The most amazing coordinator for our wedding day!!

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Lori! We hired her as our day of coordinator and she did such an incredible job. She was an absolute god send in helping us pull off the most important day of our lives. She was so friendly, sweet, organized, helpful, detail orientated and took control when needed. She was so helpful during the wedding week and taking things off of my plate so that I could focus on other things.

Our wedding day ran so smoothly because she was so on top of it. I didn't worry about a single thing because I knew that she had it handled. We couldn't have imagined our wedding day without her. She felt like a member of the family! To make it even better, she took behind the scene photos throughout the day that made it even more special! We cannot say enough positive things about her. She did such an incredible job! We highly highly recommend.

Lori is 5 Stars all the way

Lori was a life saver the day of my wedding and the months leading up to it. Her knowledge and expertise of wedding vendors, scheduling, little details etc made it so I could actually ENJOY my day! I knew she had everything taken care of and I didn't have to stress. She handled everything flawlessly. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with wedding planning/day of coordination!
