Lauren & Traynor Wedding Reception


Lauren and Traynor celebrated their incredible journey as a couple with a gorgeous coastal church wedding in Manchester-by-the-Sea, followed by a reception at the Essex County Club.

Lauren and Traynor met on a blind date (set up by a family friend of both L+T), and as it turned out they grew up in the very same town, just never crossed paths. After years of dating, Traynor proposed, and a few months later they announced they had a little girl on the way.

Wedding planning quickly turned into baby planning and house hunting. Despite what Lauren and Traynor would refer to as their “wild ride”, their wedding plans went off without a hitch, and it was filled to the brim with sentimental details.

Gus and Ruby Letterpress created a custom invitation suite, including a save the date that told Lauren and Traynor’s love story in watercolor. Lauren and Traynor wrote their own vows (there was not a dry eye in the church), and their darling baby girl, Blaire, joined them at the alter.

Dana Markos Events created the breathtaking floral ceiling, primarily composed of wisteria – Traynor’s late mother’s favorite flower.

We were honored to be a part of Lauren and Traynor’s wedding, and we can’t wait to see where their journey takes them next!
