I absolutely love what I do. I can't imagine doing anything else, ever! While most little girls dream about their wedding and the man they will someday marry, I dreamed about the DETAILS- the way the flowers would look, the feeling that would come over me when I entered the wedding space for the first time, the way it would smell, the way the candles would flicker in perfect unison as the band begun to play a 40's tune... I am doing for a living what I have dreamed about for a lifetime. I am honored to be a part of my clients special celebrations and I feel one hundred percent blessed. Read less

We had the most incredible wedding this fall at Bacara, and Lindsey and the Magnolia Event Design Team were the reason everything was so wonderful and perfect. The entire weekend was was exactly what we hoped it would be. I was not the most detail-oriented of brides, and the Magnolia team allowed me to be as laid back as I wanted, knowing everything was going to be perfect, and far beyond what I could have come up with on my own. The attention to perfect, fabulous little details was so, so appreciated and our guests LOVED everything! I can't thank them enough for making our wedding weekend a dream! I've been passing along the Magnolia details to anyone I can think of that might use their services!

The set up of our venue was amazing and looked exactly how it was described, Magnolia NAILED it!!! If you are looking for a thorough, creative, and dedicated wedding planner then look no further than Lindsey @ Magnolia Event Design, she will make sure your vision is a reality. Lindsey and her team did an outstanding job of keeping all the "wedding day" stress off of my fiancé (now wife) and I which was really important to me. The compliments are still rolling in on our wedding from the layout, to the design and finally the execution which is most important...we keep hearing from our friends that is was the best wedding they have ever been to which is all thanks to MAGNOLIA EVENT DESIGN!!!! We are so thankful for Lindsey and her crew as they exceeded expectations and wowed our guests with their execution. Lindsey is now a friend of ours but I can say the day of the event she did not let that friendship cloud her attention to detail which I have seen happen at other events...details, details, details make events extra special and MED did exactly that for us, we could not of asked for a better outcome. Thank you MED.

I don’t have the space to write a complete review, so here is the summary:

Her industry friends are in her best interest. Ex: she would only get me proposals from the hair/make-up team that she shared her suite with, even though I asked her to 2x because it meant some of my BM’s would have to have their appts in the AM, the others 4 hours later, & 2 would have to go to completely different salons bc they didn’t have enough staff to cover us. I had to research the hair & make-up team.

The month before the wedding uncovered undelivered payments, incorrect invoices, & incorrect budget tracking. She had me sign a contract for the wrong wedding date; she would approve or forward incorrect invoices.

She won’t go the extra mile. Ex: I told her I was gluten free, & she gave me a cake vendor that didn’t do GF & charged a delivery fee. I asked her more than once to find alternatives & she never did, so I found one on Yelp that had GF, was way cheaper, & delicious!

She forgot to collect my wedding shoes & now they are missing. She has not taken responsibility & has stopped responding to my emails asking about them.

She told us to request certain reductions from our vendors (not her making the request for us) only to be met with responses that made me feel like an idiot for thinking I could ask in the first place.

She would simply forward vendor emails & never took the initiative to act on our behalf & deal with issues before we had to remedy them ourselves.

Never researched any new vendors that would better meet our budget. We went over budget & got 1 discount from her recommended vendors.

While I had to continuously remind her that I was waiting for her response to Q’s, she is knowledgeable in her answers. Her execution of the day itselfwas great. There were some minor issues, but she was able to fix them fast. Her mgmt & control of the process was good. She has the perfect demeanor for the stress of her role; she stays calm & never seems frazzled.

My husband and I were very pleased will Lindsey. She did absolutely everything she could to make us happy and make our wedding better than what we had envisioned. She made sure that last minute details were taken care of and helped us find ways to stay in budget. We loved her recommendations for food, flowers and Dj. I remained stress free that evening and everything went perfectly. She was very attentive to my husband and I as well as my parents. My mom absolutely loved her. When My husband and I got upstairs after a long enjoyable evening Lindsey had a hot bath waiting with rose petals and candles lit all over. There were rose petals on the bed in a heart shape and a slice of cake for my husband and I. It was very romantic.... Lindsey also made sure that our needs were met by the vendors and that the schedule was what we wanted, not just the vendors. I feel that Lindsey had our best interest in mind during the planning and the wedding. I couldn't have done it without her. She was there for food tasting, cake tasting, gown shopping, wine tasting(that was fun). We felt very comfortable with her. I would recommend her to any bride. She is amazing.

I can't say enough about the services that MED and Lindsay Hartsough provided for our Santa Barbara wedding. Lindsay and her team provided full event coordination for our wedding which was especially helpful because we live in Phoenix. Lindsay is super responsive, provided high quality of service, and is extremely professional. For those planning a destination wedding, I highly recommend Lindsay and MED because of their responsiveness and deep connections in the Santa Barbara wedding community. MED executed our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception flawlessly. All of our guests commented on our wedding details, the smoothness of the events, and the high quality of our wedding. We couldn’t have done it without MED, I highly recommend Lindsay and her team to anyone planning a wedding in Santa Barbara.

My now-husband and I had a wonderful experience with Magnolia Event Design, whom we hired as our month of wedding coordinator. Lindsey Hartsough, the owner of Magnolia Event Design, and her staff began coordinating all of our vendors the month before the wedding and produced a timeline for the day of to ensure that everyone knew where and when to be. Lindsey and her assistant, Kim, also led our rehearsal so that our wedding party felt confident knowing how they should proceed during the ceremony. Our wedding went perfectly! We were in excellent hands that day! Lindsey, who has many years of experience in the wedding/event planning business, and Kim were always right there providing direction to us and our wedding party, bustling my wedding dress, touching up my makeup after I was dancing up a storm, giving us direction on the cake cutting, and making sure that my husband and I had everything that we needed. We were able to enjoy ourselves and did not have to stress about anything since we knew Lindsey and Kim were on top of it! Lindsey even offered me her shoes to walk down the aisle since the grass was a little wet, and she was concerned that I might have difficulty with my heels. Not only did they do a fantastic job, but Lindsey and Kim were such a blast to work with from the very beginning. Lindsey is very knowledgeable and has a warm and energetic personality. She was very responsive to questions that we had throughout our wedding planning process, including vendor recommendations, hotel options for our guests, and suggestions for places in downtown Santa Barbara to hold an afterparty. We are very appreciative of all that Lindsey and her staff at Magnolia Event Design did to make our wedding day go off without a hitch!

I can't say enough amazing things about Lindsey, Niki, and their spectacular team. We asked Magnolia Event Design take over all aspects of our wedding and help us enjoy the day. Anytime I had a moment of doubt or question, Lindsey was there with a quick response back either on email or phone.
Lindsey and team went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I had everything and anything we needed, from helping us with all getting ready needs to helping our florist with arrangements to keeping all our vendors on a tight schedule. Our wedding day was totally stress free and perfect all because of Magnolia Event Design.
