I mentioned in Lauren & Bradley’s engagement session that Lauren texted me only a couple hours after she got engaged that she wanted me to save a date for her. What a dream!!

Lauren and Bradley booked their wedding before David & I picked ours. So, I had to make sure we had all of our wedding plans and honeymoon done in time to be home for their big day.

David and I were so excited that morning to finally be a husband and wife team and how we would be having a different outlook on wedding days, as we have had our own.

We arrived to The Red Horse Barn to capture the getting ready moments. It was so sweet to know that the boys and girls were only a walking distance away. It’s always a mission (it can be stressful, but so much fun), to ensure the bride & groom don’t see each other until it’s time. Not only that, but we had to make sure Lauren’s dad wouldn’t see her too. This is because her & her dad chose to do a first look (which is so sweet and full of smiles and inside hand shakes!). As we explored the venue for photos, it was time to head out to their church ceremony.

When photographing their ceremony, they had cute moments that had us all laughing. Such as, Bradley’s father (who was also his best man), handed him a mint before the first kiss! Perfection!! Hahah! & for their ceremony exit, Bradley did the perfect heel click!

They even did their hand shake after their kiss!! SO CUTE!

I got the chance to ride with the newlyweds & bridal party to the venue (which is always a blast!)

Once we arrived at the wedding venue, it was time to knock out the formal photos once we got to the venue. We also made sure to capture the love birds (of course!).

It was the time to party!!

For the grand entrance, everyone stopped for a photo opportunity (such a great idea!)

The first dance was so sweet, but in all honesty, my heart was racing for a moment that Lauren’s dad shared with me. That morning, he shared that their friend, Lily, wrote a song specifically for their dance & Lauren had no idea. My heart melted!!AHHH!! These photos of Lauren’s parents with the first dance are my FAVORITE!!

The moment that Lauren heard the song was written for them!

The rest of the night was so much fun! The crowd was awesome, Lauren & Bradley soaked up every moment, and they now have photos to remember back on!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the photos as much as I do! I definitely have some major favorites from the day. 🙂
