my name is
Owner, Certified Planner through Certified Wedding Planner Society, and your lead wedding coordinator with Grand Events By Lori.
Creating unforgettable moments that celebrate your love story.
How lucky are we, to be able to do something we love, and meet amazing brides along the way!
Hello there! I’m thrilled to introduce myself as a wedding planner based in sunny Florida, where I help couples create the wedding of their dreams. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my approach to wedding planning.
First and foremost, I’m a people person. I absolutely love getting to know my clients and building a relationship with them. By understanding your unique personalities and visions, I can create a wedding day flow that is completely tailored to your individual style and preferences. From the big picture down to the tiniest details, I’m committed to making sure every aspect of your special day reflects who you are as a couple.
At the same time, I bring a high level of professionalism to every project. I understand that wedding planning can be stressful, and my goal is to take the burden off of you and make the process as smooth and easy as possible. With years of experience in the industry, I have the knowledge and expertise to handle any situation that may arise, so you can relax and enjoy your engagement and wedding day.
But just because I’m professional doesn’t mean I’m not fun! I believe that planning a wedding should be a joyous experience, and I bring a sense of playfulness and creativity to everything I do. Whether it’s working alongside your florist, DJ, and venue, or helping you choose your menu, I love working with my clients to bring their vision to life in new and exciting ways.
Overall, I think my clients appreciate my friendly, approachable demeanor, as well as my ability to balance professionalism and organization. I truly love what I do and feel so grateful to be able to help couples make their dream wedding a reality. So, if you’re looking for a wedding coordinator who will be your partner, your guide, and your friend throughout the planning process, I would be honored to work with you!

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.
