Best Money We Spent

Oh my, I’m not even sure where to begin. To say Courtney and Shelby made our craziest dreams come true is both hyperbole, and accurate. My wife and I approached La Luz with a wedding weekend — a luxury, multi-day event with many twists and turns for our guests. We got to treat everyone with many surprises at the Four Seasons in Santa Fe, all brought to life by La Luz — from salsa and margarita icebreaker competitions, to friend swap events, to a reception twist where everyone had to look under their seat; Courtney and Shelby brought all of it to life. But the biggest surprise for us was how close of friends they became. Working with them was like working with your best, most organized, prompt, and ‘we’ll make it happen’ friends. They helped us through every detail, and crisis (like the wedding dress getting stained 5 days before the big day!) I can’t praise this group enough, and am ready to have them plan more than just our wedding!

Amazing service

La Luz made our day completely stress free - Courtney knew the answer to every question and kept all the little details together so that we wouldn't have to. I could not recommend them more for your special day. Courtney also handled all of our vendors and worked out problems with them that we didn't even have to hear about. 10/10 service, professionalism and above all, very fun and kind to work with!

La luz made it happen

We couldn’t be happier with choosing Courtney and team as our wedding planner for our May wedding at Bishops Lodge. We had an immediate connection when we first spoke on the phone and felt she was laid back with a good sense of humor but able to stay organized and get business done at the same time. This was totally her vibe throughout the planning process. I often told her she was like a warm safety blanket - she always had an answer to my trivial questions and didn’t hesitate to advocate on our behalf at every turn. I’d pick her team again every time! On the day of, she was cool calm and collected and made sure we had bites and drinks and were able to focus on us. Our families loved her - best wedding planning decision we made!
