"Save yourself all the trouble in the world and hire Lennie as your wedding coordinator! Lennie made the day extremely easy and enjoyable, making sure to have everything, and then some, covered from start to finish! She was extremely detailed throughout the entire process; showing up to the rehearsal dinner with printed packets and diagrams so everyone knew where to go and what to do. It was wildly impressive, and much appreciated, as she has an incredible talent and an eye for detail that not many are capable of. Lennie took care of every logistic, ensuring that me and my husband could enjoy the day, each other, and our friends and family that traveled from near and far. The bridal suite was beautiful, and I was pleasantly surprised by the day of survival kit she had laid out, filled with last minute items you might not think you’ll need, and would never plan to bring yourself, but she provided, and oddly enough many items were used! I can’t express my gratitude for how much she did to make the day what it was and I don’t have enough words to fully express my gratitude for all that she did to make our wedding PERFECT! I want to do it again and change nothing!! It was the best day, so far. Additionally she put a lot of time into ensuring our music and playlists were cued up and perfect before the big day – taking time to download every song just in case something went wrong with WiFi and the original plan failed! You’ll not find a better, smiling, happy, human that genuinely cares about you and your day, than Lennie!"

"Let me start by telling you, Lennie is THE best hire you will make for your Wedding day. Pro-Tip: If you can, hire her first. Hands down, she’s worth every penny. You can thank me later. As a new Bride sitting on the other side of a month of marriage, I look back on our Wedding day with nothing but fondness, peace, and joy. Residual emotions you only hope to have about your wedding, especially after an intense and stressful season of Wedding planning, and we owe SO much of that to Lennie. I think I might be safe in saying that you will not find another Wedding Coordinator/Planner that genuinely cares about you as a person, and will champion the vision of your day, as much as this incredible woman. If I had to guess, we had one of the most complex weddings Lennie has ever handled. From working through all that goes into dressing up a bare-bones wedding venue (i.e. the warehouse that is our Church), to my Groom building and setting up most of our lighting and decorations, and vendors buzzing about every which way, Lennie handled everything with ease, grace, and the biggest smile. Every one of our Vendors and Bridal Party members complimented her as they all felt extremely informed and cared for by her. “What was the day like for the Bride and Groom though?”, you might ask. I, the Bride, spent most of the morning sitting in the Bridal room, as my Bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done, only focusing on the overwhelming fact that it was my Wedding Day. That in and of itself says a lot. My Groom did the things he needed to do to ease his own nerves, like setting up the lights in the ceremony and reception areas, but then he handed everything off to Lennie. And off we went. After a few detail-intensive planning meetings, we trusted that she had everything taken care of and that under her direction things would go smoothly. And wow, did they ever. There was not one moment when we felt rushed or stressed about anything on our day. We got to be present on our Wedding Day and that is truly the best gift any vendor or friend can give a couple. From her planning documents to her loving check-ins on the day, and all the details in between, you will find a friend and champion in Lennie that you simply won’t regret. We could not recommend her more."

"Big or Small... Lennie is the one!! Although my wedding was small, there was still so much to consider, plan, remember and follow through in order to make our day special. Having Lennie from the very very beginning helped me in all the things I would have never considered or thought to ask. Lennie kept details of everything which made everything flow in a superior way. If there was a hiccup I was never aware of it!"
Zach & Elizabeth Prutch, Denver Colorado
"I couldn't be happier with Lennie as our day of coordinator and wouldn't have wanted anyone else by my side on my special day. She is more organized than anyone I've ever met, smiles all the time and truly cares about her bride and groom. Lennie made the planning process so easy and fun from the moment we started working with her. She was more than a day of coordinator, she was a part of my wedding. Lennie made me feel like the most special bride she's ever worked with and that made my day. Her attention to detail and special surprise touches on wedding day make her the best!"
Jason & Laura Boley, Dallas Texas
"Working with Lennie was like a dream come true. We really don't know what we would have done without her. Both before the wedding, during preparations, and on the wedding day, she took all of our scattered thoughts and ideas and painted one clear, beautiful picture for us and all of our guests to enjoy. As a bride, I knew I could hand over anything I felt was stressful to her, whether it was communicating with vendors, organizing family or working through my endless checklist. She was my biggest fan and supporter throughout the whole process. Even now, one year later, our guests still rave about how beautiful, peaceful and full of joy our event was. We know none of that would have been possible without the phenomenal coordination of Lennie Gunder."
Zach & Effie Ginsberg, Denver Colorado
"When I was planning my wedding I thought I had everything figured out. I enjoy party planning and I had most of the details taken care of... Or so I thought! A couple of months before the big day I had a bit of a panic attack about how to bring everything together. I was the bride, so I couldn't be running the show during the wedding. There were also things I had no clue about, such as the rehearsal. Like I said, I couldn't be the star and the director of my production! Oh no! Luckily Lennie was recommended to me by a family member. Her positive attitude, radiant smile, and take-charge style were just what I needed to bring it all together. She reviewed every detail of my wedding plans, asked helpful questions, and provided solutions to problems I didn't even realize I had. It was the constructive troubleshooting I desperately needed. Lennie provided a sense of calm and control to a highly stressful life event. She ran the rehearsal like a bubbly drill sergeant and had everyone in their places and on task. She developed a contingency plan for the ceremony as well, in case of inclement weather. Luckily the weather worked out for us, as did everything else. The day of the wedding was a blur to me, but I know everything went exactly as I had wanted. It was only after all the glitter and cake crumbs settled that I knew just how hard Lennie had worked to make my day special. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any type of wedding planning or coordinating, or other events for that matter. My personality makes it hard for me to ask for help, but I am so glad I did. Thank you again, Lennie!"

"Planning a wedding can be very stressful as a bride. Lennie is one of the most detail oriented people I have ever met. One of the greatest gifts to give a bride on her wedding day is to just simply enjoy it. Lennie thought of everything so that I could enjoy my day. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator to be personable, enthusiastic, welcoming, organized, assertive, and loving with us and our guests."
Jeff & Terri Eggebeen, Lakewood, Colorado
"Having Lennie as a part of our wedding day was amazing. Weddings can be stressful and having Lennie as a part of our special day put us at ease. Her ability to take care of important tasks and effortlessly deal with problems allowed us to enjoy our celebration while she dealt with the nuances. Lennie made our wedding day feel effortless and I can easily say that it wouldn’t have been the same without her. Her professional attitude, fun loving spirt, and positive energy make her a joy to work with."
Wedding Vendor Testimonials
Mothers of Bride/Grooms
"As Mother of the Bride, the last thing you want is to be bogged down with little (or big) glitches on your daughter's wedding day! Thanks to Lennie, our family was able to focus on enjoying the wedding preparations, the day of, and even the day after. Lennie took care of every little detail, from making us feel welcome and special as we arrived at the venue to change, to being right where we needed her throughout the ceremony and reception, to arriving at our home the next morning with all the wedding gifts, leftover décor, etc. She is a delight to work with - always positive and on top of everything. Hiring Lennie as your "Day of" planner is money very well spent." Jackie Norris Mother-of-the-Bride
Photographers & Videographers
"As a wedding photographer, I often find myself in what feels like the "wedding planner" position on the wedding day. I’ve been the one to keep the schedule, to keep the bride & groom, wedding party, and family on task and sometimes it feels very overwhelming! The one wedding that I photographed where Lennie was the planner was probably one of my easiest weddings ever. Lennie was very communicative and ping'd me when it was time to transition to the next thing which really allowed me to be in the moment and photograph what I needed to without constantly thinking about the timeline. She made an awesome Google Spreadsheet before the wedding that had everything you ever needed (the schedule, the vendors, every detail) which was so helpful to know what to expect the day of. Then on the day of she was sweet but assertive in the nicest way so that I knew what to do when and I, as a vendor myself, felt very taken care of!" "As a vendor it was refreshing working with a kind wedding planner verses a boss telling me what I can and cannot do! I definitely feel like not only can Lennie get along with all your vendors but she can make them feel cared for and even inspired to go above and beyond on the wedding day since she is setting such a great example! Definitely pick Lennie and you won’t regret it!" Alicia Lewin | Alicia Lewin Photography, Westminster CO
It was such a pleasure working with Lennie! As videographers we rely greatly on the wedding coordinator to help keep everything moving and in order. Every little moment was planned to the T and Lennie easily kept us, the couple, and the photographer in the loop throughout the night. She knows how to keep the day on track even with all the bumps that come along during a busy day. Plus she is such a kind hearted soul and a joy to work alongside. We look forward to working together again in the future. Kaylyn & Holden | Royal Oak Films Videographers
"I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Lennie. Her professionalism coupled with her ability to remain upbeat and attentive to clients’ needs was truly unique. From start to finish, she was a true team player and committed to perfection. As an event photographer, I work with a variety of different professionals and would not hesitate to recommend her for any event planning need. I hope to work with her again soon."

"I recently photographed a wedding and had the pleasure of working with Lennie. From the very beginning, I was impressed with her great communication and attention to detail. From the walk through, through the wedding day I found Lennie to be a joy to work with as she orchestrated the details of this couples big day. I would highly recommend Lennie to anyone planning a special celebration. Go enjoy your event and let Lennie handle the details. You will be so glad you did!" Donna Sweetin | Sweetin Photography
“In my 30 years as a Pastor, I have done countless weddings and worked with many wedding coordinators. I believe Lennie Gunder is by far the most organized, detailed and thorough wedding coordinator I have ever had the privilege of working with. Not only will Lennie coordinate your wedding with excellence, she is a joy to work with as well. You will not go wrong partnering with Lennie to coordinate your big day!” Todd Hudson | Executive Pastor | BridgeWay Church
"I am writing to recommend Lennie Gunder who is one of the most dedicated and efficient (event-planning) administrators I have known throughout my thirty-five years in ministry. In the past two+ years, I have witnessed Lennie in action, organizing all the many details for all Board of Directors Meetings & Task Force Meetings, making sure everyone makes their connections to and from the airport, setting up all lodging and meals, and generally keeping things running smoothly. One of these Board Meetings took place out of the country in Montreal, Quebec Canada, which added extra challenges (language barrier, etc.); however, Lennie handled the situation with grace and expertise. Her management acumen was a real treasure to the Missions Door organization and everyone on the Board of Directors appreciated her skill and the joy with which she performed her tasks. As a leader, she was invincible as she took initiative, delegated work to just the right people and followed up effectively. In short, Lennie’s high caliber and deep administrative capability set her well above others. During her tenure, I was really impressed by her passion, her professional demeanor, and her meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend Lennie Gunder." Doug Geeze, Lead Pastor of Faith Church in Auburn MA | Chairman of the Board of Directors and Strategic Task Force of Missions Door

"I loved working with Lennie! She was a fantastic person to work with. Not only was she prepared and had a beautiful plan ready to go, she was also flexible and professional when the plan changed a bit. She made sure everyone was comfortable with their roles and made sure that every person was ready to go when the wedding began. Lennie is respectful, responsible, professional, creative and fun! I would definitely recommend her for any event!” Kevin Odnoralov | DJ, Kevin Aleksander Music
