About Us

Our mission is to simplify and modernize the process of designing life’s events from start to finish, beginning with weddings.

Our process is simple. First, we provide access to thousands of design-focused photographs from the world's top photographers and wedding planners, all searchable and constantly updated to include the newest and best content. Second, we’ve created easy-to-use design board tools so Leaguers can organize their saved photos into a beautiful visual guide for their wedding. Third, we help Leaguers bring their boards to life with personal recommendations for the best products, rentals, and wedding vendors for their vision.

After meeting at Stanford Law School and starting careers as attorneys, our co-founders Lauren Geissler and Emily de Ayora left corporate law to build Downey Street Events, one of the premiere wedding planning and design firms in the San Francisco bay area. Over the course of 13 years planning and designing luxury weddings the pair mapped out their “dream product” for designing weddings. Welcome to Design League.
