We “met” Lauren and Justin on Instagram. We totally hit it off with these brooklynites and they decided to bring us along to film their destination wedding in Malibu!
Planning: At Last Planning
Photography: Wanderlust Creatives
Floral Design: Best Day Ever Floral Design
Venue: Cielo Farms
When Lauren told us that they rented out an old remodeled hotel in Malibu, my first course of action was looking this baby up. I mean it SOUNDS amazing but, obviously, I need visuals.
Native Hotel is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING inside and out! There’s the cutest little wild flower patch behind the hotel, gorgeous cacti and flowers in front and the most MAGICAL pink wall perfect for a first look!
Is that just not the COOLEST?!?! Well, in case you’re still not convinced, what if I told you their get away car was a light blue Thunderbird they drove from the first look up to Cielo Farms in?!?! THEN WILL YOU BE IMPRESSED????
These two are just the coolest. They live in Brooklyn and have been planning their destination wedding in gorgeous California. Justin runs a food blog, Bubs Grubs, and we plan on trying every place he suggests. We love us some foodies.
We had an over cast day in Malibu but it made for some of the most beautiful lighting. The bottom left screen shot is what the fine folks of Wanderlust Creatives called “the alien abduction” shot and I’ve laughed about that ever since. hahaha.
At Cielo the property is yours for the taking. We trekked all over for the greatest views of Malibu and of the new Mr and Mrs Simmons.
Lauren’s sister gave one of the most heartfelt speeches we’ve heard. I would paraphrase but you should just watch their teaser instead! Trust me, it’s good.
The crew partied into the night to finish out their BEST DAY EVER #bubsandhector AKA coolest kids on the block.
We can’t wait to go back to Cielo Farms again soon. Such a gorgeous, GORGEOUS, venue and what a great crew of people to work with! We had the best time ever. So, watch their wedding teaser and fall in love with their vision and with them!
