Lauren is an amazing wedding planner. I hired her as a "day of" planner because I decided late to even get a planner. She was right there by my side the moment we signed the contract and I quickly found out that a "day of" starts helping you months in advance. It was a wonderful thing because I had a lot on my plate and needed all the help I could get. There was a few things I didn't have done and she took care of them for me in stride. For example: she asked me day one "what have you not done" the biggest thing on my mind at the time was the linens for the tables. So I told her and I didn't know where to start. I thought I would get some advice and instead she sent me a list of vendors and set up appointments with them right away. It was amazing! I was out of town and her taking that sort of initiative that quick was a huge reassurance I hired the right person for the job. Everything was that easy, even on the day of the wedding. She kept in contact with me daily and had answers for everything. What was even better was when I had to connect her to other vendors. The florist, Dj, photographer, etc., they all really enjoyed working with her. Some of them even added her to their preferred vendor list! They saw right away what I got to see day in and day out, she's detail oriented, organized, to the point, friendly, professional and knows a lot about weddings. She also comes up with amazing ideas along the way to help you save money. She did all of this, planning my wedding, plus held other jobs, it surprised me she had the same 24 hours in a day that I do with how much she accomplished all of the time. The day of the wedding was just as smooth with her as the planning process. She could tell when I would get nervous about something not going according to plan, calm me down and moved forward with a new plan. She really works well under pressure!! She even brought assistants on the day of and they followed her stride accordingly with no issues. I didn't get a lot of interaction with them but I had guests ask what company she was from because they could see the professionalism. I would recommend Lauren to anyone I know who needs help plannning any sort of large event (not even just weddings, she's that good!) . I honestly can't think of any negatives which is refreshing because she is the only vendor I had that experience with and that's almost impossible to find!
