As an organized Do It Yourself (DIY) bride on a budget a wedding planner did not enter my stream of thought, until I met Lori Losee. After my initial meeting with Lori in Washington, I went home and told my husband-to-be that I needed a wedding planner because I was starting to worry about the timeline and who was going to keep everything organized on the big day. He reluctantly decided to set up a phone call with Lori after our conversation with Lori he said “your right who is going to run our wedding, and make sure everything goes as planned?” that’s when we decided it was critical to hire Lori as our day of Wedding Planner!
From the day we hired Lori she was on the ground running, contacting our vendors to introduce her self and talk about the details of our big day. As the final two weeks before our wedding approached and we had final meetings with all of our vendors we were delighted to hear that they were all as impressed with Lori as we were.
When Lori arrived in California for our rehearsal dinner and started to run the rehearsal we knew we made the right decision. We did not have to worry about who walked who down the aisle or where people stood instead we could enjoy this special time with family and friends, and when people asked us questions all we had to do was say “Ask Lori the wedding planner!”
As a DIY bride I had many tasks that need to be accomplished on the wedding day to turn my vision in to a reality, and Lori did not shy away from my boxes of things that needed to be set up. When we walked in to our venue on our wedding day and saw the room set up with the table names, place cards, menus, chair covers, favors, programs, and water bottles I knew Lori had been hard at work all day, but she still found time to check on me and my husband as we got ready for the big day. We had so many compliments about how well-organized and wonderful our ceremony and reception were ran, which we owe to Lori.
Every bride should be so blessed to have a wedding planner that is caring, calm, resourceful, organized and a pleasure to be around. For any out of town brides that are considering hiring Lori don’t let the distance be a deterrent, she could not have done a better job if she had been in California with us every step of the way. Our wedding day would not have turned out so beautiful without your handwork and dedication. We can truly say without Lori Losee we would not have been able to enjoy our wedding day worry free!Thank you Lori!
