About Wedding Planner, Liz Coopersmith
A few years ago Oscar De La Renta said that a wedding was “the most extraordinary day of a woman’s life.” In a couple’s life, really . Extraordinary: One day, where you’re surrounded by your friends and family, and so much love, so much fun, and so much joy. It sounds like a put on, but it really will be true. A day that will change your life forever. You get to decide what that day looks like, and most importantly, what it feels like.
I get to help you create it, and watch you enjoy it as it happens. It’s the best job in the world, trust me.
Ten years ago, I was a professional event planner. I loved pulling events together quickly and getting great results for my clients. Then I planned my own wedding in five months – I didn’t want to wait!
I was lucky. I had the experience and skills to create a wedding day I loved. LOVED. After watching so many of my friends struggle with their weddings, I really wanted to help. It’s supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. A big part of that that is always having the support and resources you need, all within reach.
And that’s how Silver Charm Events was born.
I’ve had fantastic opportunities to write and talk about wedding planning over the past 10 years, from a weekly advice column on The Broke Ass Bride, contributing to Huffington Post Weddings and Brides Magazine, online appearances on Huff Post Live, and writing articles for Wedding Wire, Bride Rush and Marriage.com. Plus my advice has been published in a few books, including a couple of my own. It feels great to help wherever I can. I’d love to see how I can help you.
Don’t settle for less than an extraordinary day.
Contact me to schedule a free consultation and tell me what that day looks like for you.

"My friends and family were able to enjoy the day without being saddled with tasks. Most importantly, my hubby and I had the most amazing day, without a care in the world. Whatever people threw at me, I just sent them to Liz. She shielded us from everything and we were thoroughly able to enjoy the day.
And not only did she take care of us the time leading up to the wedding, and on the wedding day itself, she also checked in with us after the wedding to make sure we were ok. Some minor issues came up and Liz was still working on stuff for us. She is so easy to work with, she has a great, friendly energy, she always put me at ease. Having her a part of our wedding was the best decision I made. People asked me how I was so calm on the day of. It was because I knew I had her running the show! We are so grateful to Liz."
Izzy + Ryan: Turnip Rose, Costa Mesa
"Thank God for Liz!!! We planned a wedding for 200 people in just 6 months! We hired Liz for her full services and this was money well-spent. Liz was helpful in every aspect of planning and organizing the biggest event of our lifetimes. Her patience and help made it possible for us to create exactly the exciting and unique wedding experience that we had imagined. She is an expert in all things wedding and just being able to ask her endless questions throughout the process was priceless. I love that she takes so much delight in the creative expressions of love through weddings. She is a gem!"
Amy + Nick: Rancho Del Cielo, Malibu
"Hiring Liz as our wedding coordinator was hands down the smartest wedding investment we made. We booked our wedding venue based on its beauty alone but we quickly realized that it came with no amenities – no water, no power, no bathrooms, no lighting, etc. It could have been a logistical nightmare but Liz did a fantastic job of managing all the vendors, insurance, deposits, and set-up & breakdown times
When I went to Liz with my crazy ideas she never said “no” but simply helped figure out the logistics to turn them into reality. On the big day, she and her assistants managed our timeline so that everything flowed seamlessly. The entire day was perfect – a wonderful day, surrounded by loved ones, good vibes and awesome food. I’m so glad we booked Liz!"
Rudy + Ryan: Heritage Square Museum
"My dream for my wedding was to have the day go off without any major disasters, which it did, so I got my dream wedding, thanks to Liz. She handled every detail of the planning and was available for all our meetings, tastings, fittings, etc. Our personalities meshed well with Liz, who is a fellow sci-fi and pop culture geek, and the whole process of planning was painless and even fun. If anything did go wrong on our special day, we were not aware of it. I felt like I could just relax and enjoy the celebration without having to worry about anything. We had all the things that were most important to us - good food, good music, a beautiful setting, plenty of booze and all of our loved ones there with us to share the moment. Liz helped to make it all happen. It was truly the best day of my life, and I'm so grateful that I will always have this perfect memory."
Karen + Roger: City Club, Downtown L.A.
"I couldn't have asked for a more organized, fun and capable wedding planner than Liz at Silver Charm Events! We live in the UK but decided to have our wedding back home in LA. Planning a wedding from abroad can definitely be overwhelming but Liz made the entire process fun and stress free. She was always there to answer any question I had at anytime of day or night. Even though I had only two weeks in town before the wedding itself, she made sure to be on hand for everything that needed to get done. If you're planning a wedding I definitely recommend hiring Liz and her team!"
Nicole + John: Heritage Square Museum
"Liz was our day-of coordinator, but she definitely went above and beyond to make sure all of the pieces came together before the big day. She was great at handling all of the little details behind the scenes to help make our wedding day a stress-free and fun experience. She works really hard to touch base with all of the various vendors and keep everything and everyone organized. Knowing she had it all under control allowed me to relax and enjoy!"
