    A detail master

    She made perfection happen! Lauren was a smiling, receptive, and professional guiding force since we first met her. She was fantastic – so organized and helpful. She did not disappoint! From the inception, she was attentive to our needs and timely in her responses to us. Never did we see her without a smile, and her patience is to be commended, as well as her knowledge of the industry. She truly went above and beyond She is a detail master, and we couldn’t be happier!

    Absolute Dream to Work With

    Lauren's attention to detail, timeliness, and creative input made this entire process SO easy and seamless – I literally couldn’t have done it without her. I have told anybody that has asked, “What’s your event coordinator like?” – “She is an ABSOLUTE DREAM!” Our wedding is something we will always remember and we were lucky to have her with us along the way! Spot on in EVERY way with EVERY detail! She is the best!

Team of MDP Events

Lauren Gertz

Lauren Gertz

Owner & Lead Event Planner

Lauren Gertz has a strong passion for all things weddings and events. She grew up in Rhode Island and has now made Sarasota home. Growing up, she always loved planning, organizing, and detailing events, especially weddings. She found her niche working in Newport, RI many years ago for an event planning company and realized it was her dream career. She was working in the Boston Seaport for four years executing all styles of events prior to moving south.

"MDP Events was born in 2020 out of a passion for the industry as well as a drive to bring others joy through events and celebrations. I opened MDP Events in honor of my best friend Margaretta Dundon Potter who shared the same obsession and love for weddings that I do. I want to create the "Most Divine Productions" in honor of Maggie, but most importantly for each client. I've had the honor to plan countless events and I’ve learned how to make each unique vision come to life, while my clients enjoy the planning journey stress-free."
