For Love of Love is a boutique wedding planning and design studio providing full-service event planning and creative direction for weddings and special events.
We offer Full Planning & Event Design, Partial Planning, Month Of Management, and Event Design and Styling services domestically & worldwide from our storefront studio in Richmond, Virginia.
A desire to celebrate the magic of deep soul love was the inspiration behind For Love of Love. I began my wedding planning & design career in 2012 while living in New York City and have since planned events all over the United States and abroad.
I draw most of my inspiration from traveling, poetry, European architecture, femininity, foreign films, and world music. I love new languages, practice yoga and meditation daily, and enjoy being an active member of my local community.
I connect most with couples interested in creating unique and meaningful celebrations that seem natural and effortless. I believe intimacy is key, no matter how big your party is, and love is everything. This is your land, your laws, I just help translate your love into a celebration.
Full Planning & Design is comprehensive event planning and creative direction from your engagement to your wedding day. This all-inclusive service provides couples with strategic management of complex wedding logistics, a structured planning framework with a refined, approachable system for reaching deadlines, oversight of budget allocations & management of financial balances, appropriate vendor recommendations, and onsite coordination of wedding weekend events.
From the beginning, we guide you through selecting the perfect venue and then building your curated vendor team that works with your aesthetic & budget.
Along with logistical planning, we provide sophisticated creative direction & thoughtful onsite styling. Through conversations and imagery, we’ll narrow in on specific themes and repeating elements that inspire you to create a detailed design presentation which will guide us through floral planning, tabletop & event rental selections, stationery selections, lighting design, and personal touches.
Month Of Planning is best if you have planned most of your wedding, but want to let go of logistics in the final weeks leading up to your big day. We step in 30 days before your event to take over all communication with your vendors, lead a final walk-through at the venue, finalize your planning & day-of details, create your wedding weekend timeline, and make sure all of your logistics and plans are confirmed with your vendor team. With this package, we can provide appropriate vendor recommendations and answer any etiquette questions as needed. We also offer customized Partial Planning packages to meet your specific needs.
On wedding day our team oversees all logistical details as the point of contact for your vendors. We setup & style your personal decor and paper goods, help transition guests from event-to-event, acting as subhosts to you, and coordinate important events like the ceremony processional, family & wedding party photos, special reception dances, toasts, and the cake cutting. We will oversee your vendor breakdown at the end of the night, sending you home with your personal items & gifts.
We offer event design services for clients seeking creative direction & structure defining their wedding style.
We approach design with attention to quality & function, defining inspiration, color palettes, and aesthetic details early in planning to save resources and provide direction to all collaborative parties. We creatively direct your event through select colors, mixed textures, intentional styling displays, and appropriate vendor collaborations that represent your style & vision.
Upon thoroughly understanding your goals, we build a comprehensive design presentation, visually breaking down each area of your wedding and listing out what elements are needed to translate our vision into event decor. Our presentation is shared with your vendor team to ensure alignment in your overall design & wedding vibe. This includes us communicating with your florist, stationery designer, rental team, lighting designer, and assisting with the selection of personal attire.
Lauren Hill is also available for freelance creative and styling campaigns, workshop design & planning, small business branding, and storytelling photoshoots.
Our team has planned weddings all over the United States, Europe, and Mexico. While planning a wedding or event abroad has its own unique challenges, we know how to make the planning process for a destination wedding effortless & enjoyable. We spend the time researching locations, local sources, and general area information beforehand so we can narrow down the right locations & vendors that make sense for your needs. I accompany you on site visits to explore the area and manage meetings with potential vendors, asking the right questions, researching the best places to recommend to your guests, and will get a sense of the environment for your wedding weekend so our team can be fully equipped to answer questions from your family & guests throughout your engagement regarding travel.
All services offered in the Full Planning package are included here, but with a few additions to help with the challenges of travel. With our global contacts and vendor relationships, we are equipped to plan your wedding anywhere in the world.
