I didn't decide to look into a day of coordinator until about a month before my wedding. My husband (now) did not think it was necessary since we were pretty much doing everything ourselves plus he did not want to spend the extra money, but as the day drew closer he finally saw the light that we needed someone outside family and friends to help us execute everything for our reception. We interviewed about 3 planners before I decided that Lavonne was pretty much the one. She made us feel extremely comfortable and was responsive to every email that I sent to her. She was very flexible with my tight budget as well, understanding that I did not need assistance with the ceremony - however, looking back I should have just spent extra for the ceremony because she did such a great job with the reception. Lavonne is the type of person who you can tell something to once and not have to bug her about it at all - once you tell her something she gets it. All my vendors expressed to me that they enjoyed working with her too. Anyway, all the brides in the LA area should 100% include a day of coordinator into your budget and talk to Lavonne ASAP :) My husband and I both agree it was pretty much the best investment we made for our wedding.

We hired SIE as our day-of-wedding planner at the last minute, 3 months before the wedding. Lavonne did an excellent job helping finalize everything. The day-of was an amazing outcome with her and her team's help. SIE went above and beyond the contractual agreement, they packed everything as instructed and even loaded our belongings appropriately, Lavonne's husband volunteered to be our MC/dance promoter and energized the crowd during our reception...the whole SIE team was a joy to work with. The night ended smoothy and memorably, plus we also gained 2 new friends, Lavonne and Wes...Thank you for everything!

Lavonne was patient, kind, and always spot on when it came to our wedding. Considering my insane work schedule the months before the big day, she was an amazing source of support and I could breathe a sigh of relief that things were being taken care of at all times.

Reviews are more helpful with stories/examples so here's a few that impressed me in our planning process. Note that we only hired her for day-of services but if I had the money, I would've booked her for the entire planning process.

- Lavonne drove 45 minutes to meet me by my house for our initial meet. I was thrilled by her offer and impressed at her level of commitment--cause face it, traffic in LA is no picnic.

- Her vendor relations are out of this world. She hooked me up with an amazing hair and makeup stylist just months before the wedding. I trusted her so much that I hired without a trial run, and she was fabulous.

- I had forgotten several details of the wedding, like umm.. how to get the photographer, his assistant, his videographer, and the entire wedding party to and from the beach (only blocks away but parking was non-existent) for pre-wedding photos. Lavonne rushed in, handled it, and I didn't have to think twice about the slightly complicated shuttle situation.

- The Sweet Iris Event duo learned and jumped in on our wedding flash mob. LOVED that they took the time to be a part of our day this way.

Two thumbs up. I only plan on getting married once but if there's another occasion to throw a big expensive party, I'll call Lavonne.

In telling the story of our wedding to others, I have and will continue to praise Lavonne's services. She was a fundamental part of my support system and helped me so that I enjoyed the wedding planning process. She is kind, well-prepared, and will work with your budget to find the right vendors. She works with integrity and in a professional manner. On our big day, she was calm and took care of everything. I did not worry about anything and enjoyed our wedding!

Lavonne was absolutely wonderful in every way. She was a delight to work with, very knowledgable, prompt, available when I needed her, had excellent ideas and always had an idea or plan for what I was working on, she kept me calm and was totally there for me through my bumpy emotions of preparing for a wedding lol, she was extremely professional dealing with all the vendors and kept everything so organized. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner to help me through my year of wedding planning, she rocked it!
