K&A Wedding | PALM SPRINGS, CA
We could not be happier to have found Lally to plan and execute our dream wedding! We worked with her for over a year and every step of the way we were so grateful for her. Lally made planning our wedding smooth, fun, and completely stress-free. From the very beginning, she made our dream venue work, even though their original quote was too high for us. She is an excellent negotiator, extremely organized, and has so many creative ideas that made our vision come to life. What was particularly impressive was that we were Lally’s first wedding in Palm Springs, since she is located in Northern California, and everything still went flawlessly. I always felt like she was on my side when roadblocks came up and she worked quickly to fix issues with outside vendors, budget, etc. She kept us on track the entire planning process, so we only had to do a handful of items each month. I never felt like there was a crunch time right before the wedding - by the time our wedding week arrived absolutely everything was taken care of thanks to her planning timeline. We got massages the morning of our rehearsal dinner, and never thought about a wedding detail from that point forward, thanks to Lally’s planning. I am usually Type-A and have trouble relaxing during big events, but I was truly the happiest and calmest I’ve ever been on my wedding day. My husband was a huge fan of Lally as well. Beyond being excellent at her job, she’s just a pleasure to be around. She’s funny, straight to the point, and super supportive. We could not have chosen a better person for the MOST important role of our wedding!

Hiring Lally Clark as our planner was one of the best wedding investments I made ! From start to finish, Lally is a joy to work with. Thorough, responsive, organized, and amiable - she helped bring my vision to life. Lally takes care of all the logistical details (contacting vendors, drawing up contracts), allowing the bride to focus on herself and the personal elements of a wedding. She does an amazing job of working within budget parameters, and her industry connections often garner vendor discounts. She has a keen eye for design that she respectfully offers (if asked), but never presses upon you.
On the big day, I had more than a few friends comment on how I was such a calm bride - I absolutely attribute this to hiring Lally! There wasn't a doubt in my mind that everything would go smoothly under her helm - I had nothing to worry about other than enjoying myself and making sure to take in all the love and beauty of the day.

Hiring Lally was the first and the best wedding decision we made! Lally took care of absolutely everything from helping us select our dream wedding venue to ensuring every detail was in place on the day of. She was extremely responsive, proactive, and accommodating throughout the entire process and she went above and beyond in every scenario – including graciously reviewing & replying to all 50 of my bridesmaid dress idea e-mails! Thanks to Lally's planning skills and unwavering calm I spent the last month before the wedding with nothing to do and was completely relaxed leading up to and throughout my wedding day. We can't thank her enough for turning our very raw ideas into a flawless day I could have never envisioned and for all the fun times planning that preceded it. Lally is truly talented and she genuinely loves love - her energy and happiness are contagious
J&N Wedding | NAPA, CA
After our daughter chose Beaulieu Gardens in Napa as her wedding venue, Beaulieu recommended three wedding coordinators to us. Our first call was to Lally. We didn't need to look any further - we felt an immediate connection, and knew she was the one! It turned out that our initial impression was right, we absolutely loved working with her. Lally is a warm, calm, well-organized, detail-oriented person. She was on top of everything from the get-go, helping us find fabulous vendors to work with, reminding us of important dates to have things completed by, and providing overall reassurance throughout the entire planning process!
On the wedding weekend, Lally had a big task, as the events were spread out over an expansive venue and the wedding party was large - 11 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen. Lally handled the rehearsal like a pro, which is not easy when you're organizing so many people. On the actual wedding day, she made sure our daughter and her fiancé had their dream wedding by overseeing every detail - properly and promptly. She took every worry out of the day, so we could just enjoy it all.
Thank you Lally and team for being part of such a special event for us, it couldn't have been a better day and we couldn't have found a better wedding coordinator!
K&A Wedding | Point reyes, CA
We engaged Lally as our wedding planner for our May 2016 Wedding and her contributions to our big day were invaluable. We had serious concerns about the support staff at our venue and wanted someone reliable we could count on to ensure everything went as planned for our wedding day. From our first meeting with Lally she put us completely at ease. She is organized, capable, genuine and puts the needs and desires of her clients first. She instantly gave us great suggestions for the vendors we still needed, provided helpful checklists and reminders of things we hadn't even thought about, and immediately lit a fire under our unresponsive onsite contact at the venue. Even things she wasn't directly responsible for she took on without being asked, determined to make sure everything went smoothly for us. Our wedding would never have gone as perfectly as it did without her help. One example is four days before the wedding the forecast suddenly changed calling for rain. Lally was on top of it and got us a great deal on a tent. She dropped everything to get on a call and walk us through our options and reassured us that it would still be beautiful. This is the quick responsiveness we experienced with Lally throughout our planning, even for the smallest of inquiries. We discovered couples end up spending a lot of time with their wedding planner, and spending time with Lally was like hanging out with a friend. She is warm, charismatic and has a great sense of humor. Simply put she is the best. We couldn't recommend someone more highly.
A&M Wedding | SAN FRANCISCO, CA
We are beyond grateful to Lally - the most amazing wedding planner and person!
We worked with Lally for a year to plan our wedding weekend in San Francisco - rehearsal dinner, wedding at City Hall and brunch the following morning. From start to finish - and ending with a wedding weekend more perfect and fun than we could have ever hoped for - she exceeded all of our expectations.
The wedding itself, which Lally designed, planned and produced, was beyond our wildest dreams. She has beautiful taste and we loved the ideas that she came to us with. Beyond that, she did a remarkable job at understanding what we were looking for and bringing it to life through every aspect of our wedding. We also could not have been happier with the team of vendors that Lally brought together for us. Through her relationships and recommendations, Lally helped us hire the most talented and remarkable teams and we feel lucky to have gotten to work with each of them.
Starting with our first meeting and throughout the year of planning, Lally was an absolute pleasure to work with. In the weeks since our wedding, I've actually missed getting to talk to her. She is incredibly organized and has impeccable attention to detail - knowing that she was always two steps ahead kept us relaxed throughout the year of planning. On the day of our wedding, things could not have gone more smoothly. When my now husband and I visited San Francisco City Hall to check it out as our potential wedding venue, we were a bit intimidated by how logistically challenging it seemed. But Lally and her team pulled it off without a hitch so that my husband and I and our families could just enjoy and celebrate what was the most magical night.
Looking back on our wedding weekend, my husband and I have frequently discussed that we wouldn't change a thing. We owe so much of that to Lally for her thoughtfulness, meticulous planning and stellar execution that made our wedding perfect.

We worked with Lally for our wedding in October 2015 and we can't say enough good things about her. We truly loved, loved, loved working with Lally!! Although we only hired Lally as a wedding coordinator for our wedding, she went above and beyond at all times. From fantastic advice and vendor recommendations to negotiations with vendors Lally took on everything. She was there every time we needed her and she held us accountable so that we stay on schedule. On the wedding day everything went flawless. Lally managed everything perfectly without any interference from us. It couldn't have been better. We're so grateful for everything Lally did for us and would definitely work with Lally again for any future event.
