I had the BEST experience working with Lauren James Events. From the very first day working with them to now, two weeks after the wedding, they have been amazing! I personally was very overwhelmed by the idea of the wedding planning process, but thanks to Lauren and Jamie, it could not have been a more enjoyable or stress free experience. Their attention to detail, their responsiveness, their network of vendors and contacts are incredible. The months leading up to the wedding were very organized and manageable due to their structured and reasonable approach. The day of our wedding was just perfect and I did not have a worry in the world the entire day! Their execution was flawless – not to mention, they were a joy to work with throughout. Lauren and Jamie responded to my millions of emails no matter what silly questions I had, attended all of our vendor meetings, and provided invaluable perspective and experience to each aspect of the planning process. They completely exceed our expectations. Both my husband and I just loved working with them, and will certainly miss our emails and calls with them ? If you are considering a planner, I highly recommend reaching out to Lauren James Events. They tailored a package for us based on our needs and what we felt we could handle on our own vs. what we really needed help accomplishing (which was almost everything!) I will certainly be reaching out to them for future events!!Sent on 11/07/2017

Working with Jamie over the past year and a half has been absolutely amazing. Jamie is amazing at what she does and she will not disappoint. From the moment I sent her an initial e-mail all the way through our wedding ceremony and reception last Saturday, Jamie was organized, thorough, professional, warm, and VERY good at her job. She was always accessible, especially when we hit little snags throughout the planning process. In all honesty, our wedding would not have been what it was (which is exactly what we wanted) without her and Lauren James Events! I cannot recommend Lauren James Events highly enough!Sent on 10/30/2018

First of all, understand that I am incredibly picky with (sometimes) impossibly high standards. I rarely feel compelled to write reviews because most times I am left disappointed in some way with contractors and vendors.Sent on 10/04/2018
Not so with Lauren James Events.
My daughter first learned of LJ Events from a friend of hers who married a few years back - a wedding that was featured in Bride’s. So when my daughter became engaged, she consulted with this friend about vendors. Jamie from LJ Events was at the very top of the list.
This particular wedding was difficult to plan because I am located in CA, the bride was in NYC and the wedding was in Philly. Because of this, there were so many things that popped up that I did not anticipate in the months leading up to the wedding, but Jamie did. And that made what could have been a very stressful time for me much less so.
Details are what make a wedding weekend the most memorable and Jamie has the details down to a science. But what stood out the most was Jamie’s willingness to go WAY above and beyond what was required. From hunting down a lost wedding certificate and replacing it to hauling a bunch of last-minute purchases to the hotel – and when I say a bunch, I mean completely filling up her SUV – to never, ever being thrown off her game and being a constant calming presence when hurricanes were threatening (literally) and venues decided to rip up floors right before the wedding. She is what kept me sane.
Bottom line, Jamie and LJ events are hands-down the best wedding planners and I would not hesitate to recommend them or speak to anyone about their services. You not only will not be disappointed but completely blown away. Use them.
