Paula is amazing! She was always very responsive and accommodating, she was always there with a quick answer. It made planning through the distance (CA to TX) a breeze and she even allowed me to send a valuable grooms gift to her home. Her team of vendors and special people made the day beyond incredible. She was there every step of the way with info and names, advice and a smile. Her level of professionalism and even temperament were a perfect match for my husband and I. We felt very secure knowing she was there for us. A BIG thank you to Paula for all of the hard work and many hours she put into making our wedding the best day of our lives!

From the very beginning of our relationship, Paula took the time to get to know us and truly understand our vision for the wedding. From there she provided a variety of vendor options that she felt would meet our expectations. We interviewed all of them and they were all excellent. Paula has assembled a team of service providers that we would call the best of the best. More importantly, they had all worked with Paula in the past and had a clear idea of what would be expected of them on the wedding day. Paula also put together a detailed wedding plan document (a book is probably a better description). That guide became our daily roadmap. Not only was it a list of what we needed to do by when, but it also included many helpful hints on frequently asked questions such as wedding etiquette. Paula is pleasant, efficient, thorough, responsive, and very well respected in the wedding planning community. We could not have made a better choice for our wedding planner and we highly recommend her.

When we were looking for a wedding coordinator, we wanted someone who was professional, knowledgeable, and someone we could connect with. In our first meeting with Paula, Joe (my fiance' at the time) looked at her and said "your most important job is to keep Debbie stress free and I want her to enjoy every moment of her wedding day". Paula did all that and much more! She was every person I could need that day all wrapped up in one! We would highly recommend Paula. Her years of experience along with her dedication shows in all that she does.

Paula was an AMAZING planner. She's top notch, well respected and highly recommended in the industry. I felt an immediate connection with her the moment we met her - she was so kind, friendly, understanding and most of all, her communication style was superb. I'm a super anal, detail oriented type of person, with high expectations - and she knew how to work with my standards to ensure that the wedding exceeded my expectations. The wedding was superb, extremely beautiful and for many of our guests, the best wedding they've ever attended. One of the things I valued most about Paula, was that she actually read through all my lengthy emails, numerous comments/ideas sessions and not only listened, but provided honest feedback. that was extremely valuable as she provided a different perspective and made our wedding that much better. We worked hand in hand throughout the process and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. I highly recommend Paula to everyone - you will have your wedding in excellent hands!!

Hiring Paula Laskelle to be our wedding coordinator was the best decision we made. She helped me with every single detail and made my life so easy. She had great recommendations from favors to invitations to beauty ideas. Every email and call was answered promptly and she was always on top of the wedding timeline details to keep me on track. Best of all - on the day of my wedding she had a wonderfully calm and happy energy that made me feel like I could relax and have fun because she was there to take care of everything. Paula knows what she's doing and really cares, she is worth every penny.

Paula was a dream planner! She helped me every step of the way - and we planned the wedding details for a year and a half! On the wedding day, Paula was calm, professional, detail-oriented and just perfect. I literally had nothing to worry about except trying to say hi to all of our guests! She was so amazing with all of our vendors and everyone respected her so much - it all went perfectly smooth. I highly recommend her services for any type of party/event.

From the very moment I met Paula, I instantly knew I was in the right place! My biggest worry was, "How expensive is she?" To be honest, I'd looked at her website and immediately thought she was out of my league.I already felt guilty for choosing a spectacular wedding venue, and felt I needed to cut back where ever I could. But the event planners at the hotel where I was getting married kept telling me, "You HAVE to call Paula Laskelle! Arrange a meeting with Paula! Have you called Paula yet?" I finally told the ladies about my concerns, and they immediately retorted, "Oh no! You will LOVE Paula! We all LOVE Paula!" They explained that Paula offers several wedding packages, and that they were sure one would be right for me. And that's why I HAD to meet Paula. At my first meeting, I brought my mom and my daughter with me. I think all 3 of us knew instantly that we wanted Paula to be our wedding planner the moment she greeted us with these twinkling eyes that smiled and exuded kindness! Paula put my mind at ease, explaining that she will do as much or as little as I felt comfortable with. I chose her mid-size package, and was thrilled! Paula was at my side when I chose my invitations, all the flowers, the music...I loved having her there! She would speak up for me if she noticed I was being hesitant about something, and would back me up when I really liked something! And when it comes to organizing and timing, she's simply the best! Having Paula around meant that I had to worry about nothing! She was on top of everything! I received gentle reminders from her each time a due date approached, so I was never late on anything. Really! She made it so easy! To this day, I endearingly refer to her as my Fairy Godmother!! I am so happy I wised up and called her, so over the moon with how wonderful our wedding turned out...sigh...and so happy with each step of the process. My wedding day was truly flawless, thanks to Paula! To this day, I miss my Fairy Godmother!

Where do I start? Over the last year I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you in creating the most wonderful wedding a bride could ever desire. Your attention to detail and uncompromising expertise made our "big" day a relaxing and truly incredible event to remember. The ceremony was amazing, and when we walked into the venue it took my breath away! All the planning, appointments, tastings, laughs and research you facilitated made the wedding better than anything I could dream of.

Our family and friends keep talking about how we "raised the bar" for a marriage celebration. We have you to thank for this!!!

If you ever need a recommendation you could give my number or Mom's to anyone! For that matter you could use the testament of almost 180 guests from our wedding!

Dustin and I want to again thank you for being the very best Wedding Consultant, Planner, Designer, Professional, Wonderful Person and True Friend a couple could ask for!

We love you,


Kelly and Dustin Densmore
