All you need is love.
Lauren had monogrammed shirts made for all her bridesmaids and hers had a little heart on the back with Will love Lauren in it. Cute!
The bridesmaids word blue Lula Kate dresses. I so love Lula Kate.
And Lauren wore Sperry's with her dress. The one's she got even had a small gold "M" hanging from them. Perfect!
Lauren and Will each getting ready.
Putting the finishing touches on.
Lauren's friends came in to pray with her just before the wedding.
and she had a beautiful moment with her mom as well.
Before the ceremony, which was performed by Rev Marty Younkin of Love Notes Weddings, Lauren and Will had Marty read a statement to all their guests to turn off their cells phones and cameras and let the photographer, i,e. me, capture all the memories so that they could be fully present at the ceremony without the distractions of technology. Ahhh...I love that. He pointed at me which was a little embarrassing but I love working with Marty, he's got a great sense of humor and he always tailors the service to the couple.
Lauren's grandfather could not make it to the wedding so they brought an iPad and streamed it on Skype for him. He got to sit right on the front row with mom.
Will gets his first look at Lauren in her dress.
Lauren is walked down the aisle by her dad and stepfather.
Such a pretty ceremony.
Laughter and "tears".
Man and Wife...YES! or as Lauren tried to get her bridesmaids to say "Boom...Married!"
A really sweet moment immediately after they left the chapel. I love the joy on her face.
The wedding party.
A few reception details.
Sweet dance with dad.
Cake cutting and there were lots of photographers :)
They only had one cake so Lauren surprised Will by putting a little something for him on it...Ironman.
Just so you know...Will really likes Ironman :)
Lauren dances with her superman to the Just Jazz Band they had playing at their reception. I always love a live band.
They left in a cool classic Belaire.
And then we went out and took a few more beautiful photos.
Congratulations Lauren and Will. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
