Day of coordinator

Lauren was an amazing day of coordinator! She helped our wedding day and rehearsal go so smooth and she is also very fun and knows how to have a good time with the wedding party and guests! :) You will be in great hands with Lauren as your coordinator! She is very responsive to all questions and planning leading up to the big day.

Absolutely Amazing!

Lauren was amazing and went above and beyond to help us with planning, answering any questions we had, and making sure everything was on track. We had two wedding ceremonies in one day and Lauren was there working behind the scenes the whole day to make it run smoothly! She was accommodating and helped with extra seating for lunch that we wanted torn down before our reception, she cleaned throughout the day without ever being noticed. Not to mention, she was super nice and attentive to the wedding party to make sure we had everything we needed!

Day of Coordinator

I cannot say it enough… get yourself a day of coordinator! As someone that loves planning and control, I thought it would be challenging to have someone else running things on the big day, but Lauren is a professional and after a few meetings, I knew she would rock it. She knew exactly what I wanted and executed it FLAWLESSLY on the day of. It was such a blessing to have Lauren to coordinate vendors, pull together the perfect decor, and organize all the moving parts (and people). Lauren allowed me, my partner and our families to enjoy the day and focus our attention there instead of worrying about details. We would definitely recommend Lauren to help on your big day and can’t thank her enough for all of her hard work!

Lauren Gardner
Owner

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am the owner of Elizabeth Bliss! I am a Colorado native, Starbucks enthusiast, and a proud dog mamma. Growing up, my birthday parties were an event in and of themselves. I’d sit down with my mom and figure out the theme, color schemes, create the perfect invites, and buy decorations to create a top notch party. I guess you could say that same passion for planning has followed me into my adult life! I found my love for wedding and event planning working as a personal assistant to a wedding planner in Colorado, and the second I planned a wedding from start to finish, I knew this was the perfect career for me. I have been in the industry for 3 years now and have done all types of events from weddings, to quinceaneras, to non profit fundraisers. With the help of my friends and family I have been able to grow my business from Colorado to Florida, Illinois, and Iowa! I’m excited to get in touch with you to help plan an amazing event!
