Hello hello! Lauren here, to tell you a bit about Jillian. So, you know how sometimes you meet someone and it's like "wait, what? where did she come from?" because they are so awesome? That's how I felt the first time I met Jillian, and for a moment I will pretend to be her and tell you all about her...
When I moved to Chicago from San Diego, I ticked off all the boxes (and I love a good detailed list). Downtown corporate event planning job, picked a Lincoln Park apartment, and learned the grid system. But I wanted more!! After meeting Lauren, I knew LK Events was the place for me and had an opportunity to assist at my first wedding held at Morgan Manufacturing. It is still one of my favorite and most memorable celebrations to date! My first job that morning was to be sure the wedding party got out the door, and onto the bus for the ceremony on time. Well, the bus didn't show up! Utilizing my years of event experience and trusty wedding binder, I contacted the transportation company, and we realized they were just one block too far over. The ceremony went off without a hitch, our wonderful clients were married, and my passion for weddings was affirmed. I love making sure things work perfectly for our couples, no matter what it takes!
It should come as no surprise that I like a good challenge, really. I love running, especially marathons, and am working toward becoming a Six Star Finisher (editor's note: Lauren definitely had to look this concept up). Though I will probably always be a California girl at heart, especially December-April-ish, I love everything living in Chicago has to offer! There also is not a cult favorite Trader Joe's treat I haven't tried, and I could probably draw out to scale the layout of the Clybourn Avenue location. However, you will never find me sipping two buck chuck - much like Bridget I prefer a New Zealand Sauvy B while I catch up with my Bravo favorites - RHONY, RHOBH, and Vanderpump Rules.
I can't wait to work with you to create a thoughtful and creative plan to celebrate your wedding, and you can rest easy knowing that I have it all under control!
