Best Wedding Ever!
I have to admit I was a little reluctant to hire a planner for my daughter’s wedding, but it took one appointment with them to go all in! I quickly realized that I was in way over my head especially since my daughter, Jess, was living in Virginia and her fiance, Alex, was in Alabama. I live about an hour away from Louisville so it really made sense. Not only that, but they already knew and had connections with the great vendors in Louisville. Melissa would set up appointments with several vendors on the weekends that Jess and Alex would be home and go with them.
Melissa and Lorrie did all the “grunt” work and we were able to enjoy choosing flowers, venues, food, and all the other fun details. These ladies are ultra-organized with a wedding day schedule that was down to 5 minute intervals at some points. Because they are such experienced professionals, they thought of things that wouldn’t have crossed my mind.
Melissa and Lorrie have worked in all kinds of venues and with all kinds of family situations. They are calming and supportive. They understood what Jess wanted for her wedding and they made that dream come true. They also understood that I wanted Jess’s wedding day to be flawless and beautiful. Melissa and Lorrie made it magnificent and effortless for us. We were able to enjoy and to be very present every minute that day.
I just can’t say enough positive things about these excellent ladies! They don’t just organize your wedding; they become friends, counselors, referees, and managers. Having them was the best decision in the entire wedding planning process!

When I started planning our wedding, I quickly became overwhelmed with all the options that are available for every part of a wedding. I was also about to start a new job in a different state than we planned to get married (with my husband living in a third state). I was hesitant to spend money on a wedding planner. But I thought I would at least talk with some to see what I thought anyway. Enter two wonderful women: Lorrie and Melissa. They were immediately kind, warm, welcoming, and obviously organized and knew what they were doing. They were interested in me and my husband, what we wanted, how we wanted it, and how they could help us get those things! When they told me their ultimate goal for a wedding is that the couple wouldn't know if something went wrong until AFTER the wedding, I was sold!Sent on 11/25/2019
Throughout the 15-month engagement, we met several times when we would visit Kentucky and Melissa made time for phone calls often to stay in touch and updated. Each time, Melissa would have a list of things we needed to follow-up on, things we needed to start thinking about, and some longer-term items to just "be aware of." This helped us immensely. She worked with us on a budget, never suggesting we spend more! She was able to provide suggested vendors, but never once pushed us to hire anyone specifically. The honesty and openness we received was such a sigh of relief for us because we feared that from other wedding planners with whom we met.
There were MANY things that I would not have ever thought about (or would have considered after it was too late). She attended vendor meetings with us (or for us when we couldn't make it). She made a detailed schedule of the wedding weekend that had five-minute increments at some points (incredible to my Type A personality, but not scary to others because you know Lorrie and Melissa have it covered for you!). She did all the things we weren't looking forward to for our wedding planning so we could focus on the fun stuff. She answered the hundreds of questions I had throughout the planning. She was available at all hours by text, phone, and email! It was phenomenal!
Finally, the wedding weekend arrived. And, just when I thought they couldn't get any better, Lorrie and Melissa helped us through the rehearsal step-by-step, stepping in when there were questions, discrepancies, or issues. The next morning (wedding day), Lorrie and Melissa were at the venue decorating, arranging, double-checking things, and setting up for our fabulous day! Melissa came to see us while we were getting ready to check in on me and how I was doing. She is the sweetest!
Our wedding went off without a hitch (that I noticed). Lorrie and Melissa handled EVERYTHING. These women are sincerely true experts in their fields. They are wonderful at their job, but they are also seriously wonderful people. We feel so fortunate to have met Lorrie and Melissa and to have been able to work with them and get to know them as people.
Working with Lorrie and Melissa was THE best decision we made in the wedding planning process! Meet with them and see for yourself! If nothing else, you will meet two of the sweetest ladies in Kentucky!

Everything went so smooth thanks to their amazing work!
Lorrie was our main point of contact throughout the whole process, we live in another country so there was a lot of Facetime calls and emails throughout the process, even with a 12 hour time difference! Lorrie was on top of absolutely everything and was willing to go the extra mile to help make the perfect day for Andrew and I. She was super hands-on with my family since I wasn't physically there and easily won them over! She even stepped in to save the day on a chaotic experience with our rehearsal dinner plans (which was completely out of her scope) and it ended up being even better than planned! Melanie helped a lot on the day as well and was so energetic and involved with the whole experience. I would highly recommend Lorrie & Mel if you're looking for a great events team! Thank you so much Lorrie for everything :)Sent on 01/15/2020
