Who is the ideal #laurenocouple? Glad you asked!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The clients we love to work with and who love working with us, understand that the most important part of their wedding is the experience it offers their guests—from the food they're served and the glasses they raise to the music that pulls them toward the dance floor. They don’t want flashy for flashy’s sake (who does that!?!) they want pure revelry with their favorite people.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They trust the vendors they hire (read they know we’ve got this under control) and invest in high- quality elements that make a massive impact on guest experience. Their wedding honors their love story, puts Pinterest to shame, and leaves their guests raving for years to come. Because if people aren’t still talking about your wedding, did it even happen? 💁🏽‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sound like you? Then let’s chat. We’re almost fully booked for 2022 but we have availability for 2023 and can’t wait to work with you!

Hello to the new faces around here, I’m Lauren. Lead Wedding Planner and resident reality tv expert here at The Co.! (Did y’all watch #loveisblind? Messy!)

I know the rules say intros are reserved for #fridayintroductions but we’re rule breakers over here.

That spirit of breaking all the rules is what led me to create this business over nine years ago. I wanted to see more diversity in the wedding world, and so I created a business deeply rooted in showcasing love stories of all forms—particularly the kind that are underrepresented in the wedding industry.

Here, you’ll find planners, people, and creative partners who see you, appreciate you, and maybe even look like you.

Because it’s not too much to ask.

I’m excited to meet you all! Drop a line and tell me a bit about yourself.

Have you picked a photographer yet? It can be one of the most stressful choices - it's the only tangible memories you will have after your big day. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The most important thing is to find someone who shares the same energy as you and your boo. If you are a wild and fun couple and hire a serious artist type, there will be some friction - let's avoid that. The photographer should bring out the best in you and leave you with the most authentic memories.​​​​​​​​

We had the best call today with @artfullibations to come up with a fun signature cocktail that honors our client’s love of Prince and the color purple. When we present your design board it includes everything, including the drink options because we gotta coordinate.

Check back to see how we incorporate the purple one into into their design.

Signature wedding cocktails are a fun way to add a little personality to your big day. Your signature drink can also enhance your wedding decor by choosing garnishes that match your theme and colors.

There are so many options for every season, design and theme and we love to get creative with drink options that taste just as good as they look.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Added bonus: Guests enjoy signature drinks as a way to try something new and as a nice, no-pressure, way to order a drink at the bar 🥂🥂

This week we attended three tastings, two venue walkthroughs, pulled rentals at the design center and had around 100000000 zoom calls and tomorrow we’re headed to Chapel Hill for a tasting with B&G.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Engagement season might’ve come to an end but wedding season is in full swing. And we are here for it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheers to the weekend!

Tying the knot on a rainy day makes for some great photos and some good luck. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Did you know that tying the knot on a rainy day is believed to be good luck? It is said to make the bond even stronger since a wet knot is very difficult to untie. ​​​​​​​​

Your design should reflect who you are.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I first met N & K they knew exactly what they wanted. They wanted a romantic spring wedding that married modern with touches of vintage. As a designer that’s exactly the description I’m looking for from my clients. When you KNOW what you want, it makes the process of crafting your design easier.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when you don’t know what you want, it means that I have to really get to know you. Where do you shop? What colors do you like? Where do you purchase your clothes? Do you like designer? A mix of high end and affordable fashion?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I typically spend months getting to know my couples and pulling inspiration from our time together. When we present your design it’s highly personal and filled with details we’ve learned you love just from listening to you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Struggling with design? We’re almost booked for full planning clients in 2022 but we do have a few dates open for June & September. Thinking about getting married in 2023? Let’s meet and get started on your design!
