Some weddings just amaze you in every way - from the joy of the couple, the calmness and ease of the day, the amazing vendor team (which likely helped with the calmness and ease of the day! ;) ), and the stunning beauty of all the details, Lauren & Matthew's Pine Knoll Farms wedding just outside of Augusta, GA couldn't be more perfect! I originally met Lauren while shooting my dear friend's wedding, so when she reached out for her own wedding and shared the vision for it, I knew it was going to be beyond special.
A few favorite elements? Lauren arrived to the ceremony in a horse drawn carriage in honor of her Pop who walked horses for years, the lovely florals by Cote Designs, Lauren & Matthew's sweet love and their couple's portrait session, the "Love Lock" they added to the Love Lock gate reminiscent of their time together in Paris, those stunning Manolo Blahnik "something blue" shoes, the amazing sunset with the horses roaming in the fields, a dance party that rivaled all others... the love of their day could go on and on! And a huge shoutout to Laurel Avenue for making everything run so, so smoothly! But for now, I'll just let you see for yourself!
And if you want a peek at Lauren's Bridal Portrait Session, you can find it here!
Lauren & Matthew, thank you - for trusting me with your day and your memories. Right from the start I could hear the excitement in your voice, Lauren, about the day and what it held. Your intentional planning and thoughtful demeanor made everyone feel so cared for by you all day long. And Matthew, the way you look at Lauren is beyond sweet. I can't wait to see how you two love and celebrate over the years, because I know one thing for sure: it's going to be a beautiful marriage!
And one final photo right above of my sweet friend/former roommate/former bride, Wendy, & Lauren! So fun having past LCP friends at my weddings!
