Meet Lauren

wedding planning partner & guest experience designer

based out of Seattle, Washington



"She has a get-it-done style with a laidback demeanor and easy smile.”

– Amy


I created Flying Anchor Events in 2016 with the intention to provide a kick ass service for couples looking to break and bend the rules when it comes to their wedding.

Before joining the Seattle wedding and events industry, I was a psychology nerd working in early childhood education management. I tend to joke that my time spent with young children prepared me to be successful in the wedding industry. The honest truth, is that IT TOTALLY DID!


Working with young children and first-time parents taught me how to bring humor, creativity, patience, and flexibility into tough and sensitive situations. These are the qualities & skills that I have adapted and applied to my role in the wedding industry.

I get fired up incorporating small, personal details with elements of surprise and delight into wedding day designs and guest experiences. Give me all the hidden dinos, Harry Potter touches, sprinkled in puns, and surprise ceremony locations. The sky is the limit and I can't wait to discover what we can create together!


“She is detail oriented, pro-active, calm, and dependable.” - Eri
