Pure Expert

From start to finish Lauren so warmly and calmly guided us through what seemed like an overwhelming endeavor. Lauren is an expert at what she does and because of that our wedding day was a beautiful vision come to life! I know it takes a village to pull off a wedding, but she was the shining beacon guiding everyone through it, especially on the day of, and that did not go unnoticed. I also want to thank her for calming me down and working so quickly, all with a sense of humor when I rushed into the venue with a stained train! Not all hero’s wear capes, as they say ☺ Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts

Created a perfect and seamless day!

I cannot recommend Lauren enough!! She is kind, professional, detail oriented, organized, and so fun to work with! She made Robert and I feel so special on our wedding day as she worked to make every moment perfect (which it was). We truly felt like royalty on our wedding day. And Lauren was also just a joy to be around and felt like we were old friends having fun throughout the day. I have 0 complaints with my whole wedding day, which was surprising because I thought at least one thing would go wrong, but Lauren handled everything so wonderfully that the entire day felt seamless and effortless for Robert and me. Lauren gave us the ability to be worry-free and just enjoy our wedding day. Our day was nothing but love and happiness and we owe that to Lauren orchestrating every detail!

Simply Amazing

We couldn’t have asked for more from our wedding planner, Lauren Gertz of MDPEvents. Lauren was so professional, very knowledgeable, and so easy to work with during our entire wedding planning and wedding day. Lauren is an amazing communicator and never hesitates to provide her experienced advice. She made our wedding day flow exactly how we had requested and we were blown away with how she was in the background taking care of the entire event; without interruption. There was never a pause in her service and her talent is so impressive. We highly recommend Lauren - MDPEvents.
