  • Stop reading and trust that LJ events is exactly what you need. I was lucky enough to be referred to them by a friend of a friend who said "YOU MUST HIRE HER!" and I fully agree. Jamie from LJ events helped me and my husband pull off the impossible by planning a full 70 person wedding in just under 5 weeks weeks. They helped plan and execute every single detail from vendor recommendations, design, timeline, and about 1,000,000 other logistics that went into this - all while being completely calm, in control, and overall just freaking on top of it. The day of she and her team executed flawlessly. People are still raving about the wedding and the amount of detail that went into it. Wouldn't have been possible without Jamie. Forever grateful.

  • Jamie was phenomenal at helping us plan our day. We appreciated so much her attention to detail, her positive attitude, and her aptitude for problem solving so quickly that we often didn’t even realize there were issues. On the wedding day, any wonder or question that came up Jamie had already thought of and was in the process of solving. She is truly the reason our wedding day went off with our a hitch. We loved every minute of the year and a half that we worked with Jamie, and by the end she felt like both a member of our team and a member of our family; we cannot say enough about her level of service!

  • This team is the best! We worked with Jamie - she is top-notch! Extremely well organized, highly responsive, detailed and very in touch with what we wanted. She helped bring my daughter's vision of her wedding to life and then some!! She went above and beyond with every detail. She intuitively knew what we wanted and made it all happen!! We would highly recommend them to anyone/everyone - best decision we made in the wedding journey!! Thank you LJ Events!!!

  • Lauren and Jamie are truly outstanding professionals to work with in all aspects of wedding planning. I hired them because one of my best friends was one of the most organized and best brides that I had ever seen on her wedding day. I used their full services at the time of the beginning of the wedding process, and they were both with me throughout the entire process. Lauren truly became a friend- someone who understood my wishes, advocated for the aesthetic that I was hoping for, and she truly found a way to meet all needs that I had including my budget. On my wedding day, I felt as though my friend was celebrating my special day with me. I was calm and at ease that I was truly in the best hands, and my wedding day was truly the best day of my life because of the team that LJ Events helped me comprise. The primary compliment from all guests was that it was the most seamless wedding that they had ever seen. I would recommend them to every bride; they are truly outstanding.

  • Working with Jamie to plan our wedding was probably the best decision we made. She made the process so easy and took so much work off of our plates. She was able to recommend vendors, arrange meetings and relayed anything we wanted done to our vendors - even arranged our meetings with vendors. Jamie payed attention to every detail and was on top of everything! When planning our wedding with her I felt like I could ask her anything about the wedding process, not just wedding detail questions. She was super responsive and always found an answer or way to get the things done that we wanted done. She was truly the best!

  • Finding the right wedding planner was our first, and arguably most important, decision when we started planning our wedding. We asked around for recommendations and kept hearing the name, Lauren James Events, and we're so glad we did! When we met with Jamie from LJE, we felt easy chemistry and were immediately impressed with LJE's expertise and full-service offerings, and post-meeting, their responsiveness and attention to detail. When we signed on, we didn't quite realize just how *full service* LJE is. We had a large, backyard wedding, which requires A LOT of planning. Over the course of the year, LJE managed over a dozen vendors and helped us navigate countless decisions from the tiniest details (e.g., string light placement) to the biggest decisions (e.g., our rain plan). LJE kept us on track throughout the year-long planning process and, most importantly, on our actual wedding day. It's not hyperbole when I say our wedding was perfectly executed thanks to LJE. We wouldn't change a... Read more

  • Lauren (and LJ Events) was just so perfectly amazing for us! She took everything we told her and suggested to her and crafted the best wedding that was the perfect blend of our personalities - and all of her vendor suggestions were not only within budget but were amazing and helped to create a wonderful day. We never had to worry about any of the behind-the-scenes vendor or logistical aspects of things; she went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. It was the best day ever - thanks to Lauren and LJ Events! Thank you!

  • My wife and I worked with Jamie & Lauren at LJ Events for our wedding and honestly could not imagine our day without them. With all the money that gets spent on the wedding day, the wedding planner was easily the best money spent. Now looking back, it would have been extremely silly and detrimental to the outcome of our wedding day to have not hired any wedding planner, but more specifically Jamie & Lauren. From months out, their attention to detail is unrivaled. Their constant interaction with you calms you knowing that while you may not know everything or have thought of everything you don't need to because you have them. They stayed on top of everything pre-wedding, including important details you couldn't dream of thinking of. When you thought their value couldn't get better - they will blow you away the day of. Our wedding day could have easily spiraled at the first sign of "disaster" and while they can and will put out each and every fire - they don't even allow one to ... Read more

  • I can not even put into words how amazing Jamie is , she made my wildest dreams come true through her numerous connections and she was ALWAYS ready with a suggestion when I wanted another “WOW” factor or when I had a dream she made it a reality. On the actual day of the wedding I swear she was a magician .... she had everything down to a science and under control I did not stress once. I left the most important day of my life that I had been planning since I was a little girl in her hands and she made it PERFECT. I can not say enough about her , I miss talking to her! She is an amazing person and an even more amazing planner !!!! Not to mention the next morning she shared an album of pics she had taken throughout the whole day that were amazing - just one of the little added bonuses you would get if you work with Jamie!

    Thank you so much for your note, Samara! It was so great to be a part of your wedding weekend! Love these pics!

  • I am not a person who often writes reviews, but in this case I must. Jamie Nadeau was awesome in every way possible - organized, calm, responsive, and a pure pleasure to work with. Did I mentioned organized? She was on top of every detail I could think of, and quite a few I didn’t think of. I was initially undecided whether to hire a wedding planner or not, but I encourage all brides to take the plunge, especially with LJEvents. You will not be disappointed and they will make your special day run smoothly and flawlessly! Connolly/Werner wedding - 6/15/19.

  • Jamie and Lauren were absolute perfection. We had no plans to get a planner because we are organized, and figured we could work it out ourselves. In the hopes that it'd relieve a little pressure during a busy time, we booked Lauren James Events and it was truly the best decision we made for this wedding. They go above and beyond what you think a planner might do. Every detail you won't think of, I guarantee they already have. They managed the day beautifully and made it feel seamless and calm, for both the families and the guests - not an easy feat with families and wedding parties that are anxious to make the wedding "perfect." I can't recommend Lauren James Events highly enough, and am so grateful for everything they've done for us and our wedding.

  • Maybe you'll be lucky enough to hire Jamie for your event. Our daughter's wedding was simply perfect and she is largely responsible. While the bride and groom live in Philly, both sets of parents are out of town, so this was a destination wedding for us and most of the guests. I thank our lucky stars every day that we found her. Lauren James Entertainment was the number one wedding planner recommendation of every wedding venue we toured and after one initial telephone conversation it was easy to see why. We worked exclusively with Jamie, who is delightful; knowledgeable, professional, experienced, warm and easy to talk to. Honestly, she left no stone unturned. Even though our wedding was a year and a half out when we hired her, and in the beginning she had clients with more pressing needs than ours, we were always made to feel that we were a priority. The wedding was scheduled for a holiday weekend and Jamie helped us to secure some of the city's most highly sought vendors prompt... Read more

  • This is a hard review for me to write, because there is so much to say about how incredible Jamie and her team were throughout the entire wedding planning process. Where to begin... When you start working with Lauren James they make sure that they understand your vision and your vibe. They take into consideration what you say and feel and also try to accommodate the expectations of your parents and your guests. They can see the big picture, even if you can't. Jamie and her team are also connected throughout the entire Philadelphia area so they only introduce you to the best vendors to work with and believe me when I say they will assemble an all-star team for you! Our band, our venue, our photographer, our flowers and invitations were all amazing and that is thanks to Jamie coordinating with all of them. Jamie and her team are also hands on from day 1 of planning, which I appreciated because I had so many questions throughout the year of planning the Wedding. And she answered each... Read more

  • Not sure where to begin with Jamie and LJ Events. From the day we met Lauren and Jamie until 2am at the conclusion of our wedding’s after party…and still, now, 5 weeks later…we have been ranting and raving to our family and friends about our wedding planner. More than just the actual planning itself, but the timely, friendly, FUN, and professional way they conduct themselves in the event planning industry. To say that wedding planning would have been survivable WITHOUT Jamie is a blatant lie (and not just because she also served as my wife’s therapist for the last year). Beyond giving us a list of the best vendors, setting up – and going to – those meetings, Jamie led us through the wedding planning process in a way that we can only describe as perfect. On the day of our wedding, everything was seamlessly executed and beyond our wildest dreams. To date, beyond the décor/food/music/atmosphere, our family and friends continue to talk about the timing and the flow of wh... Read more

  • The best decision I have ever made (aside from saying yes to my husband) was choosing work with Lauren James Events as our wedding planners. I am a very detail oriented person and live for a good to do list but we knew we needed a wedding planner from day one and so it was a priority to seek out the best. LJ Events came highly recommended and exceeded our expectations. From the first day we met both Jamie and Lauren- it was like planning with my best friends- they completely understood our vision for our wedding. I knew we would be a perfect fit. Within hours we had signed our contract and began working with Jamie. We explained what we were looking for, for our wedding and Jamie quickly provided us a list of recommendations for vendors tailored to our taste and budget. She was beyond helpful with setting up appointments, listening to our pro and con lists and assisting us with finding who would be the perfect fit. Jamie's responsiveness (seriously, minutes), professionalism and attenti... Read more
