It’s Spotlight Day! Where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding venues and vendors, and the stories behind their companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce Lauren of Encore Event Company.
When people ask “what do you do”, how do you answer?
Encore Event Company becomes your wedding fairy godmother and will hold your hand from start to finish during the wedding planning process. Already planned more of your special day but starting to feel overwhelmed as the date gets closer? No problem, Encore is here to save the day with custom packages as small as a day of coordinator to release the stress from you and your family.
What did you do before this?
Lauren was an elementary school teacher.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
2010 – I started planning weddings and events for friends and family and fell in love!
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
Seeing the look on a couple’s face during a room reveal is the best part of our job. We still cry seeing brides walk down the aisle to their best friend and forever.
What motivates you to do this every day?
Being able to help a couple or client bring their vision to life and working on something different every day drives us to be creative and come up with something new. There are some amazing vendors in the Florida market and we LOVE being able to work alongside these fantastic professionals.
How did you decide on the name of your company?
Everyone loves a good Encore. When you are at a concert or an event that you don’t want to end. We want to help our clients create such an amazing event their guests are left wanting and Encore!
What is important for clients to know about your company before they book you?
Though we have pre-set packages we are willing and able to create custom packages for all event types. Don’t be scared the word custom doesn’t mean breaking the bank.
We are a fun team to work with, there won’t be a boring meeting or venue walkthrough with us by your side!
What types of events do you specialize in?
Weddings tend to book our calendar the most but we love working on fundraisers and charity events.
What does your most popular package include?
Our most popular package is the Month of Coordinating, 30 days prior to your special day you get to hand over your contacts, planning binder, and details, and we will tie up all the loose ends and ensure your special day runs smoothly from the rehearsal to the cleanup and load out of your big day!
Tell us venues you enjoy working at and why.
Cypress Creek Farmhouse though a new venue and beginning to book clients has been an absolute pleasure to work with from the start. Tay is trusting, creative and fun to work with. We cannot wait to see the magic that happens in that beautiful barn.
Winter Park Farmer’s Market is a blank canvas that can be turned into any style event while staying on budget. The staff is friendly and the venue is beautiful.
Here is what some previous couples had to say…
“Encore Event Company is the best of the best! Knowing I had a team behind me, setting up the reception for my big day, knowing I can trust them was a huge weight off my shoulders! I’m your typical OCD bride and I couldn’t be happier with their outcome! They did an amazing job! I would highly recommend their services for your big day or any special event!
Thank you all so much for helping make my special day so special! You guys rock!!!!!” – Bethany, Winter Club
“Thank you so much Lauren from Encore Event Company. You really made my daughter’s wedding a success. It’s not easy to place such an important event into someone else hands. From the beginning you made us feel comfortable and confident. I highly recommend Encore Event Company – I can’t say it enough how nice it was to be able to really enjoy my daughter’s wedding without worrying about anything, and I did enjoy every minute of it.
Thank you again – you were AWESOME!” – Kathy, Casa Feliz
“Lauren was the coordinator for my wedding in December. I could have not been more pleased! I can be a control freak and she totally calmed me down and reminded me of what was important. If there were issues I didn’t even know about it until after. she is THE BEST! an easy 12 out of 10 stars if possible.” – Kelly, Ever After Farms
