Victoria is absolutely the best! She was so very helpful on our big day and leading up to the day. Contacting our other vendors to coordinate and make sure everything was just perfect. It was a big relief to not have to set up at the church and the venue. Everything looked beautiful and she captured my vision just perfectly! I can’t speak highly enough of her. She is the greatest!!Sent on 02/14/2020

Amazing. Look no further! She did everything I needed and more.
Let me start by saying no amount of words can describe the great job Victoria did for me or the amount of help she was. I highly recommend to anyone looking. Stop your search and book with her and Lavish Events!Sent on 02/20/2020
To go into some detail, she helped with the entire planning process, the rehearsal process and everything day of wedding.
I had so many ideas for my wedding day. I’m typically the party planner in my family and there was a point where wedding planner was not something I was willing to do. But as time went on, I learned that it would be impossible to make sure the wedding went smoothly and my vision came to life without another person like me. Victoria was that person.
She met with me several times pre-wedding to go over my vision and request, she met with me a few times to help me shop, she even bought things on her own and asked if I would like to use them (of course, she nailed my vision down).
On rehearsal day she was there to make sure everything stayed on track. She came up with ideas for walking down the aisle, even gave the fathers (I walked down with 2) instructions on who to hug first so it did not look like complete chaos up there. Kept the little ring bearers and flower girls occupied after their big role. Without her there our rehearsal when have been all over the place and lasted twice as long.
On wedding day, she helped to coordinate with all the vendors, made all my last minute payments for me, set up, tore down, directed everything. She kept us on schedule and let us know when we were going over our time for photos. And she did it in the most supportive way. She told all the bridesmaids to make sure they came to her with problems and to leave me out of it. We had outfit changes that she helped with as well. She was even nice enough to make sure we got food, drinks and appetizers from happy hour, and dinner. She kept them to the side and kept them warm while we were running around.
Wedding day went so fast, it was a blur. If it wasn’t for her it would have been a chaotic blur and I would probably have been hungry, thirsty and overwhelmed.
I was able to relax and enjoy my day. She made my day perfect. At the end of the day I was able to just leave my venue and she had everything taken down, and stored until I was able to get it. Did I mention I would have probably looked horrible too? She came to me several times to offer small items, chapstick, lipgloss, mint, to fix my hair or dress. She was amazing.
She even met with me after the wedding to return my items and ask me how everything went.
In summary if you didn’t feel like reading all of that and wanted to skip to the end, she was perfection. Not one complaint. She is creative, professional, sweet yet stern, responsible, affordable, helpful, and goes above and beyond to make sure the bride and everyone involved in the wedding has a great time. Look no further, you found your planner! Thank you Victoria for everything.
Oh, and I loved her so much I recommended her to my cousin for a sweet 16 she was throwing and she did not disappoint with that either. She does it all!
