Lauren made our special day come together flawlessly

Lauren is such a wonderful human being and was a phenomenal wedding planner! We used her services for month of coordinating and it was such a game changer! She handled all communications with our vendors 4-6 weeks prior to our wedding day and was always available for any questions we had in the months before our wedding. She met with us multiple times during the planning process to help us navigate the ever-changing COVID pandemic. Lauren helped brainstorm with us on how to make our plan B wedding just as special as what we originally envisioned. I would highly recommend her as she made our special day come together flawlessly!

The best decision we made!

I would give Lauren and the Lion House team a review of 1 MILLION stars if I could. Lion House has mastered the perfect balance of planning and design while keeping your desires and style as a couple top of mind. Each decision Lauren and her team helped us make was intentional, timeless, and a true reflection of our relationship. They helped seamlessly tie in some of our favorite things in a way that was so unique and something that I could have never discovered on a Pinterest board.

I'm not exaggerating when I say Lion House helped us plan not 1, not 2, but 3 different weddings due to COVID. Plan 3 moved the entire wedding to a different state, was executed in less than 2 months, and truly exceeded ALL of our expectations. Countless guests came up to us complimenting the unique touches of the day but also kept saying "Wow your wedding planners are amazing! So calm and helpful. They literally thought of everything!!!"

Lion House was without a doubt THE BEST DECISION WE MADE!!!

had the pleasure to work with Lauren from Lion House at the First Annual Unveil Raleigh event. As a photographer, I have done my fair share of fashion shows over the years. They are usually unorganized train wrecks and are probably my least favorite type of event to shoot. Unveil Fashion Show & Benefit was none of those things! From start to finish the event was perfect. The email communications, the planning meeting, the day of prep, were all handled professionally and efficiently. The event its self-was way beyond my expectations and blew all the guest away. The fashion show was fantastic and very inspiring. There are usually little hiccups in the flow of events that cant is helped, there weren鈥檛 even any of those. We started on time, the social media campaign was handled very well, and all the vendors she brought together worked together very well. The event is one that I can see only gaining in popularity over the years in the Raleigh area. I would highly recommend to my clients to use Lion House for their event planning. Lauren鈥檚 professionalism, eye for design and detail, and overall positive attitude are a perfect combination. I am looking forward to next years event.

Lauren is a true PRO! She goes over and above to be sure her clients are well cared for. As a venue, it's important for us to partner with strong vendors who understand their role in the event process, and Lauren does just that. From start to completion she is alongside her clients the full way, and in the end, they have a beautiful result due to her vision and organization. Cannon Room highly recommends Lion House.
