Andrea + Taylor | Lazaro Wedding from Jim & Kelly Photography

Beautifully braided up-do, chocolate rose bridesmaids gowns and roof top nuptials that look like this couple is floating on cloud nine…I love that Andrea’s exquisite Lazaro gown is the perfect nod to this heavenly, soft and elegant affair!  Other delightful details not to miss, the pop of yellow on the tables provided by the ‘Spread the Love’ preserves (such a sweet party favor) or my favorite, the really cute kids throughout this wedding…so well dressed and clearly digging a simple pleasure all kids at weddings enjoy: drinking as much juice and soda pop out of fancy glasses as possible and playing dress-up for the day – Yes!

Andrea + Taylor | August 4, 2012 | Laguna Beach, CA

The Ceremony + Reception
We were married on the roof top of a Laguna Beach hotel, overlooking the beach. Our reception was at a Newport Coast Club house that included an open patio for dancing.

Andrea’s Dress Search

We decided to buy a house instead of having a large wedding and over a year to plan so I did not have a lot of time to pick out my dress.  Going into my first wedding dress store I thought I would end up with either a lacy dress or a full skirt.  The first dress I tried on was the one I ended up picking, due to the fact that the second time I tried it on and walked down towards the mirror it made me cry.

How Andrea Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Beautiful, comfortable, happy.

Why Andrea Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
My husband and I would like to have children ASAP but have some bills we need to pay off first.
