Lauren was the best planner we could have asked for. She went above and beyond to make our day run seamlessly and helped us throughout the entire planning process. In the months leading up to the day, she helped us vet different vendors, and wa...
s also very responsive to our concerns about staying within budget.
Our day ran so smoothly, and Lauren never hesitated when I needed help getting dirt and twigs pulled out of my dress, unpacking all the glow sticks we forgot about as guests were hitting the dance floor, and making sure we stuck to our timeline despite some longer-than-expected speeches. She had existing relationships with all our vendors, which helped us tremendously when last-minute changes needed to be made (like renting heaters the day before!). We loved that Lauren was highly organized, and responsive to all our questions (big and small), but also was very down-to-earth, flexible, and sensitive to our budget. Most of all, Lauren was fun and easy-going, and a great person to spend your wedding day with. We cannot recommend her enough!

Lauren is the person you want on your team on your wedding day. She epitomizes what it means to be organized, empathetic, and flexible. There is no curveball Lauren can’t handle.
We started planning our wedding over two years ago and Lauren ...
has helped us navigate common things like vendor selection, picking out rentals, and of course flawless coordination of our vendors leading up to and on the day of our event. But where she really excels is in navigating the unexpected. Lauren helped fix some day of dress slips ups, navigate pushing back our wedding and vendor contracts a whole year because of COVID, completely rearrange seating charts the day before the wedding with some last minute cancels, and make changes in the ceremony flow as late as the rehearsal. There is nothing Lauren can’t handle, and she is a source of calm and always has a smile on her face as she does so.
Hiring Lauren was the best wedding planning decision we made. We are so grateful for her!

Do yourself a favor and hire her for your wedding!

To say we could not have had the wedding of our dreams without Lauren is an understatement. We are from New Jersey and Lauren helped us to plan our wine country wedding at The General’s Daughter in Sonoma. For almost a year leading up to our ...
wedding Lauren was available, helpful, kind and honest every step of the way. I met her on the day of our rehearsal and I could have burst into tears. We established such a great relationship while planning this day that I could never truly put into words just how much she meant to us and to this process. You cannot go wrong hiring Lauren to help you plan this day. We will forever be thankful to her.

I can't possibly put into words how thankful we are to have worked with Lauren for our wedding this past August. From the very beginning - we knew we were in great hands. My husband and I wanted to be somewhat "hands on" with the planning, but ...
also needed an expert to run things day of, provide general advice and to help us with finding/coordinating vendors. Lauren did that and SO much more. Communication with Lauren was a breeze - she was always extremely responsive via email, and able to chat on the phone whenever we had questions! We met in person for the first time to do our venue walk-through, and it felt as though she had known us for years.
Planning a wedding is stressful, but no matter what random small detail we came up with or had a question on - Lauren was either already on top of it, or knew exactly what we needed to do. She's extremely professional & organized and also knows tons of amazing vendors in the wedding industry, which helped us immensely when searching for who to use for flowers, rentals, signs, etc! She sent timely reminders & checklists to keep us on track, and to make sure all our vendors were coordinated & had all the information they needed.
Come wedding day, Lauren was everywhere we needed her, and made sure everything came together exactly as we had planned. She is INCREDIBLE both at her job and on a personal level. She's so friendly, thoughtful, supportive and just a general pleasure to be around. We would get married every year if it meant Lauren could be our planner. Seriously - shes that great.

Lauren was our planner for our June wedding at Cornerstone Sonoma. We cannot say enough good things about her! We truly felt like she was with us every step of the way during the planning process. Weddings are so stressful and Lauren was always...
there to answer our questions and give us advice (and she always responded to emails so quickly). She has great relationships with vendors in the Sonoma area and provided us with quotes from vendors that worked with our vision and budget. She is extremely easy to work with and has a very relaxed but extremely professional demeanor. I have a very type- A personality and was worried about turning everything over to someone on our big day. But Lauren exceeded our expectations! Our wedding day ran so smoothly and it was all thanks to her and her assistant. She was so calm the day of, which really helped me, and made sure every item (on my long list) was attended to and executed just the way we wanted. We didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day! We cannot recommend Lauren enough!

wedding planning process can be stressful, and Lauren really removed that for me. She has the perfect balance of letting her clients know when decisions need to be made while making it a FUN experience! I was so calm and relaxed throughout our wedding day because Lauren really set us up for success and took care of absolutely everything throughout our big day and leading up to it. My favorite thing about the way she handled our wedding day was when something in our timeline needed to be moved around (for example, dinner/speeches took a little bit longer than we had thought) Lauren discreetly came up to me and made the recommendation to instead do the cake cutting and bouquet toss one right after the other (slightly different than what we had planned on), leaving the rest of the evening free for dancing and ultimately working with our then-current timeline best. Her ability to think ahead on our wedding day to what needed to be (slightly) changed on timing made it so that our whole day was so seamless and I just got to sit back, relax and be truly present through the entire day. Last but certainly not least, she is actually one of the nicest people ever, and who doesn’t like working with nice people?

We can't say enough good things about working with Lauren Miller for our wedding--she is truly outstanding! We were in a difficult position when our wedding venue, Paradise Ridge, burned down in the Sonoma wildfires 33 days before our weddin...
g date. Despite her family being personally affected by the wildfires, Lauren went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding went off without a hitch.
When we first spoke with Lauren, we immediately knew we wanted to work with her. While our budget didn't allow for the complete package, we found that Lauren's day-of service included a lot more than most of the other local wedding planners and was more than sufficient for our needs. Lauren's experience and attention to detail were apparent from our first conversation and crucial throughout our entire planning process.
Lauren recommended vendors, secured quotes, and helped us decide where to spend and where we could save in planning our wedding. She was prompt in responding to emails and helped us maintain our sanity while we planned our wedding, which can at times feel like a second job.
In the 33 days after the fire and before our wedding, Lauren helped us completely re-plan the event. She met with us at the new venue, walked through again with the caterer, helped us find a last-minute lighting vendor, picked up candles that we had ordered and even let us store our wedding beer in her garage.
On our wedding day, she was even more invaluable. Lauren executed the day perfectly and we never had to worry about any aspect of the event. If there were any day-of complications, we still don't know about them. We could fully soak in the day and enjoy the celebration! Lauren coordinated everything from picking up sandwiches for the bridal party to eat before the wedding, ensuring the tables looked exactly how we wanted them to look, and at one point, pinned the bridal gown so it wouldn't drag on the floor. She perfectly navigated the family dynamics of two divorced sets of parents and made everyone feel comfortable during the rehearsal and photos. And, she even arranged for her assistant to pick up In-N-Out burgers to serve as a late-night snack at our reception!
We highly recommend having a wedding planner so on the day of your wedding you can stop worrying about the details and truly enjoy it. And, if you are looking to get married in wine country, you can't go wrong with Lauren Miller. She is simply the best.

ight after the Santa Rosa/Sonoma/Napa wildfires (venue was a block away from the evacuation zone - so imagine the panic) but Lauren stayed on top of communication with us to make sure everything was ready to go. Lauren made schematics of the wedding venue to make sure we knew where everything was going to be and made recommendations to help with the wedding flow, including tweaking the timeline to maximize efficiency. Her vendor list came in very handy as she's worked with so many vendors in the area and knew which reliable ones to suggest. As we booked Lauren two years in advance, she made extra efforts to touch bases with us multiple times throughout the planning process, including meeting us after contract finalization and again during the month-of site visit. We are so thankful Lauren was our coordinator as she made our big day effortless! I didn't worry about a single thing on our big day!

list and no personal contact whatsoever. Lauren was entirely different. When I first made an appointment for a phone consultation, she was prompt and called on the dot. I rushed through the list of what we were looking for, because anyone else I had talked to had made me feel rushed, and after I was finished, I asked her if she had any questions. She said "Yes, how did you and Horace meet?" I was taken aback, and immediately felt at ease, and told her about us. I felt like were having a civilized conversation and not making a business deal. I was able to open up and share with her what our concerns were, what we were looking for. She had suggestions right off the bat, without even booking her yet. We hired her, and were never disappointed in the least. We booked a "day of" planning package, but she helped us more than just the day of. She answered all of my random odd-ball questions on etiquette and what other couples normally do. She even recommended vendors, and accompanied us to florist and event rental appointments to help us. She is a dynamo of professionalism and personable-ness that you just don't see very often anymore. If you are looking for a planner, either day-of, or a full scale planner, you need not look any further than Lauren Miller Events. She made our day worry-free and easy, so we were able to enjoy every beautiful moment!! THANK YOU, LAUREN!! <3

e gave us a TON of time and attention - it felt perfect. She was beyond helpful. I was planning most of my wedding from a different state, and Lauren was incredibly kind, energetic, professional, flexible, and quickly responsive. She's super attentive to detail, very thorough, and knows EVERYTHING there is to know about every element of a wedding. Seriously, she answered all of my neurotic questions thoroughly and always made me feel supported. When it got closer to our actual wedding date, I also began to realize even more of her skills - she's incredibly organized, GREAT at liaising with different vendors (they all love her, too), and is super creative with a great design sense as well. She was integral to some of the paperwork designs, to designing the overall layout of the event, and really took over the entire day-of set up and made our venue look even better than I could've imagined.
The day of the wedding, she seamlessly worked behind the scenes to make sure our timeline (which she had detailed to the minute) flowed well and that everyone involved / in pictures / etc were where they needed to be. She floated around mostly unnoticed but also made sure to check in with me and my husband at just the right times to make sure we felt that everything was going well.
We got awesome feedback from other vendors who loved working with her, and are SO so happy we got to work with her. Like I said, I HIGHLY recommend Lauren. She is incredible, and you won't regret your decision!

ew up) - so you can imagine how challenging and stressful this whole experience could/should have been. On top of the challenges we faced with planning our wedding from across the country, we also had 250 people attend our wedding.
Lauren was flat-out incredible to work with. She is diligent, organized, and is a great communicator - not only with my wife and me, but also with our many vendors. Oh, and she was also very pleasant to work with and genuinely cares about you and your event. Just one example is how much attention and respect she had towards some of our unique religious needs which had an impact on the pre-ceremony, ceremony, post-ceremony, and reception.
Lauren's services were by far the best money we spent for any vendor that we dealt with - she definitely earns her money, which is also quite reasonable. My wife and I will forever be appreciative of her.
