I would HIGHLY recommend Lana! We chose the middle package, so she was involved from the beginning and went to a few important meetings with us to help along the way. Anytime we had a question, needed advise, or just a simple guide to help us make a decision that came up, she was there to help in any way she could. She was always available to talk, text, or email; she got back to us as right away and if she was busy, she would give us a time when we could contact her. She is one of the sweetest people we have met and we immediately felt comfortable with her from the beginning. She is honest and realistic when it comes to timelines and things that can be done in the time that you have. Sometimes, when choosing a wedding planner it is difficult because you still want it to be your wedding and don’t want someone who completely makes decisions and your mind up for you. Lana was great at giving advise and leading us as a couple to give direction for what we would want. If you want nothing else but someone to help on the day of your wedding, I would HIGHLY recommend Lana and her team. They made our day run smoothly and without any hiccups (that we knew about anyways). They made all of our dreams a reality. The ceremony and reception came out 100 times better than I ever could have imagined! They had help of the vendors & staff from our venue, but they did most of the work and it was absolutely stunning! They were in the background, but always seemed to be right where we were when we needed them. Lana was always there to tell us what was next and where we needed to be without intruding on time with our guests. Everything went absolutely perfectly, we really had the BEST day ever because of Lana and her team. There is no way we could have done it without her. She is amazing at what she does and is one of the nicest people we’ve met. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner! She is worth every single penny! Thank you so much Lana!!

Lana is amazing and I would recommend her and her team to anyone planning a wedding!! She was organized, helpful, hard-working, flexible, patient, and dedicated. She went above and beyond all of my expectations. Our wedding was an Indian/fusion wedding. Even though Lana had never planned an Indian wedding before, she executed the wedding perfectly! She educated herself on all of our customs and genuinely wanted to understand our family dynamics and customs. Lana made sure that all of our vendors were well-prepared for our wedding day (even if they weren’t the most responsive.) On the day of the wedding, my husband and I could actually enjoy the wedding because we knew Lana and her team were handling every detail. Lana is: • Responsive: Lana was always easy to reach and quick to respond! • Experienced: Because of Lana’s extensive experience in the wedding industry, she always had ideas and solutions for any problems we faced • Organized: Lana was extremely organized and caught so many things we would’ve missed! • Flexible: We ran into some last-minute changes. Lana said she would take care of them, and she did! • Hard working: Lana put so much time and effort into our wedding. We hired her as a ‘day of coordinator’ but she did so much more than we expected. Lana was with us throughout the process and was never unwilling to help us with any task. • Patient: The LME team was friendly and patient with all of our bridal party and family members • Friendly: Lana always made me feel at ease. She always had a smile on her face and never rushed me. Hiring Lana and her team for our event was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thanks a million to Lana and her team!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Lana is an absolute joy to work with! She is so organized and on top of things and she really knows how to make a wedding run smoothly and how to make it enjoyable for your guests. I really enjoyed being able to bounce ideas off of her during the planning process and found her knowledge, checklists, and diagrams to be invaluable as we were planning our day. She’s also a caring and pleasant person to work with, beautiful inside and out! You will not regret using Lana Meadows Events as part of your wedding. In fact, it may be the most valuable thing you spend money on that day! I know it was for us!

Lana was SO helpful not only on the actual wedding day but the entire process leading up to our special day! She sent through extensive task lists which were extremely daunting at first but SO rewarding once we started getting through them, and she was available to answer any questions or give any advice/direction throughout the months of planning. As anyone can imagine or knows the days leading up to the wedding and especially the wedding day is quite a blur. My only concern and the reason for my initial desire for a wedding planner was the absolute refusal to be stressed over the wedding weekend. I wanted to be purely present and enjoy the people who had spent the money, time and effort to be here to celebrate with us. I was able to achieve that goal in no small part due to Lana and her team. I can truly say I felt zero stress throughout the wedding weekend and as close to zero as possible in the months of planning which was an incredible blessing! Thank you, Lana and team : )

Lana was amazing! She was easy to work with and very flexible, willing to work with you to make a contract that best fits your needs. Getting a wedding planner, and more importantly using Lana Meadows Events, was the smartest thing we could’ve done. We had Lana from the very beginning and she assisted us finding good quality vendors, however if you feel like you don’t need that, I would highly recommend using her for your day-of coordinating at a minimum. Lana and her team of assistants were a lifesaver on the Wedding day set-up. As with any big event, there will be hiccups and little mishaps, but Lana and her team were there prepared and were able to keep a calm atmosphere that reassured other family members helping out. As a bride, I actually got to enjoy my wedding and not stress or worry about the set-up or timeline of events since that was all taken care of and hashed out beforehand with Lana. I honestly couldn’t have dreamed for a smoother Wedding day and a huge part of that success was due to Lana and her team!

I cannot praise Lana Meadows enough! My daughter’s wedding was very complicated and detailed. Because my daughter and I are both event professionals, we originally thought we could organize all of the details without a planner. Were we wrong! Halfway through the planning we both got so overwhelmed with details we hired Lana to take over. The first thing she did was to provide us with a detailed timeline. She contacted all the vendors to make sure that everyone had all of their insurance requirements sent to the venue. She provided me with a spreadsheet of deposits made and balances due to all the vendors. These vendors included: florist, decorator, caterer, bakeries, wine sommalier, DJ, wedding singer, limousine service, hair and makeup and more. The event was catered by a restaurant who does not usually do off premise catering. Lana met with them on numerous occaisions to make sure they had everything they needed so there were no last minute problems. I was not at all nervous the day of the wedding. Ii just enjoyed the day and knew that Lana would take care of any issues. But the wedding was truely flawless and I contribute that to all of Lana’s hard work and organization.
