    Highly Recommend Lu & Birch!

    Laura from Lu & Birch was so amazing to work with! My wedding this September was full of twists & turns & re-planning due to the current COVID situation. Laura was able to be flexible and adapt to the new plans with ease and confidence. The day of the wedding was a lot of set-up and organization and Laura and her team were able to handle it all professionally while successfully bringing my vision to life.

    Laura is the best!

    As a couple impacted by Covid, we worked with Laura on our wedding for basically two years. She was by far the most supportive, flexible, and reasonable vendor we worked with.
    On our wedding day she was a rockstar and the details shined through. It's just one small anecdote, but Laura was so on top of things that she delayed our bridal party speeches because one of our parents was in the restroom.
    She was on top of everything. We could not give her a higher recommendation.

    Lu & birch is amazing!

    Honestly, if I could give each rating for Laura TEN stars I would! From the beginning, my mom and I LOVED her (and that's an understatement). We met with Laura twice (and another time with just my mom) before the wedding to go over the timeline/run down of the whole day, and not once did I feel that she wasn't prepared. Also, she met us in Illinois (northern suburbs) and drove all the way from Milwaukee to accommodate us when my mom and I couldn't make it to Milwaukee after work hours during the middle of the week.

    For lack of better words, she "bent over backwards" in helping us with logistics of dropping off decor when we didn't have enough room in our cars (she even dropped off our wedding cake at the hotel the next day after the wedding- I mean come on, how awesome!) She ran the rehearsal walk thru the night before the wedding in 15 minutes flat- even though the location was moved last minute, which did not fluster her at all. She spent HOURS contacting the DJ, band, caterer, photographer, florist, officiant, etc. and took copious notes which showed us how organized and on top of everything she really was!

    She is an absolute delight, and coming from someone was skeptical of hiring a day of coordinator, I would urge anyone reading this to hire Laura from Lu & Birch!!! I had the best time at the wedding and not once did I feel overwhelmed or annoyed with her- she knew exactly how much to assist and when not to step in. Everyone commented to me how smooth the wedding ran and I can say truly it was because of Laura! She is sweet, knowledgable, easy going, understanding, and overall one of the main reasons I felt our wedding was a HUGE success!

    I give her the highest possible recommendation! She will make your wedding seamless, I promise! (I only wish I could work with her again... but hopefully I am only getting married once, haha). I am Team Laura 1000%!
