If you are getting married in Palm Springs hire the Events Department! Laurie Lund helped us create a wedding that was more wonderful than we ever could have imagined. She recommended vendors all of whom we absolutely loved, she was extremely responsive throughout the entire planning process, and saw to it that our big day was perfect.

We had a few communication issues with our reception site along the way and Laurie quickly responded and resolved the issue.

Laurie is professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about all things Palm Springs. If you want a stress free wedding day hire Laurie to coordinate your wedding.

Lisa was also involved in "day of" coordinating. She is great and kept everything running smoothly and saw to it that everything was cleaned up and organized for us after the reception.

The Events Department, specifically Lisa, is what made our big day what it was. We could do not have had the great time that we did without Lisa to help us get it all lined up, put everything together, and most importantly, keep it all together.

Words cannot explain how awesome Lisa and her team was and how important they were to making sure the day was great. Thank you, Lisa - Sean and Meagan

We had a destination wedding and I don't think we could have pulled it off without Laurie's vendor suggestions, recommendations, and guidance. She immediately got our vision and provided helpful tips to help us turn it into a reality.

During the planning stages she helped us outline the things we would need and also showed us places where we could save money and still provide our guests a truly memorable weekend. Although, we did the majority of our planning remotely we never felt like we were out of the loop.

The day of our wedding Laurie and her team were like ninjas: getting everything done behind the scenes, while remaining completely invisible to our guests. They made sure we were never bothered with any details of the day, leaving us to truly enjoy our wedding day. We can't thank Laurie and her team enough for all they did for us and how they were instrumental in turning a potentially stressful time into one that we look back on with great joy. In short, The Events Department are true professionals committed to helping you have the wedding of your dreams from planning to implementation.

I honestly am remiss for not posting this sooner now that I am back in the throws of reality. I cannot say enough about Laurie Lund and her team. They are THE reason I had the most magical, perfect wedding day. She gave me the best gift you can give a bride: a perfect wedding day that she can enjoy without worry because she did not know a thing if anything went wrong. Not only was she professional, funny, honest, and practical through this process, she and her entire team made this wedding planning thing seem easy (which it is not). I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on our wedding: how fun it was and how beautiful it was and how much it reflect me and my husband...that it is because of Laurie Lund and her and her team's hard work and dedication. I would refer her to anyone planning a wedding in Palm Springs. She is the best and has been around the longest. You would be lucky to land her as your planner!

Laurie and her team. Amazing, amazing, amazing! My wife and I planned a wedding in Indio Ca. and Laurie came recommended from the property manager where we were having the wedding. We couldn't be more pleased with Laurie and her team. From the very first conversation with Laurie, we felt taken care of. She and her team were always available to answer any and all questions we had. Laurie made sure we were always on schedule with all of the details for the wedding. We are so happy to have met Laurie and her team and have them be a huge part of our successful wedding that went off without a hitch. Thank you so much Laurie!

If I could give Laurie Lund and her team at The Events Department 10 stars out of 5, instead of just 5 out of 5, I would! Laurie worked extremely hard at ensuring that every detail of our wedding was well thought out and, as a result, our wedding day was perfect in every way. Everyone said that I was a very relaxed bride, but one of the main reasons for that was that I had complete confidence in Laurie. Our was a destination wedding, and Laurie made sure that each of our planning trips to Palm Springs was used effectively, such that we got lots done on every trip. She also recommended top-notch vendors who clearly respect her immensely. Laurie also went the extra mile by providing recommendations and assistance with other wedding week activities like our welcome cocktail reception and my husband's bachelor lunch.

Thank you again, Laurie!

Laure of Events Department is the main reason why we feel our daughter's wedding was everything we could have imagined. Thank you Laurie! You helped us settle on the best possible venue; you coordinated countless details for us; you gently pushed us to get things done; and, you worked with us through a crisis that threatened to derail the entire wedding. You did all of this with style and grace. We could not have asked for a more professional event planner. Your patience, expertise, availability and warmth meant a great deal to us. You were the perfect consultant, mentor, crisis manager and friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You were wonderful to work with and we credit you with making our daughter's wedding an memory that we will forever treasure.

To say Laurie Lund was an exceptional wedding coordinator is an understatement! She helped us plan a destination wedding that was, by our guests reviews, the best wedding ever!!! From day one, she guided us in selecting all the best vendors and planning all the details to create a flawless event. We couldn't be happier with the outcome!
