Before I met this bride and groom, I actually met the mother of the groom two years before at another one of our weddings and it was her calling me about helping in the planning for her son Owen's wedding to the woman of his dreams Lauren.
When I first met Lauren I knew she would be fun to work with and over the next 11 months it was a true honor and pleasure to work with her and her incredible future mother-in-law Hollie.
What made it fun was that Lauren was so laid back and easy going. She had a clear vision of what she wanted in her Fox Island wedding but just needed a way to take her vision she had in her head and translate that to reality.
Her vision was simple, beautiful and romantic and her colors of shades of pink, cream and blush and gray really reflected in the flowers, dresses and invitations.
For her flowers, we had Metropolitan Market create all of the personal flowers and then we ordered bulk flowers and then the Elegant Affairs staff went to work create magic.
Using cream and pink roses, curly willow and hydrangea in white and blush we transformed the three mason jars into a simple yet elegant centerpiece.
What I love most about working with couples is helping through the whole process from selecting a wedding date to helping to secure all of the vendors. I was over the moon when Lauren + Owen selected Melissa Kilner as their photographer. We first worked with Melissa just a few weeks after Lauren hired us and I knew she would be a perfect fit and she was.
We were introduced to a few new vendors and especially loved meeting DJ extraordinaire Stephen Morton who we ended up working with a few other weddings.
This July wedding was simply stunning from a gorgeous bride and her maids to the darling flower girl (the groom's daughter Dylan who we just fell in love with), to the grand entrance of the groom and his entourage off his step-father's yacht.
There were so many little touches we loved. From the margaritas to the food and cake everything was perfect for this amazing couple.
Congratulations Lauren + Owen!
