I cannot say enough good things about Island Life Events! The owner, Elizabeth, is an absolute rock star! Truly, there are not words of praise I could use to describe my experience! She turned my vision into the wedding of dreams-actually, better than any thing I ever dreamed of. We literally just showed up! From day one she was on it- prompt, available, organized, creative, easy to talk to- every single little detail was addressed and taken care of for me. In addition, she was extremely caring, she never once made me feel like I was asking for too much (not to mention she planned my wedding in 8 weeks). Elizabeth has great relationships with all of the best vendors. Everyone she recommended was incredible! She is so passionate about what she does and it is clear that she puts her heart and soul into every event! Like I said, to say that I HIGHLY recommend Island Life Events is an understatement! You would be making a big mistake choosing anyone else to plan your special day. More...

Elizabeth Seligman and her assistant Sarah were essential to the success of our wedding. Elizabeth was an invaluable resource as we planned my daughter's wedding in Florida from Delaware. She knew vendors and had great ideas on how to make our wedding run smoothly. Her presence during the day of the ceremony saved me (the mother of the bride) from so many headaches and last minute details. Instead of being distracted by vendor questions, Elizabeth handled it all. I high recommend her. More...

I was nervous about planning my wedding from a distance, especially because I didn’t meet my day-of coordinator until my wedding day. I went by the venue to make sure everything was being set up properly and immediately realized I wasn’t needed at all- Elizabeth had the whole thing under control, and the night came off without a hitch. This was probably the best money we spent for our wedding. More...

Liz is amazing, always makes herself available when needed, and is super professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone having their wedding in South Florida, or The Keys. When we host another event down south- Island Life Events will be the first people we call! More...

I absolutely loved working with Island Life Events, specially Liz and Sarah! Planning a destination wedding can be difficult but they made it so easy. I explained my vision and they provided great recommendations for vendors, were very organized, and made my day so special. I highly recommend Island Life Events. More...

Liz and her team at Island Life Events are absolutely amazing!! Planning a destination wedding would not have been possible for us without them. Liz answered every email/text you name it within minutes with any questions or freak outs I was having. When we had one vendor late Shauntel was on the phone immediately checking on the situation. Our wedding was so beautiful all thanks to them and the set up!!! Thank you Liz and team!! More...

Elizabeth was nothing short of amazing. I could just enjoy our day and let her worry about the organization. She was so lovely to work with. I can't recommend her enough!

We used Island Life Events for our wedding this past Saturday. Our coordinator, Sarah, was AMAZING! She was on top of everything, made the entire process stress free and seamless, and she was a pleasure to work with. We could not have done it without her and HIGHLY recommend ILE! We also have to express our gratitude to the owner, Liz, who really took time and explained everything from the start and made the contracting part of the process so easy! Island Life Events are on top of everything and really know how to make a Bride feel at ease. More...

Liz and Sarah are amazing! We booked Island Life Events in mid 2017 for our planned Feb 18 wedding. Due to Hurricane Irma, we postponed our wedding another year. Liz worked with us every step of the way and had no problem rescheduling our day with us. She even offered to help us find another venue because ours had severe damage. They went out of their way and helped many brides find other venues since so many of the resorts were shut down due to Irma. Liz helped me with a lot of ideas and kept me on track. Sarah took over in a few weeks before the day of and without her, I would have been lost. She kept all the venders in line and on schedule. Anything I was concerned with, she took care of immediately. She was there every step of the way. On the wedding day she was there early, she did all the decorations (beautifully), made sure everyone was where they should be, and she stayed till the very end of the night. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and they made my day absolutely perfect. More...

As someone who is more of a big picture thinker, I was dreading planning all the details of a wedding with 120 guests. Elizabeth and her team were a lifesaver from start to finish. My wedding was beautiful, better than I envisioned. The day of, I was relatively stress-free because I knew she had it under control. Thank you!!!! Linsey & Hector More...

Liz was amazing onsite and leading up to our wedding. I trusted her and her recommendations for vendors immediately. I chose to leave all the planning decisions in her hands and I was very impressed and not stressed! I would highly recommend doing the full package with her so you can enjoy your wedding and the lead up. Her prices are super affordable and beyond what you receive. I can’t say enough and am telling all my friends getting married to use her. She’s no bs, and that’s a good thing! More...

We chose Island Life Events for a day of wedding planner. We got so much more than we thought we would! Liz kept in touch through emails and phone calls leading up to our event. After the hurricane, Liz quickly called us up asking how we were doing and inquiring about the status of our venue and if there was anything she could do to help. She helped us secure rentals and provided us with ‘homework’ that really helped us to think about every aspect of our day. Sarah came for our rehearsal dinner and was our planner for the day of the wedding. She was present all day making sure everything was perfect for us. We had nothing to worry about! Liz and Sarah were both professional and very personable! More...

I do not know where to begin!!! My husband and I had a great feeling about her the moment we set up our preliminary call. She provided us all the possible vendors we can choose from and still was super open and accommodating when I found my own and did her own research to provide us more outside of her list. She gave her opinion when solicited and provided guidance when needed. Liz always made sure everything was aligned and if we ever had issues , she was on it like white on rice!!! We had things solved before we even knew it was an issue! We enjoyed every second with her and she made our dream wedding come true. Thank you Liz for everything and we hope to keep in touch in the future!!!! You are a rockstar and we love you forever!! More...

If you hire them, request Sarah! As my wedding was pretty small with not a ton of "extras" and detail, I decided to go with a day-of planner instead of one throughout the whole process. It was the best decision I made for the entire wedding. The day of the wedding, we realized that there was a 50% chance there was going to be rain (every girl with an outdoor wedding's nightmare!!). As I was going off the deep end, Sarah calmed me down and helped devise a plan that was our best option. She coordinated everything last-minute with the venue and the vendors and everything was perfect. She's confident in her role and very professional, and best of all she really, really cares about making it the best day of your life. The day wouldn't have been what it was without her :) More...

Liz and her team are locals to the Keys. I chose them based off their experience with my venue and all the vendors. I used Liz for Full-Time planner, helping to coordinate and choose local vendors. Extremely prompt when responding to emails and truly made our day perfect and seamless. If you are getting married in South Florida, Liz and her team will make your day 100% less stressful and perfect! More...

Liz was amazing from the get go! I had already picked The Postcard Inn to have my wedding as well as a few other vendors and she was unbelievably helpful throughout the process. Hurricane Irma hit a year prior to our wedding and we were assured The Postcard Inn would be available for our wedding date (September 29th). However, when my aunt called to make a reservation a few months in advance, she was told by the reservation hotline the resort would NOT be open until sometime in October. After she told me I called Liz in a hurry. She answered my call quickly and responded with "I'm in the grocery store, let me check out and I will start making some phone calls". Within 30 minutes she called me back with options to move our wedding. We decided to move it to Amara Cay. She contacted all the vendors regarding the move & was available anytime I needed her, even the day after the wedding when we had issues finding our decorations.
I also can't say enough about her daughter, Sarah. Sarah walked us through our rehearsal and was there for us during our whole wedding. Although Liz had some other obligations, she made sure she was there for our ceremony. Good thing her and Sarah were there for the ceremony because as SOON as I walked down the aisle, it began to poor down rain. Everyone ran inside the lobby of Amara Cay and waited for the shower to pass as Liz, Sarah, and the Amara Cay team wiped down the chairs to "re-do" our ceremony. Liz and her team were AMAZING and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to help plan our special day.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for all that you did!

Liz was an amazing wedding planner and day of coordinator. I booked my venue before it had even opened and since she was local she was able to check out the venue and update me on the progress. Her local connections to vendors made my long distance planning from New York so much easier. I would definitely recommend Liz for your wedding. She is extremely flexible and always available to chat about the details. More...

Liz was fantastic from the moment we met her! She helped us plan from afar and even allowed us to ship packages to her so we didn't have to bring everything from Europe. Plus, video chats with our venue and our florist really helped us feel comfortable and excited about our wedding! Thank you so much for everything! More...

Liz helped my daughter and I plan her wedding at a private residence on Marathon Key. It was a small, family wedding, and we relied upon Liz to help us secure local vendors near Marathon for our event. She was fantastic. The vendor's she provided turned out to be topnotch and very professional. Liz coordinated for us on my daughter's wedding day and totally relieved any stress for myself and my sweet bride. The wedding was perfect and Liz was a big part of our success!! More...

Liz was wonderful in every way. She was super helpful, organized and from the moment she first contacted me prior to the wedding, she was able to grasp exactly what I was looking for on the day. At our rehearsal, she took charge and understood what needed to be done. The wedding day itself, her attention to detail and service were amazing, She made the venue look just how I imagined it could and even made suggestions to make things look better than I could imagine. 10/10 :) More...

I hired Liz as my planner for my 3 wedding events at Playa Largo in Key Largo. My wedding was last weekend 5/19/18, we also had a rehearsal bbq on Friday 5/18 and a brunch on 5/20. I could not have asked for a better experience. Liz was available to me every step of the way and her and Sarah made our day perfect! I followed her recommendations for hair/make up, music, photography, and florist which I am SO glad I did! Every person we hired was awesome. Upon meeting Liz when we visited back in November, I could tell she was Veryyy experienced and professional. Even though she probably works 10 weddings a week, she responded to me almost immediately every time I needed her. Having a destination wedding can make some couples feel uneasy as we didn't really know what to expect. That is why there are people like Liz and Sarah. Sarah was our "day of" coordinator due to the high volume of weddings Liz had that weekend. Sarah is so professional and very sweet. She also was always available to me and would text me back almost immediately when I had any last minute questions. There was a lot of rain in the forecast at the start of our trip. I told Liz and Sarah that I reallyyy wanted my rehearsal bbq outside last friday and they worked with the resort to make it happen. I was so happy when I saw my tables set up on the beach, I almost cried. The weather and the whole event ended up being perfect. I could go on and on but honestly these planners know what they are doing and will not disappoint!! Let them take care of everything for you so you can truly relax and enjoy your destination wedding like we did. Thank you so much Sarah and Liz, you made our wedding weekend perfect! Love, Michelle & Mike More...

Liz was a fabulous planner and executor for our wedding! She understood our vibe and style immediately, and introduced us to the vendors and venues that would be the best fit for our us. We love that she's very straight forward and direct, she's not going to sugar coat anything or give you the runaround.

On the weekend of the event Liz and her team worked tirelessly to deliver on a perfect wedding day -- all with a smile on her face and while making sure we, the wedding party, were having fun and were relaxed. Everything went off without a hitch, thanks to Liz, who ironed out more than one snafu without any of our guests even noticing.

Liz and Sarah did an incredible job helping us plan and coordinate our wedding! Our contact at our wedding venue, Playa Largo Resort & Spa, highly recommended Island Life Events for planning services and we're so grateful for the reference. Liz had the patience and expertise to guide us through every detail of planning our three-day wedding weekend. There are SO many aspects of a wedding to keep track of that it can be overwhelming, but Liz managed to make the process manageable and even enjoyable! She had a direct, confident attitude while answering my endless questions and consistently steered me in the right direction. For example, when I was anxious about the chance of rain ruining our plans for a beach ceremony, she thoroughly walked me through the back-up plan while calming me down. Sarah was our day-of coordinator who also did a tremendous job making sure everything ran smoothly during our big day. It took the pressure off me completely so I could enjoy our wedding. So grateful for everything they've done for me :). More...

Yes, yes yes! Liz at Island Life Events is the absolute best! She made my wedding day magical from start to finish. Her attention to detail, artistic flair, her amazing vendors and contacts, and her professionalism was stellar. Liz drove all over south Florida to get me the best deals. I trusted her decision making skills and her creative concepts. When vendors would tell me “no” she fought to make it happen, and it always did. For almost a year we planned my destination wedding and she made everything seamless and fun! My wedding looked like an absolute fairytale. I refer her with the utmost confidence. My husband’s will also be using her for any future corporate events. We love Liz!

I can not thank Liz enough for helping plan my wedding. Our wedding day was perfect and it would not have happened without her. She is so knowledgeable, detail oriented and always made herself available for all my questions! Having a destination wedding, I was so anxious the morning of the wedding day wondering if everything would come together. Liz was with me that morning reassuring me everything was taken care of.....and gosh, it was! I walked onto the beach and saw our ceremony and reception setup and was truly blown away. It was everything we dreamed it would be....and more! Her and Sarah are both amazing and made our wedding day stress free. I tell everyone the best decision I made during this entire wedding planning process was hiring Liz! More...

Liz is wonderful to work with and a true master of patience. I met her through my Venue Sea Ranch Estate and after my first phone call with her I knew it was a match. She is a no BS sounding board and exactly what I needed to help plan and stay organized. She has the answer to any question you might have and when it comes to vendors she only works with the best!!! While I am type A and did a lot of the pre-planning Liz was patient, organized and kept me really calm throughout the whole process. I really appreciated being able to pick up the phone and bounce ideas off her and when I needed a hand she was always ready and willing to help. When my venue got hit by Hurricane Irma she was quick to calm my anxiety to find alternate venues. (Thankfully my venue was able to recover in time but she helped me stay cool when the heat was on.)

If you are considering getting married in the Keys and want someone who knows everyone and everything she is a Perfect match (it is a huge PLUS for anyone planning remotely). That said, her business has grown to Miami and Broward... I ended up using a mix of her local Keys and Miami vendors because they were the best for what I needed.

I had my dream wedding on a beach, great food, stunning flowers, chill lounge areas, a Sperry Tent and NO hiccups all thanks to my parents... and LIZ!!!

Liz and her team were extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our whole wedding planning experience. I seriously do not know what I would have done without her expertise. After hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys I was incredibly stressed about how our venue held up. Liz was the first person to contact me (even before the venue) to tell me my options as we would have to change locations due to damages. She had a list of options and contacts for me and made the transition as easy as possible. I felt very comfortable making decisions from Michigan based on recommendations from Liz and her team and when it came down to the wedding day everything turned out perfectly. She is full of great ideas and knows how to get things done the right way. My husband originally questioned needing a professional wedding planner but after going through the process he has said it was our best money spent. I would recommend Liz to anyone planning a wedding in the Keys in a heartbeat! More...

Where do I even start?! Liz is the best of the best. We planned our destination wedding in Islamorada, FL for December of 2017. She connected me with wonderful vendors and was so responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. After Hurricane Irma, our original venue assured both myself and Liz multiple times that the hotel would be open by December 2. THEN - less than 30 days before our wedding - our original venue sent me an email informing me that the hotel would no longer be open in time due to delayed hurricane repairs. I was completely beside myself. Only with Liz's guidance and sense of calm were we able to find a new venue, coordinate with all our current vendors, find new vendors, and finalize our *new* wedding in less than FOUR DAYS. If this is not a testament to Liz's patience, expertise, resourcefulness, and professionalism, then I don't know what is! And, best of all, I can truly say that our wedding went off without a hitch in Miami at the National Hotel. THANK YOU, LIZ! xoxoxo More...

Liz is A+++. Hurricane Irma destroyed my original wedding venue and before Liz could even go back to the Keys to see her home, she was already working on finding me a new venue. That right there was worth every penny. And she was so on point on my wedding day and every day leading up to it. I was a VERY happy bride and my wedding decor was absolutely GORGEOUS!!! More...

I can't express how happy we were with our decision to hire Liz and her team. I hired Liz as my "Day of Planner" but she is much more than that, she really loves what she does & loves to be involved in the process. Liz and Jennie went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect & she doesn't hold back to do so. She is tough but in a gentle & kind manner. She works very well with all of your other vendors. My wedding looked beyond beautiful. After our discussions & meetings, Liz set everything up exactly how I envisioned. If you are looking for a planner trust me she will make your day perfect. Thank you so much Liz & Jennie we could not have done it without you. More...

We were recommended to Liz and thank goodness we found her!! Can't recommend her enough, from how available and supportive she was leading up to the day of, so how helpful she was during and following the event when we had some concerns with how some other vendors treated us. She was our biggest advocate and I can't thank her enough. Her guidance was invaluable and she walked us through planning the perfect wedding that we'll never forget. More...

We were initially introduced to Liz through a realtor on Islamorada while we were searching for a wedding venue. The realtor explained that Liz knew every venue and vendor in the area so we should give her a call. This introduction exemplifies Liz as a wedding planner- she is the person to know in the area. My new husband and I were planning from our home in Brooklyn, so we heavily relied on her during the planning process. She introduced us to her amazing vendors (Studio South for floral, Chef Michael for food, Keys Audio for all other rentals) and made the process seamless. She was available via email or phone always. She made sure all the rentals were placed on time, and was the troubleshooter for the dozens of unforeseen issues that arose over the planning process.
Liz was invaluable during the months leading up to our wedding on 10/7/17. But when Irma hit the Keys weeks before our wedding… words cannot explain how happy I was to have Liz as our wedding planner. I had no clue where to begin when we were expecting 150 guests to Islamorada for our special day, and weeks before it was closed to tourists. Although some of our friends and family thought we were crazy, my fiance and I were adamant on sticking to our wedding on the same date and keeping it in south Florida. Liz jumped into action and we essentially re-planned another wedding in Miami our backup option. Ultimately, the Keys were opened to tourists on 10/1, and we moved forward with our wedding as we always wanted. On our wedding day, the tide flooded the beach where we got married hours before and after our ceremony. And Liz still pulled off the most memorable day of our lives.
I have dozens of examples outlining Liz’ attention to detail, professionalism, and fun attitude, but instead I’ll say this: Liz made our wedding day more beautiful than we imagined, and days before it was an evacuation zone hit by a category 5 hurricane. You should hire her to plan your special day.

Liz at Island Life Events came highly recommended by other vendors, and we are so glad that we chose her to help plan our destination wedding! Not only was she great at communicating, even for little things, she was also a comforting presence as our person on the ground who knew what was happening. We booked all our vendors and our venue without meeting them (except via video chat at times), and Liz gave excellent tips and references to steer us in the direction that fit our vision and our budget. She even did a Facetime tour of our venue so we could book it stress-free!
I'm a super organized person and I had timelines and lists throughout the process but we truly could not have had such a stress-free wedding weekend without Liz. She was kind enough to coordinate everything from collecting shipped packages to contracts with vendors, and payments when our international cards were giving us a hard time and the vendors did not take PayPal. If you're hesitating about hiring a planner or day-of coordinator, go with Liz! Any question or concern we had, she was able to address in a timely manner. Liz and her staff were very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient, and set up everything just as we had discussed. She was absolutely fantastic to work with, and her personality and services are totally worth the money so that you can have a magical wedding like we did!

If you want professionalism, quality, and effectiveness; then you want Liz! No one thinks they are a classic "bridezilla" so surely, I was a princess to work with, right?! OK, lets be real; we are all crazy when it comes to our wedding but Liz always made me feel like I was easy to work with and took all the questions and stress out of my head. I gave her very little direction and she turned it into a full blown party! Have wedding party members who think it's funny to be late or show up unprepared? Not a problem for Liz! I never had to worry about being the bad guy because Liz whipped all my party members to attention! Vendors who aren't doing their part? Not with Liz! She made sure that all my vendors knew what was expected and let them know if they were faltering. Liz is a class act and I would recommend her unconditionally. More...

We just got married about a month ago in Islamorada, FL and could not have done it without the help of Liz from Island Life Events. She was monumental in the coordination of our wedding. I really wanted to do the decor myself, using a friend's prior wedding stuff, plus some that I had purchased, but when I got everything out, it was so overwhelming, I began to panic (mind you this was days before the wedding, and I still had not settled on table arrangements). I expressed my concern to Liz and she immediately said no problem.... I boxed it all up, and with only 2 days before the wedding, headed down to the keys. I showed her the boxes of stuff and she was able to arrange everything BEAUTIFULLY.
On top of that, it was very windy the day of our wedding and our entire ceremony/reception was supposed to be outside. Due to excess wind, we were forced to move the reception indoors, which she handled all the details and last minute changes without a hitch. We could not have done it without her; I would have been a nervous wreck and my entire day would have been spent freaking out about how to decorate and where to put everything if it wasn't for Liz.
She also made sure everything ran on time; when it is your day, things go by so fast and you don't realize how quickly time passes; she kept the wedding/ceremony on time and kept the flow going. I highly recommend her services if you are planning a Keys' wedding; she is a local who has lived there a long time and knows everybody! It was really helpful because she was able to recommend other vendors for us.
I cannot say enough good things about Liz; whether you need a full on wedding planner or a day-of coordinator, Liz Seligman from Island Life Events is the way to go!

I used Liz for a 25th Anniversary Party in the Keys. It was a big deal for us as our wedding 25 years ago in a small wedding chapel and we didn't have a reception with a dance or anything. I was really looking forward to this event for the last 20 years. Another reason for our excitement for this party was, last year, my husband was diagnosed with esophagus cancer with a struggle to even survive. Nine months later, after chemo, radiation, concurrent chemo/radiation and surgery to remove his esophagus and stomach, he has a clean bill of health. Liz knew that I had a lot of emotions going into this vow renewal and from the very first visit, I knew it was going to be beautiful. She didn't try and persuade me into things I didn't want. She gave wonderful connections that she knows be wonderful and stood behind each vendor she connected me with. What a wonderful experience dealing with Liz! The event was this last Saturday and let me tell you there was love in the air. we had around 100 people there and the event went so smoothly. I chose to have the ceremony outside and then set up tables and a party area outside under a tent. I had Trev with Party Trains Event DJ the event and everyone went nuts over him. Liz coordinated me with all of the other vendors needed to throw an awesome bash. Debbie from Floral Fantasies (who provided the most beautiful roses, farmhouse tables and the most beautiful arch I have ever seen, Greg & Lisa from Greg Poland Photography (did photography as a team.,.. amazing), Kat with Island Destination who was the best officiant & Paul with Keys Audio Productions (I rented chairs, outside lounge area and the tent from). All of these vendors are located in Islamorada and did the tear down after so we could just enjoy the day. I couldn't have been happier with everyone she recommended. Liz coordinated everything from the beginning ideas, to the set up to running the event. Highly recommend her... what a blessing to find her! More...

Oh my gosh, I cannot say enough great things about Elizabeth Seligman as a wedding coordinator! She was literally my life line through the entire process. Any time I had a mental breakdown, she was there for me. Any time I wanted to discuss something, she was available -- and my planning was throughout an entire year!!!

She is so sweet when my wedding ended I was sad I wouldn't be in touch with her! I literally considered her not just a wedding coordinator but a friend.

One of the biggest life savers she helped me with was getting me a seamstress to alter my dress 3 days before my wedding!! She also did all the set-up on my wedding day and it was absolutely perfect! I wanted to control everything but she REALLY knows what she's doing and I could never have done what she did. With her, I was completely stress free on my wedding day.

If you want someone who will be there for you throughout your planning process, help you connect with the right vendors, and provide a stress free wedding day, Liz is who you want! I cannot say enough good things about her!!!!

Liz from Island Life Events is fantastic! When my daughter chose Islamorada for her wedding destination, I began searching for a wedding planner who could help her vision become a reality. Liz was dedicated from the beginning all the way to the big day!

Liz has great working relationships with all the best vendors on the island. Whenever a vendor would ask me who our planner was and I told them Liz from Island Life Events, they would tell me that we are in great hands...the best on the island.

Not only did Liz help us with creating a beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Sea Ranch Estate, she also created a beautiful welcome party and sunset dinner.

I always felt assured that my daughter's wedding weekend would be everything she hoped for when I talked with Liz. She was quick to respond to all of our questions and helped us in many ways...always with kindness, professionalism, and patience.

Thank you Liz!

I am updating my review because now that our wedding is all over, I already miss talking to Liz daily. Not only is she is so personable and accommodating, she works her tail off and when your day is over, you too will realize you will need her help! Thank you is not enough to say to Liz how much I appreciated her for everything she has done throughout my wedding planning process! Phenomenal work Liz! More...

From the first time I met Liz, I knew she was the one for me. Liz is a type A personality, who will make sure that your dream wedding becomes a reality. Throughout all of the snafus and miscommunications, Liz had my back. And at the end of it all when I saw the end result, it was amazing. I trusted her and she didn't let me down. Her team follows in her work ethic, and makes sure that you are not taken advantage of. Planning a wedding in the keys when you don't live there can be challenging, but Liz will guide you and make sure that every detail is attended to. I didn't hear one negative comment from our wedding. The whole venue was beautifully decorated and I am grateful for ghe team of individuals who worked together to make it a weekend to remember. She saved me the week leading up and was never too busy to schedule some time for me. She's amazing!! We love you Liz More...

Liz was an amazing wedding planner and day of coordinator. I booked my venue before it had even opened and since she was local she was able to check out the venue and update me on the progress. Her local connections to vendors made my long distance planning from New York so much easier. I would definitely recommend Liz for your wedding. She is extremely flexible and always available to chat about the details. More...

Liz is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She was always there for me during my year+ engagement and had my back when problems arose dealing with my new venue. She never let anyone take advantage of me and gave me piece of mind that was invaluable. The #1 reason to hire Liz is to be able to enjoy your wedding day. Disasters will happen, and she will be there to clean up the mess. The day before my wedding, I found out that the stage my venue was supplying was bigger than what they had told my tent company. That meant that my entire floor plan which I had spent weeks organizing was completely out the window - I don't even know what happened but Liz worked her magic and everything was worked out by the wedding day. 15 minutes before I was supposed to walk down the aisle, I was told by my venue that a storm was coming in 18 minutes and everything that was already beautifully set up for a ceremony on the beach had to be moved indoors. For me this was not an option, and I was devastated. 5 minutes later, Liz looked me in the eye and said "We are having this wedding on the beach." Liz quickly organized everyone so we could start a few minutes early (something I didn't even realize) and we were able to finish the ceremony outside and be under the tent before the rain hit. She literally saved the day, and I couldn't be more grateful. Liz is a great person and great at what she does. You will not regret hiring her! More...

We decided to use Island Life Events for my daughter's day of coordinator. We were in touch with Liz multiple times before the big day since we live in Minnesota and our daughter, the bride lived in Thailand and the wedding was in Key Largo. She assigned Sarah to handle the wedding. We were so happy with Sarah and all her efforts. She also ran the rehearsal the night before and was there early the next day making sure everything was in place and looking wonderful. We had a rainy day for an outdoor wedding but Sarah did everything she could to make sure the ceremony on the beach was set up and ready to go when the weather broke for a little bit. The reception was absolutely beautiful too. We had so many comments from family & friends about what a great job she did and what a hard-worker she was. Sarah was absolutely wonderful. More...

Jennie and Liz were absolutely wonderful! I have been working in the events industry for many years now, and I knew I needed to have a planner there for the day of my wedding. I did not want to worry about a thing. And I did not worry about a thing - Jennie handled my day of coordination and I could not be happier! She made sure all of my visions came together into the best day of our life. Thank you so much for everything! Our day would not have been the same without you. More...

We are from NJ, but recently got married in Islamorada, FL. We worked with Liz over the course of the past year to make our wedding dreams a reality. I must say, the wedding ended up topping our expectations. It was more beautiful than we could have imagined, and we both felt so special on our wedding day. Liz helped me plan and offered suggestions on every last detail of the wedding, and because of that we were able to personalize our wedding and make it exactly what WE wanted. Liz recommended amazing vendors, from food and beer to flowers, hair and makeup, etc., and she was always available to answer any questions that I had, no matter what day of the week or how busy she was with other clients. Liz made me feel extremely comfortable and eased my mind many times when I was stressing from planning a destination wedding from afar. I could not have done it without her and I am so glad that her, as well as Jennie, were a part of our special day. I trusted Liz's opinion on matters as i felt she was experienced, professional, and that she took the time to talk with me and really understand what we were looking for on our wedding day. The day of the wedding, Liz was there setting up most of the morning, and I got to watch her work her magic. She is extremely talented and has great vision. Everyone is still talking about what a special celebration it really was, and Liz is one of the main reasons that everything was so seamless. We highly recommend Island Life Events! More...

Planning the wedding with all of the small details I couldn't have done it without the help of an experienced, kind, and passionate person like Liz. She saved me from so much stress and it was really an enjoyable experience! She would always get back to me and would help in a moments notice. Our wedding turned out so beautiful, all the events on the day of ran seamlessly. I wouldn't have change one thing thanks to the Island Life Events team.

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!! We are truly and incredibly thankful for everything Liz and her staff did to help make our wedding day flawless. We had every confidence in Liz for our day-of services and were so happy she was there for us to make decisions in our best interest and keep us stress-free. With unexpected changes in the weather, our outdoor wedding was moved indoors. Seating charts, centerpieces, dance floor setup, etc were all changed but Liz and her assistant, Christina, made our vision come to life. It was even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined and we owe it all to them for making it lovely, elegant, organized, and stress-free. From emails, text messages, phone calls, pictures, and meet-ups at the venue, Liz was detail-oriented, attentive, professional, friendly, and most important, made us feel confident and comfortable to trust her and her staff with the most special day of our lives. Liz was more than just a wedding planner, she guided us and communicated with us, she was friendly and reassuring, she put us first and made it happen. Hiring Island Life Events was the best decision we could have made to help make our day memorable. It was undoubtedly perfect in every way and we already wish we could go back and do it all over again!! Thank you, Liz and Christina!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

Liz was nothing short of a guardian angel on our wedding day. With a tight budget I thought I would be able to handle the planning myself with the help of some AMAZING friends and family. Closer to the wedding I felt overwhelmed and didn't want them to feel that as well. Luckily, the stars were aligned and another wedding was cancelled so Liz was available under pretty short notice (talking less than a week!). We hired her to help us for day-of-coordinating and she went ABOVE and BEYOND! She has such an artistic eye and vision that even though I had just met her that day, I trusted her vision and let her take it away. It was nothing short of the wedding I had dreamed of for so long. I had a little too much decor and she took the best and made it so simple yet romantic and beautiful. There were so many things i didn't think of that she somehow helped us manage to make it unnoticeable. I'm so grateful she was available and to be honest if she wasn't there the whole wedding may have had a different outcome in regards to stress level. She did a spectacular job with everything!!

Elizabeth Seligman is the absolute best. We hired her for our day of coordinator in Key West. She was amazing to work with. We had our wedding at the Westin Resort, outside on the pier. It was a really windy day and Liz reassured us everything would be perfect. When my husband and I walked in to the reception, I was totally blown away. Liz went above and beyond with everything and it was seriously the most perfect wedding day ever! I cannot thank her enough for everything. The entire day was stress free and went so smooth. I am going to miss working with her because not only was she the most amazing wedding coordinator but she became our friend forever. Best wedding EVER thanks to Liz! More...

We chose Liz as our Wedding Coordinator knowing we needed the "whole enchilada" for our November 2016 Islamorada wedding at The Caribbean Resort. From our very first phone call to the wedding day, she was attentive, responsive, and fun! Knowing the area and our venue so well, she easily guided us through local vendors and helped us make decisions.
At times we ran into communication issues with slow responses from our vendors. One quick email to Liz, and we heard back from our vendors right away! She exhibited patience, creativity and professionalism throughout our process, even when I decided to change my floral theme a few months before the wedding! She assisted in helping my mother-in-law choose decor and flowers for our rehearsal dinner at The Cheeca Lodge.
On our wedding day, Liz was organized and calming. She kept us informed of the setup progress and held us to the tight timeline we requested. Our band (which we chose on our own) was a nightmare, but Liz handled them with ease!
We could not have been more pleased with Liz and her team. My husband and I agreed that she was the best money we spent on our wedding. We highly recommend her and will be forever grateful for her guidance throughout planning our most special day.
With love-Kelly and Patrick Nutt

Liz is the best around. Period. She knows what she is doing and how to execute your dreams for your wedding. We hired her as a day-of-coordinator, knowing she had 2 additional weddings that day. She was up front about the additional weddings and told us her assistance Christina would be with us all day. We clicked as people and she was so responsive. I could call/text/email at any time and she would respond quickly and if she wasn't available at that time, set a time up immediately to answer questions. I would say that the only con is that Liz is such a upfront and honest person and her assistant is a little more passive than her. This is not a bad thing, but just caused other vendors to be a tad more vocal the day of the wedding. Worth every penny to hire Liz and her team to make your wedding perfect! More...

I had planned my destination wedding down to every last detail. Having rented a home in the FL Keys and bringing everything into the home, I thought I could just set up everything with the help of my family and friends early that morning. A week before my wedding, I just didn't want the pressure and responsibility of organizing everything. After searching weddingwire and sending Liz an email and she responded right away that morning. We talked on the phone and I booked Liz without hesitation the same day. I am so glad that I did. She came in ready to work and get things moving. She accomplished more than I could even imagine and I was immediately put at ease. My vision and dream wedding came true! She was able to incorporate everything meticulously! I am so grateful to have had Liz and her assistant-Jen for my wedding day. I highly recommend Island Life Events. Everyone still raves about how great everything looked and my night was great. I just left everything in their hands, and it all stayed on track. Thank you Liz and Jen! I couldn't have done it without you both. More...

I don't even know how to begin to express how awesome Liz is. I left complete trust in her when it came to my wedding, and she went above and beyond what I could possibly have imagined. She made it so easy for me, a type-A personality with control issues, to be able to relax and enjoy my wedding day. I had no idea exactly what my reception would look at upon walking in. However, when I entered my venue, I was truly speechless. Liz had visualized and helped put together my absolute dream wedding. Not only does her creativity amaze me, but she is very confident in her abilities which is something I greatly value and find to be very important when it comes to putting a wedding together. I honestly do not know what I would have done without her and her assistant, Jennie. I truly hope to stay in contact with both as they are not only incredibly talented and wonderful professionals, but amazing individuals. More...

We highly recommend Liz, she was an exceptional Wedding Coordinator! She knows the area and the community very well and will always steer you in the right direction for the best quality and price.
We had a very awkward/nightmare situation with our initial venue, which had contacted us two months prior to the wedding to let us know that they would not be built in time. Liz was ready to go to bat for us when we received this news. She took immediate action in helping us essentially plan a new wedding, which ended up being more gorgeous and "us" than the original venue. She's been in this industry for so long that she knows what works and she collaborates well with the other vendors.
Not only is Liz an excellent problem solver, but she's passionate about wedding planning. No matter what or how crazy the factors are Liz is determined to resolve the problem and provide you the best resolution. We unintentionally chose the windiest week of the year to have our wedding and poor Liz went up and down the beach with the Cheeca banquet staff trying to find the least windiest spot. From what my bridal party said, she had tried several locations and several set ups to determine which reduced the wind from causing all of our decorations from being destroyed. I don't know how she did it or how she was able to find it, but it was almost like the wind didn't exist in this spot. The reception went flawless with none of the mercury glass, glass vases filled with flowers, thank you gifts or dinner falling or flying away. It was the perfect amount of wind to keep the mosquitoes away.
Liz has all of the top qualities I wanted in a wedding coordinator: extremely reliable, creative, passionate in her job, which you see through her performance, super knowledgeable of the area and community, and amazingly easy to work with. You will have no regrets hiring Liz as your coordinator.

If you are looking for a wedding planner who cares about your wedding as much as you do, Liz Seligman from Island Life Events is the one to hire! She has a great relationship with all of the best vendors all over the Florida Keys, and every time I would tell them I was working with Liz I could hear a big sigh of relief on the other end of the phone. She’ll help you prioritize where to save and where to splurge. Then, when you see how beautiful everything looks, it will blow you away! Liz is the kind of person who will go out of her way to make your life easier, and not think twice about it. She was even answering questions from my guests about Islamorada restaurant suggestions. She didn’t even tell me about that! My friends were just raving about how sweet my wedding planner was. She goes above and beyond for you and your family because that’s just her personality. I couldn’t say enough nice things about Liz, and would highly recommend her to all couples shopping for a planner in her area!

From my mom:

In addition to Carissa's comments, we felt very comfortable and at ease working with Liz. We could tell that Liz took pride in her services and knew she wanted to give us the best possible service at the best prices. She definitely accomplished that for Carissa and Shanon's wedding; everything was absolutely over-the-top gorgeous, from the lighting, to the table settings, decorations, flowers, guest book table, seating assignments, cake table and music.

In the planning stages, if we didn't agree with a suggestion from her, she was more than happy to come up with another idea and never made us feel like we were a pain in the neck. She was able to answer any questions we had, whether it was where is the closest grocery store or where can the guys go fishing.

Liz is top-notch and will make sure that your event is over-the-top beautiful!

I planned my daughter's destination wedding in Tavernier. I met Liz Seligman thru the florist I utilized. My daughter and I were so impressed with her professionalism and how in less than 10 minutes, she had captured the essence of what our vision was, that we hired her on the spot even though we had already hired another "day of coordinator". Liz responds to calls and e-mails immediately, is very easy to reach and easy to work with. She was on top of everything for the rehearsal on Friday and the wedding on Saturday. She arrived promptly, worked extremely hard to make sure every detail was perfect and stayed until the end. It would be impossible to enumerate all the reasons you should hire Liz. Suffice it to say that it will allow you to enjoy the most important day of your life without any stress. A true professional!!!! More...

From the moment we met Liz we knew we were in good hands. We knew nothing about putting together a wedding, let alone anyone in Islamorada! Liz put us in contact with every vendor we needed and we were more than happy with every single one of the them. From flowers, to event rentals, to our cake, a nail salon (to go with my bridesmaids) and our caterer - Liz recommended the PERFECT people to help make our wedding absolutely incredible and completely uniquely us. She always responded to our calls, text messages and emails right away which made it easy to make decisions. She even joined us for our meeting with our caterer to help us choose the best dishes, etc. to ensure that everything was seamless come wedding day. Being that Island Life Events had 2 weddings to help with on our big day, we had Christina help night-of and she couldn't have been sweeter/ more helpful/ more talented. She set up our tables, handled all the decor, made sure our timeline was set and basically all we know ifs that everything went PERFECTLY. Our wedding was beyond magic and ILE helped make that possible. More...

Absolutely Amazing! Planning a destination wedding from Illinois left much concern as to who to entrust with everything to ensure my daughter would experience her dream wedding. I had the pleasure of meeting with Elizabeth Seligman about 10 months prior to the wedding and I knew instantly that she was the one to help me plan the wedding. She is the most compassionate individual who is absolutely professional in every avenue and went over and beyond before, during and after the event to make certain I could relax and enjoy the wedding. She communicates in a timely manner and leaves no loose ends. She is superb at paying attention to detail and has no reservations about suggestions to improve certain areas . She will become one of your family and you will feel at complete ease knowing she handles all details in coordinating your wedding / event. I am completely satisfied with her service she provided to us for my daughters wedding and it warms my heart to say that because of Liz's service my daughter experienced her dream wedding! More...

Why hire Liz as your day of coordinator and planner? Simply because you cannot have the day you planned go smoothly without her. She is a woman who wears many hats; she is a craftswoman, a psychologist, a project manager and now a friend. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and wish I could give her 10 stars. She arrived the morning of my wedding and spent the whole day working tirelessly, I don't know where she gets the energy. In between setting up and coordinating she even had time to come check on me and make sure I was doing okay at this stressful time. She set up everything and made sure the day was on schedule. When you are so overwhelmed you cannot focus on the details and because of Liz's professionalism you don't need to worry. I looked around and I had no clue how everything was just coming together and appearing before my eyes. It of course was Liz, she was definitely my fairy Godmother and savior that day.
On another note, her specialty is day of coordination but she helps with all the planning too. It is stressful to set up a wedding from a far away place but she has all the information on vendors and assists in that regard as well. We were not even able to travel down to the keys beforehand but with Liz's knowledge it wasn't a problem. I also really appreciate her lightening fast response time, I was never worried about waiting for answers I wanted quickly.
On a personal note Liz is a lovely person; friendly, polite, upbeat and quick-witted. A million thanks to Liz and Island Life Events!

Liz was an amazing day of coordinator! Because of her, I was able to actually enjoy my wedding day, rather than running around dealing with all of the vendors and issues that came up. She handled everything in a professional manner and took charge to make sure that everything was done exactly as we had discussed it. She also met with me a couple weeks prior to the wedding and attended the rehearsal dinner which made me feel very comfortable, knowing that we had a plan for everything. I 100% recommend hiring Liz!! More...

I was referred to Liz by the Banquet Manager of the venue where my wedding took place and she was absolutely my saving grace, I cannot say enough great things about her! From the second I called her to see if she was available on my wedding date, she put my mind at ease and made my destination wedding planning process a breeze. My now husband and I were able to meet with her once before the wedding and she was so personable and down to earth that he even commented afterwards how much he liked her already. We booked her as a day-of coordinator but she helped me with so many other things in the months leading up to my wedding because she knows the area well and was able to give me advice and suggestions on everything. She responds quickly to all of my e-mails and texts and if I needed to call her for something, I never hesitated because it was like talking to an old friend. She was at the venue early in the morning for the wedding and busted her butt to get everything set up beautifully. You will not be disappointed with Liz, she is an amazing person! More...

Liz was such an amazing help on the weeks leading up to my wedding in Islamorada, and especially the day of. We reached to her as a "day of" coordinator, but she goes way above and beyond that... She not only recommended some vendors when I was in need, but made sure she reached out to them first to make sure they were available on my date before giving me the ok to reach out. She is very detail oriented and I felt very comfortable showing her things I had bought and let her 'play' and put my tables together for me... She would not let me worry about one thing on my day... She was always one text message or email away and I don't think she'll know how much we appreciated her help. More...

Where to begin..... My husband and I could not have pulled off such a fantastic wedding without the help of Liz. We booked Liz as our day of coordinator but that didn't stop her from helping us leading up to the wedding. She was always quick to respond and went above and beyond to make us feel secure in our decision making for our wedding. She was always there to give her opinion when asked on this or that. She was also able to make multiple appointments with us and other vendors. When the day of came, Liz had arrived early that morning and taken all of the information we had previously given her and was able to execute our vision perfectly. Liz is a sweetheart but don't let that stop you from thinking she doesn't get stuff done! She knows how to direct people and is not afraid to take control. With that being said, I was able to relax and enjoy our day knowing that she would take care of anything that may arise and make sure people knew where to be and what to do. You will not be disappointed with booking Liz. Thank you Liz!! More...

We worked with Liz as our day-of coordinator. We cannot say enough good things. Very kind, personable, responsive, understanding, and knowledgeable of her profession. She goes above and beyond expectations, we had multiple sweet surprises throughout the wedding day that made it that much more special. She also had very good rapport with the other vendors in the area including mine which gave our small intimate wedding a genuine intimate feeling. Overall I give much credit to her for how beautiful our wedding turned out. Highly recommend to anyone. More...

I can't thank you enough for everything you did on the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day. It was absolutely perfect, especially the decor! You are so skilled in setting up etc.. I really appreciate all of your help!! More...

I have worked alongside HUNDREDS of "event planners". I own a DJ company, and was in the Keys to DJ my friends of 25+ years Tamara and John's 25th wedding anniversary. I must admit, when Tamara said she had a planner my immediate reaction was ...greeeeaaaat! (Said with a sarcastic tone) haha ...... HOWEVER.... from moment ONE, Liz was a breath of fresh air. She was unlike many I have worked with before. I have to thank her for making my friends special day EXACTLY what they invisioned it to be. From start to finish, Liz was a complete Professional, with a great Niche which is the Florida Keys!! Even though I don't live down there it was an unusual pleasure to work with an event planner!! :-) highly reccomended!

We hired Liz as our day-of-coordinator this past November, and she was wonderful! Our wedding day went by smoothly, and she made sure everything went according to plan. She was easy to keep in touch with throughout our entire planning process, and she followed up with all of our vendors and made things so easy for us. She is also one of the sweetest and friendliest people you will ever meet. Thank you, Liz, for helping make our wedding day perfect! More...

I was looking for help with Day of coordination for my wedding at Casa Marina. I was a Do-it-yourselfer when it came to decorations and wanted to make sure everything went smoothly the wedding day. Liz went above and beyond from the time we first talked! She understands a bride on a budget and made her services VERY affordable! Although I hired her only for the day of, she had great recommendations for other vendors and even met me where I lived (3 hours away from Key West) to discuss wedding day plans! She was fantastic the day of my wedding, making sure every detail was as I wanted and went above and beyond contacting my videographer (who never showed up) and also trying to find a last minute replacement! She stayed til the end of the night packing everything up for me so my family and I had nothing to do but enjoy the night! She is amazing! More...

I don't know how I could possibly articulate how much I appreciated Liz's professionalism and service. My wife and I truly felt like family while we were planning a 2 day destination wedding in Key Largo, FL. We had our dreams and ideas that Liz and her team brought to life. It was a bash that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Liz! We love you.

Once my fiancé & I decided to have a destination wedding in the Keys, I decided that I would handle the planning from where we live in PA. Fast forward a few months & my head was spinning. Being so far away became so stressful that my fiancé begged me to look into hiring a planner. Enter Liz Seligman! We spoke on the phone & I felt like I could breathe again. We talked about my vision & she knew exactly what I was going for! We also discussed my budget & she reassured me we could do it all & still stay within budget. By the time we ended our call, I felt excited again! In the months leading up to my wedding, Liz recommended vendors (all of whom I hired) & EVERY SINGLE ONE of them was INCREDIBLE. She knows just about everyone in the business & will only refer those who will bring the same quality, service, & style that she brings to the work she does. Once I arrived in the Keys, Liz set up meetings with my vendors, took me shopping, & made sure I kept calm & happy. From the moment I hugged her hello, she worked like a machine & acted as my calming force. The day of my wedding, I was so impressed with her. She came up to my room a couple times to check on me & tell me I looked beautiful. Not once did she ask me to make a decision. I cannot express how thankful I am to have had the peace of mind in knowing she was tending to every detail, leaving me to relax and enjoy my day. Thinking about it now, I wish I could go back & shake myself for EVER thinking I could have handled this on my own. She was the most critical part of my wedding day turning out to be as perfect & enjoyable as it was. Saying that she went above & beyond just cannot encompass the scope of things she did for us. We love Liz & are so thankful to have shared this special time in our life with her. Any couple would be so lucky to have her as their planner! Trust in her experience, creativity, & professional opinion - you just can't go wrong! More...

Liz, from Island Life Events was absolutely amazing! From the moment she started as our event planner, she went above and beyond to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams. No detail was too small for her. She really put our minds at ease that everything was going to be great, especially considering this was a destination wedding. She was full of wonderful ideas and suggestions which turned out beautifully. In addition, on the day of our wedding, she coordinated all aspects, from ceremony to reception flawlessly!! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is planning a special event. She was always available when we needed her and her friendliness and enthusiasm are bar none above the rest. More...

Liz of Island Life Events was an amazing day-of coordinator and an absolute necessity when planning our destination wedding! She was able to put me in contact with an excellent caterer and was a great source of reference, but her talents really shine when it comes to putting it all in motion. She set up our wedding ceremony and reception so beautifully with little decoration by using nature as our back drop and hints of our wedding colors in everything that was set up. Liz is fantastic at communicating by e-mail which was so amazingly convenient while planning our destination wedding in Marathon. My family, husband, and I would highly recommend Liz to anyone planning their wedding in her area!! Sweet and friendly woman to work with! More...

Liz assisted us in a number of facets of our daughters wedding. She was an unbelievable resource. She assisted at the ceremony as well as the event. Was the go between for us with the caterer and handled all the deliveries and set up of the tent and venue. The setting was simply amazing with her creative touch
It was elegant yet maintained the beauty of the keys
I can't say enough about her abilities and would definitely use her again
She helped us make our daughters wedding a magical event
There are people who still talk about it and say it was the best wedding ever

Liz was a complete professional in the handling of my daughter's wedding. There was no way I could have done it without her. Having Liz enabled me to actually relax and enjoy the months of planning that culminated in a wonderful wedding. I don't know how people can plan a wedding without the benefit of a Co-ordinator of Liz's caliber.

When the 'glitches' occurred (and trust me they will) she was there at my side to work everything out ensuring that all went smoothly.
