Artifact Events Wedding – Lauren & Matt
Lauren & Matt are my kinds of people. They tell it like it is (in a sarcastically hilarious kind of way), kiss like they mean it, and don’t take the clichés of this crazy wedding world too seriously. At the same time, they rocked their Artifact Events wedding day as if the goal was to be published. I mean, Lauren’s Alice in Ivory dress alone had me swooning from the start of the day. They set up a schedule that reflected exactly what they wanted out of the day regardless of what others might have done in the past. They held onto tradition when it meant something and created their own when it made more sense. Not even a surprise flat tire on their limo could throw off these two. Because they committed to making a day that truly reflected the two of them, they spent most of the day together, had time to soak in the small moments, and made sure their guests were having just as much fun as they were throughout the entire day (I get hungry just thinking of the charcuterie spread before the ceremony!).
