As soon as my daughter, Kendall, became engaged we began researching wedding coordinators on The Knot. Kendall and I knew that we wanted to be very hands on during the planning, so were a little skeptical about hiring a wedding coordinator. We ...
didn't want someone who would just take over and not listen to Kendall and Josh's dreams for their wedding. With that being said, we also knew that planning a wedding for 300 would be a big, overwhelming task, and understood that having someone there to guide us along the way would be helpful. Let me tell you...we hit the jackpot when hiring Lisa and My Event Angels. It was the best decision!
Our initial meeting with Lisa went great. She was professional, organized and fun. We did the Angel Plus package with 6 meetings and Day of Coordination. Every meeting we had with Lisa was helpful as she broke down tasks to do each month so it was not overwhelming. She was also great with Josh and my husband when they could attend a meeting. Kendall and I loved how we were able to do a lot of the legwork on our own and spend quality time as mother and daughter while Lisa was there to keep us on task, on budget and encouraged. We worked with Lisa and her staff for a year, and by the end we truly were like family. Kendall and I will never forget one of our final meetings with Lisa. We were going over wedding day details and discussing who would walk members of the family down the aisle. Kendall's grandfather had just been put on hospice. Kendall was fighting back tears as she told Lisa this development and Lisa immediately picked up on Kendall's sadness that her grandfather probably wouldn't be there on her wedding day. Lisa stopped our meeting and asked if she could pray for us. She took our hands, and right there in her office, prayed over us. By the end, we were both crying, but felt so much peace. That's what Lisa is BEST at. She gives you the confidence that things are taken care of so you can be calm and at peace. What bride and groom (and Mother of the Bride haha) wouldn't want that on their wedding day??!!
The day of the wedding went like clockwork because of Lisa and her team. They arrived at 10 am and went to work. I have literally never seen any group work so hard. They took care of every detail and the entire day was such a blast! They were helpful and kind to all of our family, and everyone commented on how wonderful Lisa and her staff were. On the day of the wedding, Lisa was all about Kendall and Josh. As I write this, I tear up thinking about how much she cared for them on their big day. It was evident that it was her mission to serve Kendall and Josh. She was so sweet, loving and calm. Lisa went above and beyond in every way! I have NO idea what I would have done if I, as the Mother of the Bride, did not have Lisa that day. I would have been a crazy woman, and no fun at all. Instead, I was able to truly take it all in and enjoy the best day of my daughter's life with her. Kendall's wedding was perfect in every way, and Lisa had a big part in making it that way. I would recommend her 100%. We have a younger daughter and when her time comes to plan a wedding, we will not hesitate to hire Lisa and My event Angels again. Thank you for everything!
