We did our wedding through Laurie and it turned out great - she stayed in constant contact with us from the time we booked it until well after the ceremony. Her professionalism was wonderful. She cared and looked out for us and provided us with beautiful flowers and a wonderful cake. We had a very small ceremony that no one else would do. She made reservations for us at Steve's Steakhouse and it was perfect. She took so many photos I couldn't believe it. She was very concerned with our wedding day as it looked like it was about to start raining and she moved it earlier so we wouldn't have to worry.

I would recommend her to anyone.

Laurie Thomas you made my wedding day a day I will never forget!!! It was absolutely amazing. I had no idea how it would turn out, considering I live in Las Vegas and I was only able to see pictures and read reviews. I am the pickiest person you will ever meet and I sat back and prayed and let you do your thing! It was a wedding that I paid 3200.00 for and ended up looking like I spent 20,000.00. I was truly amazed with everything that you produced from the flowers, the cake, and the amazing sunset pictures (that she had ready on disk for me the next day on the island). You went above and beyond and even threw in extra free stuff to make my day amazing. I recommend spending a little extra to have the Ultimate fantasy package on Shark Harbor beach. Its a day that you will never forget. I was able to contact Laurie an unlimited amount of times and review everything that I wanted. I even sent pictures and everything came out exact. She accommodated our every need and I will never forget. We will definitely be renewing our vows over and over again just so we can re live that day just once more:) Thank you Laurie for everything!!!! We love you:)

Laurie is absolutely wonderful!!!! From the booking, extension (she was very flexible on our dates), to the actual day we had an amazing experience. She set up everything for us and it went without a glitch. Our hotel room had flowers (the freshest ever!), classy arrangement with a bottle of champagne (the first one), then at our reception at Steve's Steakhouse (classy place), we had a mouthwatering dinner and got our beautiful cake and another bottle of champagne! The best surprise was to get our CD of photos- Wow! the pictures are fabulous. I'm a very happy bride and my husband and I had a great private wedding that was first class!

Wow, what goes on on Catalina Island? We are so very happy we picked Avalon Magical Weddings and Laurie to do the job! Really!!! Everything went just as planned, on time, beautiful flowers, great food, the whole nine yards! When we were shopping for vendors/ Ministers we kept running into this one same problem. Everyone we talked with had something bad to say about all the others. But not Laurie! You can even ask her something negative about the others and she will just keep referring to what she offers never saying anything bad about anyone else at all. We wish her well as her competition is fierce and some even evil. We did not want to pick someone to do our wedding that treats others that way. We felt Laurie rise above all that. Good for her!

We couldn't be more pleased with the services provided to us by avalon magical weddings. We got a elopement package from laurie that included everything we needed even boat and hotel. Everything was just perfect! We got married on the beach and then went to Steve's Steakhouse for dinner and that was wonderful too. No complaints here from us! We even got a special deal and laurie threw in a bunch of free stuff!

What we don't understand is the review that follows us. I am shocked to read such getto language in a review. Does wedding wire really allow this? This can't be the same lady! Makes us wonder if anyone, anyone at all can write something in a review and get away with such things as name calling and profanity? It also worries me that my ex- wife could do something like this to our new little business too.

What is wrong with people? This gal did a bang up job! On time and every detail was perfect. We don't know if things can possibly go as perfect at every wedding that happens, but ours did. I suppose bridezilla expected too much. Sounds like she did not want to pay for things either. Woh, I feel sorry for the guy that married into that.

Boy are we happy people! Our wedding was on consecutive date 10/11/2012 at a location called Step Beach on Catalina Island. Laurie had all kinds of specials going that day. It was hard to choose which package they were all so nice and well priced too. We ended up with a red rose circle love design for just the two of us. It was so cute and romantic and Laurie's vows where really meaningful too. She reads very well and from the heart. She truly went out of her way to make things extra nice. We so appreciate everything she did for us and making it simple for us to do from a distance.

OMG!!! Horrible!! DEPLORABLE!! This woman is bipolar...steer clear and keep moving please brides. I have never dealt with someone so inflexible and completely insane. I do not want to get into the details because she is just that bad. I regret ever coming across her name ever...ever....ever!!!!!!!!!!! Find someone else on this island to perform your ceremony at all cost to your sanity and your wallet. She will charge for every little thing and she is total nut job. Everyone at the wedding had a comment about the way she handled our ceremony. She is a joke and needs to be placed in someone's institution ASAP. STAY AWAY!!!!! By the way…ask other officiants on the island of what they think of her…all negative views.. She is truly insane. If you want a cheap fly by wedding from a crazy lady…go with her!!!

What a great deal we got! We are very pleased with Laurie and her wedding service. She made it simple and easy for us to do. We took our family and a number of guests on a Carnival Cruise that stopped at Catalina Island for the day. We all got off the ship and Laurie was waiting there for us with everything ready to go. We can't believe how easy she made it on us. It was beautiful and right on the beach. Then we had a little reception after at Steve's Steakhouse with entertainment and everything. The whole thing only cost only about $3500.00 to do, food and all! Really nice for the price! Girls if you are planning a wedding on Catalina you need to check her out! She's a little high energy but man she gets it done! And nicely too!

We are so very happy with Laurie and the services she provided for our wedding! Great Deals, Discounts & Free Stuff too! We could not have done it without her help. She makes it so easy! My wife just chose a package & the colors she wanted and the location off of Laurie's website. Laurie even gave us a special and threw in some free things also. It gets better ... Then we just showed up and everything was ready with Laurie standing right there to assist us. The reception was totally awesome too over at Steve's Steak House were we had entertainment, great food, cake and champagne. This is definitely the way to go if you are planning on having your wedding on Catalina Island.

May wedding day turned out so well and as a matter of fact better than I even imagined. Laurie did a wonderful job coordinating every detail. The ceremony went off very smoothly, my flowers were just stunning and the food and service at Steve's Steak House was great! We had such a wonderful time while Laurie made it really easy for me to put together. She helped me pick a package with all the things I needed and wanted and managed to fit most everything into my small budget. Yay! I'm so happy and can't thank her enough for making our day so special. You go girl! Thanks a million, Sara
