You won't worry with Wendy
My husband and I worked with Wendy on our wedding from the time we chose our venue to the last minute of the big day. Wendy helped us assemble an all-star team of partners and vendors to turn our vision into reality. We had some pretty unique aesthetic choices that made our wedding a bit different both from the design direction and the fact that we were a non-traditional/gay wedding; Wendy was able to almost immediately come up with possible solutions, get people on the phone and start putting options together.
The weeks leading up to the big day, Wendy was able to pull the strings together of what we'd been working on and put the final touches to make everything feel cohesive and unique. Day of, Wendy helped us navigate the day and with her fabulous crew, orchestrate a seamless day of love and celebration without any worry about scheduling or logistics. If you need help putting together your wedding, if you don't know who to talk to or where to even begin seeing your big day come together; Wendy Lawrence can help you navigate the waters of the wild world of wedding planning and make your big day one that everyone will remember.Sent on 12/17/2018

You need to have her on your team!!!!
I can say that Wendy and her team are a true asset to any event that I am planing at the Sagamore Resort. She is a true professional. If I had it my way she would be working every event that I book. I think that her personality and eye for detail make my clients experience truly perfect. I would recommend her to all of my brides and grooms! She is amazing and will make your wedding day every bit of the dream that it should be!!Sent on 02/01/2020

Excellent Wedding Planner
Wendy was exceptionally valuable through the entire planning process. We came to her relatively late in the game and she was able to help get us back on track. Our wedding turned out more beautiful than we could imagine and it would not have happened without her. I could not recommend her enough!Sent on 02/07/2020

Wendy made our wedding day absolute magic. She has a comforting presence that combined with her love, patience, and kindness for her clients allows those who employ her services to have an extra special experience. Because of Wendy, we shared a day of love that was not only perfectly executed, but also one that will live fresh in our hearts and memories forever!Sent on 12/11/2018

My husband and I had the best experience working with Wendy. From the first time we spoke on the phone she made me feel comfortable and that our wedding day would be in good hands. 3 months before our wedding our original venue fell through. Wendy made the transition from our original venue to the new venue so easy. The day of our wedding went so smoothly. We were actually able to relax and enjoy our entire day knowing that Wendy had everything taken care of! I can't recommend Wendy enough. If you're looking for a planner who is going to make you feel relaxed and at ease for the entire wedding planning experience do not hesitate to hire Wendy!Sent on 11/08/2018

One of the best decisions we made was hiring Wendy! She was responsive, professional and FUN to work with. She handled all of the details on the day of the wedding so we could focus on enjoying it and spending time with our loved ones.Sent on 11/27/2018

Wendy was a lifesaver leading up to the wedding. Being from out of town, we could not have gotten married without her! Countless people commented on how smooth everything was. Especially the transportation to and from the ceremony. My lovely bride and I wholeheartedly recommend her!Sent on 11/12/2018

Amazing to work with!
Working with Wendy was fun and stress free. Her knowledge, attention to detail, humor, listening skills and love for what she does let me know I was in good hands. Never thought I'd hire a wedding planner, but so glad I did. Even more glad it was Wendy! ❤Sent on 11/27/2018

Wendy was absolutely fabulous as a day of wedding coordinator! My mom and I met with Wendy on several occasions. She helped us create the exact vision we wanted. Her attention to detail and experience really allowed us to adjust and incorporate ideas to make my dream wedding come true.Sent on 11/11/2018
On the day of the wedding, Wendy arrived with a big smile, ready to assist and help in any way she could. My bridesmaids, mom, and myself all felt at ease in her company.
Her efficient timeline was perfect, and really kept us organized through the day. Not once did she ever make us feel flustered or rushed.
Also, I want to give a shoutout to Wendy’s assistant Jen for her patience with the groomsmen. She made sure my husband and the groomsmen were on time and ready! Thank you Jen!
Looking back on the day, I don’t think it would have been as seamless as it was without Wendy. My parents, husband and I still talk about how AMAZING Wendy was and how we would recommend a day of wedding coordinator to anyone! My parents have commented that they would not have enjoyed my wedding as much, if it weren’t for Wendy. Hands down, Wendy is the absolute best choice when it comes to a wedding coordinator!!

Wendy was phenomenal. She was incredibly helpful and responsive leading up to the wedding and not only gave her professional advice and opinions, but also listened to what you're vision and ideas were. She has the best personality and attitude and throughout the day of the wedding she felt like more of a part of our family and friends than a vendor we hired. Everyone loved her and she took away all of the stress of the day. She made sure everything went off flawlessly and perfectly. We 100% reccomend her and her team.Sent on 10/17/2017
Gina · Married on 09/16/2017
Wendy was excited to be our month of planner from the minute I contacted her and it showed! She was extremely enthusiastic, responsible, detail oriented, thorough and professional. I am so happy I hired her and had her there for my special day. There were so many vendors along with tiny details to organize. I was terrified I would have to finalize these on the day while also trying to enjoy myself and get ready, but Wendy took charge, took my direction and ran with it. She executed my theme and ideas and everything was perfect. I highly recommend Wendy and her team! She is very personable and present with you in the moment and she doesn't miss a beat. Something that is so great about her is that she is a doer and the minute she sees something that needs to be done or needs attention she is on it and she doesn't really miss those details. If you forgot it, she remembered! My only regret is that I didn't hire her for the full planning process. If I could, I would have and I know she would have made it that much better. If you are looking for a wedding planner or even just a month of planner, Wendy is your woman!Sent on 10/25/2017
Madeline · Married on 09/09/2017
Wendy was such an amazing asset to my wedding planning process - I can't thank her enough! I was all over the place with my planning in the beginning but due to her extensive knowledge of the industry and local connections she was able to point me in the right direction and help me select exactly what I was looking for. The day of coordination couldn't have gone smoother. I had a large bridal party traveling to multiple places for photos which went off without a hitch. She helped steam dresses, took over all coordination between vendors and intercepted questions for me so I could 100% enjoy the day. It was a huge comfort knowing she was right there. I would definitely recommend Wendy to anyone looking for an energetic, experienced and professional person to help them through the wedding planning process. I'm still smiling from such a perfect day, and owe so much of that to Wendy!Sent on 11/14/2017
Sienna · Married on 07/15/2017
When I hired Wendy, I sighed a breath of relief. We used her month of coordination services and just at the moment when I felt the stress of wedding planning creeping up on me, she was there to take over, problem solve, and make our day run perfectly smooth. Everything was beautiful, everything flowed, and she was prepared for every worst case scenario. Wendy is the perfect mix of peppy, fun, want-to-be-her-friend awesomeness, but also has that get-stuff-done attitude and we really appreciated having her as part of our day. Thanks Wendy!Sent on 07/18/2017
Wendy Lawrence Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Sienna - thank you so much for the wonderful review! It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day.

Working with Wendy Lawrence Event Planning was an incredible experience. Wendy managed to take all of the stress out of the experience and delivered an event that I could only describe as absolutely perfect. Wendy is exceptionally creative and has a wonderful eye for style and refined chic. She handled every detail and every aspect of the event from selecting the venue, to picking the invitations, selecting the most perfect florals, handling hotel plans and coordinating the staff at the event; she even planned the brunch the next morning. It was such a pleasure to work with a professional who was able to instantly pick up on the vision and the feel for the event I was imagining and was able to deliver on every aspect. More than anything, Wendy was always available, always happy and positive, nothing was every too big and no worry i had was ever too small. Working with Wendy made planning and throwing our event easy! I would tell anyone looking for an event planner, you can't get any better than Wendy Lawrence Events. Style, class and elegance yet fun and surprisingly unique and creative.....5 stars all the way!Sent on 03/29/2017
Martha · Married on 10/22/2016
Wendy was an absolute DREAM to work with. She was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and a vital part of our wedding planning process. From the first meeting with Wendy, she was able to help us investigate venues, book our venue, and negotiate with the many, many wedding vendors out there. Wendy has great relationships with multiple vendors- she was able to get us price quotes, walk us through the contracts and really advise on what was truly necessary. She was there with us until the day of - which took tons of work (and 13 months of planning!) The weeks leading up to the wedding Wendy was readily available and ready to discuss every detail- I still can't believe how seamless it was to work with her and her team the day of the wedding. Wendy was able to take my dream wedding and turn it into reality. There were no issues day of (that I know of!) and she was able to ensure that the groom and I had the best time. I recommend Wendy to anyone planning a wedding- it really does take a ton of pressure off in terms of putting everything together. Nothing but the highest reviews for Wendy- thank you a million times for helping us put together our dream wedding!Sent on 11/09/2016
Wendy Lawrence Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Martha and Michael - thank you both so very much. Your wedding was nothing short of extraordinary. Not only was a dream to work for you but your families were just the nicest people I've met in a long time. I can only hope to have clients like you both in the future. I miss you guys already and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. XOXO! Wendy

My husband and I were married about 2 months ago, we were on a tight budget and our wedding was very DIY. Early on we realized that it would be helpful to work with a planner day of (I was very on top of things myself but we didn't have the budget for someone to help us the whole way). We hired Wendy and hands down it was one of the areas I would consider money best spent; along with our photographer.Sent on 12/01/2016
Wendy was great throughout the process she was responsive, easy to get along with and worth every penny to have there day of. She rolled up her sleeves and helped me with flowers and table settings and much more! She ran our dress rehearsal, took packages for me as I lived in a different state, set up all our vendors in the room day of, gave final payments, tips etc. She was there all day to see that the day ran smoothly.
We talked a few times over the days and months prior to be on target for the plan, she helped with timelines, details, questions and general problem solving. She followed my lead which if you are doing a DIY wedding is important, because too many hands in the pot can make things harder sometimes.
I can't say enough about her professionalism and also her easy and go with the flow attitude. She was firm when things needed to get done, and I never felt like I couldn't trust her at any point to achieve was was our dream for our wedding day.
There are things that happened day of as they will and Wendy took care of them so that I never knew they existed, she even drove me down the aisle when plans had to shift due to our venue not keeping there word on transport.
You cannot put a value on having someone there to make sure your day goes as planned, so hire her and know you and your soon to be are in good hands. It is worth the money, there are so many things going on the day of your wedding having someone you trust to help you along the way is something I and my husband were grateful for. Thank you Wendy!!!!

I can honestly say I don't know what I would've done without Wendy and Tonya on my wedding day. They were incredibly helpful, attentive, and detail oriented throughout the entire weekend. I come from a family of OCD control freaks so the fact that we were all so pleased and so happy with their service is saying something! Thank you again for making our wedding weekend go off without a hitch!Sent on 10/04/2016

If you are intending to have an event and you want it to be the best, booking anyone else besides Wendy Lawrence would be both foolish and negligent. Wendy's leadership skills and her ability to create and organize a first class event were unparalleled. Everything we asked for was more than wonderful. We can't thank her enough.Sent on 07/06/2016

Wendy is quite possibly the most amazing wedding planner you could possibly hire to put together your wedding. There wasn't one moment where we were worried about how it was going to turn out, especially the day of the wedding. She had every minute coordinated to a tee and literally got on her hands and knees to make sure everything was perfect. We are very lucky to have had Wendy and would recommend her to any couples getting married in Saratoga and beyond. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!Sent on 07/26/2016
