If I had to sum up Lauren's planning services in a word, that word would be INVALUABLE. From start to finish she was there to help guide me to decisions, design my ideal day, help me work that ideal into my budget and execute the services and reception perfectly. She ensured my day went smoothly, and that I didn't spend anytime worrying about it.
And there were many things about my wedding day that did not lend itself to smooth. A torrential downpour which meant Lauren had to change from a lawn ceremony to a covered one day of (it turned out better than the original much to my pleasure!) She kept her cool the entire time!
I did not have a large budget or overly fancy needs. I know when you are working in the budget you may think a planner is an expense you can go without. Using ELM Events as my planner saved us money in the long run. Her knowledge helps you understand and prioritize details that Pinterest/magazines/photos make you feel like you need, but really go unnoticed at the event.
She has planned hundreds of events and her knowledge on space, vendors, flowers, menu, trends and entertainment were immensely helpful for me. It was like having a friend to help me plan my wedding because she was truly invested in our happiness for our wedding.
