Lauren is the most amazing wedding coordinator ever! The wedding was perfect and it was all because of Lauren. She's responsive, professional, detail oriented and really went above and beyond to help make the month of the wedding, and the wedding day and reception, exceptional! You will find nobody better than Just Lovely and Lauren!
Our wedding was at Hyde Park Lodge in Santa Fe. Other wedding planners added in fees to go that far from ABQ, or won't go there at all. Lauren did not hesitate to take on a rustic mountain wedding. She listened closely to our ideas for the wedding. If she knew something would not work out or fit into the budget, she told us and suggested alternatives. Her advise was invaluable! We had the wedding of our dreams!!! Thank you Lauren. You're the best!
Lauren from Just Lovely Wedding & Event Planning was absolutely AMAZING. I can not say enough wonderful things about her. From the day we met with her she helped us tremendously. She is quick to respond and is willing to help with every aspect of the wedding planning process. She provided us advice when needed and was open to all our ideas. She was willing to work with all of our ideas. Our wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have imagined it without Lauren. Lauren and her assistant set up all the decorations, which looked beautiful, and she made sure the entire day ran smoothly from getting ready in the morning to the grand exit. I was not stressed because I felt so comfortable with Lauren running things. I was able to focus on getting married and having a great night. I highly recommend hiring Lauren!
I cannot express enough how incredible Lauren is! I am a former wedding planner and was extremely nervous planning an out of state wedding and not knowing who I would be able to trust to help me. The first phone chat with Lauren and I was sold. This girl was on IT. She asked every right question, is an excellent listener and LOVES what she does! You cannot ask for anything better in a Wedding Planner. She is hard working, when she says she will call you, she does. She is organized, professional, and knows what she is doing. She had all of our vendors ready to go and everything was set come wedding day. Any little thing that came up, Lauren took care of it without batting an eye. I had high standards when choosing a planner and I cannot reiterate enough how great Lauren is at her job. She steps in and offers advice at all of the right moments. She hears your vision and works with you to make it a reality. Its very rare to find a wedding planner who takes ownership of the wedding like it was their own and that is all a bride could ask for. Lauren was an absolute joy to work with and she genuinely loves what she is doing. I cannot say enough great things about her - the girl crush is real!
Lauren was such a pleasure to work with. When we first met I knew we would be a great fit and work very well together. I was very involved in the planning of my wedding, but I needed the extra help and I am so glad I hired Lauren for that job. She was very thorough, extremely organized, very responsive, and her quality of service was excellent. Thank you Lauren for all of your help in making our day PERFECT!
Lauren and Kristen stepped in about a month before our wedding and saved my sanity! They were professional, pleasant, and amazingly organized. They dealt with some challenging vendor issues and always remained courteous. We were so impressed that we also hired them to help coordinate the rehearsal dinner and farewell brunch. I would recommend their services without hesitation to anyone with an upcoming event!
I chose the partial planning option because I live states away and have a hard time with organization. Laurin was perfect for these areas. Our monthly conversations and her clear to-do lists helped me picture/organize my ideas and get them pulled together. She provided great options and suggestions of venders. It was always so much fun to talk to her as she seemed genuinely excited about the wedding and my ideas. She was always very friendly and cheerful. The day of, everything was so organized and ran as smoothly as you could hope for. I was able to have fun with my bridesmaids getting ready and not needing to worry about the coordination of anything. She was also great with keeping the ladies calm and steering way from nervousness.
Lauren from Just Lovely Wedding & Event Planning was beyond AMAZING! Not only was she professional but she was a joy to be around. She always put our minds at ease and made us feel so much better when the pressure was on, especially because we were planning our wedding from out of state. Lauren had a great list of recommended vendors and always had great ideas and suggestions. She also did a great job decorating and she came through and helped decorate our wedding cake:) The day of our wedding she made sure everything ran as smooth as can be, we had nothing to worry about. We are very grateful for the work and effort Lauren put into making our day extra special. Thank you Lauren!
Book Lauren! She was extremely helpful and useful throughout the entire month of the wedding. We would have been dead in the water without her. She helped tremendously with things that we hadn't even thought of when trying to plan!
The peace of mind and support that Kristin and Lauren provided during the month prior and day of my October wedding was completely invaluable! They were amazing to work with, right in my price range, flexible, and added so much value through their expertise, enthusiasm and support. Our wedding in Albuquerque was a bit of a "destination wedding" for our families who traveled long and far to celebrate with us; we received countless compliments on how seamlessly the day went, and how beautifully done the wedding was. Thank you for making the day LOVELY and memorable for everyone involved! Definitely recommended :D
Lauren Mestas with just Lovely Wedding & Events was the reason our wedding was able to happen. I am not exaggerating. We hired Lauren for the month of planning services, she was wonderful from the first moment we met her. She is very friendly and it felt like we were old friends almost instantly. The reason I say she is the reason we were able to have our wedding is that the night before our wedding my husband and his family suffered a tragic loss and we were forced to cancel at the last minute, not only did Lauren make all those calls for us so we could focus on our families but she also went above and beyond our contract and helped us reschedule every one of our vendors and then made the day of our wedding absolutely amazing. We truly were afraid that we have to postpone our wedding indefinitely while we saved enough to re-book everyone, Lauren and all our Vendors were very understanding and extended our contracts out to the new date we were able to book. There aren’t enough words to express how grateful we are to all our vendors but especially Lauren for organizing it all and making it so on the day of we had no stress and a wonderful time. Thank you Lauren!!
Lauren with Just Lovely was my lifesaver! She went above and beyond to help me in every aspect of my wedding planning. I hired her as my Month-of-Coordinator and she did not disappoint. She was very helpful with my last minute decisions, incredible with the logistics of the event itself, and very thoughtful with all the emotions and family needs throughout the weekend. She had great insight and suggestions on things I was unsure about and was able to work with all my requests and within the Rustic vision of my Wedding. Her contacts and referrals were great, and she was truly my advocate with each of my vendors!! I couldn't have gotten through some moments with out here!!!! Thanks to Lauren for making everything go so smoothly and for the incredible amount of help and support!!!!
We hired Lauren Mestas to assist us for the final month and day of details for our wedding. Wow, that was the best decision we could have made. It was a pleasure to work with her and it took so much stress off our minds. Lauren was encredibly thorough with all our details and did a great job communicating with our additional vendors. Her communication with us was great. The price for such a competent planner was a fabulous value. Once we found her we wished we would have hired her for the entire 6 months before our wedding.
When I was planning my wedding, I contemplated on having a day of coordinator. I thought it was not necessary. However, after thinking about it, I decided to look for one. The reason why I decided to hire a day of coordinator was because I wanted our day to be close to perfect. There are a lot of expenses that go into a wedding, and the last thing I needed was to deal with the florist or making sure the cake was delivered on time. It is important for your day to go as smoothly as it can. A lot of time and money go into your wedding day. That is exactly why we hired Just lovely to coordinate our wedding. Lauren and Krissy helped coordinate. My husband, family, friends, and I were very pleased with them. We loved them! Both responded to my every needs and understood what to do the day of the wedding. My wedding day was honestly stress free and I could have not asked for nothing more. There package was reasonable priced. It was worth the investment. I have gone to weddings where they have hired friends to coordinate. Please take my advice and do not do it. That wedding was disorganized and it was frustrating for the family. Leave it to Just Lovely Weddings to coordinate your wedding! They truly did a spectacular job. Thank you again, Lauren and Krissy :)
Book Lauren! Lauren was integral to our outdoor backyard wedding. We got married at my parents' house in Corrales, which was wonderful because we had a blank slate and could hire whichever vendors we desired. However, a backyard at-home wedding also meant a ton of moving parts and vendors. Lauren was a champion with it all. She was wonderfully organized and professional. She also predicted our needs before we even realized we needed something.
At our first meeting, Lauren met us at a hotel to show us an option for out-of-town guests. She had the hotel show us the rooms and amenities. I was blown away by her ability to know exactly what we wanted to see. From that point on, Lauren was a joy to work with. She took our crazy ideas, celebrated them, and then executed them to a T. Our wedding day was perfect. Every single guest told me it was the best night of their lives. And Lauren was the person who executed it. She is worth her weight in gold.
Hiring Lauren Mestas as our wedding planner was the best decision we made during our wedding planning. She was amazing! Once she came on board the month of the wedding it felt like we could finally take a breath. She was efficient and got everything done perfectly but she was caring and kind hearted which gave me the feeling that I had another bridesmaid. The main reason we looked into hiring a planner was because we wanted to take the stress off us the month leading to the wedding, but more importantly allow our family and wedding party to enjoy themselves rather than do the work it takes to set everything up. And believe me, it is more work than you think. Lauren was there with endless advice and expertise and was always answering my calls and emails immediately. Lauren also arranged all of our meetings with vendors and was excessively helpful at the dinner rehearsal as well. I couldn't imagine that my wedding would be what it was without her. If you are on the fence about hiring a planner, do it. It is so worth it, and you will not believe what a relief it is to have her there.
Lauren was genuinely happy for us and it showed. She will make your wedding special and unique and really listens to the bride and made me feel like I was in control.
Lauren did an AMAZING job!!!!!
Thank you so much, Laura! It was a pleasure to be a part of yours & Josh's wedding day. We wish you and your family so much love & happiness!
Lauren was amazing, she made sure our day was perfect inspite of some challenges.
Thank you, Angel! It was an honor working with you & your family, and being a part of your wedding day. We wish you & Scott all the best!
Lauren is simply amazing!! Everything I could ever ask for was done by her! She helped so much and I am forever grateful! I highly recommend her! She payed attention to all my details and incorporated them. She is perfect for helping you for your occasion!
Lauren is fabulous to work with!!! She is so helpful! I had absolutely no stress during my wedding. She made sure everything was ready, followed up with my vendors, gave me awesome suggestions, checked on me frequently, and just made me feel so comfortable about my whole day! She is so organized and so sweet. I would recommend her to anyone!
Lauren was so WONDERFUL, she really saved me when I had no other options, she was so helpful with everything, and she was on top of every detail. Lauren makes you feel so comfortable that it felt like a friend was helping me plan this wedding. If I had to do it all over she would be the one I would run to again!
Lauren did a great job helping us with all the details for our wedding. We used Just Lovely Weddings as part of our plan with the Downtown Historic B and B and it turned out great! We had some hiccups in the beginning with another planner but as soon as we got Lauren, she was absolutely amazing! She was incredibly sweet and very flexible, especially since we made several decisions for the wedding at the last minute. She checked in with us often to make sure everything was on track and to keep us updated. On the day of the wedding, she made it incredibly stress-free! I did not even think of logistics. She was absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend her for your future wedding planning needs!
Everything that Just Lovely did for our wedding...turned out Just Lovely! Lauren was very responsive and helpful with ideas and concepts. At the end of the day, I was beyond relieved that I selected to use a day of coordinator. Looking back on the decorations, I wish I had more time to get my ideas organized and conveyed direction more specifically. Overall, I would recommend Just Lovely to ANYONE needing organization for your big day!
Lauren coordinated our wedding at the Downtown Historic Bed & Breakfast. She was amazing! She was upbeat, responsive, knowledgeable, and positive during the planning process. She made sure all of our vendors knew when and where to arrive. Most of all, she set up a wedding that was more beautiful than we could have imagined, and she worked tirelessly throughout the wedding day to make sure everything was running seamlessly. I would absolutely recommend her services!
Melanie & Lauren are the BEST! They recently did the day of coordinating for my son's wedding. Everything was well taken care of and all the details of the wedding were PERFECTLY set up by them. My son and his wife said they never felt like they were needing to worry about anything but enjoying their wedding and being with their guests. For me it was great to just enjoy the day and not have to worry about checking in with vendors or other details. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Using their services was one of the best decisions we made in help
