After many years of working in corporate America as a Project Manager, I longed for a way to marry the logistical side of my brain with my creative side. Out of that desire, I discovered my love of wedding planning and Lauren O was born. 

Lauren began in 2013 after a chance to assist a wedding planner and the rest is history...

Through a love of the wedding industry and allowing each couple to experience their day wholeheartedly, Lauren O & Co. provides planning services that focus on not only having a party to dance the night away but a wedding that is worth remembering.

Lauren O & Co. has had the privilege of working with many couples to make their special day extraordinary.

the original

meet the Owner

Although my Gemini mind makes it hard to stay focused on one thought for too long, my inspiration comes from many sources. I can dream up the big picture and see all the moving parts needed to make it happen. I live in Connecticut with my husband, our two awesome children Evan & Maia, and my beautiful niece A’Starie.

Organizer, Gemini, and the perfect mix of fun and sophistication

HeyYY! I’m Lauren

My kids!
Every time I look at them, I thank God for trusting me with such awesome little ones and that I get to be their mom.

If I weren't a planner

What lights me up

I’d probably be in the entertainment or music industry. You’d find me at Bad Boy Records working with celebs, a childhood dream come true! Along as I could be creative and around other people, I’d be happy.

My husband
I’m pretty much obsessed with this guy. He knows me better than anyone and his strength and level-headed nature compliment me to a tee.

Cookies
Chocolate chip to be exact. And they better be soft and gooey! It’s amazing.

Leopard print
Sexy, edgy, and classic. I feel so fierce and confident when I wear it and love it on anything and everything.

Coffee - My grandpa would sneak me some each morning before school so we could watch the news together. I cherished this time with the most special person in my life.

Reality Tv
I love when I can relate to what I’m watching. I may not have a mansion or publicity drama but I can laugh, cry, and connect with the stories on screen.

Dancing
I’m not the best dancer but I find such joy in dancing, that is what matters. When you love something, do it. Just keep swimming!

the team

meet the co

I've been a freelance writer, with many other hats, for the past ten years. When I met Lauren, we had that instant Gemini connection. We knew as a team we could create something big. When I'm not jotting down words, I'm walking my adorable little dog children or finding a new adventure with my other half, Carlos.

Creative writer, yet another gemini, and a firm believer in destiny

HEY! I’m MICHELLE

A paralegal! Or anything involved with animal rescue, I’d love to be able to help animals and keep them safe. 

My dogs
Brandy and Gigi, the package deal. They make everything worth it, that’s for sure. I don’t know what I’d do without my little muppets.

My fiance
Don’t tell him he’s behind the dogs! Knowing I have support while pursuing my dreams this past year & that I come home to him gets me through each day.

Music
I have some throwback playlists that hit me right in the emotions. The nostalgia helps me to create and having music playing keeps me inspired.

Makeup
I love shopping, especially for makeup (aka a slight obsession). I do work for weddings, parties, and costumes so my collection is all over the place.

Binge watching Netflix or Hulu is the best. You can find me curled up on the couch with my fiance and a seltzer watching a new show.

Antiquing with my Parents
We love spending a Saturday afternoon browsing vintage shops. I get so inspired seeing these opulent pieces and how they’ve changed over time.
