Cupcake connoisseur, Gemini, part-time comedian (at least I think I’m funny), gif lover, wife to Sean and Mom to Evan and Maia.
I think I first fell in love with weddings in 1989 (I'm dating myself) while watching the iconic movie, Steel Magnolias — the dress, the beauty, the friendships and (of course) the colors blush and bashful. I've been hooked on weddings and red velvet cake ever since.
It took me some time to realize that my passion could also be my career. Before founding Lauren O & Co., I worked in the healthcare industry as a project manager. While I excelled at organizing all of the little details and managing the many different personalities involved in each project, the creative in me longed for something more.
Lauren O & Co. was created after I was given the opportunity to assist in planning a wedding and quickly realized I'd found my purpose. This past March we celebrated six years of curating weddings! I’m honored to have the trust of the many amazing couples that I've worked with.
I’m also fortunate to have an outstanding team. They are always up for a challenge and as most creative entrepreneurs know, we always have something new and exciting up our sleeves.
We are committed to showcasing love in all forms. As a minority and 1/2 of an interracial marriage, I can relate to underrepresentation. I want all of my couples to feel like their love is the most special, most precious and beautiful - because it is and it deserves to be celebrated.
I can't wait to meet you, welcome to the Co.!
My faith in God. It has gotten me through so much and doesn’t allow me to fear. It gives me courage, peace, and inspires me to keep on pushing.
My husband, Sean. His confidence and strength in all situations is enviable and it amazes me. We’ve been through a lot in the last few years, but he’s never wavered in who he is, his life goals, or how much he loves our family.
The sound of my kids laughing-like a big ole belly laugh. I could be having A DAY, but their laughs will take me out of it and I cherish that. I cherish their zest for life and the sound of their happiness. To be young and innocent-it is an amazing time.
I’d be planning an event for Adrienne Bosh! Girl, if you see this…call me. I’ve got ideas!
Reality TV! RHOA, Married to Medicine, The Braxton Family Values. I love them all!
