MARYLAND & DC

KATE SPADE, LILLY PULITZER, AND MONOGRAMS
ELLE & CO:
Lauren graduated from Mount St. Mary’s University with a concentration in Public Relations and Human Communication, and a clear view of what her career would be. From her first wedding assisting as a college intern at Elle & Co. she knew immediately her life was destined to be surrounded by love & weddings in every way. She is married to her sweetheart, Michael, and their wedding consisted of classic beauty, stunning blooms and her favorite thing, monograms.
Since high school, Lauren has had a love of all things weddings so she applied for an internship at Elle & Co. in 2016. Within a few events, both knew they were a match made in heaven. If there are two things Elle loves, it is a charismatic personality and an eagerness to be the best; Lauren exuded both. She has spent numerous years working with both weddings and corporate event planning, which has given her an incredible knowledge of all aspects of the event industry. Just a scan at her reviews on theKnot will tell you all you need to know about her expertise in all things weddings, navigating designs and her heart of gold.
Repeatedly praised for her attention to detail and design, venues look forward to her willingness to think creatively with new thoughts on their spaces. Lauren has an authoritative wit hidden by sweetness & grace, which is why her clients and couples absolutely adore her. She also loves to meet new people and dive headfirst into any conversations about weddings and events.In 2021, Lauren also took over Elle & Co.’s social media and marketing and you’ll find her putting details together by day, meeting vendors for drinks and networking at venues by night. Lauren started as an intern, but quickly became an irreplaceable part of Elle & Co.
You’ll see Lauren getting choked up when the Grooms watch their Brides walking down the aisle, and at every Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dance because she is a major daddy’s (and momma’s) girl. Lauren works with all wedding packages from Week of Coordination to Full Planning & Design, as well as social and corporate events of all sizes.
"Absolutely recommend her! Lauren was both incredibly kind and incredibly professional throughout the entire process. She is very down to earth and extremely polished. Lauren took the time to understand what was important to me as a bride, and helped me think through what and how to prioritize - she did not push us to add anything trendy or unnecessary onto the day and she really focused on making sure what was most important to us was executed perfectly."

Working with Lauren at EED was a dream! From the moment we booked her to be our the whole process went smoother! She was such a key part of making our wedding weekend stress free and so relaxed! She makes her clients feel like family and truly has an eye for detail! She spent so much time cultivating relationships with my husband and me and all of our vendors that you could clearly tell that she is not only good at her job, but that she loves what she does as if it's her own wedding! I couldn't recommend Elle & Co or Lauren more. They're the best in the business!!"

"Choosing to work with Lauren was hands down the BEST wedding planning decision we made. Elle & Co. was recommended to me and honestly any time I mentioned them I heard nothing but great things. From the first time I spoke to Lauren, I felt like I had known her for years. She was so responsive and organized. Everyone says things will always go wrong on your wedding day, but I honestly can say my husband and I both said at the end of the night how we couldn’t think of one thing that went wrong. Trust me, look no further!!"
