Over the years, we have had the absolute pleasure of helping many beautiful couples plan their dream wedding! We have spent countless hours, weeks, and months working alongside, and getting to know each and every one of our clients, as we plan their special days! Here are some fabulous “Love Notes”:
Shandi from Twelfth Night Events is the Queen of details. Shandi truly made our day perfect from start to finish. She designed the most beautiful reception space for us. She brought our vision to life. She was always realistic, honest, and talked me through everything. Shandi created a personal experience working together from the beginning, and it always felt like I was her only bride.
Shandi is passionate, professional, knowledgeable, and above all extremely kind and thoughtful. She comes with a lot of experience, and handles everything with ease.
Thanks to her exceptional organizational skills, our wedding planning process was stress-free. Shandi coordinated all the details with our vendors. Even up until a couple weeks before the wedding, she sourced out a vendor to rent chairs from. She knew how much that little detail meant to me. Whatever was important to me, was important to her, and she always found a way to make it happen.
Our wedding was executed to perfection by Shandi, which meant that we could be present and truly enjoy every minute of our day. We can wholeheartedly say that when we look back on our day, we experienced the most fun, relaxing, stress-free day celebrating with our family and friends. Our parents, wedding party, and guests were amazed with how organized everything was.
Working with Shandi was one of the best decisions we made. We could not be more grateful for Shandi and her team at Twelfth Night Events.
Shandi from Twelfth Night Events is an absolute gem in the realm of wedding planners. As someone who thrives on structure and meticulous planning (I'm a type A through and through), Shandi's approach was like music to my ears. Her knack for maintaining a comprehensive checklist and plan and staying several steps ahead, while also making sure we enjoyed the planning process and stayed in the moment, was incredibly reassuring throughout the entire process.
What sets Shandi apart is her remarkable ability not just to listen to your vision and desires but to truly grasp and breathe life into them. She's the epitome of professionalism mixed in with an amazing personality. Working with her was exciting and I always looked forward to our meetings. But what struck me most was her determination matched only by her genuine care for her clients.
When the big day finally arrived, nerves and excitement were inevitable—it's your wedding day, after all! Yet, amidst all the emotions, not once did I fret about logistics or setup. Why? Because I had complete faith that Shandi had it all under control. Her meticulous planning paid off, and the day unfolded flawlessly, all thanks to her expertise.
Without a hint of hesitation, I would absolutely recommend Shandi and Twelfth Night Events to anyone in search of a wedding planner. Trust me; you won't find anyone better suited to bring your dream wedding to life. Shandi's dedication, expertise, and genuine care make her the best choice in the field for ensuring your special day is nothing short of perfect!
1000/10 recommendation for Shandi and Twelfth Night Events!!!
Ana & Connor Brown
My now husband and I made the easy decision to hire Twelfth Night Events as our wedding planners and could not be happier with our choice. From the moment we got engaged, until the day of our wedding, Shandi and Lauren provided us with the highest quality of expertise and professionalism.
They have access and connections to all the top wedding vendors which gave us a head start on securing the best vendors for our wedding day. They guided us throughout, while also allowing us to make the wedding completely our own. Anytime we had questions, concerns or doubts they were a quick email or zoom call away.
Our wedding day was so perfectly executed without a single detail missed, and we truly cannot thank Twelfth Night Events enough for allowing us to have nothing but positive memories throughout the wedding planning process and wedding day. We would recommend Twelfth Night to anyone who wants to take the stress off themselves while planning an event and ensure a successful result!
I cannot express enough how incredibly grateful my husband and I are for the outstanding service provided by Twelfth Night Events.
Working with Shandi was an absolute delight! Shandi made it a priority to put our needs first, going the extra mile to make sure that everything flowed smoothly, allowing us to fully embrace the joyous day. This level of thoughtfulness and consideration made the day even more special for us and our loved ones.
While we only had a coordination package with Twelfth Night Events, Shandi effortlessly coordinated with vendors, managed the timeline, addressed any unforeseen challenges, and made every detail from our vision become a beautiful reality, all with a smile on her face.
Shandi's presence was invaluable and we HIGHLY recommend Twelfth Night Events to anyone in need of a wedding planner or coordinator who will go above and beyond.
Thank you, Shandi, for being an incredible partner throughout our wedding journey. You are a superstar and we loved working with you!
I can’t even begin to describe how amazing Shandi is, as a wedding planner and as a person! We loved working with her and wouldn’t change anything about the entire process.
She goes above and beyond for her couples. We had the chance to work with Shandi for over a year during the process of planning our wedding. She is very organized and dedicated to ensuring her couples are happy, comfortable, understood and that their visions come to life! We can truthfully say we didn’t feel an ounce of stress throughout our whole wedding journey and we attribute that to all of Shandi’s help.
I couldn’t imagine what we would have done without Shandi! She made our day perfect and we both felt so relieved to have her there. It rained at the outdoor venue we chose and she was able to offer guidance and suggestions to ensure the day still went smoothly and better then we could ever expected. Shandi recommends the best of the best when it comes to vendors and all of our guests commented on how incredible our wedding was ( despite the rain). Shandi is patient and kind and handled all of our requests, changes, wants and needs with grace!
I would highly recommend hiring Shandi for your event - she ensured the whole process was stress free for us.
If I could give Lauren and her team above 5 stars I would. She saved my wedding. Prior to meeting Lauren we worked with another wedding planner that did not work out. After working with our previous planner for 6 months, I can truly attest to the difference a wedding planner makes.
Choosing the wrong planner resulted in an absolute disaster that I didn’t fully understand until roughly a month before our wedding. We didn’t have a timeline, a dj, a design proposal, bathroom trailers, a bartender or even a florist. A friend recommended Lauren and I cannot imagine how my day would have played out without her. Replacing our previous planner with Lauren was the best decision we have ever made.
Within minutes of contacting Lauren and relaying the situation, she was on it. We had a florist within ten minutes. By the end of the day we had a design proposal, a dj, and an actual timeline to finally send out guests. In hiring Lauren, you truly are hiring a team. She comes with an amazing reputation and repertoire of vendors that also adore her. She and the amazing florist she found understood what I wanted better than I did. I also appreciated that Lauren does not upsell. The flowers we used for our aisle and our focal point for our vows were repurposed for our tables and head table. She is an expert at knowing exactly what you need to create a beautiful atmosphere without going over budget. She saved the day but also had the knowledge to know exactly what we did and did not need.
What I realized I missed more than anything with my other “planner” was someone to actually plan with; someone who not only cared about my ideas but was excited to make them happen. I thrifted over 100 vintage crystal glasses for our specialty drinks, she and her team set them up and it truly was the highlight of my night. Each guest was able to pick a “special” glass from the beautiful display she created. I left Lauren a garage full of personal items that I thought maybe some could be put to use. I showed up to my wedding to see literally every item incorporated into the day, from multiple hand painted signs and pictures, the glasses, over 100 vases, vintage trays, cornhole boards and numerous sentimental decor items, every single item I left was displayed. She has an unbelievable gift when it comes to making her weddings reflect each couple she works with. I had just about every guest not only tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been to, but also the most intimate. The intimacy is a reflection of the time she takes to get to know each couple and reflect them in every aspect of the day. Again, she planned this wedding in roughly 5 weeks.
Another service I didn’t realize how valuable it was, was her organization and timing. She took a massive weight off of our MCs. She created a timeline and executed it to perfection. Our MCs and those giving speeches could fully enjoy the night. When it was their turn to speak, Lauren found them, guided them and pumped them up.
Choosing your wedding planner matters. I cannot recommend Lauren enough or put into words the difference she made to our day. She is saved into my phone contacts as “savior Lauren” and it couldn’t be more accurate.
From our very first meeting with Twelfth Night Events, we knew hiring them as our wedding planners was essential for us. Shandi and Lauren were responsive and went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was very special. They managed our personality traits and understood our vision like the pro's they are.
Shandi was detail-oriented and could handle multiple tasks. She was a valuable asset to our wedding planning and re-planning due to the pandemic. Her knowledge, guidance and communication with vendors was top-notch and she was always smiling with a positive attitude at every meeting. Overall a great experience!!! Thank you so much. It made our 3 year engagement worth the wait!
Lauren and Shandi were a great team and were the sole contributors of an organized wedding day. Leading up to the big day, they were open to my annoying questions, meeting debriefs and walked us through the day/details as many times as we needed in order to feel comfortable.
The day off, they kept checking in on me to make sure I felt calm, hydrated, fed and that I had everything I needed. There are always little hiccups that happen, but as soon as they were noticed, Shandi and Lauren would run to the rescue and remedy before anyone could notice.
Isaiah and I are so grateful for your efforts and planning capabilities. You understood my vision and helped bring it to life. Thank you so much!!
As we sit here and reminisce on our wedding day 1 year ago, we can’t help but think over and over again how we made the right decision to choose Twelfth Night Events. We still remember the day we first met with Lauren and Shandi. It was an instant connection and felt like we’ve known each other forever. It was almost immediate that we knew this is who we were going to choose to spend the next 2 years of our engagement with.
One thing we told them was that we wanted my mom to do nothing, and to relax and enjoy the day. Lauren was our biggest advocate and always made us feel important. Her communication with us was outstanding and always replied to our e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner and she attended every meeting with us. Her expertise, knowledge and network within the event planning industry is superb. If you want something, she has a vendor for literally everything. She is very realistic with you and upfront about ideas. Something we bonded on, was the tiny little details. To us, those were huge! We lived for the seating charts, menus, table numbers, name tags and invitations, down to the quality of paper and ribbon we would use.
Lauren introduced us to our decorator, RL Designs. We met with him and Lauren on several occasions just to make sure the florals and designs were exactly what we wanted. Lauren did mock ups for us just so we could really visualize the day. These two have all the patience in the world.
In the end, they nailed our wedding day. Lauren was able to pull off a very smooth flowing wedding. She managed to be everywhere all at once and do so with grace. Lauren in the end did exactly as we asked…she won my mother over (she was skeptical of the idea of hiring a wedding planner) and made sure my mom enjoyed the day. She also gave my mom some tasks throughout the planning, just so she could also feel involved in the process.
It's been a year now and we miss the constant e-mails. TNE changed our outlook on wedding planners and it is because of Lauren that we tell everyone that they need to hire a wedding planner. Lauren and TNE will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
We simply cannot say enough amazing things about the Team at TNE! From our initial meeting to our wedding day, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, organized, attention to detail, great communicators, incredibly talented, and most importantly, FUN! We looked forward to our monthly zoom calls and had such a great time creating our vision together.
Our wedding day was everything and more than we ever dreamed of. It was perfect. We were able to be truly present on our big day and take it all in. We felt super relaxed and stress-free which was all thanks to Lauren and Shandi. They brought our vision to life and we were beyond thrilled with everything. We highly recommend using Twelfth Night Events!
Having Shandi as our wedding planner was by far one of the best decisions my husband and I could've made. I'm pretty organized and on top of things to begin with, but having someone there to take over and ensure that my vision went according to plan was what I needed - and Shandi did exactly that, if not more.She was absolutely exquisite, and I didn't feel a lick of stress those three months leading up to the wedding.
The day ran as smoothly as possible, and having Shandi by my side to talk things through and ensure that no problems arose was absolutely amazing. Finding TNE and having them help with our special day was the best decision we could've made, and looking back at it now, I know I would've had many breakdowns without her so... Don't second guess hiring a wedding planner, and if you want the best of the best, Twelfth Night Events has you covered!
I cannot put into words how amazing it was to work with Shandi from Twelfth Night Events! She was such a pleasure to work with and always provided the best advice and suggestions! She was very knowledgeable on our venue, vendors, and was always able to answer all our questions. We had complete trust in Shandi's opinion and she worked very hard to make our wedding everything we dreamed of.
I felt like Shandi really understood me and it was nice to work with someone who cared just as much about the details as me! No detail was missed and the whole flow of the day was very organized thanks to the timeline Shandi put together for us. There was no way I would have gotten through my wedding day without Shandi she was very attentive and handled anything thrown her way with ease. I could not imagine my wedding day without TNE and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. I hope to one day work with Shandi again!
Lauren and Shandi went above and beyond to make our day everything we could have dreamt of. From our first meeting with Lauren, she took the time to understand our vision. Months of planning and meetings, we were amazed to watch Lauren at work bringing our vision to life.
The industry connections they have are a great asset as they were able to secure vendors to help create our dream day. Lauren and Shandi took the time to truly get to know us as a couple, understand our culture and importance of family. They truly care about their couples and what matters most to them. Looking back at our wedding now, we are forever grateful for TNE and all they did for us!
Lauren provided expert recommendations for vendors, event layout and event flow. I am highly attentive to detail, and had firm ideas on many features I wanted to include on my wedding day. This required Lauren and her team to be patient, creative and nimble. On the day-of, Lauren and Selena delivered on my vision; one I had been holding onto for over three years! Every detail was perfectly executed. She ensured I did not have to worry about a single thing, so I could fully immerse myself in enjoying the wedding day, just as I had hoped.
When hosting “à la carte” weddings like ours, there is so much more required in terms of planning. We brought in every amenity to host the outdoor wedding of our dreams on our private property, which added so much meaning to our day, but also so much extra work for Lauren and the Twelfth Night team. Even in sweltering August heat, the team did not waiver. They went above and beyond to make sure all the complex elements of our day came together in unison, worry-free. I recommend Twelfth Night Events to anyone seeking experienced, caring, trustworthy, reliable and creative wedding planners. Leave it to the pros to manage your planning and day-of stressors, so you can don’t have to. You won’t regret it!"
We had the absolute pleasure of having Lauren and Shandi plan our wedding last fall! They understood our vision and brought it to life so effortlessly. They were very transparent about how we were tracking to our budget and helped us find creative ways to stay on budget without compromising our vision. We valued Lauren and Shandi’s honesty and transparency, and we truly trusted their opinion every step of the way. I am still in awe of their talent in making every tiny detail perfect.
They removed all the pressure from us by assembling a dream team of vendors. It was clear that they have extreme respect for their vendors and in return the vendors spoke so highly of Lauren and Shandi. We benefitted hugely from that mutual respect because the vendors wanted to go above and beyond for us out of their respect for Lauren and Shandi.
I never had to worry about how we were progressing because I knew Lauren and Shandi were on top of everything. The biggest compliment I can give them is that everyone kept commenting on how calm I was in the days leading up to the wedding and that’s because Lauren and Shandi had it all under control! They genuinely care about their clients and make them feel like they are the only ones. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day exactly what we wanted and for being such a joy to work with! Xo
I had a very detailed vision for our wedding day and I quickly realized I needed someone to help bring that dream to reality. Lauren and her tram were my wedding planning sounding board.
I would state my idea and they would do the background work, sourcing vendors, compiling pricing and providing me options. They have industry connections and know how to get exactly what you’re looking for! They would provide detailed task lists for me at each stage of the game to ensure I was on track - this was a life saver.
They share your vision. On the day of our wedding I was blown away with the result of how all of our ideas came to fruition - it was BETTER than I could have ever imagined! The attention to detail was in each element and it all came together so polished and flawless! If you have a dream for your wedding day, Lauren and TNE swill make it come true!
After getting engaged, I knew booking Twelfth Night Events was a must! Lauren has planned many weddings that I’ve attended and I have heard nothing but good things!
Our first meeting with Lauren I immediately knew that she was the one, and knew how to achieve my fairytale vision. Lauren is extremely organized, professional and knowledgeable in all that wedding planning brings! She goes above and beyond to make every little detail count. Shocking enough, 3 months prior to our Big Day the venue we originally choose could not accommodate the number of guests we were having. Lauren was quick and efficient and knew exactly which vendor to contact for the perfect fit… and she did in such a short period of time! We were extremely happy with our change. Lauren made our wedding day run so smoothly! It was the best day ever!
Lauren is the fairy god mother of weddings. Booking Twelfth Night Event is a must
