    Lauren And CO

    Let’s start with this: I’m an awful corporate employee. I spent years working in project management for a health insurance company- and, while I loved managing the distinct personalities and moving pieces, the lack of creativity left my spirit longing for more. (So. Much. More.) Bubbling beneath the surface the entire time was my lifelong obsession with weddings. (I have Steel Magnolias to thank for that.) I was enamored with the idea of using my creativity and organizational expertise to help couples celebrate their partnership—and, as a minority and someone in an interracial marriage, I was particularly interested in serving the underrepresented in an industry where I didn’t see a single professional or bride who looked like me. So, when a planner I followed announced she needed an assistant, I naturally applied. Turns out, she loved me...and I loved planning weddings. (And you can bet I waved a real quick goodbye to the insurance industry.) Today, I have more than nine years of experience under my belt and a serious penchant for planning under pressure. (Ask me about the time I pulled off an unreal party in six weeks for an NBA player and 40 of his closest friends.) As someone who lives for the smallest details and thrives when I’m working toward something meaningful—I love how wedding planning allows me to constantly take on challenges, meet new people, and get down on a complicated timeline or large guest list. Above all, I’m a boundary queen and a big believer in efficiency—you don’t deserve anything less. I’m not going to waste your time or sugarcoat things (but I do love some red velvet cake). Instead, I’m here to get it done and make it dope. Because, like you, I’m all about making meaningful things happen (and happen fast).
