Mission Inn Wedding | Matt + Lauren
Lauren and Matt were hoping for a relaxed and romantic wedding day. The Mission Inn wedding venue was just what they were looking for surrounded by grand cypress trees, covered in hanging Spanish moss and a beautiful view of Lake Harris.
It was very important to them for their first look to be natural and in-the-moment. We shot this intimate moment on a bridge with Lauren walking up to Matt.
They decided on an outdoor ceremony under the shade of a mighty cypress tree and with a view of Lake Harris. For a guest book, all in attendance signed the couple’s Love Letter, the letter “T”, to commemorate Matt and Lauren’s new life together. Lauren wore a stunning white, mermaid-style gown with a lace overlay from Calvet Couture Bridal. Her attendants were in shades of slate blue and blush pink chiffon gowns.
The reception, held at Mission Inn’s Marina del Rey, has a casual, rustic feel to it. The tables are decorated with shimmering candles, floral centerpieces with splashes of the blue and pink and a cake pop favor box for each guest. Their band, which Matt plays the djembe drum with, is “chill and soulful”. “Love was in the air” as Matt and Lauren and their guests danced. The night ends with their guests ushering them out to a sparkler exit.
