Sneak Peek: Lauren & Jrue’s Wedding Style!

LJ couple shot

Hi friends, it’s Katrina the new Marisa Nicole, Weddings & Events intern here!

Today I’m happy to give you all a sneak peek of one of the first weddings I’ve done with the Marisa Nicole team.  From the spectacular venue to the beautiful décor, I couldn’t get enough of Lauren Cheney and Jrue Holiday’s wedding.  My iPhone pictures don’t do this wedding justice, but I hope that it gives you a glimpse of the sweet details of this wonderful wedding!

Let’s start off with Lauren and Jrue – they are simply the best!  These two are the most down-to-earth people and anyone can tell that they’re in love from a mile away.  They made their wedding reflect their fun and charismatic personalities with just a touch of southern elegance.

LJ ceremony

Cypress Sea Cove in Malibu was the venue for this special day.  It was literally located on the ocean!  Need I say more?  The beautiful wooden cross at the front of the ceremony complimented the wooden chairs that sat their loved ones during their “I Do’s.”

LJ lounges

LJ coffee

After the ceremony, the bridal party and guests made their way over to cocktail hour on the other side of the venue. To grab a mask for snapshots at the photo booth or to grab espresso from the coffee station: that was the question!  If neither of those options appealed to one’s fancy, guests could always just sit back and relax in the custom-built lounge areas.

LJ tables

Prior to the family style dinner service, everyone had the opportunity to admire the beautiful table décor and flower arrangements.  The white lace runners set the stage for the gorgeous array of summertime flowers (compliments of the rather fantastic Enchanted Garden Floral Design) that brightened up these wooden dinner tables.

LJ lemonade

LJ pies

I have to say that my favorite parts of this wedding would be the uniquely designed lemonade stand and pie station.  From basil mint lemonade to strawberry rhubarb pie, these set-ups could cure anyone’s sweet tooth!  Let’s just say that wedding cake and champagne might be replaced with pie and lemonade as major wedding traditions very soon!

I hope that you enjoyed my sneak peek of this fabulous Malibu wedding.  Stay tuned for professional photographs from the wonderful team at Iris & Light, with full details, in an upcoming blog! Oh, and a special thanks to Andrew Abajian (our super talented cinematographer) for the top photo of the love birds.
