I hired Lauren Smith to be my day of coordinator for my wedding, but she ended up being so much more than that! In the months leading up to my wedding, Lauren, my mom and I met several times to make sure that every detail was hammered out. Lauren’s schedule was very flexible and she was able to come to my venue (about a two hour roundtrip for her) to meet with the venue coordinator and lighting company to ensure that each aspect of the wedding was clear for all parties. Throughout the planning process, I encountered times when I was not sure how to bargain with the vendor or how to ‘nicely’ demand what I want and Lauren stepped in to deal with each vendor in a very professional way. She went through each vendor contract, made sure we were getting everything we paid for, and made the planning process so much easier! My mom and I were constantly saying, “Thank God we have Lauren” when it came down to the business side of planning a wedding. Furthermore, Lauren was amazing on the days leading up to the wedding. We had a phone meeting the week before and went through every minute of the wedding day schedule. She also attended the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner to make sure that it all went over smoothly. Finally, on the day of the wedding, Lauren was a calming and amazing presence! I gave Lauren an idea of how I wanted my tables (i.e. cookie, guest book, photos, etc.) to be set up, but mostly left it to her expertise, and she made everything look perfectly beautiful. She was only seen when I needed her, and when there were hiccups throughout the day (most of which I was not aware of on the day of), she dealt with them without any hesitation or concern. She is calm, confidant and always smiling, which made working with her a pleasure always!

Hiring Lauren as our wedding coordinator for our Redondo Beach wedding was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. From beginning to end, she took meticulous care of each and every detail. She shared in our excitement, made us feel we could put our trust in her and never became stressed, even when we contacted her numerous times a day. She had creative ideas and provided good alternatives to solve problems we encountered during the preparation. On our wedding day, she was super relaxed and made sure everything went smoothly – many of our guests have even commented on this.
Lauren has a passion for weddings! She is very organized and pays great attention to detail. We would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding or any event in that matter. We had an amazing day and it was thanks to all of Lauren’s help!

Late night emails or early morning calls, I've expressed this to you Lauren several times during these really intense weeks, but it bears repeating: it was SUCH a pleasure to work with you! I was so impressed with not only how detail oriented you were, but also with your problem solving skills, can-do attitude and sense of humor as we juggled dozens of balls at once. It was awesome that we were always on the same wavelength both when it comes to the look/feel of the experience, as well as the handling of the execution. Even when we had crazy long days for weeks on end, you were always a delight to work with.
