November 7th, what a wonderful day full of great memories for Lauren & Luke.  The day they said I do and made promises for a lifetime.  It was a very full day filled with so much emotion.  Lots of happy tears, laughter and a crazy fun dance party!  The details of the day were plentiful.  So many special touches and a fairy tale reception fit for a princess :)

The day was sure to be a success with all the great vendors lined up.  I was super excited to be working with all of them!  First thanks to my 2nd shooter Mike Tsai, always doing a smashing job!  Christine, Celebrations of Love, handling all the logistics and more. Be Chic Bride for lovely hair and makeup for the girlies! Olive media rocking the video (super love them~I photographed their wedding!!!!), Dan Meiners for the stunning florals, PATRICK LENTZ BAND~need I say more?   Well, I must mention the most incredible candy bar table decoration that I have EVER seen goes to Kristina Briseno!

I am going to let the photos do the talking :)  Lauren’s lovely dress and all the sparkles for the bridesmaids!!  Love love love the bridesmaids dresses all different but coordinating!
