About Lisa

Lisa grew up with a mother who was an event planner/coordinator before that was a defined title. She learned from her mother what an honor it was to be involved in the lives of people who trusted you with their special events. While working at Laurens Academy, she has been responsible for events such as Grandparents’ Day, Prom, and Graduation. She has also done many weddings, receptions, anniversary celebrations and holiday parties for family and friends. She enjoys creative out of the box ideas and likes to help clients to think beyond the cookie cutter plans they see on social media. She likes to encourage them to focus on creating an atmosphere that they will enjoy, not just decorating a venue. Understanding the client’s vision and helping to create an event that is better than they could have ever imagined is her goal. Lisa and her husband live in Laurens with their cat and turtle. They have two grown children who are married, and a new grandson.

About Laura

Laura  has always loved creative design and organization. Her ability to address even the smallest detail is critical to the planning process. She too has spent many years working with her best friend, Madi and her mom doing events for Laurens Academy as well as family and friends. She has also worked to plan and implement fundraisers and large conferences. During events, Laura sees and is able to fend off potential problems before they arise. She is attentive to the needs of vendors and makes sure things are handled as the client wishes. Her creative work in graphic design means she can assist with invitations, programs, or any other items the clients may desire. Laura, her husband and foster son live in Laurens with their two cats.

About Madi

Madi Verdin has grown up helping with proms, graduations, auctions, etc. with her mom, Lisa. She learned from a young age that serving others and seeing things from someone else’s perspective can be a rewarding challenge. She loves to decorate and uses her creative sense to help clients focus in on their event’s style and feel. Her ability to connect with clients and to see when they are anxious and to provide reassurance is invaluable during the entire process. Madi lives in Mountville with her husband, new son and two dogs. Monumental Events has allowed her to share her creative talents while doing her primary job of being a godly mother and wife.
