Efficient, empowering wedding planning


Award-Winning Raleigh, NC Wedding Planner

Modern Couple

For the

When it comes to planning your wedding, you’d rather bask in the glory of the fun stuff than get bogged down in nitty-gritty details. The idea of letting the planning process overshadow the excitement of your engagement or interfere with that life you love? Boy, bye.

You know you need a Raleigh, NC wedding planner who will keep things real and relatable—someone you can trust to execute your vision with expertise, someone who lives up to your expectations, someone who will set clear goals and deadlines...and someone who will finally remember your mother-in-law hates purple (it’s all in the details, girl).

The good news? You just found her.

You have a life to live and a legacy to build. You need a wedding planner who gets that and grinds hard so you don’t have to.

This slice in time is finite—and I believe my greatest responsibility as your Raleigh wedding planner is to protect it for you. I’m here to use my organizational acumen and industry expertise as the shield that saves your sanity (go live, boo—I’ve got this).

I’ll problem solve on your behalf, work meticulously to bring your vision to life while you sip champagne in the background, and create an event experience that honors your love story, puts Pinterest to shame, and leaves your guests raving for years to come.

Here to pull off the wedding of your wildest dreams...and always game to taste the cake.

I'm Lauren O

For you, the most important part of your wedding is the experience it offers your guests—from the food they're served and the glasses they raise to the music that pulls them toward the dance floor. You want an expert to help you invest your budget in high-quality elements that make a massive impact on guest-experience. You don’t want flashy for flashy’s sake—you want pure revelry with your favorite people.

Our services are rooted in making sure your event delivers exactly that.

Whether you need us to oversee every last line-item from start to finish (our speciality)—or simply step in and manage logistics as the day-of approaches—we’re here to ensure your celebration is as radiant and lasting as that love of yours.

You want a party that’s all about your people
...and we’re here for it.

If you are looking for a wedding planner who is going to go beyond what is expected of them, STOP RIGHT HERE! Lauren and her team are one of kind. I worked with Lauren and her team for 2 years. In those two years, Lauren and her staff were nothing short of amazing. They made sure all my visions and dreams came true. I had some personal issues come up during this wedding process and Lauren was there to take over and help everything come together smoothly. On a scale 1-10, I give Lauren and her team: A thousand! — Tricia & Manny

"You were a godsend from the very beginning of planning: answering all my crazy e-mails, re-assuring me when I was stressed, and handling every single little detail. But nothing can compare to how much the Lauren O Team rocked it last night. It could not have been any more perfect. I am so impressed by your crisis management, attention to detail, positive attitude, and just general awesomeness. Your team is also absolutely incredible. I know I didn’t have to worry at all the whole night." — Emily & John
