2014 thank yous

Here’s some snippets from emails and cards I got after …………………


Thank you so much for all your help making our wedding the day we’ve always dreamed of.  Everything from start to finish surpassed our expectations making our wedding day one that we will ever forget.  Every detail was absolute perfection! The ceremony site, the venue, the food and all of the vendors and support staff were absolutely amazing. Over and over last night through today we have continued to hear repeatedly from guests how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and most importantly, how our wedding was.

Although Kim and I both shared the vision for our wedding day, we could not have made that day possible without you.  And for that we are eternally grateful to you for making our dream a reality.  Thank you again.  Trent and Kimberly

Note from Lisa: Trent contacted me and before signing at St Regis, shared his budget and their vision to me, they did not gel. But that is the beauty of flexibility.  By being flexible they got the venue they wanted.  I was able to match them to vendors who were happy to work with their vision/budget, and voila,  a happy end result for all.

Lisa, How are you and beautiful CA?  We wanted to thank you again for creating the perfect wedding for us. We could not be happier with the memory of that day which we will treasure forever and appreciate all of your hard work in creating it for us! All of your vendors were absolutely perfect.  Warmest thanks, Jeannine and Mario

Hi Lisa, First I would like to say, I am truly grateful to have found you/well be referred to you by the hotel.  Thank you very much for taking us on, organizing and arranging all the vendors and all of the stuff I didn’t know about.

Thanks again for everything, Chin

Hi Lisa, We had a lovely wedding celebration, thank you.  We got lots of compliments.  We were happy with the wedding, Thanks. JCY

Just wanted to say hello.  We’re stiil reeling from our beautiful wedding.  Sending hugs.  Best, Jamie

Lisa!  I want to thank you so much for everything! Our wedding was amazing! Please thank Terri for all her help, she was incredible! Thanks again for everything.  Megan

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in making Carly and Dani’s wedding the magical evening that it was.  I’m sure you’ll agree with me that what we saw on Sunday evening was exactly what Carly envisioned at our first meeting some months back.  I have been inundated with messages from so many people that it was such a spectacular evening.  Once again, thank you for your hard work in making their dream wedding come true.  Regards, Michelle

Lisa, Steve and I have loved working with you.  Our entire process of planning the wedding was seamless due to your expertise and follow through.With Love and blessings, Margo and Steve

Lisa, Thank you so much for everything! JoAnn and Ross (parents of the bride)

Hi Lisa, We can’ thank you enough for everthing you did.  We were so happy with how our wedding day went.  Everything was so beautiful and completely exceeded our expectations. The whole process was such a great experience and we owe that to you. We really appreciate everything you did so much, so thank you thank you thank you!! Hopefully we’ll meet again, until then we will continue to be jealous of all your instagram pictures. Take care. Dallen and Dean

Dear Lisa,This thank you note is long overdue, however,my wonderful wedding is still fresh In my mind.  Thank you so much for making my dream wedding a reality. You really helped me develop a vision, and all of your vendors (esp Keith/florist) were outstanding.  I am so lucky to have found you as a wedding co-ordinator. Your organizational skills and friendly reminders kept us on track and were a great reminder about the upcoming wedding.  I thought that planning a wedding from the opposite coast during medical school would be near impossible,instead with your help, it was fun a relatively stress-free. Thank you again so much! Sincerely Jackie

Hi Lisa, Just wanted to send a big thank you to you and Teri for all your organization and co-ordination that made our day perfect.  Everyone kept telling me to just ignore the things that go wrong at your wedding because I would be the only one to notice, but honestly nothing went wrong.  It was perfect and I’m sure a lot of that had to do with you.  You guys are amazing.  All the best, Amy

Dear Lisa, Mr Li and his family thank you for all your organization and help for Xiaoping and Xiang’s wedding.  Everything went so smoothly because of you!  Many Thanks, Eileen

Lisa, Thank you so much for all you have done to make Nicole & Ryan’s wedding such a memorable day! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and many of our guests were very complimentary about you!  Hope we can work with you in the future. Best regards, and thanks again, Theresa & Louie

Lisa, Thanks for being a great wedding planner.  It made our experience less stressful and on budget.  Also, thanks for being patient with us! Victoria and John

Hi Lisa, Thank you SO much for all your work and for helping us to create the wedding of our dreams.  We had the best time and celebration.. Thank you Lisa, god bless you, Taisiya

Dear Lisa, Wanted to thank you for all you did to make our wedding so beautiful and memorable.  You were such a pleasure to work with.  Thank you again!!! With love, Crystal & Andy

Note from Lisa: Crystal also sent these two emails, so I think we could say she was very happy!! lol

So what would it take for me to have another weekend like this all over again?? lol  And I can’t express the gratitude I have for you and all you’ve done for us to make this once in a lifetime a memorable event.

I got the sunset picture I wanted/dreamed about!!!And of course the ones with Dolce too. You helped make my dreams become reality!!

Hello Lisa, It was beautiful.  We can’t wait to receive the photos from Frank to relive all the memories.  Thank you for your leadership, experience, and charm in making this day a true success!!  All of our best, Natalie

Hi Lisa.  Was an awesome wedding!! Thanks so much for all your hard work! Dani

Hi Lisa, Just got back to Canada from our honeymoon.  Thanks so much for all of your help in co-ordinating and planning everything.  There’s definitely no way we could have done it without you!! Everything went very well on the day of, and all of our guests had a really great time.  Also, I think you were bang on with your recommendations for the different vendors – everyone was amazing.  We’ve had lots of very positive comments on Keith’s (florist) Brent’s (officiant) and Peter’s (dj) work, and I am sure the same will be true for Frank when we get his photos (he was definitely perfect to work with on the day of, so I anticipate great things!) It really was a dream team!  Thanks so much for being so patient with us and helping us along the way with decisions.  We were both pretty new to all of this, and you made everything very easy for us.  In the end the wedding came out better than we had imagined! Thanks again and take care, Ryan & Isabelle

Makes my heart smile, all you lovely bride and grooms are why I do what I do, and love it.

As planners we all know the difference we make in an event (ie the little things we do that you don’t notice we do, but if they weren’t done your guests or you would notice), but as much as bride and grooms can be memorable to us for a variety of reasons, I don’t know if we realize the impact we can make on our couples.  In the past few months I got two emails from two brides, one I did their wedding 20 years ago, the other 11 years ago.

From Jina:

On a whim I googled your name this morning and found you! For some reason when you left Disney I thought you had gone back to New Zealand, but here you are.

Twenty years ago yesterday, George and I were married.  We were naturally reminiscing about the day and of course we remembered ALL you had done for us.  I specifically remembered you repeatedly telling me to slow down during my walk down the aisle .. I raced anyway!  Anyway you may not remember us – after all it has been 20 years, but we remember you!  I hope you are doing well, your website looks great and I bet you are making a lot of wedding dreams come true.  You were an important part of our day 20 years ago and we’ve never forgotton.  Best regards Jina and George

Note from Lisa – I always think of George and Jina, they were one of my first couples I really really enjoyed.

From Melinda:

Hi Lisa

This is Melinda Tunnelle!!  You planned my wedding Dec 2003.

Note from Lisa: Melinda was looking for help with vendors for a party she was planning.  Even with the days of the internet, it was neat to see 11 years later she still trusted my referrals.

And we don’t so often get kudos from our peers/vendors we refer, but I got this lovely handwritten note from Larry Crandall/photographer:

Lisa, Such a beautiful wedding and great couple!  Your attention to detail was evident everywhere as always! I look forward to our next event. Larry

Till next time
