  • We are so glad we went with Laura! Laura is an expert in her craft, and brought so much peace of mind on our wedding day and the months leading up to it! This was the best decision my wife and I made during our entire wedding planning process. Laura took the time to ask us questions to understand our likes/dislikes. We asked Laura if she would be able to set aside some appetizers for us, and sure enough after our first dance, there was a plate of appetizers waiting for us! My wife and I HIGHLY recommend Laura to coordinate one of the biggest moments of your life!

  • The best decision Dan and I made with planning our wedding was hiring Laura as our wedding coordinator. The planning and event itself would not have been as amazing as it was without Laura’s knowledge, expertise, help and most importantly, friendship. When Dan and I first spoke with Laura we were impressed by her experience and knowledge and appreciated that she asked lots of questions about us. She truly wanted to get to know who we were as individuals and as a couple. While Dan and I had a vision and some ideas, event planning is not a skill of ours, nor do we like it so we knew we needed help and we were so happy we had the opportunity to work with Laura! Laura made us feel comfortable and excited and we knew we could trust her. Laura was always available to help, she was directive which Dan and I really needed, and she took the lead in coordinating and planning between all of our vendors. About 2-3 weeks leading up to our wedding, Laura would check-in with us throughout th... Read more

  • Booking Laura as our wedding planner was the best decision we made. She worked with us starting several months before the wedding and was wonderful every step along the way. I can't imagine doing it without her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help planning their wedding as well as for day-of coordination. She always replied very quickly to any questions we had, had great recommendations for decor, transportation, and other logistical things we would have never thought of, and was the MVP of our wedding day. My wife and I still talk about how we couldn't believe it was only her and not a team of people taking care of everything! Do yourself a favor and schedule a meeting with Laura today. She will save your sanity and make your planning and wedding day SO much easier!

  • Laura is the sole reason my Wife and I were able to maintain our sanity during our wedding. Laura will treat your event with the focus and attention to detail you deserve. The care she puts into planning your wedding is the same amount of energy and drive she would put into planning her own wedding. What more could you ask for in a coordinator/planner? Thank you Laura!!!!

  • Laura and her team did an amazing job. As the mother of the groom I observed how she supported, advised, guided and most importantly, listened to the bride and groom about their vision for their special day. She was not only there for the bride and groom but for all of us. Laura and her team worked effortless from the morning of the wedding until the last dance and beyond. Laura Detwiler Events is a prime example of what a wedding planner should be to a bride and groom and their family. Delightful, hardworking, efficient, fun are just a few of the words that describe LDE! If you are in need of a wedding/event planner contact Laura, she will not disappoint.

  • Wow, where to even start... Laura and her team came on board 60 days prior to my daughters 12/28/2019 wedding in St Pete at Stationhouse. On our first meeting, I knew right away she and Sam would take care of all my remaining worries, final confirmations and timeline. What I didn’t realize then was how much more they actually did. Laura was there from the rehearsal, the day before, and again, the day of the wedding, from 11am until the last items were repacked and taken away at 11:30pm. She navigated the day calmly and professionally with my daughter (the bride), MOH (also daughter) and checked in with me several times throughout the day. She already contacted and connected with all our vendors, reviewed every contract and had the timeline organized down to the minute. When we showed up to the venue for the first time, my daughter and I were both teary eyed in total awe of what Laura and Sam put together. My daughter, the bride, is a DIY master. Laura and Sam beautifully... Read more

  • Laura is just as excited about your wedding as you are! I originally got her day of package and quickly realized I needed more of her quality service and suggestions so I increased my package. Laura made my day an absolute dream. She made sure I was not distracted and spent 100% of the time with my new hubby, our family and friends. If something went wrong, I didn’t have a clue nor did I notice because she took care of everything. Whether a bouquet was missing or the guest count was off, Laura took care of it all with ease and calmness and I just soaked in the love and joy from the day! I highly recommend AT LEAST doing her day of service so you can dance and mingle and not worry about vendors arriving, delivering, picking up, timelines, and all the other details. She truly is a joy to work with and such a kind person! Plus her experience is incredible, from doing wedding of 50-700, she’s done it all! Last thing that I really appreciated, whether you’re looking to go big with all... Read more

  • Laura was our day of wedding coordinator for our wedding at the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast on October 19, 2019. Words cannot describe how incredible Laura was pre and post wedding. I am extremely detailed oriented and I honestly thought I had the every detail of my wedding thought out and planned; Boy was I wrong! Laura brought to my attention so many important factors that I did not even think of! She had a detailed planner for our wedding and took amazing notes for each meeting we had. She honestly took SO much stress off my plate and I am so thankful for her. She contacted my vendors and helped me create a detailed wedding timeline. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side. Laura gave us may different options and scenarios to make sure our wedding day was perfect. It seemed like she didn't stop for a minute throughout our whole wedding day. She even picked up all the cupcakes the morning of the wedding so I wouldn't have to worry about it. She was so quick to respond... Read more

  • Laura handled my daughter’s wedding this past April at Selby Gardens and we couldn’t be more pleased! Laura was incredibly professional, proactive, and hands-on! Communication with Laura was excellent. She double and triple checked everything to make the day special. She also did so much on the day! There was no task too big or too small and everything went smoothly. We did not have to worry about a thing! Laura also gave great advice and offered solutions to potential issues we never even imagined. She basically thought of everything do we didn’t have too! She also didn’t stop on the wedding day. She made sure that after the wedding we were satisfied and if there was anything else we needed, she was there for us. Thank you Laura for your hard work and your friendly and positive attitude! We appreciate you making Maddeline and Eno’s wedding the best day ever!!

  • The best decision we made for our wedding was to have Laura Detwiler Events help us plan. She was so wonderful to get to know and she felt like a perfect match from the time we first met with her. Her attention to detail, professionalism, organizational skills, and her willingness to go above and beyond certainly exceeded our expectations. We honestly couldn't have done it without her. Laura was able to help us with checklists, met with us anytime, picked up last minute things, took over communication with our vendors, and planned everything with us in mind. She took so much off our plates and was able to create a seamless and calm wedding day not just for me and my now husband but also our families. Laura even took it upon herself to install all of our chair covers, which saved us from having to pay the venue to do it! Do yourself a favor and book her NOW so that you can have a SUPERWOMAN plan your wedding or event, you will not regret it!

  • I am overly impressed with the attention to detail that Laura provided for our amazing wedding! Not only did we gain a new friend, but every vendor, musician and restaurant told how amazing she was to work with! We couldn’t have been luckier to find someone of her caliber and she wasn’t even the priciest coordinators we interviewed! I would highly recommend everyone to give her your business as you will not be disappointed!!!
