We have one word to describe Lauren and Patrick’s Laguna Beach wedding: stunning! The Montage Laguna Beach is a special site for the couple, it’s the location of one of their first “real” dates, their proposal, and now their elegant, California-style wedding. Lauren and Patrick worked with Jeannie of Details Details to bring their vision to life and incorporated several elements honoring Lauren’s Chinese ancestry, including a tea ceremony, Zen garden inspired florals by Inviting Occasion, and savory treats from the famous dumpling restaurant Din Tai Fung. We are completely head-over-heels for Lauren’s Jenny Lee Couture gown! After looking high and low for her perfect dress with little success, Lauren worked with Jenny Lee to create her dream dress from scratch! The fabulous end result featured a deep v-back and seemingly endless layers of gorgeous silk organza rosettes—a few even hand-painted in the palest of blues. Every thoughtful detail (right down to the “sweet past, present, and future” cake toppers) has our heart skipping a beat—we know you’ll agree this is one of the most gorgeous weddings of the year! See all of the captivating images from Caroline Tran in the gallery!
