Santa Cruz Wedding – Lauren+Tim


Lauren and Tim’s stunning wedding was held at the Stones and Flowers Retreat Center in Ben Lomond in the magnificent redwood forest. Lauren and I met back in 2006, we were studying Holistic Health and Psychology together in San Francisco and quickly became close. From the moment I met Tim, way back then, I knew they had something very special; such a deep connection and respect for one another, inspiring love. Flash forward 8 years, they got engaged while on a trip in Greece and when Lauren got in touch about documenting her special day, I was thrilled.

Lauren is the type of person who is extremely aware of the little things in life, the moments and connections, she is acutely observant of the seemingly serendipitous, she always has a way of seeing things others do not, it’s really quite beautiful. Tim is equally in-tune with the world around him, not to mention one of the most generous and kind human beings, something evident throughout their wedding day, especially during the speeches given by their friends and family where those exact qualities were pointed out time and time again.

Lauren and Tim’s love is not only inspiring, but also unique and genuine, being around them makes you feel more in love with life, friends, family and partners. Their wedding was gorgeous, beyond perfect, I mean they were married on Halloween and even had a homemade Maypole, need I say more? So very awesome. I am wildly happy for this stunning couple! So here’s to Lauren and Tim, congrats my friends, may your journey together continue to bring magic and adventure in the most unexpected of ways.
