  • 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

  • Dear Lisa,

    I had intended to write you a “real” thank you note after the wedding but with seeing guests and family off, assembling and dispersing all of the wedding paraphernalia, etc. time got away from me. So I’m back to email, our favored form of communication in the last year.

    The testimonial was not difficult to write because, really, I could not say enough good things. The girls were deliriously happy with their wedding—as were Winston and I and Lucy’s parents, the Clarks. Virtually all of our family and friends—from England, east coast, mid-west, even southern California—were wowed by the O’Donnell House. And you: you are truly the best—organized, efficient, responsive, good humored, and SUCH a hard worker. All qualities that are so rare in combination. I enjoyed working with you so much and already miss you.

    I wish you all the best.

  • Good Morning Peggy!We cannot thank you enough for all your help and hard work to make Linds dream wedding come true!  It was everything we ever imagined it to be and more, despite the heat!  It all would not have happened without you.  She sent me your email earlier this week, but she had it wrong, this is why I am an entire week behind.  Could you please send me your physical address?  You are a wonderful person and we are so happy we came across your expertise.  Have a great day!

  • Laurie,

    Thank you so much for all your work for Katie & Bryan’s wedding weekend. I cannot believe all the hard work and the amount of time that you put in. Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled with everything. You exceeded all expectations! The attention to detail, the constant communication and your very calm disposition made it all so very easy for me. Thank you for making so many memories for our family. We appreciate you and are very thankful we found you!

    All my very best,

    Devin (MOB)

  • I just wanted to let you know how incredibly wonderful our event was last night at the O’Donnell House.  Everything was executed just perfectly, along with all of our guests had a truly fantastic time.  Lisa did a fantastic job and the event could not possibly have been any better.  We are so pleased and grateful to you, your staff and Tracy C. for making this special milestone happen and be so memorable for us.

  • 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,

  • 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!!!!!

  • 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.
