Star Struck: Lauren + Mark

College sweethearts, Lauren and Mark, wanted an intimate wedding that reflected their beginnings together. Lauren's parents' estate in Portola Valley was a natural fit for their fall wedding with it's lush gardens and stunning landscape. The couple exchanged "I do"s under a sprawling oak tree and setting sun. As an ode to their beginnings, the ceremony string group was comprised of college friends of the groom.

At Cornell, Mark majored in astronomy, so we created a spectacular clear dinner tent so guests could feel as if they were dining under the stars. Guests enjoyed an amazing evening of fine food and wine, while dancing the night away to the tunes of Pride & Joy.

My Favorite Detail? I'm a dog lover and a complete sucker for the color coordinated ribbon collar that Lauren's mom made for the dogs the day of the wedding. Aren't they the sweetest?
