We used Lovebirds Events for our wedding last month and words cannot express how wonderful they were. It was one of the best decisions I made to choose Kate Franzen and her team. I cannot say enough great things about Kate-- she is absolutely amazing! No matter what issue I had or decision I was making, Kate was always there to help when I needed her. She responded to my calls or emails almost immediately, and was always helpful and honest. Every meeting, phone call, or even email with her made me feel so much less stressed and calmer. She took time and effort to understand my vision so I knew that I was able to let go and trust her. She also has impeccable taste and such a great personality. Everyone who worked with her on our wedding was so impressed with her ability to get it all done with a smile. Her communication and organization skills are unparalleled, and she was able to get everyone involved in our wedding, including vendors and family members, on the same page. She ensured that every detail, even those I hadn’t thought of, was planned and perfect. Kate and Emily worked behind the scenes on our wedding day to ensure that every aspect of our wedding was flawless, smooth, and everything we dreamed of. I wholeheartedly recommend Lovebirds Events to anyone planning a wedding.

Best Wedding Planner in Richmond, VA

My husband and I got engaged in January 2019 and immediately felt overwhelmed by everything that was happening. Living in DC and being from Richmond made it difficult to even think about starting the wedding planning process. Luckily, I have a flexible schedule so I was able to scoot down to Richmond to find a venue and church that coordinated on the same day. After that was decided, I distinctly remember thinking “now what.” We decided that the best place to start was with a wedding planner. After speaking with friends and family, the name that kept being mentioned was “Glint Events.” My mother and I were able to do an in-person meeting with them and immediately felt relieved. The wave of support had washed over us and we were going to have the best wedding experience. Kate and Anna were our main sources of contact and they helped us with everything, especially when it came down to the finer details. They have been helping people with events for some time and we trusted them with their recommendations and in the end it paid off. They helped coordinate all of our vendors with each other and helped us stay on track. The big day came in November, and everything was taken care of and planned. My husband and I felt so relaxed and had so much fun with each other and our guests. The weeks after our wedding, our guests kept saying how much fun everything was, and my response to them was it could not have been done without our planner! Thank you Glint Events for the best experience of our lives.

Snap Event Co - Awesome Part of Glint Events!

So we ended up working with Snap Event Co - a smaller function of the broader Glint Events team, since we didn't need full planning and had a smaller budget. But the service and planning was no less amazing for it! We ultimately worked with Anna, who took all of the vendor and event management off my plate in the month leading up to the wedding, and handled our little socially-distanced event flawlessly. They really hold true to what they promised us from the beginning: wanting us to be guests at our own wedding. I was never hounded by questions or made to stress over little details. Anna had it covered, and was both on top of planning but also behind the scenes in a way that made the event feel much more intimate and easy. I cannot recommend their team enough, whether you use their full-service Glint Events, or need something simpler from Snap Event Co. We are so happy we did!

I worked with Kate on October 22 this past year, and she did an amazing job and keeping everything flowing with the wedding of Ali and Ben. She kept all of the details in line for the reception and the day flowed perfectly. I would recommend Kate to anyone looking for a day of wedding coordinator.
