After our first meeting with Lori, we walked out feeling so excited to work with her. She didn't just make our day feel special, she made every meeting and decision feel fun, casual and special in their own way. It was so easy to be ourselves with her, and we really had so much FUN working together. She understood exactly what we were going for and executed it beautifully. She took my inspiration photos to the next level. Lori handled all the decor and floral for us as well, and she and her team built the most incredible birch arbor for our ceremony.
Lori's vendor recommendations were spot on. She followed our budget and knew where we could get the most bang for our buck. Our photographer and DJ were two of the people we wanted to be sure we got right, and they were just perfect.
When my fiance and I were deciding whether or not to hire an Event Coordinator for our May 2013 wedding, I remember going back and forth about cost and thinking "is it really necessary?" and "Well, I can totally make/plan/research that myself..." Don't do that to yourself. I can honestly say that hiring Lori from LOLA Event Productions was the best decision we made in the planning process. I don't care what anyone else says. Planning a wedding is HARD. And sometimes really stressful and just plain not fun. But I am here to put your mind at ease. Lori and the team at LOLA will help you plan the most incredible day of your life. On the day of our wedding, I didn't worry about a thing (except the unseasonable cold). We could NEVER have done it without Lori, and we are so unbelievably grateful to her for all of her hard work.

How did wedding planner make your day special? Lori brought my dream wedding to life. I don't know how she did it but my wedding day was more then I could have ever hoped for. She hit the "vibe" I was going for right on and designed the most beautiful wedding. When I found Lori I had no idea what I was doing, I was completely lost and overwhelmed with the whole idea of trying to plan a wedding (not to mention do so in 10 weeks). Lori helped me find direction and figure out what I needed to do. Then along the way she helped point me various vendors that would meet my needs and was priceless in knowing all the factors to consider and questions to ask. When my wedding day came it was wonderful to know that all I needed to do was enjoy myself and the day.
How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Lori helped me organize a timeline to make sure all planning items were covered so that I didn't have to stress that something would be missed. I am definitely an anxiety-prone individual and having Lori by my side I knew that everything would be covered which allowed me to relax and enjoy the process as well as my wedding day.
Value of a wedding planner? On my wedding day I didn't have to worry about all the little details and making sure everything was ready and everyone was in the right place. The only thing I had to "take care of" was following my schedule and enjoying the day! Looking back on my wedding day, my memories are all beautiful moments of joy and I am forever grateful the day wasn't clouded with "wedding issues" that I could trust that everything was taken care of and that things would flow smoothly in Lori's hands. Having a wedding planner allowed me the freedom to have a wedding day that was anxiety-free and filled with love and joy rather then stress.
