Best decision we made for our wedding
Hiring Lauren of The Lion House was the absolute best decision we could have made for our wedding. We worked with her for almost a full year planning what became the best day of our lives. In the beginning, Lauren worked with us to create the most beautiful and meticulously curated mood boards that helped us envision exactly what we had told her we wanted for our wedding day. She was able to design exactly what was in our heads, as well as work through any logistical complications we would have never thought of.Sent on 09/24/2019
About halfway through our planning process, my husband and I decided to plan an elopement instead, and Lauren couldn’t have been more supportive. Though it would be a much smaller scale event for her, she was actually excited for us! This time around, I let her have more creative freedom and kept saying "just do what you think I'll like." I trusted her judgement and vision 100%, and WOW, did she live up to our expectations! The Lion House also did all of our floral arrangements for the day, and every detail was perfection. When I saw my bouquet, ceremony set up, and reception space on the day, my eyes filled with tears because it was exactly what I’d always wanted.
Lauren is the most talented, creative, enthusiastic, and positive person. I couldn’t have planned my wedding (or gotten through planning) without her. She took such a weight off of our shoulders by handling the tedious stuff so that we could just enjoy the process. On the day of, she made everything run so seamlessly so that we could just sit back and focus on what was important. She truly is such a joy to be around and also just the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. I am SO thankful we hired Lauren as our wedding planner – our day wouldn’t have been what it was without this beautiful soul being a part of our big day!

This Dream Team Helped Us Have Our Dream Wedding
We hired Lauren and Lion House two months before our wedding as our day of coordinator. We lucked out immensely. Just as we were running out of steam in the wedding planning process, Lauren helped us think through the remaining details of our day. She did an excellent job setting up our space and making sure that things went smoothly for us.Sent on 09/26/2019
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’t 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’s 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.
