  • I can't begin to recommend Lisa highly enough as a wedding/event planner. We began working with Lisa under pre-COVID circumstances in 2019 to plan our September 2020 wedding. My then-fiance and I could tell right off the bat that Lisa was a winner and her services were worth all that she charged and more. She got to know us as people, not just as clients. Lisa worked to really understand our vision for a wedding (which was admittedly a little bit offbeat), and made sure she was with us at our visits with our caterer, our florist, and at a tour of the venue. Despite multiple changes of mind (by us) on the details, Lisa lined up a very affordable, unique, and memorable wedding for us and our 180 guests. Then COVID hit. Even though we could no longer have as large a gathering as we planned, Lisa resurrected our wedding and made it even better than before. She worked to find us a different caterer and bakery that were more appropriate for our new, small setting and stayed in ... Read more

  • To preface this there are no amount of words I can write that would adequately describe how grateful and blessed I feel to have met Lisa and have her bring my dream wedding to life. 2020 has been a difficult year for all, some more than others. Although my fiancé and I have no right to complain we were drastically effected by covid when it hit in March of 2020. Being both ICU nurses we had to quickly face our fears and help patients in need. After getting through those emotionally and physically draining months we emerged in the summer knowing that our wedding would surely be effected. After countless days and nights spent stressed about our wedding we met Lisa. With only a month and a half lisa was able to find my dream venue at the Owenego, book all my vendors, and bring my boho wedding dream to life. My wedding was not only beautiful, it was safe, organized and full of love. Lisa became like family and really put her whole heart into our wedding day. With all that being said my... Read more

  • Where do I begin? My wedding was ELEVATED because of Lisa. When COVID-19 restrictions stopped our original wedding plans, I knew I couldn't figure it all out alone. Enter - Lisa. From my first contact with her, I knew we were in good hands. Her quick responses, her thoughtful questions and her kind demeanor made our choice easy. You can tell from the second you speak to her that she absolutely loves what she does and that she cares so deeply about you. She helped us plan our dream wedding in 4 months. She completely took over on finding us a new venue, helping with every decor detail, establishing a timeline that made sense, finding us additional vendor and working with the vendors with already had. Her knowledge of the guidelines and restrictions due to COVID helped us plan in the safest way possible. I honestly could not have done this without her. She made our dream beach wedding possible. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaisis tried to stop our day when our venue lost power, but Lisa... Read more

  • We had to change our wedding plans due to COVID and moved from a larger, West Coast wedding where we live, to doing a small, family-only wedding in CT. Lisa was referred to us and we are so glad we used her! She was very perceptive and let us go at our own pace. We gave her a little bit of info about ourselves and our likes and she came up with the perfect ceremony. We also took her recommendations for florist and photographer. Both were amazing and made our day very special. Her enthusiasm and passion for what she does helped us to have an unforgettable day. She showed great flexibility and compassion for us during these trying times too. Thank you, Lisa!

  • The best!! Lisa and her team were more than we could have ever hoped for! Throughout the entire planning process, Lisa was on top of every detail and thinking 5 steps ahead. She allowed my husband and me to not worry about one little thing and enjoy our wedding day that much more. In my eyes, she's basically family at this point and I would recommend her to anyone! For any brides/couples who are looking for a planner they can have full confidence in, please do yourself a favor and get Lisa!

  • We hired Lisa pre-COVID to help plan our wedding in CT. Lisa was essential in helping us find vendors, figure out our vision, and plan within our budget. She is so knowledgeable, makes planning fun, and always picks up the phone! Of course like so many other couples, COVID changed our plans. We were more grateful than ever to have Lisa during an uncertain time – she stays on top of the local rules, walked us through our options, and had our best interests at heart. In the end, we opted for a family-only wedding out-of-state near my hometown. Lisa was with us every step of the way, and we’re so grateful! Cannot recommend her enough for navigating wedding planning during a pandemic!

  • Although I didn't use Lisa for her wedding planning services, I was thrilled to hear she also offered Justice of the Peace services! It was no question whether or not we would hire her, and my husband was equally as excited after we left our first meeting with her at the beginning of our engagement. She made the whole process simple and smooth - she even used her excellent planning skills during our final meeting to give us a print out of how everything would go during the rehearsal to ease my mind. She fully customized our ceremony with multiple options combined plus our own written vows and the unity ceremony of our choosing. She is completely open and willing to make your ceremony exactly what you've always envisioned, which can be overwhelming, but she helps make the deciding process easier and fun. Her personality is out of this world and perfect for a fun wedding for all. I can't recommend Lisa enough!! xoxo

  • Lisa and her team absolutely made all my wedding dreams come true. I’m tearing up writing this review right now because she truly is an amazing person inside and out. She went above and beyond to make my day the best it could be, and she made the whole planning process so much easier for us. Anything I needed she was right there to handle it. Her ideas and little added details made the day so perfect and a wedding that will never be forgotten by me and my husband but also by all of the guests. I can not recommend her enough and you’d be crazy to not hire her for your next event. Love you Lisa!!!

  • Lisa helped organize the perfect wedding day for us. From start to finished Lisa and her staff were all over every detail and planned everything down to the minute - nothing was left to chance, including pre-ordering 50 umbrellas on Amazon which Lisa then helped return for us at no cost (but huge piece of mind). Lisa was incredibly personable with our families and helped coordinate all of the vendors, including the photos, the band, flowers, transport, first look logistics, pastor, musicians, organist etc. I can't thank Lisa enough for making our day perfect and taking a huge weight off our shoulders with all the planning she did in advance

  • Lisa is amazing!! We planned a wedding from several states away while juggling very busy work schedules, and Lisa made the whole thing easy. She patiently guided us in great directions every time there was a decision to make and thought of all the little things we didn't think of. And she was a force of nature on our wedding day equal to the forces of actual nature--in the form of a huge thunderstorm that caused us to have to move our planned beach ceremony inside on an hour's notice. Our guests couldn't even tell that the indoor ceremony wasn't Plan A. I can't recommend Lisa highly enough. She will be the best decision you make for your wedding!

    Hello beautiful bride! Thank you so much for thinking of me and sending this beautiful review on behalf of you and Dave. It was such a wonderful fair at lighthouse point Park in New Haven and I am so very honored to have been there with you! Mother nature can’t stop us! Sending you both my very best!

  • I own the Connecticut Wedding Group in Middletown ,CT. When Samantha and I decided we were going to have our wedding at our home on the 4th of July , the senior wedding planner of my company strongly suggested that we should hire Lisa to be our wedding planner and organizer . Looking back on what was an over the top , incredible , memorable extravaganza it’s easy to realize that Lisa’s expertise was the key factor on pulling it all off so successfully . On our initial meeting Lisa brought her energetic persona into our living room , listened to our vision and quickly filled us with confidence that she was the one that could help us pull it off and have fun the whole way through . Lisa and her team worked tirelessly with an incredible attention to detail that kept us completely organized , ahead of schedule and always on track. She isn't afraid to speak her mind and offer her opinion but at the same time doesn’t take offense if yours differ . She quickly becomes your trusted advi... Read more

  • We love Lisa!! My husband and I seriously cannot say enough about the amazing work that Lisa does. The hashtag sign-off that she uses: #gettingitdone could not be more appropriate because she gets it done in every situation! Groom has no idea where to find or rent a suit? Done. Last minute decision to add a photo booth? Done. Find a new wedding dress three weeks before the wedding (yes, this all happened)- DONE! She literally saved the day for me and helped us stay calm in high stress situations many times before the wedding and on the wedding day. And to make the day even more stress-free, she brought along a team of women who were professional, knowledgeable and kind- real superstars! We started planning our wedding after our engagement without considering a wedding planner, but we are so glad we met Lisa and cannot imagine how our wedding would have come together without her expertise and skill. We are so thankful we were able to work with Lisa and would recommend her to any pote... Read more

  • I don’t even know how to begin to describe how much our family loves and appreciates Lisa. Our daughter was married on June 22—our second wedding in less than a year! We hired Lisa again without hesitation. Her attention to detail every step of the way was incredible. I told her several times “I don’t know what I would do without you!” In stressful situations, she always calmly reassured me that everything would be fine, and it was! Her response to emails or phone calls was always immediate. Even though we knew she was extremely busy with many other weddings, she made us feel like we were her only clients. She most definitely goes above and beyond. On wedding day, she made sure I didn’t lift a finger. She wanted me to enjoy the day with my daughter and family. Her staff is outstanding, especially Patti who calmly attended to some minor issues before the wedding (which seemed major at the time!) Every vendor that Lisa recommended was fantastic. It was an amazingl... Read more

  • There should be more than 5 stars for this review because Lisa and her team deserve all of them! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Lisa planning our wedding for 2 years. She has been with me since the beginning! At one point I told her I was very sad as the wedding got closer as I received the multiple warnings of “the day goes by in a blink, watch out!” But I said I wasn’t sad that the wedding would be over, but more sad I wouldn’t see her as much, spend time together as we had done for the past 2 years. Lisa is the type of person you hire as a wedding planner, but becomes your very good friend by the end of the process. But luckily I don’t live too far from the office! To give specifics, we hired Lisa as part of her Supreme Package wedding planning to help with everything from meetings with vendors, to invitation design and wording. Best decision of our whole wedding. Lisa was there every step of the way. It was through her website I found what ultimately e... Read more

    Gretchen, when are we having lunch?! LOL I can’t thank you enough for the thoughtful and wonderful review! I look forward to all the photos so we can relive the day, and I look forward to all of the adventures you and Eric will have, (And of course Eric and I playing tennis)! Thank you for being a client, a friend and a CCBL advocate! We adored being there on your journey! Lisa
