Lara, you are the best. You made everything go perfectly! The planning was worth it and I was able to let everything go knowing that you would handle it. It made my weekend fabulous!
We are so appreciative of all your efforts and your organization that was so relaxed we never realized that you were herding cattle! You are amazing. Thanks you so much. We will miss you.

We cannot begin to thank Allison for all she did to ensure Liz and Lou’s wedding to be such a huge success. She was a guiding light throughout the year and we are forever grateful for all Allison did to make it such a memorable day for all of us.
Her willingness to be available, to listen, to offer her professional opinions and expertise were remarkable. We felt we were always in good hands and most importantly, her advice, wisdom (and humor!) played a big part in keeping our ship on course and steady… especially if we ever ran into stormy seas!;)
We would highly recommend your services to anyone who inquired as to your high standards and your exceptional ability to provide the best of wedding planning services.

Lauren made planning my wedding and the big day better than we ever could have imagined. I was pretty clueless going into the planning process. I lived in WI for the first 10 of 15 months and not coming from Chicago, I knew nothing. Lauren helped with everything. She got a great understanding of what I was going for right at the start (even though it changed). She suggested and scheduled with outstanding vendors. It was often tough to decide between excellent choices. Lauren was incredibly organized. She had all our vendor payments outlined and a schedule for the day down to the minute. She dealt with all that tedium that I would have been terrible at. On the day of my wedding I had absolutely zero stress. Lauren and her team were there all day. The day was so perfect. I will have life long memories of not only how much fun the day was but how fun the whole planning process was, thanks to Lauren.

Lauren and her team at LK events were absolutely amazing and helped my husband and me plan the wedding of our dreams in 9 short months. We knew that this would not be an easy task, but Lauren made the process fun and effortless.
From start to finish, Lauren performed at a superhuman level. She helped us choose our venue, connected us with fantastic vendors, negotiated contracts, created minute by minute timelines for the bridal party and vendors, and assured that everything promised was delivered.
She’s a true professional: creative, responsive, attentive, detail-oriented, and calm. If there were any issues before the wedding, or day of, I would have never known. Lauren handled it all with grace. We always refer to Lauren as “the best”! She truly deserves this recognition and I would highly recommend her to plan any event! She was, by far, the best decision we made.

Allison, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for us. You made my life so simple and to say I couldn’t have done it without you would be a major understatement. Ladd is right, everyone had stories on Sunday of how instantly things were handled. I knew from the minute we met that we would all enjoy working with you! What a magical day. I can’t tell you how many of Lucy’s and Nate’s friends said it was the BEST wedding they had ever been to.

Brian and I wanted to express our gratitude to LK Events and Allison DeKnight Young for the most incredible day either of us could have possibly imagined! Allison was with us all the way and helped us when we were struggling to articulate our vision, not to mention all the other little details she and your team took care of!! Our vendors were amazing and in the rare occasion we were getting anxious about anything, Allison took it head on to ensure a perfect delivery!! We had a lot of laughs along the way and formed special bonds that cannot be taken away!

I knew Lauren was a type-A, on-top-of-it, efficient planner almost instantaneously. She is the consummate professional and loves what she does, which is all the more apparent in the weddings she assists in creating. Lauren and I emailed constantly–I always felt like I could go to her for anything, that I knew what was going on, and rarely had to check in for updates. She took our vision to heart and helped us select the perfect, trustworthy vendors to execute it. She was genuinely excited and enthusiastic throughout the 10 months we worked together (which made us even more excited) but remained completely cool, calm and collected at our wedding, which was essential. Lauren was poised and ready to tackle anything we sent her way. She was always impeccably prepared–I loved that her binder for our wedding legitimately included print-outs of basically every email I sent her in case we needed to reference something in meetings. My husband says it bests: He didn’t think we needed a wedding planner until he met Lauren.

Lauren was the reason my husband and I (as well as our 300 guests) had a perfect, magical, modern, elegant, and amazingly fun wedding! Lauren has a passion for life and specifically event planning. Besides the fact that she is young, fun and not to mention super talented, she will take the jumbled ideas in your head and turn them into a wedding day that exceeds every expectation of perfection you ever had. I think the most important thing to note about Lauren is that she doesn’t have preconceived notions about how a wedding should be. She makes them as unique as the two of you are as a couple. She is organized, diligent, enthusiastic, and will truly feel like your best friend through the entire process!
