Hi guys, I'm taking you on a trip back down "Memory Lane" today with the beautiful wedding story of Lauren & Jonathan....their wedding was originally featured in January of last year and I'm so excited to share with you that their lovely day is being featured in the GORGEOUS new online issue of Smitten Magazine....and you can view it here....now let's check out the original post..and thanks so much to the lovely ladies over at Smitten for featuring Lauren & Jon's beautiful day....xoxo


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Welcome back to the wedding story of Lauren & Jonathan....their wedding was so special to me because I was given the opportunity to work with so many talented and sweet individuals and we literally came together and made it happen in two weeks!  When I got the call from Elizabeth Messina telling me that she was coming to Virginia to shoot her brother's wedding and asked if I could design the flowers....well, it took me all of two seconds to say YES....Lauren's mom had planned on being the "florist" for the wedding, so she was more than happy to give that assigment up!

After speakiing with Elizabeth, I called wedding planner and stylist, Courtney Spencer of Merriment Events and we immediately went into "planning mode"....we had two weeks to make it all happen and between the phone calls and emails with who I refer to as the "Dream Team" of vendors, we made Lauren & Jonathan's wedding day story truly "picture perfect".

Thanks to everyone for your time and your beautiful talents....we could not have done this without you and thanks to Lauren & Jonathan for letting us be a part of your special day.  Now let's check out all the magic of Lauren & Jonathan's wedding day and all the info on this wonderful group of wedding vendors that made it all happen...Enjoy!!   

The cute "Mr." and "Mrs." signs Jonathan & Lauren are holding were designed by my beautiful and talented friend Nana of Family Attic Shoppe.  Guys, please visit her site...her signs are too cute and such a perfect detail for your wedding or event.
