Happy first day of fall, you guys! We have the perfect wedding to share with you today – Lauren + Travis’ stunning fall celebration – captured by the lovely Katie Shuler Photography. L + T are high school sweethearts who grew up vacationing in Mammoth Lakes together. The Eastern Sierras is a special place to them, full of adventure and outdoor activities that they both adore. They knew that Mammoth would be the perfect location for them to say their I Dos, and we love that they exchanged vows at Forest Chapel, under a canopy of trees. So surreally beautiful!
Lauren shares, The part that made our wedding so special is that we picked a location we LOVED! Before we were even engaged, we dreamt about getting married at Forest Chapel and our dreams came true! Getting married in a place we loved made us feel so relaxed and comfortable on our wedding day.
Protea and dahlias pair quite nicely with textural goodness like astilbe, eucalyptus + queen anne’s lace, don’t you think? We’re pinning these beautiful bouquets for sure!
Another must-pin? Lauren’s floral appliqué BHLDN dress!
And what a good-looking bridal party! For the exact dress Lauren’s bridesmaids are wearing, be sure to stop by David’s Bridal, but we’re also rounding up a few more options within this color story for you to shop below!
Once I walked down the to the front stage where everyone's eyes were on Travis and me, I said, “Wait, I want to embrace the moment!” Travis and I turned around and waved and smiled at everyone who came to celebrate with us! This was one of my favorite moments, because we remembered to take the beauty in.
I would say to embrace every moment of the wedding planning process and especially the wedding day. There is so much work and planning that goes into a wedding so I wanted to enjoy it all. I tried to celebrate with all of our friends and family leading up to the wedding to keep the excitement going. Travis and I waited 10 years for our big day to come so we wanted to embrace it all!
