Where do we begin with this incredible woman! Laura Ann brought our dream wedding to life! My husband Allan and I are from New York and we knew we wanted a beach wedding, but that was really all we knew we wanted. After hours of searching relentlessly for beach wedding locations throughout the country, we stumbled upon The Memory Maker in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Aside from being a beautiful beach home that allowed weddings on the beach, it lead us to discover Laura Ann EvCo. We read countless reviews that detailed Laura Ann EvCo's excellence as an event/wedding coordinator (bonus- we saw she had also worked with The Memory Maker in the past). As we are from Western NY and knew nothing about Ocean Isle Beach, NC (let alone weddings), we knew we would need help big time. We reached out to Laura Ann and instantly we were at ease, we knew we found our girl! Laura Ann was able to assist us with choosing the vendors that best matched our needs and kept us within our budget (you name it, she guided us in the right direction- catering, wedding cake, photography, floral, party rentals, etc). For two people going into planning our wedding with really no idea what we were doing or what we wanted, Laura Ann was able to create the wedding of our dreams and guide us through every step of the way. She would check in with us regularly to keep us on track, and really allowed us to relax through the whole process knowing that everything was getting taken care of. If we had questions (which we had lots of) she was always available to talk whether it be a quick email, text, or call. Laura Ann eliminated ALL stress the day of the wedding and truly allowed Allan and myself to 100% enjoy the day without one worry. Laura Ann was such a pleasure to work with and you can tell she genuinely has the bride and groom's best interest throughout the planning process. She is professional, organized, extremely creative, and SO much fun. She exceeded our expectations and continually went above and beyond what she was responsible for (example: when our 2 year old ring bearer was tired during pictures on the beach after the ceremony, she scooped him right up and held him while he slept for well over half an hour). Our family and friends loved Laura Ann as well, and now a month after the wedding, they are still asking about her! Thank you Laura Ann for bringing our dream wedding to life!

"Laura Ann was my saving grace! I couldn't have had the amazing wedding I had without her. She went above and beyond to make sure that every detail was perfect. She is so knowledgeable about wedding planning so it was great to have someone who could remind me of all the things I was forgetting. She suggested things that wound up to be my favorite parts of the wedding (like the awesome Italian Ice cart!!) She ran our whole rehearsal, making sure everyone knew where they needed to be and even had two back-up rain plans! I honestly couldn't have had the wedding I wanted and enjoyed it as much without her. I would suggest her to anyone looking for an amazing wedding planner!!"

"It is difficult to put into words how amazing Laura Ann truly is...as a former Mrs. United States and Mrs. International, I have traveled the world and attended events across the globe, to include, the World Travel Awards, and dinner in the Prague Castle. I have never met a more organized and "total packaged" event planner until I met Laura Ann. She truly thinks about every detail and she delivers on every promise...and more! My husband was amazed! He is an orthodontist and has two busy practices, if we had a Laura Ann to run the offices every day, life would be splendid indeed! I cannot say enough wonderful words about you, Laura Ann. If you are getting married, or have a special event to plan, I promise you, hiring Laura Ann is the best move we made!!!! We love you and are forever family! You are hired for life and I wouldn't think of doing another event without you by my side!!!! Lots of love!"

“Choosing Laura Ann as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made! She helped us make so many more good decisions along the way while always listening to our ideas and wishes. She is well connected with other local vendors which was great since we were planning a destination wedding and had limited opportunities to meet with vendors. She and her staff are super organized and professional. The coordination of the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception could not have been any better. Laura Ann is also the house manager for the beach house, Southern Comfort in OIB, where we stayed and held the wedding events. The venue is absolutely amazing!! Laura Ann even created our centerpieces for the dinner tables and has many decorative items to choose from. This talented lady does it all and does it well!! 5 star all the way!!
The best part is we feel like we made a friend. Thank you, Laura Ann, for all you did to make our special day the best day of our lives!

"I worked with Laura Ann at one of my favorite weddings. I instantly feel in love with her! Between her super sweet personality, her work ethic and passion for helping create not only beautiful weddings but a day filled with great memories...what's not to love! Even with the non-stop wind & impending rain, she made sure that all the decor was just as the bride had dreamed it would be. She was so helpful in making sure that the wedding day flowed seamlessly despite the weather. The most important attribute that I adore about Laura Ann is her desire to make sure that all the vendors are working together to ensure that the couple's wedding day is nothing short of perfect. Any couple that invests in Laura Ann's services will be taken well care of and will be so lucky!" ~ Christina Forbes Photography

Laura is one of the main reasons my wedding turned out to be as perfect as it did. I planned to just plan my wedding myself and at the last minute Laura saved my life. She is so organized, creative, and fun to work with. On my wedding day It was STRESS FREE because I knew she had it all figured out and she made me feel so reassured that everything was going to be perfect. Which it was. If you are planning a wedding I would definitely use Laura Ann EvCo. You won't regret it !
My children's wedding day was perfect! We are so thankful for the hours of work that Laura put into making our dreams come true. She is the most detail oriented and caring event planner anyone could ask for. ~ Angela Tucker
