We had the good fortune of connecting with Lauren Gibbs and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lauren, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
I am a parent!! I have three lovely little boys who are my whole world. I think one impact I want to share with my kiddos is following your dreams. Letting them figure out their passions and place in this world is and will always be hard, but hopefully they will be a little more courageous when it is their time to chase their dreams.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Colorado Native! My type of style that I go for is “Colorado Chic”. What you will experience from me is a relaxed, fun, and playful wedding day!! I have always strived to make others comfortable and confident, and that’s what my previous brides would tell you too! Let’s have a laugh and glammed up!!! I started right after beauty school knowing i didn’t want to be in a salon setting. After working with a few salon/spa’s doing bridal hair and makeup, I was hooked!!! Growing up with a family of entrepreneurs, I had to go out on my own!! There has been a lot of trial and error along the way, but working for myself and employing the best has been very rewarding. Knowing that bridal hair and makeup artists are a dime a dozen, I want my brides to know that I see you as my PEOPLE! I want you to look back on your wedding day with nothing but stress free AWESOMENESS.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Fire on the mountain! (Grateful Dead themed wing bar) Red Rocks Amphitheater Estes Park Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort Forest Room 5 (Coolest bar ever)

What could be better than your partner that believes in your dreams. Stefanie! My ride or die kind of friend. She has always been there to push me forward with my dreams!!! My close knit circle of friends, that I hold so dearly, have been there the whole time pushing me to be better everyday! I couldn’t do it without them!
