Deborah Doke Lavender Lion Events

Hi, I'm Deborah.  I started Lavender Lion Events with you in mind because your experience while planning your event is just as important as the actual celebration.  I am Ty's bride and the mom of two.  I enjoy pink champagne (An Affair to Remember, anyone?) and watching comedy sketches with my hubby.


Deborah's experience with elaborate events started in the catering industry, servicing large-scale social and corporate events at the Century Link Center in Omaha, NE.  She graduated from Grace University with a degree in Intercultural Communications, which included a term studying abroad in Europe gaining a broader worldview, cross-cultural experiences, and amazing design inspiration.  She then joined the team at where she learned the ins and outs of event production from the best designers and event planners in the country.   She has full production and day-of coordination experience for events in over 35 cities including New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and closer to home in Denver, Chicago, and Omaha.

Deborah Doke Lavender Lion Events

Hi, I'm Laura.  I joined the team because I love coming up with unique designs and polishing the details to take decor from "nice" to "absolutely AMAZING."  I am Joe's bride, the mom of three grown-up kids, and grandma to three awesome grandkids.  I enjoy being with my family, competitively showing my dog, and riding my horse.


Laura has a degree in Interior Design from Denver Women's College with an array of design and decorating experience from weddings, fashion shows, and non-profit events.

Her care and concern for the smallest of details in each event coupled with her 20+ years of design experience makes her a valuable member of the team.  Truth-be-told, we can't actually afford her level of expertise, and we're so grateful to have her.  She is excited to perfect the design details in your event!
