"Rebecca & her team were amazing. They took care of every little detail & made sure that they put 110% into making all our dreams become a reality.

Brenda H. at Anchorage Chamber of Commerce

"Had a Huge Event for my Brewery and was not sure how I was going to run logistics the Day of...that's when Rebecca and La Boum Events took over. I didn't have to do anything! I was able to meet/greet guests and relax while she took care any needs from the Band, the volunteers, and the guests. She handled little things like alphabetizing swag bags to daunting tasks like organizing the entire flow for the checking in process & parking!" -Zach L. Bleeding Heart Brewery, Investor Appreciation Party

"Rebecca was amazing to work with. She understood my vision and made amazing recommendations that all turned out beautiful. I had no stress the day of my wedding and everything went smoothly.

"The balloons were a real hit- along with everything else! Thank you so much for all of your hard work on our event. Everyone loved the theme and had fun!" --- Reagan T., Holiday Party

"Rebecca and her team did a fantastic job for my wedding. Rebecca had so many great ideas to help me create the wedding I had in mind. And because she has done so many weddings, she can give me valuable suggestions on the Dos and Do nots. On the wedding day she made sure the only thing I needed was enjoying my day. Her work is really worth every penny!" -- Jin & Irwin

Thank you, La Boum, for such a great sixtieth birthday. The venue, theme, food and decorations were perfect! You are my favorite Alaska event planner." --- Deborah B.​

"Rebecca is fantastic. We had the wedding of our dreams this past summer at the Tern Lake Inn in Alaska and hands down this would not have occurred without her. When choosing a planner I was looking for someone who listened to what I was envisioning, could provide creative input to enhance that vision, and was professional & organized, hard working, and connected to area vendors. Rebecca did not disappoint on these dimensions. You'll save time and stress by going with Rebecca." --- Cortina

"My wife hired La Boum for my retirement party after they planned our daughter's wedding a few years ago. I was very happy with their service then and very happy with their service now. For the retirement party La Boum brought a Mexican fiesta theme with a taco bar, a cigar bar and a photo booth, with Mexican themed props. It was a nice way to mark a milestone event in my life. They are the best local planning company. Highly recommend them." Tom B.

"Thanks again for everything! Girdwood is a beautiful place as well as the rest of Alaska. I can't get over how nice everyone is. It was such a pleasant trip. Thanks to our coordinator Laura and to Amber from the hair and make up. Definitely a great person to work with she did a great job and is so nice. I am definitely happy." --- Chloe R.

"I recommend Rebecca, owner of La Boum Events, if you ever want a finely run special occasion. La Boum recently hosted my house-warming party, and it turned out to be a really fun and laid-back event for me. They used wonderful décor that fit my style, and suggested a s'mores bar (complete with delicatessen s'mores), which was a success. With La Boum hosting the party and taking care of the details, I was free to socialize and enjoy myself. Thanks Rebecca!" --- Tamara B.

"My wedding was put together extremely quickly and sight unseen for the entire ceremony and reception; I was so impressed with how beautiful and timeless the style in which Rebecca put my wedding together with was. It was a wedding fit to be on the cover of Martha Stewart!!!" --- Jessica E

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura. She did a great job and I appreciate the detail and vision that went into the party. Our employees really enjoyed all aspects and were talking about it the next week." --- Leigha D., Holiday Party

"Rebecca was very friendly and down to earth but still glam, which is what a bride needs when she's trying to plan a complicated wedding! La Boum had a wonderful variety of wedding planning services; we went with a more basic as it was cheaper. Rebecca did an excellent job of corralling everyone for the rehearsal dinner, and setting up a timeline of events (which really helped since everything felt a little overwhelming), and going beyond what was expected, and we appreciated that." --- Jordan S

"La Boum Events knows how to throw an epic party that you'll remember forever! They pay attention to detail which is so important when planning a wedding or corporate event. You've got one day to get it right and they do that and more! Not only are they great at decor, but their communication with vendors and clients is impeccable. Every time I'm at an event they are a part of I am in awe." Liz M., Celestial Sweets Boutique

"Laura Wilson at La Boum Events is AMAZING. I am a very detailed oriented person and Laura was just the person I needed. Right from our first consultation, I knew we would work well together. Our wedding day was perfect because Laura handled all the vendors very well. She is a great listener and professional. I highly highly recommend Laura. She was an enormous help especially the day after the wedding." --- Charlene N.

"Thank YOU! All your hard work is what made it successful! I hope we can do it again next year." --- APS, Spring Corporate Party

"I would highly recommend that one gets this service! I got the Week before Coordinator. It was so stress reliving to have a professional there to help pick up last minuet items, help plan the actual wedding. Coordinate where people were suppose to be and when. Help the groomsmen but on the boutineers. Laura kept track of everything, and even helped decorate the reception area, with all of the bridesmaids and friends. She helped me, keep sanity on this stressful, happy event." --- Dawna R.

Laura was professional, organized, calm and able to answer my hundreds of questions. We had zero problems on the big day. I only wish we had booked La Boum earlier in the process to include all the wedding planning. Don't do everything yourself!" --- Stacy S.

"Laura from La Boum was fantastic to work with. We planned our wedding from California and her knowledge of our venue (Alyeska Resort) and with the best vendors in the area made it much easier to plan and brought us a ton of relief. My husband and I were pretty particular about each of the ceremony details and the decoration details as well, Laura nailed every single one. Not to mention we had to ship a few boxes from California and Laura graciously received them at her home." --- Kelly W.

From the beginning I had my wedding planning done halfway, feeling overwhelmed I called Rebecca to sit down to talk, 2.5 months before the big day. From the start of where she begin planning for me and from the last day, she was on top of everything from talking to the band, and the officiate, and also getting my ideas down to the last perfection. I had a big beautiful wedding and loved filled day, every second was just the way I wanted it to be and even more!
