The weeks and days leading up to this wedding, myself and all the vendors were keeping a close eye on the weather. It was forecast to rain but in Southern California, you never know! The morning of the wedding it was gray with on and off drizzle, and everyone was crossing every finger and toe, hoping it would stay dry for their outdoor ceremony and reception!

Lauren and Todd met online, with his proclamation of love for Costco being the deciding factor for Lauren to message him (I totally understand this, as my fiancee’s proclamation of love for Game of Thrones is what prompted me to message him). They got married at the beautiful Ole Hanson Beach Club in San Clemente

Lauren and all her gorgeous bridesmaids aka sisters!

I was told this groosman was a foot model in college…?

After getting ready, we all headed to the venue (armed with clear umbrellas for the drizzle, and just in case!)

PSA: Prepare yourself for one of the top cutest first looks ever >>

Todd’s reaction!! I just can’t!! :’)

After the most adorable first look ever, we head out to do some couple’s photos

Those coats and clear umbrellas? TOTALLY UNNECESSARY as the sun came out to present us with the most gorgeous, beachside, rooftop wedding ceremony!


after an absolute dream ceremony, we went inside for the reception. PS donut. wall.


Are you really a groom if you don’t get attacked, picked up, and thrown into the air by your best friends?

Congratulations Lauren & Todd! May you have the best time running through the aisles of Costco eating samples, forever 🙂
