    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.

    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.

    Amazing!

    Stephanie is absolutely amazing! She is so caring and sweet and from day one, she made me feel special. She took the time to get to know me and my fianc茅. She made this process that can be so stressful and hectic, smooth and efficient. I always felt like I had someone knowledgeable, skilled, and talented in my corner. She made us feel so taken care of the day of as well refilling our drinks and helping me to field different scenarios and stay on schedule while still having fun and enjoying the day. Stephanie is amazing and if we could give her 10 stars, we would!

    VIVA L'EVENT's reply:

    So thankful that you chose Viva to be a part of your special day and hearing these words make my heart so happy, exact how you both should feel on such an important day in your lives. It was a joy!!!

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.
