A few weekends ago, my mom, hubby and I all made the trek to Laguna Beach to witness the nuptials of my cousin Paul to his beautiful bride, Carol. Other than my own wedding, this was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings I have ever been to. It started off quite simple with drinks in the lobby of Seven-Degrees (an “idea lab”) leading to a beautiful ceremony. Once we finished hors d’oeuvre during the cocktail hour, we began dinner with a viewing of their rock-star-like wedding video (edited that day) and ended the night with a sparkler send off and the happy couple racing away in one of their two Lotuses. It was quite the magical evening, by any degree. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!

I loved the lighting, flowers and table settings.
In addition to the TVs throughout the reception, there were these little ornaments with tiny cameras in them, showcasing a slide show of the couple’s engagement photos.

The couple was given cakes modeled after their cars by their friends, but they also had their traditional wedding cake.
