Lauren and her team are the queen of details. not one thing went missing and not one moment was wrong. The timing was everything 2 days of weddings and not one moment was off schedule. Lauren checked in all night to make sure we were fed and had a drink in our hand. She was incredibly attentive. I do not have one regret or one missing item from our day it was everything I ever dreamed of. Thank you to an amazing team!!!Sent on 11/09/2020

Sweet + talented planning team
The ELM team planned one of the very first weddings at The Gadsden House + we’ve LOVED working with them on several weddings each year since! Lauren + Katie are both spectacular planners that go above + beyond for their clients. Throughout the planning process, they successfully assist clients in navigating through important event logistics, such as vendor selection, menu creation, floor plan design, etc. In addition to planning well-executed events, we love that each wedding is unique + representative of the couple - traditional or modern, colorful or classic, laid back or formal. Lauren + Katie’s vendor relations, friendly “can do” spirits + charisma allow couples to really ENJOY their engagements. You are in wonderful hands with these ladies + their team!Sent on 04/29/2020

As an event planner myself, I knew the use of a planner would be invaluable for our destination wedding in Charleston. I interviewed a series of wedding planners to try and find the right match, but as soon as I talked with Lauren I knew she was “the one.” From the moment I started working with Lauren, I knew we were in great hands. She is extremely organized, proactive, resourceful and responsive – all the things one should look and hope for in a wedding planner. Her and Katie make a fabulous team and were always just an email or phone call away if I ever had any questions throughout the planning process.Sent on 05/05/2019
One of the best parts of working with the ELM team was seeing them bring my vision for our wedding to life. Although I was responsible for choosing and contracting with vendors, they handled every single aspect of the rentals we had to bring in for our venue (i.e., chairs, tables, linens, bars, furniture – the list goes on and on). I can’t tell you how big of a stress reliever it was to have the ELM team handle this for me. Not only in ordering the rentals, but handling the delivery, set up, and dismantle as well. Every single aspect of the look/design was perfect, and better than we could have ever imagined. They truly made my wedding dreams come true!
I should also mention that Lauren and Katie ALWAYS respected my budget and left every final decision up to me.
But by and large the biggest value the ELM teams bring is their complete dedication to the job, and day-of coordination. I can confidently say that I did not have ONE worry when I work up on my wedding morning – I knew Lauren & Katie had everything handled. The week before the wedding, Lauren had sent out an email to our vendor’s with our wedding timeline. This ensured that all of our vendors knew where to be when, who was responsible for what, and how the event would flow.
They worked tirelessly all morning/afternoon to set up while we were getting ready in the bridal suite. They ensured every member of our wedding party knew where to go when, while also providing any emotional support I may have needed to calm my nerves. When the ceremony was over, they greeted me and my new husband with our favorite cocktails. When we returned back from photos, Lauren huddles us in a room so we could sneak some food down, fill out our marriage licenses and have a moment together alone before we were surrounded by friends and family congratulating us. Lauren and Katie took care of us, and it made every moment that much more special.
My biggest fear for my wedding day was that I wasn’t going to be able to be present – I’m someone who is always caught up in the details, trying to make sure everyone else is having a good time, before I kick back and relax myself. But with Katie & Lauren, I was 100 percent present for every single moment of the wedding. It was the most emotional, joyous day of our lives, and we are SO incredibly thankful to the ELM team for making that possible.
With Lauren and Katie you are in the BEST hands.

Lauren is AMAZING. I love working with her! She is super talented and organized, but also down-to-earth and alot of fun. Working with a planner/designer that is easy to work with makes the feel and "flow" of the day that much better - As a photographer I appreciate this so much and I know her brides and grooms do too!
