**Lauren and Alan**

Lauren is one of my closest friends who I love and adore….I call her my most accidentally funny friend, she cracks me up at every turn with her all her quirks.  She and Alan have been together a little longer than me and the hubs have….so we have been able to share alot of our dating highs and lows together, and keep each other sane in the process!!

I had the pleasure of helping her plan and coordinate her wedding over Memorial Day weekend at the Ritz in Washington D.C. (special props to the staff at the Ritz who really had to step it up in making sure the day went smoothly, since I had duties to fufill as a bridesmaid as well!!).  We spent the last 10 months putting this grand soiree together and she really put special thought into every little detail of her wedding.  She wanted to keep it elegant and upscale, and was really excited about her neutral color palette of ivory and black with accents of pale pinks and peaches.

Thanks to my hubby, I have a few sneak peak pics to post, while I eagerly wait for her photog to send me some of their proofs!  So now, without further ado:

 

Her ever-elegant escort card table:

 

Her very sweet and touching memory table:

 

Her GORGEOUS aisle pieces that also did double duty as the centerpieces.  The pinspotting really added that extra oomph!

 

The flowergirls were dressed in adorable ivory dresses with black sashes, to contrast perfectly with the bridesmaids’ black dresses.  They held their pomanders like they were ever so delicate, I loved it!

 

The newleyweds….they exuded happiness as they strolled back down the aisle!!  Can you see the the “Where’s Waldo” picture of my head in the pic?

 

The gorgeous cake…they even had their monogram on the front of the cake designed into the fondant.  I think the hubs may have gotten too excited about the open bar, because this is the only picture we got of the reception….so part two will have to wait for the pro pics!

 

Lauren and Alan: I can’t think of two people who are better suited for one another, the balance you guys find in each other is amazing and inspiring.  You two are some of the most welcoming and warm people I know and I am so lucky to call you both our friends!  Hope you had an unforgettable time in Tahiti!!!
