Lauren’s dress looked so beautiful backlit, and for the shoe lovers out there, yes those are Manolo Blahnik pumps.  :)

I love when Lynn Jovich (Clever Bumblebee Creations) does the flowers, because she makes everything look unique.  I love how the groomsmen’s boutonnieres were slightly different from each other.

The flower girl wisely took a nap on the way to the church….such a cutie.

Before heading over the the Colony Club, Lauren & Phil made a pit stop at Lafayette Coney Island.  I applaud the courage of anyone willing to eat a chili dog in a wedding dress.  :)

I really liked Lauren & Phil’s unique take on a guestbook.  They had a book full of little envelopes and each guest could write on a blank card and put it inside.  Simple and striking.
