We decided to hire a day of coordinator and I’m so glad we did. We loved working with Lisa. From the first time we spoke until she hugged us goodbye on our wedding night she was nothing short but amazing. She is professional, prepared, organized, kept things running, extremely knowledgeable, pays attention to the smallest details and honestly the best thing about her is on our wedding day anytime myself or my husband needed something she was always there and it was perfect. Not only are her professional skills amazing Lisa is also very relatable, down to earth, and sweet.
Closer to the wedding, Lisa checked in, set a time line, organized all of our vendors, and helped with every little tiny detail. I highly recommend using Liven It Up!

Lisa was my day of wedding planner. I looked for a planner after booking all my vendors but once she was on board, she was in great communication with everyone. The day of the wedding, I didn't need to worry about anything and she always checked in on me . I would highly recommend !!

If you are a person who likes to make sure everything is well planned and executed with excellence, I highly recommend hiring Liven It Up. We worked with Tiffany as our day of coordinator, and she helped to give us peace of mind weeks before our wedding up until the day of. She reached out to plan our day of schedule much earlier than we expected, especially since we hired her for the day of only. As a result, she guided us through our final planning decisions based off her wealth of experience and helped to manage logistics questions with our other vendors to free up our time and brain space. We were sad that she had to miss our rehearsal dinner due to traffic from snow, and our party could noticeably tell we were much more anxious. The morning on the day of, I was getting overwhelmed again trying to direct people where to go until she and Greg arrived and made everything else go smooth behind the scenes. Hands down, Tiffany and Liven It Up was one of our best decisions for our wedding.
