"Where do I even begin? Laura has been a godsend. My husband and I could not be happier that we chose Laura to be our wedding planner for our special day. I highly highly highly recommend using Laura for your big day. She is the best planner in Atlanta, I can't imagine anyone doing a better job. She also has an eye for design and her ideas will help put your dream day together! When I walked into my wedding venue my jaw dropped to the floor, I couldn't believe how perfect it was and that it was my wedding! Laura put our dream wedding together and has such an amazing reputation with all the vendors in Atlanta. Weddings can be stressful but having Laura on your side will minimize your stress. She has an attention for detail and doesn't miss a thing! She has check lists for you to stay on task and focused and things will go so smoothly with her on your team. She will go above and beyond of what you expect a planner to do. I really cannot say it enough. I recommended her to my best friend after I had already booked Laura and she says the exact same things about her as I do! She is absolutely amazing and simply the best! If you want your dream day to come true than hire Laura! Don't think twice just do it, I promise you will not regret it!"

"Hiring Laura for our wedding was definitely the best decision we made during the wedding process! Throughout our wedding planning she provided many detailed checklists/timelines which were a huge help to keep me on track with everything and not feel stressed leading up to the wedding day. She 100% understood my vision and made wonderful suggestions and had creative ideas fitting my taste during all of our planning. She was also great at communicating not only with me but with vendors throughout the process. I always felt I could entrust her with the many decisions I had to make. She provided the most detailed day of wedding timeline that my parents, bridal party, vendors, and I all found extremely helpful. Everyone knew exactly when and where they needed to be during the wedding festivities. On the day of the wedding Laura was in full force and worked closely with all of my vendors to ensure the day ran smoothly. I felt calm and stress free because I knew Laura had everything under control. Laura helped execute and plan the wedding of my dreams and I will forever be grateful and truly miss working with her! I would highly recommend hiring her. She is by far the best!"
- Lowrey, Bride
"Laura was amazing! She was so easy to work with and kept me on schedule. She had a checklist for all different parts of the wedding from the preparatory phase till the end. She gave me direction, guidance, and helped me build relationships with the best vendors, which helped me make the right decisions without wasting time or money. Laura was always readily available to solve and to answer any questions whether it minor or major. She made my day magical. Laura exudes professionalism and creativity. It is solely because of Laura that my wedding weekend was the beautiful, magical day that I had always dreamed it would be. She went above and beyond my expectations by ensuring quality of service and unparalleled sense of pride in serving others. I honestly did not have to worry about one thing my entire wedding weekend. She took care of everything with a smile on her face while I enjoyed every moment of my special day! Do not underestimate all the details that are required to make a perfect wedding day. I could never have done it without Laura."
- Kim, Bride
"Laura, Thank you so much for all your help to make our wedding day go perfectly! You made it where we didn't have to worry about anything and could just enjoy the weekend. We received compliments from all the guests about how seamless everything was and we owe that to you! Thanks again!"
- Jenny & Andrew, Bride & Groom
"Laura Birney is fantastic! First off, you should hire a wedding planner. There is a reason that there are professionals who specialize in this business because there are a million tiny decisions to make and they have the expertise and know the vendors. Laura is the absolute best out there. She is incredibly sweet, flexible, accommodating, and creative. I am an attorney and was very busy on a case during the majority of planning a wedding for 200 people. Laura arranged everything with my vendors and happily rescheduled numerous meetings when I needed to. She is very knowledgeable about all the vendors and what is and is not a good deal. She really works to give you the wedding of your dreams and protects your interests in the process of dealing with all the vendors. Laura and her day off assistants ensured that our wedding day went perfectly. She handled everything and it all went smoothly. I was never worried or stressed during that day. She also thinks of every detail you need to know before the wedding. There is so much that goes into a wedding that you don't think about. To make sure everything goes perfectly hire a wedding planner. If you want the best, hire Laura Birney Events."
- Leanne, Bride
"Laura, There are no words to express our thanks. You turned the most important day in our lives into a fairytale! Thank you so much for helping me make my vision come true!"
- Hannah, Bride
"Laura Birney was a blessing during our wedding process. She took all the stress away from my husband, my mom, and me.. and if she was ever stressed, we would have never known! I was a bride with a vision of exactly what I wanted and she made that happen over and beyond my expectations! We even had to switch venues a month before the wedding because we received more than the expected 20% RSVPs and outgrew our venue. Laura worked with Lake Lanier Islands Resort and luckily moved everything to another venue with plenty of room for all our guests. David and I were a little hesitant about the move because we LOVED our original one, but Laura assured us it would be just as wonderful.. she was right, it was perfect! On the day of the wedding, I felt NO stress! Laura gives each member of the bridal party and family a full itinerary for the day of the wedding. It is down to the very MINUTE things should be happening. We were all so impressed and it made us aware of where were should be throughout the day and if we were on track with hair and makeup. She and her two assistants were so helpful and made our entire bridal party and family feel better about the day and the nerves. I recommend Laura Birney Events to every bride and every MOB! She was simply amazing!!! Thank you Laura!"
- Lindsey, Bride
"All I can say is hire Laura. She went above and beyond on all categories!! Even if it was something that may not have been in her normal job description, she still helped. She provided guidance every step of the way. Our wedding would not have been nearly as beautiful or as much fun if it were not for Laura. My husband and I feel that she was the best money spent at our wedding and we would 150% recommend her to anyone who is thinking of hiring a planner or coordinator to help with your wedding. She was so professional and knowledgable. She brought up things that we just never would have thought to do or not to do if it weren't for her and I am so thankful for all of her recommendations!!"
- Mandi, Bride
"I cannot say enough positive things about Laura Birney Events. She and her staff went above and beyond with each and every detail of the wedding. She thought of things that never even crossed my mind and clearly was very up to speed on wedding venues, vendors, current trends, best practices, etc. She was incredibly professional but also fun to work with - even my guests and family commented on her level of detail and how well everything went! Extremely happy with her service and would highly recommend her work - worth every penny!"
- Nicolette, Bride
"At first, I didn't see the logic in spending money on a wedding planner. I thought that I could do it all on my own. But, after hiring Laura Birney, I realized that there were so many little details that go into a wedding that there was no way I could do it by myself. Laura made sure that all of my wedding dreams come true and she helped alleviate so much stress by being the go between with my other vendors. If there were any mishaps or fires that had to be put out during my wedding I never knew about any of them. Laura is a kind, loving, creative planner that focuses on detail and really listens to you. I cannot imagine my wedding day without Laura Birney next to me and I would recommend her services to any bride who wants her dream wedding to become a reality... even the reluctant bride who doesn't think she needs a planner!"
- Marissa, Bride
"Laura was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond for all of our wedding wishes. Laura catered to our needs and made sure that everything we needed and wanted was in place for our wedding day.

- Carrie, Bride
"Thank you soooo much for everything you did for us; Anthony and I (and our families) truly appreciate it! You did a great job and we had such a blast!! We would not have had the great and beautiful time we had without all of your hard work!!"
- Cara & Anthony, Bride & Groom
"We thank you soooo much for being a part of our wedding day. I don't know what we would've done without you. Don't even want to imagine it!"
- DeAnn & Michael, Bride & Groom
"Laura was the perfect planner! She listened to what we had envisioned for our wedding day and executed it perfectly. When I had a last minute crisis or problem pop up she always offered a clever and creative solution. When I first started planning our wedding I did not think I needed a planner but as I started realizing all of the details of the day I started to get overwhelmed. Laura offers the perfect balance of supporting the ideas your already have and helping you create new ones. It was the best gift to myself because Laura offers a stress free wedding day- if a problem pops up she makes a great judgement call which allows you and your family to enjoy the once in a lifetime day! She is professional, honest, and loyal!"
- Rachel, Bride
"Laura was the most wonderful person to work with. She handled everything with ease and professionalism....she was always available for us at any time. We absolutely could not have survived with Laura's advice and expertise. The wedding went smoothly and beautifully and we didn't have to worry about a thing. I would recommend Laura and her staff to any bride out there! Thanks again, Laura!"
- Jana, Mother of the Bride
"When the bride hired Laura as her wedding planner, I asked if I could also use her to help with the rehearsal dinner after trying to deal with the resort myself and not getting answers. There were so many last minute changes and her knowledge and expertise helped with all of the decisions during those stressful last few weeks. The rehearsal dinner and wedding were a complete success and would not have been possible without Laura Birney."
- Kathy, Mother of the Groom
"I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you did for Cara's wedding. We loved the how the Grand Ballroom was decorated and the atmosphere was just how we wanted it! Everything was so much fun and I was able to enjoy the whole day! Thank you!!"

- Greg, Groom
"Thank you so much for all you did to help with the wedding - but also for all that you did to help my sister Kathy with her plans for the rehearsal dinner. She was under such unbelievable stress with her job - you were a lifesaver!!"
- Cheryl, Aunt of the Groom
"GLOW has done a zillion weddings and worked with about as many wedding planners. Laura Birney goes to the top of our list. First and foremost, she's fun, friendly, and nice. Wedding receptions can be stressful and often changes must be made with lighting speed. Laura calmly and gracefully helps the vendors, band, and facility work together to maneuver around obstacles. Some planners bully their way around. Not Laura. She's so nice, everyone wants to help. We become part of her team with the common goal of making the wedding the absolute best is can be. She is detailed to the max so we, the band, know exactly what to do when, where, and how. The unbelievable schedule was sent to us in plenty of time so we are well prepared - even the phonetic spelling of names to be announced - amazing. GLOW gives Laura our very highest recommendation."
- GLOW, Band
"After working with Laura I am amazed at how organized, detail-oriented, imaginative, and a person who possesses mature judgment, patience and the know-how to orchestrate your event.

She takes pride in her work and has a professional staff with a great work ethic that will go the extra mile to understand what the clients want in order to deliver a flawless event. Laura's favorite part of event coordinating is watching the couple, their families, and all of the guests enjoying the event without any worries and the satisfaction in knowing she helped contribute to that happiness."
- Pamela Holley, Floral Designer
