The Best Decision We Have Ever Made
Lindsay helped us bring our dream wedding to reality. She helped us stay on track throughout the entire wedding planning process, and we loved how organized she was so we never had to worry about a thing. It was extremely helpful to have a local wedding planner help us connect and secure the best local vendors. We really appreciated how she kept up with our vendors throughout all the planning and was able to help us manage our stress along the way. Even on the day of the wedding she worked her magic and kept us calm and poised. We absolutely loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone planning their wedding. (We already miss our planning phone calls and meetings!) She goes above and beyond and we truly do not know what we would have done without her.Sent on 10/30/2019

The best addition to the wedding planning process, PERIOD!
At first we weren’t even sure if we needed a wedding planner but we decided to go with Lindsay. My father works in banquet and wedding Events in Tahoe and said that if we were to get one, she’s it. So we did and WOW, the best decision we could possibly make. Lindsay is so on it, she truly cares about making the big day special and went above and beyond to ensure everything was on time and ran smoothly. She’s done so many weddings and was able to get us all set up with things we didn’t even know we should have. You can’t go wrong here, honestly to save you and your significant other the insane stresses of that big day, let Lindsay run your ship you will NOT regret it!Sent on 10/08/2019

The best EVER!!!!
If you are thinking about having a wedding in Lake Tahoe, you MUST use Lindsay as your planner. She is the absolute best! There is so much that goes into making your wedding perfect and Lindsay was there for us every step of the way. From hosting regular check-in calls to making recommendations throughout the process, she really takes the stress away. Looking back on everything it really felt like Lindsay was not only professional and diligent, but she was friendly and calm. My Husband and I truly feel as though we built a friendship with Lindsay that will last long after the wedding. With the experience Lindsay has she was able to make recommendations on everything from florist to table decorations. Her knowledge of the Lake Tahoe area is second to none and not being from the area this was something that was imperative to us. Any time we needed help communicating with vendors or meeting deadlines Lindsay was right there. She makes herself available whenever you need her, and I think we can both say she is one of the main reasons our day was so perfect.Sent on 09/24/2019
Choosing a wedding planner is a big decision but I can promise you, picking Lindsay will be one of the best choices you make throughout the process.
Thank you, Lindsay, for all that you did for us!
Cloud Nine Event Company's reply:Sarah & Scott, the pleasure was truly all mine! You are two of the sweetest souls I have ever encountered. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day!!

Hire Lindsay. Full stop.
First things first: You should reach out to Lindsay today and hire her. We interviewed a number of planners for our wedding and gravitated towards Lindsay because of her vast knowledge about the wedding industry, her no-nonsense approach and her warm, welcoming personality. We worked with Lindsay for over a year and regularly told each other how hiring her as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made. We both have all-consuming jobs, meaning our time for planning was limited and usually came in bursts when we were together and free. Lindsay handled these bursts of work seamlessly and kept us on task when we slacked on certain aspects of planning. She was so organized and got both of us to buy in on the utility of Aisle Planner, a program that made planning our wedding - with her help - a breeze. She was also blunt with us on certain aspects of our wedding, telling us directly whether something was necessary or not, a trait we greatly appreciated. And our decision to hire Lindsay was also validated by the way that other vendors - from our venue to our DJ to our baker - reacted when they found out she was our planner. All of them relished the opportunity to work with Lindsay, making it even clearer to us that we made the right decision. Lindsay is a true professional whose care and calm we will long associate with our wedding. We were honored to have her with us on our special day.Sent on 09/24/2019
Cloud Nine Event Company's reply:Dan and Monica, I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to write this beautiful review. I, too, truly enjoyed the year plus planning with you and am already missing our regular chats and emails. Thank you again for allowing me to assist you with your gorgeous celebrations. It was truly an honor.

Lindsay is amazing!
If you are reading this review, the first thing you should do is reach out to Lindsay to work with her. She is the absolute best. Lindsay is everything you could wish for in a wedding planner and more.Sent on 07/14/2019
I, as the bride, worked with Lindsay over the course of a year for my June 2019 wedding. From the initial meeting, where we set a budget and worked through the larger items that needed to be accomplished like picking a venue, florist, photographer, etc to all of the little details that make it all come together, Lindsay was nothing but pro-active, accommodating, and organized. I also appreciated that I never once felt like she pushed us into anything we were unsure of. I have had friends who have felt like their wedding planners pushed them into the more expensive options, but this was never the case with Lindsay. If anything, she helped us figure out ways to save. Lindsay’s number one goal was to give us the wedding we dreamed of, which was exactly what she did. She handled all communication with the vendors and would consistently check-in with us and was extremely responsive when we reached out with any questions. Lindsay also has a great relationship with all the vendors in the Lake Tahoe region, which is always helpful. It is obvious that she is well respected within the Tahoe wedding industry.
Even when we had a hiccup with the band we had chosen, only 3 months before the wedding, Lindsay very calmly informed us of the issue and proposed numerous alternatives. Within a week everything was all worked out, all thanks to Lindsay. When it came to the week of the wedding, I was not stressed at all, which is very uncommon for a bride. So much so that numerous friends and coworkers commented on it. Everything was all taken care of and I fully trusted and knew that Lindsay had everything under control. Her calm, organized, thoughtful, and positive demeanor allowed us to have a seamless wedding day. She really does think of everything when it comes to a wedding. They say something always goes wrong the day of your wedding, but thanks to Lindsay, our wedding was nothing but perfection. Not only is Lindsay an extremely talented wedding planner, she is also a good person, someone you enjoy spending time with and working with. I feel so lucky to have worked with Lindsay!

Outside of my husband, Best wedding decision
We worked with Lindsay as a month and day of coordinator for our wedding on the North Shore in Tahoe at West Shore Cafe.
First, let me start off by saying that working with Lindsay was, hands down, the best money we spent on our wedding. If you’re starting off planning, my biggest advice is to save budget elsewhere and hire her- and stop whatever you’re doing and book her now. She is an absolute pro- she was so highly respected by everyone we met in Tahoe, introduced us to vendors we wouldn’t have known about and saved us money. I was definitely a ‘do it yourself’ kind of bride, and I was still able to be hands on with her. She took my vision and made it happen (and better). I couldn’t have imagined my wedding day without her- she is calm and collected, if there was any stress, I didn’t know about it. In hindsight, I wish I would have gone with the full planning package, just because I would love to have had the opportunity to work with her even more, but she went above and beyond even what we hired her for. She was just so responsive and thoughtful in everything that she did for us.
I can’t say enough about her- all of my family loved her, and my husband and I just feel so lucky to have had her with us for our wedding. When people take pride and love their jobs, it shows, and Lindsay is without a doubt one of those people.Sent on 06/19/2019

We couldn’t have planned the wedding without Lindsay!
Oh my gosh! We can’t say enough about Lindsay! We hired her as our “day of” coordinator but she offered so much more. Her advice all the way through the planning of our daughter’s wedding was invaluable. She was available by phone or email from when we signed the contract. Her knowledge of vendors in Tahoe helped so much. And everyone we called, when we mentioned her name, only had great things to say about her. She is very personable, professional, and helpful. The wedding was perfect and stress free, mostly because of Lindsay.Sent on 04/08/2019

Cloud Nine is the BEST!
I was definitely the bride that thought I didn't need a wedding planner and could do it all on my own. However, after starting to research and plan I realized I couldn't do it alone and needed to spend my energy wisely. And most importantly, I wanted to enjoy our beautiful day at West Shore Cafe and didn't want to worry about the little logistics that are bound to come up regardless if you like it or not. :)Sent on 01/17/2019
I am so incredibly grateful for crossing paths with Lindsay and Cloud Nine, I couldn't have imagined my day without her. We hired for the day of planning but quite honestly she was a HUGE resource and friend for me with questions leading up to the big day and most importantly, she was AMAZING to have for the rehearsal and day of wedding. From coordinating with family members to the little details of the layout of table settings etc, Lindsay was a game changer. If you are getting married in Tahoe, look no further, Lindsay is your lady. Thank YOU for being you Lindsay!

Our favorite vendor!
Lindsay was by far our favorite vendor from our wedding, and she made the whole experience so special! We hired her as a partial planner for our wedding at West Shore Cafe. She was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process (meaning, I always received a response within minutes) and she was so positive about all of our ideas. I had a few ideas that I really wanted to do but wasn't sure how they'd turn out, and Lindsay was supportive and as excited about them as I was. We also appreciated how 'real' she was with us when advising on vendors etc. - we always felt like she was telling us the truth. During the weekend of, she ran our rehearsal seamlessly and took care of absolutely every aspect of the design. She handled weather hiccups super smoothly and had a smile on the entire day. We can't recommend Lindsay enough!Sent on 07/07/2019
Sarah · Married on 09/02/2018
We could not have been happier with Lindsay planning our three wedding events (welcome party, ceremony/ reception, and brunch) for our wedding. Our year and a half planning process was seamless (and fun!), the entire weekend went perfectly, and I trust that even if it hadn’t, my husband and I never would have known. We loved our experience working with Lindsay over the year of wedding planning and heard from so many people that our wedding weekend was the best wedding they had ever attended.
Organization and experience: Lindsay made our lives so easy while planning a wedding. She was incredibly organized at every stage of our planning; taking detailed notes that were easy to access later once I forgot everything we had discussed, managing every vendor contract and required documentation, and tracking when payments were due and how much throughout the process.
Trustworthy and dedicated professional: Even before hiring Lindsay, we knew we could trust her completely. Lindsay and I exchanged 50 emails before even talking about signing a contract with Cloud Nine; we discussed venue options, Tahoe weddings in general, and each time Lindsay provided thoughtful and valuable input without making me feel pressured to hire her.
She is also an expert in the industry in Tahoe, and we loved our entire team of vendors we worked with (all Lindsay’s recommendation). Lindsay provided amazing recommendations (without overwhelming us with options). We could also trust her to work completely with the vendors on her own, which was a huge benefit to the planning process (not having to manage 10 different vendors myself? Yes, please!) and follow through where needed.
Almost everyone I know has had a planner add additional stress to their lives, or wish they hired a wedding planner. My husband and I considered ourselves incredibly fortunate to have had such a easy and enjoyable time planning and are so thrilled we hired Lindsay to help our day go absolutely perfectly.Sent on 09/23/2018
Cloud Nine Event Company's reply:Sarah, I feel so fortunate that you and Michael chose me to help you plan your wedding celebrations! I had so much fun getting to know you both over the last year and absolutely loved being a part of your beautiful wedding weekend in Tahoe. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review of my services...it is clients that you that make this job so incredibly rewarding!

Lindsay was simply incredible. Calm, organized, thoughtful, and meticulous... We could not think of a better planner by any stretch of the imagination. A few snapshots come to mind:Sent on 09/06/2018
1. In planning a beach party, Lindsay showed up 3 hours early to set up, hold space on the beach, and ensure that every detail went smoothly.
2. When a glass broke on our dance floor at the wedding, Lindsay brought out a broom and swept it up herself.
3. On the wedding night, Lindsay was literally the last person to leave (staying til 1am), bringing our extra programs back to our house for us, tying up loose ands, and even changing the water in our flowers so they would last an extra few days.
4. Lindsay was amazing at dealing with our parents during their crazier moments.
5. Lindsay took care of all communication with vendors in an expert fashion.
I could keep going on and on, but I think you get the point. Lindsay was perfection.

Amanda · Married on 08/19/2018
I can't begin to describe how lucky we felt to have Lindsay as our wedding planner/coordinator. Initially, I was not sure what my vision was for our wedding. Lindsay helped me walk through floral appointments, bounce off ideas, and provide her opinions (which I always requested hehe) throughout the process. I truly felt like Lindsay wanted to make our wedding just as special for us as she would have for her own wedding. I was able to ask Lindsay a billion questions throughout the months leading up to the wedding and she always responded swiftly and settled my nerves. I am a very Type A person and letting go is not always easy for me but knowing Lindsay was in charge put my mind at ease. For my wedding I had this crazy idea of purchasing my own mirror for a table setting and Lindsay volunteered for me to mail it to her house (as I was planning a destination wedding) so I wouldn't have to burden the grooms family (who lives about an hour from the venue) to hold onto the mirror until the wedding. I could not believe how quickly she offered to do such a thing and it made things so much less complicated for the family. The day before our wedding, Lindsay helped us run through the ceremony and passed out itineraries for all the wedding party and family to have. These were so helpful so everyone had a clear timeline in which they needed to follow the day of the wedding. I was sick the day before the wedding and it was apparent I was becoming overwhelmed. Lindsay reminded me she has it all taken care of and to just enjoy the day and I was confident knowing things would run without a hitch. The day of the wedding we had some craziness occur but Lindsay handled all problems with ease! To list off a few - grooms hair was crazy and she found him some hairspray, there was some family drama and she kept me (bride) as calm as possible, she went back to my room near the venue to grab me a makeup compact which I had forgotten, she rebustled my dress when it broke. Highly recommend!Sent on 09/17/2018

Lindsay was an absolute joy to work with! The system she uses for organization and planning was extremely user friendly and helped keep us on track throughout the process.Sent on 09/24/2018
We do not live in the Tahoe area, so it was wonderful having someone who knew the area and the vendors well to help us with scheduling, decisions, etc. Our wedding was at Lakeview Lodge on the top of Heavenly and Lindsay helped us deliver all of our personal items to the venue, which was a huge help. This was not an easy task as everything had to be loaded onto the aerial tram and onto a shuttle to make it to the venue location.
Lindsay had also previously worked with most of our vendors, which made the actual wedding day run seamlessly. The timeline on our wedding day was perfect; we didn’t feel rushed but there was also never too much lull time.
I would highly recommend Lindsay as a planner for anyone’s big day; ours would not have been the same without her!
Cloud Nine Event Company's reply:Thank you Hailey for all your kind words! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Cameron and your amazing families! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day...it was truly an honor!
Whitney · Married on 07/28/2018
If you want the best wedding of all time, you should hire Lindsay. I worked with her for about a year and a half to plan our perfect wedding weekend in Tahoe. She guided us through every step of the process - from helping us pick our venue, florist, band, food, make-up/hair, schedule to helping navigate all of the dreams and wishes of two families in two different states, Lindsay is, simply put, the best. Lindsay was involved every step of the way and able to provide us with realistic and helpful advice. She was also incredibly responsive to every concern along the way.Sent on 08/26/2018
I really don't know what else to say -- if you want the best, most reliable, most fun, most lovely wedding planner, hire Lindsay and Cloud Nine.

Lindsay is incredible!!! She was so professional and was able to handle all of our issues without blinking an eye! She was easy to eat in touch with and made the best recommendations. I could relax and enjoy the wedding day knowing she had it handled! I could have never done it without her and wouldn’t want to!!! Our wedding was amazing!!!

Christiana · Married on 05/27/2018
Lindsay was awesome and such an important part of our day. I knew when I started planning our wedding that I do not want to worry about a single thing the day of, which meant I needed to find a planner that we could trust and depend on. A couple friends of ours recommended Lindsay to us and what a great choice! Even though we booked the month-of service, Lindsay answered any and all questions I had and responded to all my emails promptly during the 1+ years I spent planning. She even met up with us for an appointment with our florist so we could finally meet in person. The days leading up to our wedding, we communicated a lot about the details which I appreciated. Finally it was our wedding day and I felt very calm and relaxed. I knew that even if something went wrong, Lindsay would be on top of it. My sister/MOH realized she forgot her bouquet at our Airbnb maybe 10 minutes before our ceremony was supposed to start and Lindsay had her assistant grab it and we ended up being only a few minutes late. She worked well with all our vendors and kept everything running so smoothly. She continuously checked in with us throughout the day and evening to make sure we had everything we needed, even if that's a glass of champagne or wine! Thank you Lindsay and team for making sure our day went off without a hitch and was stress free...it was such a special day and we couldn't thank you enough.Sent on 06/04/2018

I cannot say enough how amazing Lindsay and Cloud Nine are for wedding coordination and planning! If you are looking for a day-of coordinator or overall wedding planner, I would strongly advise you to stop looking and use them - they will truly take care of you and not leave you with anything to worry about on your big day!Sent on 05/23/2018
I used them for their day-of wedding coordination services, and they helped me so much with last minute details leading up to the wedding - serving as primary communicator and receiver for all my vendors, ensuring there was a day-of timeline (and that it was followed), leading the wedding rehearsal, helping me book some last minute vendors to really put the the wedding over the top, and all around being a great support for questions/concerns/issues that would crop up. As someone who's pretty organized myself and didn't know if I needed a coordinator, I was so glad I did. I had zero concerns about the day being a success because Cloud Nine and Lindsay were so on top of things while I was enjoying the day.
Lindsay is absolutely amazing - extremely organized, 110% committed to her clients, and really invested in making sure your big day is perfect - going above and beyond to make sure it is. My bridesmaids and everyone around me kept telling me how great she is - she's seriously the best!
As I said, do yourself a favor and put your big day in the best hands - you will be so glad you did.

Cloud Nine was recommended to me, specifically Lindsay. Lindsay did EVERYTHING. From answering panicked emails at night, to pinning closed my broken wedding dress zipper, Lindsay was amazingggg. She coordinated all the venders and had a schedule for the day of. Not to mention how she handled instructions and requests from both me and my mother. If you think you don't need a planner, you're wrong. You need Lindsay!Sent on 02/19/2018

After interviewing 3 wedding planners I knew Lindsay was a perfect match for Steve and I. The way she answered all my questions with such detail and even gave me ideas that I didn't even think about all on the first day of meeting I knew I needed her by my side on my wedding! Throughout the whole planning process she was there every step of the way. She answered all my emails promptly and put me to ease during the most stressful times. Being miles away from my wedding venue made me rely on her a lot and she exceeded my expectations of being hands on for me. She gave me advice and handled things I didn't even think about! The day of the wedding would not have gone smoothly without her! She was on top of everything! I got to enjoy my wedding knowing she was handling vendors, random issues and guests. She goes over and beyond then what a normal wedding planners job is and that sets her apart from the rest. She truly loves her job and you can see that from her which makes wedding planning that much more exciting with her a part of it! Being a control freak myself made it very hard to let someone else run the most important day of my life, but she was fantastic and my family and guests loved her! So if you are looking for an exceptional planner who goes over and beyond for not only the bride, but the groom and her family then look no further! Let go Let Lindsay!Sent on 12/19/2017

Lindsay was absolutely fantastic. We hired her for day of/month of coordination and she was perfect throughout the whole process. We used all of her recommendations, from photographers to hair and makeup to even the henna artist for our Indian wedding.

Lindsay helped me stay sane during wedding planning. She was not only a sounding board for my frustrations with various elements, but she also offered great advice for any problems I experienced leading up to the wedding. My stresses melted away leading up to the wedding and the day of because I knew Lindsay and her assistant would have everything handled - and I was right! Besides a few hiccups that were out of both of our hands, the wedding went smoothly and I have to thank Lindsay and her team for making the day so enjoyable for us and our guests. I also heavily relied on Lindsay to help with setting up the decor of the wedding and I was not disappointed - every element I had purchased was placed perfectly.

We couldn't have done this without her and her assistant Ashley and can't begin to thank her enough. Lindsay's attention to detail is unmatched, as is her knowledge of putting together such an event.

HIRE LINDSAY! We got married July 2017 and had the most amazing experience working with Lindsay. She took on the challenge of working with a bride/groom that were living on the East Coast and getting married in Lake Tahoe. We had an outdoor/tent wedding where EVERYTHING had to be brought in and Lindsay made this process seamless.Sent on 09/18/2017
I only had two days on the west coast after I got engaged and after meeting several Tahoe wedding planners we easily made the decision to go with Cloud Nine. Lindsay just immediately put us at ease and really listened to the vision we had for the wedding.
Lindsay helped us with ALL aspects of the wedding- the vision, the details, negotiations, timeline, invites, the vows, dogs as ring bearers, cigar bars, everything. She really made our dream into a reality. Not to mention, she truly is a wonderful person.
Bottom line: I do not have a yelp/weddingwire account and never write reviews but felt compelled to write one because of how special she made our wedding.
Valerie · Married on 07/15/2017
Lindsey and Ashley were the absolute best!!!! I hired them for their 'day of' services since we were having a small (60 person) casual wedding in Tahoe. As the day grew near, the amount of assistance I needed became more and more...and they were there every step of the way! I felt the went above & beyond what I hired them for and they were worth every penny & more! On the day of the wedding, Ashley was there from morning to night coordinating every single detail. I'm a little controlling and a bit of an over-planner, so turning over things to someone else is hard for me. But Ashely was completely trustworthy and was as if I had cloned myself....but better and more experiencing in all things wedding! I couldn't have pulled it off with them. Thank you!!!Sent on 10/14/2017
