Without a doubt the best decision we made during the planning process was to hire Noelle of Lily & Grayson events. By the time we reached out to Noelle we had most of the planning done so we hired Noelle for her "The Bare Essentials" package. We lucked out because she was just branching out into her own business so we got a steal on the pricing but I definitely would have paid way more, especially now after having worked with her.Sent on 12/06/2018
We got married 11/3 in Alexandria and our wedding had 150 people. I am an extremely organized person and definitely a worrier. I knew if I had any hope of enjoying my wedding day I needed someone else to take over. Noelle did just that.
From the moment we contacted her she was nothing but professional, even willing to meet in person before we hired her so I could make sure it was a good fit. She was extremely responsive and the thing I loved most was that she was in my corner. Our venue came with a coordinator, who was great as well, but a venue coordinator needs to to worry about their venue's requirements, the food service, the staff etc. Noelle was there and her number one concern was if we were happy and satisfied. She used to work as a wedding planner for a hotel and it is obvious that she has incredible knowledge and experience with what it takes to plan and pull off a wedding. She orchestrated and lead my entire rehearsal and my husband and I realized afterwards we would have had no idea how to do that ourselves and it was so nice to not have to think about it.
On the day of our wedding I didn't think about a single logistic. She bopped into my suite a few times to provide updates but I didn't hear about any problems or issues (I'm still not sure if there were any) which was just the way I wanted it. I got worried at one point that we were falling behind on the hair/makeup timeline and texted her since she was at the venue overseeing setup. She responded immediately then came to check in with both me and the hair/makeup artists and continued to monitor the situation.
I barely saw her at my wedding, but I know she was behind the scenes handling everything - and because of her we had the best night of our lives. We laughed and danced our faces off and didn't feel an ounce of stress. Noelle even helped us after our wedding and contract with her were over because we were still having issues with the hotel we used for our room block.
I am so glad I broke down and hired a wedding coordinator. I am a super organized bride, with a year to plan, and I still needed someone in my corner to help me pull it all together. You absolutely will not go wrong with Noelle. My only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner so she could have done even more of the planning and work for me.
Thank you so much Noelle for the HUGE part you did in making our wedding day literally the best day of our lives. My husband and I both agree that hiring you was the best expense we made.

Thank you again!!
The Lily & Grayson team gave us more than we could have ever dreamed of getting from a wedding planner. They took our input and concerns seriously, brought the most amazing expertise, style ideas, and overall wisdom to every meeting; and they made sure that we were excited about everything we were signing on to. We have absolutely no regrets about our wedding at all and would do it again and again. I can't even believe we almost ventured into this on our own. There are so many things to consider, to foresee, and to be skilled in before trying out. It's so clear that Noelle has been doing this for a long time but at the same time, she carries only enthusiasm for every part of the work. They were always on top of every detail, they saved us money and countless hours, and they made our dream a reality. Thank you again!!!Sent on 05/07/2019

The Perfect Day
Noelle and Ashley made sure our day went perfectly. They took all of the pressure off of us so that we could savor every moment KNOWING that the logistics and details were taken care of. In the time leading up, Noelle was extremely responsive and helpful for the both of us in working through the timeline, communicating with vendors, and problem-solving any issues. We absolutely loved working with her!Sent on 04/23/2019
