Stephanie and Team Viva were amazing to work with and absolutely the best! I was planning my wedding from out of state and worked with Stephanie for 10 months. She is so sweet, friendly, professional, talented, and made the wedding planning process a lot easier, more fun and less stressful! I also hired Viva L'Event for my floral design and couldn't be happier with how beautiful all the flower arrangements and bouquets turned out. They are so talented! THANK YOU so much for helping to plan and design the wedding of my dreams!

This is the only company you need to look at when it comes to wedding planning. They are AMAZING!!!!!! From the first day I started working with Stephanie, I had the best experience. She is so on top of every little detail and guides you through the process with ease. I was not stressed about anything and actually had so much fun planning with Stephanie. She also has such a great heart and went above and beyond making our wedding special. I cannot speak more highly of this teams and it was the best investment for the wedding. You will only be disappointed if you don't book her! She is so wonderful, made the wedding go so smoothly, made the decor out of sight, and is the all around best person to have planning your wedding. Viva and Stephanie exceeded my expectations!!!

I loved working with Stephanie to plan my daughter's wedding. She was knowledgeable of all the services and vendors in the area which really helped me since I lived out of town. She literally took all the stress out of planning one of the most memorable days of my life, which enabled me to just enjoy the process. She truly cared about making this day special for my daughter. I highly recommend Stephanie as a wedding planner.

Stephanie and the entire Viva L'Event staff were so great to work with! Stephanie is very well connected in the industry and was able to provide us wonderful recommendations for the vendors we ended up using for many aspects of our wedding. She was very responsive and very flexible, plus her energy is just amazing. You can definitely tell that she loves what she does and it starts to rub off on you.

Stephanie made sure that everything from our ceremony to our reception went just as planned. I only learned much after the wedding of some of the potential disasters that she was able to take care of before they happened. She was very patient when dealing with the wedding party.

Stephanie also did the flowers for the wedding and they were so perfect! I have gotten so many compliments on the flowers. Looking back at our pictures, the flowers are one of my favorite things. It's amazing that Stephanie and I were so on the same page as to what I wanted with only a few conversations about it.

I truly cannot convey how beyond amazing Stephanie and her team are. The Viva team planned all of our design, and our floral design as well. Stephanie even recommended almost all of our fantastic vendors. Stephanie is great with meticulous details, and from the moment we met her, we knew we were in great hands!

I am a bit of a nontraditional bride that prefers blacks, and golds, and Stephanie was right there with my vision. She organized our rehearsal, ceremony and reception flawlessly. I was in shock at how beautiful everything was. I felt like my reception and ceremony were something out of a bridal magazine. Her floral design was breathtaking, and our guests were gushing about the flowers and centerpieces throughout the night. At the end of our reception, Stephanie had everything packed up and ready to go! It made the end of our night so simple.

Stephanie so far exceeded any expectations I had for a wedding planner. The first time we met I knew that she was exactly who I wanted planning my wedding -- she was professional, so kind and easy to talk to, and immediately caught on to the vision I had for my wedding. She was there for every step of the planning process, down to even the smallest details. Stephanie's eye for design was always exactly what I wanted but would never have been able to pull off without her.

When the big day finally arrived I was not worried about a thing. Not only did Stephanie have the day planned out down to the minute, but I knew based on all of our prior experiences together that everything was going to come together perfectly, and it did. I can say without hesitation that the day went off without a single hitch (or if there was one, I certainly didn't know about it). Stephanie and her team put together the most amazing ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Though I had been a part of the planning process, I was still blown away with how everything came together and it surpassed everything I had hoped for. Stephanie also did our floral arrangements and they were absolutely beautiful.

I can sincerely say that I was a stress-free bride and my beautiful wedding because of Stephanie and her amazing team. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

I chose Stephanie from Viva L'Event planning after our first meeting - she was very welcoming, personable and professional. She had a good grasp for what I envisioned for the day. Looking back at the photos, our wedding was beautiful! We have had several people tell us the photos look like they are out of a magazine photo shoot for weddings and that is all because of what Stephanie and her team helped us create. She took the ideas I had and built upon them - making all of my dreams for the day come true. She had tips and ideas I would have never thought of. She created design boards to help me narrow down my ideas and what was really important. She created a wedding timeline that was incredibly helpful to us and our wedding party and all of our vendors. I would have never in a million years been able to put a timeline together that was down to the minute! Our ceremony and reception ran so smoothly - everything went off exactly as planned. And, most importnatly, the most important people to us - our family and friends - got to enjoy the day and celebrate with us instead of running around trying to make sure things were going as planned. Having a planner is a must, and having Stephanie as your planner is just the icing on the cake. She came with an assistant, Jamie, who was also wonderful, and together they made our dream wedding a reality!

Stephanie was AMAZING. She was very knowledgeable of local vendors and already had very well established relationships with most of them which made the planning process even that much easier. Stephanie was always available via email for my endless questions and responded promptly! On the wedding day she and her assistant Kristin were SO helpful for the setup (wedding was at my parents' house/backyard...so there was A LOT of setup to be done!) even with a downpour thrown into the mix. They also were great at making sure the dinner and reception flowed seamlessly. I also used her floral services which was great as well, the bouquets were even more beautiful than I could have imagined! I would 100% recommend Viva L'Event!

Stephanie was AMAZING. She was very knowledgeable of local vendors and already had very well established relationships with most of them which made the planning process even that much easier. Stephanie was always available via email for my endless questions and responded promptly!

Stephanie and her team at Viva L'Event NC were so on top of my wedding, even I was surprised with how they anticipated all needs and thought through every scenario. As a very busy graduate student, I needed someone whom I could trust to stay on top of me, as well as keep my stress level low.

From meetings to phone calls, Stephanie kept track of all of my correspondence with various vendors throughout my (almost) 2-year engagement, and began taking over all communication before the wedding. She remembered EVERYTHING we had talked about, and really understood our values and vision of the wedding, so that nothing was forgotten about or misunderstood. I could trust Stephanie to speak up for me amongst all vendors, and she did! I didn't need to check on her, and she did not need to bother me. We were so in synch, thanks to her dedication and organization!

As a type-A, neurotic planner myself, I would highly recommend Viva L'Event for taking care of EVERYTHING, even what you didn't think of. Our wedding party was provided detailed timelines, and best of all, Stephanie asked for everyone to reach out to HER with any problems, keeping all questions from me. My bouquet was waiting for me in the hotel room, the band was fed, all leftovers were taken to my mom, the ceremony attendants were distributed the programs, and all vendors left happy... all while I relaxed and enjoyed my family and friends.

Stephanie even suggested great vendors, and was a fabulous reference for ideas and design.
