Elizabeth Burgi: I knew their wedding was going to be gorgeous because they hired DeNeitra from Savvy Events . They chose a stunning ombre purple theme. All of the bridesmaids wore different shades of purple and chose their own style of dress. Lauren’s Lazaro dress reminded me of a modern-day princess and she added her own personal touch by wearing a purple jeweled broach on the side. Michael and his groomsmen looked sharp in their navy blue suits.
Marriott overlooking stunning views of Marina Del Rey. To carry on the theme of the day, each guest was given an ombre purple program. Lauren and Michael stood in front of a beautiful living garden with green moss and flowers. As they said their vows to each other, there wasn’t a dry eye in the group and, after they kissed and were pronounced husband and wife, they jumped the broom.
Shades of purple
The escort cards were written in calligraphy and placed on a moss frame with a stunning flower adorning the top. The sign-in table had a beautiful painting with the names of the couple and their wedding date. Each dining table had gorgeous purple linens with watercolor menus and all the flowers were different shades of purple.
From one bride to another
