You're in great hands
The champagne's finished and the engagement ring is sparkling on your finger… And now it's time to plan ourselves a wedding! If you've ever been a bridesmaid or even just watched 27 Dresses, you'll know wedding planning is no easy feat. The endless to-do lists are enough to give any girl a headache.
This is where I come in. With me you're in calm, professional hands - you'll never have to worry about missing out a crucial detail or having to deal with the not-so-magical side of wedding planning. I'll take care of all the coordination, and you can enjoy every moment of being a bride-to-be.
As a romantic with an eye for style and detail, I've been planning weddings for over a decade, both grand and intimate. No matter the scale, I've always taken pride in creating one-of-a-kind events that are tailored to my brides' individual personalities, yet tasteful and classic.
But it's more than just that. A wedding is a transformative journey - If you ask my brides, they'll tell you stories of how we've walked that road together, laughed together, worked together. We're not just planner and client; we're great friends by the time they complete that journey at the end of the aisle.
My favorite part of that journey? Even though I've done this for more than ten years, it's still the same: the look on my clients' faces when they see their reception room for the first time. That expression of amazement and delight is what I live for.
About Lauren Dickens
The question I often get is: Why Elle Audrey, when my name is Lauren? The "Elle" is what my friends call me since it's my first initial, and you can call me too. Audrey is my grandmother's middle name. As a little girl, I've always watched my grandma decorating her home and entertaining guests. She was terrific at it: her home smelled of cookies, there were flowers absolutely everywhere, and her guests always left smiling at the end of the day.
People loved her energy and her warm heart. I'd like to think I inherited those traits, which led me to what I'm doing today: planning an amazing wedding for you.
"I can't even begin to express how grateful I am to have found Lauren! My wedding was beyond my wildest dreams and my guest will NOT stop talking about how fabulous everything was! Lauren and her team went well above and beyond in every aspect. She was with me every step of the way, through the good and trying times.. It was a dream come true, and I can thank the Elle Audrey team for that! They are the VERY BEST!!!
