Lilo Weddings

5.0

Broadlands, VA
  • Offers 3 services
  • Starts at $85

My name is Jennette and I would love to be a part of your special day! I got into wedding coordinating on accident! One random day a few years ago, one of my friends asked if I would assist her in a few of her weddings. From that day on, I have been working weddings and my interest in them grew! My company is named after my beloved doggie, Lilo. She is a boxer mix hound, and she is surely a sassy one! She is lively, fierce and isn't afraid to have a good time. My vision for Lilo Weddings is to deliver a stress free and memorable event while working side by side with amazing vendors on the couple's wedding day!

We signed our contract with Jeannette when we had over a year until our wedding date. Having her to keep us on track has been a life and relationship saver! Her resources, contacts, and expertise has allowed us to work within our budget and receive discounts on wonderful vendors. She has wonderful positive energy which has alleviated our stress on more than one occasion. My husband and I are not great at responding to texts often so the communication aspect is very much on us, but she has been great at reaching out in multiple formats to communicate in ways that work better for us. Overall, 11/10 would recommend having her to help alleviate the stress of your big day.

I really can’t say enough about how great Clarice is! She was so helpful in the planning process. Her recommendations for vendors were completely on point - with respect to both budget and personality. She was great at guiding us through what questions to ask of the venue and thought about everything we would never have thought to ask. However, day-of was really where she shown. She handled so many issues that we had no idea were even happening. We had such a blast at our wedding and so much of that was due to Clarice!

Tilly & Teal Weddings And Events

Manassas, VA
  • Offers 5 services
  • Starts at $2,500

Can I let you in on a secret? The journey to the aisle isn't about figuring out logistics or picking out designs. I know that's the opposite of what you'd think a wedding planner would say, but it's true! This time should be focused on experiencing new adventures, learning new communications skills, and celebrating your two families coming together. Your engagement should be focused on loving one another in ways that allow you to feel both heard and loved because at the end of this journey is the start of another. Stress, Frustration, and Confusion? They don't belong here.

I continue to be amazed at the professionalism and thoroughness of Tilly and Teal! I believe that vendor to vendor interactions can mean a lot when it comes to recommendations, and I can't speak more highly of this team. Katie is on top of everything that happens within her team, and on wedding days. From a vendors standpoint, she's extremely easy to work with, and very considerate of what is needed from each vendor. As a photographer, communication and flexibility is key in making a wedding day run smoothly, and Katie, along with her whole team, take everything into consideration and work to make everything as easy as possible for everyone. I also love how intentional and thoughtful with her client's designs she is - she makes everything 100% about her clients! I will forever love working with Tilly and Teal and hope to work with them more in the future! 10/10 highly recommend.

We hired the amazing team at Coordinated Collective to help coordinate our wedding. We had been connected to her through our neighbors, who has also used the coordinated collective for their wedding. We have to say that hiring Ja’el and her team (Molly and Jessica) was the single most valuable investment of our wedding. Ja’el is extremely professional and has a process and system that ensured that all of our desires and wishes were captured and communicated to all of our vendors, wedding party, family and friends. We had several calls with Ja’el leading up to our wedding, where we discussed and finalized some of the major details of our wedding. Ja’el also was available to offer perspective, make recommendations, and answer some of our minor questions as well. She was extremely attentive, quick to respond, and clear on setting and communicating expectations with us. Ja’el’s process, timeline, and consistent urging ensures that every detail of our wedding was planned and communicated to our vendors 2 weeks prior to our event. This included photography and videography, the DJ, the venue and catering, hair and makeup, transportation, flowers, decor, lighting, cake baker, officiant, and wedding party. This also included a full inventory of everything that was ours and/or needed to return after the event. This ensured that we could spend the weeks leading up to our event communicating to and welcoming our guests into town as well as answering minor questions. During the rehearsal, Ja’el effectively communicated our vision to our wedding party and set the tone, making sure that everyone knew and respected that the day was ours. On the day of the event, it was clear that Ja’el and her team were prepared. They arrived on time, ensured that all of our vendors knew where to be and when and delivered on their services, and handled everything with flying colors. All of the preparation, leading up to the day allows us to feel comfortable and confident that Ja’el and her team knew what we wanted and could deal with any issues as they came. If there were major issues, we certainly didn’t know about it. There were a couple minor issues that we noticed during the day but Ja’el and her team handled everything. Behind the incredible professionalism, the coordinated collective team was so fun to work with. They even showed off some dance moves towards the end of our reception. Our day was absolutely amazing and we literally could not have pulled it off without the Coordinated Collective. We weren’t the only ones to notice either. Even some of our friends and family have expressed how impressed they were with Ja’el. We would 1000% hire them again and would 10000% recommend them to others.

She helped me make my timeline and contacted my vendors and even offered some of her own things to use for the wedding that I had forgotten to get! My wedding ran so smoothly and it was everything I could have wanted! She set up everything the day of even though the venue didn’t giver her a lot of time and it looked just like I wanted it to.

Lissa is fantastic to work with! We loved her from our first zoom call. She is so positive and has such an uplifting energy. We had a month of coordination package and my only regret is that we did not plan the entire wedding with her. We both work full-time and wedding planning is a full-time job. Lissa did her best and made our wedding day special and as relaxing as possible. Our family was charmed by Lissa as well! I cannot recommend her enough. She has been in the industry, she knows vendors and vendors know her too. We heard great feedback about Lissa from other vendors too. She is not just a wedding planner, she is your wedding bestie!

Like many in the industry, I fell in love with planning weddings when I started planning my own in 2017. At the time, I was a corporate lawyer at a big firm in DC and it just hit me: I was totally in the wrong field! Since then, I have dedicated all of my free time to arranging my own events, helping my friends plan their own, and dreaming of the day that I could provide the same service for others.

Awarded Best of Zola
During the wedding planning process, I was often asked if I was feeling stressed. Carmen was a huge part of the reason I was able to say that I wasn't! Her clear and open communication kept us informed, alleviated any worries, and ensured that I stayed on task with smaller details I was certain I'd forget. Her recommendations for vendors were fantastic and made it a lot easier to choose from all the possibilities. The flow of our wedding was really important to us, and thanks to her planning everything went perfectly. Even when there were small issues that arose (parking, people being late, missing shoes) she made sure that it was handled without needing to involve me or my husband. She anticipated so many of these issues ahead of time and had a plan in place. Additionally, when no one could figure out how to bustle my dress Carmen came to the rescue and figured it out. I was able to wear my dress all night like I wanted and I was so happy. We had such an amazing day, and it definitely could not have happened without Carmen!

Born and raised in Maryland, and will forever be a Maryland girl at heart. I relocated to Virginia in 2015 after graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park (GO TERPS). Now, I live in Northern Virginia with my college sweetheart, our 3 rescue pups and our baby boy. I started my planning journey in college, planning my sorority's events, along with various corporate and charity events. After graduation, I started shadowing wedding planners in the industry, learning the ever-changing world that we call wedding planning, and the rest is history! I love making couples dreams a reality!

If you don’t have a day of coordinator, look no further! Laura and her team have been incredible. I reached out to Laura after she was the coordinator for my friends wedding and have not been disappointed since that day. Laura has been the utmost example of professionalism and organization. We chose her day of coordinator services as I was pretty confident about my planning abilities, but we didn’t want to have to do anything on our day of. If you do not feel confident with planning, I would seek out her services for full coverage planning as she did just a stellar job with sending us vendors, connecting with the ones that we had, and helping us with all the details. Day of our expectations were exceeded! Once her team arrived, Kayla and Ivy, we didn’t have to do a thing! The day of our plans changed a lot and they really kept us on time. We had to deal with a tropical storm that popped up two days before the wedding, which was wholly unfortunate. Our venue and everything was inside, however we wanted to take our first look and party photos outside. On the day of the coordinators helped us find an additional space to take photos in and took care of everything. It was so great to have Kayla and Ivy by our side because I didn’t have to worry about anything, I didn’t have to look at the schedule, I didn’t have to worry if that was set up correctly, or this was set up correctly or if vendors had arrived and we’re on time and tell them where to go etc. etc. It felt great to just spend my entire wedding day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful day it was. Thank you Laura, Kayla, and Ivy for making our event the absolute best that it could be.

Keep Calm And Wed On

5.0

Washington, DC
  • Offers 6 services
  • Starts at $3,000
  • Serves Ashburn, VA

After 25 years as a full-time wedding planner and event designer based in Washington, D.C., Veronica Cole created Keep Calm And Wed On. We believe that couples should not have to sacrifice the luxury of professional guidance and experience of a wedding planner simply because you don't have a large budget. We help you save time and money on your wedding planning journey to keep calm and select the best vendor that fits your needs without breaking your budget. By combining our virtual wedding planning services with wedding day management, we can assist couples from anywhere in the world!

Friend's & family know me as being very organized, but (thankfully) I have never planned a wedding before, & there are just details and logistics that you don't know or think about. I no longer live in Maryland, but that didn't stop Veronica from being able to help me with her expertise. I purchased the 12-month virtual wedding planning package. We would virtually meet on Zoom once a month, but her secret weapon is a web portal that has everything you need to reference from customized timelines, budgeting, photo boards, vendors/contact info, & so much more! It also makes it very convenient to communicate through there. Instead of many emails or text chains about allllll the topics that will arise, you can post thoughts, questions, pictures, links, documents, & more. It will notify Veronica by email that you put something in Aisle Planner & she can read/respond & will get back to you within 24hrs. So although I did the 'virtual' package I never felt like I was alone or like Veronica wasn't there to help (she even video chatted with me at the final venue walkthrough 30 days before the wedding!) Even if you think you don't need help or it's not worth it, I promise that when your mental sanity is dwindling, especially towards the end with everything going on, you will be SOO happy you chose Veronica for either in-person or virtual wedding planning!

Weddings by Kristy

Midway through vision boarding, thinking ‘this is a lot’? We hear you. Working with us is like having a professional tour guide to lead you through bringing your ideal wedding from mental picture to actual day. Because the best wedding is the one where you’re relaxed, toasting champagne, and being all lovey with the person you adore. Google us to see our 5-star reviews!

Kristy was the wedding vendor I didn’t know I needed, until I met her! My husband and I hired Kristy as our day of coordinator for our wedding last weekend and she was nothing short of amazing! Once our wedding was about 4 months out and we really started to get into the weeds of planning our big day, we realized that we needed a day of coordinator as we were doing a lot of DIY touches for the wedding and needed someone there to make sure our vision could actually come to life. Upon meeting Kristy, she immediately gave us a ton of ideas as to where to thrift on a tight budget and had so much information and helpful tips to offer. She also took over the vendor communication 3 months out which was a huge lift in the final planning stage! She was very effective in her coordination with all of our vendors and point of contacts so that on the day of the wedding we were really just enjoying the day both carefree and stress-free. Kristy offers a ton of helpful documents to review after your first session with her and she creates a custom timeline for you with the day scheduled to the minute. She was so organized and really kept us on track! Kristy also did an amazing job with the breakdown of the event especially since we brought in a lot of the decor in ourselves. She was flexible in making sure that all of our items got into one of our family member’s cars so it could be picked up whenever we had time the next day. This was a huge help so that guests at the wedding weren’t carrying flowers, vases, and signs home for us and instead headed directly to the after party. She even texted my parents the morning after with the details of where all of our items were stored and shared some great photos (and a reel with us) from the day! :) Kristy was also an advocate for us as clients, which went a really long way. We were having issues communicating well with one of our vendors, but Kristy stepped in and found a way to get a hold of the vendor and ensure our ask could be met. Without that push, our day would have looked a lot different than the vision we had hoped for- she really made our day come to life. After going through the wedding process, I truly think everyone needs a day of coordinator so if you have a slight inclination that someone is needed, think no further and contact Kristy! While weddings can get expensive as we all know, the best use of our money on our wedding day was spent on Kristy. Looking back on our day, we can’t thank her enough!!

Create You Events

Montgomery Village, MD

  • Serves Ashburn, VA

We are a team of creative professionals who specialize in coordination, design and planning. We offer full, partial or month of wedding planning and design packages. We also do bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, retirement or engagement parties. Our design team provides full and partial venue design and execution.

Create You Events was the reason why our dream wedding became a reality!! My husband and I consider ourselves to be good planners, and like other couples, we thought we could make do without a wedding planner. We were only looking for a day-of coordinator when we reached out to Create You Events. We interviewed Vicky and realized the value she could provide us throughout the planning process. We quickly changed our stance and hired her as both our day-of coordinator and wedding planner. This was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The amount of time and mental energy saved was beyond worth it. Vicky and her team's guidance kept us on schedule and organized during our nine-month timeline. Vicky was able to handle all obstacles in stride. No challenge was ever too big for her, and that calmed many of our nerves. What sets Vicky and her team apart is their ability to complement the areas that my husband and I lacked. We were transparent with those aspects which we weren't as prepared for and our budget constraints, and they would always found solutions or presented us with alternatives that met our needs. There were countless times when Vicky would save the day by bringing up things that we wouldn't even consider! She was great with vendor management and helped identify vendors that fit our criteria. In addition to Create You Events' planning and coordination service, we also opted for their decor services. What was the most dreaded part of planning for us was no longer a challenge. Trust me when I say they made all of our worries go away when it came to decor and signage. We were able to provide our vision and they delivered on every little detail. The arrangements and signage fit the elegance of our theme and venue perfectly. It was a huge benefit having a team that already understood our vision and was attentive to every request. Where do I begin for the day-of coordination? Vicky and her team were the calming force to our chaotic day. We wanted to maximize our day, so we planned our timeline down to the minute. From their planning, they set up our day so that we didn't have to make any major decisions. All we had to do was follow the timeline they put together for us. This allowed us to enjoy our day and appreciate the little moments we would have otherwise missed. Even when things that were out of our control went array, Vicky and her team didn't even flinch from the pressure and were quick to find a resolution, having no impact on our day. Simply put, we couldn't have had a perfect day without the involvement from Create You Events. The planning, decor, and coordination was stress free for us and allowed us to allocate our time to other areas that required more of our individual attention. Vicky and her team were incredibly easy to work with and we felt comfortable enough to share all of our circumstances with her. We will always give the highest recommendation to Create You Events to our friends and family for their wedding and/or any major event. We are still left in awe by how they were able to listen to our vision and run with it. We definitely won't miss wedding planning, but will miss our planning calls with Vicky. Just knowing we had the certainty and guidance from her made us feel like everything would be alright. Vicky, can we still have calls with you to help us plan the rest of our life? Hands down the best wedding

As owner and lead wedding planner, Janice has her hands on every Bellwether wedding. She’s a logistical virtuoso with crazy-high standards. She’s never met a detail she couldn’t wrangle or a problem she couldn’t solve. You can always expect Janice to keep it real — a communication style you’ll be thankful for when dealing with budgets, wedding day mania, and drunk Uncle Ted.

I have had the pleasure of working with Bellwether Events many times. From my 10 years experience of working in the wedding industry, I found that some planners are only good at logistics (timeline, having things in order, managing vendors, etc.), some planners are only good at design and creativity, some are only good at client relations and relationships with the family. Bellweather is excellent at all of these things and I see how she consistently nails every category at every single wedding I have worked with her. If you want your event to shine and to have the absolute best experience from the beginning to end, Bellweather is who you need.

I'm a Maryland native living Richmond Virginia with my husband in our first home; a big beautiful project in Fulton Hill. In my journey down the aisle I found more than just my future partner, I found what I was meant to do; helping people like you say "I do" too!

You know those people they say are “sunshine in human form”? Meet Jami Heath, Wedding Planning Fairy Godmother Extraordinaire! There are so many reasons I’m glad I chose Jami as my wedding planner! From color-coded vendor timelines, to tablescapes, cake plates, wedding favors, flatlay photos, hand-lettered paper elements, velvet ring boxes, playlists of music, the list goes on! Jami truly leaves no design detail unturned and her thorough questions for your preferences will surprise and delight you. When your most special day finally arrives there is no one better suited to orchestrate your celebration of love. Jami remains completely calm and graceful no matter the circumstance. People may tell you “no wedding is without hiccups” but when I think back to my wedding, I don’t recall those because Jami swiftly handles it! She set tables to perfection, moved seating, fetched Coke Zero (my husband’s strict beverage of choice!), snapped Polaroids for our guest book, primped and prepped me as needed, wiped mascara smudges and veil fluffed, even going as far to stitch rips in my heirloom wedding gown mid-reception! We literally laughed so hard we cried! I never expected a wedding planner to pour so much love, energy, positivity and sheer joy into her “job”. And that’s truly because to Jami it’s not a job — it’s her calling! I couldn’t be more grateful she is written into the memories of my wedding day. Her love and care for me and our families will surely stay with me forever.

This is a way too late review for a spectacular wedding planner and event designer who brought to life the wedding of my dreams in June 2022! Lauren and her team truly provide a 5-star experience in every way and more. Before I met Lauren, I had a vision for my wedding, but really wasn't sure how to bring it to fruition. I was walking through the "steps" recommended in different timeline sheets, which in itself is very tiring, and starting very big picture. But as anyone who has planned a wedding knows, the details start to become very, very overwhelming - especially when there's a specific look and feel you want for your wedding. Where do you invest your time and money? That's where Lauren was a lifesaver. Some key moments in our work together included: aligning us via several conversations and an inspiration deck (really important for making sure you're on the same page), meeting me at a rental facility to walk through design elements together, coordinating with family members to make sure she got a comprehensive picture of what really mattered to me (bless my partner, he couldn't care less), and "secretly" working with family members to make the vision "bigger and better" and surprise me. Lauren also has an IMPECCABLE eye for how to bring all the million details together. She hand-selected and/or advised on every detail, from utensil colors to linens to stamp types to wax seals - all the tiny details that create a full "experience" for you and your guests, but by the end, you don't have energy to pick yourself! Moreover, Lauren is incredibly professional, warm, direct, patient, and supportive - all traits you need in a planner and designer. She will also tell you what she thinks, which is essential, particularly in the home stretch! By the end, Lauren was responsible for creating the wedding of my dreams. I can truly say it was the most magical weekend of my life, and while all weddings are so special when you have the people you love, it doesn't quite feel *spectacular* without all those details coming together. I am happy to share photos of my event with anyone who asks, or simply look at Lauren's instagram for her incredible work. Thank you, Lauren - we were so lucky to find you!!! 3

We foster meaningful, deep connections that enable us to instinctively understand who our couples are, how they live and how they love. With that type of knowledge, we can create gorgeous wedding experiences that are vivid, personal expressions of our couples’ lifestyles, their love story, their taste and their personalities. We create weddings that our couples will cherish for a lifetime.

I’m not sure who is the bigger genius: the professionals at HowertonWooten, or ME for hiring them!! When my now-husband and I had our first call with Kawania, we knew immediately that we had found our team captain. Kawania radiates warmth, expertise, knowledge, and understanding and those values are reflected throughout the HW Events organization. Kawania created a bespoke package and experience that reflected our needs and our budget. She was a supportive and grounding force as she helped us design our wedding before another member of her team - LaShonda - took over to put everything into action. LaShonda was such a joy to work with. She made me feel heard, understood, and supported - even when my parents were trying to push for their own choices! - and made sure my husband and I were happy with each and every decision. I had an easy time trusting her and her ideas. Our wedding day was flawless thanks to LaShonda’s diligence, creativity, and leadership. Everything from the ceremony rehearsal to our last dance and send off was perfectly executed and easy. Our entire wedding party raved about LaShonda and her incredibly helpful schedule — a HUGE bonus for this Type A/control freak bride. I knew LaShonda had everything covered - even things I never thought of - so I was able to fully relax in the days leading up to the wedding and on wedding day. The only thing I had to worry about was getting dressed!! My only complaint is that our business together has concluded — I will miss Kawania, LaShonda, and the entire HW Events Team! I guess we’ll have to plan an anniversary party!! TLDR; Do not hesitate to hire this team. It will be the best and smartest decision you make.
