We don't do status quo. We do it our own way. Well, to be more specific, we help you do it your own way.  For us, the done-before box doesn't exist, and we'll never get tired of making you and all your people say, "Wow." 

If you're looking for type-a, over-the-top event planning that looks as good as it feels... for a company that gets you, gets it, and wants to make it last... for innovative ideas that leave your guests wishing the party never has to end...

You're in the right place.


We offer Complete Planning which encompasses all aspects of your event; planning, design, and execution. Engaging our team before making decisions allows us to guide you to the best choices for your style and budget as we tackle milestone decisions together. We provide you with a concrete, personalized, and actionable timeline and manage the nuances of your event via our cloud-based planning dashboard. Constant communication through unlimited meetings and correspondence allows us to become partners in this wonderful process together.

This service is ideal for someone who wants to trust a professional but enjoys the process and working together to ensure a personalized event. You are looking for someone to provide the time, assurance and experience.

Getting the opportunity to collaborate with companies on styled shoots and familiarization trips is a joy; whether the goal is portfolio expansion, editorial content, or product development or just getting your business in front of the right clientele can make a world of difference.

This is a great service if you feel like your venue or product isn't being seen by the right crowd. We'd love to show you off.

We work with professionals in an array of fields from planning, photography, hotels and venues to assist in elevating their businesses and our event community. We enjoy exploring topics such as the technical BTS of the business, social media outreach, business branding, and team evaluations for current companies and start-ups. Hourly consulting is a great way to explore this service though we are also happy to come on board on a more formal schedule as well.

Looking to level up and reach that luxury status?
Lost in the sea of vendors and don't know how to stand out?

“With Grit and Grace, YOU DON'T HAVE TO COMPROMISE for a planner that excels in either design or logistics. Laura is Type A when it comes to both! And each event is so unique and intentionally designed.”

— Lisa Ziesing, Abby Jiu Photography


“Laura is exceptional, that’s all there is to it. It sounds like hyperbole (but it’s not!), but we couldn’t have done it without her, and would hire her again in an instant."

From helping to distill your vision with the right words and adjectives that actually bring the idea to life, to leveraging her expertise in style and design to thoughtfully guide everything from overall direction to tiny details....

- Carly, Bride Summer '23

“Of all of the decisions I made surrounding my wedding, choosing Laura was the best one.

The time, attention, support and creative genius she provided was invaluable. I never felt stressed, pushed, or overwhelmed because I knew I had the absolute best teammate and partner in the planning and design process.

- Allie Henkels, Bride October 2023

“With Laura. You don't have to COMPROMISE for a planner who excels in either design or logistics.

Laura is Type A when it comes to both! What I like about them most, though, is each event is so unique and intentionally designed."
