    Best Wedding Day

    Elisabeth, owner of Upon a Star was excellent to work with in planning my daughters wedding even after the pandemic pushed it back a year. Very detail oriented, which made the wedding day flawless. Would 100% use again.

    Upon A Star's reply:

    Thank you so much in believing in me!!! It was my absolute pleasure Mary! I am so thrilled the day was absolutely perfect. Surrounded by your family and friends who had been waiting two years for this special day made it all worth it!

    Wedding Planning

    We hired Upon A Start Events in 2019 for our wedding! After seeing their team execute so many amazing weddings and events in the Boston and surrounding areas we knew they would do a great job. Lis had the creativity we were lacking and she brought such a fun, amazing energy to our planning! She quickly caught on to our style and continuously came up with new, exciting ideas that we loved! When COVID-19 hit, Lis seamlessly moved our wedding date to 2021. She advocated for us better than we would have ourselves to make sure that our day was the most special. We certainly would not have been able to secure a wedding date in 2021 with ALL of our same vendors if it weren't for Lis. She is truly amazing and was always there for a phone call of meeting whenever we needed it. She planned a stunning bridal shower full of surprises!!! At our rehearsal event, all of our guests complimented us on the Upon A Star staff! They were beautifully dressed, professional, and on top of EVERY minute of our event. Lis was always one step ahead of us - even our guests commented on how she somehow was the last person out of the rehearsal at the chapel and the first to the rehearsal event. The day of the wedding was so seamless because of the Upon A Star staff who dropped off welcome bags to our guests at multiple hotels, checked in at the venue to ensure vendors were arriving and setting up as planned, then back in with the bridal party to ensure everyone had what they needed. If you are looking to avoid last minute stressors Upon A Start Events is the way to do it!!! Lis was there at times I didn't even know I was going to need her... like when my mom and MOH headed off to the ceremony in separate transportation and I was walking to meet my dad. Lis was with me so I wasn't alone! At the reception in the midst of all the fun and commotion Lis was there to bustle my dress when I couldn't find my mom or MOH. Every day of our special weekend was flawless thanks to Upon A Star Events and it continues to be amazing post wedding with all of the surprises we have received!! You will NOT be disappointed with Upon A Star Events! I would rebook for another event in a heartbeat!

    Upon A Star's reply:

    Two years in the making but your day, sandwiched between the rainiest July ever was absolutely the most beautiful day ever! I am so lucky to have clients that value my work and rely on my experience and creativity. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me to get you all the way thru. It was such a pleasure working with you and Brett and I wish you a lifetime filled with lots of love laughter and happily ever afters.

    Top level product!

    Working with Lis is a dream. Not only is she knowledgeable about her craft, but she makes it so we didn't have to sweat anything for our big day! Our reception was done DIY style, and really it all came together because of Upon a Star Events. On the morning of the wedding, instead of making sure all our stuff was together and where it should be, she had it covered, leaving us to enjoy the morning with our respective wedding parties! Couldn't have had such a successful day without her!!

    Upon A Star's reply:

    It was such a pleasure planning your beautiful wedding at Briar Barn! I was honored to create an event that completely reflected such a wonderful couple!!
