2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Hakuna Matata Weddings and Events specializes in day of/month of wedding planning.

What is a month of/day of coordinator?

Starting a month before your wedding:

  • help tie up any loose ends
  • make a to-do list for you if necessary
  • create a manifest and timeline to share with venue and vendors
  • confirm details with your vendors, run your rehearsal
  • be there through your whole wedding day - from delivering breakfast or lunch from panera, publix or wherever you choose, to coordinating the timeline, coordinating vendors, helping your bridal party get down the aisle, making sure your personal items are set up and taken down - and so much more.

We handle things that you don't even think of like - mother of the bride is no where to be found and cake cutting is about to happen, we go and find her and bring her back | Groom spills red wine on his shirt, we remove the stain with our emergency supplies | Boutonniere got broken - we use centerpiece florals to make another one - all these little things can detract from your special day. That is where hiring a day of planner comes into play.

I have the best job in the world - I get to help couples' enjoy and celebrate one of the best days of their lives. While you are basking in your love, let us handle all the details that you worked so hard to plan. We are an investment in the success of your wedding - you spent hours picking the right vendors, choosing just the perfect florals and decor, getting your own special touches to add, on your wedding day, you will be busy getting ready with you gals or guys - no time to check if your cake arrived or to set up any extra items you have. Let us take care of that for you.

Hiring someone with experience is always at the top of my list of importance - so let me tell you a little bit about mine:

I earned an event management degree from the University of Florida. I went on to take classes to become a certified Wedding Coordinator. In order to do so, I worked alongside a variety of vendors and planned several weddings along the way. Now I have been using that knowledge to plan hundreds of events and work with other event vendors in the area. I started my own business in January of 2018. I wanted to be sure I was ready and experience enough in the event industry before starting out on my own.

We offer three packages to help assist you through the planning process: Day-of/Month-of, Professional Backup, and A La Carte options. If you can’t find a package that meets your needs, Hakuna Matata Weddings and Events is happy to create something custom.

    Lizzie is the best!

    Lizzie is the absolute BEST! She was always available and quickly responded to anything I asked. Lizzie has so much knowledge about weddings and guided me through the last minute details I would have surely forgotten. She took our vision for our day and made sure every detail was exactly how we pictured it. With Lizzie in charge of our day, I had no doubt that our day was going to be perfect. We are so grateful we were able to work with her. She made sure we had our best day ever!

    Simply the best!

    Lizzie and her crew are actual super heroes! The day wouldn’t have gone as amazing had they not been there! They’re a pleasure to work with and if you’re getting married, you NEED THEM!
    Everyone at the wedding was raving about them as well and asking for their number for someone they know. They are simply the best!

    Best in the Business

    I thought I could plan my wedding without a planner but after speaking with Lizzie I realized she would be able to help us organize the day better than I ever could. She was so thoughtful, kind, and responsive. I've only had the one wedding but I don't think there's any wedding planner better than her. She took my ideas and made them beautiful. Our day was so special thanks to her and Hakuna Matata, I can't thank them enough.

Top notch planner. Lizzie really knows how to run an event. Our experience with her has been exceptional!

Lizzie is a fantastic Wedding planner! Easily one of the smoothest weddings i've ever shot and i've been to a number of weddings as a photographer for the past 5 years! Was so easy to communicate with and handled every problem or hurdles throughout the event with a cool calm collected manner! definitely an expert and seasoned veteran in her field and would highly recommend her for any event, if you want a stress free and amazing party for you and your guests!

We had an opportunity to work on a wedding with Lizzy of Hakuna Matada Weddings and Events in February 2017. Lizzy was the ultimate professional. She was highly responsive, warm and friendly and easy to work with. Lizzy go out of her way to ensure that we had all the support and assistant we need to do our job to the best of our ability. She is truly a gem and we look forward to working with her again. If you are getting married or having an event, we highly recommend that you contact Lizzy. We promise you will not regret it.
