Lauren and Steven's Wedding

It’s hard to pick a favorite piece of a wedding day but if I had to, I would say that I adored how calm Lauren and Steven were. There was rain predicted in the forecast and they planned for an outdoor ceremony, but they continued to shrug it off in that doesn’t-matter-because-I’m-going-to-be-married-by-the-end-of-the-day-no-matter-what kind of way. They didn’t rush or fret or stress and instead soaked up every minute of the beautiful, rain-free day that unfolded. They stopped to smell the flowers and laugh at one another. They hugged and kissed and cried. They never wasted a moment.

Lauren and Steven, we are so thankful to have been part of this beautiful day. Congratulations!
