Having the Lasting Impressions by Design team by my side on our wedding day was one of the best we could ever make! We hired the LIBD team for their rehearsal dinner and wedding day coordination services, but they did so much more!Sent on 11/10/2019
I began the wedding planning process by myself and booked the majority of my vendors but began to get overwhelmed due to my working hours increasing. I found myself having not having enough time to dedicate to wedding planning. This is when I decided to reach out to look into booking either a wedding planner or coordinator. Immediately after speaking with Joanne, I knew Lasting Impressions by Design was the way to go! In our initial meeting, she asked the right types of questions and took the time to understand our needs. We met with about five potential vendors and almost each one of them tried to “upsell” me on a higher priced package. Joanne reassured me that I was on the right track with my planning and all I needed was day-of coordination services.
Although I only purchased the day-of coordination services, her package included unlimited consultations via phone or email, so it was great to have a professional’s opinion on decisions which you are unsure of. In our final meeting and venue walkthrough, she pointed out last-minute items which I would have never even thought of and KILLED IT during the actual wedding day with Jade and Dawn by her side! I never had to worry about a thing! The team eased all of our anxieties, as we unfortunately had some weather issues, but because of them it turned out to be a great day with all smiles.
Thank you so much to the LIBD team! We will definitely be referring them to any couples we know who will be getting married in the future.

Lasting Impressions MADE my Wedding Dreams Come True!
I could not have had my wedding without Lasting Impressions by Design, more specifically without Joanne and Katie. As dramatic as that may sound, I never understood just how important a day of coordinator was until we booked with LIBD. Every month leading up to my wedding day, I received emails keeping me on track for my wedding and reminding me of even the smallest details that I might forget! I sent every contract to LIBD to ensure that any breaches of contracts (I'll revisit that) could be taken care of appropriately. When the days were getting close to the wedding, I met with Joanne and Katie to discuss every detail down to the 10 minutes my groom and I would have alone time in the bridal suite after our ceremony. (A necessity by the way!) Joanne and Katie even helped me with some last minute rental items for small details at my wedding that I wanted but had a hard time finding on my own. Come the day of the rehearsal and they were able to lead my wild and crazy wedding party the right way and just as I imagined my wedding to be. Finally, on the day of the wedding, I didn't have to lift a finger. Joanne and Katie teamed up and took care of every detail for me, set up my signage and decor that I brought from home. These ladies made sure that my groom and I never had to stand in line at the bar and had a drink in hand at all times. They reminded me to breathe, kept me on track, and took care of our gifts and cleaning up the items we brought from home and loaded our cars. The photobooth at my wedding showed up over 2 hours late and Joanne and Katie made sure that we received a full refund without me having to say a word to the photobooth company. We have already recommended to a couple friends about hiring a wedding coordinator because of what a pleasant experience we had, we also will be sure to recommend LIBD to any local friends and family members of ours getting married! Thank you Joanne and Katie for every big and little feat you did for Frank and I. We cannot thank you enough!Sent on 07/17/2019

What can I say about Lasting Impressions by Design?? I know…IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I MADE HIRING THEM!!! I love them. I want to be their BFF.Sent on 04/25/2019
I was uncertain about hiring a day of coordinator because I really didn’t want to spend the money and I absolutely wanted to plan my own wedding…. I have dreams about being a wedding coordinator/party planner someday. But, after thinking about all the logistics for the day of and how busy I would be as the bride, I thought again and decided to look into it. As luck would have it, I had an email from LIBD that came at the right time from one of the wedding shows. My mother and I met with Joanne and knew I was going to hire her within the first 10 minutes. She was fantastic.
Let me tell you, it is worth every cent. She started the day we hired her and was available to answer any of my questions. She sent monthly check-ins to keep me on track. I’m a fairly organized person and was pretty on my game with planning my wedding, but inevitably I met some bumps in the road with a few things. Joanne took the time to review things with me and offered recommendations. She even reached out to a few people for me. I felt this was outside of the scope of the day of coordinator since it was months prior to the wedding, but she did it without hesitation and not once did I feel like I could not reach out to her. Above and beyond in my opinion.
In regard to the weeks leading up to the wedding and the day of…Fantastic, just fantastic. She kept me calm about the weather, sent me updates, communicated with people for me, sympathized with me, let me have a few bridezilla moments. The day of, she and Katie took all the items I had and set them up for me and everything looked amazing, beyond what I had envisioned. Every time I would say, “What about…”, the response before I could even finish was, “Already taken care of” or “We have it here…”, etc. I felt like they were reading my mind. The day went off without a hitch. If I went near the bar or to get my own drink, one of them was right there asking why I was getting my own drink or why I wasn’t letting them take care of something for me. At the end of the night, they slowly started gathering things up and putting them away, without anyone even noticing. After I left, my parents said that Joanne and Katie had most of the items packed away and there was minimal to take care of after the fact because they had already done it all! They were like mind reading ninjas.
If you’re thinking about hiring a planner or a day of coordinator, you can’t go wrong with Lasting Impressions by Design. What are you waiting for?? Do it! I can’t express how grateful I am for their assistance and hard work they put in for my wedding day. I’m happy to be married to the love of my life, but I’m sad that I don’t get to interact with them on a regular basis any longer. Like I said, BFFs!!
