    Couldn't have done it without Lydea and her team!

    We are so happy we had Lydea and the team from Sophisticated Events at our wedding. I had wanted to plan and carry out the whole wedding on my own, but everyone kept telling me I would want a day of coordinator. We picked this group and are SO HAPPY we did. She did much more than just "day of" coordinating in my opinion. She met with us well in advance to make sure she know what was going on and what else we needed. We had a large wedding party, including 6 small children, and somehow the wedding went perfectly. I have no idea how the wedding actually started on time, but Lydea was moving everyone around in the background the whole time, insisting that I just enjoy the day (and the whole week really). From the beginning, she pointed out areas that I hadn't even thought of, asked much more direct, detailed questions than I would have when we met with the venue, and made sure that all of the vendors prioritized what I wanted. I could go on about the other things she did that I thought were above and beyond what she signed up for, but I'll just say that I think she is the reason that I look back now and feel like our wedding was perfect and stress free, and I think she is worth much more than what she charges!

    Look no further!

    Sophisticated Events LLC. is top notch! Ms. Lydea Proctor is very professional. She does not miss any detail when it comes to planning the perfect event.

    My wedding was on point! Ms. Proctor is very prompt and her goal is always for the event to start on time and run smoothly. All moving parts of the ceremony ran smootly. Her and her staff communicated well and did not get in the way of anything. You barely knew they were there.

    Transitioning from the outside ceremony to pictures to inside reception was flawless. Ms. Proctor is very particular about how that happens and will give suggestions of how to make those transitions run smoothly. The reception was bomb.com. Everything that was lined up for that portion of the evening was on point. No detail was missed and we had a blast.

    Overall, expect the best! I would book Sophisticated Events LLC. to plan any event that I have and trust that it will be just as flawless and special as my wedding day.

    ...no need to look any further than Sophisticated Events, LLC!!
