The May wedding of Lauren and Michael was a romantic’s dream-come-true. The wistful landscape of Amelia Island and the grounds of the Oyster Bay Yacht Club with its white beaches and moss-draped oak trees was the absolute perfect location to celebrate true love. The couple stood beneath a rustic, flower-draped arbor, the gorgeous florals by Shea Hopely Flowers, and promised one another forever among the laughter and tears of those who looked on. The bride wore a sleeveless, vintage-style gown by Claire La Faye, while her bridesmaids complemented her to perfection in gowns by Joanna August. The groom and his groomsmen were equally as handsome in suits by J.Crew. A reception followed where the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed gourmet southern fare in a variety of food stations sure to please every palate. The bride and groom danced the night away to the music of the live band they couldn’t have gone without —Last2Leave — before making a grand exit amidst cheers and the waving of glowing sparklers.
