WE CARE ABOUT THE DETAILS AND HOW YOU AND YOUR GUESTS EXPERIENCE YOUR EVENT.
From all-inclusive planning and design to destination events, we will create an event blueprint tailored specifically to your event’s needs. We dedicate ourselves to curating memorable experiences and our greatest pleasure is knowing that you’ll enjoy the planning of your event just as much as we will.
Full Event Planning & Design
Where every detail is created with you in mind, our Full Event Planning and Design service is our most popular, and the most comprehensive, package we provide our clients. We are your partners throughout the entire planning of your event – thoughtfully establishing a solid groundwork by building your budget and timelines, curating an incredible vendor team, developing an event design to delight all of your senses, meanwhile managing all of the details – both big and small. On the day-of your event, we are one of the first to arrive, and one of the last to leave, ensuring a carefully orchestrated, cohesive and seamless event – exceeding even the wildest of expectations!
Partial Planning & Design
For those who appreciate peace of mind and guidance throughout, however, would prefer to plan their event, we’d love to be your partner! Working together, we will provide reputable vendor recommendations, a full event design exploratory, and customized planning tools created to help keep you organized and focused during the planning of your event. Throughout our time with you, we will schedule a number of check-ins to make sure everything is on track, provide direction, and answer any questions you may have. A couple of months prior to your event, we jump in to make sure that all of the final details and logistics are in place. On the day-of your event, we will be on-site to manage all of the little details to ensure that your celebration is exactly as you have envisioned.
Destination Event Planning & Design
The experience of hosting a destination event is like no other! Daytime events turning into evening extravaganzas, you are truly transported to another place in time. To plan and produce an event abroad (typically taking place over a number of days), takes special skill, patience, and understanding of the locale’s characteristics. We are your go-to, full-service event production team, selecting the perfect vendor team, engineering all of the logistics, while designing a cohesive tone, feel and design throughout.
We pride ourselves in planning and designing highly customized experiences for all of our clients. Instead of a one-size fits all approach, we would love to learn more about you and your event.
Not only is she kind, sweet, and relaxed (in a great way!), but she’s really knowledgeable about wedding planning and event design in general. Lindsay made it a priority to get to know Mike and I as a couple as to better put our ideas, our style, and our interests into our wedding.
Within the first couple weeks of meeting her, she created 3 visions of our wedding that she felt suited us, which was amazing to see put together. From there, she gave amazing recommendations for vendors, discussed options very clearly with us, gave great visuals, and was ALWAYS available to communicate via email and phone as well. Both my husband and I work full time and we never had to worry about things getting done with Lindsay as our planner. She is driven, efficient, honest, and super creative. … We were able to fully enjoy the most important day of our lives thanks to Lindsay AND her amazing team!

As we got closer to our wedding date, our friends and family always asked, “Are you stressed? Are you nervous?” The answer was always a resounding “no!” and that was all because of Lindsay.
My now-husband and I knew from our very first meeting that we were in great hands. She got to know us and then tailored to reflect us as a couple. Nothing was cookie cutter. We got married on Vieques, Puerto Rico, a tiny island off the coast of Puerto Rico, meaning logistics for an 80+ person wedding were going to be challenging. She made it look like a breeze, seamlessly working (and befriending, no less) all our vendors. We highly recommend Simply Sunshine to all of our friends who are even thinking about getting married for weddings in Vieques, New York, and across the globe.

Lindsay and the Simply Sunshine Events team is and was an absolute delight to work with! We had lofty dreams of incorporating a hot air balloon during our reception, and with the help of Lindsay she made our vision come to life in a tasteful, black tie fashion.
Of course, Lindsay also recommended the absolute best creative team from a cinematographer, calligrapher, DJ, beauty team, and photographer who all made our day so special! We loved Lindsay’s thoughtful approach to design and event coordination–not only is she ready with a plan “A”, “B”, and “C”, but she also conceptualized a wedding design scheme specifically tailored to us as a couple. Lindsay made herself available to respond to our questions (from the most mundane to the most tedious that we had not even anticipated!) and went above and beyond her call of duty! Thank you so much Lindsay for making our loved ones and ourselves make the most wonderful memories. We could not have done this without you!

Let me preface this review by saying if you are thinking about getting a wedding planner in the NJ/NY area, definitely reach out to Lindsay! She is absolutely amazing and will help craft an event that is better than you could have imagined.
After reading some reviews online, I reached out to a few planners and set up a couple of introductory calls to hear about their services and experiences. When I started talking to different wedding planners, every one of them started off by telling me about all of their packages and what was included in their service. Lindsay was different. Unlike the other planners who immediately went into their sales pitch, Lindsay wanted to hear our story and what we wanted in our wedding. It seemed like she genuinely wanted to help us create our special day, not just give us a cookie cutter list of services. This was such a refreshing and personal way of approaching wedding planning. I knew from that minute that I wanted her to plan my wedding.

Perfect, beautiful, flawless. You did not miss a beat… you were fantastic. Your organization, attention to detail, and professionalism was top notch.
The wedding day & night went so well… all of my friends couldn’t stop raving how classy and elegant everything was. It was one of the best nights and all done with such elegance… it was the perfect affair. Lindsay, you are so good at this – what a talent you have to be able to bring a vision to an actual live event. God has blessed you to be able to bring happiness to so many people. Thank you with all of our hearts.

Simply Sunshine Events made the most important day of our lives absolutely beautiful!
We had no idea how much effort went into planning a garden wedding for 180 guests, but Lindsay guided us through the planning process by taking the time to get to know us as a couple, presenting creative planning and design ideas, providing us with organized timelines and budgets, and connecting us with amazing vendors. Most importantly, Lindsay became a good friend to talk to. She helped us create a wedding that truly captured who we are as a couple. Out day was fun, romantic, thoughtful, unique and something we will cherish forever.
— ALAINA + BRENT
Lindsay was fantastic – extremely organized, professional, and flexible with appointment times leading up to our wedding day.
For a busy bride and groom-to-be that both had erratic work/travel schedules, she was very understanding and often scheduled Skype sessions with us at 9pm at night, which we very much appreciated. On the day of our wedding, everything went beautifully (even with the hurricane warning…) and we felt relaxed and enjoyed the day without worry knowing that Lindsay was handling everything.
— GRAYCE + MATT
Words cannot describe how wonderful and amazing Lindsay is. Wedding planning was a breeze with Simply Sunshine Events by my side.
Lindsay was able to answer every question and inquiry that I had. There were so many little things details that I never even knew about that she took care of. She helped guide us through all the tough choices, like DJ, photography, videographer, flowers, and everything in between. She was able to interpret our vision for the wedding to the T. The wedding day was beyond beautiful. We were able to celebrate with no worries. Lindsay plays the role of both wedding planner and superhero. When you’re in need of help, she magically appears and takes care of business. THANK YOU
— KATHY + JOE
LOVE! I loved everything about my event and working with Lindsay. She made my dream wedding come true.
I was super busy and Lindsay accommodated my crazy work schedule. She is beyond just an event planner and designer, she truly cares about her clients and makes them feel at ease. I must say because of Lindsay I was a relaxed bride. I loved all of her vendors and they made every little sketched out idea come to life. I would not have had such an amazing wedding without Lindsay and Simply Sunshine Events.

Lindsay of Simply Sunshine Events is a lifesaver!
We lost our venue three months before the wedding and Lindsay helped us plan a whole new wedding in record time-one that was even better than what we originally planned. If you want to wake up on your wedding day and only worry about how you’re going to pee with spanx on, then Simply Sunshine Events is the wedding planner for you! Our wedding day was just absolutely perfect.
— DEDE + NICK
Thank you SO so much for all of your help to make [our wedding] spectacular – it really was perfect and it would not have been possible without you… thank you again for all of your hard work and for helping us to have such an amazing and unforgettable day.
— JACKIE + MARCUS
Strongly recommend Lindsay for all of your wedding planning needs! She is amazingly organized and talented and committed to making sure you have the wedding of your dreams.
Our wedding was complicated. Two ceremonies + reception in the same day all in different rooms, with different decor, music, languages, attire, etc. It was like planning three mini weddings!! But Lindsay did it all in stride. She helped me imagine the end vision for our wedding and then we worked backwards to figure out the step by step process to get there. … I also appreciated all of Lindsay’s recommendations on vendors–she is well connected and put us in touch with some amazing people–especially our florists, photographer and videographer. … Ultimately we were very happy with our decision and can’t say enough great things!!! Hire her today!!

Planning a wedding doesn’t have to be stressful – Lindsay at Simply Sunshine Events helped make my weekend of wedding activities as enjoyable for my husband and I as it was for our guests.
We recently got married on Vieques Island, which is off the beaten path and doesn’t have the resources that you would find elsewhere in the United States. With that said, Lindsay and her team put in a lot of time to research not only the vendors, but every small detail about the island so our wedding went off without a hitch. Lindsay also helped us create one of the most beautiful weddings the island has ever seen. I’m serious, we had locals coming up to us later in the week telling us they had seen pictures and were impressed by all the detail. Simply Sunshine did a great job with our wedding and I would absolutely use her again.

Simply Sunshine was the most amazing event planning team for my non-profit, Angelight Films Fundraiser.
From the initial plan to the budget, to her immaculate lists, coordination of details with vendors, reviewing of contracts, creative ‘larger than life’ artistic masterpieces and her day-of management. Lindsay is a caring, hard-working powerhouse who went above and beyond in every way possible. Thank you, Lindsay, for your amazing work and putting your heart and soul into my event. I wouldn’t want to have another event without you!
— STEPHANIE A.
Thank you so much for all of your help with coordinating our wedding. We cannot thank you enough for all the work that you did to make our day so special and we could not have done it without you.
We know there are so many things that you did behind the scenes that we don’t even know about. You were truly a pleasure to work with and that is definitely an understatement. Your professionalism, energy and calm attitude made the planning process so much more enjoyable and put us at ease. We will definitely recommend you to any friends we know getting married.
