Hellooo glorious vintage shot! Props to The de Jaureguis on all the stunning captures of Lauren + Derrick at Holman Ranch. (These two didn’t waste any time connecting with photographers Courtney + Erin after seeing the photos they did for a friend’s wedding!) Now, about all those modern black and white details the gals at Engaged and Inspired helped bring to life…

Lauren explains, Derrick and I regularly spent time at his family’s home in Carmel-by-the-Sea while we were dating, so it was a special place to us. We loved that Holman Ranch pretty much guaranteed us sun (instead of the fog that often is in Carmel-by-the-Sea), we also loved that the majority of our 215 guests could drive from the bay area and Sacramento but still felt like a destination wedding, not to mention Holman Ranch is stunning and I loved that our wedding party could all stay in one place together for the weekend.

Lauren’s mom helped her research, organize, and bring her ideas together for the day. Not to mention offered up loads of emotional support! So sweet.

We started planning in July of 2014 so we had just over a year in total. The biggest hurdle was finding a venue—once we had that everything else came together. Wedding planners often have venues they work at regularly and know the space and needs like the back of their hand, it was very helpful to find the venue then the wedding planner for us!

Congratulations Lauren and Derrick!
