When we were deciding whether or not to use a wedding planner, my husband didn't think we needed one, and thought we would do everything ourselves. At the end of the reception, my husband told Lisa "Wow, I was wrong. You were incredibly helpful, and helped make this a great event!" I definitely agree, and truly appreciate the help and support Lisa offered us!

Lisa was FABULOUS. Such a calm, comforting presence for this out of town type A bride. Our day ran so smoothly, our guests had an amazing time, and best of all- I got to be fully present and focus on my marriage to my groom, rather than the details of my wedding day. Best money we spent during this process!

Holly was absolutely fabulous and one of my favorite parts of our wedding planning process. I looked forward to each of our meetings and/or phone calls together because she is just so much fun to be around! As an out of state bride, I always knew that she would handle the things that I wasn't able to get to (or just didn't want to spend the time doing on my short trips home). It was such a help throughout the process to have Holly's calming influence and second opinion- although she only gave it when she knew I desperately was seeking her advice.

Holly is incredibly organized and made sure our wedding was seamless and everything we could have ever dreamed. She took so much of the pressure off of my parents, husband, and myself, and we were able to just relax and enjoy the weekend. I would recommend Holly to anyone and everyone - she is not only a wonderful wedding planner, but just a great presence to have around and an example to learn from.

We worked with Lisa Forbes on our wedding this past June. I could not have imagined going through the planning process and all the way through the day of the wedding without her. She took away all the stress and worries. Lisa was always on time or early to all our meetings, rehearsal dinners, day of wedding, etc. She made us feel so comfortable every step of the way. She understood just how special this day was to myself, my husband, my family and all our guests and made sure everything went smoothly so we could enjoy. Lisa was worth every single penny and then some! I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!

Lisa helped make my daughter's wedding the dream wedding she always wanted. Lisa's attention to detail, organization, guidance, input, professionalism were all qualities that made it so easy to work with her during the months and days leading up to the wedding. It took a lot of pressure off my husband and I having Lisa there the day and night of the wedding until the very end. I would highly recommend using Lisa. She made my role as Mother of the Bride so much easier and less stressful.

We couldn't have done this without Lauren. She was our day-of coordinator and assembled the place cards, guest book table, and candy bar. She made sure everyone in the wedding party knew where to be and when. She always had a quick response time no matter what question I had asked. She did an excellent job contacting all and coordinating all of our vendors and making sure everyone had the same plan.

Where to begin? I cannot say enough amazing things about Holly and the team at Simple Elegance. We met far in advance of the wedding and from day 1 she was incredibly professional, on the ball, and so wonderful to get along with. The services she provided for the wedding coordination were above and beyond in every way. As the wedding approached, she and her team took everything off my plate. I'm not sure if I forgot after meeting her over 1 year before the wedding or what, but when the final weeks started ticking away and we she was in touch with each and every vendor multiple times confirming everything from payment, to start time, and so much more, I was blown away. She creates an extensive timeline and newsletter that is distributed to the wedding party and anyone who needs it. This is incredibly effective in streamlining and making sure everyone is on the same page.

I had a very specific vision of what I wanted our wedding to look like and I booked the majority of our wedding vendors, but Holly executed my vision seamlessly. Working with Holly and Simple Elegance was by far one of the best decisions I made. I knew I wouldn't have trouble picking things out and making decisions along the way, but as things neared the wedding date things get rather crazy with everyone needing a quesiton answered; it was so incredibly helpful to be in the moment and not worrying about the details, Holly and her team took care of all of that. Holly and her team are incredibly professional and solved any issues that came up - I couldn't even tell you if there were any, which is all a bride can ask for :) My absolute highest recommendation!

Holly Davidson was top notch! The wedding day was everything we imagined because of her attention to detail and taking full charge of the wedding details. We were able to relax and enjoy the day because she was there, worth every penny! She has the experience, knowledge and organization to run any size wedding/reception. Holly has a good rapport and working relationship with vendors making the planning process less stressful. At the end of the day we feel Holly was one of the most important vendors that we hired for our wedding, thank you Holly!

Lauren Kadel was awesome! We hired her for the "day of" coordinating which starts at the six week point since we had everything handled up to that point. We were planning our Kansas wedding from Geogia so all of the communication with vendors and tons of little details that we didn't think about, Lauren did. It was a huge stress relief to have her and her assistant there to keep us on time and transitioning smoothly. Our wedding was beyond perfect and she definitely helped make that happen!
