Welcome back to the blog, dear readers! Today, we are absolutely thrilled to share the heartwarming story of Lauren and Garrett’s beautiful early spring wedding at The French Farmhouse (IG @thefrenchfarmhousevenue). As a wedding photographer, we are always honored to be a part of such special moments, and this day was truly one for the books.
The morning of the wedding was filled with excitement and anticipation as Lauren spent precious moments with her closest friends, sharing laughter and stories over champagne while getting ready for the big day. Meanwhile, Garrett and his groomsmen were all smiles, eagerly looking forward to the momentous occasion. There’s something incredibly magical about the morning of a wedding, as emotions run high, and the realization of the joyous journey about to unfold sets in.
One of the most touching aspects of Lauren and Garrett’s day was the reading of heartfelt letters to one another before the ceremony. Stealing the last few minutes before walking down the aisle, buzzing with that infectiously joyful anticipation, allowed them to express their love and promises for the future. These love letters are truly from the heart, and personally one of our many favorite wedding trends.
With her dress buttoned and jewelry placed, his tie tied and hair neatly brushed, the couple surprised their wedding parties and parents with a first look. Witnessing these precious interactions between loved ones is always a heartwarming experience. Each first look was uniquely touching and unforgettable, capturing a spectrum of emotions from life long friends and proud beaming parents.
Inside the chapel was simply breathtaking, its high ceilings and bright interior opened up to a picturesque backdrop, allowing nature’s beauty to complement the sacredness of the altar with the tall oak trees that surrounded us.
The music filled the hall and the couple made their entrance. Happy tears flowed freely from the parents, wedding party, and the couple themselves, as they exchanged vows and sealed their commitment to each other. The significance of a wedding ceremony simply cannot be understated, as it symbolizes the merging of two lives and the beginning of a lifelong journey together. The promises made between two persons to face life together with all its many celebrations and challenges, hand in hand with the one who makes your heart sing- it’s a moving experience that we just cannot get enough of!
Sealing their vows with a kiss, the newlyweds made their way down past their cheering loved ones and to the bell tower of the chapel, joyously ringing in celebration of their union. It was a touching moment that resonated with everyone present, marking the start of their new adventure as husband and wife!
Filling in for the night’s reception, the room filled with an electric energy and palpable excitement as the couple made their grand entrance to the center of the room. Lauren and Garrett swept the dance floor with such grace and joy that it was an absolute delight to capture from behind the lens. The French Farmhouse has such a stunning layout with vantage points perfect for capturing a dynamic view of the festivities from both high and low, thoroughly showcasing the enchantment of the evening.
Wedding receptions are a whirlwind of fun and love, as friends and family come together to celebrate the happiness of the newlyweds. The joyous atmosphere, laughter, and infectious smiles are a photographer’s dream, making every shot a treasure trove of cherished memories.
Lauren and Garrett’s wedding in all was a day filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable moments. We are grateful to have been a witness to their journey, capturing the essence of their bond in photographs that will forever hold a special place in their hearts.
