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!

Calm, Friendly, good communication and Incredibly Professional

We had our wedding recently and September and we’re absolutely BLESSED to work with Courtney. From the first meeting until the big day itself, she was simply fantastic! Cannot overstate that enough.

All the dozens of little things that stack up and become completely overwhelming in planning a wedding Courtney was on the ball with consistently. Still a lot of work but without her I’m not sure how we would have managed it. We would recommend La Luz and Courtney to absolutely everyone. We can confidently say that hiring her as our wedding planner is up there as one of the best decisions we have ever made. Thank you again for every thing Courtney!
