I interned with a planner in college & that’s where my love for weddings began. Her doors closed, & Olivia Lauren’s opened. What an honor it was (& still is) to get a real, front row seat to what true, good love looks like.
Between the awkward bathroom changes while guests arrive, wiping tears before a father lets his daughter go, moving reception layouts around outside in the rain (or a hurricane…true story), dancing in the corner while the band plays, the big squeeze hugs as we send the bride & groom off in their getaway car…it just all clicked. Weddings are my happy place.
At the same time, I was exploring a career in wedding photography with an incredible photography team. Filling both roles allowed me to have an insight that is unmatched in the planning industry. I’ve seen how all of the pieces come together & I’ve learned how to best serve couples & their vendor team seamlessly.
After hundreds of sparklers lit for exists, hours traveled across state lines, & too many happy tears to count, I am thrilled to present to you Olivia Lauren Events.
I believe what is done in love is done well. I love handwritten notes, Harry Potter marathons, & a good margarita.
Brianna recently got married, so she has the incredible experience of being a bride & planning her own wedding to help guide you through your day. I’ve known Brianna since I was 5 (fun fact: her mom pulled my tooth in 1st grade). What a full circle moment, her & I working together on wedding days! Brianna is based in the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill), making our scope of service bigger & capacity for telling love stories that much greater.
