Lauren & Joe, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club



What a gorgeous day celebrating Mr. & Mrs. Xavier! I actually had the privilege of meeting Lauren and Joe when planning Lauren’s sister, Nicole’s wedding a few years back. It was so fun to be able to spend time with the family again and to see so many familiar faces on the wedding day. Lauren and Joe had such a clear vision of what they wanted their day to be like and I think it was just that and more. Not only was the black and white design executed perfectly (Florals by Jenny nailed the lush white florals!), but the overall atmosphere and ambiance was warm, fun and full of love. From the speeches alone, it was apparent that Lauren & Joe are genuine, caring and an authentic couple. My favorite tid-bids of the day would have to be the Father of the Bride speech, the late night Del Taco (the guests were in Heaven!) and the marble wrapped dance floor. It was truly a special day and we are so excited for Lauren & Joe’s future together. Love you two and wish you all the best!!!
