  • Planning our destination wedding in NYC was no easy feat especially from so far away. Lara, and her amazing team at The Privilege Is Mine made us feel so comfortable throughout the planning process, and put us in touch with every INCREDIBLE vendor we used. Lara trumped around the city with us touring countless venues until we finally found "the one". On our wedding day, we were able to completely relax and enjoy ourselves. They took care of every decor detail, every moment of the timeline, and every unforeseen problem with efficiency and grace. Our dream wedding day went off exactly as we hoped it would, everything looked stunning, and if we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing. Lara, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you and would highly recommend you to any bride and groom who needs the hard work taken off their hands.

  • Lara was a phenomenal Day of Coordinator for our 140 person wedding at The Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn. She took care of everything — setting up the venue exactly as we hoped (including laying out a rather convoluted 30-photo gallery with captions) — and worked with all our vendors so that we had nothing to worry about on the day. During set-up, she even ran out to buy bitters (for our signature cocktail) from a store when she noticed they were missing. And, at the end of the night, Lara made sure the event was broken down and cleaned up. Lara managed the flow of the evening and kept us on schedule. She made everything happen — from cueing each member of the wedding party to walk down the aisle, to giving family members a few minutes notice before their speeches, to calling up tables to the buffet, to making sure there were two chairs handy for us to dance the Hora. Lara was meticulously efficient, and she used her copious knowledge and talent to organize a truly perfect even... Read more

  • I am so glad that I found Lara. When my now husband and I got engaged, we decided to have the wedding sooner rather than later - we gave ourselves four months to plan a 170-person, 3-event wedding. Not only that, but because my husband and I come from different backgrounds (he is Sikh Indian and my family is of Catholic and Presbyterian/European heritage), the wedding had a lot of moving parts: i.e. a morning Sikh ceremony in Queens that required bus transportation for the guests, followed by a western ceremony and reception in the evening at Dobbin St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, which included all kinds of challenging details such as a wind-sensitive rooftop tent, a complete room flip between the ceremony and dinner, two surprise dance performances, and a drum performance. Lara handled these extra complexities with grace and a constant we-can-totally-do-this attitude. Our wedding was 100% "us." Our personalities shined through every unique detail, and we have Lara to thank for that.... Read more

  • We had a destination wedding in NYC travelling from Scotland with 11 family and 5 kids.The whole thing came together in a matter of months. I had a vision of the day in my head and initially went down a rabbit hole looking at various NYC options. By the time I realised the task was too huge for me alone there was only a few weeks to the big day. That’s when I started chatting with Lara, passing control of the budget and the day to her was the best decision I made and resulted in the day of my dreams with minimal stress. Lara took care of everything-liaising with the venue for a longer time hire period, selecting the vendors, maximising the budget. We achieved more in the day that we could have hoped for, the selection of vendors was exactly the right fit for our day and it all went without a hitch. I felt like Lara and the team really got involved in the day and allowed us the space to hold our party. It was so important to me that my loved ones had a great time and Lara... Read more

  • Lara is a very dependable wedding planner. From our initial contact, she has been responsive and accommodating. We used TPIM’s a la carte services to cater to our specific wedding needs. We contacted her less than two months out from our wedding day, we had done most of the planning and vendor communication, but we still needed someone to tie everything up together. That’s where Lara comes in, she asked us relevant questions that we would have never thought of and gave us tips along the way. She had a very important role on our wedding day as we wanted someone else to manage the wedding while we prepare and walk down the aisle. She went above and beyond in helping us setup and coordinate both our ceremony and reception. She even made it possible when we asked for a last minute pick up and drop off right before the wedding. We are very pleased and grateful to Lara and her assistant, Erin, in helping us and taking off our stress on the day of the wedding. We definitely recommend TPIM... Read more

  • We worked with Lara for full planning for 9 months for our 40 person wedding, and I could not be more pleased with her service. Also, as a person, she is the best! Chelsea is too! From the beginning, I had an ever changing list of ideas, from amount of guests to if we even wanted a ceremony, and she was by my side supporting me through all of it. On our wedding day I truly felt I could reflect back on our planning journey and how everything evolved from that first phone call, and so much of it is credit to her. She took my (6 page!) vision board and helped make it a reality. We had several meetings, phone calls, tastings, countless texts, emails and google docs. And I actually enjoyed wedding planning! As an anxious bride, it was SO HELPFUL to have someone to ask 1000 questions who was happy to answer, and always new the answer. I’ll never forget the day she said to me “it’s okay to be doing nothing.” I felt so calmed with her in control of everything, and it allowed me to enjo... Read more

  • The entire team at The Privilege is Mine were absolutely amazing to work with. Lara, Erin and Chelsea were all so attentive to our needs, especially as last minute issues came up with our venue. Literally two weeks out, our venue had to move the second half of our wedding to a different venue across the street due to sound issues (!) - but as we fretted, Lara, Erin and Chelsea kept us cool, offered suggestions and brought us to the finish line in style. Lara even coordinated our first dance, which ended up being a HUGE hit at the wedding! Erin and Chelsea were our day-of coordinators and were always easy to find and super approachable the entire time. Don't get married without The Privilege is Mine, they are the cream of the crop!

  • Lara is absolutely wonderful. She kept us organized, connected us with vendors when we needed and even designed my wedding dress when she discovered I hadn’t found one yet! Her calm, professional and confident presence was very reassuring. She was open to hear all of our wacky ideas, and managed to incorporate them in the most perfect way. My husband and I had a 10 hr wedding & reception all in the same venue that our friends are still raving about weeks later. We couldn’t have done it without Lara and her team.

  • We hired The Privilege is Mine for day coordination for our wedding at the Foundry and we were very happy with how our day turned out! Actually our day turned out even better than what we had planned. Lara and her team executed extremely well and Lara made all the correct calls during our wedding to ensure we were on schedule. After the wedding was over she helped pack up all of our personal belongings to ensure we didn't leave anything behind. I am really glad we hired Lara and her team because it really made the wedding day stress free.

  • Where do I begin? Lara made our wedding day truly about us. Our ceremony was intimate and reflected who we are as a couple. She handled vendors, guests, and the location staff with professionalism and class--ensuring our day was completely free of stress. If you are looking for someone to help you make your wedding day YOURS, please contact The Privilege is Mine. You will be so happy that you did.

  • Shortly after we got engaged, my fiancé and I decided we didn't want to wait a long time to have a wedding. Enter Lara! With her help, in three months we pulled together a 150 person cocktail party-style wedding that was stylish, memorable, and utterly seamless from start to finish. Even with such a short timeframe from engagement to wedding, with Lara on board, we never doubted that we could pull it off together! From her great vendor recommendations, to making sure the day included all the elements we wanted, to her day-of coordination, we felt constantly supported and in capable hands. She is always cool, calm, and collected, and was open to working around any of our left-field requests. Lara made the preparations for our big day a breeze, and facilitated a night for us and 150 of our friends and family that we will never forget. She is a lifesaver - we never could have pulled it all together without her expertise and guidance.

  • We used Lara and TPIM as our day of coordinator, and she was amazing. She ensured everything ran smoothly so we could enjoy our big day. Lara worked hard but made it all look easy, and coordinated all of our vendors perfectly. The day went off without a single problem. Everyone from vendors to guests could not stop raving about how kind, helpful and wonderful our coordinator was, and we could not agree more!

  • I highly recommend Lara as a "month of/day of" coordinator. One month before the wedding, she actively reached out to begin preparing a timeline for the day and contacting vendors. All of my vendors said she was a pleasure to work with. Lara was always available via email or phone to go over details as they constantly shifted leading to the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, she was incredible, working to make sure everything ran on time and seamlessly. I was quite nervous that things would not run on-time but, because of Lara, we were on schedule to the minute! Lara also did her job with finesse. She was able run things from behind the scenes with a genuine kindness. Many guests also commented on how helpful she was throughout the event. Our wedding day was perfect and I believe she was an integral part of making that happen.

  • We had the absolute best wedding that we could have ever imagined! My wife and Lara worked at a school together when Lara started “the Privilege is Mine”. So when we got engaged, my wife already knew Lara for some time and couldn’t wait to ask her to be our "Day of Coordinator." My wife and I are both artists (I’m a tattoo artist and she is a musician and dancer) and we wanted to create our own version of a “traditional wedding.” The venue was the Dumbo Loft which Lara has experience with already and she was masterful in her approach to every detail from the lights and decorations to coordinating the ceremony and gave us great advice on how to tackle all the ins and out of having our dream wedding at the Dumbo loft. As our Day of Coordinator, she was on call during the two weeks before the wedding and was quick to respond to our many questions and concerns. She really listened to our requests and was able to take our ideas and stitch them together perfectly resulting in THE... Read more

  • Lara and team were great to work with! They get it, and are very easy to work with. They gave me some great vendor recommendations, and then made sure the day went smoothly and according to my vision. (Also, they don't require you to have your wedding featured on their website/social media, just FYI if that's important to you.)
