REAL LOVE | LAUREN + CHRIS
Sandy escape wedding
This LoversLand couple is giving us all the feels! Hand-in-hand with hubby Chris and radiating in her "Nicco" gown by Alexandra Grecco, these lovebirds are serving us a classic, clean and effortless look. Together, they graced the sandy beaches of Turks & Caicos for an intimate and scenic ceremony.
Family and friends completed the dream, all dressed in white, perfectly accentuating their tropical arrangements. Keep scrolling for some fun Q&A and more stunning photos of Lauren and Chris’ picturesque day!
WE MET…“on Tinder!! I always feel a bit bashful admitting that, but it really is a modern romance. I think though, that Tinder served as a way to meet, but after an initial meeting it was obvious how much our backgrounds were in such parallel and that really brought us close together quickly. We both grew up in Toronto and I went to the all-girl sister high school to his. We went to similar universities, had an amazing amount of mutual friends and oddly enough even our dads had worked together over the years… but despite these parallels, we'd never actually crossed paths. After the first date, the connection was almost immediate and both knew that it was something special - a relationship worth focusing on and investing in.”
IN 10 YEARS WE WON’T FORGET…“The whole week leading up was special in that we got to spend quality and fun-filled time with our closest friends and family in one of our favourite places of all time (Turks and Caicos). Being able to extend the festivities beyond the day of the wedding was really special and unique. With a destination wedding, it is somewhat hard to anticipate how many guests will end up joining, but ultimately we were blown away by the support and will always remember being surrounded by so much love and having the absolutely best time.”
ONE WORD. MY DRESS MADE ME FEEL…“Effortless. This is the exact dress I didn’t even know I was looking for until I put it on and I fell in love with its absolute dead-simple elegance. It was the most perfect choice for my Caribbean wedding because it has such a beautiful flow that let me both twirl in heels and walk barefoot in the sand.”
SHOPPING TIPS FOR LL BRIDES…“Enjoy the process and don’t get hung up on dresses that don’t work. I didn’t really know what I was looking for but found a dream, so I think that also being open to trying on a number of different silhouettes and fabrics is important. And also listen to the suggestions of the amazing stylist you’re working with! I wouldn’t have even noticed this dress until Celeste suggested I try it on.”
Happy forever Lauren + Chris!!! xo.
