Meet our Company Owner
Hi, I'm Lauren. Cupcake connoisseur, Gemini, part-time comedian (at least I think I’m funny), gif lover, wife to Sean and Mom to Evan and Maia.
Lauren O & Co. was created after I was given the opportunity to assist in planning a wedding and quickly realized I'd found my purpose.
Before founding Lauren O & Co., I worked in the healthcare industry as a project manager. While I excelled at organizing all of the little details and managing the many different personalities involved in each project, the creative in me longed for something more. Planning and designing events that showcase love - in all forms.
As a minority and 1/2 of an interracial marriage, I can relate to underrepresentation. I want all of my couples to feel like their love is the most special, most precious and beautiful - because it is and it deserves to be celebrated.
I can't wait to meet you, welcome to the Co.!

I cannot say enough about Lauren and her team. They were absolutely AMAZING to work with. They were extremely responsiveness and made our vision for our wedding come to life!!! So many people say wedding planning is so stressful but I can honestly say we felt none of that. The team literally took ALL of the stress off of our shoulders. Our wedding came out GORGEOUS!!!! Everyone that we have spoken to has raved about how beautiful everything turned out and how it was one of if not the best wedding they have been to. Every last one of her recommendations was SUPERB! From to caterer to the Emcee and the makeup and hair. Absolutely WONDERFUL! I am mad I can only rate her as 100–I want to give rate her 1000!!
If you are looking for a wedding planner who is going to go beyond what is expected of them, STOP RIGHT HERE! Lauren and her team are one of kind. I worked with Lauren and her team for 2 years. In those two years, Lauren and her staff were nothing short of amazing. They made sure ally my visions and dreams came true. I had some personal issues come up during this wedding process and Lauren was there to take over and help everything come together smoothly. On a scale 1-10, I give Lauren and her team: A thousand!
We called Lauren just one week away from our wedding date and lucky for us, she was available and ready to roll! She was so professional and was two steps ahead of everything from the start. Her team made everything before, during, and after flow seamlessly. Afterwards, my husband and I couldn’t believe how everything was ready to go for us! Would HIGHLY recommend Lauren and her team.
