About

On WeddingWire since 2023

LJ White Creative specializes in creating beautiful and unique weddings with personalized details. We provide a multitude of event planning services ranging from Elopements to Day of Facilitation to Full Service Event Coordination and everything in between.

Your coordinator will collaborate with you to produce an unforgettable event that will be tailored to you and your fiancé. From finding the perfect location to your last dance, we will be with you every step of the way.

During a complimentary initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our event planning services and ask questions. Once we determine what services are needed through this consultation, a proposal will be created customized especially to your needs. Please contact us to schedule your initial consultation!

DESTINATION WEDDINGS

Our specialty: whether you’ve always dreamed of a wedding on the beaches of Mexico, a vineyard in Napa, a ranch in Wyoming or a villa in Tuscany, we have the resources, on-the-ground partners and in-house foreign language capabilities (as needed) to plan your destination wedding weekend. For couples like you, we’ll design and plan multi-day experiences, from your welcome party to farewell brunch, all with our signature full-service design, planning and styling and the necessary accommodation and transportation elements required to make your weekend as enjoyable as possible for you and your guests.

We’ll also customize activities and excursions throughout the wedding weekend, where out of town guests can enjoy a variety of local experiences like wine tasting, hiking, balloon and bike tours, and more. For venues outside the U.S., we work with our local partners to blend the essence of local culture with your vision for a celebration that is uniquely you.

PARTIES & EVENTS

One of our favorite ways to continue our relationships with clients is through private celebrations. We love to plan and we don’t just do weddings…. In addition to workshops, styled shoots, and coaching sessions, we are also available to design and plan private events such as dinner parties, anniversary and birthday parties, baby showers, bar/bat mitzvahs and children’s parties with the impeccable taste and perfect execution that is synonymous with our event planning.

Larissa is the best in the industry

Larissa single-handedly made our wedding day the most incredible and seamless day. From working with us as we got a little behind schedule (she built that into the schedule—brilliant), getting us back on track, making the experience wonderful for us and the guests, she went above and beyond any expectations I had for a coordinator. (Many people told us “this was the best and most fun wedding we’ve ever attended!”

I had zero stress about planning and executing the day-of details on the wedding day, which was the best wedding gift, since I actually got to be present and enjoy the day. Additionally, her vast experience makes the planning process so quick and easy, the rehearsal a breeze, and the day a dream for the couples. She even helped us figure out how to get an exit photo before everyone left, accommodated my husband’s bourbon request, and handled my husband’s very detailed questions with grace.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Larissa and wish we could get married again just to get to work with her again.

Amazing Sidekick

I was on the fence about a day of coordinator (I was in 'do it all' mode) thinking I didn't need her. And whoo buddy was I wrong. Larissa got involved well before the day of, found a few flaws/things I overlooked in my plan and sorted it immediately. Leading up to the big day she was responsive and communicated timelines and left me to plan my hair and nails. Day of, I didn't need to lift a finger. Everything was handled, even my dress train. She then followed up and got my DIY decor back to me in a timely fashion (and flexible since I caught a cold on my honeymoon).

I don't wanna get married again, but if I do, I know who I'd trust. She did an amazing job with my special day.

Fantastic Experience - Would Definitely Recommend!

Working with Larissa has been so wonderful from the very beginning. Every detail was attended to, communication has been and remains over the top, and she goes the extra mile in every way. Hopefully I wont need to work with her for another wedding but I definitely will use her again for another event!!

Planner

Originally from Australia, I have been so fortunate to travel and live in some amazing places in the world, experiencing so many cultures, hence my love for all things culinary, design, art, history and architecture. Virginia Beach is where we call home and I get to enjoy time with my amazing kids, my Fiancé, and our adorable dogs Luna and Dixie.

Living my best life includes exploring restaurants, breweries, distilleries and wineries, along with going to concerts, road trips, trying out new recipes from my French Laundry cook book, amateur iPhone photography, collecting hats, crystals, reading romance novels, diffusing essential oils, and growing plants (crazy plant lady here). Currently obsessed with Yellowstone (if you know, you know), oysters, tattoos, bourbon, pops of color, texture and patterns.

It's all about being open minded, sharing stories for inspiration, creating memories, learning, growing, and having fun.

We are all about the details and ensuring our clients have the best first day of forever.

Cheers!
