There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, including my own, during Lauren + Carlo’s emotional and heartfelt wedding toasts. Tears from laughter, tears from joy and even a few tears of sadness for those who were so very desperately missed at this beautiful couple’s wedding. Lauren + Carlo have been planning their wedding for quite some time now, well over a year. Somehow, throughout all of the planning, selecting the colors and the flowers, finding the dress and perfecting all of the little details, they managed to keep in clear view what matters the most…each other. Their love and support for one another, as well as both for and from their friends and family, simply radiated throughout the reception room at the Westin all night long on that hot summer evening. A lot of laughs. A lot of tears. And a whole lot of love…I’m so happy for this incredible couple. I’ve known Lauren for a few years now and I’ve never seen her looking so gorgeous and so happy. Congrats you two!
