Working with Lauren was the single best decision we could’ve made for our wedding day! We initially intended to plan our own wedding but quickly became overwhelmed finding vendors and creating a design plan. After talking with Lauren, she had such a calming and knowledgeable presence. From the day we started working with her, she took care of everything (from contacting vendors to reminding us about details we never even considered). The wedding day could not have gone smoother. My bridesmaids and I found ourselves at a loss of words for how little there was for us to do.
Lauren created a day that truly allowed the bride, groom, and all guests to enjoy themselves and each other's company. We also had the privilege of working with Ashley from Brunette Blossoms on our wedding florals (The amazing Lauren and Ashley duo: The Elysian Jayde Collection). Ashley took my two word floral vision of “white and green” and turned it into something truly magical. Our jaws kept dropping at the bouquets, centerpieces, pillars, hedges, and details on the wedding cake. Ashley is exceptionally creative and does not settle! She took the time to find the best quality florals and deliver the most visually stunning day. Above and beyond all that Lauren and Ashley do, they are genuinely kind and fun to work with! They were so patient, listened, and valued our opinions. Despite our lack of knowledge on the wedding industry and planning, they took the time to explain the whys and hows down to every detail. Even thinking about about our interactions now brings a smile to my face. Regardless of whether you are on the fence about wedding planning services or hoping to plan your wedding yourself, choose Lauren and Ashley! They will bring a nuanced perspective and unimaginable elements of detail that will transform your wedding day into the best day ever!

I plan events for a living and I was super nervous to trust someone with my wedding day but after our initial consultation meeting, Lauren immediately put all my fears to rest. Her commitment to her brides and her attention to detail was evident from the start and she exceeded our expectations in every possible way!! We hired Lauren for the Partial Planning & Design package and brought on Ashley at Brunette Blossoms as our florist. From the bottom of our hearts, hiring these two was the best decision we made for our wedding day. This duo is OUT OF THIS WORLD.
Lauren and Ashley made our day so beautiful and captured my vision so perfectly. It was the wedding of our dreams! The design board that Lauren created was on point and I loved that I could take it to our vendors for inspiration on everything from our invites to the cake. All of our vendors loved it too! Lauren was so helpful answering questions throughout the wedding planning process, sending over helpful documents, giving creative suggestions and making sure to remind us of all the little details that can easily be missed when preparing for such a big day. It’s so easy to get decision fatigue when planning your wedding and Lauren took so much of the stress out of making wedding day decisions. All of the amazing pre-wedding work was nothing in comparison to what she did for us day of. Lauren was cool, calm and collected throughout every part of the day and solved all of the inevitable event day hiccups without us or our families realizing anything, which is a skill only the best events professionals have. Throughout the getting ready morning, she constantly checked on us to make sure we had everything that we needed while simultaneously handling set up and vendor load in. I didn’t have to worry about a thing all day because she had everything handled effortlessly! When the unexpected happened, Lauren handled it like a pro. From making sure all the items we brought for decor were taken to our room to staying on track with all the pictures we wanted to take (it rained all day, so it no small feat) to even finding us at the hotel bar to say goodbye at the end of the night, Lauren did everything without breaking a sweat. I was blown away by her skills and her ability to save the day. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness is impeccable—even down to leaving two slices of cake in our room because we didn’t have time to eat any! We are so so so grateful for Lauren. You will never regret having her lead your wedding day!

Lauren is THE BEST! Working with her was so incredible and I feel so lucky and honored that she was a part of our wedding day. From the start she went above and beyond to help me assemble the best vendor team. She had amazing recommendations, was helpful, knowledgeable, and fielded all of my (many) questions with patience! As our wedding day got closer, she took away the stress of contacting vendors for confirmation, and she made sure no detail was overlooked. She found ways to make the day run smoother and was the best point of contact I could have imagined.
She has such a calming presence and knows the industry inside and out. She was the best possible person to be there with us for the big and small moments of the day and I am SO beyond thankful that she helped with every last detail. If you're on the fence about whether or not you need a wedding planner.... do it and you will thank yourself later. I can not say enough kind words or express my thanks to Lauren enough for pulling together my dream day from start to finish. Worth every penny and then some.

We cannot thank Lauren enough for all the designing, planning and coordination she did for our wedding. Hands down, hiring her was the best decision we made! We had no idea what we wanted our reception to look like and let Lauren mostly handle all of the design elements. She totally knocked it out of the park – the space was so much better than what we could’ve imagined. Her creative vision and meticulous attention to detail truly made a difference, and we received many compliments from our guests.
Throughout the entire planning process, Lauren was professional, communicative, organized and overall just a joy to work with. On our actual wedding, she kept us moving along on time and everything ran so smoothly. We got to enjoy the entire day and did not have to stress about one thing. 10/10, highly recommend hiring Lauren for your wedding!

Above all else, I was so thankful for the support I felt from Lauren. Beyond just making the day look beautiful, I felt that she really cared for me as the bride and helped our dream day come true. She chose and recommended the most talented vendors to bring our vision to life. The wedding day was PERFECT and SEAMLESS, and that's all I could ever hope for. Both her and Maranda were incredibly easy to work with, fun, relatable, organized, professional, and they were fantastic at advocating for what we wanted. Having a wedding planner and design coordinator is a MUST, and we couldn't thank Lo&Co enough for being by our side every step of the way.
