From the beautiful people we worked with to the gorgeous pieces we captured, this Union Market summer wedding reception was a dream. Photographed at Union Market, we envisioned a summer citrus inspired theme and Lauren from Lauren Pulver Events did that so perfectly. Fun fact, Lauren and I went to college together and knew each other before we both started working in the wedding industry. I think it helps that we are both named Lauren and I absolutely loved working with her on this beautiful shoot – it holds a special place in my heart. I knew this vision was going to come to life so beautifully. With her vision and the help of all the amazing vendors we were able to create some magic.

Venue: Union Market Mission Viejo

Invitations by @jensimpsondesign were simple and sophisticated giving the shoot an elegant touch.
We wanted to express happiness-the ultimate feeling you should have on your big day- with touches of colors that we love. We absolutely adore the simplicity of white and the elegance that it brings with neutrals, but color has had a spot on our hearts lately and it was so fun to use touches of citrus colors as inspiration for next wedding season. We accented the beautiful tablescapes with real pieces of oranges, lemons and grapefruits. Lauren herself dehydrated oranges and lemons to hang as a beautiful backdrop for our gorgeous bride.
The bouquets were designed with perfection by @floralsbyjenny. They made for such beautiful centerpieces and helped encompass the vision we had.
The cake was created by @simplysweetcakery and we had so much fun designing the orange and grapefruit accents that matched the modern details designed on the cake.
Choosing special desserts and drinks for your big day can help bring together the day so perfectly. These churros added just the right amount of sweetness. Also, these have got to be the best churros I have ever tasted by @loccasocial and paired so well with the bubble tea. Such a unique and creative idea to add something different to your wedding day. The drinks were created and designed by @drysociety_mv and were as tasty as they were pretty. I hope this Union Market summer wedding reception shoot was able to give you some inspiration for your future wedding!
