5/5 Isn't Enough!

What to say! She's amazing! 5 stars isn't enough stars!

The short: Lori is a well organized, on schedule and knowledgeable wedding planner who absolutely makes your day special!

The long: Lori is absolutely amazing. My partner and I got married in the mountains of NC and hired Lori for partial planning. From our first introduction Lori was on time, on task and celebratory of our relationship and special day!
Over the months leading to the wedding we had check ins, follow ups and tasks in which Lori helped keep us on track. Lori utilized a special planning program to keep us on our timetable (which was much needed!) in a fun, friendly way that didn't add ANY stress! There's always "the planner" in the couple and Lori knows how to work with both dynamics to ensure things are set and that you don't have to worry! Coming to the day of the wedding, Lori was prompt, prepared (with her fanny pack of tools, extras) and ready for any last minute things needed. She was emotional support for family, organizer for vendors, last minute checker of design and setup and all around "that bad-ss lady" that we could defer to for anything!

I HIGHLY recommend a planner for anyone who is getting married and I TRIPLE recommend Lori. Her experience, preparation and overall amazing personality made planning our wedding a breeze and not something to severely stress over!

Definitely recommend!!

Hiring Lori for our special day was 1000% worth it. We did the full service planning package and felt at ease throughout the entire process. We followed the timeline she sets to keep us and our budget on track. Her connections and knowledge about other vendors contributed to a perfect wedding. She was always patient and available for whatever concerns we had and you can really see how much she cares to bring your vision to life. Always appreciated her insight into any decision we were on the fence about. Our bridal party raved about how awesome she was! She was an absolute beast on the day of the wedding and we can’t thank her enough.

Very responsive and helpful

Lori and her team provided excellent day of coordination service for us. They were on time, organized and efficient. I had several meetings with a Lori before the wedding and felt she really understood what I wanted.

Owner & Lead Planner

Lori's love for events started as a young child. While in college at Western Carolina, she was hired to be the event planner for the university. After college, she traveled around the North Carolina Mountains working at different wedding venues and resorts until she opened Imagine This Curated Events. Lori loves bringing inspirations to fruition and putting a smile on her clients' faces.

Lead Planner/ Coordinator

Hi there!

I’m Kendall, I am wife and first time mama to sweet girl name Charleigh! The first thing you should know about me is that I am total sucker for all “Love Stories”, it’s actually what got me started in this business. My career started in 2017 as event assistant at a multi-million dollar wedding venue. I also completed an internship with a local wedding planning company. My absolute favorite part about planning weddings is getting to meet so many incredible people from all walks of life and having the opportunity to build relationships that last a lifetime. When I am not planning or working at a wedding, I am traveling and creating a lot of sweet memories with my family! I can’t wait to meet you!
