  • Laurie,

    You are the wedding planning angel/goddess extraordinaire! How lucky are we to have found you?! I honestly do not think we would have been able to pull of many of our plans so seamlessly without your help, your love, and your care. I mean that.

    We are blessed to have worked with you on our wedding. To be 100% honest, you made planning fun & you allowed me to live out my bridal dreams with enthusiasm! Thank you for that.

    When I first met you, I was drawn to your energy. And after several months of working together, I am still amazed at your level of dedication +  PASSION for making magical things happen. Laurie, I mean it when I say that I hope this isn’t the last time we see each other. You are so special + we love you very much!

  • Dear Lisa,

    Words can’t express how grateful we are to have you through the hectic wedding planning and day process.  The pre-planning and actual day was flawless.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping us to make such sweet memories.  Enjoy this small gift of gratitude.

  • The Hall and Pereira families want to thank all of you so much for helping us put on as many of our friends said “the wedding of the century”! Everything was wonderful and beautifully executed. We are still having people calling and telling us that this was the best wedding ever. The food was delicious, service was outstanding, the most beautiful of venues and so many personal touches. Although we were sorry that Laurie was unable to be with us on the wedding day,  we couldn’t have been more fortunate than to have Lisa take over. Lisa really earned her pay, she and Chris worked so hard especially cleaning up at the end of the very long day.  Lisa was just great to work with, keeping her cool and her sense of humor throughout the day.  Everything went smoothly or at least all the guests thought so and they never knew we were “sweating” it at times!!!   Thanks again for making Shannon and Raphael’s wedding day a dream come true.

  • Lisa, thank you. Saturday was absolutely perfect. We had the best time and couldn’t have pulled it off without you. Our sincerest gratitude to you and the events dept team. So much love, so much fun!! – Katharine

    You really made the day (and those leading up to it) go seamlessly. Can’t thank you enough! -Jack

    Katharine & Jack- March 2019
  • When I think back on my wedding a few weeks ago, I have no idea how I would have gotten through the last few months and most importantly, the day of my wedding, without Lisa at the Events Department. She took care of everything that I asked, even things that were probably  outside of her role. She is an absolute pro at what she does. She was loving and kind to me and strict with vendors which is a perfect mix. I will forever remember Lisa and her team for letting me relax on my wedding day and while letting me enjoy every moment.

  • I just wanted to thank you again for the most amazing wedding in the history of weddings – I was absolutely blown away and could not have been happier with how everything went. You are a miracle worker! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

  • Lisa,

    Thank you so much for helping us pull off such a fabulous wedding day, we couldn’t have done this without you! It was so much fun working with you throughout this process. I was constantly impressed by your attention to detail, and how on top of everything you were. The day was such a whirlwind, and not once did I have to worry about how anything was going. It was all smooth sailing, thanks to you. Hope you had fun, we had a magical time.

    Love,

    Tim & Renee
