  • Working with Jamie over the past year and a half has been absolutely amazing. Jamie is amazing at what she does and she will not disappoint. From the moment I sent her an initial e-mail all the way through our wedding ceremony and reception last Saturday, Jamie was organized, thorough, professional, warm, and VERY good at her job. She was always accessible, especially when we hit little snags throughout the planning process. In all honesty, our wedding would not have been what it was (which is exactly what we wanted) without her and Lauren James Events! I cannot recommend Lauren James Events highly enough!

  • First of all, understand that I am incredibly picky with (sometimes) impossibly high standards. I rarely feel compelled to write reviews because most times I am left disappointed in some way with contractors and vendors. Not so with Lauren James Events. My daughter first learned of LJ Events from a friend of hers who married a few years back - a wedding that was featured in Bride’s. So when my daughter became engaged, she consulted with this friend about vendors. Jamie from LJ Events was at the very top of the list. This particular wedding was difficult to plan because I am located in CA, the bride was in NYC and the wedding was in Philly. Because of this, there were so many things that popped up that I did not anticipate in the months leading up to the wedding, but Jamie did. And that made what could have been a very stressful time for me much less so. Details are what make a wedding weekend the most memorable and Jamie has the details down to a science. But what stoo...

  • We strongly recommend Lauren James Events to help you plan your wedding. Lauren is an amazing wedding planner and also an amazing person. She helped us throughout the wedding process and came with us to various floral design meetings and joined us on some vendor calls. Lauren handled all the nitty gritty parts of wedding planning such as vendor communications etc. She answered all of our questions and was very helpful, friendly, and happy. The day of Lauren and Jamie made the wedding day go by seamlessly!! I was not stressed at all. They were efficient, down to business while also being positive and happy and making the day fun. They were by our side the whole time, and we are happy with how the day turned out. Feel free to Direct Message me if you want to know more! I can write so much more about them!! :)

  • We absolutely could not have put together such an elegant wedding and have all the complex logistics work so well without Lauren James Events! From the minute I spoke to Lauren on the phone I knew we would work well together, but I had no idea how invaluable her organizational skills, her know-how, her advice and truly her presence - her delightfully calm, but hands-on approach - were to all the prep and of course, the wedding day. I consider myself an extremely capable party planner and an experienced hostess and still I marvel at how amazing she is. I felt like she was my best friend throughout the planning process and I could turn to her for support and guidance, and she even went one step further and resolved issues. On the wedding day, she kept things running smoothly and made my daughter (the Bride) and all of us as stress-free as possible so we could enjoy the spectacular day and perfect weather (she even took the forecasted storms away)! She went above and beyond for the wh... Read more

  • Lauren and her team made our daughter’s wedding run flawlessly. We hired Lauren because we were from out-of-town and needed help with logistics and finding vendors. Because of Lauren’s meticulous planning before and the day-of the wedding, we enjoyed every minute. Lauren also had the best hair and makeup people. I’ve never seen a group of more gorgeous girls in my life!

  • Jamie and Lauren are incredible at what they do and are a pleasure to work with. Throughout the planning process we worked with Lauren and from day 1, it was clear she was seasoned and her knowledge would be invaluable. The confidence we felt in her put us at ease. They were extremely flexible and accommodating in providing the level of service that suite our needs best. From a planning standpoint, she was extremely organized and her timelines kept us on track so there would be no oversights and added stress later on. She made us aware of things we would have not otherwise thought of when planning and was extremely responsive communicating. A couple of weeks before the wedding she coordinated with all of our vendors so they were all on the sample page and put together a schedule of the entire day (starting at 645 AM, literally going until 1 AM). It scares me to imagine what it would have been like without them day of! There are so many moving parts that day and they were on top of ever... Read more

  • Jamie of LJEvents was our wedding planner and I can't say enough good things about our experience with her. Jamie is incredibly organized and responsive, plus just being an all around delightful person to work with. I organize a lot of events myself in my business life, so I have pretty high standards already, and Jamie far exceeded my every expectation. She anticipated every step along the way, and knows all the vendors in the Philadelphia area. Every other vendor we worked with, from the caterer to the DJ to the florist, said "oh Jamie's the best" and they were right! She worked tirelessly for us, answering emails quickly even on weekends and evenings. By the time we got to the big day, we could just sit back and enjoy being at our own wedding, while Jamie and the LJEvents team ran the show and managed every detail. Our family and guests raved that it was the best wedding they've ever been too. And a special thanks to Jamie for putting up with my husband's goofy jokes along the wa... Read more

  • Working with LJ Events and Lauren in particular was the best wedding decision we made. Her attention to detail and responsiveness made decision making easy and effortless (at least on our end!). We enjoyed our wedding weekend, stress-free, because of Lauren's leadership. Vendor concerns or questions were handled without our knowledge and we had the best weekend of our lives. Our family members were so impressed and well taken care of day-of. My hard-to-impress MIL was raving to all of her friends about the level of service.. I could not recommend LJ Events more.

  • If I could provide more than 5 stars, I would! Going with Lauren James Events was by far the easiest and best decision we made in the wedding planning process. Everyone we worked with was truly amazing - organized, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and just on it. I would recommend using them for any and every event anyone ever has!

  • Over the past year+ I worked with Jamie and LJ Events to plan my dream wedding. From our very first meeting, Jamie was professional, accommodating, responsive, and quickly became an integral part of our planning process. Jamie made it very easy (and fun!) for me and my mom to find the best vendors, stay organized, create the "vibe" (decorations, vendors, etc.) I was looking for, and not feel overwhelmed throughout the process, even though we had the added challenge of planning the wedding from across the country. She regularly communicated with us (and was extremely quick to respond when we reached out to her via text, email, or phone call) and our vendors to make sure we were all on track and had all of our questions answered ahead of schedule. Once the wedding weekend had arrived, we were able to totally enjoy the festivities knowing that Jamie and Lauren were there to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Both Jamie and Lauren helped make the wedding weekend the best ever for... Read more

  • Words can not adequately convey the sentiment we have for the effort, professionalism, enthusiasm, and sheer perfection of our wedding day, which was absolutely the result of Jamie Nadeau's expertise and planning. Not only was the day absolutely perfect, we continue to receive emails and calls from guests who say it was the best wedding they have ever attended. We agree!

  • I had the BEST experience working with Lauren James Events. From the very first day working with them to now, two weeks after the wedding, they have been amazing! I personally was very overwhelmed by the idea of the wedding planning process, but thanks to Lauren and Jamie, it could not have been a more enjoyable or stress free experience. Their attention to detail, their responsiveness, their network of vendors and contacts are incredible. The months leading up to the wedding were very organized and manageable due to their structured and reasonable approach. The day of our wedding was just perfect and I did not have a worry in the world the entire day! Their execution was flawless – not to mention, they were a joy to work with throughout. Lauren and Jamie responded to my millions of emails no matter what silly questions I had, attended all of our vendor meetings, and provided invaluable perspective and experience to each aspect of the planning process. They completely exceed our expe... Read more
