We love hotel ZaZa – it’s all sorts of classy, but just a little bit funky. You know you’re staying in a pretty swank hotel suite when Coldplay was in it the night before. It was a fun, relaxing setting for all of Lauren’s bridal prep.
This was our first time shooting at Highland Park UMC. The exterior of the church is beautiful and the courtyard area is just perfect for pictures. Everything about Lauren & Eric’s wedding was very classy, but not too serious. Photographer Jenny Martell did a great job of playing off this vibe of Lauren & Eric’s wedding party. She took some stunning formal portraits, but mixed it up with lots of fun shots too. We loved the bridesmaids all under the Lauren’s veil.
The real party started back at Hotel ZaZa for the reception. Lauren & Eric seemed more quiet for most of the day, but we had a feeling we’d really get to see their personalities come out later that evening. Lauren’s uncle did all the floral – which was amazing: gorgeous, huge centerpieces of various cream and blush roses. After guests snacked on a fun buffet of delicious sliders, fried and other fun foods the dancing started . . . and it didn’t stop until Eric and Lauren left.
