I cannot say enough good things about Lauren O & Co! Her attention to detail and unflappability were unmatched! If you are looking for a planner that will allow you to enjoy your engagement and wedding stress free, book her NOW! My husband and I cannot thank her and her team enough for ensuring that our day was absolutely perfect.

Lauren is extremely organized, prompt, and so easy to work with. Every time you meet with her she makes you feel at ease. Our wedding wouldn't have been a success without her and her team! We had a pretty large wedding with hectic families, and we got so many compliments from our guests on how smoothly the whole wedding went which was all thanks to Lauren's attention to detail.

I hired Lauren O Events for full planning and would do it again in a second. Lauren is one of the most organized people I have ever met. Her memory/note taking is insane: something would come up like seating cards, and she would say, ‘A few months ago you pinned some examples with succulents, do you still like that?’ I never anticipated working with a team that was so dedicated to our wedding in every way.

I cannot imagine going through the process without Lauren. Lauren made every moment of the planning process feel special and exciting. It honestly felt like I was planning all of these details with my closest group of friends. They could not have been more supportive or excited about our wedding. 

“I cannot imagine going through the process without Lauren.”

Here, it’s all possible.
