Meet Lauren Sanford Smith
It has been a dream come true to own a business with my sister and serve our clients together since 2011. I still pinch myself every now and then and thank God for this opportunity. I can truly say the IT2 ladies are the most caring, passionate, and talented group of women I have been beyond privileged to lead and work with. Every bride and client feels like family to us and we are never taking this dream job and team for granted!
I’m originally from the Atlanta area and graduated from the University of Georgia - Go Dawgs! I am so grateful for my husband, Paul, who supports my dreams, my adorable daughter who always keeps me laughing, and my son who give the best snuggles in the world!
I love helping brides keep the main thing, the main thing: getting married to the man of their dreams! I find so much joy in taking stress and tasks off my clients shoulders and allowing them time to focus on what happens after the wedding day, there is a whole life ahead to plan and prepare for in addition to the wedding day. I selfishly love the design process and can’t wait to get to that point in the planning process with my clients. I am creative, yet at the same time I can also focus on logistics, and I enjoy making brides feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I collaborate well with my entire team, creating a seamless experience for every client.
Fun Fact: I have a degree in Equine Animal Science - horses are magical and I love them! Bring on the farm life!
Wedding Day Must-Haves: Starbucks, of course! I will appear cool, calm, and collected on the outside.. but just know on the inside I’m bouncing off the walls with all the caffeine to make it to your beautiful grand exit!
