Happy Monday friends! This is maybe going to be the prettiest Monday EVER here on the blog & that’s because today we get to share the STUNNING wedding of Lauren Ann & Steve! We have known Steve for pretty much as long as we’ve had a business, because we all met when a bunch of us started a local photography group here in CT all the way back in January of 2007!! Over NINE years ago…it’s crazy how time flies. And I think when you spend that much of your life making a career out of observing love & observing couples, you start to develop almost this instant sixth sense for which couples are the real deal and are just naturally so GOOD together. And do you want to know something? I knew that about Lauren Ann & Steve before I ever met her. I could see it so clearly even through Instagram & Facebook. I could tell a change in our friend, not because he wasn’t already amazing…but because of the way he came alive & loved in a way we’d never seen before when Lauren Ann & Luke entered the picture. And so, I loved Lauren Ann before I’d even met her…and that only quadrupled once I did!
Lauren Ann is the kind of person who makes everyone around her feel seen & loved! And to know her is to feel like you have an instant new lifelong friend. She is kind and generous and a firecracker all rolled into one. She is a bright, bright light and beautiful inside & out. And we just feel SO lucky to get to call her a friend now too!!
These guys got married on a day where they were calling for rain, and yet all that we got were beautiful soft gray skies that made every color even more amazing! And just wait til you see this color! That’s because just wait until you see this TREE that Yumiko from Hana Floral did! The apple trees in Bishops Orchard weren’t blooming yet, and so she MADE a cherry blossom tree herself! And that’s where these two got married…in front of the only blooming tree in an entire orchard that was bare…how COOL is that?? Speaking of the amazing DREAM TEAM we were working with, just check out this line up of Beth Chapman from The White Dress by the Shore & Beth Chapman Styling, a Hayley Paige dress, DD Nickel on beauty, the Marketplace at Guilford for the reception, and the entire amazing team from Jubilee Events!! Like I said…a total dream!
So in light of all that, this may just be the BIGGEST wedding post we’ve ever put up! But I don’t think you’ll mind! Enjoy a few of our faves!
LA & Steve, we LOVE you guys! Thank you SO much for letting us be a part of your incredible day!
