Paula was the most extraordinary wedding planner! She was on top of every detail, quickly responded to every email, and never tired of our innumerable conference calls. She had the most wonderful relationships with everyone in the industry making it incredibly easy to plan our wedding, and was there every step of the way to the big day! I simply couldn't have done any of it without her!

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

Champagne Taste ,
Paula Laskelle is the best wedding coordinator , she is everything you would dream to have in a coordinator . She is so helpful; she will accommodate you in any way that she can. i.e. I live 4-5 hours away from her and she met me more than half way . She is such a nice person and genuinely has a kind heart. She's very organized and kept my bottom in check. She was always checking in with me, and sending reminders to do things. She knows a lot of vendors and every vendor we used said that she is the sweetest person and is so organized and had nothing but great things to say about her ( after they screamed with excitement , learning they get to work with her) . she definitely has a gift for event planning . She definitely sets you up for success and a beautiful wedding / event.
The day before my wedding and the day of, she was so calm. She in turn made me and my family calm. She is my fairy god mother and I'm happy to share her with the world :). I grew an attachment to her and hold a special place in my heart for her forever :)

To sum up that novel I basically wrote, what I'm trying to get at here is... If you don't use Paula Laskelle with Champagne Taste then your wedding /event won't be the best. Everyone wants their guests to leave saying "wow" and walking in with their jaws on the floor. So look no further and pick Champagne Taste ;)
Sincerely
Danielle Stevens

Paula and her team made my wedding day seamless!!! It was so organized and went flawlessly!! Without this wedding planner I would've been completely lost!! Paula knows every detail about weddings and provides beyond excellent service for every bride. She made me feel like I was her only Bride and spent so much time with me to ensure my big day would be absolutely perfect(and it was)!! She brought details to my attention I didn't even think of and was gracious to all of the family members and anyone who we involved in the wedding planning process. She has so many contacts and several amazing recommendations which we ended up using to complete our day. We used several of her contacts as our vendors and they loved working with her and it showed in every meeting we went to!!! Everyone loves her, and now so do I!!! I would recommend her to ANYONE getting married!!!
