My favorite part of planning is the actual day! I love seeing all the pieces come together and all the planning come to life. I truly have a passion for designing and creating unforgettable experiences for my clients from the beginning to the end!

I have been in the hospitality industry planning fabulous weddings and events for over 15 years including 10 years in Downtown Chicago. My husband and I moved to sunny Florida from Columbus, Ohio 5 years ago.

I have been fortunate to be able to coordinate events in Florida at beautiful venues such as The Ritz Carlton Beach Club, Selby Gardens, Powel Crosley, The Mote Aquarium, The Westin, as well as many other hotels and venues in the Sarasota/Tampa Bay area.

I will be by your side throughout your wedding or social event till the end, making sure that everything ​is going perfectly. I am creative and organized and will make sure every last detail is taken care of, so the only thing you have to worry about is enjoying yourself and making memories!

Nothing is more important to me than making your day exactly what you want it to be. I would love to work with you to make your special wedding or event the perfect memory!


Samantha is the wedding and event coordinator at Laura Detwiler Events. She is a New Yorker by heart, but has been in Florida for awhile now. She is a super fashionista, which makes her a fantastic asset for LDE as she is super creative at putting colors and designs together.


She is a great team player and her favorite part of any wedding or event is definitely the client's reaction when they get a first look at the finished space!
