Lauren and Joshua had a beautiful outdoor Monarch Beach Resort Wedding ceremony Featured in Inside Weddings. The couple knew they wanted a destination wedding, so Southern California looked to be the perfect location for the New Yorkers to tie the knot. International Event Company helped to put together an extravagant, yet personal, wedding weekend for the couple. The festivities started on Thursday, with a relaxed welcome party followed by a white-themed rehearsal dinner the next night that included carnival games, performers, and treats. Each day featured a new goodie bag of favors in the hotel rooms of the guests, which attendees thought were fun surprises.
Finally the main event arrived. 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. 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. We provided our White Suede Chair Cover and Cushion on Gold Legs.
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.
