This wedding reminds me of just how much I love the laid back feel of California weddings and just how gorgeous in general, the Golden State is. Ryon:Lockhart photographers were on hand to capture all the romantic details like the sweet and simple floral arrangements and the beyond beautiful bird themed table numbers. And there’s so much more to swoon over in the full gallery of images!

From Ryon:LockhartWe were fortunate enough to be flown out from NY to CA to photograph this beautiful wedding weekend! Lauren and Matt are two incredibly loving people full of warm hugs and laughter and their wedding was nothing short of just that. We began our day getting ready at the gorgeous Hotel Sofitel. Lauren has such an incredible group of women in her life and it was so fun to watch them all interact and capture all the love and excitement in the room!

The Portola Valley Community Center is such a beautiful place to host a wedding! Super spacious and clean with trees as far as the eye can see. Lauren and Matt had a hand in just about every aspect of their wedding and their hard work and keen sense of  ‘laid back California style’ paid off!  The theme of the day was Rustic Romance and everything from the flowers to the cake to the ceremony were just perfect. Thank you so very much to Lauren and Matt and their families for including us in the weekend.  Your warm demeanor and genuine love and kindness remind us of what we love most about our job.
