Lauren + Doug: Luxe All-Ivory Real Wedding by lunaphoto
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lauren and Doug’s La Jolla wedding was a picture of all things timeless, elegant, and sophisticated. The bride’s lacy Ulla-Maija Couture gown was the inspiration for the event design and from that, a monochromatic palette, dramatic floral elements, and cascade of luxe style elements unfolded.  The talented team of Paula and Michael at lunaphoto was in place to photograph what the couple deems ‘the most magical night of their lives,’ and the photos of the dreamy pair, epic architecture, and romantic candlelight are nothing less than magical. Soak up just a few of our favorite shots in this peek, but be sure to head over to the full gallery for more!

The bride and groom have known each other since they were children!  Of how they finally became an item, Lauren says, ‘Our families have always been friends, but our five year age diference left us with little in common growing up. Fast forward to a family cruise in 2009; I was a senior at the University of Texas and with us both in our 20s, that age gap wasn’t quite so considerable. We spent the trip dancing, laughing and talking about everything we had in common–most notably, our love for tomato basil soup and the Palladia channel.’

Uncharacteristic of Southern California, it ended up drizzling the morning of the wedding.  The outdoor ceremony had to be moved inside to the Elizabeth Capella.  Although it was plan B, the chapel was beautiful and felt intimate and close-knit.  Afterward, Lauren, Doug and their three hundred guests enjoyed a huge party in a Grand Del Mar ballroom.  Doug even got up on stage in a smoker jacket and serenaded his new wife with a cheesy 80’s love song. Endless thanks to lunaphoto for sharing and all the best to the newlyweds!
