Hiring Lindsey and her team at Lovely Day Events was the best investment we made for our destination wedding in Napa! She was prompt, organized and an absolute joy to work with. Our monthly check-ins kept the planning process on pace – helping make decisions, offering ideas, and keeping things organized all while calming my nerves... My wedding day was better than I could have ever imagined – beautiful, fun, organized and CALM. I was able to fully enjoy my day because I knew Lindsey and her team were taking care of every last detail. We were able to spend our day focused on our family, our guest and each other. Hiring Lindsey and Lovely Day Events was the single best decision we made during the planning process!
