    TN's Best Wedding Planning (from the perspective of a 2020 Bride)!

    The Get Together Events Co. was the best decision we made for our wedding day! I was fortunate enough to be able to work with Lauren herself the month prior to our big day- nailing down details, meeting with vendors, checking things off my list, coordinating the day-of schedule, etc. Every interaction, communication methods, working docs she created for organization and planning, etc. helped put my mind at ease, since we were a COVID postponed and re-scheduled 2020 wedding. The actual day-of was amazing. Having Lauren onsite to help with the final details, as well as major ceremony setup that we were unable to get to beforehand, was really above and beyond what we could have anticipated and allowed for me (the bride) to be able to sit back and enjoy my wedding day. Also, our wedding was rescheduled for a holiday (July 4th) since it was the only Saturday our venue had left for the year, so we were super lucky to be able to have Lauren there for us! I highly recommend her and her team for your big day!

    They're the best!

    Working with Lauren and Justine was the BEST decision we made for our wedding! They were super organized, detail-oriented, and so knowledgeable without making the nitty-gritty stressful. They made us feel confident and excited about every task, not to mention the fact that they paced our tasks so kindly that we never felt overwhelmed by them. Best of all, they made all of this truly FUN!

    On the day of our wedding Justine arrived full of energy and a sense of humor and stayed that awesome until past midnight! But she was also so on top of everything, so able to read the room, and so ready to have our back anytime we needed her. Also, I want to mention that she set up our venue just as we had envisioned it, or even better. This is a no-brainer--they are the best!

Lauren Schaefer

Lauren Schaefer

The Get T0gether Events Co. Founder + Month-Of Coordinator + Event Manager

Hey y'all! I'm Lauren. As a TGT client, you'll personally work with me as I iron out all the details of your day and create organizational documents that dreams are made of, before giving the binder over to your Event Manager. As the leader of the merry band of managers, I've selected and trained this team (hard) to be an extension of myself, providing the organization, relief, and FUN that this company was built on.

While my journey to wedding coordination was not planned (ha! how ironic), after years in large-scale, non-profit events, I can't imagine my life anywhere else. The ability to have a personal impact on two humans’ lives, is the greatest honor of MY life. I look forward to working with y'all!
