I’ve known Lauren for nearly 8 years. She’s been to a million weddings with me as a second shooter and I’ve seen her grow from recent college graduate transplant from the mid-west to married yoga teacher and home owner ready to start a family of her own. Needless to say it was a BIG deal Lauren was getting married and just as big a deal that I got to photograph the big day.
Lauren met Andy at a street festival. She was surrounded by her many guy friends, yet by the end of the party Andy had it in him to go talk to her anyway. Pretty impressive I think! They’ve been inseparable ever since.
They both have really great circles of friends they’ve collected over the years and many of them made the trip to Cabo Surf in Mexico for the extended Weekend party. This wedding ranks right there with my best friend’s wedding as the most fun I’ve ever had at an event. And as always, it is the people more than anything that makes an event great. It was fun to come home to a few more friends on facebook at the end of it all.
Lauren and Andy (and Lauren’s Mom) worked really hard on pulling together a really relaxing event but at the same time having great attention to all the details such as lighting, seating and cute favor bags left in everyone’s hotel rooms. At the end they released beautiful Thai lanterns to mark the end of the wedding and start of their life together. It was quite dramatic and pretty.
