Matt + Lauren had the most perfect summer day for their wedding. Not too hot but not cold either, a miracle for early August. I started out at Matt’s parents’ house to capture him getting ready, his sweet Grandma helping him follow the directions for a tricky full Winsdor tie knot and him looking dapper in his custom suit. I then made my way to Lauren’s parents’ house, where Lauren was getting into her seriously gorgeous blush princess dress. With help from her sisters and mom (as well as a well-wishing neighbour), she strapped on her yellow pumps and she was ready to go!
The ceremony and reception were held at the quaint and lovely Detwiler Meeting House just outside of Roseville. where we did their engagement photos the year before, but now it was surrounded by tall corn fields and streaming with summer light. Their ceremony was simple, heartfelt and full of love. After we worked our way around the property, capturing them in the bliss of newlywed love, playing some lawn Jenga along the way, they headed inside the tent to celebrate with their friends and family with a mashed potato bar and lots of other awesome nosh. The selfie booth was a big hit and when the S’mores bar got set up, I knew it was going to be a great night. I made my exit (mouth full of S’mores) and left them to dance the night away.
Thank you Matt + Lauren for making me a small part of your day and for being so welcoming and kind.
