MARGOT & JASON
"We hired Lauren F (there are two Laurens at Wild Blooms!) to be our wedding planner on the recommendation of our caterer - and what a good decision. We booked the "partial planning" option because we'd already selected some big vendors so didn't need the full planning package, and it was SO wonderful to have her for the months before the wedding in addition to just the month-of. Lauren was our rock, backbone, and cheerleader all in one. She helped us pick vendors, build our timeline, sanity-checked our thousand small worries and choices, and ran the day like a well-oiled machine. She kept track of details I completely forgot about and seamlessly adopted our "low-key" but secretly-not-actually-all-that-low-key style/ untraditional requests for the wedding itself. But above and beyond what you'd expect, she graciously handled the demands of several family members, helped us coordinate deliveries of various supplies to our relatively remote venue/ hotel, and cleaned and organized our hotel room after I'd finished getting ready so we came back to a pristine space (!! so important! do not underestimate how tired you will be and how amazing it is to come back to a clean room!). I'm sure there are many many other things she did that I don't even know about. Plus - Lauren is absolutely *in her element* at the event itself, and that joyful energy was contagious! No one except the bride and groom are happier than Lauren at a wedding!"

"Hiring Lauren is like having a calm, crafty, organized best friend coordinate your wedding details- without working your real-life best friend to the bone. We cannot speak highly enough about Lauren and her services! Lauren was available for communication as soon as we booked and she always put my mind at ease. She is great at knowing when you need ideas or suggestions and when you need support. She has excellent references for vendors if you need them and she does STUNNING florals herself. I was clueless about executing decor and sent her some pictures of things I like and she recreated them perfectly! Lauren coordinated a detailed itinerary and communicated our timing and preferences to all of our vendors and family members. When we had doubts or problems, Lauren went to bat for us in a kind and professional way. I could go on and on but Lauren truly delivers a stress-free wedding day. My coworkers could not believe I was getting married because I was so calm knowing Lauren had everything under control. We were able to enjoy our wedding day with our family and be present and it all went more smoothly than we could have imagined. Our vendors loved Lauren, our families love Lauren, and we LOVE Lauren. I wish we could get married again to work with her more!!!!"

"Hiring Lauren was honestly the best decision we made when planning our wedding. We decided to get married on a DIY farm, requiring coordinating of all things including decor, rentals, catering, flowers, etc etc. Right from the start, Lauren made herself completely available and willing to answer any and every question we had. Since we were planning remotely, she gave us a specially curated list of her personal recommended vendors, which made the wedding planning process SO much easier! She understood our vision from day one, and checked in throughout the year to make sure we were on track. Lauren is organized, communicative, and creative. She proactively handled issues with vendors as we got closer to the wedding and went our of her way to coordinate everything day-of to make sure the rehearsal dinner and wedding day ran smoothly. Best of all, Lauren is the sweetest, most genuine person you could ever want to work with. We really felt like she was a close friend by the day of our wedding and we felt so incredibly lucky to be able to share the wedding planning experience with her."
LINDSAY & TIM
"Hiring Lauren was the best decision we made throughout the wedding planning process (other than actually deciding to get married). We realized pretty early on we needed planning support. Our guests were flying thousands of miles, we had multiple parties and a completely DIY venue. There is no way we would have pulled it off without Lauren. We worked together for over a year to piece together our dream wedding. Lauren is endlessly patient, organized, thoughtful and exactly who you want in your corner as you’re dealing with the inevitable wed stress. Lauren was happy to entertain even the weirdest of wedding concepts and brought a ton of great expertise and vendor recommendations that our guests are still raving about. It’s been three months and I still hear that it was the best wedding our guests have ever attended. That is in large part because of the to the hard work and passion that Lauren brings to her job every day. If you're looking for a wedding spirit guide, look no further!"
AMBER & ANTHONY
"Words cannot express my gratitude for Lauren! She took every vision that we had and turned them into reality. She is professional, attentive to detail and extremely enthusiastic. Any concern that we had, she took immediate interest in and made sure that not only was our happiness met but exceeded. Our wedding day was beautifully put together and went as smoothly as any bride could hope for. Thank you Lauren, for you phenomenal service and for making our wedding day as beautiful as we imagined. We will recommend your services for years to come!
LINDSAY & JACK
"Working with Lauren meant we could relax and enjoy the big day. She was on top of everything throughout the process--she has a ton of experience and provided great advice and suggestions. She recommended a few of the vendors we hired (that we were also really happy with). She has a great vibe, definitely someone you want around while planning such an important day!"
KATELYN & RANDALL
"We could not be happier with Lauren as our wedding coordinator. Originally I reached out to Lauren thinking about hiring a "day of coordinator" as wedding planning and organizing our big day was getting to be a bit daunting to us. Lauren went so far and beyond our expectations and helped with organizing vendors, reaching out to everyone to settle the day of timeline, making sure that each contact had everything they needed, ensuring that our decor was set up, that all of our wedding party and family were taken care of, that I was calm and happy on my day and so much more. If you are thinking about hiring help with your wedding, don't hesitate to hire Lauren. Me and Husband agreed it was the best decision we made during the planning process. THANK YOU LAUREN!!!"

If you're reading this --stop what you're doing-- and contact Lauren! We were planning a 'DIY' wedding in just 6 months, and the minute she came on board, it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. She managed to keep me calm, think of everything I never would have thought of, and somehow responded to my emails in a nano-second (seriously). Besides that, she is a wonderful person: zen, fun, friendly, encouraging, organized, a visionary, and a true professional. Everyone always says your wedding day is a blur, but I did not feel that way. I felt present and in the moment all day, and I truly thank Lauren for that! She was like having a much better version of myself handling every detail so that all we had to do was enjoy the day with our family and friends. Do yourself a favor... hire Lauren. Do yourself a bigger favor... hire her ASAP.
MARCI & LARRY
"Our wedding with Lauren was a huge success! We got married at an a-la-cart farm venue where there were more details than normal. She handled every single detail from working closely with the photographer, to bringing in bathrooms, to decor ideas we had for our special day. She has an amazing reputation and worked seamlessly with all of our vendors. It also rained unexpectedly the day of our (outdoor) wedding, and the work Lauren did to keep our vision alive was insane! Within minutes we had a new ceremony site set up, and our guests were comfortably seated. Lauren and her team were key in making our special day so incredibly magical!"
