I have a background in hotel catering, and meeting planning. After getting married myself in 2010, I felt there was a need in my area for assistance with wedding management because at that time there were so few wedding planners. I started out just offering that service and later on moved to partial and full planning after I was able to quit my full time job and go out on my own.
I think it's important to do something that you really enjoy, and I definitely enjoy all the "organized chaos" that comes with wedding planning. When that moment comes where I watch my Bride walk down the aisle, and I tear up, reinforces my love for this job and it confirms that this is what I am supposed to be doing. That's what keeps me going!
"Where to begin... Lorell is absolutely AMAZING!!! She is personable, professional, hard working, and helpful beyond words. Hiring Lorell was hands down our best wedding related decision, besides getting married of course :) From day one she provided us with a priceless experience. She met with me monthly and assigned tasks to assure that we were on track with planning. She helped us find a band and a DJ that were the perfect fit. Come the week of our wedding, she had everything under control. She coordinated deliveries between vendors, got everything set up (and looking beautiful), and assured that the activities of the day went along smoothly. Not to mention all of the set up and take down that she did for our wedding. So much work. We are very thankful that we had her!!! She is detail oriented and highly organized. She thinks quick on her feet if and when plans need to be adapted. She makes herself available to you, and is always prompt to respond to any question or concern. She has a wealth of knowledge in the field, and it shows. She knows what she is doing, and she is good at it. We cannot say enough positive things about her. If you are considering hiring a wedding planner, look no further! If you don't think you need a wedding planner, reconsider! ;) i do Events helped to enhance our wedding experience and we are forever grateful." --Bethany F. - married 2019
