Lauren + David | Sunset Harbor Yacht Club

When joining two people together in matrimony, you not only are joining two people, but two families and two sets of friends! When asked what made her day unique, Lauren answered, “The ability to bring together our friends and family from all walks of each of our lives; childhood friends and their families, high school, college and medical school friends were all able to meet one another and build friendships of their own. We knew all the great people in our lives would love each other as much as we loved them.” As Lauren says, “This is the one time in life where you’re able to have your favorite people all in one room to celebrate your love for each other. Enjoy it!” And enjoy their special day is exactly what Lauren and David did!

When asked about selecting her location, Lauren says “Sunset Harbor Yacht Club had the perfect combination of elegance and waterside/beach side that we wanted. Carley was fabulous from the first day we met her and made us feel like it was really the best place for us. The views were just spectacular. It’s very different from any other venue in Daytona.”
