New England Luxury wedding Planning and event design

Behind the Scenes


I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and planning beauty wherever I go.

Hopeless romantic, lover of timeless celebrations, and all of the wonderful couples I have the opportunity of working with

I am so excited you are here! I am the principal planner, designer and owner of L.Cole Event + Design, a planning and design firm for the design focused couple looking to plan their dream celebration! With the true belief that you need to gain experience and expertise to be an expert at anything you do, I have worked in all aspects of the hospitality industry. With a focus on the boutique wedding planning experience, I strive to utilize my expertise to plan and execute timeless celebrations all while providing an entirely stress free wedding planning experience. 

Having started in the luxury wedding and event industry eight years ago, I have become more enamored with the process, the magical celebrations and wonderful clients. I have been fortunate enough to have worked in all aspects of the wedding industry, from high end catering, luxury event planning to an award winning rental company. My family’s picturesque historic property and wedding venue, is where my true passion for entertaining blossomed. Leading me to earn a degree in hospitality specializing in wedding and event management.

Growing up in Coastal Connecticut and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, I adore every aspect of what New England has to offer. I currently reside in the seaside town of Padanaram, Massachusetts. In my free time, I look for inspirational ideas that I can incorporate into my work by exploring new places with my husband and our black lab, Tug. I so look forward to meeting you!
