Weddings are wonderful, joyous occasions- but they are also complex events that have a lot of details.

At Weddings by Lisa Marie, I work to take the pressure off of the couple and their family and friends so that all of you can enjoy the day and make life-long memories.

With very affordable pricing and multiple package options, as well as a la carte services, I am able to work with brides on a wide variety of budgets.

I'll do whatever is needed- from helping you chose your decor to working with you to create a detailed timeline of your wedding weekend, running the ceremony rehearsal and arranging centerpieces, to providing activities for young children and organizing wedding gifts at the end of the night.

I would love to help you make your wedding exactly how you dreamed it would be!

Lisa was an amazing wedding planner! It was an amazing worry free day because I knew she would take care of everything on my list! Lisa did everything from make-up, to steaming dresses, to making sure everything was perfect! I would recommend her to everyone! If you want a sweet, kind, but assertive wedding planner she is the one!

Lisa did a wonderful job on my wedding day. Originally my husband and I had a close friend be out Day Of Coordinator to help out with our wedding day, but due to health reasons she was not able to. Lisa was recommended by my mom's financial planner. Due to the circumstances everything was short notice, but Lisa was up to the task. When I asked Lisa to be our coordinator we had a month before the wedding day, so we didn't really have the chance to spend a good deal of time with her. However, in that short time she was absolutely amazing. She was very professional, friendly and always smiling and energetic. Just from talking with her over the phone and meeting her in person I could tell she really has a passion for this. She kept in contact with me continually and was always on the ball. She gave great suggestions for different situations where my husband and I weren't sure of how to handle it. If anything went wrong on our wedding day we certainly didn't know about it. She did a great job setting up our favors, gift table and card table. She was always around when you needed her. She kept us on track with the photographer, letting us know when he was ready to take different photos. I would certainly recommend her to my friends for any event planning, not just weddings.

Since I, the mother of the bride, live out of state, Lisa went over and above to assist in the major areas of my concern and answered all my questions, always responded quickly to my emails.

In one word, I'd describe Lisa's service as our DOC as overwhelmed. In two, it'd be overwhelmed and underqualified. A few more words would take it to overwhelmed, underqualified & bordering on incompetent. I hate being mean, but I also hate that I hired Lisa based on glowing reviews that were nothing like my experience with her. I don't know how she got all these 5-star reviews.

I hired Lisa just a few weeks before our wedding. We had just over 200 guests, & our wedding party was pretty big - 8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, & 3 ushers. That all being said, Lisa *assured* me that she could handle everything. She could not.

The problems started at the rehearsal. The Priest who married us suggested that the bridesmaids and groomsmen line up in a semicircle around the altar while we exchanged our vows so that we could see them. Lisa insisted that this was a bad idea for the photos. I appreciated her input, but I did not appreciate the harsh attitude she provided it with. (And the photos of the vows with the semicircle turned out to be *amazing*).

On the big day, Lisa was completely overwhelmed. We deviated a bit from the timeline & that seemed to be the source of the problem. But seriously, what bride DOESN'T deviate from the timeline? She kept coming to me with all the different issues that arose during the day, to the point where I asked my sister to tell her to address all issues to the bridesmaids. I didn't hire a DOC to tell me about the problems, I hired a DOC to *fix* them. Lisa also became incredibly defensive when several of the wedding guests commented to her about various things that she failed to address, saying she's new to wedding coordination (which was news to me!).

She didn't do things that any DOC should think of (e.g., didn't straighten my veil before I walked down the aisle, so photos show my veil as a crumpled mess). In reality, Lisa did little more than decorate the reception venue. Running out of room, so suffice it to say: I do NOT recommend.

Weddings by Lisa Marie responded with the following comments:

I very much regret that this client was unhappy with my services. As the review notes, the client contacted me three weeks prior to the event, so the short timeframe that we worked together did make it difficult for me to get to know the client's personality and expectations, specifically regarding communication style and timeline management preferences. Nonetheless, I appreciate any and all feedback and will always continue to work to improve in every way.

Lisa was wonderful! She provided consulting to us prior to the wedding and then handled all of the day of wedding coordination. Having her there meant that my husband and I could just enjoy ourselves and our guests, and we did. In fact, we realized that if we had to do it over, we would have purchased her whole package and left more of the vendor planning up to her- it would have been well worth the money. Many family members commented on how well everything went and how they appreciated her work- she was there from set up and waited for the last vendor to pick up the table rentals, so that we could leave. I highly recommend her services and the vendors she recommended were just as professional.

I could not have asked for a better wedding coordinator! My day-of wedding coordinator had a family emergency and I went to Lisa for help. She was able to pick up everything and help me plan the details of my ceremony and reception with only a few months remaining. My wedding was about 375 people, and Lisa was able to keep everything on track. She knew all the details that I would have never thought of. She was there from morning till night and was a HUGE help in keeping track of my things throughout the day. I had so many complements on the overall flow of my wedding, and all of this is thanks to Lisa!

Lisa was FANTASTIC! She far exceeded my expectations of what a wedding planner/coordinator should be. We met several times throughout the planning process and each meeting was incredibly helpful and productive. I had a lot of indecisiveness when it came to décor and flow of the evening and Lisa helped talk it out with me and provided invaluable feedback. She met up with us for several vendor meetings and asked a ton of questions that I had not thought to ask myself (but needed the answers for). She conducted the wedding rehearsal with professionalism and ease, and made everyone feel comfortable with their roles. As far as the day itself was concerned, it was so great to have her with us for the ENTIRE day. Lisa was at the hotel at 9am and stayed until the last person left the venue at 1am. She helped keep the bridal party on track with the timeline that we created together and was able to make sure that all wedding staff were where they needed to be and when (we had a lot of shuffling around with the 2 photographers and videographer prior to the ceremony and she was able to keep everything running smoothly). All in all, the day was amazing and I give so much credit to Lisa for that. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her services.
