Lauren is a Michigan girl to the core, born and raised in Plymouth who has had her hands in the event industry since she was a teenager. She has always been a planner - being organized and detail orientated has always come naturally. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she knew the event industry is where she wanted to be. So, she began classes at the New York Institute of Art and Design for event and wedding planning. From there she embarked on her dream journey of owning her first event planning company, Detroit Social Co. Her experience over the last 12 years has provided ample opportunities to refine and master the particulars of event planning. Lauren thinks of it all and her creative mind never stops. When she walks into a room her first thought is always how she can transform the space. Designing and creating new experiences for both you and her is something she lives for. She pours her heart into everything she does and has a genuine and true love for the industry. When she isn’t planning and plotting, you can find her reading, traveling, or eating a charcuterie board with a pomegranate martini!

Maranda is our ray of sunshine! She has been in the hospitality industry for over 10 years and has enjoyed every second of it. Having a large, extended family, it is only fitting she finds herself organizing the hustle and bustle of any gathering. The gift of bringing people together and making forever memories is what she loves most about the planning experience.  With a positive outlook on life, she loves to make people happy and brings joy to her clients. When Maranda isn't being creative you can find her recharging and finding inspiration while spending time with friends and family, relaxing at the lake or walking her dogs Pablo and Zetty.
