Lindsay (Simply Sunshine Events) was a genuine lifesaver in our wedding planning process. My husband (Mike) and I decided to get a wedding planner when we were about 2 to 3 months into wedding planning. We had picked our ceremony and reception venue and had worked out a few vendors, but did not really have a vision or idea of how to go about the rest of the process ourselves. I read about Lindsay on another review and instantly knew she would be someone that both my husband and I would easily get along with through the wedding planning. When we first met Lindsay, my thoughts were confirmed. Not only is she kind, sweet, and relaxed (in a great way!), but she's really knowledgeable about wedding planning and event design in general. Lindsay made it a priority to get to know Mike and I as a couple as to better put our ideas, our style, and our interests into our wedding. Within the first couple weeks of meeting her, she created 3 visions of our wedding that she felt suited us, which was amazing to see put together. From there, she gave amazing recommendations for vendors, discussed options very clearly with us, gave great visuals, and was ALWAYS available to communicate via email and phone as well. Both my husband and I work full time and we never had to worry about things getting done with Lindsay as our planner. She is driven, efficient, honest, and super creative. The month, week, and days before the wedding were seamless because Mike and I did not have to worry about anything. We were able to fully enjoy the most important day of our lives thanks to Lindsay AND her amazing team! And to top it all off, the wedding was PERFECT!! :)

Lindsay is the best, most patient, most helpful, incredible, organized, kind, and thoughtful person. I’m not exaggerating when I say, our wedding would not have happened without her. She was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. She understood our vision and then took it to the next level to create the most beautiful day for my husband and I. From the beginning, Lindsay was always so attentive, making sure that at every stop of the process we were happy and getting exactly what we wanted.
We got married in May in NYC, and going into this process, my husband and I had no idea where to start with vendors or pricing, but Lindsay was able to give us her top recommendations for each, which turned the process into something very easy, simple, and fun. We didn’t stress about anything and Lindsay always sent us reminders to make sure we stayed on schedule, which was so helpful since my husband and I have very crazy work schedules.
The day of the wedding I didn’t have one stress in the world because Lindsay had planned out everything down to the minute. And if I had a question she was there instantly. There’s so much more to say but honestly, she made our wedding planning process and our wedding day extraordinary and it wouldn't have been possible without her.

I struggle to put into words how much my husband and I enjoyed working with Lindsay. She is a true visionary and worked magic with completely anti-wedding couples such as ourselves. Lindsay understood everything we wanted (and did not want - and there was a LOT we did not want). The year we worked together couldn't have been less stressful and on the big day, you could truly see Lindsay loves what she does. My relatives and friends still can't get over the enchanting theme and event she helped plan with us. Magic.

Lindsay was a godsend during our year and a half of wedding planning. There’s no way we could have pulled it off without her. She was so on top of everything every step of the way and took the pressure off our shoulders. My husband and I are eternally grateful as we’re not much of planners ourselves. Our situation had the potential to be catastrtrophic (getting married in the middle of upstate New York with half the wedding guests coming from South America), but Lindsay ensured that not only was everything absolutely perfect, the entire planning experience and day of seemed flawless and exceeded our wildest wedding dreams. We got married four months ago, but people are still talking about how gorgeous the event was. None of it would have been possible without Lindsay. She is so passionate, creative, caring, and a joy to work with. If you’re on the fence about getting a wedding planner, do it...and choose Lindsay. You can thank me later.

Me and my husband had absolute NO idea what we wanted for our wedding. Shortly after we got engaged, we started looking at wedding review sites for vendors and felt so overwhelmed by the choices. We were lost, felt under prepared and didn't know where to start. After receiving a recommendation from our friend, we quickly got in touch with Lindsay from Simply Sunshine Events. Not only did she make it a point to get to know us personally and made sure she understood exactly what we were looking for, she designed one beautiful wedding! The vendors she recommended were an incredible fit for our style and personalities and did a phenomenal job. With Lindsay and her team by our side, we knew we were in great hands. They effortlessly (well, we know it was a ton of effort but they made it look like a breeze), navigated the ins and outs of our venue (which was a blank space and had to bring e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and everyone in) and made it the most beautiful space we had ever seen (think Style Me Pretty and the type you see on Pinterest!).

On our wedding day, let's just say it could have easily quickly gone south. It started to pour with incredible wind in the morning (we had an outdoor ceremony) and we were incredibly nervous. Lindsay and Co. made sure that we weren't just prepared with a plan A, but a plan B, C (you get the picture). Luckily, the sun came out, but without Simply Sunshine Events, we would have been an absolute wreck. I have never felt more taken care of (my husband echoes the same sentiments) and really, if it had rained, we still would have had a rockin' party!

Our wedding day, and all of the time we worked with them leading up to our wedding day, was simply amazing. We are the lucky ones to have been able to work with Lindsay and Simply Sunshine Events and cannot thank them enough for the professionalism, honesty, eye for design and all of the little details, but most of all, for taking the time to get to know us. We love you!! Thank you!!
