Welcome to The Golden Touch: Official Blog of Gold Dust Galas!

I figured it's about time to get the new blog up and running, so here we are! Welcome to the first post of the new blog for the newly(ish) rebranded Gold Dust Galas!

In case we haven't met yet, my name is Lauren Grzymala, and I'm the owner and sole planner here at Gold Dust Galas. I found my passion in wedding planning and design, and after refining my talent and earning my certification through The Wedding Planning Institute, I started this business in 2017 under the name Grzymala Galas.

In September 2019, my husband and I relocated back to our hometown in York County, PA, and my business followed. Not even 6 months later, my world took a sharp pivot. Not only had the global pandemic just started, but my husband and I also welcomed our first child into the world - a son who was born with half a heart. With the uncertainty of everything going on in our lives and in the world, I chose to step back from Gold Dust Galas looking forward to the days when life could return to normal.

In early 2021, our perfectly healthy baby girl was born, and thus completed our family. Though the pandemic still raged on, I had hope that I would soon be able to return to doing what I loved, and quickly got to work on rejuvenating the business I loved so dearly and worked so hard for. After the birth of my 2 children, 3 separate hospital stays with my son (which included 2 open-heart surgeries and a heart catheterization), and the world dealing with a virus that just won't quit, I decided it was time for a new look and a new (easier-to-spell) name. And so Grzymala Galas became Gold Dust Galas!

No matter which name I've operated under, my clients have come to know me for my personal approach, making personal connections, and unparalleled organization and attention to detail. The stories behind what my clients are celebrating and why are important to me, and I do everything in my power to allow them to celebrate those moments to their fullest! And while I get hired as a professional, I most often leave my clients' events as a friend, even keeping up with their life celebrations - large and small - to this day!

When I'm not working a wedding, you can find me playing with my 2-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter, listening to True Crime podcasts, or drinking a Dunkin' iced latte!

I've been so fortunate to work with dozens of couples in planning and coordinating their special days since opening in 2017. I've been even more fortunate to have experienced such a warm, booming welcome back into the industry I love most, and I'm so beyond excited to work with my 2022 and 2023 couples for their most important moments!
