  • Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was responsive and helpful every step of the way during our planning process and was an incredible asset during the wedding weekend itself! I strongly recommend working with LJ Events - they are not only incredible planners but great people! Not only did I have a wonderful experience with them, but friends, family, and other vendors expressed the same!

  • I couldn't recommend Lauren James events more for your event planning needs. We are two weeks post-wedding and people are still constantly telling us "you had the best wedding ever." Their attention to detail and professionalism is amazing, but more than that they genuinely want to make your day the best they can. We choose to use their full-service package and Jamie was with us every step of the way. From day one she understood the vision I had for my wedding and she made it happen. She even took time on a weekend vacation to DC (where we live) to go to a vendor appointment with us. She balanced family dynamics and personalities flawlessly. Her vendor recommendations were great--we were so pleased with our entire team and her coordination among many, many people was amazing. As the bride, everyone tells you to be prepared for something to go wrong with your wedding and "don't sweat the small stuff", but I can honestly say I think everything went off without a hitch and we owe that la...

  • When I first told my mother that we were hiring a Wedding Planner, she was very skeptical; believing that we could handle ourselves all the preparations. She will now admit she could not have been more wrong. From the moment we hired Jamie and she started working with us until the very end of our spectacular day, I am convinced that she and her team were instrumental in almost every aspect of the planning and execution. There were many things that we had no clue about and many more she helped steer the wedding ship away from potential danger or outright disaster. All of the events on September 16 went off flawlessly because of the meticulous advance planning and her ability to calmly and quickly deal with any issue that, real or perceived, threatened to throw things off at the church, Memorial Hall, and in between. Things could not have gone any better from our perspective. The irrefutable proof occurred during and after the wedding in the overwhelming number of glowing comments... Read more

  • Lauren James Events was the best wedding coordinator we could have ever asked for!! We worked mostly with Lauren, and she was absolutely incredible. She was extremely responsive, friendly, organized, and professional throughout the entire wedding process. In the month before our wedding, Lauren took over with the planning details and was truly a lifesaver. Her organization, expertise, and attention to detail kept us on track and helped make our wedding day perfect. I would highly recommend using Lauren James Events . Booking them for wedding coordination is one of the best (and easiest!) wedding planning decisions you will make!!

  • From the very first time I met Lauren and Jamie from Lauren James Events, I knew that they would be the perfect fit for our wedding day. They were professional, extremely responsive and overall a pleasure to work with. Throughout the entire wedding process, I worked with Lauren, and she could not have been more helpful. She was so well organized that I literally had nothing to worry about, and when I did start to worry about certain things coming together, she assured me that everything would be perfect...and IT WAS! Even with a unexpected last minute change a few days before our wedding, she did not even bat an eye, handled the situation flawlessly and without any hesitation. On the day of the wedding, Lauren was AMAZING! She was there for me and my now husband and made sure everything we discussed leading up to that day was taken care of. My vision came to life so much because of her and her exceptional communication skills with so many of my vendors. I am beyond grateful for Lauren ... Read more

  • Our experience planning our wedding with Jamie and Lauren was phenomenal. These ladies truly care about their clients' special day, and do everything in their power to ensure that every detail is carefully tended to at each step in the planning process! My husband and I were planning our wedding during a particularly busy and stressful year in our lives, and Jamie and Lauren turned an otherwise daunting task into an exceptionally organized, smooth and enjoyable journey. Jamie and Lauren have a solid understanding of the wedding industry in Philly and the surrounding area, and had a wealth of knowledge about local vendors to share in order to put together the perfect wedding team for us. Now that the event is over, we miss communicating with them every day! Their professionalism is unwavering, yet they have a natural ability to connect with clients in a way that enabled them to anticipate my thoughts and requests, and many times took care of things well before I even thought to ask them...

  • People always say a wedding planner is worth the money, and after just having a wedding, I couldn’t agree more! My venue came with a day of event coordinator, who was fantastic, but the services Jamie and Lauren provided were above and beyond what a venue coordinator can do for you. They are a wealth of information. I emailed constantly with random questions of which were answered promptly and concisely. It is refreshing to work with people who love what they do. They are energetic, fun, organized and calming all at once. It was clear the focus was on making sure the day was everything I wanted it to be. Because of Lauren and Jamie I truly enjoyed every second of my own wedding. I never worried about making sure everyone was in the right place, if the flowers arrived on time, where the photographer was, etc. If anything went wrong, I never knew about. For example, I made welcome letters for the hotels to hand out to guests. A handful of guests made reservations at hotels... Read more

  • I had contacted another event planner who was not available for the date and she referred me to Lauren James Events! My daughter's engagement was just under six months so planning was fast and furious. Jamie was key to making the wedding and reception for over 200 guests "the best wedding ever"! She was available to me anytime for any reason. Jamie made suggestions I would never have thought of that added to the event. Jamie is well acquainted with "vendors" in the business--make up, hair design, band and banquet manager all know Jamie! On the day of the wedding I did not worry about one thing. Jamie fielded questions, got us to the church on time and dealt with any and all vendors. Jamie and Lauren were with us from the rehearsal through the last, last, last dance and took care of all personal items loading them in the limo. I did not need to return the next day to collect anything. These ladies kept me calm and able to enjoy our daughter's wedding. I am so lucky I had La... Read more

  • We cant say enough about Jamie and LJ Events. She was a calming influence from the get go. On the day of the wedding, we needed only to focus on our daughter and enjoy the day. All the details were left to Jamie !! It was seamless !! Jamie worked with the Band, Transportation, Banquet Manager, on and on and on. Took calls late in the evening and was responsive from the get go. My wife and are were one happy parents of the Bride.

  • Where do I begin!!! Without Jamie, I think we would have all been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Her strengths truly shined in the 11th hour - where she took my calls and responded to my texts in the middle of the night, answered every question - big or small - she knows the answer or finds it out for you in a snap... thought of every minute detail, met us anywhere at any time, ensured every vendor (and there were a lot of them) was synced together and on the same page, and kept us so happy - she made the planning so fun! Very Inspiring. I truly trusted her with my life! She is a sweet, wonderful woman - And wow, those lists of hers will put even the most organized bride to shame. Thank You Jamie! You're my girl!

  • We are so thankful that we hired Lauren James Events for our wedding. We worked with Jamie and she is not only a great person but she is AWESOME at her job. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy our wedding day instead of coordinating details the whole time. It was WORTH every penny and I highly recommend them!

  • Lauren James Events is the best investment you could make for your wedding. Lauren was one of the first calls I made when I got engaged. Lauren and Jamie promptly respond to all calls and questions, regardless of how ridiculous the question may be. They go above and beyond and think of every possible detail, which allows you to plan and enjoy without added stress. When it came to the day of our wedding, Lauren planned every detail and the whole day ran seamlessly. I would highly recommend them, and we will use Lauren James Events for any future events that we plan!

  • We worked with Lauren for my daughter's wedding on April 22, 2017..... she was fabulous! I couldn't have done it without her. Lauren was always available to give advise or listen to us. She was organized, professional, and supportive from the beginning of the planning to the end of the evening at the wedding. Lauren had everything under control the day of the wedding to allow us to enjoy the beautiful evening. We couldn't have done it without Lauren!!!!

  • I worked with Jamie for our wedding on March 18th, 2017 and have nothing but appreciate and love for her! I truly don't think I could have done it all without her. She was so organized and professional throughout the entire process. She helped me stay on top of payments, communication and ideas. She was able to make introductions to various vendors and helped me get responses from some when I couldn't. My family and bridal party was so impressed with how easy Jamie & her team made the wedding day flow. Her timeline and thoroughness of each detail was outstanding. Working with Jamie was the best decision I made when it came to hiring any vendors. There is no doubt in my mind she is the wedding planner you want!

  • "My daughter was married March 11, 2017, at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, and we contracted with Lauren James events for our event planners. My contact was Jamie, and I cannot begin to tell you how invaluable she was to us. I have never met anyone who attended to detail so efficiently. Every deadline that needed to be met was managed by her, and she was incredibly pleasant and good humored throughout the process. There was never a moment when she appeared rushed, and she had a way of making you feel as if you were her only client, even though that is far from the truth. Her professionalism, class, and generosity of spirit were indispensable to us, and despite the inevitable tensions along the road, she remained calm and measured herself. She even delivered a wheelchair to the Double Tree for my elderly mother, after we discovered we needed another one at the last moment. She was our anchor, organizer, and confidant throughout the months leading to the wedding, and I can honestl... Read more
