TYs from 2011 couples

I just got back from an interview meeting with a great bride from NY, she booked, and as if that wasn’t making it a great day already, in the mail at the office was a card from one of my brides from this year that gave me a big smile, thank you Gigi.  So it got me thinking that I should share some notes/cards/emails that  I have been sent from B&Gs from this year (this isn’t all of them, but gives a good feel for how my couples feel after the celebration and what they felt/thought about me), which for those of you who can’t come to meet me personally/read them in my office,  may find helpful.  The first one is the one I just got in the mail today:

‘ My dear Lisa, a’ Thank You’ can not express our gratitude! and this card is not big enough! (the card has Love & thanks written on the front of it)  OMG, I have nothing but good memories and things to say about YOU and our wedding! I will never forget you and if there is anything I can do for you you know where to find us. we LOVE YOU!!! Gigi and Terrence’

‘Hi Lisa, We just wanted to wish you a  very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2012. Thanks again for everything! You did a great job and helped keep our day special!! Jessica, Leo and Sophia’

‘Lisa, Thank You so much for everything!! It was a memorable day that We will Cherish forever. Everyone enjoyed themselves.  You were a great help and because of you I was able to enjoy one of the most important days of my life! Thanks again,Alicia’

‘Hi Lisa, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know just how much I appreciated you and your services that you provided.  Everything went flawlessly (just as you said it would) for all.  So a BIG, FAT THANKS! I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner. Thanks again! Audrey’

‘Dear Lisa, I’m so happy that we made the decision to have you with us full time instead of a month prior to the wedding.  Thank you for answering all my questions so quickly and making me feel as if I were your only bride.  Thanks for doing such a great job for us! All the best, Amanda & Patrick’

‘Hi Lisa, I can’t thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding day so perfect. It was beautiful and just the way I had always envisioned it to be.  I could never have done it without you.  Every detail was just perfect.  Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!! Anita’

‘Hi Lisa, Can’t thank you enough for all of your help.  We would have made a real mess of it and spent a lot more $ without your help. Thank you again, Fiona & Rick’

‘Lisa, we wanted to thank you for everything re our wedding.  Everything went so perfectly and a large part of that was you. Regards Denny & Jung Soo’

Hi Lisa, I wanted to write to say how very appreciative I am for all your help and guidance.  You were a wonderful resource and friend throughout the planning process.  You went above and beyond our expectations and I wanted to express my sincerest thanks for everything.  We will always think of you warmly! Warm regards, Amita

Dear Lisa,   I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I appreciate everything you have done helping us with the wedding.  I know you do this all the time but from my perspective you are pretty spectacular.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Karen (Mother of bride)

Lisa, Thank you so much for your assistance with our wedding day! To plan this big event for a year and see it all come together so beautifully is the most incredible feeling!  We couldn’t have done it without your help. Thanks again. Colleen and Todd

Hi Lisa, thank you so much for everything you did for my wedding.   Everything turned out wonderfully.  All your vendors did an amazsing job and were very professional.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day thanks to you.  Miss you already.  Trust me, the only thing I think of when I think weddings is ‘Lisa Simpson’ and will always pass your name along to anyone that is getting married. Thank you again. Kim

Hi Lisa, It’s Kim’s mom (from note  above). I just wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for all your help and support for Kim and Michael’s wedding day.  When I saw the reception room for the first time it brought tears to my eyes. The tables were set to perfection.  It was so beautiful.  Thank you so much we couldn’t have had such a perfect day without your help and support. Take care,  Mary 

Lisa, Thank you so much for everything. You were wonderful. Everything went better than expected, the reception room looked awesome.  I will definately recommend you to everyone. Hassan

Thank you Lisa, it was perfect, magical and super fun, we loved it. We’ll remember this day forever. Tina

Lisa, there are not enough words to express our gratitude to you. Our wedding was the most wonderful moment of our lives and we owe it all to you. We appreciate your knowledge, expertise, but most of all the immense care you took with us each time we met. We can go on forever, so we’ll just say you are THE BEST and we are the luckiest to have had you as our wedding planner. Thank you again. Warmly, Alexandra & Alexander

Page and I had a wonderful time last night and thank our lucky stars that you were able to work with us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You made our special day flawless in our eyes. We had such a wonderful time because you handled everything for us. We are so grateful. XOXO Lisa

Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for all your hard work and making our dream wedding come true. Cat and Matt

This TY came in this morning (after I had posted this) from my last wedding of the year Dec 17, so nice to end the year with a note like this:

Hi Lisa, I loved everything that night, I think everything was just gorgeous, all of my friends told me that everything was perfect and everybody had a great time. Lisa, thank you so much for everything, weare so happy that we had a chance to work with you. I think you aremore like a friend for us than a wedding planner. Good Luck. Sara

And now I open the emails 24 hours after I first posted this blog, and here is another email I must share from a couple whose wedding I did in April.  I really am so lucky, I get to work with such lovely couples ………

Hi Lisa, This is Page. Lisa and I just wanted to drop you a line and wish you a very Merrys Christmas and a Happy New Year.  We miss you and hope you’re doing well.  Thanks again so so much for all your help with our weddin. WE still think about it quite frequently and just wanted to extend our gratitude. All the best, Page

The notes below came from a mother of a bride as we were going thru the process this year, ending with her Thank You:

Hi Lisa, thank you so much for meeting with us last night.  We all agree that we have made a good decision in hiring you.  We were all amazed at the information and expertise you were able to give us and really appreciate the time you spent with us.  Lisa and Scott are so happy that you have the ability to see their vision and help them fine tune the celebration.  Doug and I are happily relieved that someone else actually knows what needs to be done and how to do it. We look forward to working with you! Gratefully Rhonda & Doug

Dear Lisa, WE are so lucky to have found you. Thank you so much for putting in your heart and soul, your effort and funny personality made this process a lot less stressful,  With gratitude, Rhonda and Doug

Hi Lisa. Just want to thank you for working so hard to provide the most wonderful wedding for Lisa and Scott. It was so beautiful and you guided us to making all the right decisions with so little effort on our part.  We really were able to enjoy the celebration and be present knowing we were in your capable hands.  We can’t thank you enough for making our evening such a lovely memory.  Please reference me if anyone would like to know about your work, I would be more than happy to tell how amazing you area. Until next time. Regards Rhonda.

What is really nice is how many of my notes/cards said they would be happy to ‘vouch’ for me.  Touches my heart, thank you. 

I already have notes from next years brides, but wanted to share the ‘after thoughts’ from the 2011 brides that put words to paper (some called and chatted afterwards, but that is very hard to quote/write about).  All these written ones are available to be read/seen in my office, as well as last years and the years before, going all the way back to when I started doing weddings in the early 90s!

I hope you enjoyed reading these as much as I enjoyed the reminising I was doing as I was re-reading and then typing them out.  I am sooo lucky.

Till next time
