COORDINATING UNIQUELY SPECIAL EVENTS AND WEDDINGS
We LOVED working with you and felt that we were in the best hands that day. You did such a great job with all the details and have the best demeanour to work with when under stress. Thank you SO much!
I just want to thank you for everything that day, if I haven't done so already. You rocked my world!!!

Lauren, you truly have a gift. You kept the whole wedding party and guests together, organized, happy, handled a list of a million big and little things with kindness, gentle firmness and made everyone feel right at home. You kept us in just the spots we all needed to be to have the whole day and evening move along flawlessly. If there were any glitches, I sure couldn't tell. You are a phenomenal hostess Lauren. Thinking about your position is actually quite mind boggling and I am so grateful S+A found you.
Thank you with all my heart for being such a kind, caring, organized and loving hand, as you guided us around and in between all the different moments of this very special day. You are such a treasure Lauren :)
Everything was absolutely PERFECT and we loved every minute of our special day! Our friends and family keep telling us how fun and beautiful the wedding and reception were! Thank you for all of your help, support and friendship over the last year of planning! There is no way we could have executed such an amazing event without you! It wasn't always easy with changing budgets... long distance vendors... my "type A-ness" :), but you pulled it off and exceeded our expectations!

Where did "Ryder Sloan Events" come from? We get this question a lot and the answer is: Before I was married, my name was Lauren Ryder Sloan. Ryder was my grandmother's maiden name and Sloan was my maiden name. I started the company while dating the man I knew I'd marry (which would mean I'd lose these names,) so naming my company after family is a way of honoring my past. Something I find so important to do as a Southern gal!
