French Inspired Country Club Wedding

Lauren & Emanuel

When Lauren first reached out to us and said that she and her fiancé already knew our work, we were delighted to hear that they had attended one of our clients weddings as guests! Though she and Emanuel live in New York City, they planned to wed in her family’s hometown, Virginia Beach. From the moment we set foot in the church to meet Lauren, Emanuel, and her parents for a whirlwind weekend of site visits and a creative planning session, we knew we were smitten with all of them. What a treat to get to know, love, and serve this family. Lauren loves all things French! While we weren’t planning a wedding in the gardens of Versailles, we did take inspiration from the color palette of the era of Marie Antoinette and loosely incorporate a modern take on that aesthetic for this grand fête. In the words of M.A. herself, “let them eat cake!”
