Could Not Have Done it Without Lisa Havard!
Lisa was our wedding planner for my daughter's beautiful wedding a week ago. I cannot thank her enough for her assistance, encouragement, and creativity! We worked with Lisa for almost 18 months, from shortly after the engagement until the big event. Because of her experience, she was able to make recommendations to us for all of the big and small decisions. Lisa suggested several vendors in each category and helped us make our decisions. Because of Lisa, we were able to assemble a fantastic team. We used Shadow Creek for the venue, Spilled Milk Caterers, The Rosy Posy florists, DJ Nelson Vargas/Xtreme Solutions, Sam Stroud Photography, Lansdowne Resort for the guests and Road Yachts for transportation. Also very important were the relationships she had with all the vendors. It was quite evident that she was well respected by all of them. Throughout the process she kept us on track to make sure we were making progress on all the little things that needed to be done (save the dates, invitations, escort cards, etc). I learned first hand how stressful wedding planning could be, but I was so confident in Lisa's guidance that I never lost a minute of sleep worrying about anything. On the wedding day she was energized and made sure everything was ready and things stayed on track. I lost track of time during the reception, but Lisa was right there coordinating the introductions, cake cutting, breaking out the flip flops, distributing the glow necklaces and then the sparkler send-off! We received many many complements from the wedding guests. I am so grateful for Lisa's assistance in making my daughter and son-in-law's wedding so special and memorable. I have one more daughter and when the time comes, I will definitely want Lisa to handle the planning. I strongly recommend Lisa Havard to coordinate your wedding!Sent on 11/04/2019

BEST money I spent!
I was fortunate enough to find Lisa available to help with a fall wedding just two months before the big day. She was simply the BEST!!! I originally thought I'd be able to manage everything as it was supposed to be a small, in-town wedding, but as we got closer to the date and I realized there was A LOT of day coordination I wasn't going to be able to manage alone, I started freaking out. From my first meeting with Lisa, I knew I was in capable hands. She expertly guided me through everything and made sure no detail was overlooked -- between coordinating a quick 45 minute set-up for the reception to making sure the buses made it to the winery on time -- everything went off without a hitch. She even connected me with a fantastic florist last minute who was able to stay within my desired budget. Without a doubt, Lisa was the BEST money I spent for the wedding. I'm just sorry I didn't connect with her sooner!Sent on 10/30/2019
