The best decision I have ever made (aside from saying yes to my husband) was choosing work with Lauren James Events as our wedding planners. I am a very detail oriented person and live for a good to do list but we knew we needed a wedding planner from day one and so it was a priority to seek out the best. LJ Events came highly recommended and exceeded our expectations. From the first day we met both Jamie and Lauren- it was like planning with my best friends- they completely understood our vision for our wedding. I knew we would be a perfect fit. Within hours we had signed our contract and began working with Jamie. We explained what we were looking for, for our wedding and Jamie quickly provided us a list of recommendations for vendors tailored to our taste and budget. She was beyond helpful with setting up appointments, listening to our pro and con lists and assisting us with finding who would be the perfect fit. Jamie's responsiveness (seriously, minutes), professionalism and attention to detail constantly amazed and impressed me. Jamie attended many of our vendor meetings and helped us to make the right decisions- to see what we wanted and needed and to help clarify our vision when it sometimes blurred. As the wedding got closer, Jamie and I would meet to discuss any outstanding items on our fluid to do lists and to just relieve the stress that comes with wedding planning- I would leave these meetings feeling like I had just come from an afternoon with a friend (which she now is) and with all of my to-do's checked off. Not only were LJ Events a key part of our wedding planning, I would be remiss to fail to mention the day of. My husband had been side-planning with Jamie for months to give me gifts each hour of the getting ready day. Jamie handled that so seamlessly on top of making me the calmest, happiest bride there has ever been. From the time Jamie and Lauren arrived I knew I was putting the best day of my life in the most capable hands. I did not worry about anything (and I did not need to)- everything was taken care of and if anything came up, I still do not know about it. We are so lucky to have worked with LJ Events for our wedding and could not recommend them more.Sent on 03/31/2019

Perfect Wedding Planners
This is a hard review for me to write, because there is so much to say about how incredible Jamie and her team were throughout the entire wedding planning process. Where to begin...Sent on 05/11/2019
When you start working with Lauren James they make sure that they understand your vision and your vibe. They take into consideration what you say and feel and also try to accommodate the expectations of your parents and your guests. They can see the big picture, even if you can't.
Jamie and her team are also connected throughout the entire Philadelphia area so they only introduce you to the best vendors to work with and believe me when I say they will assemble an all-star team for you! Our band, our venue, our photographer, our flowers and invitations were all amazing and that is thanks to Jamie coordinating with all of them.
Jamie and her team are also hands on from day 1 of planning, which I appreciated because I had so many questions throughout the year of planning the Wedding. And she answered each of my questions with patience and grace via email, phone and text. Jamie and Lauren James are always there for you and are happy to provided peace of mind constantly.
The Wedding Weekend would not have happened without Jamie and the Lauren James team. They were there throughout Friday and Saturday and even assisted on Sunday. Jamie and her team were there to wrangle family members, set up photo opportunities, hold my bouquet, and much, much more. Not to mention that their attention to detail and enthusiasm made the Weekend special.
I cannot imagine planning my Wedding without Jamie and I cannot imagine my Wedding Weekend going so smoothly without Jamie and her team. Lauren James is incredible and every bride should use their services!

5 stars is not enough stars
Not sure where to begin with Jamie and LJ Events. From the day we met Lauren and Jamie until 2am at the conclusion of our wedding’s after party…and still, now, 5 weeks later…we have been ranting and raving to our family and friends about our wedding planner. More than just the actual planning itself, but the timely, friendly, FUN, and professional way they conduct themselves in the event planning industry. To say that wedding planning would have been survivable WITHOUT Jamie is a blatant lie (and not just because she also served as my wife’s therapist for the last year). Beyond giving us a list of the best vendors, setting up – and going to – those meetings, Jamie led us through the wedding planning process in a way that we can only describe as perfect. On the day of our wedding, everything was seamlessly executed and beyond our wildest dreams. To date, beyond the décor/food/music/atmosphere, our family and friends continue to talk about the timing and the flow of what we consider the best day ever. The fun/elegant/party vibe that came through with LJ Events at its backbone is something we will never forget and can’t thank them enough for. We cannot recommend them enough, there will be absolutely zero regrets.Sent on 04/03/2019
