Lauren + Patrick / Chateau Elan Wedding

When you combine a beautiful bride and groom with a beautiful venue, you get nothing but beautiful pictures.  I mean, can this wedding be any better?  I think not…. I remember meeting Lauren and her mom at a bridal show and we just loved the sweet mother/daughter relationship they had.  Love seeing wonderful family relationships like that… just from that, I knew that this wedding was going to be fantastic.  The day was gorgeous, but not more than the stunning bride, Lauren.  Loved the dress she chose for herself!  Did you know that a new wedding trend is to do a first look not just with the groom, but with the father of the bride?  I LOVE that and I’m so doing that with my girls.    That makes me cry so much.  I know, ya’ll, I just can’t help it.  Just loved how her dad was mesmerized by his daughter’s beauty.  That bitter sweet moment where it’s such a great day and he’s so happy for her, but it hurts that she’s ‘leaving’.  Oh man, I’m going to be a hot mess.  And then, Lauren of course had a first look with her groom, Patrick, and it couldn’t have been sweeter.  Loved that we captured sweet expressions from both of them…. Can you imagine what’s was going through their minds and how fast their hearts were beating?  This couple was one of the sweetest I’ve met!  Weddings are a big deal, guys… moments that you can’t ever experience again happens on your wedding day… I know I say this all the time, but really, I’m so honored to be a part of those moments and being able to save that for the rest of the couple’s lives.  Wedding photos truly are a treasure that will be cherished forever.  Lauren and Patrick, thank you both for the amazing wedding.  We had such a great time and we hope that you love all the images!
