stoles gave the bridal party a striking organic touch. The couple’s twist on the traditional white tiered cake expressed artistic flair and again accented their color palette. The ceremony was officiated by a dear friend who delivered a truly profound sermon that spoke to Mike and Lauren’s admiration for each other. The couple said their vows silhouetted by the light of a beautiful gold chandelier and a picturesque flower wall, an exceptional twist on the traditional flower arch. The entire room basked in the abundance of love radiating from the alter. Mike & Lauren’s comfortably elegant style shined during the reception where friends and fathers gave lighthearted yet moving toasts to honor the cheerful newlyweds. Exposed wooden beams, fabric-swagged barrels, and

Capiz shell chandeliers transformed the dinner tent into a polished setting. Thanks to a request from the father of the bride, an additional cigar tent was set up for post ceremony festivities. In honor of Lauren’s favorite drink, a champagne tower was available for guests to enjoy during the reception. All of these magical touches culminated into an evening of love and laughter to be remembered and treasured forever. Celebrating this occasion amidst the place where their romance began added special passion and sparkle. The joyous affair was topped off with dancing into the late evening, a splendid way to commemorate the years of happiness to come.
