Laura from Simply Events was amazing! Our wedding was seamless and there is no way we could have done it without her. We had a venue that required bringing everything in, and Laura did a flawless job of organizing and coordinating all of them. We had only hired Laura for the... Read More 'day-of' package, but she went above and beyond the call of duty contacting vendors weeks before the event taking a lot of stress out of the time leading up to the wedding. She made sure all loose ends were tied. Also, even though the bar tending company showed up with one less bartender than originally promised, Laura and her team stepped up to help bus drinks themselves. I would absolutely recommend Laura for your wedding!

We booked Simply Events about a year before our wedding and went with the Day-Of Package, initially to the Father-of-the-Bride's shegrin. He expressed several times that he did not see the value in paying someone to take care of the details the day of the wedding. Starting about... Read More 3 months before the wedding, Laura and Kelly began working with us on final preparations. The way with which they worked with us with organization, timeliness, responsiveness, and accessibility was a breath of fresh air. They thought of everything that could possibly go wrong and helped us come up with potential solutions. I never felt as though they were too busy to take my call or help me think through an issue. The area where Simply Events added the most value, to me, was helping to run the rehearsal and procession the day-of. They were collaborative with our priests (we had 2) during the rehearsal and very good at keeping our huge family focused and in-line. Our photographer was highly complementary of how easy Laura and Kelly were to work with and how integral Simply Events was in facilitating the photos. After all was said and done, my dad - who made his skepticism very clear - had a change of heart and was SO appreciative of Simply Event's services. He and the rest of our family members were able to relax and enjoy the day as everything was taken care of. As the Bride, I felt they did a fantastic job keeping me unaware of any issues that may have come up during the course of the day, which was so important for me and my sanity. Overall, I have nothing but positive things to say about Simply Events. They truly go above and beyond for their clients and made our wedding (and the start to our marriage) so enjoyable, carefree and memorable. Thank you! ~Kristen

My daughter's wedding was a fairly small event, but there were still so many details to attend to. With all parents of the couple living out of town and an unexpected work cross-country transfer for the bride and groom thrown in on top of wedding planing, the need for a... Read More professional wedding coordinator became obvious. Simply Events came to our rescue taking care of every last detail. We cannot thank Laura (Our Coordinator) and Catie enough for all they did to make my daughter and her husband's special day all they hoped it would be. We contracted for "Day Of" services, but the father of the bride (my husband) ended up in the emergency room just days before the wedding. One call to the coordinator was all it took for them to step in and add services the family had planned on handling. They picked up on all that needed to be done and went above and beyond all our expectations to make sure all preparations were completed and the wedding and reception went off without a single hitch. We don't know what we would have done if not for Simply Events and cannot recommend them highly enough!!!

Wow, I really could not have had a better experience with a wedding planner. We booked the Royal Treatment package and worked with Laura for a year leading up to our wedding.

In short: Laura and her team treat you like its their own wedding day. It sounds totally cheesy, but truly if I could give Laura more stars here I would.
