We hired Laura to be our Day-Of-Coordinator for our wedding. At first we were unsure of whether or not we would need such a thing, but we 10000% did and we are so glad that we had the chance to work with Laura and her team! Laura helped us create a schedule of events for the whole day and kept us on track. She worked closely with the other vendors and even made important phone calls on our behalf when we were busy and overwhelmed. My dress was a bit complicated but she knew exactly how to put it on/take it off/bustle etc. She kept me calm and at ease the whole day even when we were rushing to take pictures outside in 35 degrees and when I was nervous to walk down the aisle! Laura was responsive and easy to work with the whole time. We highly recommend her!! More...

Laura is an incredible DOC and goes above and beyond. Not only did she pull the whole day together but she decorated the tables with lanterns and greenery and provided bouquets and boutonnieres. Also, Laura and her assistants helped me with my gown during pictures so I wouldn't step in puddles or get caught on anything. Finally, she did a great job making sure everything was delivered and was in its place for the wedding. She gave me my dream wedding. You must hire her! More...

Laura is a wedding planning ROCKSTAR!! She and her crew coordinated my wedding day to perfection. You will realize after your first conversation that she is incredibly detailed, organized, knowledgable, and communicates extremely effectively. I just can't say enough good things about her! It is clear how much pride she took in making my day as smooth as possible and she was there to support me with any questions I had during the planning process. She's the best!

ps. Laura also did my flowers. She made my tiny budget look stunning!

My husband and I hired Laura for wedding planning and day of coordination for our January wedding in Brooklyn. Laura and her team were pleasures to work with for the entire planning process and day of. Our wedding exceeded our wildest expectations. The decorations and flowers were perfect (and she stayed under budget!). She helped us to hire and coordinate with amazing vendors. It was easily the best night of our lives and that is largely due to the work of Laura and her staff. I cannot recommend her enough. More...

Laura and her team at Elegant Events was an absolute DREAM to work with. They truly made my vision come to life and ensured the day ran smoothly (a difficult task with a bridal party of 20 people and 315 wedding guests! ) Elegant Events not only planned and executed the perfect day for my husband and I, they also did ALL of the floral arrangements.. not an easy task when there were different size tables and different centerpieces on each! These ladies are the best in the business! More...

I can't begin to explain how great Laura and her team were during the planning process and especially on our wedding day! From unexpected guests to a missing cake, they literally handled it all .
I was very passive when it came to planning and Laura knew how to handle that. She gave me deadlines and options from everything from centerpieces to makeup. She was so organized and filled in all the gaps when it came to things I would never even think of.
On our wedding day, our cake did not arrive to the venue (despite being confirmed the day before), so Laura and her team ran to the closest store and created the most magnificent wedding cake with fresh flowers and all! It was beautiful! They made the day so seamless that I didn't even know anything was going on behind the scenes. Laura and her team are absolutely amazing and were beyond helpful. I can not recommend them enough for helping create the best day of our lives! Thank you!! 5 stars!

This is the one review that I wanted to make sure I wrote! The day of my wedding, Laura was my personal super hero. She and her assistant swooped in ready to take on the day and fixed problems before I even knew they happened! I was super unhappy with the bouquet my florist made for me and Laura's teammate went out to a local florist and they remade it for me! It was like magic. They were so on top of it - my entire family was impressed. The manager of the club where I got married even came by specifically to let me know "your planner is a total rock star" (and I'm sure he's worked with plenty of planners in his day).

She's wonderful. Hire her!

Laura was wonderful to work with! She was a huge help both before our wedding and on the day of.

We had grand visions for our photos and Laura spent months applying for permits for us, which is no easy feat in NYC. She handled the paperwork and followed up with each location several times to make sure we were totally covered. Right before the wedding she checked in with all of our vendors and made sure they knew where to be and when, which was something I REALLY did not want to be doing the week of my wedding. She answered all of my silly, last-minute anxiety questions and kept me calm during the home stretch.

She also clearly has a lot of day-of experience and was prepared for every situation - scissors, safety pins, and hairspray were all ready to go when we needed them. She even had a walkie talkie system set up with her assistant, who would be in another location waiting for us, so all of our timing was perfect. I didn't have to worry about a single thing all day except where my next glass of champagne was. I can't recommend Laura highly enough.

Laura was an absolute life-saver as our day-of coordinator! When our previous coordinator canceled two months before our wedding, Laura stepped in seamlessly. She was an invaluable resource -- from helping us with our floor plan to even picking out vases -- and had great suggestions for any advice we needed.

On the day, Laura and Kelly handled everything with calm, professional grace, coordinating all the DIY decor and vendors and communicating across the ceremony and reception venues. When our table delivery showed up late (just minutes before the ceremony!) they somehow magically transformed the reception venue before our guests arrived.

Anything that went wrong, we were none the wiser - so we and our families could relax and enjoy the wedding. I can't say enough how thankful we were to have found them!

My husband and I got married in October at Bacchus bistro in Brooklyn. I hired Elegant Events for day of coordination and they were the perfect team to bring the vision I had to life. For the month before the event Laura was there to bounce ideas off of, offer advice, ease my mind about questions & concerns and be a partner in mapping out the flow/schedule for the event. When we met, she instantly got my vision for the aesthetic I was going for, and did everything she could to make it happen, w/o being overbearing but also offering a solid opinion on things that may not work or decisions that might cause more stress than necessary. This was so key in helping me make important decisions and maintain sanity during the stressful month before the event. From one meeting with Laura, I knew I could trust her taste and she was beyond patient as I sent her ex's of lights, candles and flowers before the wedding to get her thoughts. I already had a flower vendor (who I loved!) booked, but I know Laura does gorgeous arrangements and has impeccable attention to detail – so would highly recommend booking her for florals. The day of our wedding, she went above and beyond to create additional arrangements for the bars and tables in the restaurant when we realized we may need some extra. Our wedding day was rainy and windy but Laura and Kelly worked seamlessly w/ our amazing contacts at Bacchus to make last minute décor adjustments – I know the day was stressful for them but I didn’t get a single email/text from Laura with questions or concerns, her and Kelly handled everything like pros and let me enjoy the day getting ready and toasting w/ friends & family.

From the very first conversation with Laura of Elegant Events by Laura to hiring her and to our wedding night everything was seamless and perfect.

My husband and I were planning a New Jersey wedding from Virginia, and we needed someone we could trust to not only recommend vendors, but assist us with the day-of planning and making sure everything went off without a hitch.

Laura's expertise at wedding planning and how everything worked immediately put us at ease and we knew we needed to hire her! Laura was so incredibly responsive throughout the entire process. She was accessible by phone and email and we also met in person a few times when we were up in NJ. (I know she would have been willing to meet more frequently, but we just weren't in the area!)

We did have a bit of a snafu in the morning (relating to other vendors -- one of our shuttles broke down!) and Laura handled everything like the amazing professional she is!

I already miss working with Laura. I would hire Elegant Events by Laura for my next party in NJ in an instant!
