Details, Details, Details!

That's the driving force behind Four 13 designs! I am detail obsessed, a perfectionist by fault, who loves being a small part of my clients' big day. Selfishly I love that the first impression a wedding guest gets of the overall wedding design is through the wedding invitation.  It's a small detail in most weddings, but I like to believe it's the invitation that makes the first statement and the wedding day stationery that makes a finishing statement. And if that statement doesn't compliment your wedding aesthetic it may just be . . . dare I say it . . . a wrong statement! 

That's where Four 13 Designs comes in! With almost 20 years in design, and experience as a wedding planner, I have a refined sense of design and a sense for how that manifests itself into the wedding industry. I find it important to understand your style and vision for your wedding day; not just your invitations ideas. With this insight into your dream wedding, I can seamlessly weave your invitations and other stationery items into the overall design aesthetic, enhancing the vision you've created with your florals, lighting, venues, etc.

So if you have a vision for your wedding, I'd love to hear about it! Contact me here.

Meet Lauren

Hi y'all! I'm Lauren. Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet! I'm the face and creative brain behind Four 13 Designs! I'm an architect turned graphic designer. And a southerner who got lost in a love for the outdoors and landed in the mountains of Colorado over 13 years ago! 

I love to create. I love to host dinner parties. And I love anything outside, especially when I get to share it with my two favorites: my husband, Chad, and hilarious little daughter, Riley.

If I'm not creating, party planning, or playing outside with my fam, you'll find me passionately watching my alma mater (Virginia Tech) play football! Go Hokies! 

But above all, I'm a believer in Christ; saved by the grace of God. And because of this I named my business after a verse that I feel has defined my life:   "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me" - Phil 4:13  

4 Fun Facts

 1. I'm a shorty. Proudly standing at only 5 ft tall :)

2. I don't like coffee...GASP! I know I'm odd, but I do love a good hot chai latte!

3. I love running! It's my therapy.

4. I have never owned a car in this century. And I love that! Yay '90s!!!
