DESIGN & STYLING FOR
WEDDINGS & EVENTS
Local & Destination Celebrations
Where you may see an empty space, we enjoy the infinite potential of a blank canvas. We create event designs with spirited charm, modern sensibilities and distinctive character. We dare to explore the unexpected, where your story lives within every detail.
You’re overwhelmed with the options and under prepared for the amount of work and logistics that surround designing a cohesive event design. Weeding through what feels like a large menu of options stops you in your tracks, and you wonder how you’re going to get it all done, while still enjoying your celebration.
You see, the anatomy of every event is different. Over the years, we have developed a comprehensive system that allows for full customization and personalization, while keeping the event design process moving forward.
When we begin working together, we approach all aspects of your design process with enthusiasm, passion, integrity and meticulous care. We take the time to truly get to know you, understand what excites you, what gets you up in the morning and where your dreams take you. Each of these day-to-day elements are what help inform the very details that make up your event design. And we want to know them all.
Our naturally inspired event designs reflect a collaborative spirit, where we choreograph every detail, from floral design, rentals, linen, lighting, layout and stationery, so you can trust with confidence that every ingredient transitions seamlessly on the day of your event.
With an established reputation of excellence for creating meaningful events and purposeful designs, we are on the constant pursuit for unquestioned quality and approachability. Working with us, we’re always on your team, and you can rest assured you will always be in good hands.
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.

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

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!

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.
