  • A week ago today we were anxiously anticipating the joy of Tasha and Sammy’s wedding. We had high expectations and with your help, they were exceeded. You were with us every step of the way from the moment we selected you as our wedding planner until the last box was packed into our cars at the end of the wedding. This was the first wedding that we planned and there were a lot of things that we did not know, with your help every step was seamless and without stress…well except for the endless spreadsheets…All of the vendors you recommended were outstanding, professional and worked as a team with you.Tasha and Sammy’s wedding was the best day of all of our lives. You were a major part of our joy and we will be forever grateful.We stand ready to provide a reference for you at anytime.

  • Lisa,

    Thank you so much for everything you did to make mine and Bejan’s wedding day so perfect. You were incredibly helpful and supportive from the day we booked the venue to the big day on September 23rd. The day would not have been the same if it weren’t you! Myself and so many other brides will be eternally grateful towards you 🙂

    Thank you again,

    Megan & Bejan

  • I just got back online which is why you haven’t heard from me since I got to LV. You know, you are really excellent. You continue to amaze both of us. Your calm harmony and exceptional interpersonal skills, your network of universally admiring vendors and clients (very well deserved as far as we can tell), your professionalism, knowledge, experience, your incredible generosity, and finally your loving nature, are all so exceptional, Laurie. We are wondering what we did to deserve to have you on our team or to even know you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your impact has been essential. Thank you!!!!!

  • Although I am literally buried alive, I wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much you meant to ALL of us. Every member of my family told me how remarkable you are… I know I told you throughout the process, but I would like to say once again that you are a true professional and EXCELLENT at what you do. You came along and saved the day for me. I consider you a good friend as well. See you in December for a drink!

  • Thank you for being there to share, and be such an integral part of our special day and family. Peggy and I enjoyed our wedding day more than we could have ever imagined and your presence only added to the color and joy of the festivities.

    Thank you for being there for us both and for your love and support.

  • Hey Girlfriend,I cannot thank you enough for an absolutely perfect wedding day.  I enjoyed every minute of it, as well as the journey you and I shared putting it together.  It was everything I had hoped for, and more. I’ve had people tell me it was the best wedding they had ever been to.  And I heard that people at the high school reunion down below at the O’Donnell Golf Club that night wanted to come up and party with us when they heard our band.  So many people have asked me about New Sensations — they were fantastic! Jack and I keep talking about how everything  was amazing! You and your staff did a terrific job. You made it seem seamless, but I know you worked hard. You wowed us and the crowd! Thanks so much for making my fairy tale wedding come true!

  • Laurie (and your staff!),

    I know this card is very delayed but we really want you to know how thankful we are for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. You were great to work with and made our lives very easy. We also thought this card was very appropriate to remind you of the world’s biggest donut board! Thank you again, and we hope to see you at STR when we come back every year for our anniversary!

    Love,

    Casey & Cody

  • As you can see from the emails that I have copied you on, I have taken a few moments to thank people who played a role in making Devin and Tim’s wedding pretty darn perfect. Although I am emailing you last, you are the main reason why we feel their wedding was everything we could have imagined. Thank you Laurie! You helped us settle on the best possible venue; you coordinated countless details for us; you gently pushed us to get things done; and, you worked with us through a crisis that threatened to derail the entire wedding. You did all of this with style and grace. We could not have asked for a more professional event planner. Your patience, expertise, availability and warmth meant a great deal to us. You were the perfect consultant, mentor, crisis manager and friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You were wonderful to work with and we credit you with making our daughter’s wedding an memory that we will forever treasure.
