Conversations with the Inspiring LaPorchae Thompson

Today we’d like to introduce you to LaPorchae Thompson.

LaPorchae, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I graduated from The University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Biological Sciences. After graduation, I attended nursing school at Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University. I currently work as a Registered Nurse, but my passion for planning events started to blossom almost seven years ago when I started planning my own wedding.

After planning our own wedding seven years ago, my husband (Myricks (Jake) Thompson) and I decided to open an Event Planning business about two years ago. I am the lead event planner and designer, while my husband runs the day-to-day operations of the business. We now find joy in helping others create Lasting Moments as they celebrate important milestones of their own. We desire to help guide our clients through the intricate details of planning their event while giving them the opportunity to be a guest at their own party!!!!

Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely not been a smooth road opening an event planning business. I sometimes look at more established event planners and think that I will never be a premier event planner here in ATL. Then, I say to myself, if they can do it, I definitely can do it too.

The Bible says that “your gifts will make room for you and put you before great men.” I truly trust and believe that. I know that God is making room for me and I will be one of Atlanta’s premier event planners!!!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into Lasting Moments Events & Consulting story. Tell us more about it.
Lasting Moments sole purpose is to meet the needs of its clients, personalizing each event to their unique taste. We truly love curating events artistically saturated with the essence of our clients.

A great Event Planner is a person who can take charge and plan the details of an event from start to finish. This service will yield a stress-free experience and the true feeling of being a guest on the week of your event.

At Lasting Moments, we believe in Your Day, Your Vision, Your Style.

Who do you look up to? How have they inspired you?
Women planners such as Lemiga & Elly B are planners that I admire here in Atlanta. Their style is upscale & chic. I just inspire to be like them one day.
