Best decision

LJ planned us the absolute perfect wedding. We were planning the wedding from across the country in addition to having busy schedules and she made everything go so smoothly. Not to be over the top, but it truly was everything we dreamed it would be. She took care of all the details we wouldn鈥檛 have even known existed. In addition to throwing a great event, she is thoughtful and kind and was super supportive of us in the planning process. She was always responsive to our questions and kept a timeline to keep us on track. She included us in all the decision-making, but never made anything feel tedious. And as an added bonus, she had one of the best rates out of all the planners we looked into in the area. You should hire her. She鈥檚 really good at her job and fun to hang out with.

Lj is in-cre-di-ble

Disclaimer--we are a COVID couple! We first got in touch with LJ back in 2019 an opted for a four-month planning package. We had done the initial heavy lifting in terms of booking and coordinating with vendors but really needed help tying everything together. She was amazing from the start. What struck me was how patient she was; neither of us had been part of many weddings at that point nor had either of us planned one. She gave us thoughtful suggestions and never pressured us into anything we weren't all in on. Due to the pandemic we postponed the wedding THREE times, finally landing on September 2021. Throughout it all, LJ was always available for any questions that crossed my mind. She even moved out of the Santa Cruz/Monterey area and went back to school and STILL made time to answer our questions and calls. Once planning ramped up, you would not even know she was no longer doing this full time. Her attention to detail and patience was unchanged. As of that weren't enough, in between our original wedding date in March 2020 and to now, my husband and I moved halfway across the country for me to start my medicine residency, and LJ was more critical than ever--she fielded all questions from our vendors, tied and re-tied loose ends, kept our 'homework' light. She was a godsend as I did not have the time or brainpower to deal with any details, with a time difference on top of it all. On the day, she came to the hotel where the bridal party was getting ready to check in, and grab any last minute items we forgot to give her the day prior. And of course. we had a timeline that inevitably had to be altered due to unforeseen delays, etc. To add to it all, we had a large opinionated family, a toddler and a dog part of our ceremony, whom she all wrangled beautifully. LJ handled it all with grace and made sure we never felt like we were on a time crunch, and made sure to remind us it was OUR day. Toward the end of the night, I finally let go of the to-do list that had occupied my head for the last several months and just had fun--LJ coordinated clean up and packing up of cars while my husband and I gallivanted around with abandon. She was kind, professional, prompt, patient, and incredibly attentive. Without question, I would recommend anyone having an event to entrust LJ!

Don't think twice - just hire her!

Don't think twice - LJ of LUX & JASPER was absolutely one of the BEST decisions we made when planning our wedding last year in Monterey, CA!! If you are lucky enough for her to have availability, just hire her. She makes the stressful process feel manageable, and I was fully confident on the day of the wedding that she had everything under control. She is also super creative - it's such a gift to chat with her and hear her ideas to transform a space.

We had a more complicated wedding schedule, with two separate Hindu and Christian ceremonies in one day, and with a tea hour, cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, the works - her and her ladies moved around our guests seamlessly. She also dealt with some vendors & our venue through tricky situations, and kept us out of the loop in the moment - exactly what we wanted so we could be as present as possible.

So incredibly grateful for LUX & JASPER!
