My husband Dan and I hired Lori as a day-of planner for our completely DIY backyard wedding. Although we didn’t originally plan on hiring a day-of coordinator, it was probably the best decision we made throughout the entire planning process. With any wedding, but especially at DIY wedding, there are so many little details that have to be organized – and while I’m a super-organized person and enjoyed planning – on the day of the wedding I just wanted to be a bride. Lori handled everything – perfectly. She met with me in person at our venue, and on the phone multiple times before the wedding and went over every detail of the day, as many times as I needed her to in order feel comfortable (which was a lot, sorry Lori!). She gave me great advice during the planning process, and she showed up early the morning of the wedding and handled all of the vendors. By the time I arrived everything was perfect and all I had to do was walk down the aisle. I’m sure there were things that went wrong – but I never found out about them. Lori checked in on my husband and I throughout the day – but was never overbearing. It seemed like every time I needed something she was right there – but other than that I didn’t even see her. Lori’s calm, warm, and extremely organized and detail-oriented personality makes her the perfect wedding planner. She feels more like a family friend than a vendor. I am so thankful for her taking all the pressure off on our wedding day and I would hire her again for any event in an instant. Thank you so much Lori!!! -- Hannah and Dan
