Mindy was invaluable to our wedding and the best decision we made to ensure our wedding was a total success!
We booked Mindy for month of coordination but she was there for us through everything and and went so far above and beyond for us in ...
so many ways -- she was there for us through a postponement due to the pandemic, venue hiccups, vendor recommendations, decor choices, and so much more.
Mindy was interwoven throughout every single part of our wedding. She created an impeccable day-of-timeline and shared it with all of our vendors, she read through and had a pulse on all of our vendor contracts, she ran our rehearsal, she didn't blink twice at any last minute changes to our wedding, she shared her wedding decor inventory with us which helped a ton with our budget, she allowed us to ship other decor directly to her which was a huge relief as we were planning our wedding from out of state, she connected us with an incredible videographer who jumped at the opportunity to do another wedding with Mindy, and most importantly she was our biggest confidant and advocate.
She truly took away as much of the stress and anxiety from the wedding planning process that she could for us, which was a huge endeavor given my Type A personality! This alone was the biggest gift.
She stepped in wherever she could to make sure our wedding was the one of our dreams and delivered on that beyond our wildest expectations.
Vendors LOVE working with Mindy. She has an incredible reputation, a loyal client and vendor base, and the love she has for her job truly shines through. She loves weddings, and she approaches them with real joy and emotion while also being incredibly professional and organized.
She knows what works and what doesn't. Everyone from guests, to parents, to vendors loved her. She was always trying to think of things to do to make the wedding easier for us, from planning months in advance to day-of changes. She did everything big and small, getting us copious amounts of water as we took wedding portraits on our very hot wedding day!
I could go on and on on and on. She feels like a close friend to us now and we are forever grateful for everything she did for us. You need Mindy at your wedding!

ion for us. She was understanding, patient, knowledgeable, competent, organized, realistic, and dependable. She went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect and a dream come true. Her suggestions were always on point, and she knows how to manage all of the different personalities and priorities that can make planning a wedding such a challenge.
Mindy is someone whom you can trust and whom you can depend on, and she will take care of all the stress and worry so that you can just enjoy!
She is genuinely invested in her couples and making sure that you have the best day ever. Our wedding with Mindy blew away our expectations. We would recommend her to anyone!

Hiring Mindy as our month-of-coordinator was by far and away the best decision my husband and I made in our wedding planning process. The plan we had in mind for our ceremony and reception was extremely complicated and there is a 0% chance we c...
ould have pulled it off without Mindy's coordination and advice at every turn. Mindy knows the wedding industry in NH like the back of her hand and could not have guided us more expertly (and kindly) throughout the entire planning process. She introduced us to vendors and helped us navigate the various timelines, contracts and weird quirks that come from throwing a wedding in the woods and on a lake.
Leading up to the wedding, she worked with me for hours and hours and hours on what might have been the most complicated day-of-timeline in wedding history, and was available any time of the day by email, text, or conference call for questions, advice or venting sessions. She helped us tackle last minute planning emergencies and brainstorm and collect so many of the day-of-details items that all ended up working together so perfectly. The day of, she flawlessly coordinated with all of our transportation vendors (boats, buses, trolleys, etc.) to somehow keep everything running according to our plan which had left virtually no wiggle room. Everything ran smoothly, despite the fact that the weather didn't fully cooperate and at my insistence we'd stuck with our Plan A. As if she hadn't already gone above and beyond, Mindy also so generously created the most beautiful signature cocktail display as a surprise gift to us at the wedding.
This review is well overdue, but I can't sing Mindy's praises enough. We couldn't have planned our wedding without her help and because of her it was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. Thank you again Mindy!!!

After all the excitement of our engagement, the reality hit that we needed to start planning our wedding. We knew we wanted to get married at my parents’ barn, but had no clue how to make that happen. Hiring Mindy was one of the best decisions ...
we made. She was with us throughout the entire process and made our dream wedding weekend a reality. It was clear from the beginning that she was very knowledgeable about the process and familiar with all the local vendors. Mindy definitely went well beyond the scope of our contract and we are extremely appreciative. We highly recommend Mindy and her staff to help you plan your wedding.

Mindy was a pleasure to work with. After my first email with Mindy, I knew I wanted to have her as my wedding planner. She was prompt in responding to every single email I sent. Mindy was great to work with throughout the entire process and was...
a great help in finding vendors within my budget and making suggestions on ways to keep the more expensive items within my budget. From the time she looked at my Pinterest wedding board she seemed to know exactly how we wanted our wedding to look and feel and helped turn that into reality. She and her staff kept our day running on time and smoothly and thought of just about everything. Weddings are a lot of work, and Mindy and her staff made it so much easier every step of the way.

Our wedding would not have been what it was without Mindy and Private Weddings & Events. Our venue was entirely DIY so we contracted the ‘Month of coordination’ & ‘day of coordination’ services.
Her planning knowledge, resourcefulness & design...
skills took our budget & helped us create something that looked like we spent 3x what we did. I (the bride) am a self-proclaimed project queen, but there were questions to ask vendors, tips, & wedding tricks that only someone with Mindy’s experience knows.
Month of Coordination Planning: Mindy was so easy to work with. Prompt replies & consistent follow up helped me to stay on track throughout. She is so easy to communicate with (phone/email/ text) & always approached my ideas with enthusiasm or kind suggestions. She truly embraced our vision and amplified it into what looked like a wedding editorial.
Day-Of: Mindy & her assistant Ashley are basically magic wedding gurus orchestrating your day. I can’t truly express the value of having them there. From answering questions, directing vendors, directing guests, keeping us on schedule (the list goes on) and all in a way that makes you feel like you’ve known them forever.
If you have a DIY venue or want to guarantee that your wedding day will be flawless, I cannot assure you enough that hiring Mindy & Private Weddings & Events will be the smartest choice you make. My family & I recommend her with the highest esteem.

Mindy was the best decision I've ever made! She was the reason why my wedding day and the whole process weren't stressful at all. Traditionally, I am not good at dealing with pressure, stress, and decision making; but because of her, I actually...
enjoyed planning the wedding. She has everything a bride wishes for in a planner. She is prompt, sharp, experienced, thorough, organized, artistically talented and detail oriented.
Throughout the process, she effectively walked us through all of the standard wedding to-dos, providing a payment schedule, wedding itinerary and even leading communication with vendors to ensure all services were delivered on time. She was a pleasure to work with, and because of her experience and artistic vision, she suggested many things we would have never thought of. No matter where we were in the planning process, she always valued our opinion.
On the wedding day, her role shined even more. There was a storm forecast on the day of our outdoor wedding, but she had prepared multiple back up plans. Even on the morning of our ceremony, she eased my nerves by showing me the forecast video that showed the rain would be temporary and assured me that rain or shine, the ceremony will go well. Even before the rain started, she made sure our vendors setup a tent if the rain didn't stop. And, when it did, she had her team wipe the rain off all the chairs that were set up outside of the tent! Because of all this, I was able to be calm and peaceful while I was getting ready, even with an extreme thunder storm hours before our ceremony.
Along with her ability to maintain calm and collected in the midst of uncertainty, her artistic vision and talent were exceptional and helped me bring my wedding vision to life! After a quick discussion around my Pinterest pictures, she knew exactly what I wanted. Because of her intuitive design ability, I was able to trust her suggestions.
When I first stepped into the venue before the ceremony, I saw decor and a setting that were far beyond my expectations. I could see how much effort and care that she invested to make my dreams come true, and I couldn't hold back my tears. Mindy and Mary from Lotus Flowers were the perfect pair to make my vision a reality! She took care of every little detail. It was stunning and breathtaking.
At the end of our day, everything about that day flowed perfectly, and her itinerary was executed to perfection. My engaged friends were asking how we pulled off this perfect wedding. I said, it was the our planner Mindy. Guests asked if wedding planning was a lot of work, if it was stressful. I was able to say: 'Not at all, the planning was fun and enjoyable because of Mindy!!She made the entire process so easy and stress-free!!'
I can't say thank you enough Mindy, you are truly professional and amazing person and planner. You were there to take all the pressure and stress off my shoulders and help me make the right decisions on endless things we had to decide. You made my dream come true and were there for me at all times! Anyone who is engaged, I highly recommend Mindy without a shadow of a doubt!

I cannot say enough about Mindy, she helped me through the entire wedding planning process. She was a dream to work with. Throughout the process, she offered a ton of great suggestions but always left the decision up to me. She would send multi...
ple vendor quotes and would also call to explain everything, once I made the decision, she would take it from there. A vendor even tried to over charge me at the last min and she took care of it, I didn’t even need to be involved. She is extremely organized and on top of every aspect of the wedding. She kept me organized, sending me reminders for payments and itineraries for the day of. She is an amazing designer as well, I showed her an inspiration picture and she made it all come to life. She arranged my flowers for the entire wedding and it was stunning, everything I wanted but better. Best part is she helped me stay in budget, would always offer suggestions on how to cut budget.
My wedding was not at a traditional wedding venue, we needed to rent everything, bathrooms, tables, chairs, plates, silverware….literally everything. She was onsite making sure deliveries were on time and everything was set up how we discussed, 10 hours plus hours a day for two days. I stopped by the venue multiple times and she was always there. The day of was a dream come true, to my knowledge everything went smoothly; I am sure it didn’t however I didn’t know about it and was able to enjoy every min of the day. She made sure that we were where we needed to be at important times, toasts, cake cutting etc. She and her assistant worked so hard to make my wedding perfect and I can honestly say it was my perfect day. If I ever have an event to plan again I will work with Mindy, she is amazing.
