It’s exactly how I envision my world…laid back elegance, surrounded by friends and family, stylish, unfussy, simple. With tacos. And margaritas.

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. Lauren wanted to have her grandfather marry them – it was so personal and sweet.

They decided on the venue at Red Horse Barn for the outdoor, rustic space and we turned it into a lovely organic setting fill 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 a fresh and natural environment.

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 night ended off right with old fashioned It’s-It ice cream sandwiches for dessert and lots and lots of hip dance moves.
