Lauren O'Shaughnessy  |  Partner

Lauren's passion for event planning began at a young age, growing up in a family where gatherings and parties were central to her upbringing. Always believing that every event deserves an attention to detail to make it stand apart from any other party, she was able to foray this passion into a career. Her professional experience began while working at a major financial corporation, where she planned many tradeshows and company wide sales meetings throughout the country. Prior to Bellafare, she worked for one of the top event planning veterans where she coordinated weddings, corporate, and social events. Lauren has worked with groups as large as 1000 and as small as 10, which led to relationships with some of the most prestigious venues and vendors throughout New York City and beyond.
