Hire pure lavish immediately!

This review is so incredibly overdue - where do I even BEGIN?! I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes thinking not only about how perfect our day was but how truly incredible the women of Pure Lavish are. Moral of this story: do NOT sleep on Pure Lavish. Sign with them immediately - your research ends here.

Buckle up for our story…

Looking for guidance while wedding planning is SO stressful - it’s hard to know where to start, especially planning a destination wedding (we live in Northern CA). We had our venue and our photographer but nothing else, so, being the researcher I am, I hopped on Google and began searching for “best planners in Orange County.” I found a few options, Pure Lavish included, and started submitting inquiries. I wasn’t sure about what kind of support we needed. I think when you start planning, you’re like “I can do everything myself and only need minimal support.” I was SO wrong - more to come on that.

Pure Lavish stood out immediately. Carrie, the owner of PL, was the one to respond to my inquiry with a customized, non-robotic, hilarious email that acknowledged my silly inquiry about not knowing what I needed. That interaction was a huge selling point for me. She quickly set me up with one of PL’s planners, Samantha.

To say that I clicked with Sam would be the understatement of the century. Her bubbly energy and openness made me feel like I was talking to an old friend. She was so knowledgeable and so helpful in answering my questions about what kind of support we needed. In my original budget, I didn’t plan on including a wedding planner, but I quickly realized just how important it was to have an expert as our guide along the way, as well as a creative lens to help with design. We signed with PL almost immediately after and didn’t think twice.

Over the next few months, it became clear just how well-connected PL is in Orange County. I had a pretty clear vision with a pre-defined budget that Sam knew exactly how to support. She identified all of the right vendors for what we were looking for and what our desired spend was for each part of the wedding. I ended up not doing anything myself and outsourcing everything because we loved all of the vendors so much. The network that PL brings to the relationship is probably one of the biggest considerations you should make as a bride.

My mom and I made a few trips down to Southern CA to do live planning, select rentals, tastings, etc - it was SO awesome to see Sam in her element and to experience vendor relationships live. PL has such a stellar reputation in Orange County - that was abundantly clear every time we met someone new that we were working with. No trip to OC will ever be complete without seeing Sam!

The time, energy, and excitement that Sam contributed to our wedding were truly incomparable. Her design board and ideas based on my feedback were absolutely perfect. We incorporated 100% of her ideas into our day and made our guests feel so special with all of the personalized recommendations that she made. The attention to detail, the command of the wedding party to keep things in line, and the ridiculous organization skills that she possesses are what defined the overall success of the weekend.

On wedding day, the PL team showed up in FULL FORCE. We were so honored to have Carrie there to support us, and our bridal concierge Caroline was the definition of “being in the right place at the right time.” A MIND READER! The worst part of the day was my shoe heel breaking (not bad, right?) and Caroline somehow crafted a clay pearl to match the ones on the broken heel. Absolutely brilliant.

The PL team has become family. I won’t ever be able to thank them enough for making our day the most wonderful day of our lives! I’ll also never get sick of the regular flow of compliments that we’re still getting 9 months later….

Just Hire Caroline and Pure Lavish - They are the best!

If you are reading this because you are looking for a professional wedding planner who you can trust, who will treat your time and money like their own, who will make your wedding absolutely beautiful, and who will ensure your day is stress free, stop looking and just hire Caroline Leggio!!

Where do I even begin to write my review about Caroline, Samantha, Carrie, and the entire Pure Lavish team? My husband and I had such an incredible experience with this group that there are not enough words for us to begin to thank each and every one of them! I know this is a long review, but I promise it is worth the read….

We hired Pure Lavish a year before our wedding after working with another wedding planner who turned out to be a disaster. Our previous planner had wasted our time and money, treated us with rude and demeaning behavior, and quite frankly, traumatized us. We were scared to hire another planner after our previous negative experience, but after many hours of research and recommendations, we were lucky enough to find Pure Lavish. From the first time we spoke to them, we knew they were determined to turn our experience (and our wedding) around!

They were able to take a tough situation and turn it into the wedding of our dreams. Caroline Leggio was our lead planner and designer. We cannot thank her enough for everything she has done. Her kindness, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail are unmatched. What makes Caroline so special is that she truly cares about her couples and she always puts them first. Trust me, Caroline is THE woman you want on your side throughout the process and on the big day!

During the planning process, Caroline saw our wedding vision and listened to us. She created an absolutely beautiful design that was elevated, unique, and elegant. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more! She was not just respectful, but actually protective of our budget and treated every single dollar as if it was her own - advising us on what she felt was worth the spend and suggesting various ways that we could save. She answered endless emails and calls with patience and grace. She was always responsive, transparent, and happy to answer questions we had. She was also there to help navigate any challenges as they popped up. She provided her recommendations, always looked for solutions, and created a stress-free planning experience for us.

Caroline is also extremely organized. She remembers every detail, even things we may have forgotten, and ensures they are completed. She was ALWAYS one step ahead of us - proactively sending emails to vendors, getting quotes, setting things up, and thinking of ways to make things better and easier for us without ever being asked. She truly went above and beyond. A great example of this behavior was a few days after our wedding, when I realized I didn't get a copy of the menu or our place cards for scrapbook keepsakes. I was pretty sad and actually emailed our stationary vendor to see if she could print replicas. A few hours later, I was cleaning up some wedding boxes and there they were - perfectly preserved and neatly placed in a bag by Caroline without us ever asking. She did this because she knew I was sentimental and would want them for later. Another example is on our wedding day, when she remembered our favorite cocktails and had them passed to us on a tray right after the ceremony. These are just a few examples, but she did little things like this a million times during the planning process and on our wedding day. She is truly the best!

Caroline helped us assemble an all-star vendor team for our wedding. Her recommendations for vendors were amazing and each vendor we worked with was a master at their craft - from the florist, to rentals, stationary, videography, DJ, and more. She not only helped us pick the best vendors to execute our vision, but also people who were genuinely nice and supportive. Her recommendations were spot on and she helped us select a team that executed our vision flawlessly.

On top of it all, Caroline has the most incredible positive attitude and demeanor. She was not just a wedding planner, she became part of the family. She is a friend to everyone. Our venue and vendors loved working with her. As we were checking out of the hotel after the wedding, the hotel manager came up to us to share how much she loved Caroline! For a 5 star hotel who does a lot of high end weddings, that says something! Our friends and family can also not stop raving about her, because each and every one of them had such positive interactions with her.

On the day of the wedding, Caroline and the Pure Lavish team were cool, calm, collected and complete professionals. Caroline managed everything perfectly and once again, went above and beyond to make each detail beautiful. She brought such a positive energy to our wedding and truly cared about making it the best day possible for us. On the wedding day, she even helped wipe sand from my shoes after running on the beach for photos. She hates feet, but she loves her brides more! Once again, this is just one of many instances of Caroline doing what she does best - treating each bride like family and going out of her way to make sure your wedding is perfect for you.

Caroline was also accompanied by Samantha Oropallo on the wedding day, who was our bridal concierge. WOW!! Sam and Caroline are the absolute dream team. While Caroline was running the whole production, Sam stayed with me and the bridesmaids to help us get ready. Sam was a lifesaver on the wedding day - she brought organization, positivity, and joy to a busy day. She helped me into my dress, fixed my hair, assisted my mother, gave me food and water, and rode around on a golf cart with me all day. Somehow, she also managed to wrangle 12 bridesmaids, 11 groomsmen, and 4 parents, and 1 grandparent. She even helped my husband cover up a stain on his shirt the morning of the wedding. She is truly a lifesaver and an absolute gem. I had no idea how instrumental she would be on the wedding day. We would have been a mess without her. She made both my husband and I feel so taken care of and at ease - we will never forget her kindness and compassion that day. Thank you Sam for making our wedding day so enjoyable and easy!!

If you have read this review and choose to hire Caroline Leggio as your wedding planner, consider yourself lucky because you just hit the jackpot. You would be hard pressed to find anyone more capable, talented, smart, fun, thoughtful, and kind to help you plan your perfect day. Hiring Caroline was the best decision we ever made and we cannot wait to work with her for other events for many years to come! We will never be able to thank Caroline, Samantha, Carrie, Calista, Amanda, and Chloe at Pure Lavish for making our wedding perfect. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Pure Lavish will make your dreams come to life!

There are so many things I would love to say about Pure Lavish events, but I will first start with saying they are THE BEST. Choosing to go with Pure Lavish was one of the easiest choices my husband and I made. We got to work with Alexa who is just the most pure and genuine soul! She made our dream come to life - and actually made it 10x better than I could have ever even imagined. Getting to our big day was a rough one, as it was for many Covid brides. I remember the moment of having to postpone our wedding from 2020 to 2021 - Alexa was there with the most positive outlook and words of encouragement, something we were lacking on our end. She kept us going and it was worth it in the end! Her eye for detail is crazy good! We did not have the largest budget and somehow she still made the day feel like a fairytale. Between Alexa and the rest of the staff at Pure Lavish, the planning and day of process was seamless. I can not say how thankful I am to this team and specifically to Alexa. If you are looking for a sign of whether or not to go with Pure Lavish, this is it! Book them, you won't regret it.
