Serendipity Garden Wedding : Lauren + Andrew

We’d been looking forward to this weekend’s Serendipity Garden wedding for over a year now; and for so many reasons, we know it’s one that we’ll never forget. We met Lauren and Andrew in Big Bear, California for their engagement session last year, and knew right away they were our kind of people. They are two of the sweetest, most adventurous people, and they are so much fun to be around! Their wedding was tucked in the hills of Oak Glen at a private oasis over nearly eight acres. Serene ponds, towering pines and nearly a thousand white roses made this venue absolutely magical.

Lauren and Andrew, it was striking to us how much love you have for your family and friends. Your caring and concern for other is like almost nothing we’ve seen before. We loved how you brought together the people that mean most to you to celebrate your perseverance through good and bad times. Thank you for the honor and privilege. From the bottom of our heart, thank you for trusting us with documenting one of the most important days of your life. We wish you nothing but the best that marriage has to offer.

The day began in the Beauty Cottage at Serendipity Garden Weddings. It was a gorgeous room with white walls, white bedding, and wide open windows…Lauren stole my heart with her Kate Spade wedding shoes…

…and who isn’t obsessed with the Jo Malone peony & blush suede perfume?! It’s divine.

Everyone swooned over her Blush Bridal Boutique Hayley Paige dress when we took it outside to hang it up…

After the initial shock of flipping through the book together, we got ready to do bridal party photos. The chandelier tunnel was jaw dropping…

The bridal party was a fun group of close family and friends…

With a threatening chance of rain right before the ceremony began, the skies cleared and the weather was perfect.

As guests looked towards the rose bushes, a horse and carriage descended with Lauren and her dad inside.

During the ceremony they did whats called a black and tan. The black beer was a Guiness and the white beer was a fat tire.
