What makes Courtney Lawhon Events exceptional is the fact that Courtney Lawhon herself is exceptional. Courtney is genuine, creative, passionate, and kind. You will feel like you and your special event are top priority because to Courtney, you ARE her top priority! I have worked as an Event Planner in the NYC area for the past decade and know the challenges of coordinating events. I had the privilege of working with Courtney Lawhon Events on a number of occasions in the NYC area and was blown away by her ability to simply execute a multi-faceted, highly complex event! And best of all, she made it FUN. She never bullies you into an option that she likes best. She listens to your vision or can help you create a vision that truly reflects you. Courtney has lived on the east coast, west coast, has traveled extensively and is bilingual. These experiences influence her creativity and allow her to create truly unique, special and inclusive events. I am so excited to work with Courtney again in the near future – whether it be East Coast or West Coast or somewhere in the middle – I have the utmost confidence in her ability and know we will have a great time while we’re at it!
I wish I could find the perfect words to describe Courtney’s creative ability to put together an unforgettable event. She has the right touch to create an atmosphere of delicate beauty, sophisticated romance, and simple elegance. I love that she can coordinate a dramatic themed event or even polished and precise. She can fashion modern style with a vintage flare in a beautiful way. The way she designed my parents 40th anniversary with electrical spools for tables, wine barrels for decor, warm candlelight and a nice array of appetizers was just perfect for their taste. The hall for our friend's wedding reception went from dark and drab to sheer classic beauty, all because of her artistry. When we had our 10 year anniversary, Courtney planned such an amazing surprise for us. Our friends from two other countries were there, my sisters from across the country came, as well as our best of friends living nearby. They all awaited us in a sweet, little home full of wonderful appetizers, fresh recipe drinks from the “bar” in a joyful atmosphere . We enjoyed great drinks, great food, great ambience, with amazing friends and memories, all credit to an incredible planner. An evening we will always cherish. Courtney is talented and knows how to plan events with seeming simplicity. She has an eye to create beauty, and a passionate heart to fulfill a dream. She truly has the ability to coordinate events calmly. Her kind, warm smile, and caring nature makes her a pleasure to be around. She is amazing! I would highly recommend Courtney Lawhon Events to anyone. Every event will be truly memorable.
Courtney Lawhon Events was the perfect choice for our Annual Electrical Company party. Everything from the food, beverages, decor, entertainment and location were top notch. Everyone raves how this year's party was the absolute best that they have ever attended.
Let's just say, I didn't even want a wedding reception to begin with. Living in New York away from the majority of the many potential guests made me uneasy. New York was where my husband and I met but not where we would get married. I had always dreamt of having a destination wedding. But I was at a loss for how that would happen on such short notice.. After speaking to Courtney, she really made me feel everything would work out just fine. She would take on the worry and stress that comes with planning a destination wedding FOR US. I only gave her a basic idea of what style I was looking for and so many guests stated it'd been the most beautiful wedding they'd attended. Most importantly, I could trust that she would make everything run smoothly. So many of our friends and family lovingly wanted to have a share. Courtney checked in often to make everything come to life with their help. You know how everyone says "soak up each little moment because the day goes by in a flash"? You can only really soak everything up if you have someone like Courtney behind the scenes.
Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding. It was an amazing day, made possible largely by your efforts. I can't say enough about how happy we were with how everything turned out. The reception was beautiful and so well coordinated. From our perspective, it was completely stress free. Everything went just as planned, and the decorations were beautiful. There was so much energy at the reception, I've never witnessed a dance floor like that. You guys were great. I hope that you guys enjoyed it also. And also your help at the rehearsal was priceless. Speaking for Adriana and myself, our wedding day would not have been so perfect if it wasn't for you guys.
Having Courtney Lawhon Events work with us on our wedding day was invaluable! At the time, my husband (then fiancé) and I were living on opposite ends of the country and we could not have gotten everything organized in 3 months time if it hadn’t been for Courtney. She was with us every step of the way, helping us get our wedding time table organized, meeting/communicating with the vendors, and working with our budget. We love that she put so much effort into taking care of many small details we had overlooked. We also appreciated her insight, experience and creative wedding ideas. Her frequent updates and communication with us, made the whole experience stress free. We would recommend Courtney Lawhon Events to anyone thinking about having an event.
