Flying Anchor Event Design

Flying Anchor Event Design - a Seattle-based wedding planning and coordination company - believes a spectacular wedding adventure can be created through client education, guest experience, and strong interpersonal relationships. We plan HARD in the planning process, and play a little too, so that you and your partner can walk into your wedding day with confidence ready to make some awesome promises to each other and party with your guests until you drop. If you're ready to create a kick ass dance party with some non-traditional flair and pull it all off disguised as a wedding, let's talk! We totally want to meet you and create possibilities together.

Meet Lauren - Boss Babe & Planning Partner

I created Flying Anchor Event Design to share my passion for planning and coordinating weddings for clients like you! My mission is to provide you with an extraordinary experience, from the start of planning all the way to your send off on the night of your 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!

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 that I now bring to you before, during, and after your wedding day.

Small, personal details and surprise elements truly inspire me and I love designing a plan where we can incorporate them throughout your wedding day. I'm talking about dinos, Harry Potter, puns, and surprise ceremony locations. The sky is the limit and I can't wait to discover what we can create together!

  • A major goal I want to achieve in my lifetime is to become a sommelier.
  • My business name was inspired by a tattoo I have on my back.
