Lauren and her bridesmaids convened in the Presidential Suite for final preparations. With anticipation in the air, Salon Fusion‘s talented hair and makeup artists began their work, enhancing their natural beauty to perfection.


You’re The Bride arrived to ensure that every detail was perfect. From distributing bouquets to setting up an easel for Viviano Flower Shop.  Jazmine and Tracie orchestrated the final touches seamlessly including lots of personal touches created and designed by the couple from their around the world centerpieces that were built into vintage suitcases. 

At the appointed time, the wedding party gathered in the serene waterfall garden, a picturesque backdrop for the initial meet and photo session. Lauren, stunning in her gown, walked through the garden. The photo session captured the joy and excitement of the day, providing lasting memories for the couple and their loved ones.

Lauren and Derek exchanged their vows before the priest and their loved ones, sealing their commitment to each other in a heartfelt ceremony.

After the guests finished with cocktail hours, they were ushered into the Atrium where they were greeted by the breathtaking sight of soaring ceilings. Sunlight streamed through the towering windows, illuminating the space with a warm, golden radiance. Each corner boasted intricately carved pillars, reminiscent of a bygone era, their graceful designs adding an air of timeless elegance to the surroundings.
