What inspired you to launch your own business?

I started planning events in 1999 while working for a local trade association, so I've always had a love for the logistics that go into executing events. In 2005, I took on the task of planning my own wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the process, however, I realized I would have benefited greatly from having an experienced wedding planner by my side to assist with the key details. Because of that experience, I became the person who was always eagerly volunteering my time to assist others to have the event of their dreams. In 2019, after providing full-scale planning services for three weddings within a 7-month span, I decided to take a leap of faith and start my business in June of that year and I'm so happy I did.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Seeing the joy on our couple's faces and the excitement from the guests keeps me going.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"We had amazing luck when it came to hiring vendors. They all worked well together and set an amazing vibe for our wedding! Dot Every I Events is simply the BEST coordinator out there. After postponing our wedding a few times due to COVID, we decided we needed assistance and placed our wedding in the extremely capable hands of Lori Corker-Hall. We were so LUCKY to have found Lori through a vendor referral from our caterer. Lori went to work on our wedding, picking up where we had left off with vendors, really pulling everything together for us and truly helping our dream day become a reality! No detail was overlooked by this fabulous team! The communication was phenomenal! Lori and her team arriving earlier than she needed to, coordinating with our vendors and the venue to execute the most beautiful and FLAWLESS wedding. Honestly, there are few words to adequately describe Lori and what she means to Joe and me. We couldn't have imagined our day without her. She was a beacon of trust, strength, stability, and was always 100% in control and executing all the planning we had done. She knew how nervous and anxious we were and helped us make decisions quickly and confidently. She truly never wavered or flustered (even when we arrived over an hour later to our wedding). She was SO excellent, I had people coming up to me saying 'Wow is that your coordinator, she is ON TOP OF IT'. They made us feel like royalty! We are truly grateful to Lori, and the DEI team for making our dream day a reality." --Joesph & Holly Banks - 11.6.2021
