We’re thrilled to share that Lauren and Joshua’s Monarch Beach Resort wedding weekend was featured on Inside Weddings Spring 2018 Issue! This classic elegance meets modern contemporary wedding was truly a stunning event with details at every corner. Keep on reading to see an how Inside Wedding describe these two’s perfect day.
Just after sunset, in accordance to Jewish custom, the bride walked down the aisle with her parents at her side. She stunned onlookers in a gown with long illusion sleeves and three-dimensional floral details. A treasured sapphire ring of her grandmother was her “something blue.” Lauren and Josh exchanged vows underneath a lush chuppah filled with white blooms, featuring the tallit from the father of the groom’s bar mitzvah. The couple decided to forgo a full bridal party, instead choosing to have Lauren’s sister serve as matron of honor while Josh’s brother was the best man. “It was so intimate and magical,” affirms the bride
The reception blended classic elegance with contemporary playfulness. Guests found their seating assignments on a large wall created by Revelry Event Designers that had every guest’s name inside a different colored heart. This matched the backdrop of neon lights behind the band and complemented the graffiti-style dance floor that read “Josh loves Lauren.” Meanwhile, the dinner space was awash with ivory – from the roses suspended overhead to the luxurious seating in a variety of styles. No two corners of the room looked alike: there were circle, serpentine, and square tables each with a different centerpiece. Elements of the arrangements included candles, hydrangeas, and orchids – all in a vanilla hue. Instead of using linens, the bride and groom got creative with the tablescapes. The circular tables had flowers below, in addition to the centerpieces on top.
After a rousing performance by the live band, a DJ kept revelers dancing until 2:30 a.m. Lauren changed into a silver flapper-inspired frock to fit the festive mood as everyone got their groove on with some glowing props.
