Lolo Weddings & Events is a full-scale event planning and design firm based out of the South Bay of Los Angeles County. With over ten years of experience, and a personality that puts her clients at ease, Lauren Layton Smith has made a reputation as an expert in her field.

Lauren Layton Smith (aka LoLo) began her career producing constituent events in Washington D.C. while serving for a US Senator. After planning her own wedding in 2007, she moved to Philadelphia with her husband where she travelled internationally planning events for the Wharton School.  Always wanting to return to the golden state, Lauren and her husband (and cavapoo Bailey) moved to California in 2014.  She then worked for  UCLA Anderson planning their alumni reunions and events as well as the Centennial Campaign celebration before moving to the private sector working for The Wonderful Company.  There, she planned trade media events, employee engagement events, political fundraisers and international Executive Meetings.  However, she missed creativity and working with a variety of clients, thus LoLo Weddings and Events was born!
