I was one month into starting my company when I received my first website submission from Hannah in New York City. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement, but to say that I was beyond grateful truly depicts how I felt that day. Moments later, I scheduled a call with my first potential wedding client and the conversation with Hannah could not have been better. Laurel Street Events had their first official booked client and was ready to get started! Even better, their wedding elopement would take place just one month later in San Diego, California. I knew that I had to design and source vendors that were in line with my client's vision. Thankfully, my years of working in fast paced, grueling, and problem-solving jobs helped me to make sure my first client's event was exactly what she wanted given the time constraints under which I was working.
The vision that Hannah had in mind was a boho-styled wedding set in the mountains. Luckily, I had Pinterest to help save the day, allowing Hannah and I to share mood boards to help me better understand her style and vision more clearly.
The day was beautiful. I scouted a place that I thought was in line with the picture that my client had painted for me. I went on a site-visit to Bailey's Palomar Resort, located in the tranquil Palomar Mountains an hour east of San Diego. The venue was tucked away in the woods and was the most perfect place for two people to share their day of love with each other. I knew it was exactly what they were looking for!
By using nature as my backdrop, I designed a private oasis for Hannah and Henry to enjoy their elopement. The beautiful couple exchanged vows in front of white drapes that hung from a tree branch, bringing tears to some of the vendors' eyes who felt so fortunate to witness this magical moment.
I invite you to scroll through the photos below to see the day that was captured magically by Kelly Wood Clark Photography. There wasn't a moment in that day that you didn't think to yourself "what a gorgeous and loving couple." I was so happy to have shared their elopement with them by creating scenes and a private oasis that they will forever share. Thank you Hannah and Henry for choosing LSE to be your style designers for your event. As my first client's, I will always remember and cherish Hannah + Henry's boho woodland elopement tucked away in the woods.
