Here are some recent client reviews:
"Lisa...helped me navigate the tricky emotional waters of Ceremony/Wedding planning. With so many opinions from so many people, it was nice to hear Lisa tell me to listen to myself. Lisa also kept an eye on the budget, helping me pick lower cost options to keep the price down....Lisa was great; everything looked beautiful and perfect....I would definitely recommend Lisa again, and will use her if I have any future events."
"Your time and attention has made all the difference today. It is very much appreciated! Thanks for everything!"
--Alicia and Ryan M.
"I just wanted to thank you for all you did to help Jackie with her wedding.... Many times she mentioned to me how much she valued your help, ideas, and attention to detail. On the day itself, I think we all appreciated the fact that we could count on you to coordinate everything, attend to details, and do whatever needed to be done--even down to taking care of the straps of Jackie's wedding gown!"
"I thank you and Kathy thanks you for making sure things worked out. We managed to just get everything done in the nick of time."
"We received numerous compliments about how smoothly things ran during our programs from the staff, board and presenters. Congratulations on a job well done. We hope to work with you again in the future."
"Lisa Gordon did an excellent job planning the 60th birthday party/35th wedding anniversary party for my parents. ...It was essential that I have a trustworthy person...scouting potential venues and getting all the details together. Everything from flowers to appetizers to having a screen for our slide show was perfect. ...The money spent on hiring Lisa to plan everything was more than worth it."
"I am pleased to offer this letter of recommendation for Lisa Gordon. Our wedding reception in Chicago...was a great success as a result of her diligent work. Her professional manner and knowledge of event coordination and planning made our day special. Hiring Lisa was one of the best decisions I made in planning the wedding. Lisa acted as the day of coordinator for our wedding, as well as assisting in planning and set up prior to the day. She performed duties such as coordinating vendors, setting up tables, hiring staff, doing inventory of rentals, calling vendors to confirm, and numerous other tasks. When unexpected problems arose, Lisa handled them confidently and smoothly, leaving us to enjoy the wedding day."
"I am writing this letter to describe the wonderful work Lisa Gordon performed for us as a party coordinator.... Lisa coordinated a surprise 40th anniversary party for my parents in the Chicago area. My sisters and I contacted Lisa...and asked if she could arrange for the location and set-up for the party, the location for a brunch the next day, and overnight accommodations for out-of-town guests.... My experience with Lisa was phenomenal. She understood what kind of party we were aiming for. We wanted a family reunion-type, casual party in an inviting setting. Lisa from the start understood our needs and budget and was able to find a perfect setting for both the party and the brunch. She personally visited a number of sites and sent my sisters and me information, and guided us through any choices we had to make. She was able to handle everything but also allowed us to take over tasks we wanted to do ourselves.... My sisters and I requested that Lisa attend the event and she did. She blended in beautifully and was such a tremendous help.... She stayed within the budget we were aiming for and her fees were more than reasonable considering the work she performed in setting up this event."
