Our Approach

Event Management (commonly referred to as day of coordination) is ideal for the couple who has planned out the details on their own but wants our team of experts to handle the final vendor communication, timeline creation and wedding weekend execution.

We step in and manage logistics as the day-of approaches allowing you to do what is important - enjoy your wedding day with friends and loved ones.

We take on a limited number of event management clients based on availability, venue and peak season. 

Planning & Coordination

Full Service Planning Design & Coordination is for the couple that has discerning taste and high expectations—but zero desire to let wedding planning take over your life.

Event Management


Planning & Coordination is for the couple that has most of the details worked out but still desires the guidance of a professional wedding planner.

We first meet to go over the details and analyze the budget and then we draft a detailed timeline and highlight important planning milestones.

This package is highly customizable as we build in 10 hours of planning time for you to use at your discretion. From additional support with design to vendor meetings and communication, the hours are yours to use as needed.

Planning & Coordination is ideal for couples seeking a customizable planning experience.


Meet me at the altar in your white dress! It's wedding time. We've crossed all the t's dotted all the i's and now we're ready to shine. Flawless execution is our thing!

The Lauren O team will guide you through each moment of the day. We'll manage the vendors, you worry about nailing that first dance routine!

The big day!

Planning begins!


Now that we've booked your vendors, it's time to focus on all the details. Because they matter and we're checking for all of them.

We understand: you have discerning taste and high expectations—but zero desire to let wedding planning take over your life. Our planning process is transparent, easily accessible, organized and stress-free - the way planning should be. 


Once all the paperwork is out of the way we'll schedule our kick-off meeting. 

The kick-off meeting is our time to go over the details. We'll discuss the budget, walk you through your custom planning site and go over our phased-based planning process.  Priorities are set and you can get back to living your life.

On the Calendar

Let's be friends!


It's official; you're engaged! Time to update your status on social media and then contact us to begin the wedding planning process. 

We'll schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your wedding vision, ooh and ahh over the ring and get to know you and your fiance.  After we meet, we'll get the legal stuff out of the way - contract, retainers... then the planning begins!

the Experience

step by step, here's what to expect

Karren + Mark

"Lauren and her team were amazing! They were there from the early stages of wedding planning till the last minute of the wedding night. They were hands on, never missed a thing, and were our advocates. I highly recommend them."  — Karren + Mark

"They were hands on, never missed a thing, and were our advocates."

Lauren + Vincent

"We hired Lauren O & Co. a mere three months before our wedding. The wedding took place in a  church and the reception was held in a tent at our home. We cannot say enough good things about Lauren O and her wonderful team. They were on top of every detail, dealing with every vendor, solving every problem and were just a dream to work with. Thanks to the efficiency of Lauren and her team, we were free to enjoy ourselves thoroughly. We would recommend her and her team to anyone!" — Lauren & Vincent

"We cannot say enough good things about Lauren O and her wonderful team."

Naomi + Keith

"I cannot say enough about Lauren and her team. They were absolutely AMAZING to work with. They were extremely responsive and made our vision for our wedding come to life!!! So many people say wedding planning is so stressful but I can honestly say we felt none of that. The team literally took ALL of the stress off of our shoulders. Everyone that we have spoken to has raved about how beautiful everything turned out and how it was one of if not the best wedding they have been to. I am mad I can only give 5 stars cause I want to give 10+"
