Don't think twice about hiring Laura!
Hiring a coordinator was definitely not on the top of our list. But now that our wedding is over, I most definitely could not say that. Months out from our wedding, I decided that there were enough vendors and decorations that I didn’t want to make my family and friends (most of whom were from out of town) work on our wedding. I can’t remember how I found Laura but her good reviews most certainly helped. We originally hired her for two weeks, but as the big day got closer, we were nervous about everything, so we hired her a month out. It is amazing to have someone to go to for all your wedding questions and needs. Everything from décor, vendor tips, schedule – the schedule! We would hire her for that alone – Laura was there (and very responsive!). Then the days leading up the wedding, it was just the BEST to have her there for everything. She basically ran our rehearsal – which none of us knew really what to do – but Laura did! Also, we had some amazing vendors for our wedding, with the exception of one giant, very unprofessional vendor that Laura helped me with leading up to the wedding. Then on the day of the wedding, she dealt with them extraordinarily well, given that they just did what they wanted. Everyone in my family was so impressed with Laura and her assistants the day-of. They were so warm, kind and organized! My dad’s car was in the way and one assistant just moved it for us! I also had soo much décor. They placed everything where I wanted and got it all done under such a tight time frame. I cannot believe Laura and her team! I’m so grateful to them. The day of the wedding gets very crazy, emotional, overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Having someone on top of everything was honestly the most important thing the day-of. I’m sooooo happy Laura was there!Sent on 11/04/2019

Wonderful day-of coordinator
Laura was amazing! When we first set out on our wedding planning research, we wondered about why a day-of coordinator really is such a big deal. And now having been through it all, we can safely say that having a super day-of coordinator is one of the best decisions you’ll make! After months of planning, it is important to feel that you can hand off all your plans to someone you trust, and Laura is that person! She made the days leading up to the wedding and the day of the wedding so stress-free. She gets stuff done. And she does it well. We couldn’t have done it without her, so thanks again Laura!Sent on 11/02/2019

My Fairy Godmother
Laura is a real life fairy godmother! Truly that is all you need to know, and you should hire her now. But just in case you need convincing....Sent on 10/15/2019
Leading up to the wedding she was my lifeline, and helped make me feel completely at ease during the home stretch of planning. On the actual day of our wedding, I had absolutely nothing to worry about - Laura took care of EVERYTHING. She handled all the things I needed, and she handled things I didn't realize were going on until after our wedding. Our day was so perfect that I kept saying "something has to go wrong, it's not supposed to be this perfect." But it was truly a perfect day, and Laura made sure of that.
She is a true professional. The timeline planning alone would've been worth every penny. Our vendors said she was a joy to work with, and everyone was so thankful for her help. Obviously you want your coordinator to be responsive, professional, prompt - Laura is 110% all of these things. But, more importantly, she is someone I was happy to have with me on a very significant day in my life. She is joyful, kind, funny, and warm. She really does LOVE love, and she made me even more excited for my own wedding. She works so incredibly hard with a smile on her face.
(As further evidence of how hard she works - At one point my dad wasn't sure what to do with his phone, so Laura held on to it for part of the day to keep it safe. When she gave him back his phone, she had nearly doubled his steps goal for the day in just a few hours.)
My wedding would not have gone smoothly without Laura. It was the best day ever, and I was able to focus entirely on being happy because I knew I had Laura bringing my dreams to life.
Laura is awesome! She got ish done, kept everyone on task, was super communicative with me before my couple's wedding, and made sure the bride and groom had nothing to stress about day of. Couldn't ask for more in a coordinator!
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
Laura is absolutely amazing! She's been the coordinator for a couple of my brides and I have been thoroughly impressed! She is so organized, friendly, and is so great about making sure everything and everyone is where they need to be. I highly recommend her!
