  • I just got married this past weekend and I cannot recommend Ashley enough. She took away all the stress I was carrying and handled every little detail for me. Everything from the early stages of planning, to day of coordination, she made everything so much easier for me, and I can’t imagine our big day without her. She is thorough, timely, kind, and professional. She was a quick email or phone call away whenever I needed her, and knowing my wedding day was in her hands gave me so much comfort.

  • Ashley was absolutely wonderful. From the first time we met her to the end of the wedding night, we always felt that any question or concern would be dealt with in a timely and professional manner. She helped make my daughters wedding magical!

  • Ashley was perfect. I could not have done my day without her. If you are considering getting a wedding coordinator, DO IT and book HER. She is amazing. The day could not have gone smoother, Ashely was so organized and had everything perfect and exactly how we pictured it. All I and my family/friends had to do was enjoy the day and night and that is all thanks to her. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!

  • I honestly do not know how my wedding would have happened without Ashley! She was more than just a “day of coordinator” for us; responding to emails and answering our planning questions every step of the way. Ashley took care of everything the day of and we were able to go about our wedding day stress free. I really don’t know what we would have done without her help! Very organized, professional, knowledgeable, and fun! So thankful for Soirées by Lauren!

  • OMG, I had two day of wedding coordinators and they were PHENOMENAL. They handled everything and I would have been such a wreck without them! They even saved my husband and I plates for dinner so we could eat and they put away the first tier of our wedding cake! Throughout the entire night they were so supportive and would address any needs that I had. I could not recommend them enough! Please, PLEASE get at least a day of wedding coordinator and make sure they're from Soirees by Lauren!

  • I can't say enough amazing things about Ashley and Danielle. The minute I spoke with Ashley on the phone I knew I wanted to have her as my coordinator. She helped make everything so perfect for our wedding day. She's very easy to communicate with and responded quickly every time I contacted her. Ashley and Danielle went above and beyond the day of the wedding, too. They organized everybody, helped with decor, communicated with all of our vendors, kept us all calm, and were there for anything we needed. My bridesmaids even commented how amazing the two of them were that day. My dad said he is so happy we hired them for the wedding because they kept everything flowing perfectly and they gave me peace of mind on my wedding day. The best decision I made was getting Soirees by Lauren. Both were such sweet, kind women and both had smile son their faces the entire day and evening. Thank you Ashley and Danielle! Truly couldn't have done without you both!!

  • From day one Ashley was so fun and easy to work with. She took the stress out of wedding planning and made my planning experience enjoyable! Being an out of town bride I really needed a planner to help me, and get everything organized, and Ashley did exactly that. She is extremely professional and always responds in a timely fashion. Also, shout out to Brookelin who was there day of my wedding to coordinate everything, she did an amazing job! Ashley’s team really does take care of you and most importantly makes your day stress free so you can enjoy it!

  • There is no way in a million years I could've made it through without Ashley and still been sane at the end. She provided such wonderful support to me even leading up to the wedding, which some coordinators won't do without a fee. My event was going to be a little bit tricky and she came overstaffed and made everything go off without a hitch. And the girls she brought with her, i loved them. I didn't have to worry about a THING but getting ready. I worried about absolutely nothing. She kept all of us on time and it was perfect. We talked so much before the wedding when she showed up to the rehearsal I felt like I already knew her and we were besties. I would hire her over and over and over again.

  • The ladies of Soirees by Lauren are amazing! We hired them for Day Of and from beginning to end, they handled everything for our wedding day - even things I didn't even know I needed! Every time I turned around, someone was there to ask if I needed anything and to coordinate my vendors. I didn't have to think about anything the whole night! Their price is reasonable and I'm so grateful I had them by my side. I would highly recommend!

  • Ashley was our day of coordinator and she was absolutely AMAZING! She was always right there by our side coaching us and reassuring us that everything was running smoothly! I even forgot to bring a garter for the garter toss and she made it happen! She arranged a run to party city DURING the ceremony and she didn’t miss a beat!! She was always very calm, cool and collected even as we realized that my jr. bridesmaid didn’t have a bouquet literally seconds before we walked down the isle. She quickly made a bouquet for her pulling some flowers from each of the bridesmaids bouquets and tying it up with some ribbon she happened to have hand! It was fabulous. If you don’t use Ashley you’re crazy.

  • So happy that we booked a day-of-planner! Ashley and her assistants at Soirees by Lauren made everything so much easier. Ashley was quick and responsive when I asked her random questions about vendors and the layout of our room prior to the event. We used one of her recommendations for flowers and were happy we did! For my actual wedding weekend, Ashley's coworker Brookelin came to our rehearsal dinner and the event and was super helpful about answering all of our questions and making everything flow easily. Both Brookelin and Ashley had helped with multiple events at the Portsmouth Woman's Club before and were able to offer many suggestions about how the ceremony and setup for the reception could work smoothly. This was especially helpful since we couldn't have the rehearsal at the actual venue since it was booked for a Friday wedding. Brookelin and her assistant also made the clean up super fast and easy for my family. We can't say how much trouble this saved us. Definitely worth... Read more

  • Honestly, I was super disappointed in the service we received. We hired this team for day of coordination. We originally met with Ashley, and we didn’t find out until just a couple weeks before the wedding that she wasn’t going to be our actual coordinator, Brookelin would be. I should’ve known something would be wrong when she got my name wrong at our ceremony rehearsal...not a great impression. Our wedding still turned out beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves, but there were too many things wrong that lead to this poor review. First off, she didn’t arrive at the venue until after 2PM for a 4:30 ceremony. Our rental company forgot to drop off our bar and guess who had to take care of it? Me. The bride...on my wedding day. If I waited for her to arrive to take care of it, it wouldn’t have gotten there in time. So much for “if any problems arise you won’t even know about them” ha! During cocktail hour, she never once checked on my husband and I and never once got us ... Read more

  • Working with Ashley as our Day-Of Coordinator was a spectacular experience for us! On top of being completely professional, Ashley is darling and a joy to be around. She completely took the pressure off of us, including my mother, during the weeks and days leading up to the wedding and made sure the details of our wedding were in line. She is very flexible and communicative, and did a nice job of stewarding us all through the rehearsal and the wedding day. Would absolutely recommend her!!! Thank you for helping us create the perfect day, Ashley!

  • Ashley and her team were fantastic! The weekend of the wedding was a breeze because of her team. They organized timelines for all the vendors and conducted a quick rehearsal even though we were a crazy bunch. The day-of was flawless, nothing that I am aware of went wrong all thanks to them! At the end of the night, everything was packed up and ready to be loaded into cars the next morning. Without them, the day would have been a mess! So incredibly thankful! -The Aledia's (Sarah and Frank)
