My wife, Lianna, and I were married on October 6th, 2012 in our hometown of Healdsburg, California. We are currently living on the East Coast, and were thus faced with the challenge of planning our wedding to take place on the other side of the country. We looked into the prospect of a DIY wedding and soon realized that we needed someone whom we could trust to take care of most of the heavy lifting. Lianna’s mother came across Lindsey at a wedding expo just outside of Healdsburg and was taken with Lindsey’s charm and wedding ideas. We talked with Lindsey on the phone and were excited both with the service package that she drafted for our needs as well as with her fun attitude and personality. We could tell that Lindsey would be really great to work with. From the first planning sessions Lindsey presented great ideas that were really in line with our vision for our wedding: Rustic but Elegant.
There were several logistical aspects to overcome with our venue such as how to turn what was really a gravel driveway into the beautiful ceremony site we were envisioning (and that it became!). The day before the wedding the servers we were slatted to work with fell through and Lindsey miraculously arranged another service team that were amazing and even under budget. Lindsey handled it so well that we never even knew this snafu had occurred until after the fact. Lindsey arranged with the rental company to allow us to take chairs and equipment from the venue to use the next day at an in-home post wedding breakfast we hosted for our guests. Lindsey met with our vendors at the wedding site numerous times to work out lighting and catering details. During the reception, when the girl’s bathroom had a sudden plumbing issue, Lindsey was there while the rest of us were unaware of the problem.
Lindsey truly became part of the family and was always a calming presence when needed as well as just as excited as we were to make the wedding be the greatest day.
I chose L'Relyea Events for my intimate destination wedding. Lindsey and her staff made our day a success. The most valuable service provided was the venue scouting. We planned the entire wedding in Sonoma California at our home in Indiana. The first time I saw our venue was the day before I got married and it was absolutely perfect. I was very impressed with the recommended vendors. The venue, caterer, and rental company all had good relationships and worked together seamlessly. The design services provided by L’Relyea events were well tailored to my vision for the event. At the last minute, Lindsey did an excellent job of coordinating everything. A flight was canceled on our trip to Sonoma County, which caused my fiancé and me to arrive a day late. I thought it would be a disaster because we had appointments to finalize everything that day, but they rescheduled our appointments for us.
I hired Lindsey as my day-off planner and could not have been more happy working with her. Despite being focused on day-of, she had helpful tips, feedback and reached out proactively to help me for several months leading up to my wedding. Once it got closer we had weekly calls to check-in on everything. In addition, she went ahead and helped me manage all of my vendor relationships and timeline for the day-off.
She was extremely fun to work with - it felt more like working with a friend. She was laid-back, but extremely organized, friendly, very attentive and had great creative ideas. She was extremely helpful thinking of solutions when I was struggling with someone and giving advice when I was having trouble with decisions. She was totally open to me changing my mind on things and was right there with me every step of the way. I also really appreciated her responsiveness by phone and email. I always felt she was by my side which helped me stay calm thoughout the entire process.
Lindsey was wonderful. When we found Lindsey, we were going to try and run the event ourselves. The idea was to just have her help with the ceremony. After meeting her, there was no doubt she was the woman to be in charge of our wedding. She was gracious and professional. All of our guests express the wedding was one of the best they had been to. Our day was perfect. Lindsey had every detail covered and thought out. We could not have done it without her.
L'Reylea Events, was a wonderful, professional, and fun company to work with, we will definitely recommend L'Reylea Events to everyone in need of a very good wedding planner. Thanks so much Lindsey!
Lindsey was great. She went out of her way to make our wedding in Calistoga perfect. She is extremely friendly, organized and willing to help in any way possible. Lindsey has great/sophisticated taste and knows a lot about Napa Valley and how to throw a great party there.
