Matt+Lauren Married

Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club Wedding


Matt & Lauren, two good friends of mine, tied the knot at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club This venue was not only breathtaking but a large enough spot for these two social butterflies to be able to entertain all their friends & family, because let me tell you- they have ALOT.  To say these two are loved by many is an understatement. People flew from out of state to come share this special day with them. I tell you this because it is the best way I know how to describe these two ,       incredibly loved

Matt and Lauren briefly met through a mutual friend back in 2009. The two lost touch after Matt transferred to UC Santa Barbara while Lauren studied at Cal State Long Beach. After college, Matt moved back down to Orange County. While out with friends in early 2012, they ran into each other. After talking throughout the night Matt nervously asked Lauren out to dinner and she surprisingly said yes. Little did they know this would be their last first date ever. After dating for two and a half years Matt knew that he was ready to marry Lauren.

On a warm & sunny day in Santa Barbara, Matt & Lauren invited all of their closest friends & family to celebrate their big day with them. It was a day full of love, champagne and promises. It was a day full of tears & laughter. Their wedding had such a vibrant & lively crowd (which you will see when scrolling down at these photos) which truly depicts the type of friends & family, they surround themselves with.

 It was such a joy to be a part of their wedding day!
