through the planning process, the wedding itself, and even the follow-up after the event ... Sharon acted in a professional, helpful, and fast-acting manner. Smiles were on every guests face throughout the event and I'm sure that's because Sharon brought the bride's vision to reality. I can't wait to work with her, again! I highly recommend her as not only your event planner but also as a friendly vendor to partner with on your next event!
