Shield your eyes! The adorable details at this wedding may be TOO ADORABLE.

Lauren and James wed over Labor Day weekend at the Long Beach Museum of Art, and they were absurdly easy to photograph. Lauren didn’t stop smiling all day long, and James tore up the dancefloor to APC Entertainment‘s tunes during their reception.  I was surprised to learn that Lauren and James had researched the gray and yellow palette, Mini Cooper embellishments (they both drive one), and other decorative ideas themselves, and executed them solely with the assistance of family and friends. They certainly have a designer’s eye!  And designer’s taste…the floral designs from Romance Etc. were both sweet and inspiring, and no self-respecting Long Beach native would deny that the cupcakes from Frosted for dessert were a great call.

Artistic abstract portrait

Because they got married at an art museum, Matt and I figured that we should create least one abstract, artistic portrait.

Same size shoes

One of Lauren's bridesmaids was amused to discover that she wears the same size shoe as the 11-yr-old flower girl!

First Look, Wedding portrait

Lauren & James opted to have a "First Look" and see each other before the ceremony, to get some of the family pictures out of the way.

Getting emotional

I caught James' best man getting a little emotional when Lauren emerged to walk down the aisle.

Lauren made sure there was a moment during the ceremony when she could update her relationship status on Facebook to "married."

Their "getaway car" was a man-powered RICKSHAW! Truly a fantastic "Just Married" vehicle for one of Long Beach's most fantastically cute and creative couples. Congratulations Lauren & James!
