Beaches Real Wedding: Lauren + Justin’s Stylish Wedding | Beaches Turks & Caicos
Get ready to swoon over this fashion-forward family’s Beaches Real Wedding at Beaches Turks and Caicos!
We’ve never met a couple more en vogue than Lauren and Justin! The stylish duo fell in after the bride-to-be Lauren re-connected with her future groom at a cousin’s wedding. Seeing the impeccably dressed Justin let loose and dance on top of a table sealed the deal for her that one day he would be her husband.
6 years and one adorable (seriously, she’s the cutest!) daughter later, the couple decided to plan an intimate FamilyMoon to celebrate their love for each other and have a family vacation at the same time. What’s incredible is that just about every style element of this Beaches real wedding was an Etsy original. We can only dream our DIY projects come out this unbelievably charming. Even sweeter is the lengths this tight-knit family went through to involve their daughter Harlow in every element of their wedding. Read on to see how deep-rooted love of family and a flare for fashion brought this family to the gorgeous shores of Turks and Caicos to glam it up in paradise!

Justin was just as impeccably styled as his bride to be on their wedding day. Deciding to go with a true classic wedding look, he had a custom tailored suit by Calvin Klein with black rose cuff links, black bow tie and a rose fold pocket square. Sharp!
The couple’s sweet daughter Harlow was a dream in her white custom made little gown, rocking the cutest embellished slippers we’ve ever seen. The little busy body split her time equally between her mom and dad, excited to help them get all dressed up for the big day!
Knowing that on her wedding day she definitely wanted something different, Lauren, obsessed with fashion and design since high school, designed her entire look herself. With the help of Dresses by Linda & Agnes, Lauren sent her designs off and trusted they would make her dream come true. “When it came to my wedding dress I knew it had to be something different than what you typically see. It had been my style for such a special time in my life.”
As a fabulous and thrifty bride, Lauren found her jewelry, shoes, custom signs and most importantly a charm honoring her late mother all on Etsy. Her bouquet was a custom WeddingMoon mix of blush peonies and white roses.
Adorable Harlow totally stole the show in her cute white dress walking down the aisle with this precious sign hanging around her neck!
..Seeing my girls for the first time; the weather was perfect, the air was sweet, the breeze was gentle, and the sun casted not one shadow on my bride or our beautiful daughter. As they approached it was so hard to hold back my excitement and also fight back tears. It was simply beautiful and will forever be one of the greatest days of my life.
Not to miss out on one moment of this day, Harlow insisted of being involved in everything; even for the first kiss! We truly love how Lauren and Justin embraced the FamilyMoon spirit and involved their daughter each step of the way.
“After losing my Mother suddenly in 2014 and my Father who is disabled from a stroke, I knew I did not want a traditional wedding if my parents could not be there to give me away. I literally wanted to run away with my future husband and my daughter, get married and have the time of our lives. There was no doubt in my mind that we were doing the right thing! “- Lauren
“We would like to say thank you to everyone at Sandals/Beaches Turks & Caicos. From the maids to the bar and restaurant staff, everyone was very nice and helpful. We would like to extend a special thank you to our wedding planner(s), photographer and videographer for doing an amazing job of capturing our special day.” – Justin & Lauren
