    Amazing team for an amazing day!

    Lia and her team are FABULOUS! Throughout the planning and coordination process before the big day, Lia was incredibly responsive and helpful. On our wedding day it felt as if everything fell into place with ease - though I am sure that is because Lia and her team were on it! They treated all our guests with kindness and professionalism. Multiple of my guests asked after the event how I found such an amazing team! Absolutely would recommend Lia Adams Events!!

    Our Day Was Magical Thanks to Lia!

    Lia is absolutely amazing to work with!! We had a very short engagement and were planning a micro wedding and needed someone who could step in and help make it happen. After much research online and on social media, we thankfully found Lia!

    Lia went above and beyond all our expectations. She was there every step of the way from the moment we booked her and provided such amazing support. We seriously couldn't imagine our day without her, she was vital!

    When some challenges out of our control (and Lia's) arose, she seamlessly smoothed them out and found solutions. Additionally, we wanted a unique wedding that was authentic to us and Lia helped us make that happen by encouraging us to follow our visions of the wedding.

    Lia did so much more than plan! She transported decor and essentials to the wedding, helped our AV vendor set up, facilitated venue relations, helped with serving dinner/champagne for toasts, and honestly so much more!

    What we also loved about working with Lia was the strong communication she created with our other vendors to assemble a complete team. She reached out to each of them personally and scheduled phone calls to get to know them and their processes. Our vendors shared how much they loved working with her. She handled all the communication of timeline, set-up times, etc. It took so much off our plate!

    Lia also provided incredible referrals for other vendors such as florals and audio. We were so glad we went with her recommendations!

    Lia's incredible teammate, Jessica, was also there to support us on our wedding and she was extremely professional, diligent, and supportive just like Lia!

    We are so grateful for all Lia and Jessica did to make our day so magical! We highly recommend working with Lia Adams Events!

    She kept me calm and brought our ideas to life!

    Lia thought of every detail as our big day approached and kept me calm. We had to postpone our wedding twice and she helped us every step of the way. I really appreciated her checkin calls to make sure I was staying on task. She even made sure we had pet sitting lined up for our fur babies! Lia is friendly, truly cares about making your day everything you've dreamed of and supports you during the process. I didn't worry about a single thing on our wedding day knowing Lia was in charge. I highly recommend hiring Lia to help you with your wedding. She was a blessing!
