Before hiring The Privilege Is Mine for wedding coordination services, my bride and I thought that it would be quite difficult to synchronize the many moving parts of our event, including a brewery, five food vendors and an after party bus. Lara and her team proactively and effectively handled every challenge thrown at them - no request was too big or too small. We appreciate Lara’s calm, yet in command, manner and how she took the time to get to know us and our needs. She arrived at our venue before us, left after us, and in between made sure everything was taken care of. We wholeheartedly recommend The Privilege Is Mine without reservation.

A planner is a MUST and Lara is the one!
We worked with Lara for full planning for 9 months for our 40 person wedding, and I could not be more pleased with her service. Also, as a person, she is the best! Chelsea is too! From the beginning, I had an ever changing list of ideas, from amount of guests to if we even wanted a ceremony, and she was by my side supporting me through all of it. On our wedding day I truly felt I could reflect back on our planning journey and how everything evolved from that first phone call, and so much of it is credit to her. She took my (6 page!) vision board and helped make it a reality. We had several meetings, phone calls, tastings, countless texts, emails and google docs. And I actually enjoyed wedding planning! As an anxious bride, it was SO HELPFUL to have someone to ask 1000 questions who was happy to answer, and always new the answer. I’ll never forget the day she said to me “it’s okay to be doing nothing.” I felt so calmed with her in control of everything, and it allowed me to enjoy the day fully, even if things didn’t go exactly to plan (that’s just life!). I never worried that a thing wouldn’t work out, and I knew she had it. We had our wedding and our reception at a place that had never held a wedding and it was no easy task to coordinate with them, but she made it all happen. Her referrals saved us money, and those were the vendors that were my absolute favorite. Our guests had a great time, and every bit of it from the setup to the clean up was what I wanted. Hiring her helped me and my family enjoy my wedding day 100% and I would absolutely recommend hiring a coordinator to anyone and everyone

Rock Star Coordinator!
Lara is absolutely wonderful. She kept us organized, connected us with vendors when we needed and even designed my wedding dress when she discovered I hadn’t found one yet!
Her calm, professional and confident presence was very reassuring. She was open to hear all of our wacky ideas, and managed to incorporate them in the most perfect way. My husband and I had a 10 hr wedding & reception all in the same venue that our friends are still raving about weeks later. We couldn’t have done it without Lara and her team.
Our company worked with Lara Mahler and The Privilege is Mine on a beautiful outdoor wedding out on Governor's Island in September. She was called to coordinate this wedding with less than 3 weeks time to organize. We were one of 15 vendors she worked with. It was a tall task! She handled everything so well and communicated each step of the way to ensure our team could get onto the island and have everything we needed to succeed. We at Soundhouse ran the AV side of things for the wedding and the challenges were aplenty. Power supply was limited, there were four separate outdoor setups at the venue, and there were two bands scheduled to play on a field with no lighting at night. Without Lara detailing everything to me and walking me through the venue space in advance, there is no chance this wedding would have gone so smoothly. She had backup plans in place. That was one of the more impressive weddings I have ever seen be pulled off and it's all thanks to The Privilege is Mine! This is as trustworthy of a wedding planner that you'll find in NYC.
