100% recommend!

Do yourself a favor and book Jelena and her team! She has your best interest in mind and thought of little things I would've missed. She is involved at the venue walk through, rehearsal, and of course day of. Just having her around gave me peace of mind that everything would be taken care of. She is detail-oriented and just gets it done! She was a calming presence on the big day as well which was so appreciated. Having her come back at the end of the night to help clean up was also SO worth it. She is organized and always responded in a timely fashion. We also had her book our honeymoon to Greece and I'm so glad we did. She knows what she is doing and it was such a relief to not have to book everything ourselves. Book Love Story Events!!! It is so worth it and you will be glad you did. :)

The best investment!

The Love Story team, Jelena and Mimi were a huge help with our wedding. They were organized and stayed in touch with us periodically as we worked through wedding planning. The day of the wedding we had two issues pop up (and Jelena was available right away to handle them! She took the stress of little problems away from us and we had a seamless, amazing wedding thanks to their help!

The perfect Planner for us!

I hired Love Story for our wedding last year and quickly realized it was one of the best decisions I've made! My fiance and I live out of state from where our wedding took place so we needed more than a coordinator, so we booked the "Guidance and Coordination package" - the BEST!

I had monthly meetings with Love Story which helped me out a lot with all of my planning questions and needs! They were available for any questions that I had which helped to take away so much stress! The team were on top of it with all of the details and coordinating with our venue and vendors, even the vendors complimented Love Story for their communication!!

Our wedding day came and it was perfect thanks to our planners! Thank you so much for everything!
