Wedding Planner turned great friend
There should be more than 5 stars for this review because Lisa and her team deserve all of them! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Lisa planning our wedding for 2 years. She has been with me since the beginning! At one point I told her I was very sad as the wedding got closer as I received the multiple warnings of “the day goes by in a blink, watch out!” But I said I wasn’t sad that the wedding would be over, but more sad I wouldn’t see her as much, spend time together as we had done for the past 2 years. Lisa is the type of person you hire as a wedding planner, but becomes your very good friend by the end of the process. But luckily I don’t live too far from the office!Sent on 06/24/2019
To give specifics, we hired Lisa as part of her Supreme Package wedding planning to help with everything from meetings with vendors, to invitation design and wording. Best decision of our whole wedding.
Lisa was there every step of the way. It was through her website I found what ultimately ended up becoming our wedding venue. But armed with a list of other venues I wanted to see, she set up venue sightings spreading over the next couple of weeks, making sure to be with us at each one. Her connections and knowledge in this industry is crucial and incredible to any bride. Her vendors are wonderful, professional, and the best in their field of work. The Supreme Package allowed me access to these vendors at great prices with some perks thrown in! Nothing I could have gotten at that price without Lisa and her great relationship with these professionals.
Lisa was there every step of the way in email form as well. Her responsiveness through email, whether it be a question, or a suggestion/idea was almost immediate. I could 100% count on Lisa answering me by the end of the day with any email I sent her. She, in turn, always made sure I was kept in the loop and updated on any vendor communications she had or tasks she completed or needed me to complete. She was always 10 steps ahead of me in everything wedding related! And I absolutely loved it! She is so incredibly knowledgeable and great at her job. I felt so confident our wedding would go off perfectly. And it did!
The amount of compliments I received from my guests telling me how smooth every event of the wedding went was amazing! And it is all because of Lisa and her team. Eric and I had no worries on our wedding day. If the day’s events needed to start at a certain time, they did with the CCBL team. Eric and I did not feel pushed along, or pressured in any way. Lisa’s strategic planning allowed hair and makeup to finish on time, which then allowed first look photos to happen and even extra time for some extra photos! And most importantly, our ceremony had to be on time, since one of our vendors had another wedding afterwards. With Lisa and her team running the show, our processional started as the clock struck 3:30pm!
I cannot say enough about Lisa and the CCBL team. Our wedding would not have been the same without her. Get a wedding planner, specifically Lisa Antonecchia. You will not be disappointed!

An Amazing Wedding Planner
I own the Connecticut Wedding Group in Middletown ,CT. When Samantha and I decided we were going to have our wedding at our home on the 4th of July , the senior wedding planner of my company strongly suggested that we should hire Lisa to be our wedding planner and organizer . Looking back on what was an over the top , incredible , memorable extravaganza it’s easy to realize that Lisa’s expertise was the key factor on pulling it all off so successfully . On our initial meeting Lisa brought her energetic persona into our living room , listened to our vision and quickly filled us with confidence that she was the one that could help us pull it off and have fun the whole way through . Lisa and her team worked tirelessly with an incredible attention to detail that kept us completely organized , ahead of schedule and always on track. She isn't afraid to speak her mind and offer her opinion but at the same time doesn’t take offense if yours differ . She quickly becomes your trusted advisor . When it came to the event coordination Lisa stepped up and took charge of everything and it was a welcome relief to know that our big day was in the hands of a competent professional . She and her team coordinated rehearsal plans , early wedding day morning set up , coordination of all vendors , and supervision throughout the ceremony and reception until after the last guests had left . Her crew was back with her early the next morning organizing our brunch and making sure everything was in place and guests were happy. I cannot praise Lisa and her team enough . They replace stress with fun and sincere excitement making wedding day dreams come true....Sent on 07/15/2019

Best Planner Ever!
Sent on 06/28/2019
I don’t even know how to begin to describe how much our family loves and appreciates Lisa. Our daughter was married on June 22—our second wedding in less than a year! We hired Lisa again without hesitation. Her attention to detail every step of the way was incredible. I told her several times “I don’t know what I would do without you!” In stressful situations, she always calmly reassured me that everything would be fine, and it was! Her response to emails or phone calls was always immediate. Even though we knew she was extremely busy with many other weddings, she made us feel like we were her only clients. She most definitely goes above and beyond. On wedding day, she made sure I didn’t lift a finger. She wanted me to enjoy the day with my daughter and family. Her staff is outstanding, especially Patti who calmly attended to some minor issues before the wedding (which seemed major at the time!) Every vendor that Lisa recommended was fantastic. It was an amazingly beautiful wedding, and our guests had so much fun. Both daughters' weddings were phenomenal and it is because we hired the BEST wedding planner out there. After working with Lisa for over two years, she has become a dear friend, and I will miss her! Do not hesitate to hire Lisa and her team. They are true professionals, and I promise you will NOT be disappointed!
Lisa is PHENOMENAL at what she does. Her professionalism, follow through, and straight up passion for what she does (and that huge smile on her face!) is second to none. Any wedding we work on with her is always a total win. Knowing that Lisa and her team is managing an event not only puts us at ease as caterers, but also allows the bride and groom to relax and truly enjoy their day!!
We Love working with Lisa!! She brings a fantastic energy and professionalism to every event!
Sometimes couples don't realize how important a planner is until it's too late. Lisa has proven time and time again that she really knows how to run an event. I have never met anyone more on top of things than her and thats easy to work with. She'll put your wedding day worries a side and take care of you like you were family.
