About

On June 7th, 2014, I got to marry my best friend. We got engaged in January 2013 while he was living in Scotland, and I took the next 15 months to plan my mostly do-it-yourself dream wedding. I didn't grow up dreaming of my perfect wedding, but I knew I wanted my best friends to be comfortable and buy a dress they would wear again. I knew I wanted the colors to be black, white and gold with hints of red. I knew I wanted the cake to be delicious, the food to be fantastic and for our closest friends and family to dance the night away.  

 

I am a meeting/conference planner by trade, but have always had dreams of planning weddings and events. After planning my own wedding, it confirmed what I always thought, that planning special events is my true passion.

 

I look forward to the opportunity to make your hopes and dreams of the perfect event come true. I can't wait to help make your event everything you have been dreaming it would be and more. I am a firm believer that there is no detail to small, and that every event is unique because of the small details. Let me help you bring your dream event to life.

Lauren Estridge is worth her weight in gold.  She's creative, talented, competent, hard working and an absolute delight to work with for both bride and MOB.  She helped make this the "best wedding ever" (to quote friends of the bride and groom)  and allowed me to dance the night away without a care.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.
