As Lauren walked out for their first look, Joseph stood in excited anticipation. Lauren tapped him on the shoulder and as he turned to see her, tears began to roll down his face. “How could she be this stunning?” And she definitely was!
When my photographer team arrived, the bride and bridesmaids were busy with hair and makeup. Lauren was calm yet excited that their day was finally here. Ashton did a wonderful job on everyone’s hair and makeup and everything ran along smoothly.
After that was finished, Mom helped Lauren get her dress on as the bridesmaids waited patiently for the first look with them. My team and I set her up on the stairs and prepared to get their real reactions and raw emotions. Their reactions were priceless and super sweet. Dad’s first look was next. Even though he didn’t say too much, you could tell the pride that Dad had seeing his daughter in her wedding gown. Lauren had sweet gifts for both of her parents.
Joseph and Lauren were high school sweethearts. Lauren is close to her dad so she was honored and happy that he was able to walk her down the aisle. At a young age, they knew they wanted to be together forever and this was the day they would promise each other to be there for each other through anything. The day was finally here. Family and friends sat watching them with joy in their hearts knowing these two were meant for each other.
Ending the night with dancing and special moments between the bride and groom, Joseph and Lauren’s day was just beautiful and so special. <3
