Wedding & Event Planner


As a natural encourager and communicator (aka your biggest cheerleader and favorite coach), I enjoy every step of the planning process with you, learning your vision and preferences, listening carefully to your ideas and making sure they unfold in a beautiful, purposeful and enjoyable celebration. Life’s moments are meant to be experienced fully and celebrated well! Call on me to handle the planning so you can be truly present for the big event you’ve been looking forward to.

Some of the most rewarding times in my life are the special occasions I have planned, directed, decorated, served and spoken at: weddings, corporate events, bridal showers, birthday parties, and weekend retreats. I leverage that experience and bring my best to work for you and your family, friends and coworkers. It’s my goal to let your lights shine throughout your special day. In fact, each group gathering has a personality of its own, and showcasing that uniqueness is what makes the moment a memory for life!

Your special day starts now


The ring on your finger is dazzling, and now you feel dazed at the thought of all the details of a wedding? I am here to tame the details and help bring your wedding day dreams to life with professionalism and enthusiasm. From helpful tips, suggestions, recommendations and reminders to vendor contacts, contracts and budget management, my level of involvement and service is tailored to your needs.

Pricing is determined by services to be provided.


You’ve contacted your vendors, said yes to the dress and made a million decisions. Now you need someone you can trust to keep the train on the tracks all the way through your big day. That’s where I come in, so you can focus on you in those magical few days before you tie the knot. If you’re a bride who lives to organize, loves to plan and just needs help bringing your timeline to the finish line, this option fits you like a glove.


From birthday parties and family reunions to office training events, grand openings and retirement parties, I am here to orchestrate and direct your gathering to suit the size and personality of your group and type of celebration. Need a second set of hands to work

in collaboration with other planners? I welcome the opportunity to contribute to your success! Services and pricing will vary according to your group’s needs.

Life is an opportunity to

celebrate something new

every day.


notes from my clients


“Thank you a million times over for everything you did to make this weekend happen! You were a dream and an absolutely delightful director!! I’ll never know the countless hours you put into making our day so very special but I’ll always be ever so grateful. Your cheerful disposition made the day shine even more brightly for us, and my fave memories were you praying for us before the ceremony started and the pic you snapped of the guys before they walked out. Keep up the awesome work. YOU ARE A GIFT!” – Kate Jackson, Bride

“Thank you for directing this special occasion for us. You did a beautiful job in getting us all where we needed to be and keeping us all together.”

“Laura didn’t just decorate our event space the way she wanted, she asked us questions and listened to what was important to us, took our ideas and put her touches on them, transforming the vision into a beautiful reality. She was professional and customer focused and wasn’t happy until everything was just how we wanted. She was always on time and delivered everything she promised. She was also very welcoming and engaging with our guests. We would definitely recommend Laura for any event, big or small.”

– Dave and Jenn, The Forum
