lead planner and designer

meet laura louise

Born and raised in Maryland, and will forever be a Maryland girl at heart. I relocated to Virginia in 2015 after graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park (GO TERPS). Now, I live in Northern Virginia with my husband, our 3 rescue pups and our baby boy.  

I am a Capricorn through and through, a die-hard Capitals fan, and an animal lover. Lush flowers, candles, cathedral veils and more flowers is my love language. Velvet and jewel tone obsessed.  Design elements are my jam and my favorite part of wedding planning. I love making my couples' dreams their reality, and go above and beyond to ensure that is exactly what happens.

The planning bug found me in college while planning my sorority's events, along with various corporate and charity events. I then began shadowing some of the best wedding planners in the industry, building my knowledge of the industry, and learning the ever-changing world that we call wedding planning. 

I'm known for my attention to detail, being at least three steps ahead of everyone else, and my timeless, elegant design style, no matter the time of year. I love putting my own unique twist on everything I put my hands on. I don't just plan an event, I create an experience, one you and your guests will remember for a lifetime!  


Hello, love! First name Laura, middle name Louise, and I'm so happy you're here! 

I 'll go first

When I'm not planning a wedding, you can find me teaching at a local dance studio. I've been a dancer my entire life, winner of multiple regional and national awards for both dance and choreography.  Dance is a passion of mine, and another outlet that allows me to be creative. I always choreograph routines in my head whenever I listen to music. I cannot control it!  Don't worry; although I would like to, I promise not to bust out dancing at your wedding!

Summer is my favorite season; and you better believe, I am always down for a trip to the beach. Let's be real, I would live there if I could. Nothing rejuvenates me more than sitting on the beach (ALL day), soaking up the sun with a drink in my hand, listening to the waves crash at the shore. I also love to snorkel and collect sea glass.

Lush, fresh flowers, warm candlelight and cathedral veils are my three FAVORITE things. Weddings are a celebration, and I believe every wedding is beautiful in its own way. I'm often asked, "What is your style?". I always say, "Timeless, with my twist".  Summer is my favorite season however, winter weddings are my absolute favorite. I was married in January 2020 at Stone Tower Winery, so maybe I am a tad biased; however, there is something about glistening snow, white fur wraps, bare, silhouette trees, warm candlelight and earth tones that just speak to me!

I LOVE the holidays!!  I love to decorate, and I am always determined to have the best decorated house on the court no matter the holiday. Halloween, hands down, is my favorite holiday.  I love doing anything and everything spooky; like haunted forests and corn mazes.  And Halloween decorations are my fav.  Christmas is a close second.  Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favorite things to do.  I cannot wait to experience the holidays as a family of three!
