What Is An Event Coordinator?

An event coordinator can mean the difference between going to a party and managing a massive, complex social event. Nobody wants to manage a team of vendors (each with their own agenda) plus a room full of guests & wedding party members. Let your own personal coordinator take care of the details so you can show up and actually enjoy your wedding day!

Abi May - Wedding Coordinator & Photographer

Abi May

Hi, I’m Abi!  As a wedding coordinator I love to create genuine connections and cultivate trust to ensure that your vision is brought to life for your special day! My goal is to work with every couple through open communication to weave together your timeline with precision, an attention to detail, and with your top priorities in mind. This allows me to provide my couples with a level of security that your day is in good hands. I work with your vendors, friends, and family to ensure everyone is on the same page and will be working in unison.

Your wedding day is meant to be enjoyed and focused on each other – not the details. My job is to take as much pressure off of you and make sure your wedding day is everything, you’d dream it would be. I’d love to get a chance to work with you!

Manuel & Lauren Barajas - Wedding Coordinator & Photographer

Lauren Barajas

Hi! I’m Lauren Barajas! Born in California but grownup as midwesterner. I’m married to the love of my life and mama to our two young kiddos.  We currently live in the suburbs of Chicago in a sweet older part of town.  I’ve been a wedding photographer/coordinator for 15 years now and love all things wedding! In my free time you can fine me enjoying the great outdoors with my family, crocheting, reading, or going for long walks. My favorite place to be is at the ocean but I love being home too. :) I would love to be a part of your special day in anyway!
