When you love succulents as much as I do, weddings like this gorgeous Rocklege gem have a tendency to brighten your day. Brighten your day in a way that only sunny yellow bouquets filled with succulents can do. And when the bride is the oh-so-talented Lauren of Lauren Grace Weddings & Events and also happens to be as dedicated to succulents as you are, that’s a day brightening times ten. Together with her dapper beau and close friends and family, she crafted an affair that was pure lovely (here’s looking at you, cake table), complete with divine images from Vine & Light Photography. See so much more in the full gallery.
From Vine & Light Photography… Lauren did a wonderful job of incorporating vintage and modern elements to her day, with so many wonderful and on-trend details. This wedding is a great example of how to have seasonal details incorporated into your day in a way that is both classy and unique. I think you can see that best in their floral choices, the tall branches centerpieces, the succulent cactus favors, and the muted sage green, yellow and blush color palette.
Lauren has a background in event design and coordinating, as well as past experience working with a florist, so when it came to her wedding day, she did had a blast creating a unique vision to represent her and Blair. I love that Lauren’s friends and family came alongside the couple to help make her day unique. Her family baked most of the baked goods in the dessert bar, and one of her bridesmaids did the calligraphy for the menu and welcome window panes. Overall, their day was filled with personal touches, charming details, and loving family and friends. It was such a lovely day and such an honor to be there.
From the Bride… I wanted our wedding to represent both Blair and me through little details. I wanted everything to be personal; for example, our cakes were made by my aunts with some help from bakers I have a relationship with. All of my vendors were people I know through my business so it was like family. Our first look was on the water, where I spent hours playing as a child, just like Blair did too. It was so nice being able to share that moment with him before the wedding. Being able to hug and love on him before our busy day started was amazing.
I was very inspired by my flowers and succulents! I wanted green because it is my favorite color, but I didn’t want green flowers or greenery. Then I saw this gorgeous succulent bouquet online, and I was in love. Previously having worked at a florist (Amanda’s) made the flowers very important to me, and she executed everything exactly how I would have done it myself. There was so much love at our wedding; there were so many tears, hugs, and laughter. It was everything I could have asked for.
