Look at what our Brides and Grooms are saying ...


"Lori and her team make your wedding day absolutely unforgettable! Every process and “to-do” is made so easy. Every day leading up to the big day, and the wedding day itself is stress free and nothing but enjoyable! On top of taking away the stress from the event so you can focus just on having fun, making memories and soaking in each moment, her decorating and ideas are phenomenal! Everything turns out beautiful, just the way you imagine. She truly helped make our wedding day a dream come true!"

"The best decision we ever made was hiring I Do, By Lori for our daughter’s wedding. She took care of the details which allowed me to be completely present and soak up every minute of the wedding. The decorating was gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. The wedding went off without a hitch (and if there were any, we didn’t know about them!). Lori and her staff are worth every penny and couldn’t be kinder or more fun to work with. Thank you Lori, from the bottom of my heart�"

Lori Velde, Owner and Principal Planner/Designer

"I do" is a special occasion and event planning company. 


My job  as your event planner is to handle the design and coordination process.  Weddings are my specialty but I am passionate about arranging any event that is special in your life. Events like rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, anniversaries, reunions, graduations just to name a few.  I promise you no matter what the occasion, I will be there with you, through the details, decisions and emotions of the planning process. Please check out our services page to see all the options available for "I do's" involvement.


My mission is to bring your vision to life.  I am very aware your life is already full of stressful times, with my help, be assured your wedding or special event won't be one of them. I bring a passion and creative flair along with detailed organization to every event I do.


Your Vision will become a beautiful Memory.
