Truly the best!

Wow - where do I even start?! Well, I must start by saying I am extremely late with posting this review because I wanted to ensure I had all the photos and words to express what a truly spectacular wedding Lissa coordinated for us. I was referred to her by another planner and I’m beyond grateful for that recommendation. I had this (somewhat) crazy idea in my head that I wanted to plan a Harry Potter-inspired/New Years Eve/Black-tie wedding. It was important to me that my core team really share my love of Harry Potter to help me bring the vision to life, in an elevated/classy way. When we had our first intro call, Lissa and I immediately clicked…not only did we share a love of all things HP & dogs, but she understood (and was super excited) the vision. I didn’t want our wedding to be weird…just an elevated experience with a lot of HP Easter eggs woven throughout. Essentially, I wanted her to help me recreate ‘Hogwarts at Christmastime’!

Lissa & I worked together over the next year, and I really felt like I had a friend by my side. She helped me navigate what things I should spend more time on, where we could save some money and when I was going a little overboard & could save myself some stress! Lissa had worked with some our vendors before but not all of them, but it didn’t matter. She did a masterful job at coordinating everyone, the timeline, and ultimately how everything flowed the day of the wedding. When we initially began planning the wedding, we all thought Covid would be well behind us by the end of 2021...little did we know, things were about to get extremely intense and stressful. I’m a relatively low-key bride but reached my breaking point the day of the wedding (illnesses, cancellations, reorganizing, etc.) and Lissa literally took control of everything (she literally had my phone taken from me…bless you Lissa!). She coordinated with my MOH so I could focus on the day and take in all the moments I would have missed worrying about little details. It was only in retrospect did I really learn about all the little things that Lissa (& my MOH) shielded me from and just handled.

When I think back on our wedding day (and the time leading up to it), I can’t imagine working with anyone other than Lissa. She has a very cool, calm, collected demeanor but you will immediately realize what a pro she is and what excellent taste she has. Lissa was great to communicate with and was always quick to respond to me via text or email. Our venue wasn’t particularly easy to work with but, again, she was the ultimate pro and worked through the kinks and ensured that our Harry Potter-inspired, black-tie, New Years Eve wedding was true perfection! Almost as important as her skill, is the fact that she’s just a kind, nice, and wonderful person. There are a lot of nightmarish, high-maintenance wedding vendors out there and I had no interest in that kind of energy. Lissa was the perfect person to coordinate everyone and set the tone for our wedding vendors…she’s the perfect combo of professionalism, personality, and kindness!

Lissa - I am so grateful that Scott & I had you by our sides to guide us through this process...I literally cannot imagine working with anyone else. Thank you for everything!

You need Lissa for your wedding planning!

Lissa is fantastic to work with! We loved her from our first zoom call. She is so positive and has such an uplifting energy. We had a month of coordination package and my only regret is that we did not plan the entire wedding with her. We both work full-time and wedding planning is a full-time job. Lissa did her best and made our wedding day special and as relaxing as possible. Our family was charmed by Lissa as well!

I cannot recommend her enough. She has been in the industry, she knows vendors and vendors know her too. We heard great feedback about Lissa from other vendors too. She is not just a wedding planner, she is your wedding bestie

Just Hire Lissa - You Won't Regret It!!

We hired Lissa halfway through our planning process after having a bad experience with another planner, and she was an absolute GEM from day one!! We were so fortunate that she still had our date available. Working with her was such a breeze! She was always very responsive, organized, had great ideas, and made sure we secured our final few vendors and hotel room blocks without any issues. She's so kind, empathetic, and just generally fun to be around, and she put us both at ease throughout the stresses of wedding planning. On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant got all the decor set up/taken down, made sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule, kept us hydrated, and just generally made sure everything was flawless!! It was such a dream working with her, especially compared to what we'd been dealing with before. I would absolutely recommend that any engaged couples looking for a planner just choose Lissa now - you won't regret it!!

Right after college, one of my close friends asked me to help plan her wedding and I thought, why not, who doesn't want to be like JLo in the "Wedding Planner"? ⁣ Even though Matthew McConaughey didn’t save me from a rouge taxi, I did find that I loved the planning process, logistics- and most importantly helping couples on their most special day!⁣

If you're a lover of dogs, sappy Hallmark movies with predictable plot lines, think tacos are the world's most perfect food, love to get down on the dance floor, and want a new planning BFF, we might just be a perfect match!
