Lauren & Shawn were blessed to have one of the most spectacular days for their wedding! In the middle of a month full of rain, rain, and more rain, May 20, 2016 was absolutely beautiful. As we walked around the venue with these two during their site visit a week or two beforehand (in the POURING rain) and talked about all of the awesome locations available at Belmont Manor for photos, we were praying for sunshine on their day, and they got it! We started the day in Pasadena on the water where the bride got ready, and what a beautiful backdrop to begin that lovely day. Lauren had every detail perfect and incorporated her colors into everything from the bridesmaids’ monogrammed shirts in coral to the ring bearers’ adorable outfits in navy and khaki that mirrored the groom & groomsmen’s attire. And look at those navy converse chuck taylors the bride chose to go with her shorter dress for the reception! Love it. Ashley at Beauty in a Box did a stunning job with the bride & bridesmaids’ styling and everyone looked amazing.
Even more than the sophisticated elements and classic details of this gorgeous wedding and venue, what we really loved was the genuine heart these two have for each other and how excited they were about starting their lives together. The groom sent the bride a really thoughtful gift the morning of the wedding, and the bride’s face as she approaches her groom-to-be (and vice versa!) says it all. We are so excited for these two!! After a beautiful ceremony at St. Rita’s Church in Dundalk, MD, Belmont Manor’s lawn and tent offered a gorgeous reception space for a the party for this great couple and their family and friends. Kenny from One Rock Studio made a huge impression on us with his DJ and Emcee services — he was lively and professional, a huge asset to an already great party. And for these two the party is just beginning — blessings to Lauren & Shawn for a forever filled with so much joy. Congrats!
