What comes to mind when you envision your wedding day? Do you picture white sandy beaches or walking down the center aisle of your home church? Do you see yourself surrounded by your closest friends & family in a small ceremony or dancing the night away with 150 people? Either way, your day should be how you envision it to be.
When I met with Lauren & Justin, they told me that they envisioned their wedding day to be full of love & joy. And I can testify that those dreams came true. Joy filled the bridal room as Lauren & her girls got ready; followed by the biggest smiles of the day at the bride & groom's first look. Love flowed from the alter of the church while they exchanged vows & continued into the reception as they shared dances with their sweet parents.
I adored every moment capturing this summertime wedding & at the end of the night was sad to see it end. Lauren has the biggest heart & has been the sweetest bride...not to mention how adorable her & Justin are. It truly was a pleasure to be a part of their love story.
One of my favorite parts of Lauren & Justin's wedding day was their first look!
The ceremony took place at their home church which is where they met & got engaged too!
Confession: I love 'stealing' the bride & groom away during the reception to capture a few just married portraits & here's why...
Ever wish a photo was a scratch & sniff?? Or better yet, a scratch & taste?! Let me tell ya, this cake by Delish Bakery was as wonderful to taste as it was to look at. Not to mention the beautiful backdrop made by the bride’s family.
Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Branch! I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for you as you begin this journey as husband & wife.
