I miss our Friday calls! We had such a special day and so much of it was because you were there behind the scenes waving your magic wand! We've been meaning to get you a "thank you" surprise (expect one soon!), but haven't come up with just the right way to thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives (it really was!) We had a great honeymoon, but nothing could ever top the wedding itself. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thanks again and keep in touch!

I can't believe it has already been two weeks since our wedding - time has flown! I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for your part in making sure that things went as smoothly as possible. You were amazing, and from start to finish everything was handled with professionalism and grace. I would be happy to be a reference for you should you need one, and please know that I will be recommending your services to any bride I encounter who is looking for some support.

"I don't even know where to start! I feel so blessed to have had Laura as our planner. I seriously could not have done it without her. Our wedding was the best day of my life and I have Laura to thank for that (and my husband, of course). With all of the wedding blogs and magazines out there, it's easy to get caught up in the madness and forget about the things that really matter. Laura was there to be my voice of reason and organize EVERYTHING so it didn't feel so overwhelming. We actually had a blast during the planning process! I apologize in advance for the rambling; I just have so many good things to say. Plus it's fun to re-live the experience :).
What I really appreciated about Laura is she made the wedding completely about us. Not just a cookie cutter wedding where you say what colors you want and everything ends up looking like every other wedding. She REALLY got to know us and was completely open to any strange ideas we had and ran with them. She asked us about the things we love and things that are specific to our relationship and brought them to life. I can't tell you how many guests are still commenting about how the wedding really felt like us and how the little details she incorporated made it so special and this is EXACTLY what I wanted. One of the first things she asked me during our first planning meeting was 'what do you want your guests to say after attending your wedding?' and my answer was 'I want them to say it was SO them.' And it was!!
On top of the amazing work she does, she is such a pleasure to be around. She really makes you feel like you are her only client. Not once did she get annoyed with my stupid questions or shut down any of my ideas. She is always so sweet and positive with the right amount of assertiveness which definitely helped on the wedding weekend! We did not have a huge budget, so our wonderful (and large) wedding party was there to help out with everything as we didn't hire a huge staff. Laura did a great job at delegating the many projects to everyone, which you can imagine would be a difficult task when half the wedding party is drunk and would probably rather be somewhere else. But the way she handled the situation was admirable and we all ended up having a really nice time and everything was completed flawlessly.
Bottom line is that hiring Laura was probably one of the smartest decisions I made for the wedding. I would suggest to everyone to get a planner (aka Laura) no matter how good you think you are at planning parties. There is a lot more to it than you think and the last thing you want to be doing on your wedding day is running around chasing vendors to make sure they are following the timeline you would have spent days creating.
THANK YOU LAURA!!! You are truly a saint."

"I don't even know where to begin - Laura is simply the best! I honestly don't think we could have done it without her and if we had, it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun. When we started our planning process we were all over the place with our ideas. Laura really listened to what we were saying we wanted and helped us figure out how to make it a reality. She found us the best vendors and negotiated tirelessly on our behalf and we ended up with a great team of people who all worked together to make our wedding so fun and special. She also has a great eye and really helped us figure out what would look good and when we needed to edit ourselves! The night of everything was managed so seamlessly - I never had to worry about anything, everything ran like clockwork, and all of our guests had the best time. It was so nice to be able to put it all in her competent hands so that we could really relax and enjoy our wedding. So many different people described the evening to me afterwards as magical and I had so many people tell me it was the best wedding ever.
But maybe most importantly, Laura was just a joy to work with all the way through. I truly enjoyed the process because of her and she became a true friend. After the wedding I had Laura withdrawals because I was missing our near daily pre-wedding phone calls! The whole experience was truly wonderful and I sincerely cannot recommend her or her team enough!"

"Laura was such an incredible asset to us during the planning and day of our wedding. She was a calm, steady voice throughout, and always had stylish and smart ideas that made every detail come to life and our vision a reality. We instantly connected the first time we met, and could tell right away that she cared about every decision with the same care and consideration that we did.
She also helped us find really talented partners, from musicians to florists to photographers and coordinators. In the end, Laura's taste and ability to understand the intricacies that make a wedding special contributed to making our day incredibly special to us and all of our family and friends. I can't tell you how many people came up to us and said it was the best wedding they've ever attended, and Laura had a lot to do with that.
Consider yourself lucky to have her planning any event."

"Laura embraced our vision immediately, and only made it better. She was creative, detailed, always calm, a wonderful listener, solutions-based, and an over achiever in the greatest sense. She went, in our eyes, over and beyond – spending weekends and late work nights on the phone, on email, always responsive, and was either decisive or gave me the confidence to make good decisions.
We had a very non-traditional wedding, but many of our guests told us it was the most stunning ceremony, most fun evening, and most tasteful wedding they had ever been part of. We will talk about that day for years to come, and are grateful to Laura for helping us to pull-off what became a magical and memorable event."

"Working with Laura in planning our engagement party was a pure joy. She was not only completely organized, but also incredibly creative in her thought process. I think the combination of these two qualities is exactly what makes a great event planner and can be a hard combination to find in many people.
Laura was very interested in learning about us as a couple and listening to all of our (sometimes crazy) ideas. She was able to take all of these concepts and organize them into the ideal event that was purely us on our best day.
It was so wonderful to not have to worry about any aspect of our party because I knew that Laura would handle it with grace and efficiency. From coordinating vendors, to decorating the space, to the timing of food and drinks - everything went off perfectly.
Every single guest had a wonderful time and still talks about how it was the best party they have ever attended - we owe all of this to Laura's planning and exquisite taste in all she does. We will remember that night for the rest of our lives and be forever thankful for Laura's talent in planning our event."
