Lori is truly a master in her craft and you will be safe in her hands.

I’m the type of person that likes to plan things. So when my daughter got engaged, naturally she figured I’d handle planning the wedding. I was so excited to do this and went right into planning mode. Then one day, as I was creating a vendor spreadsheet, I thought about how busy I was going to be the day of the wedding and I felt a sense of dread. It was at that moment I remembered the flyer I was given advertising Grand Events by Lori. After discussing it with my husband, I reached out and hired Lori to take over the reins the day of the wedding so I could just enjoy being the Mom. Now under normal circumstances, my story would just end there and I would tell you how amazing Lori was the day of the wedding….. but these are not normal times! My daughter and her fiancé became ill 4 days before their wedding and we had to postpone it. When my daughter called me and told me she was positive for the virus I felt like I had been hit by a tidal wave. I immediately texted Lori and she just flew into action! Lori was able to easily navigate through all the phone calls, emails, and text messages to the vendors and venue to let everyone know what was going on. She assisted us in coordinating all the vendors to a new wedding date – even though she, herself, was not available on the new day that was selected. It was a miracle that all the vendors could move to the new day….but we were devastated that Lori could not. But she didn’t leave us high and dry – which honestly she could have – instead, she arranged for her assistant Jaime to run the day and it was a phenomenal wedding! The measure of a professional is tested during times of difficulty and I can honestly say that Lori proved, beyond a doubt, how amazing she is at her craft! I think with anyone else at the helm, I would have been panicking! But Lori handled it all with grace and finesse and even found the time to calm me down and put me at ease. So it is without hesitation, and with full confidence, that I HIGHLY recommend Lori of Grand Events by Lori to plan your wedding!!

Lori is AMAZING to say the least.

If you’re looking for someone to take the stress out of your wedding planning and organizing she’s your girl! She was always available to answer my questions and concerns and with how crazy the wedding industry is right now, I couldn’t have asked for a better woman to help guide me in planning our wedding day. I assure you 100000% that you NEED her for your special day!

I could not have had a better experience with any other wedding coordinator.

Our first interaction was over the phone and I immediately felt like friends. On our wedding day, Lori went above and beyond to make sure our day was smooth and exactly how we wanted. She was extremely organized & coordinated great with all my vendors making sure everyone was on the same page.
