Married // Lauren & John // Newport Beach

This day was so gorgeous and joyful, start to finish. Lauren and John (or Lo and JJ, as they are known to their loved ones) were such fun to be around! They decided to have their wedding close to Lauren’s grandparents’ house in Big Canyon, at a park that she frequented as a kid. They held a laid back Sunday afternoon picnic reception full of games, great BBQ, and creative touches. We topped off the day with a perfect beach sunset! I absolutely loved this wedding and had so much fun getting to know Lauren and John and their sweet families. Here are some (or many) favorites!
So special – Lauren’s father and John’s father teamed up to perform the wedding ceremony!
Awesome tidbit – this is the car that Lauren’s mom took to the hospital when she was in labor!
Such a stunning bride. I absolutely loved her chalcedony ring!
