Real Wedding: Lauren & Caleb vol.2

Lauren + Caleb’s wedding day was one of the most thoughtful & special weddings I’ve been able to witness. Truly a celebration of joy and excitement while being surrounded by their closest family and friends.

The outdoor, rustic space was turned into a lovely organic setting overflowing with lots of burlap and lace! Large descanso tables, custom made burlap and lace table runners, gold rope candles, wood crates filled with beautiful flowers & greenery, balsa wood and gardenias and potted succulents created the fresh environment. The Floral Lab did it again with her incredible floral design. The gardenias were stunning and the way she incorporate balsa wood flowers was flawless!

Lauren and Caleb wanted great food and guests to truly enjoy the best party! Tamales, chips and salsa and various types of the most delicious Mexican tacos were served fresh from Jalisco’s Taco Cart while guests sipped on mason jars filled with margaritas and wood heart stir sticks. The stirrer sticks doubled as escort cards. Simple, chic and affordable!

The night ended off right with old fashioned It’s-It ice cream sandwiches for dessert and lots and lots of hip dance moves. The large lights over the dance floor were lovely!

Lauren + Caleb – Thank you. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and plan the most wonderful wedding day. I loved every step of the way and still have planning phone call withdrawals. : ) You two are so lovely and have such a wonderful support system made up of your wonderful family and friends. Enjoy your journey!

Love, A

    Hey do you have any more pictures of Laurens hair. I would love to do that hairstyle for my prom, but I would like to give the stylist a little more than one picture to work with. If you could send them to my email, that would be great. Thanks
