a DREAM of a wedding planner! :)
I cannot recommend Linnie and her team at Bohemia Events + Design enough! Choosing a wedding planner for one of the biggest and most memorable days can be an overwhelming process. From the minute we met Linnie, I knew we were in good hands. Linnie was excellent about listening to our vision for the day, our priorities, what was important to us and man did she deliver. Trusting someone with your wedding day is so hard because it is such an emotional day, but Linnie and all of her vendors were truly amazing. Every single vendor she recommended just blew us away with quality, design, customer service and compatibility for our vision. Our wedding day came together like a dream! Linnie is so good at what she does that we were able to really enjoy and be present in the day and not stress over the details. There are SO many things that happened behind the scenes seamlessly thanks to Linnie that I am eternally grateful for! If you want someone with impeccable style, the skill to bring your vision to life and an all-together wonderful person to work with, I would recommend Linnie again and again!Sent on 07/11/2019

A maid of honor’s perspective!
Bohemia Events + Design is truly a DREAM of a wedding planner!! With the hottest day of the year in D.C. and a weather forecast that changed every five minutes, she remained calm, cool, and collected! Her attention to detailand eye for beauty helped create the most beautiful wedding! And goodness, she KNOWS her wedding vendors.. I truly think the best of the best were at this wedding , and it was the most amazing, creative, and perfect day! But what I appreciated most about her wedding planning style was how much she truly cared about the bride and groom! Her top priority was making sure their day was not only exactly what they envisioned, but was stress-free, well-organized, and thoroughly enjoyed by each of them! If you’re considering a wedding planner, Linnie is your person!! And I was just the MOH!Sent on 07/07/2019

Stress free planning!
I am so beyond grateful we found Linnie! She gave us the most perfect, beautiful wedding day. We went with her full planning services, and it was seriously the best decision we made. She paired us with the absolutely BEST vendors that fit with our style and vision for the day. She listened to everything we wanted, and directed us when we were (constantly) indecisive. I was not one of those brides who knew what she wanted, but I did think I knew what I didn't want, and Linnie really helped me organize my thoughts (often changing my mind - and she was right!) She honored exactly what we wanted, gently nudged us to rethink a few things (thank goodness!), and advised us on the million things we hadn't thought of. My husband and I are *slight* control freaks, and she handled our constant questions and requests so gracefully. She handled all of the vendor communications, so we were able to be really calm in the weeks leading up to the wedding. And the wedding day went SO SMOOTHLY! Linnie took care of everything both before and afterwards, so my husband and I were just able to relax and enjoy the day. If anything went wrong, we didn't hear about it. We just had the most incredible, beautiful day. Thank you, Linnie!!Sent on 10/28/2018

If you are a bride or groom considering hiring a wedding planner, I can almost guarantee that you will need one. So DO IT! But not just any wedding planner, you need Linnie! Linnie is absolutely amazing at what she does. She’s the perfect balance of professional and fun. And that’s what planning a wedding is supposed to be, fun!Sent on 01/15/2018
Throughout the process of planning my wedding, it felt as if I had a friend helping me with everything rather than just a wedding vendor. Linnie really listened to what my vision was, even when it changed a couple times along the way. She coordinated meetings, emails, and even met with me multiple times to make sure I was on track with everything. It completely took the guesswork out of the whole process! Not to mention that the two weeks leading up to my wedding was the MOST stressful and I was just SO happy to have Linnie there helping. I nearly lost my mind trying to come up with a schedule on my own that coordinated all of the different vendor arrivals, only to have Linnie assure me that she had it already taken care of. Thank God! So when it came to the big day, all I had to do was wake up, get in my limo, marry my best friend, and have fun! It really was such a perfect and special day and it wouldn’t have come together so perfectly without Linnie’s help throughout the entire process. So trust me when I say, hiring Linnie will be the best decision you ever make (besides marrying your best friend haha). ALSO, shout out to her awesome husband, SkipperFilms, who was my wedding videographer! They are truly the dynamic wedding duo!

We hired Linnie from L & L events for the complete planning package and it was one of the best decisions we could've made. We were new to the area and really benefited from her knowledge about vendors and locations, she helped us with our vision and really made our day truly amazing. She was there with us every step of the way and helped us through all the (minor) hurdles that appeared in our planning process. We felt like she really cared about us and our wedding and we 100% believe that she really made a difference on how magical our day felt, and was for us and our friends and family. I recommend her and her team wholeheartedly.Sent on 11/01/2017

Linnie was truly incredible to work with. As someone who has never been involved with planning a wedding before, I felt overwhelmed with the entire process until I hired Linnie. She guided me through the entire process, helped me find a vision for the wedding and managed every aspect of our actual wedding day. She was so easy to work with, and I felt like she was really looking out for what was best for me and my husband on our wedding day. Both my mother and MIL were initially skeptical about hiring a wedding planner, however, by the day of the wedding, they both couldn't stop talking about how glad they were that we hired Linnie. My husband and I were able to really just relax and enjoy our wedding day and know that Linnie and her team had things under control. The entire L&L team were delightful, professional and so incredibly helpful. Thank you Linnie!Sent on 07/19/2017

I can't speak highly enough of Linnie and L&L Events! Shortly after getting engaged I realized that wedding planning was way over my head, so I searched and searched for a planner to help me, Linnie was the only one who reached out to me right away and from the very beginning to the very end made me feel taken care of! She is absolutely a professional as well as a very friendly, personable, and down to earth kind of person. It took my fiance and I forever to figure out our date and venue we just kept bouncing around ideas, and through it all Linnie was so helpful and professional, she found us the most BEAUTIFUL wedding venue (48 Fields, in Leesburg, VA on May 6th 2017). What I love so much about my experience with Linnie and L&L Events is the length she went to to make sure that every detail was right, and that her bride and groom were taken care of. She sent me a beautiful ribbon of my wedding color scheme to use in my bouquet, just because! And she would never hesitate to call me or even meet with me personally if I needed to talk about anything regarding the wedding. On the day of our wedding she made sure that hot food was brought right to us during the reception. I could not recommend her enough. My husband and I would have never been able to pull off such a perfect wedding without her! Her organization and ability to keep a literal army of vendors and people organized was what really allowed me to enjoy the process and enjoy our special day! Linnie and L&L Events are phenomenal!Sent on 01/18/2018

I'd like to introduce you to Linnie and L&L events. My (now) wife and I were married in DuPont Circle, Washington, DC in early November 2016 and Linnie crushed it!
Agile. As you can imagine, weddings do not always go exactly as planned no matter how much planning, preparation, and experience involved. There is always some exogenous force that pops up such as changing weather, a DJ that isn't on her/his game, etc. Linnie took care of these types of issues for us so that my wife and I could enjoy time with our friends and family. Ideal!
Execution. She would check in every 1-1.5 hours for about 20 seconds or so. I don't know if that is her plan, but it was great for me as a groom and making sure the event was great for my bride to enjoy her day. We were updated on things going well, on what was coming up next, she would suggest small adjustments for our "blessing", etc. And in between updates, she always seemed to be within reach when need be. Perfect!
Above and beyond. Our wedding was not just an event, not just a ceremony, not even just a celebration ... our wedding is a lifetime memory of our love. L&L helped make that a possibility.
Vera · Married on 06/25/2016
We hired Linnie shortly after we booked our venue to help with our wedding planning. That was the best decision we made! Linnie helped us with the selections of different vendors including photographers, caterers, DJ, florist... and we are very pleased with all our vendors. That really shows how much Linnie understood our expectations. She is very prompt with emails and extremely easy to work with. She made me feel very comfortable like a friend that I can address all my concerns and raise any questions. On our wedding day, Linnie and Julia took care of all the issues and schedule. It was completely stress free of us. It was a absolutely perfect day and I don't think we would be able to do it without Linnie!Sent on 07/14/2016

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Linnie to plan our wedding. She had some great ideas in helping us plan our special day. She was available whenever we had a question and met with us whenever we needed to. She was very involved in the rehearsal to ensure that everyone knew where to be and when to be there. She made sure that all of our decorations for the wedding day were set up appropriately and that the room looked flawless! If there were any issues during our wedding, we had no idea.Sent on 05/02/2016

I can't say enough about Linnie and her crew. They are down-to-earth and extremely competent. Linnie made herself available to meet us in person and over email and listened to and understood (and followed through) with our biggest worries surrounding such an important day for us. She had fantastic recommendations for the vendors we hadn't hired (especially our officiant, but that is another review). The day was perfect and exactly the way we imagined. Linnie and her team were a big part of making that happen, and reassured us in the process leading up to it to keep us from losing sleep.Sent on 02/08/2016

Linnie was so amazing to work with. I had an outdoor wedding planned and it quickly changed to an indoor wedding (at a different location) and having to rethink how things were going to be setup. She made the venue look gorgeous and perfect for the ceremony and reception and had 2 days to make it happen! She understood my vision which was very important to me. I cannot thank her and L&L Events enough for all the hard work they did for us to make our day special and perfect!Sent on 10/11/2015
Kaitlyn · Married on 09/12/2015
My husband and I can't thank Linnie enough for helping to make our wedding day perfect! We had a pretty long engagement and we were in contact with Linnie from the very beginning. She helped to keep us organized with every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed the planning process because of her.Sent on 10/05/2015
When our wedding day finally came, everyone around me kept commenting on how calm I was. That's because I had full trust in Linnie to execute all of the details. Not only did she execute......she went above and beyond our expectations! She is courteous, detail-oriented and kept things running smoothly from rehearsal to ceremony to reception. As a DIY bride, I had so many little details that I'd planned. Linnie brought all of my ideas together and allowed me to sit back and enjoy my own wedding. We couldn't have done it without Linnie!

I hired Linnie from L&L events to assist with day of wedding coordination. I had created, hired, and organized our wedding but about a month before the date I realized we needed help on the wedding day. I knew I couldn't be everywhere at once on such a special day and I needed that peace of mind. Thank God I hired Linnie! Every vendor I hired was wonderful and produced as expected except our caterer. The problems are too many to list but Linnie was the front person dealing with all of the issues. I can't even imagine how our reception would have turned out if she and her assistant had not been there. In addition to the day of coordination she meet with me for an initial consultation, at the ceremony and reception site to go over details, and was very prompt with replying to my various questions and emails. Most importantly she stayed after we the reception and took care of everything so we could leave without concern. She gave me her personal phone number and assured we would be her priority in the days leading up to our wedding. She also sent an email to our caterer with supportive documentation regarding our issues. It was nice to know she was there to support us in every way. I wish I had found her earlier because her positive attitude and creativity is wonderful. Her prices are reasonable and I would not hesitate in hiring Linnie.Sent on 02/02/2015

I was originally on the fence about needing a wedding planner, as I intended on having a very small and intimate ceremony. After doing some research and meeting with Linnie, I realized how much I needed one! There were so many details- I can only imagine how stressful it would have been to coordinate everything without her.Sent on 09/16/2014
Linnie was so great at conceptualizing what we wanted for our big day. She had the best ideas about venues, officiants, flowers, the cake, decorations, favors, etc. I was a very picky bride- I wanted my ceremony and reception to be elegant, tasteful and unique to me and my husband. Linnie went above and beyond to make that happen.
For a wedding of our size (less than 20 people) she was still able to secure vendors that would accommodate a cake and flowers on a smaller scale. She was very quick with these details, you can tell she knows her way around the local vendors!
My greatest concern was our venue. We expected a lot more foliage in mid April, and really had our hearts set on getting married outside. With only 10 days before the wedding, we were realizing our initial venue wasn't going to work. All the trees were completely bare. I was so worried about how are wedding pictures would turn out. Linnie did her research and came across a beautiful winery in Middleburg. Because of this, our day was perfection. It was so romantic, and the rolling hills in the background were nice and green :)
I could not be more pleased with Linnie's work. She put in a lot of effort- I never had to wait around for answers about details. Instead, she would regularly reach out to me with new ideas. It showed me that she was constantly working on our wedding without me having to ask the status of things. Then, there is the heart she put into it. She really listened to mine and my husband's needs and wants for our wedding, and she delivered. On the day of the wedding, she was the first to arrive and the last to leave. I HIGHLY recommend Linnie!

Linnie was a joy to work with as our day of coordinator! She was available for several in person meetings before our wedding and was also very responsive over e-mail and text. She was also able to assist with set-up before our wedding when we needed a few more hands to help arrange our barn wedding. During our wedding day she was very calm, made sure my husband and I had food and drinks during our pictures, made sure I had all the little extras (ibprofin, lint roller, etc) and monitored all of our vendors as they arrived on site. I didn't worry about a thing! She also dealt with a small emergency when one of our guests needed to go to the ER. I had NO IDEA this happened during our reception and she did an amazing job of not making me feel stressed. She's a great choice!Sent on 10/01/2013

Having Linnie from Hello L & L events for day-of coordination services was one of the best investments we made in our wedding! We planned most of our wedding ourselves, but we hired a day of coordinator to handle all of the craziness the day of. Because our wedding was a destination, we definitely needed someone to be sure that all the vendors, most of whom also traveled to the destination, were on the same page and organized, especially since it was a new venue to all of them.Sent on 07/22/2013
Linnie gave a lot of really good practical advice and has experience working with not so detailed vendors and even not so calm family members. She started meeting with us a few months before our wedding and would check in periodically to see how things were going. She was also there during the rehearsal, and handled pretty much everything - this is something to think about, we had not considered who would run the rehearsal, so we were extremely appreciative that Linnie stepped up and handled it for us.
We could not have imagined our wedding day going as smoothly as it did without Linnie being a part of it….she was there for anything and everything, and was so proactive in taking care of all the little problems, details, and last minute changes that came up. She put my wife and me at ease (and this is not an easy thing to do) and we were able to enjoy all of the little moments without having to worry about any details.
Linnie is extremely detailed and organized and her personality puts you at ease unlike so many other wedding planners that are high strung and would have stressed us out more. Looking back, if we were to do it all again, one of the first things we would do is to bring Linnie in as coordinator, so that we could calm ourselves, knowing things would be under control.

Choosing to work with Linnie was one of the best investments of our wedding. Although I wanted to plan it all myself, I knew I needed recommendations for vendors and someone to execute my vision, so we went with the partial planning package. From the beginning, Linnie provided helpful guidance, vendor recommendations (including our incredible florist, Brookhill!), and was there bounce ideas off of. It was extremely helpful having her and her team at our wedding to pull it all together! Thank you L&L!Sent on 10/13/2016

Linnie helped make our old hollywood themed wedding classic and memorable. She worked with our small budget, and made sure that my husband and I got what we wanted! It was like planning your wedding with your best friend. She was excited for us, very helpful, and gave great suggestions and ideas!Sent on 06/20/2015
