"My wedding dress was a custom design by Winnie Couture," shared the bride. "It had a fitted lace bodice, which let out into a chiffon mermaid bottom. I also had a clothing label from my deceased grandmother’s old clothing line sewn into my wedding gown. I’m still in love with it and my words don’t do it justice. The chest and straps had crystals. It was completely backless. I didn’t want to take away from the back of the dress so I wore my hair to show it off and chose to not to have a traditional veil."

"I wasn’t concerned about the particular types of flowers, but that I wanted all of the flowers to be white. I thought it would be beautiful against the black and gold decor," explained Lauren. Great choice!

"The reception decor was similar to the ceremony decor in being classic and elegant. We wanted to full the room with romance so we had a mixture of table linen in a cream color that varied in patterns. The centerpieces were various arrangements of white flowers, clear candle holders, gold candle holders and black candle hold-ers with cream candles. The bridal table cloth was black sequin and a white floral runner going down the center of the table. We have three high floral centerpieces on top of gold vases along with other various gold and clear candle holders and decor," shared Lauren.
