There is no doubt that among the best decisions we made in planning our daughter’s wedding was to hire Lynn Iannizzi and the Finer Points to assist us in the planning. From the moment we met Lynn we were very impressed by her pleasant, personable, and genuinely caring nature and calm demeanor. We knew that she would be of great assistance to us and the perfect person to help with the planning. It was readily apparent that Lynn’s years of wedding and event planning experience would help us navigate through the wedding planning process and select vendors that would best meet our needs. As we ultimately discovered, she turned out to be far more than the perfect wedding planner and exceeded all of our expectations.Sent on 02/27/2021
We were well into planning for a July 2020 wedding and had everything lined up only to be faced with restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 Pandemic. We decided to reschedule the wedding for November 2020 and Lynn immediately dove in and successfully worked with all of our vendors to reschedule a November wedding. As the November wedding approached, more restrictions were imposed and we had to again adjust the wedding plans. Again, being the consummate planning professional that she is, Lynn was instrumental in helping us coordinate all of the additional changes that were necessary for the wedding and reception, even though both events would have to be phased back. Lynn calmly coordinated and guided us through all of the necessary changes, and because of her personal involvement and attention to detail, we were ultimately able to have a smaller yet still beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony and family dinner.
Lynn’s guidance and suggestions on venues, vendors and approaches for the wedding were excellent. From day one she was personally committed to making the wedding successful, always listened carefully to and respected what we wanted, offered thoughtful recommendations, and never failed to quickly respond to us when we had a question or needed her advice. She is a skilled wedding planner and we will always be thankful for her caring and tireless support. We look forward to working with Lynn as we plan a larger reception in the future.

Best choice we made!
I had the pleasure of working with Lynn for my 9/26 wedding, and I cannot emphasize enough how amazing she was. There is absolutely no way we could have pulled off our special day without her commitment, expertise, and passion. Due to covid, we were faced with the task of replanning our wedding essentially from scratch in late June. From the moment we reached out to Lynn, her warm and welcoming demeanor made working with her both enjoyable and easy. I appreciated her flexibility and clear communication, especially when I went back to work as a kindergarten teacher via distance learning. Had I been left to coordinate all the details on my own (which I foolishly thought I could at one point), I am confident everything would have fallen apart. Instead, Lynn fully took over the reigns and communicated on my behalf with the various vendors we used.Sent on 10/06/2020
When the wedding weekend arrived she was incredibly professional, energetic, and patient. I was able to fully enjoy my day knowing that Lynn had everything taken care of, right down to bringing her husband and his truck to the venue to move a generator! There were so many details in both the scheduling and the design of our wedding that I never would have thought of, but she made everything run like a well oiled machine. What’s more, she made us feel so special while doing all of the above. I cannot speak highly enough of everything that she did and would make the decision to work with her ten times over.

Detail oriented; precision execution;
I was skeptical on the need for a planner. We already booked a venue and the church and were well on the way to choosing vendors. I thought it was an unnecessary indulgence, but in the end, it was one of the best decisions we made. Thanks to Lynn's precision execution and calm demeanor, our daughter's wedding day, in the middle of a pandemic, was perfect. Through the process of planning, Lynn took the time to get to know and understand not only the bride and groom's wants and needs, but also both sets of parents who wanted to participate in the event. It was not easy balancing all the personalities and opinions, but Lynn's positive energy kept us focused on the outcome which was an amazing day for the bride and groom.Sent on 09/28/2020

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!"
