Tell us about Laurie D'Anne Events + how long you've been in business!

Laurie: Laurie D'Anne Events is a full service, luxury design and event planning company. Laurie D'Anne Events was established in 2013. Over the past 10 years, I have been designing, planning and producing luxury weddings and celebrity events in the Nashville area and around the US. At Laurie D'Anne Events, we love to take our clients from concept to completion. We start by working with the client to capture the vision for the event. From there, we begin to build the event by producing custom design boards and CAD drawings, and by working with the caterers to build a custom menu. All of this establishes the foundation for the event. Once we have the foundation, we take the overall vision and continue the design to create a reality. We are always on site from the moment the first partner arrives until the last one leaves. It is not only our goal to produce creative, timeless events, but to value our partners. Without them, we would not be able to do what we love to do most, which is bringing a vision to life while creating a luxury experience all along the way! Our strong relationships in our partners in the industry is what makes anything possible. We produce all types of events including corporate, music industry, weddings and large scale social events. We would love to help you plan your next event!

How did you get started in weddings?

Laurie: Weddings feel like a natural thing for me. When I started in the industry back in 2007, I was the person on the team that truly enjoyed building relationships with the couples. Although we did all types of events, I was given and then requested by clients to plan the weddings.

What's the philosophy behind your company?

Laurie: At Laurie D'Anne Events, we believe that our clients are valuable. Each person is unique with unique styles and beliefs to what is most important to them. Although weddings are not the only type of events that we produce, we believe that weddings are very special. Weddings are a once in a lifetime event. We honor each client and the investment they are making by bringing the very best design and planning experience based on the investment. We believe by creating an experience, we will create a memory and in turn create friends. Our goal is for you to be a guest at your own party!

What are your strengths compared to others wedding planners?

Laurie: We have a unique way of bringing all things into balance, and by doing so, creating a wonderful experience. The way we experience an event is the way that we perceive it with our senses. Our designers focus on bringing into balance the things we see and hear, along with the things we touch and the wonderful food we taste. We focus on hearing you and creating an event that blends with who you are as a person.

What attracts couples to Laurie D'Anne Events?

Laurie: Brides that really want an expert to help them create an amazing wedding experience are the brides that are most attracted to us. We have clients that want to be very hands on and clients that are just too busy to hunt for the best vendor that may or may not be about creating her dream. Our brides love that we hear them and can help bring their vision to life. We will create a full design or can collaborate with them on a design. Either way, our brides know that they can trust us to bring the very best whether it is simple or elaborate. We also have many destination brides; they need someone they can trust from afar.

What is the most innovative aspect of wedding planning today?

Laurie: Communication, timeline, contact and payment conveniences! In today's world, everyone's plate is full. It is nice to be able to sign a contract and pay a retainer online all with a touch of a finger. We have software that will not only make those things easy, but will help the bride build a digital checklist. It's also a place to store wedding guest names and addresses so they can create that list months in advance and use it for invitations, guest seating, and more!

Is there anything else you'd like to share about Laurie D'Anne Events?

Laurie: People are important. Our goal is to value our clients the way that we want to be valued. Creating events is a way that we get to use our talents and make people happy, which in turn makes us happy and allows us to fulfill our purpose. If you are planning a wedding now or will be in a few months, we would love to have you over to our office in East Nashville to enjoy a lovely beverage and sweet eats!
