Hello! My name is Lisa Norris and I am a wedding planner based out of Indianapolis. I am my couples’ biggest cheerleader while providing guidance, a listening ear and a calm, positive attitude. I pour my heart into every wedding I plan & coordinate as if it’s my own!
I always knew I wanted to work in the hospitality & events industry. In high school, I worked at a wedding venue, and I knew that’s where my heart was! I graduated from Purdue University where I received my Bachelor’s & Master’s degrees in Hospitality Management and also obtained my Certified Wedding Planner certification through The Bridal Society. It’s been over 20 years since I first began, but my path has taken me through many wonderful opportunities in the event planning world.
Building relationships with couples & their families and seeing their joy on their wedding day is such a reward. My goal is to allow them to focus on love, not logistics.
My career has blossomed through many wonderful opportunities including catering, event planning and venue management. As a General Manager of a venue, loved working with our couples. Wedding days were always my favorite and I LOVED going to work. In 2016, I decided to start my own wedding planning business, Lisa Norris Events – and never looked back! Building relationships with couples & their families and seeing their joy on their wedding day is such a reward. My goal is to allow them to focus on love, not logistics.
All couples have worries in the back of their mind. My job is to reassure them that I’ll be with them throughout the process, and most importantly, on their wedding day.

Whether it’s a rain plan, planning a rehearsal or keeping their Uncle Bob from drinking too much, I am there to help make sure their day goes smoothly!
Of course, all wedding planners are different, just like all people. Finding the one you feel the most comfortable with is key to a great relationship. You want to be able to freely express your wishes and concerns throughout the planning. If you are trying to decide between two options, ask yourself “who would I feel most comfortable picking up the phone and talking too?” It’s also good to scout out their portfolio through social media and online sites such as The Knot, Wedding Wire, & Google to read about past clients’ experiences and see photos of their work.
Couples can be overwhelmed by various services that are offered.
There are three key services offered in the wedding industry, planning, designing & day-of coordination. Depending on your region, full planners can range upwards of $3,000 - $6,000. However, partial planning & day-of coordination can usually range from $1,000 - $2,000.
Hiring a planner doesn’t have to be an expensive decision. With an array of services offered, you can align your needs with the best planner for you. Perhaps you have a grip on your smaller scale wedding, but need someone to step in during the last three months to finalize your details and coordinate on the day of your wedding. By working with a planner or day of coordinator, you can be calm & relaxed on your wedding day which is priceless!
Hiring a planner/coordinator is the best gift you can give yourself and your family. The peace of mind leading up to your wedding and on your wedding day is worth your sanity.

Staying in the budget is always a couple's goal without sacrificing their wishes for their special day. Here are a few tips:
Last year I worked with a couple who planned to get married back at their alma mater of DePauw University. They came from a long line of Depauw alum and the University meant a lot not only to both of their families but also to their relationship. From our first meeting on campus, I was smitten with the University. It was gorgeous! As we walked the campus discussing plans, they pointed out campus landmarks and told stories of their rivalry with another local college. Learning about the history of the campus, but also the historic MeHerry Hall which housed their ceremony, made the wedding so memorable! The couple invited all their college friends back to their alma mater to celebrate - with a few extra surprise appearances. Their favorite bartender from the college watering hole, The Fluttering Duck, was their celebrity bartender for the evening and a late night snack of the campus’ famous garlic cheeseburgers from Marvin’s was catered in! It was definitely a wedding for the books!
