    Absolutely amazing!

    My husband and I got married at the O'Donnell house in Palm Springs and we had Lisa as our day-of coordinator. She was SO much more than a day-of coordinator to us though! Lisa was so helpful, responsive, caring and organized. I was unsure how everything just 'comes together' but trusted that Lisa had everything under control and she sure did! The wedding turned out PERFECT and I owe much of the success to Lisa. HIGHLY recommend :)

    Lisa & Laurie are absolutely fantastic! We had our wedding at the ODonnell House in Palm Springs on 3/17 and are still beaming from our perfect day. Lisa was always available to email, text or talk on the phone whenever I had questions or concerns. She was our rock through this whole process! Our day couldn't have been more dreamy, she handled every detail to make sure our wedding was sheer perfection. I've cried a few times because its over! The Events Department will take care of you to the fullest. I cannot thank them (and especially Lisa and her assistant Bridgette) for their incredible service and passion. I will miss working with Lisa daily. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts <3

    We worked with The Events Department for our wedding at Smoke Tree Ranch and we could not be more thrilled with the experience. We were lucky enough to work with Laurie through the entire process, starting 8 months before our wedding. From start to finish, Laurie went above and beyond to answer every question and put our minds at ease. Laurie and her team know the Palm Springs area so well and were able to help us out with recommendations for everything from donuts to a last minute tailor. The weekend of the wedding was a dream. Laurie and her team were organized, professional and a calming presence. Many of our guests even commented that it was one of the most seamless and enjoyable weddings they've attended. If you're getting married in Palm Springs, work with The Events Department!

We worked with Laurie Lund May 8th @ Rancho La Quinta Country Club. We had a technical snag that could have ruined the event but Laurie keep the client calm and informed. She is a true pro and made our event go better than expected. Thanks George Loreto Undercover Band Leader
