Of her LAGUNA gown, Lauren said: “I found the dress at the last shop I was visiting before making a decision, and just knew it was the one! Between the long train and the boned ribbing, it was a perfect match. ”

Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?
How Did He Put A Ring On It?
After a full day of golfing in Killarney, Ireland, on the 18th hole of the golf course, Ryan dropped to one knee when Lauren went to pick up her final golf ball at the very end of the round!
Where did you draw inspiration from?
Once Ryan found his suit we had a clear vision for the color palette and really just let our vendors take it from there! We leaned on the experts, knowing it would be incredible.
What made the wedding personal to you?
We just moved to London April 2022, so decided to get married in our hometown where we both grew up and our parents still live today. It was amazing to come back to CA since we are living abroad to get married where our love began! And being on a golf course since that’s where we got engaged as well.
What were you most nervous or excited about?
Most excited about saying our vows to each other and being able to see the finished result of all our hard work planning the day! Most nervous about…rain!
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress?
I found the dress at the last shop I was visiting before making a decision, and just knew it was the one! Between the long train and the boned ribbing, it was a perfect match.
