I cannot say enough good things about Lisa! She was so amazing to work with as my month-of wedding planner. I was completely relaxed on my wedding day and was able to enjoy every aspect of they day – and that really is thanks to Lisa. She was so organized and on top of everything and was able to handle anything thrown her way. My husband and I are pretty laid back so Lisa was great for us in helping us to stay on track and also helping us to brainstorm and make decisions about every aspect of our wedding. Even though we hired her as a month-of planner, she really went above and beyond throughout our whole wedding planning process. We live in Chicago so it was important to us to have a planner that was very familiar with the wedding industry in DC since we wouldn’t be able to visit and meet with every vendor. Lisa had great recommendations for every vendor that we were looking for which made our lives so much easier. She took the time to meet with us a do a venue walk-through 6 months before the wedding when we happened to be in DC for a few days in December. She also attended our final walk-through and tasting two months before the wedding and by this time already had a detailed timeline for the wedding. She thought of every little detail and had contingency plans for everything. Working with Lisa was wonderful – we weren’t sure if we needed to hire a month-of planner but this was honestly the best money we spent. She was so thoughtful and helpful throughout the whole process and made planning so much easier. We highly recommend hiring Lisa as your planner!

Choosing Lisa as our wedding coordinator was the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. Her experience and expertise took all of the stress out of planning our wedding. She was so organized and helpful when it came to helping us select our vendors, she did an incredible job coordinating all of our vendor contracts and ensuring we received everything we were promised, and we were blown away by the timeline she built to help ensure our day ran smoothly. We could not have done any of it without her. Throughout the experience, she was calm and professional and helped us navigate various challenges that arose during our planning process. She allowed us to truly be able to enjoy our wedding day and with her at the helm we knew everything would run smoothly! Thank you Lisa!!!

Hiring Lisa Havard to be our day-of-event wedding coordinator was our best wedding-related decision. We interviewed other coordinators but got the feeling that our wedding was just another job to them. Lisa's joyful enthusiasm and dedication to making our wedding vision come true won us over. Throughout the lead-up to our wedding, Lisa was generous with her time and ideas on topics ranging from wedding décor to ice-breakers for our rehearsal dinner to suggestions to take our wedding to the next level. We had many email and phone communications, plus two lengthy in person meetings before the actual wedding. Lisa helped us prepare a detailed time-line for our cocktail hour, ceremony, reception, and conclusion. She acted as liaison between us, our other wedding professionals, and our venue; recommended additional vendors who turned out to be awesome; provided timely reminders of tasks left on the to-do list so that we were not left scrambling for time at the end or having to give up on something we wanted for lack of time; even lent us her own easel when we needed a place to display our wedding Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract); and was always a calm, reassuring, and supportive presence. On the day of the wedding, Lisa and her assistant were on top of everything, ensuring that our wedding ran seamlessly so that my husband and I were able to lose ourselves in the sheer enjoyment of the day. We really appreciated the fact that Lisa brought an assistant (something other coordinators never mentioned). Two sets of eyes and hands definitely beat one. I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job than Lisa at helping us prepare for our wedding and ensuring that it was the everything we hoped it would be and more. Thank you Lisa!!

My Husband and I have known Lisa of L.Havard events for a few years (she is both a friend and colleague of mine), so it was a no-brainer when we got engaged that we would ask her to help with with the month-of coordination for our big day. Being in the events industry myself, I have come to know that hiring an experienced planner is the BEST money a couple can spend on their wedding. Having worked with Lisa in the past on events for other couples, I knew from our first conversation that she was going to make sure our wedding was perfect from start to finish. Lisa went above and beyond to deliver every detail of our dream day, and looking back, I am still in awe of the ease with which she executed a full weekend of events for our friends, family and guests! From her organization and timelines, to checking in with each vendor, member of our families and bridal party, the day ran like clockwork. All of our guests were wowed by the hospitality of Lisa, her assistant Charlene, and the team of vendors she helped oversee. Lisa's rapport with her clients goes above and beyond what I have experienced in working with other planners - she takes the time to get to know her couples, their families, the venue, and the event vendors, to ensure that everyone involved is able to relax and enjoy being a part of the wedding. Her experience, confidence in her work, and industry knowledge truly shine through in the execution of her events, but she is also creative and fun to work with during the planning process, always being there for moral support, ideas and assistance. Wether you are looking for full wedding planning or month/day-of coordination, we would highly recommend Lisa, and we cannot thank her enough for her literally making our big day feel like magic!

We LOVE Lisa!!!! (Quick disclaimer, I usually never write in all caps but I feel very strongly about this so here goes!) I've tried to write and re-write this review at least 10 times but nothing I write can really express the gratitude my husband and I feel for all of the incredibly hard work, time, and effort Lisa put into our wedding. I can say for a fact that the wedding would not nearly have been as beautiful or successful without Lisa's help. Frankly, it would have been a big mess. But with Lisa's magic, it was THE best day of my life and it went off without a single hitch!!! I could go on and on with a huge list of why she and her team are so amazing, but let me just give you the top three things that I most appreciate from her: 1) I had this insane (and somewhat drunken) request that the flowers MUST go home, and believe me if you saw the flowers you'd know it was a Herculean task (we're talking HUGE tropical leaves, vines, and flowers everywhere). Lisa had it all packed and stuffed in multiple family members cars by the end of the night, like magic. AND all of the other trillion things that we brought from home, it was all neatly packed and stuffed in the car. MAGIC!! 2) I literally had to worry about NOTHING on the day of the wedding. Not. A. Single. Thing. She took care of it all, which speaks volumes about her dedication and preparation. She even hand-wrote this adorable sign for the rally towels we put out for our guests at the wedding with the cutest saying!! She's really goes above and beyond! 3) She's incredibly nice, easy to get along with, and very accessible!! Every little thing, every little indecision and decision, she was there for me. And as you know, having someone there to say "yes" or "no" or "I think this is a better idea" can be really helpful during this whole process. I think I must have emailed her like 10x a day at one point and she was always so patient! In sum, hiring Lisa was the best decision I made. Book her now!

Working with L. Havard Events was the single best decision we made throughout the wedding planning process. We cannot overstate the value of working with Lisa from the beginning, as she helped us make the fundamental decisions that led to our vision for the day. Every step of the way she was with us to make sure we were working with the best vendors, getting the best prices (saved us lots of money here), and to take all the stresses of wedding planning away from us. Her passion for this work and her experience gave us a lot of comfort in making decisions, which is something we struggled with prior to working with Lisa. She knew how to take our ideas and make them reality. Perhaps the most valuable part was that we actually got to enjoy the process with our families, and avoid the inevitable stress that comes with making decisions and planning. This really proved true in the month leading up to the wedding when we got to hand over all the logistics to Lisa and simply enjoy the special moments with our friends and family. Her timeline was exceptional, and kept everything extremely organized throughout the day (and our wedding had a lot of moving parts). We truly cannot recommend working with Lisa enough!

Hiring Lisa as a day-of coordinator was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. It was a special blessing to be able to spend precious time with our families before our ceremony and know that Lisa and her wonderful team were setting up and making sure every detail was in place. Lisa's passion for weddings combined with her organization and attention to detail make her worth far more than the rate she charges. We would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding; with Lisa's help, our wedding was everything we dreamed of. P.S. she also knows how to tie a bow tie ;) - Whitney & Neil

My dream December wedding would not have been all I had dreamed without the help of Lisa. She supported me from start to finish and never shut down any of my "out of the box" dreams- e.g. I want a Santa Claus to surprise the guests on the dance floor! I want him to throw green & red glow sticks, and hand out donuts! From the beginning, she helped me narrow in on my what was most important to me and guided me through the process of bringing this to life. Lisa not only made great vendor recommendations but was fun, detail-oriented, kind and a pleasure to do vendor visits with. She always knew what questions to ask, how to analyze contract and make sure that our choices fulfilled my ultimate goals. Being just a month out of the wedding, I know that a planner provides you not only with a person to bounce ideas off but someone to help ease your mind do stressful times (this is inevitable!) and share in the successes. I highly recommend Lisa and guarantee that she will help you the way she helped me all while being creative, fun and kind!

Lisa is AMAZING! Without a doubt, our wedding wouldn't have come together without her help. Our wedding logistics were rather complicated (a lot of vendors, three different locations), and Lisa made sure everything ran seamlessly. In the two months that we worked with Lisa, she gave us such peace of mind and alleviated any wedding stress, both our own and that of our families. Lisa provides great advice given her expertise and decades of experience in this space while at the same time respecting your wishes and fully executing your vision. She is incredibly responsive, pleasant, organized, and hyper competent. Hiring Lisa was probably the best decision we made regarding our wedding.

Lisa pays attention to every detail and makes sure you have the wedding of your dreams. She is very organized and thorough and was exactly what we needed when planning our daughter's wedding. She was on top of all our deadlines and provided gentle reminders throughout the whole planning process. She had great suggestions when we were uncertain what we wanted and always helped us make wise choices! Our daughter's wedding ran very smoothly. Lisa and her team were a great help from start to finish!

Lisa and her crew are talented, organized, and efficient! Lisa makes you feel special and like a bride-- not like just another client. After a terrible experience with a previous wedding planner, Lisa came in and saved the day! She seamlessly picked up all of the pieces and went above and beyond for my husband and me. Our big day was absolutely beautiful and that is thanks to the hard work and dedication of Lisa and her staff! I can't not recommend L. Havard Events highly enough! :)
