Lauren & Kyle, Montage Laguna Beach



Lauren and Kyle had the most beautiful wedding day! Lauren was a bride with a clear vision and I had so much fun helping her bring it to life. It was an elegant design adorned with lush white florals and neutral tones that complimented well with the space and had her guests gushing the whole evening (and I’m sure well after!).

When we started the planning process in 2022, Lauren was pregnant with their sweet little girl, Charlotte. Being here for their wedding planning, and also her and Kyle welcoming their baby during the process was so special for me! Witnessing their love for not only each other, but their love as parents was beautiful. With the wedding being a destination, their turnout of guests was a true testament to just how amazing and cherished they are!

They recited their vows at the historic and gorgeous Mission Basilica in San Juan Capistrano and their cocktail and wedding reception took place at the lovely Montage, Laguna Beach. Let me tell you, this couple sure knows how to entertain! A gorgeous Southern California ocean view excited guests and they were wow’d by the wandering (twin!) violinists, Daniel and Cal Morris. And of course their reception was a non-stop dance party thanks to West Coast Music’s, Everyday People!

We had an incredible team of vendors that nailed every aspect of this beautiful day and I am so grateful for them! The oh so talented Garrett Richardson (a fellow Tennessean like me!) flew in to capture the love on camera. 618 Studios was incredible and worked their magic filming the day. Three Petals Designs (Casey) helped execute the beautiful florals and design not only to perfection, but also on a very short timeframe! Teamwork really does make the dream work!!

Congratulations again, Lauren and Kyle Kennedy! Wishing you a lifetime of love, laughs, and more gorgeous babies!
