The coordinator of your dreams

I truly only have positive words for Lauren M. and the Elle Ellinghaus and Co company! Working with Lauren was a fun, stress free experience, and she made our wedding day run smoothly! Our first meeting was a virtual zoom call, and we instantly knew we wanted to work with her! She was friendly and knowledgeable and I could tell we could trust in her to do an amazing job on our wedding day. Lauren sends you a detailed planning packet once you book to help guide the wedding planning, and she emails super fast with responses. We met with her to review our packet for the month of wedding coordination package, and she asked us things we hadn’t even thought of, gave us suggestions, and then took over all vendor contact which was great! She helped us find a linen company, and answered our various emails about linen selections. She also sent an extensive timeline that not only impressed us, but also our vendors and family members as well! Everyone knew where to be and when to be there. On the wedding rehearsal day and the day of the wedding, Lauren led everyone with ease, and kept the day running smoothly! Our day would not have gone as smoothly if it wasn’t for her! If you need a day of or month of coordinator, or a full wedding planner, make sure to book with Elle Ellinghaus and work with Lauren. It’ll be the best experience!!

Amazing! Outstanding!

We love Lauren! She made the entire process fun. Because of Lauren, we felt confident that everything go smoothly - and it did.
She handled all of the details - coordinating vendors, giving us a comprehensive timeline, managing things we couldn't have anticipated - and also made sure the overall event was wonderful for everyone. Lauren is charming; she is super-personable, easy to work with, professional, and just incredible.

Elle and her team are amazing to work with! We know that when we are working with EED on an event it will be run smoothly and professionally. He designs are always breath-taking. One of our favorite things about working with Elle is that because her designs are so polished and unique, they are also challenging to execute. Having worked with her for many years we know her to be fearless in design and steadfast in execution- and we love how she continues to push us to be on the cutting edge of event production. Elle has most certainly cemented her firm on the VERY short list of premier wedding and event designers in the Baltimore, DC, and VA area. If you're looking for extraordinary, you've found it.
