Hire a day of coordinator!
Where do I begin with my experience with NYE and Lauren West? I was apprehensive to hire a day-of coordinator, but in hindsight it was the BEST DECISION I EVER MADE! Lauren helped us with so many details that would have slipped through the cracks, and made sure everyone was on task. She even helped put out a major fire on our wedding day (our valet never showed up) and put my mind at ease about the situation. If you are getting married and you are a stress-prone person, HIRE A DAY OF COORDINATOR and specifically hire NYE and Lauren West! I promise your wedding day will be enjoyable and magical and you won't have to worry about a thing!Sent on 01/09/2020

Naturally Yours Events is THE BEST!
We knew Naturally Yours Events was the right fit for us as soon as we finished our phone interview with Carlene! She was professional and organized, while managing to keep things lighthearted. Because of her experience and expertise, Carlene helped take the stress out of wedding planning and allowed it to be an enjoyable experience! Her wedding planning tool kept us on time and organized. Her knowledge of the venues and vendors allowed us to help make our dream wedding become a reality. We always felt like her only priority. You will not regret having Naturally Yours Events help plan your wedding!Sent on 01/18/2020

Dream wedding thanks to BESt coordination
Where do I even begin? Kristen wowed me from our first phone call with her thoughtful questions and genuine enthusiasm, and it only got better from there.Sent on 01/15/2020
We engaged NYE for "day-of" coordination, but it was SO much more than that. My (now) husband and I had an incredibly thorough introductory meeting with Kristen months before our wedding date, and another two weeks before in which she walked us through every single detail of how we wanted our wedding to go. I had been feeling very overwhelmed by the entire wedding planning process at that point, but Kristen made all the little details fall into place gracefully. Not only did she make every decision easy, it was clear every step of the way that she wanted what was best for US. She knew exactly when to make recommendations (on things we weren't sure about like timing, tables, etc.) and when to execute exactly what we knew we wanted (like helping me surprise my groom with a cake based on our favorite TV show and catching his reaction on camera).
Kristen helped us with ever-changing hair + makeup timelines, bridal party email templates, complicated contracts, and just about every single detail you can imagine goes into planning a wedding. On the actual day, I felt her presence more than I saw her, because she was off ensuring everything ran perfectly--which it did. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Kristen and her team (all of whom are super sweet and professional). CANNOT RECOMMEND NYE ENOUGH!!!
Carlene is such a joy to work with and has a high standard for her clients and dedication to them through all stages of the wedding planning process. Her attention to detail, work ethic, and patience are invaluable to any couple in hopes of finding the right person to help plan and coordinate one of the most important days of their lives.
Carlene works to make your day memorable. She really understands what it is like to plan an eco-chic wedding.
Carlene is wonderful to work with! She has amazing attention to detail and works hard to ensure that she exceeds her brides expectations!
