We hired Linnie from L & L events for the complete planning package and it was one of the best decisions we could've made. We were new to the area and really benefited from her knowledge about vendors and locations, she helped us with our vision and really made our day truly amazing. She was there with us every step of the way and helped us through all the (minor) hurdles that appeared in our planning process. We felt like she really cared about us and our wedding and we 100% believe that she really made a difference on how magical our day felt, and was for us and our friends and family. I recommend her and her team wholeheartedly.

Linnie was truly incredible to work with. As someone who has never been involved with planning a wedding before, I felt overwhelmed with the entire process until I hired Linnie. She guided me through the entire process, helped me find a vision for the wedding and managed every aspect of our actual wedding day. She was so easy to work with, and I felt like she was really looking out for what was best for me and my husband on our wedding day. Both my mother and MIL were initially skeptical about hiring a wedding planner, however, by the day of the wedding, they both couldn't stop talking about how glad they were that we hired Linnie. My husband and I were able to really just relax and enjoy our wedding day and know that Linnie and her team had things under control. The entire L&L team were delightful, professional and so incredibly helpful. Thank you Linnie!

Bride and Groom, I'd like to introduce you to Linnie and L&L events. My (now) wife and I were married in DuPont Circle, Washington, DC in early November 2016 and Linnie crushed it! Agile. As you can imagine, weddings do not always go exactly as planned no matter how much planning, preparation, and experience involved. There is always some exogenous force that pops up such as changing weather, a DJ that isn't on her/his game, etc. Linnie took care of these types of issues for us so that my wife and I could enjoy time with our friends and family. Ideal! Execution. She would check in every 1-1.5 hours for about 20 seconds or so. I don't know if that is her plan, but it was great for me as a groom and making sure the event was great for my bride to enjoy her day. We were updated on things going well, on what was coming up next, she would suggest small adjustments for our "blessing", etc. And in between updates, she always seemed to be within reach when need be. Perfect! Above and beyond. Our wedding was not just an event, not just a ceremony, not even just a celebration ... our wedding is a lifetime memory of our love. L&L helped make that a possibility. --Groom

We hired Linnie shortly after we booked our venue to help with our wedding planning. That was the best decision we made! Linnie helped us with the selections of different vendors including photographers, caterers, DJ, florist... and we are very pleased with all our vendors. That really shows how much Linnie understood our expectations. She is very prompt with emails and extremely easy to work with. She made me feel very comfortable like a friend that I can address all my concerns and raise any questions. On our wedding day, Linnie and Julia took care of all the issues and schedule. It was completely stress free of us. It was a absolutely perfect day and I don't think we would be able to do it without Linnie!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Linnie to plan our wedding. She had some great ideas in helping us plan our special day. She was available whenever we had a question and met with us whenever we needed to. She was very involved in the rehearsal to ensure that everyone knew where to be and when to be there. She made sure that all of our decorations for the wedding day were set up appropriately and that the room looked flawless! If there were any issues during our wedding, we had no idea.

I can't say enough about Linnie and her crew. They are down-to-earth and extremely competent. Linnie made herself available to meet us in person and over email and listened to and understood (and followed through) with our biggest worries surrounding such an important day for us. She had fantastic recommendations for the vendors we hadn't hired (especially our officiant, but that is another review). The day was perfect and exactly the way we imagined. Linnie and her team were a big part of making that happen, and reassured us in the process leading up to it to keep us from losing sleep.

Linnie was so amazing to work with. I had an outdoor wedding planned and it quickly changed to an indoor wedding (at a different location) and having to rethink how things were going to be setup. She made the venue look gorgeous and perfect for the ceremony and reception and had 2 days to make it happen! She understood my vision which was very important to me. I cannot thank her and L&L Events enough for all the hard work they did for us to make our day special and perfect!

My husband and I can't thank Linnie enough for helping to make our wedding day perfect! We had a pretty long engagement and we were in contact with Linnie from the very beginning. She helped to keep us organized with every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed the planning process because of her. When our wedding day finally came, everyone around me kept commenting on how calm I was. That's because I had full trust in Linnie to execute all of the details. Not only did she execute......she went above and beyond our expectations! She is courteous, detail-oriented and kept things running smoothly from rehearsal to ceremony to reception. As a DIY bride, I had so many little details that I'd planned. Linnie brought all of my ideas together and allowed me to sit back and enjoy my own wedding. We couldn't have done it without Linnie!

I hired Linnie from L&L events to assist with day of wedding coordination. I had created, hired, and organized our wedding but about a month before the date I realized we needed help on the wedding day. I knew I couldn't be everywhere at once on such a special day and I needed that peace of mind. Thank God I hired Linnie! Every vendor I hired was wonderful and produced as expected except our caterer. The problems are too many to list but Linnie was the front person dealing with all of the issues. I can't even imagine how our reception would have turned out if she and her assistant had not been there. In addition to the day of coordination she meet with me for an initial consultation, at the ceremony and reception site to go over details, and was very prompt with replying to my various questions and emails. Most importantly she stayed after we the reception and took care of everything so we could leave without concern. She gave me her personal phone number and assured we would be her priority in the days leading up to our wedding. She also sent an email to our caterer with supportive documentation regarding our issues. It was nice to know she was there to support us in every way. I wish I had found her earlier because her positive attitude and creativity is wonderful. Her prices are reasonable and I would not hesitate in hiring Linnie.

I was originally on the fence about needing a wedding planner, as I intended on having a very small and intimate ceremony. After doing some research and meeting with Linnie, I realized how much I needed one! There were so many details- I can only imagine how stressful it would have been to coordinate everything without her. Linnie was so great at conceptualizing what we wanted for our big day. She had the best ideas about venues, officiants, flowers, the cake, decorations, favors, etc. I was a very picky bride- I wanted my ceremony and reception to be elegant, tasteful and unique to me and my husband. Linnie went above and beyond to make that happen. For a wedding of our size (less than 20 people) she was still able to secure vendors that would accommodate a cake and flowers on a smaller scale. She was very quick with these details, you can tell she knows her way around the local vendors! My greatest concern was our venue. We expected a lot more foliage in mid April, and really had our hearts set on getting married outside. With only 10 days before the wedding, we were realizing our initial venue wasn't going to work. All the trees were completely bare. I was so worried about how are wedding pictures would turn out. Linnie did her research and came across a beautiful winery in Middleburg. Because of this, our day was perfection. It was so romantic, and the rolling hills in the background were nice and green :) I could not be more pleased with Linnie's work. She put in a lot of effort- I never had to wait around for answers about details. Instead, she would regularly reach out to me with new ideas. It showed me that she was constantly working on our wedding without me having to ask the status of things. Then, there is the heart she put into it. She really listened to mine and my husband's needs and wants for our wedding, and she delivered. On the day of the wedding, she was the first to arrive and the last to leave. I HIGHLY recommend Linnie!

Linnie was a joy to work with as our day of coordinator! She was available for several in person meetings before our wedding and was also very responsive over e-mail and text. She was also able to assist with set-up before our wedding when we needed a few more hands to help arrange our barn wedding. During our wedding day she was very calm, made sure my husband and I had food and drinks during our pictures, made sure I had all the little extras (ibprofin, lint roller, etc) and monitored all of our vendors as they arrived on site. I didn't worry about a thing! She also dealt with a small emergency when one of our guests needed to go to the ER. I had NO IDEA this happened during our reception and she did an amazing job of not making me feel stressed. She's a great choice!

Having Linnie from Hello L & L events for day-of coordination services was one of the best investments we made in our wedding! We planned most of our wedding ourselves, but we hired a day of coordinator to handle all of the craziness the day of. Because our wedding was a destination, we definitely needed someone to be sure that all the vendors, most of whom also traveled to the destination, were on the same page and organized, especially since it was a new venue to all of them. Linnie gave a lot of really good practical advice and has experience working with not so detailed vendors and even not so calm family members. She started meeting with us a few months before our wedding and would check in periodically to see how things were going. She was also there during the rehearsal, and handled pretty much everything - this is something to think about, we had not considered who would run the rehearsal, so we were extremely appreciative that Linnie stepped up and handled it for us. We could not have imagined our wedding day going as smoothly as it did without Linnie being a part of it….she was there for anything and everything, and was so proactive in taking care of all the little problems, details, and last minute changes that came up. She put my wife and me at ease (and this is not an easy thing to do) and we were able to enjoy all of the little moments without having to worry about any details. Linnie is extremely detailed and organized and her personality puts you at ease unlike so many other wedding planners that are high strung and would have stressed us out more. Looking back, if we were to do it all again, one of the first things we would do is to bring Linnie in as coordinator, so that we could calm ourselves, knowing things would be under control.
