They chose their favourite national park, Yosemite, for their celebration and hired 3 cabins for them and their 10 guests to really enjoy their time together leading up to the wedding. 

“The simplistic and family-centric vibe of our wedding made it quite unique,” Lauren told us, “I also wore all of my family heirlooms – I had my grandmother’s first wedding dress altered by my best friend, my headpiece was my great-grandmother’s necklace turned into a necklace and my sapphire necklace was my Mother-in-law’s.”

So it really simplified things for us.”
