What I Do
by L & K is a event planning service with main focus on
weddings/receptions. I strive in specializing “stress free” weddings.
Depending on your individual needs, I offer several Wedding packages
along with other services. I offer a free one hour consultation.
My goal for everyone involved is, to sit back and allow you to relax and
enjoy the fun times, and let me handle the details.
My mission is to “listen” to my client needs, and provide the “best”
customer service possible.
We LaNetra Halcromb Stovall and Kathy Carlis (sisters) started our
business in August of 2002. Our experience goes back to 1996. We
assisted close friends and family members with the planning and coordinating of
their weddings. We felt that would be a good place to start since they are
usually your best critics.
We started attending as many weddings as we could to see how much organization
was involved. There were several things that stood out when we were observing
weddings. The majority of them didn’t start on time, receptions were
not organized and guests and the wedding party looked lost, not sure what
to do next. We know the cost to plan a wedding and reception and “Brides deserve the best; for their “special day.”
After observing some of the things that could have been avoided with the help
of a Wedding Planner/Coordinator, we decided it was our time to get started in
the wedding industry.
To enhance our experience in coordinating & planning, we studied
several books on Wedding Etiquette, read up on Wedding Consultants, investigated the Wichita market on the local wedding industry, attended
Bridal Shows to see what "brides" were looking for in our area, and
came up with a business plan and proceeded from there.
We now have a solid vendor portfolio with an excellent referral list and have
participated in Bridal Shows.
What makes us
Combine we have over 50 years of customer service. Our goal is to keep our
prices affordable so anyone seeking a wedding planner can have the luxury of
hiring our services.
Currently, I (LaNetra) am the sole event planner. My sister Kathy has
retired but I know where to find her if needed! I have two awesome team members that assist me on the day of.
