My name is Lauren Gertz and I currently live in Boston. I have always loved Event and Wedding Planning since I was little. I worked in Newport Rhode Island for a few years doing Event Planning and am now a full time Event Planner in the Seaport in Boston. What I love most about the industry is the fact every day is always different and I never stop learning. However, I wanted to learn even more not only about the industry, but also about the business side. Eventually I would like to open up my own company once I have more experience and dedicate it to my best friend who would’ve partnered with me. So far this program has taught me so much in regard to not only the logistics, but also the entrepreneurship steps I must take. As of right now, I have a few brides in both September and October who want all different types of décor for their fall weddings. One of the weddings in October wants a theme of burgundy, gold, and beautiful décor. They are interested in utilizing pumpkins and foliage for some of their details with a medium sized guest count, an outdoor ceremony, and an indoor reception.
