The Best Wedding Investment

If you want peace of mind on your wedding day, I HIGHLY recommend hiring LyKai. I hired her as a day of coordinator and to my surprise, she helped keep us organized and on track months leading up to the wedding. She’s SO experienced and good at what she does, there was many times she mentioned things I needed that I totally wouldn’t have thought of on my own. She is 10000% worth hiring. Definitely the best investment in our big day. My husband (oo husband hehe) and I look back and realize we should have hired her as a PLANNER because she is so amazing and we trust she would’ve taken so much off of our plate. I will recommend her to all of my friends and family members to at LEAST hire her as a day of if you can’t as a planner. You won’t regret it!

LyKai is incredible.

Phenomenal, outstanding, incredible, one woman army. Words are hard to find to describe LyKai's excellence and our experience with her as our wedding coordinator.

Initially, friends and family members of ours were very skeptical from their own past experiences with coordinators. Only suggesting day of coordinators due to the venue's requirements and nothing more. By the end of our reception, those same people were praising LyKai's work and wishing they had hired her themselves.

From the beginning before we even signed her, LyKai's passion, knowledge and ability to transition concepts/ideas into reality were so evident. Those never waivered at any point. She is also kind, patient, personable, extremely hard working, efficient, organized and an excellent, prompt and efficient communicator.

Our wedding would have not been possible or nearly the same without LyKai. Her fingerprints were all over the entire process. She helped facilitate and streamline the planning process. She contributed her own ideas and built off of our own as well, converting both from concepts to reality. We booked our venue, hired her and every vendor afterwards was a recommendation from her and we were thrilled with all of them. Her day of execution was flawless.

We legitimately cannot say enough good things about LyKai as both a person and a coordinator and you will not regret hiring her. We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator.

LyKai is AWESOME to work with!

Not only did I recently work with the amazing LyKai Johnson but I’ve worked with her many times before and every time she brings her all to her weddings, whether it’s her great, clear communication, her willingness to adapt to changes, her dedication to a teamwork ethic, or her friendliness and her punctuality and professionalism. LyKai understands what an awesome wedding should look and feel like, both for vendors and for the bride and groom. As a professional wedding DJ I know how difficult some weddings can be to execute with style and grace as everyday in our industry we find ourselves at a different venue and with different clients (who we have to prove ourselves to regardless of how well yesterday’s wedding may have went); this is exactly why I enjoy working with LyKai, not only because she knows what she’s doing but she is also friendly and funny which keeps me feeling supported and ready to tackle any challenge especially if I’m feeling off my game on a particular day.

Thank you for all of your wonderful LyKai, I appreciate you!
