    Our favorite part of wedding planning

    Collaborating with Lynn at The Finer Points was the best part of our wedding planning experience by far. Lynn was always calm, has so much experience and guidance on weddings in the Loudon area, and made sure we were on track. When we started wedding planning in January 2021 for a 2022 wedding, we didn't know what to expect with covid. Lynn helped us find affordable vendors, work with them to bring our vision to life, and ensure everything went smoothly during the weekend itself. She was always available to answer questions too, which we really appreciated. Thank you to Lisa who helped on our big day as well! I will miss talking to Lynn regularly now that our wedding is over :)

    The Perfect Wedding thanks to Lynn and Nicole from The Finer Points

    We had the most amazing wedding experience all thanks to Lynn and Nicole from the Finer Points. It exceeded any expectations that we had and Lynn knocked it out of the park! Our wedding experience with Lynn and the Finer Points was definitely a journey as we originally had our wedding scheduled on September 2020.

    As we all know, we had to reschedule and push it back to October 2021 due to the pandemic. Lynn was with us every step of the way these past 2 years and we could not have asked for a better planner to help navigate us through this experience. During our journey of planning and replanning, Lynn had a group of trusted vendors that she recommended to us. The florist that she recommended understood our vision to a T and put out the most amazing floral package together. Our original caterer had to drop due to the pandemic but Lynn quickly had a strong alternative recommendation and our guest genuinely enjoyed the food and the presentation of everything. Lynn had prior experiences with the venue so she knew exactly what to do and how to make our venue perfect for our amazing day. Every recommendation that Lynn provided to us turned out to be AMAZING recommendations. There is obviously a lot of stress that comes with wedding planning, but Lynn always provided comfort to us every time we spoke and helped us navigate any questions or concerns we had.


    After all of the planning and replanning, our wedding day nears and we hear the scary news that there's potential for rain! Luckily, Lynn had the foresight to plan a rain backup plan just in case (luckily we didn't need it!). Throughout the planning efforts, Lynn and the Finer Points created a detailed itinerary for the day that was executed to a T! We had some last minute scope creep as our families wanted to add some traditional Chinese tea ceremonies but Lynn was able to accommodate us and add that to the schedule.


    Here comes the wedding day. Lynn and Nicole had FLAWLESS execution. Lynn and Nicole were in contact with all of our vendors throughout the lead-up and the day itself -- so all of the set up was executed perfectly. As the processional of the ceremony was about to start, it started to rain! Obviously that stressed the wedding party out but Lynn was super calm and her presence calmed us down. The rain passed within a minute or two and the ceremony was executed flawlessly. Lynn and Nicole were amazing throughout the rest of the night and helped us, our guest, and our vendors with everything throughout the night.

    We cannot state enough, THANK YOU LYNN, NICOLE, AND THE FINER POINTS for the most perfect wedding we could have asked for that far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Lynn, Nicole, and the Finer Points to anyone as they helped us with our dream wedding.

    You NEED This Team!

    Having a planner/coordinator for your wedding is an absolute must! Laura Billak with the Finer Points was our saving grace throughout the entire process. They were the first vendor we booked after we secured our venue - and we found them because of the venue's high recommendation for them. Now we know why! Laura knows the wedding industry inside and out. She was there through every step of the way and made sure that we stayed on schedule with our planning and organization leading up to the big day. She was always available to speak to me - exchanging emails, texts, and calls at any time I needed her. Laura and Nichole understood our wedding vision perfectly and brought it to life (and better than we imagined) for the best day of our lives! Everything ran incredibly smoothly, without a hitch, and we were able to truly enjoy our day. We could not have asked for any better! We are now a month past our wedding and Laura is still helping me tie up some loose ends. You will be in the best hands with The Finer Points team!

All Seasons Floral Preservation All Seasons Floral Preservation Wedding Florists

Lynn & Priscilla have years of experience in wedding/event planning and they make a fabulous team. In addition to being creative, professional, and organized, they are a pleasure to work with. This combination enables brides to know that everything will be handled properly in a stress-free manner. It is important to have a good working relationship during the wedding planning process, but the real assessments can't be made until after the wedding is over. As a floral preservationist, I have a unique perspective in that I get to hear how everything went at the wedding, usually within 24 hours of the event, when the flowers are dropped off for pressing. This is the time when the details are fresh in the minds of the brides and their families. The "day after" reviews that I hear from Lynn & Priscilla's clients are always glowing ones! They often comment on how things went so smoothly, what a pleasure they were to work with, and how they were able to thoroughly enjoy the day knowing that everything was being taken care of. One of my favorite comments was, "the day was perfect, and if anything did go wrong, I didn't know about it!"
