I would highly recommend Elexis at Placid Planner! With attention to detail and planning ahead my daughters dream wedding was a reality. We were thrilled to just enjoy the day of the wedding knowing Elexis was there to take care of all our needs. She works tirelessly for her clients so that every attention to detail is taken care of.
Our destination wedding in Lake Placid would never have been as perfect as it was had we not hired Elexis (placid planner). We are from the west coast and were only able to visit Lake Placid 1x during our 15 months of wedding planning, but that was never an issue because we had our local planner within minutes of our venue to assist in our absence. From very specific venue image requests to actual Facetime videos from our venues and a "menu tasting", having a local dedicated to our wedding was priceless. We didn't know this at the time of booking, but our venue turned out to be pretty hands-off, often times non-existent during planning, slow to respond to emails and the contact changed multiple time. Had we not hired Elexis to handle her role and essentially all of the services we expected our venue to provide, we are certain our wedding day would not have been everything it was.
We worked with Elexis and our venue to select a date that worked for all three of us. After this Elexis assisted us with selecting all of our vendors and initial rental items. She also kept us on track with a wedding excel, monthly schedule of items to complete and a very detailed wedding weekend timeline. On the wedding day, Elexis and her partner Wes arrived first and departed well past our own departure. Our wedding day items were returned to us in the manner they were provided, so loading up the cars to leave was much easier.
If you are reading this and you are having a destination wedding in Lake Placid, I encourage you to make room in the budget for Placid Planner. It will save you money and so many stresses in the end.
We had the destination wedding of our dreams in Lake Placid this fall and the day went perfectly thanks to Elexis and her extremely detailed planning, for not 1, but 2 years. We were one of her many couples that had to postpone from 2020 to 2021 due to the pandemic, and all we can say is that we couldn't have done it all without Elexis. Our venue completely shut down and let their entire staff go in the spring of 2020, so having Elexis by our side the entire time was absolutely priceless. Her high level of care for our wedding being as perfect as possible and just how we dreamed of was clear from the day we had our first call and that feeling never went away. If anything, it's even stronger now that we can look back on all her dedication and hard work.
Sadely, and be wary, but our venue didn't care about us and we were passed from one venue contact to another over an almost 24 month period. Some had zero wedding or event experience at all. We contacted the GM and continually begged for the venue to pay more attention to us, but nothing changed and we relied heavily on Elexis instead. Our venue wedding contact at the time of the wedding did NOT even show up on our wedding day and she didn't inform us of this until 2 days prior. We never met her, just an older man who said he was in charge now. Then we never really saw him again either. Elexis went above and beyond when we arrived and played as much of a venue role as possible without actually serving the food. We did see her clearing and watering our sweetheart table and I am certain she cleared our salad plates as the venue staff were 100% non-existent on the wedding day. Very understaffed with very slow service. She did far more work than we hired her for, but never made us feel like we owed her more. Elexis filled the major void that our venue did not care to fill from the absolute day 1.
Not sure how any couple can plan a wedding of any size in Lake Placid without hiring a knowledgeable local planner. The investment in Elexis actually saved us so much stress and money in the end and it made our wedding day and the planning leading up as perfect as possible. Beware of venues that suggest that you do not need a wedding planner. You 100% need someone solely working for you that only has your best interest in mind, if you want to have as stress free of a mountain wedding as possible.
Hiring elexis was the best decision we made. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Elexis and I cannot imagine what our wedding would have been without her. She knew our venue better than anyone and worked incredibly hard to give us the most amazing wedding. Elexis goes above and beyond in every single way, whether it be driving to another state to try a baker or finding the perfect cake stand on etsy or literally cleaning the bridal suite while the bride and groom dance...she's a magic making machine and truly cares about her clients and the events she plans.
We began planning with Elexis at the start of covid for a June 2021 wedding at the Lake Placid Lodge. Elexis helped us navigate many, many issues with the venue and all of the constantly changing NYS covid regulations. Every single tiny detail was thought of; details that we never, ever would have thought of on our own. Elexis helped us with everything down to flatware, linens, the hunt for perfect chargers, and flowers and candles that I knew nothing about. She came up with multiple floor plans that would optimize the space and guest experience, she found us transportation for our welcome party, helped with rehearsal dinner and sunday brunch planning, gave us welcome bag ideas, and recommendations for the best vendors the area had. Thanks to her guidance, we were able to book amazing vendors with time to spare and did not have to book any second choices. The timeline she provides is excellent and will keep you on track to have the best wedding ever.
Elexis works tirelessly for her clients throughout the planning process and throughout the event as well. It was raining on our wedding day (plan A was outdoor ceremony) and Elexis came to me and told me that the venue was adamant about setting up our ceremony indoors, and asked if I still wanted to try for an outdoor ceremony. I told her I did, and about five minutes later I saw the chairs being set up on the lawn. Elexis was there with us late into the night/early into the morning making sure everything was going off perfectly and getting things ready for our brunch the following day. She even cleaned up our bridal suite and made sure we had extra wedding cake slices in our mini fridge.
Long story short: If anything went wrong on our wedding day, I didn't know about it, and our wedding was so beautiful and detailed that it put anything on my pinterest boards to shame. Now that the wedding is over, I truly miss talking to Elexis nearly every day!
