Laura + Doug's Wedding at Malibou Lake Mountain Club

Ceremony and Reception:  Malibou Lake Mountain Club
Catering:  Monrose Catering
Hair/Makeup:  Emily Dawn Artistry
DJ: Music to go
Cake:  Bella Savour

The way I see it, the more personal a wedding is, the more meaningful it becomes.  Personalizing your wedding doesn’t necessarily require a lot of resources.  All you need to do is take a look around you and thnk about what makes you unique.  In a world of commercialized weddings, Laura and Doug were a throwback to the old school way of doing things, and that’s what I love most about them.  From the time we first met last year,  I could sense the warm nature in both of them. 

This wedding was full of personal touches, starting with location.  Doug had grown up around the lake, and it was great to hear all the stories that were told by his father and groomsmen.  It really made me realize how closely knit this entire group was, and it really showed.  All the little details were not overlooked, and these two really put some real thought into their planning.  The old soda bottles on the centerpieces were bottles that Doug had collected as a kid, the flowers were made Laura and Doug, and they got married with their closest friends and relatives surrounding them in a circle, which included chalk drawings that they drew themselves.  The thing I thought was most unique was that the centerpieces were grown months in advance, specifically for their wedding! After a ceremony on a small island on the lake, we all headed back to the main building to enjoy the reception.  From the sweet father-daughter dance, to the energetic mosh pit dancing at the end to Pantera, this wedding had it all!  All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to work with.  Congrats to Laura and Doug!


Laura and Doug's last name is "Way."  Pretty awesome sign!
