One of Liven It Up Events’ former brides says it best: “The outstanding quality of this company is their ability to listen, understand, and identify exactly what is important and meaningful to the client, and translate that into reality.” Founded by Anthony Navarro, the Liven It Up team specializes in tremendous customer care—yet they’re probably best known for their fun personalities and being a blast to work with.

Wedding and special event planning services include:

  • Full Service Planning
  • Partial Planning

All wedding planning packages include a detailed timeline. Liven It Up Events creates customized packages for each couple they work with.


“Everyone who is thinking of planning a wedding should run, not walk, directly to Liven It Up, and especially to Anthony Navarro.”

“I had a vision in mind and Anthony helped ask the right questions and gave me advice on how to get there. I LOVED what he did…it turned out EXACTLY like what I had in mind.”

“Anthony is amazing. I always felt like I was his #1 most important client throughout the entire process. We even made plans to grab drinks weeks after the wedding.”

“Everything at our wedding went *perfectly*, and I mean perfectly.”

“He was key to my complete lack of stress leading up to and during our wedding—the best money we spent!”

“After our meeting at a local coffee shop, my fiancé and I walked home and immediately booked Anthony. Seeing his 8 page (!) day-of schedule sold me on his services and convinced me of his attention to detail.”

“He was always easy to talk to, always prompt at responding to questions and issues, and his budget projections were totally accurate.”

Anthony’s advice was spot-on and he inserted himself appropriately when we were making decisions if he had other ideas for us to consider.”

“There were some things I had in mind that I was not able to articulate very well and Anthony was able to talk me through the process and ask the right questions so he could hone in on not only the nuances but the overall feel and tone of the event.”

“He was seriously amazing. I would recommend this company to my best friend. I would recommend them to President Obama and Oprah and any other person with high expectations!”

“Don’t second-guess this choice. Hire them. Best choice we made for our wedding. We were able to relax and have fun, and make amazing memories.”

“Quote from my husband: ‘I want to hire them to coordinate…my life...’”

Questions and Answers

What 3 words best describe your work?
Professional. Unique. Personalized.
Tell us about your company name.
When I started Liven It Up, I wanted to have a company that left pretension behind, and made the couples I would work with know that I would not only produce great events, but also create a memorable and enjoyable experience in doing so!
Why should someone hire you?
I am a listener. Listening is what has created success for me in both professional and personal life. I listen to my clients and give them what they want. If there are any red flags that I can see, I will let them know, but ultimately, I am the planner who will give a couple the wedding they wish to have!
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?
My grandmother and grandmother were in the wedding business. They owned a jewelry store that specialized in wedding rings as well as a bridal boutique. From there, they transitioned and opened various hospitality facilities where they were able to host weddings. I remember as a kid, sitting with my grandma and her clients, flipping through invitation books and then helping them pick their food menus. You can say that I was born and bred into this industry!
What have weddings taught you?
Three things. You need to have patience, work as a team, and know that in the end, it will all be okay!
