    Great Experience with Lisa Gordon Events!

    Lisa is amazing! As our day-of-coordinator, she made my life so much easier in the weeks leading up to, and on, our wedding day. She was extremely organized and made many helpful suggestions that I would not have thought of to make everything run smoothly, and did a wonderful job coordinating all of our vendors and setting up and striking all the decorations etc. at the venue. It also helps that she is extremely kind and patient :)

    I would 100% recommend using Lisa for your wedding needs!

    Lisa was our day of coordinator for our wedding at Architectural Artifacts Inc on 8.8.09. She was worth every penny! I wish we could give her more, because she deserves it! She was very easy to get in touch with, returned emails almost instantaneously, and was so willing to work around our schedules. Any idea we threw out there she was more than willing to take care of. The week before she called all of our contacts for us and all of our vendors were on the same page (which is so very important). Anytime we added a new vendor I just passed along the information and she added it into an updated spreadsheet with names, numbers, contacts, etc. So many little fires were put out that day before I ever even knew it happened! Not to mention out wedding venue was very very hot- Lisa worked so hard and didn't complain one single time! We are so grateful to have her coordinate our day- and at such an unbelievably reasonable price! Thanks Lisa- Alicia and Ryan

    Lisa Gordon has been the Wedding Planner at several weddings at which I have officiated. Whether we have worked together at the Shakespeare Garden in Evanston or at Rockefeller Chapel in Hyde Park, she is always organized, attentive and professional in every way. Her calming presence offers reassurance to anxious brides and grooms who are only too happy to leave all the details in her hands!

  • Sprung Photo - Victoria Sprung Photography Wedding Photographers

    Lisa was the Planner for a recent Wedding that I photographed. Not only was she very organized, but she was also very personable. I could tell that she was above and beyond the call of duty; whatever the couple needed, she was there for them. What you want in a planner is someone who will balance keeping things on track with making sure everyone has a good time...and that's what she was able to do!

  • Carasco Photography Wedding Photographers

    After working with Lisa Gordon of Lisa Gordon Events, we were extremely impressed by her friendly manner of managing wedding day details while exceeding even the most discerning clients’ expectations. Lisa truly has a servant’s heart and goes above and beyond to ensure that the bride and groom are able to spend time celebrating rather than worrying about the day’s itinerary. You can count on her to put out fires without anyone noticing and make everyone feel at ease. Her extensive planning experience, attentiveness, and can-do attitude are a sure match for any couple looking for a planner that will completely get their personalities, vision and style. We highly recommend Lisa Gordon Events for your wedding planning needs.
