  • Hiring Mindy as our month-of-coordinator was by far and away the best decision my husband and I made in our wedding planning process. The plan we had in mind for our ceremony and reception was extremely complicated and there is a 0% chance we could have pulled it off without Mindy's coordination and advice at every turn. Mindy knows the wedding industry in NH like the back of her hand and could not have guided us more expertly (and kindly) throughout the entire planning process. She introduced us to vendors and helped us navigate the various timelines, contracts and weird quirks that come from throwing a wedding in the woods and on a lake. Leading up to the wedding, she worked with me for hours and hours and hours on what might have been the most complicated day-of-timeline in wedding history, and was available any time of the day by email, text, or conference call for questions, advice or venting sessions. She helped us tackle last minute planning emergencies and brainstorm and collec... Read more

  • Mindy was absolutely amazing and I could not imagine having a wedding without her. Her style and work speaks for itself, but what it doesn't show is all of her behind the scenes hard work and dedication. She was available 24/7 for whatever we needed and anytime an issue arose, she found a solution. She helped put together an amazing team of vendors and managed them to perfection. Thanks to Mindy, our guests were amazed by the attention to detail and how elegant the entire night was. Everything was flawless from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the reception. Thank you Mindy! You are the best! - Jenna & Eli

  • This was the second wedding that Mindy and her terrific team coordinated for our family. The first was at our home on a beautiful August day 4 years ago on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. People are still talking about it to this day. When our second daughter got engaged we knew who to call immediately. Mindy helped plan everything from start to finish. No matter what your style or budget she will help your day be everything you ever hoped or dreamed of. Our second daughter was married this past September and her wedding was equally as awesome. We kept hearing all night that both our daughters weddings were the best they had ever attended. We have one more daughter to go and there is no question who will be one of the first people we will call. She is awesome, professional and I believe that will all of her knowledge and connections she will actually save you money and stress.

  • Simply put, our wedding would not have been possible without the never ending efforts of Mindy and her team. We knew we needed a planner when we decided to plan a long distance wedding that required boat rides for ~135 guests and involved multiple vendors we would never meet in person until the day of. We received a recommendation for Mindy and set up a phone call with her during a long trip in the car. After an hour plus phone discussion (in which she provided a TON of free advice) we knew we had to hire her for her planning and day of coordination services. Our wedding was over 18 months away and we can't begin to tally up the text messages, emails and frantic phone calls we busied Mindy with during that timeframe. Mindy not only thought of everything but also handled everything. From our end, and according to other friends/guests, everything ran so smoothly. Mindy provided so much thoughtful input on decorations, menu considerations, timing, alcohol, etc. We had the ... Read more

  • As the Mother of the Bride, it is so important to have someone to help with the planning and the logistics, especially since the bride and groom live in Virginia and I live in CT. It took approximately 5 days of having her on board for her to save us money by recommending a different caterer (who was amazing, by the way) and creating a detailed plan and budget with us. She was instrumental in keeping us organized and absolutely indispensable with her knowledge of and connections to vendors in the lakes region. Everything Mindy did for us and with us was absolutely great. The day of coordination was so critical for us to stay on schedule and have someone else worry about the details. She and her staff were worth every penny and we could not have done it without them. We are still hearing from people about what a great wedding it was and some have said it was the best wedding they've ever attended. If you have a vision, Mindy can help make it come true.

  • Mindy is a great wedding planner! We could not have done it without her. As a bride, you have to trust that your planner will not only understand your vision but will complete it as well. I gave her 100% trust and she exceeded my expectations. The day was perfect and working with her over the last several months was easy. She eliminated any stress from planning. I highly recommend her!!

  • I worked with Mindy over about 18 months to plan our wedding for August of this year. My parents live locally in the Lakes Region but my husband and I live in California and were only able to come out a few times before the wedding. My approach to planning was to have some opinions but to leave Mindy to work her magic and she did a PHENOMENAL job. There were several huge challenges thrown in the mix, including changing the venue 7 months before the wedding to a new site which hadn't hosted a wedding before. She also helped make sure our catering was TOP NOTCH for the event despite having a subpar tasting event. She clearly knows the Lakes Region wedding scene, and took our limited ideas of what we envisioned for our event and made them come to life in a way that exceeded our expectations and our dreams. She had great recommendations and was also more than willing to work with other new vendors (ex - our band from Boston) to make it all happen. The day / weekend of the wedding was fa... Read more

  • You need Mindy on your team! I cannot even express how grateful we are that we found Mindy. From our first phone call, Mindy was professional, organized, fun, considerate, and had a clear vision of what we wanted. Not only did she pull together the absolute A-Team for our wedding, she gave us peace of mind throughout the whole planning process. We got married July 13, 2017, in my grandparents' backyard on Squam Lake. The stress of a backyard wedding was handled wonderfully by Mindy and when any little hiccup arose, she knew exactly how to handle it so that we didn't have to stress. Because my husband (so cool to say that!) and I live in Colorado, we spent the first 7 months of the planning process communicating with Mindy via email, text, and phone. Without even meeting her in person, she completely saw our vision. When we finally met in May, everything truly clicked. She was able to take our wedding from a vision to an absolute dream! Our day would not have been half as beautifu... Read more

  • Mindy started as our wedding planner but became our friend!!! Private Weddings and Events MADE my entire wedding. She executed every idea that I suggested in ways that I couldn't even imagine. Everything went off without a hitch, and I worked with her for over a year and a half to make my dreams become a reality. She was worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. For any of you wondering whether or not a wedding planner is worth it, IT IS. Especially, MINDY! She went above and beyond in more ways that one, and we will forever be grateful to her for making our wedding the BEST day of our lives!

  • Mindy was the best decision I've ever made! She was the reason why my wedding day and the whole process weren't stressful at all. She has everything a bride wishes for in a planner. She is prompt, sharp, experienced, thorough, organized, artistically talented and detail oriented. She was a pleasure to work with, and because of her experience and artistic vision, she suggested many things we would have never thought of. On the wedding day, her role shined even more. There was a storm forecast on the day of our outdoor wedding, but she had prepared multiple back up plans. Even before the rain started, she made sure our vendors setup a tent if the rain didn't stop. And, when it did, she had her team wipe the rain off all the chairs that were set up outside of the tent! Because of all this, I was able to be calm and peaceful while I was getting ready, even with an extreme thunder storm hours before our ceremony. Along with her ability to maintain calm and collected in the midst of uncert... Read more

  • Our wedding would not have been what it was without Mindy and Private Weddings & Events. Our venue was entirely DIY so we contracted the ‘Month of coordination’ & ‘day of coordination’ services. Her planning knowledge, resourcefulness & design skills took our budget & helped us create something that looked like we spent 3x what we did. I (the bride) am a self-proclaimed project queen, but there were questions to ask vendors, tips, & wedding tricks that only someone with Mindy’s experience knows. Month of Coordination Planning: Mindy was so easy to work with. Prompt replies & consistent follow up helped me to stay on track throughout. She is so easy to communicate with (phone/email/ text) & always approached my ideas with enthusiasm or kind suggestions. She truly embraced our vision and amplified it into what looked like a wedding editorial. Day-Of: Mindy & her assistant Ashley are basically magic wedding gurus orchestrating your day. I can’t truly express the value o... Read more

  • Mindy was by the far the best decision we made during this whole wedding planning process. She made sure I didn't forget anything. My JP cancelled on me 3 weeks before the wedding and she found me a new one within 24 hours of the cancellation all while she was at another wedding! She was patient and understanding with all parties involved in the wedding and on the day of the wedding people could't stop talking about all of the amazing work she put into it, how good everything looked, and how smoothly the whole day went. I truly believe we would not have had the amazing wedding that we had if it were't for Mindy and all of her hard work.

  • Mindy helped my Fiance and I navigate the stressful process of picking a venue in the lakes region. She always responded to us within hours and was able to answer my many questions with ease. She has so much knowledge about all of the different options around the lake and she is fantastic about keeping things not only within price range, but also true to the couple. Moreover, she is FUN to work with and so kind - exactly what a couple needs during the process of wedding planning! She's great!!

  • Since our daughter's wedding Aug. 6, 2016, I have heard many times from various guests how impressed they were with Mindy. They noticed that she didn’t make it about her, she stayed in the background, and yet she gave guidance here and a notification there that kept everything running smoothly. The day went completely perfectly, at a comfortable pace, and everyone had a great time. We couldn't thank her enough for her skill, combined with a cheerful demeanor throughout.

  • If you are reading this review and considering employing Mindy and her team, you will be overjoyed by doing so. I rarely leave reviews but feel that I have to in this instance. Mindy went beyond her remit to ensure our wedding day was fabulous, memorable and delightful for all. She took so much stress and worry off our shoulders and reassured us at every turn. Thank you Mindy, we love you so much xxx
