Lauren and Brett
Fountain Valley School
August 21, 2010
I’ve been looking forward to this wedding all summer, because I knew it would be creative and cool. Lauren and Brett are the owners of the Modbo Gallery downtown, and you might recognize them from their engagement session earlier this summer. They included their artistic skills and stylish creativity in many ways on Saturday. They even hosted their own reception, by closing down the alley behind the art gallery and celebrating under the stars.Lauren and Brett scheduled lots of time for posed photos, and as a result, they have lots of gorgeous pictures of the two of them together. If you love these kinds of pictures as much as I do, please make sure to schedule lots of time on your own wedding day. You won’t regret it.
Congratulations, Lauren and Brett!
Lauren wore a birdcage veil with a peacock feather accent.
She wore a vintage, cocktail-length dress.
Brett and Lauren had a moment together in a private courtyard before the ceremony.
The Fountain Valley School chapel
The chapel was decorated in lime green with peacock feathers, along with a grand piano – the perfect touch for Lauren, who is a classical pianist.
Lauren’s bouquet was one of the coolest I’d ever seen. She made it out of heirloom brooches that were her relatives’.
The school’s art studio was unlocked, so we went inside, and Lauren and Brett climbed up on the tables!
They drove to the reception in an antique yellow Mustang.

This little girl was hilarious! While the band was on a break, she took over the microphone and sang the alphabet song to the entire crowd, while banging on the piano keys. After everyone applauded, she said, “For my next number…” I don’t know what she said next, because I was laughing too hard to hear it.
First dance under an almost full moon
The reception continued into the night, with the back alleys closed off for guests. A multimedia slideshow was projected onto the neighboring buildings. This particular image was also framed and displayed in the gallery. It is Brett’s illustration of one of my engagement portraits. Totally cool!
