Lauren + Chris had an elegant black-tie wedding at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ, full of romance, family heirlooms and thoughtful details. From Lauren's stunning Hayley Paige gown to the breathtaking florals, every moment of their big day was more beautiful than the next. Captured by one of our favorites, Jennifer Larsen Photography, their wedding photos are classics that will be cherished for years to come. Brides + Grooms, take note! This wedding is chock full of endless inspiration for your big day! 

From Jennifer: Lauren and Chris's wedding day was classic and beautiful! All of the carefully planned details created the most perfect celebration for these two on their big day. Lauren was a vision in her Hayley Paige gown, and the florals by Blue Jasmine were just mind-blowingly stunning! The bridal bouquet featured Lauren's favorite - white anemone flowers. The elaborate reception florals and garlands at the head table fit perfectly with the elegant decor of the venue.

Lauren's sweet and sentimental 'something old' was a beautiful handkerchief from her great grandmother - the only item she has of her great grandmother's that made it to this country from Cuba. Her necklace, an ID bar with her and Chris's names engraved on it, is a staple of her wardrobe that she wears daily, so of course she wouldn't go down the aisle without it.
