Retro and glamorous, Lauren and Theodore brought their favorite date nights to life at their wedding by including unique and special details to the theme. Think disco balls, champagne towers, decorative record players, and the perfect photographer, San Luis Obispo Alexandra Wallace Photography, to set the mood. I had the pleasure of interviewing the bride about the big day.

Their Love Story

"I initially met Ted, during his interview to join my team. We worked together for a year and became great friends! After several years at my initial company I decided to move onto a new opportunity. It wasn't until my going away party that Ted asked me out on a date. Full of shock, as our relationship was moving on from colleagues to dating... I said yes to the date. Fast forward five years later, we built a foundation of respect, friendship, love and now colleagues again at our current organization! Our love for adventure, surprise and motivating each other to reach our goals is why we choose to spend the rest of our lives together. He is my best friend, my biggest supporter and partner in crime."

The Inspiration

"Our wedding theme was Retro glam. We love putting on a record every night, cooking and listening to Elton John. We drink espresso martinis and old fashions and putting on a classic movie. We love the 60's & 70's and the old Hollywood vibe. All of this inspired us to lean into our retro glam look and feel!"

Color Palette

"Black, white, beige, pops of gold, burgundy and dusty rose."

The Details

"We loved having several intimate moments with each other throughout the night! From popping and spraying champagne right after our ceremony, to the champagne tower, our guest book table which comprised a record player and records for our guest to sign, the custom cocktails, napkins and stir sticks, to cutting the cake and lighting up the dance floor (literally) with glow wands and amazing music to having a sneak peak of our reception room and having a secret first Dance with just Ted and I. All of it was absolutely perfect! Seeing everything that I worked and designed come to life, was magical."

Knowing what you know now... what advice would you have for other brides planing their wedding?

"Live in the moment, don't worry about the small stuff. This time is for you and your partner, no one else!"

What was the most challenging part about planning your wedding?

"Creating the timeline - we didn't want it so packed that we missed being in the moment with everyone. It took allot of time to create a balanced timeline."
