I knew from the moment that I met Lauren from In Focus Events, she was going to make my wedding day seamless.
My husband and I got married at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in March 2016. My mom and I had done most of the wedding preparations ourselves, so we just needed someone to help us execute all of our plans so that we could enjoy the day.
After deciding to forego our venue's coordination services (which were over-priced considering the cost of the venue) and receiving tons of quotes from day-of coordinators that were way over our budget....I decided to turn to the Thumbtack app. By the GRACE OF GOD, I found Lauren on the app just a few months before our wedding! I had planned to meet with Lauren and a few other coordinators before making my decision. Luckily, I saved myself some time by meeting with Lauren first. I cancelled my other consultations and immediately signed a contract with In Focus Events.
Even though we paid Lauren for Day-Of Coordination services, she went above and beyond to make herself available for me anytime I needed her. Not only did she meet with me several times leading up to our wedding, I was texting her at least weekly with different questions, concerns, advice, etc. She even calmed our panic attack when my mom and I realized late one night that my wedding dress didn't fit! She was AMAZING and truly cares about her brides.
Fast forward to the week of the wedding, Lauren was on top of EVERYTHING. She reminded me of small details that I had missed (ash trays for our cigar bar) and helped me get my last minute to-do list done. She iinsisted on coming by to pick up ALL of our wedding decorations and macaron favors the day before the wedding so that she could set them up as soon as she arrived at the venue the next day, which was SO helpful to me since I turned in my apartment keys the day before our wedding. She even took all of the decor out of her car and reloaded on the wedding day to ensure it was safe overnight! I should also mention that after picking up all of our decor and taking it across town, she drove all the way back to coordinate our rehearsal later that afternoon!
On our wedding day, Lauren was organized, fun, and beyond helpful. The day ran so smoothly, and even the minor hiccups (the florist forgot to give me a toss bouquet) were solved quickly by Lauren and her team.
I am so grateful to In Focus Events for making my wedding day relaxing for myself and my family. As detailed people and Type-A personalities, its often difficult for my mom and I to hand over control to other people when it comes to special events, but we are SO grateful that we had Lauren to take care of the special day. I only wish that I could have Lauren organize more things in my life! I can't wait to work with her again and again. She was truly a blessing!
