Lauren and Shan’s wedding at Holly Farm in Carmel Valley was like walking into a tropical paradise. The private family-owned chic tropical hideaway was first established over 100 years ago and has been lovingly taken care of by Doyle and Mary Moses. Their daughter Erin runs operations and made Lauren and Shan’s wedding day fun and smooth.
I have known Shan since college when we were both young journalists at UC Davis’ college newspaper. He is one of the most likable people I know. Since that time, Shan has gone on to become a successful graphic design editor at The New York Times. Lauren, a librarian in Brooklyn, is whip-smart and balances Shan’s quirky sense of humor. Their wedding brought together their fun group of journalism and literary friends.
Many toasts were given, laughs were shared and the party went late into the evening.
