I would highly recommend using Magical Events for wedding planning! Lori did an outstanding job and our wedding day was perfect thanks to all the hard work she put into it!Nov 1, 2015
Lori was a godsend. We had a very small, casual wedding ceremony/welcome party followed by a bigger reception the next day. She was there for us for every moment of each event. I worried about absolutely nothing either day. Lori handled everything deftly. She decorated our reception hall and it was even more beautiful than I imagined it would be, and set exactly the mood we were hoping to set. I would not hesitate to recommend Lori to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner, and I'd recommend her to anyone who thinks they *don't* need a wedding planner. :) You do. You need Lori.Oct 21, 2015
We used Lori and Magical Events for our wedding ceremony, rehearsal dinner and reception. She totally paid for her herself with her advice and expertise. She found us an amazing caterer, helped us plan a unique and memorable evening in a lovely space. She handled change well and we counted on her for a lot and she delivered. Tremendous event planning service. I would recommend her to anyone.Oct 18, 2015
Lori knew the venues and where to get the best deals. She wanted fabulous at the best price, and the results spoke for themselves. She answered all my calls promptly and calmed my nerves. (mother-of-the-bride). I would hire her for another wedding.Oct 13, 2015
Lori did a spectacular job! My daughter selected the Artisans Building at the State Fair grounds for her reception which is a blank canvas to an untrained person. We got SO many compliments on her design. My daughter and son-in law were very pleased with the outcome. Lori has the personality to keep everyone CALM :) She also knows way to help save money which is important as well.Apr 1, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to decide the needs of the client and then decide on a price. I do also offer a military discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Generally I have a consultation with the bride and whomever else she wants to bring. We discuss her needs, desires, style, colors, etc. I like to get a feel of what they really want, what is important to them about their wedding. This consultation is completely free. I want to make sure that, even if I am not hired, the wedding is moving in the right direction. This consultation is completely free.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have more than 20 years of experience doing what I do. My degrees have no direct correlation to wedding planning; but, I find that I am continually using every bit of knowledge and experience I have to pull of the best event for my clients.
