After 25 years of marriage my wife and I decided to renew our wedding vows. I wanted to give her the wedding I could not give her when we got married (December 8, 1992). Darla originally wanted a summer wedding but that did not happen. I went to Lori Osborne of TLC Events & Weddings in February 2017 and asked if she could help me put together a vow renewal ceremony that would replicate a wedding. Lori said, “Let’s get started!”
As we went through the questionnaires and the details of what we wanted, Lori made it fun for both of us. Then it came time to make a change to the date – instead of December 8, I changed it to July 22 so as to give my wife her wish for a summer ceremony. Without fail, Lori stepped up and put together a plan to make this date happen. At this point Darla had no idea what to expect. We used our church for the venue and Lori (along with her assistant, Rachel Feltner) completely transformed our small church into a place of elegance, from the setting in the sanctuary to the décor downstairs for the reception.
As Christians, we had specific feelings and emotions that we want to emphasize and Lori met every need that could be thought of. It is in my opinion that she met our needs, wants and desires for this ceremony from the color scheme to the renewal ceremony itself. I want to thank TLC Events & Weddings for such an unforgettable event. As we left the church, we cried with tears of happiness for such a beautiful and elegant ceremony.Jeff & Darla; Fairborn, Ohio
“Lori helped us plan our wedding a few years ago and, even though it was a very small and simple event, we needed her to help ensure that everything was in order and that the day ran smoothly. Lori handled all of the decorations for both the ceremony and reception, and she created a timeline so that everything happened on time. We were able to fully enjoy our special day with no worries, and Lori made it beautiful and perfect for us! Being friends for many years, she did all the work at no charge to us, too!”A & S., Ohio
“I planned most of my wedding details myself, but needed help with coordinating everything on the day itself. Lori and TLC Events & Weddings stepped right in and created timelines and coordinated all of the food being prepared by friends and family members. She also oversaw the decorations and guided the wedding party through the ceremony. She and her husband, Terry, also provided DJ services during the reception. Lori took charge and handled everything with finesse so that I had nothing to worry about on my wedding day except having fun!”Marilyn S., Vandalia, Ohio
“Lori organized and ran my 16th birthday party. As the party planner, Lori demonstrated great imagination and innovation. She took a mundane murder mystery party and transformed it into something engaging and fun for the teenagers present. She invented games, snacks, and decorations (including a “dead body!”) to match the James Bond theme of the party. Looking back, Lori had an eye for detail that was easily overlooked by the teenage guests, but allowed for true immersion in the experience. The party worked seamlessly, and is a very fond memory for me.”Rachel F., Dayton, Ohio
“Lori is my wife and planned and executed a party for me to celebrate the release of my first CD album. She handled all of the invitations, planned the food and decorations, and executed the party unfailingly. The event took place in our small home and she resolved numerous issues such as providing additional seating, and limited counter space by having a board wrapped in a plastic tablecloth and placed over the sink. She planned a delicious menu of a wide variety of party foods that everyone enjoyed. The decorations were perfectly suited to the “theme” of the party, and everyone in attendance was relaxed, wanted for nothing, and had a wonderful time. She hired a baker who provided beautiful and extremely delicious cupcakes! She spent countless hours ensuring that this party was top-notch — something I know she will do for each and every client she encounters in her new event & wedding planning business.”Terry L.
