Casey & Tyler, Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel



I have to say, I’m so sad writing this because it means this gorgeous wedding has come to end and the planning with Casey has come to wraps. I miss Casey SO much! She truly became a friend and I miss every email, text and call. We planned this wedding during the height of the pandemic and it was truly an emotional roller coaster because of all the unknowns. However, this bride toughed out every uncertainty and kept pushing through to have the wedding day of she and Tyler’s dreams! Not only does she have style, but she literally is like Shazam (stole this from someone that knows her because it’s SO true!). She knows EVERY song and literally created her entire playlist for her wedding and afterparty – and it was GOOD! Even ask Eric of Extreme DJ and Tyler Varnell! We would keep looking at each other like, dang, ok, this bride knows what’s up! Even the vendors couldn’t help but dance! And Tyler… the most patient, funny and kind Groom. I’m just waiting for my golf and Bitcoin lesson from him because I won’t take advice from my husband! 😉 But in all seriousness, this day was so special because it came to fruition, their guests traveled from all over the world and it was STUNNING. Casey wanted something modern yet still classic so years down the road when trends changed, it would still tug on her heart strings. Boy did it come to life! She, Lauren and Casey of Three Petals Design created a true experience for Casey & Tyler’s guests. Every single detail was thought out. I’m trying to think of how to describe it but all I can say is that it was sleek, sexy and cool with a California flair! I won’t even get into the afterparty, CLUB MUSTIN vibes, you’ll have to keep scrolling and see for yourself! I could go on and on… but I’ll save it and let you take a look at these GORGEOUS photos by Valorie Darling! Casey, I miss you so much and can’t thank you enough for my new Mezcal obsession, appreciating good music and literally being the best bride! You were truly made to be a bride! Cheers to you and Tyler and your new adventure together, we love you two!
