Best Wedding Planner Ever
The best wedding planners ever. Seriously, stop your search right here. We had been working with another planner up until the last two months before the wedding. It was clear it was not going well but we were nervous about changing at that point. I will tell you it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Stephanie helped us make a smooth transition and demonstrated great communication and hard work since that point on. She explained Kristin would help us from there since she would be there the day of. Throughout those last two months, they both worked hard to redo several elements that were already planned and communicated so well with me throughout the entire process.Sent on 06/01/2019
There were several parts to our small wedding that were a lot of extra work but Kristin put in extra effort to ensure that they went well. I was extremely impressed with her communication with the other vendors the day of and how kind but direct she was long after I would have lost my patience. Our wedding day was so hot and Kristin worked so hard the entire day. Of course things were not perfect, as they never are, but I was able to relax and know that Kristin could handle anything that came up. We were able to laugh when things went off schedule and have fun which I am so grateful for.
I will also say that we are not your traditional wedding people but created something that was a reflection of Dan and I as a couple and we felt supported in that the entire way. As a female small business owner myself, I can say that Viva L'Event is extremely well run and these women know the meaning of hard work. I have no idea how they do it and do it so well but you will not be sorry about hiring them. Their experience shows in everything that they do. We are very grateful and will miss working with them.

I worked with both Stephanie (owner of Viva) and Kristin (month and day-of coordinator) for my wedding, and they were so easy to work with and well worth the money. Stephanie gave me some very helpful ideas as far as one year prior to my wedding date, and I think her expertise truly showed on the day of my wedding. Kristin was definitely an MVP of the wedding. She helped coordinate all of my vendors who had not necessarily worked with each other before, but she was able to get everyone in sync. The entire day was seamless, and Kristin even came to my hotel suite so I wouldn't have to make a trip to the venue the day of the wedding. She ensured that everything was to my liking and even accommodated all my last minute changes. Most importantly, Timmy and I were able to enjoy every minute of our wedding without even having to worry about getting a drink or food. I highly recommend working with these Viva ladies for any special event! Even if your budget is small, I would recommend at least getting a month of coordinator to have a stress free wedding day like I did :)Sent on 10/12/2018

Stephanie was spectacular! If I could give her a billion star rating I would. Lindsay and I loved her from the very first interview. Stephanie explained the process, was very informative and a great communicator. She is so sharp and responsive with e-mail. She gave us the confidence that each detail had been reviewed and was completely under control. Stephanie made Lindsay's vision of her dream event come true. It was truly a "just show up and everything will be perfect" day. I cannot say enough good thing about Viva L'Event and the peace of mind it gave us to know that she was on top of every detail with the vendors and the timeline. It couldn't have been lovelier!Sent on 10/01/2018
Our company had the pleasure of working with Viva L'Event on a wedding recently. We work with a lot of wedding planners in the area, and Stephanie and the rest of the Viva L'Event team really impressed us with their organization and their beautiful event that they pulled off. We were hired by Viva L'Event to provide wedding transportation- and everything went very smoothly on our end- thanks to their excellent planning and communication! The event itself was beautiful and the wedding party and the guests were able to relax and enjoy themselves. I hope to work with Viva L'Event again soon!
I have worked with Stephanie and her Viva L'Event team on several weddings and I am always blown away by their thoughtfulness and professionalism. As a vendor, they always provide an itinerary the week of the wedding to make sure everyone is on the same page and to keep everyone on schedule. I will never forget when I was working one particular wedding and when Stephanie brought the bridal bouquet over and surprised the bride with a small framed picture of her late father attached to the bouquet's stem. The heartfelt gesture was so touching. Those little touches are what make Viva L'Event special.
Working with Viva is always a pleasure. Stephanie has a great eye for design, as we have several venues for her to test her palette on. Each time, she molds the space and the clients vision together perfectly. We highly encourage you to meet with Stephanie when you are considering a planner or designer.
