Start Your Life Together in the Best Way Possible

Event planning & Design

 ... the invitations get lost?

what if ...

 ... we forget to do something?

 ... our decor selections look awful?

 ... the band doesn't show?

 ... nobody dances?

 ... it rains?

It's Your Time to Shine

You've found "the one". Now, it's your turn to be the special people, to have a little attention, and to celebrate with your nearest and dearest at engagement parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties and more.

But just as you start dreaming of all the fun that is yet to come, the bubble bursts and reality sets in.

What was supposed to be your time to shine is suddenly covered by an enormous cloud of worries and what-ifs.

You need help putting periods where you currently have question marks. But that leads to yet another what if:

 “What if we can't find anyone we can trust to help make it all happen?"

You've found a trusted team.


It's perfectly normal to worry about making a mistake or to feel a little overwhelmed by all there is to do at this stage of wedding planning. After all, you've most likely never done this before.

But we have. And we'd love to be a trusted source as you navigate the upcoming months of decisions and to do's.

At Havard Events & Design, we've been planning and designing weddings for over 6 years. During that time, we've not only learned what tasks to check off the list (and in what order), but we've discovered the right team of people to make it all happen.

And we truly want to make it all happen for you. 

I Want a Trusted Team

“Lisa was detailed, thorough, responsive, and so compassionate and personal - she got to know me, my fiancé, our style, and our priorities, and help filter the overwhelming stuff, organize the many many moving parts, talk through the options, and always steered us in the right, trustworthy direction.”

— Uzma, Bride

We’ll begin with a call so we can find out what's most important to you: what you value, how you want your day to look, and how you want to feel throughout the entire experience. Ultimately, we’ll use this call to discover what you really need.

Step 01


Then, we'll create a proposal with planning and design options tailored to your specific wants and needs. Nothing cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all. Instead, we’ll include the options and offerings that make this experience all yours.

Step o2

Custom Proposal

We’ll jump back on a call to discuss the options, finalize a game plan, and determine a final scope of work to get you down the aisle with relative ease. That’s it! Once you make a selection, sign the contract and pay the deposit, we’re off to the races. Let the fun begin!

Step 03

Finalize Booking

A Fully Guided Experience

our process

At Havard Events & Design, we see it as an honor to collaborate on the planning and design of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Instead of offering preset planning and design collections, we'll guide you to discover just what you need.


With us on your team, you won't have to doubt or wonder what to do next. Instead, all along the way, we'll be by your side with a smile and a word of encouragement. 


Whether you're designing an over-the-top reception or planning a super meaningful ceremony, we'll use ALL of our skills to make your entire experience a success.

I Want a Guided Experience

“Lisa pays attention to every detail and makes sure you have the wedding of your dreams. She was on top of all our deadlines and provided gentle reminders throughout the whole planning process. She had great suggestions when we were uncertain about what we wanted and always helped us make wise choices! Lisa and her team were great from start to finish.”

— Barbara, Bride
