Laela and Mike's wedding is certainly easy to love. With totally on-point details (like Laela's gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress with lace cap sleeves) and the fact that this cute twosome couldn't stop beaming at each other, it's clear this real wedding was a hit! The bride and groom are both close to their families, with each having a sibling in the wedding party, and Laela's brother acting as the ceremony's officiant. And who would have thought that this whole thing started with a blind date setup by a mutual friend?

Thank you to Juan Maclean for sharing this beautiful New England real wedding with us!
