Lori did an AMAZING job managing our wedding!
We had our wedding at an unconventional space, a VERY rustic barn that had a lot of moving pieces. She and her assistant did an awesome job setting up and bringing my vision to life, making sure all the vendors had what they needed, and making sure the event flowed along seamlessly. Leading up to the wedding day she was great at communication and making sure nothing was looked over. We would hire Alluring Wedding & Events 100 times over.

As a first time mother of the bride who was helping my daughter with the planning, I wanted to ensure that everyone involved was going to have an enjoyable time on the wedding day. Hiring Lori and her staff to coordinate the day was absolutely the right decision. She truly was the ‘Master of Ceremonies!’
The wedding was held outdoors at the home of the groom’s parents and there was a lot of uncertainty in the morning regarding the weather. A rain plan had been thought of but ultimately the bride and groom decided that they really wanted the ceremony outside which caused a shift in the timeline to avoid the heaviest projected rain. Lori was exceptional at taking in all the cues and managing the communication with the bridal couple, family, guests and vendors alike. Her adaptability and experience were immediately evident from the moment she arrived at the venue. Lori quickly assessed what needed to be done and jumped right into action. She assisted with the final décor details and skillfully guided everyone into their proper places when needed. More than once I saw her gently corralling family members to ensure they did not miss any photographs, toasts or the cake cutting. Lori also has a keen eye for the aesthetics. She is artistic and creative. When it came time to cut the cake, she set up the table and accessories against a beautiful natural backdrop and repositioned floral arrangements to create a perfect setting for the guests and photographer to view the couple.
During the afternoon I saw my daughter and husband walking the grounds together with beautiful smiles on their faces. She later told me that they were looking at all of their family and friends together in one place, having fun and were so happy with the way the day turned out. Thank you so much Lori for all that you did to bring their vision to fruition.

Lori, I can’t thank you enough for helping me create the Bat Mitzvah celebration I envisioned for my Ella, and making the process both easy and fun to boot. From the event timeline and room decor, to the candle lighting ceremony display and candy buffet, I knew that you cared about every little detail as much as I did. So many of my guests told me how amazing everything looked and as you know, the photographer told me it was the best candy buffet she had ever seen. You also took a huge stress off of me by helping me with the logistics of the room decor for the kiddush luncheon the previous day; I seriously don’t know what I would have done without your help. In addition from bringing my vision for the party to life, I hope you know how invaluable it was to me to have you and your assistant Michele, there the entire time to help keep us on task and manage everything. You were always at least one step ahead of me which allowed me to relax and truly enjoy the party with my guests. Lastly, thank you for being so sweet to Ella, and making her feel as special as she deserved to on such an important day in her life. She loved experiencing the big room reveal with you before the party started, and hanging out with you prior to making her grand entrance. I simply couldn’t have asked for a better party planning partner for this major, and at times overwhelming, event in my, my daughter, and family’s life.
I’m excited to know I’ll get to do it all again with you for Orion’s Bar Mitzvah in three years.
Lori proved her professional skills were worth their weight in gold as she made the surprise birthday party I had for my partner the best party he had ever had! During the initial consultation I told Lori what I had envisioned for his party and the Harley Davidson theme. She not only pulled off what I dreamt up but added to the party many times over with her personal touches and suggestions, which made the evening into a dream come true. She communicated throughout the entire process. There was very little I had to do other than agree with her ideas! I too was surprised as we walked into the party with all Lori had accomplished. I was able to truly enjoy the surprise with my love, family & friends because Lori took care of every detail. Thank you Lori for marking our party one that people still talk about months later! You’re the best!!
Hi Lori – I wanted to thank you and your staff for making the wedding this past weekend such a delightful success! As I told you, we really appreciated the way you were able to manage the event without it ever feeling intrusive or stressful to the guests or the participants.
Lori was an absolute godsend. Hiring her was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. We hired her as a day-of coordinator, having done most of the planning ourselves. From the moment she showed up on the morning of our wedding, we felt as if a weight had been lifted from our shoulders. Thanks to her, we were able to relax and enjoy our wedding day to the fullest. Lori oversaw the set-up and clean-up, made sure everything flowed well, handled communications with the venue, and tackled a number of unforeseen crises as they emerged. Whenever I needed something, she was somehow always right there, ready to help, and yet she was totally unobtrusive. She took time to understand our vision for the wedding and to make that vision a reality, while adding little touches of her own that were right in line with what we wanted. Lori has a rare ability to be calm and friendly under pressure, all while being extremely effective at getting things done. At the end of the evening, I lost a handkerchief that was a family heirloom — one of the waitstaff had apparently cleared it from the table. I told Lori and within 30 seconds she magically appeared with the handkerchief. This was just one of many small miracles she performed for us. We kept saying to each other for days afterwards that hiring her had been our smartest wedding choice! We would highly recommend Lori and her team to any couple.
