100% no regrets

We debated on getting a coordinator due to the size of our wedding (55). But I am SOOOOO glad we did. As I started my talks with Lisa, I realized how much is going into this wedding and that I needed help. She flushed out every detail, executed decisively and was a super fun person to work with. I was definitely stressed going into the weekend, the setup, the rehearsal. But day of… I just walked Lisa through all the boxes that were left and let her run with it. She handled all the caterers, cleaned up her working areas before guests arrived, handled the transitions, everything. I knew we put in the leg work prior to the wedding that come day of, that was Lisa’s time to shine. She just had her AirPods in and quickly worked through setting up the remaining parts of the day. I think my wedding day would have been one of my worst days if I didn’t have Lisa there. So thank you Lisa if you’re reading this. What you do is truly a skill and thank you for everything!!!

Excellent Experience from Day 1

I highly recommend Lisa Mattera and her wedding planning services. From the initial sales presentation, I knew Lisa would be a perfect fit for us. Lisa is extremely professional, highly organized, fun, intelligent, and a huge asset to the wedding planning process. I have no hesitations and I would hire Lisa for another event in the future. She was a true pleasure to work with and I received so much positive feedback from other vendors and guests on her professionalism and organization. Really, I cannot say enough. Lisa thought of every little detail of our wedding day and made sure we had a great experience.

Best planner ever!

I will start off by saying that I usually never write reviews, but I needed to with Lisa. From start to finish, Lisa was spectacular. I originally was only going to have a planner for the day of the wedding but after my fiancé and I met Lisa we decided to have her take the reins and help with the planning of everything. It was the best decision we made.

There are so many things that involve putting together a large wedding. We had 150 guests that we needed taken care of. Lisa listened to what we wanted and what our vision for the wedding was and helped to put it together. She helped me pick out the rest of the vendors we needed. The biggest was the catering. I had no idea all the extra things that were involved when having an event catered. Lisa helped with all of it.

Her communication though out the entire process was amazing. We communicated through email, phone and in person. She took over communication with all the vendors, which was a huge help. My fiancé and I run our own business and that takes up most of our time. So not having to communicate back and forth was a huge help. We could not have pulled off the wedding of our dreams without her.

We were married in September this year and the day of the wedding went off without any problems. If there were any, I never heard of it. It was amazing.

Lisa was one of the first people to show up. She helped with the arrival of all the vendors. She made sure everyone, and everything was getting done exactly as we wanted. The best part was that all our vendors were amazing. Everything was done as we had envisioned it. Lisa was also one of the last people to leave. Before she did, she helped pack up all the leftover food, decorations, and flowers that we wanted to keep and take home with us. She placed everything in our tent so it would be ready to pack in our truck the next morning when we left. I never expected that. That is just one of the many small and huge things that she did to make our perfect day even more perfect. I honestly don’t know what we would have done without her.

Thank you, Lisa, for everything!

My love for event planning started at a very young age. My parents only had to mention in passing that we guests were coming over and I would spring into action. Menu cards would get designed, a fancy table would be set, and entertainment would be planned. I didn’t know then that this would be my future, but I’ve been fortunate enough to spend more than 20 years doing just that. And while I would hope that my events of today are slightly more sophisticated than those of the 7-year-old me, there’s no doubt that creating happy gatherings for others is what I was always meant to do.
