Lauren Mestas is a graduate of the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico; she is also a Certified Wedding Planner through the Association of Bridal Consultants. She got her start as a wedding coordinator almost 5 years ago, when an opportunity came available for Lauren to assist brides as a hotel catering manager; when she worked on her first wedding in March of 2012, she instantly fell in love & knew she’d found her place. Since this time, Lauren has worked on many different weddings, (and other events!), at 4 different venues in Albuquerque. She launched Just Lovely Wedding & Event Planning LLC in December 2014 as a way to continue to help those needing help with planning and coordinating their wedding days.
