If I could give her a 11/10 review I would! Lisa’s the best.

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa and her amazing team for my month-of wedding coordination, and I cannot express how grateful I am for their exceptional service! From the moment I met her, I could tell that Lisa was super attentive, easy to reach and had attention to detail, which immediately put my mind at ease during the wedding planning process. She had a super helpful wedding workbook she sent me early on that was pivotal in my planning process. She’s also super reasonably priced considering she had two assistants on the day of!

Throughout the entire month leading up to the big day, Lisa went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our wedding was flawlessly executed. Their exceptional organizational skills and meticulous planning truly made all the difference. From vendor coordination to timeline management, they handled everything seamlessly, allowing me to truly enjoy my special day without any stress or worries. :)

I would recommend her to anyone who’s looking for help for their big day, or even for a party. She’s 11/10 in my eyes and I can’t do enough to thank her and her team ❤️

Wu La La weddings & events should be on everyone's wedding planning wishlist

Lisa was amazing throughout the wedding planning process and on the day of the wedding itself. Because of the pandemic, we had to postpone our wedding twice and throughout all of that Lisa guided us through the process, re-coordinating with our vendors and giving us feedback every step of the way. She stayed calm, collected, and optimistic, which helped us mentally and emotionally during that tumultuous time.

On the day of the wedding, Lisa and her team (Natalie & Jennifer) were SO organized and helpful. I didn't need to worry about anything! I was told over and over again how calm I seemed because I truly was really calm! I put all my trust in Lisa & her team and the day went so smoothly (and I was told we were 1 hour ahead of schedule at one point!), I was able to enjoy every moment with my husband and our guests. Someone was always checking in with us, making sure we had water, drinks, food, fluffing dresses, fixing my hair, etc. It was wonderful and effortless! Even our guests noticed and asked us who our planner was because everything went so smoothly. We've already verbally recommended her multiple times throughout the night.

I would highly recommend Lisa & her team at Wu La La Wedding & Events! I couldn't have imagined the day without them.

10/10 Amazing Service!

Lisa made our dream wedding come true! Both my husband and I have really crazy work schedules and Lisa was there every step of the way to ensure that everything was covered and executed perfectly so we did not have any stress at all leading up to the wedding. Not to mention both we are a very last minute couple but Lisa was there to help get our sh-t together which is exactly what we needed with the remaining weeks we had. Working with Lisa was wonderful! She responds so quickly, works so proactively, and is so knowledgeable within the industry. I was able to agree with all of her suggestions and trusted that she would execute everything with ease. What differentiates Lisa from others is her passion and joy she puts into her work. She always puts the couple first and always ensures that whatever we plan for the wedding made us happy and aligned with our vision.

Lisa, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all that you did for Michael and I. Our wedding day couldn’t have gone any better and we couldn’t be any happier with the turn out. You and your team are awesome!

With Love,
Christine

Best Decision EVER!

We hired Lisa Wu for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we've made for our wedding! She is incredibly organized, meticulous, timely and all at the same time amazingly caring! On the day of our wedding, I did not look at the schedule once as her and her team were able to keep us on track the entire day. This gave me the opportunity to just be in the moment for one of the best days yet and created for completely stress-free day! One of her assistants, Jen, was also very sweet - she would hold onto my (heavy) bouquet everytime we were waiting in cue for any of the key events. A HUGE THANK YOU to Lisa Wu and her team for making our wedding day that much more beautiful to enjoy. Applause all round!

Best Wedding Coordinator!!

Words cannot describe how fabulous and vital Lisa was for our wedding..but I will certainly try to find a few! We knew from our very first meeting that we had to have Lisa be our month-of-coordinator. She is so organized and attentive that even from early on, we trusted she will take care of everything! One of the many things I love about Lisa is that she responds to emails very quickly and in detail and actually answers every single one of my questions even though I have like 50 in each email! And though she was suppose to just be our month-of-coordinator, she was already involved way before just the month-of; giving us vendor recommendations, helping us navigate the planning process by answering the many many questions we had and just overall being a friend whenever I had bride-freak-out moments.
When it came time to the actual wedding day, in the morning while sitting in the chair getting my hair done, my mind was racing with all the things that needed to be done and happen, but then all of a sudden I had a moment of calm and told myself that Lisa will take care of it all..and from that moment on, I let it all go and just enjoyed everything...and Lisa did take care of absolutely everything!!! Every detail that we had planned for our wedding came to fruition and was exactly as we had envisioned. Even my bridesmaids were saying this was the easiest & most organized wedding they had been a part of because of Lisa and her team! Everything was truly perfect!

Brides out there, you need to hire Lisa right now for your wedding! Like really, RIGHT NOW!!

Day of Coordinator - Aug 25 2018

Lisa and her assistants Cindy and Natalie were amazing on the day of and throughout our entire wedding planning process. Lisa was highly recommended to us by another couple and now I know why. She is attentive, detail oriented, extremely organized, and truly cares about her clients. From our first meeting, she asked insightful questions and made detailed notes. She was responsive to my countless emails and even if she didn't know the answer, she would get back to me after performing research. I provided guidance to Lisa on the decor and how we want the day to flow and she made it happen. Her day of agenda was EXTREMELY helpful. We were debating whether or not to get a day of coordinator but I'm really glad we got one and that we chose Lisa. If you want to enjoy your day and have your ideas come to life then you should definitely go with Lisa! Thanks so much Lisa :)

Lisa is a godsend

Lisa was the month-of coordinator for my sister's wedding in August 2015 and after experiencing the timeline the first go-around, I knew I needed to have her plan my own, which took place yesterday. I cannot express how instrumental Lisa was for bringing about my dream wedding - it was insanely comforting to have someone so thorough and organized to tick and tie all the details and identify gaps. I would call and text in a panic and she would always be quick to respond and take time out of what she was doing to help. A big shoutout as well to her assistants, especially Cindy. Lisa and her team are thoughtful, prepared, thorough and at one point we were about 50 minutes behind during our reception and with their help and a few tweaks, we managed to buy back an entire half-hour. If that doesn't convince you that you're going to be managed by a crack team, I'm not sure what will. They not only met my expectations but exceeded it. Thank you so much, from the bottom of our newlywed hearts.

It was an absolute pleasure having Lisa as our month-of coordinator for our wedding. She is extremely passionate about what she does and totally goes above and beyond to ensure you are taken care of and happy. From the first meeting to even after the wedding, Lisa has been very responsive, communicated extremely well and was organized. Her spreadsheets has everything in one place and was a total lifesaver throughout the wedding planning process. Thanks to Lisa and her wonderful team, my husband and I enjoyed our wedding and did not experience any stress at all. My wedding was less than 50 people, and yet there's still there's are a lot of moving parts that go on behind the scenes. Lisa ensured that everything was under control and went smoothly. The clasp on my dress broke and she saved the day with her emergency kit!! Thanks so much Lisa for helping to make our Wedding truly memorable and special.

Lisa was fantastic to work with. I engaged her as my day-of-coordinator as well as vendor sourcing for a florist and event decorator. From beginning to finish, Lisa was responsive and communicated with us regularly, ensuring we were in the loop on all changes and decisions. Areas Lisa particularly excels at in is her passion as a wedding coordinator - she made our wedding special and memorable. Closer to the wedding date, Lisa helped us identify items we missed and was able to help us source them without a hitch - such as the candles, the reserved signs, the sparklers.

On the day of, Lisa and her assistant Cindy worked around the clock to ensure everything was set up as planned and the evening went according to schedule, amongst many other things. We are very appreciative of your work Lisa - thank you so much again.

Hello! My name is Ruth and my husband and I got married on July 30, 2016 :) We got engaged in the summer of 2014, but by the time fall came around, we still hadn't done any wedding planning!! My cousin introduced me to Lisa and said she would help us get started and keep us on track. Honestly, planning our wedding with Wu La La Wedding & Events was one of the greatest experience of our lives! Lisa is great communicator and she is extremely organized. She went above and beyond our expectations and really helped us every step of the way. For example, when we were picking vendors, not only did she suggest good and reputable companies to us, she came to all the meetings and had appropriate questions and printouts ready to go. She followed up on a timely basis with each vendor that we chose, and continued to have good relationships with the companies that we didn't hire. She was flexible and conducted face-to-face and phone meetings as needed and was extremely patient and in explaining all the questions we had about planning a wedding. She helped reduce the stress on our rehearsal and wedding day and completely took care of the wedding day so that we and our guests could truly enjoy every moment.

We would highly recommend Wu La La Weddings & Events as a company for any type of event planning! When we plan our 5- or 10-year anniversary, I can only hope that she will be available to do it with us all over again!!

Lead Planner and Owner

Hi! I'm Lisa. The owner and lead planner. I run this business on my own but have a great team of associates that help me on the event day. Throughout the planning process, I will be your sole contact and I hope to make the journey joyful and stressfree for you.

A little bit of my background. I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a Minor in Marketing. I have over 10 years of experience in the fashion textile industry and 6 years (and counting) in the wedding industry. I used to run a garment manufacturing business with my family that has been around for over 30 years before I started this business in wedding and event planning. Many of the skills I gained from running a medium-sized garment manufacturing business has helped me build this business.

I discovered my love for wedding and event planning by planning my own wedding in 2012. So as a previous bride myself, I can truly understand the tight budgets, amount of work, and the stress that goes into planning the wedding of your dreams. I truly believe that your wedding should always be thoughtfully and meticulously executed while joyfully celebrating your most treasured moments because life is short and you want to have fun living it!
