Owner + lead planner

lauren michelle christenson

With an inherent love for hospitality and exceptional customer service, the events industry found me. As a coastal Southern California native, my heart will always belong to the ocean, but my soul is fueled by a mix of my roots that include salty air and sea breeze, breathtaking mountain ranges and a dose of southern charm. 

I bring over a decade of experience, with knowledge from various aspects of the events world including catering, conference planning, interior design, live production and venue management. Inspired by nature's beauty, I often take on a minimalistic approach when considering design. Clients who come to me for my keen eye for detail, ability to remain calm in stressful situations and easygoing nature often leads to lifelong friendships.

When not planning exquisite events, I enjoy cooking, swimming, hiking, snowboarding, spending time with my fiance, Jordan, and finding the next greatest cocktail that invigorates all the senses. Gin, anyone?

Coastal elegance and mountainous views overlooking the pines are just the beginning for designing an elevated event. 

We've planned and orchestrated events at iconic locations such as Dodger Stadium and the Hollywood Bowl, luxury resorts such as The Ritz Carlton, BACARA Santa Barbara and Edgewood Tahoe Resort along with private residences to name a few.

southern CA + LAKE TAHOE

From the rugged-mystical Pacific Coast, misty beaches, emerald green river valleys, wooded mountains with waterfalls, wildlife-filled islands and endless flower fields, we've experienced this gorgeous area of our country first hand and would love to go back soon!

Offering a unique blend of natural beauty and urban sophistication, our team is prepared to stargaze or embrace the nightlife.


While the Charlotte metro area was home to Lauren for five years, she has friends and family throughout the southern states and is attuned to the ideals of southern hospitality. 

Throw in an affinity for southern comfort food and swanky jazz, blues or country music and we've got ourselves a party you won't soon forget. 

the carolinas

Warm waters, white sands, balmy breezes. Another destination we've traveled to, but have not formally planned in - yet!

We're ready to take on an intimate tropical affair, romantic beachfront ceremony or jungle inspired dance party. The natural foliage, bright blooms, and historical art centric cities are the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding.


Welcome to the land down under! While we have yet to plan a wedding or event in this 'nothing but postcard visuals' country, we do have friends and resources overseas and have visited a time or two.

We'd love to be part of dreaming up your perfect day - so long as we can come along!


2. Places we've been

Personal connections are instrumental in creating a meaningful and unique planning experience. We are here to listen to your ideas and vision, and then transform them into an event that showcases your personal style.

Education and guidance in decision-making is of utmost importance. We dedicate time and energy into building a trusting relationship so that we can execute deliverables seamlessly while enjoying the celebration alongside you. 

Embracing organic, sustainable materials aids in the magic of the design process. Let mother nature serve as your inspiration and your design be an extension of your venue.

Kindness matters. We are here to celebrate every love story and the differences that make us beautiful. We pledge to accept, respect and include clients, vendors and employees of all races, colors, religions, sexual orientation, gender identity, ancestry, or disability.
