This month, The Yacht Club at Marina Shores welcomed a new Assistant Event Manager to the team, Lauren Windham. Lauren came to us after finishing a three month internship with local wedding and event planner, Holly Coriell of Just Dandy Events. She realized her passion for wedding planning after planning her own in February of 2016 and her matron of honor’s baby shower in May. She’s been in love with it ever since! Lauren will be working with all our couples to organize their planning, act as a liaison with our vendors and personal oversee rehearsals and ceremonies held at The Yacht Club.

If you ask her what her favorite part of a wedding is, she’ll say it’s the cake (okay, and maybe the vows, too!). She also LOVES fluffing brides’ dresses for pictures. A few more fun things about Lauren: she is obsessed with Kate Spade, who she likes to say is her spirit animal. She loves Michael Buble and the color pink. Her “theme” for her own wedding was “Best Day Ever” and she loves finding items with that phrase on it. Oh, and her favorite topping on her hamburger is mac n’ cheese and BBQ potato chips (it’s the “Greg Brady” burger at Jack Brown’s in Harrisonburg- and now Norfolk- a favorite spot of her sorority during her time at JMU)!

We are pleased to welcome Lauren to the team and can’t wait for each of you to meet her.
