  • Thank you so much for all of your help, advice, guidance and support during our wedding planning process. You made all the overwhelming and daunting tasks manageable and made our special day one that we will both never forget. Your impeccable taste and attention to detail was amazing.  Thank you for also putting up with my 5:00am emails and never-ending questions!   I also LOVED my wedding florals! You nailed it!  I wasn't sure if I would be able to get the vision in my mind across, but somehow you got it because it looked exactly as I'd hoped, and even better! It was beautiful! We can't recommend you enough!

  • Don't waste your time interviewing other wedding planners - the L's are the Dream Team! They will bring your dream wedding to reality. They went above and beyond to take the reigns for our wedding after there were some problems with another wedding planner we had stupidly hired first. They were such a breath of fresh air - extremely organized and their attention to detail is amazing. They enabled me to have a FLAWLESS wedding thanks to their incredible experience and connections. I was very worried about my wedding running smoothly until they stepped in - I never had to think about anything else after they took over. Their vision and understanding of colors, flowers, beautiful details like painting gold menus to make the color pop better... the list goes on. Their team is well trained and they're all a true team - they work well together and are happy to be a part of your day. They turned my wedding day into a fairy tale that people are still talking about almost a year later! Laur... Read more

  • Hired these lovely ladies for a second time this year as my florists and they did not disappoint! They pay attention to every last detail and gave me, once again, everything I was expecting and MORE! Thank you ladies for giving that extra special touch to my MIL’s 60th birthday. I can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve for Christmas! Yes I’m hiring Lisa and Laurie for a third time in one year, for Christmas flowers 💐❤️

  • After getting engaged I knew I wanted a wedding planner. I met with a couple of planners but didn't get the right vibe. I saw a beautiful photo online and tracked down the planners. After checking out their website and amazing reviews I decided to email Events by L. We met with Laurie and Lisa and immediately fell in love! They were very enthusiastic, amazing and seemed to really love what they do. They immediately understood what we were after and directed us to all the right people. They delivered on their promises and everything was beautiful. They knew all the answers to my questions and when we had problems and confusion they took control and eased my worries like such pros! Our reception was like a dream. Their team worked tirelessly to give us the beautiful and fun wedding we always wanted. If I could do it all over again - I wouldn't change a thing - maybe have it longer! Thank you so much ladies! You are such gems and miracle workers! We had THE greatest time and ev... Read more

  • If you can do one thing to take the edge off your wedding day, hire Events by L. I am a planner and a bit of a control freak, but as I got deeper into coordinating my own wedding, I knew I didn't want to spend the "day of" running around worrying about details. Thank goodness Laurie and Lisa were available on my special day and they were worth every penny! They worked with my vendors, had the itinerary down pat, kept everyone on point, helped me when I was frazzled... I just can't say enough! I can't imagine how my day would have done without them. He was a nervous wreck and they completely put him at ease! I was able to relax and enjoy myself until I walked towards the man I'm spending the rest of my life with. Who wouldn't want that? I knew everything was taken care of and in the perfect hands with these lovely ladies. They are top-notch, their reputation second to none, and fun ladies to be around too! Don't hesitate! Shoot them an email. You won't be disappointed. Ro... Read more

  • What can I say? We had the pleasure of working with the L’s and their team and they are truly amazing. Laurie and Lisa are such a sweet, creative, and knowledgeable team. They helped me create the wedding of my dreams. I absolutely loved my floral arrangements, they were absolutely gorgeous. Choosing Events by L for my florist and Month of Coordinator was the best decision I made for my wedding. My husband and I loved working with Laurie and Lisa. They kept me informed throughout the whole process and notified me about anything that needed my attention. The L’s hard work and dedication to make sure my wedding was absolutely perfect was definitely apparent. They were very meticulous and incredibly detailed with the design they had helped me create. Laurie, Lisa, and the Events by L team are genuinely good, caring, and hard working. If you want a top notch design team, florists, and coordinators to give you a wedding of your dreams, I highly recommend The L’s and their team at Even... Read more

  • I could not have done my wedding day without the help of Laurie and Lisa. They coordinated the day of and made sure that absolutely every detail was taken care of and that everything went off without a hitch. They took care of all the communication with my vendors, set up our ceremony and reception exactly as I had pictured it, and were overall just so easy and nice to work with. The value of their services is beyond anything I imagined and I am so thankful I was able to have them as a part of my wedding day. Thank you, Laurie and Lisa!!!!

  • Events by L was recommended to me by my wedding venue, and once we met with them, it was very obvious why they were so highly recommended! She definitely knows her stuff and is an amazing florist! They have been in this business for a long time and were able to help us stick to our budget by recommending ways to cut costs but still have a beautiful floral spread. Since they were so familiar with our venue, they also were familiar with the venue layout and the small details that mattered (e.g. the strong wind that is commonly present) and were able to recommend things to make our ceremony and reception look its best. They were responsive to all emails and was able to answer all the questions that I had. The day of the wedding, they delivered everything on time, and all the bouquets/boutonnieres/corsages were labeled. In addition, it was crazy hot that day, and they worked with the venue to ensure that our flowers would not sit out in the sun for hours before the wedding started. I would... Read more

  • My husband and I can't thank the L's enough for helping to make our wedding day perfect! We had a pretty long engagement and we were in contact with them from the very beginning. They helped to keep us organized with every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed the planning process because of them. When our wedding day finally came, everyone around me kept commenting on how calm I was. That's because I had full trust in Laurie, Lisa and their team to execute all of the details. Not only did they execute......they went above and beyond our expectations! We also used the L's for our florals. They turned out even better than we could have ever imagined! Events by L is worth every single penny and will make your planning and decor process so much easier. EVENTS BY L WAS THE BEST WEDDING DECISION WE MADE!! I will truly miss working with them.

  • It was an absolute joy working with Laurie and Lisa for my wedding day! They are the most kindhearted people and truly care about their clients and have amazing work ethic. Everything was incredibly easy and effortless leading up to the big day, which is so important when you are dealing with all of the stress of planning a wedding. The floral arrangements all came out perfectly and were more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! The colors they selected for the flowers complimented our natural wedding theme flawlessly. If you want someone who is truly passionate about what they do and does an incredible job, I would strongly recommend working with Events by L for your big day. They helped make my wedding experience so much better!

  • I don’t know where to start. The ladies went over and beyond for me. Especially the month leading up to my big day. We had a few hiccups during the wedding and the girls took care of them right away. They were open to extra meetings and held my hand throughout the entire wedding planning process. I settled with decor for my hall, well I thought I did. When my husband and I arrived at the banquet hall and did our first look in private of our room I CRIED!! Lisa and lauri went way above there job tile for me. I had the most beautiful decor set up, extras galore they surprised me with and most of all they had gotten my vision perfectly. The L’s are professional, prompt, caring, perfectionist, and the list can keep going. I could see their passion for what they do. I also had the L’s as my florist. They went over and beyond to work with me and budget so I didn’t feel like I was compromising on anything. Thanks ladies for making my day unbelievably perfect. I know it wouldn’t ha... Read more

  • Events by L did a fantastic job as our "Day Of" coordinators! I say "Day Of" very lightly, because they did a great deal of preparatory work prior to our wedding day. We met months before and then I happily handed Laurie and Lisa the reigns a month before my big day. I will never forget the weight that was lifted off of me that day!!!!! Aside from that they did a great job helping us to select our wedding invitations at a fraction of the price that we anticipated it costing. I am still receiving compliments regarding our wedding invitations! They communicated thoroughly through my endless texts/e-mails and were so patient with my indecisiveness. They really went beyond what we hired them for and helped give me so many awesome suggestions I never would have thought of...and I scoured Pinterest day in and day out!! The L's and their entire team are so personable and worked very well with our vendors. They also had a great deal of connections that can help you make rep... Read more

  • Our corporate event exceeded my expectations. Not only did you create a great ambiance with the lounges, lighting, and music, but the food displays by your preferred vendors and your incredible floral designs were a work of art. And the entertainment? People are STILL talking about it. Our guests all enjoyed a wonderful evening. Thank you so much for making us look good. We are so lucky to have such a dynamic team managing our events and look forward to working with you on the next one.

  • As we started our wedding planning process, our first step was to find a full-service wedding planner, but it was difficult to find someone to entrust with such an important day. We are so grateful we found Events by L! The L's are absolutely professional, organized, have impeccable style, and truly care about your wedding -- they are the best in the business. They were always available during the planning process to answer any questions we had and offered their expert advice. They also made recommendations for vendors who delivered. Events by L truly executed our vision for our wedding day! Thank you, Laurie and Lisa!
