My husband and I have shot a lot of weddings together - some really hot, some really cold - but the weather on the day Greg and Lauren got married was absolutely perfect. It was fitting though. They deserve the best - from the weather to the stunning Mint Springs Farm venue, it was such an amazing day. This couple is so sweet and we had so much fun with them on their wedding day. Greg and Lauren, thank you both for sharing your day with us! You guys are awesome!
It's always a privilege to shoot someone's wedding. We're able to get to know a little bit more about them, talk with their families and closest friends, and watch them interact on one of the most important days of their lives. The first half of the day the bride is off getting pampered and getting ready for that moment she first sees her man, and the groom is....kinda doing the same.......he puts on his suit then waits for his bride (for hours) while watching football or something manly like that ;-) Anyway, once they finally see each other everything clicks. That's how it was with Brad and Kristy. Seeing them look at each other, smile, laugh, hug, kiss, etc...it was just right. And Mint Springs Farm turned on a stunning sunset once again! Thank you guys for inviting us to share in your special day!!
My husband and I feel very fortunate to be able to do what we do. It's always fun because we come across many different kinds of people and each carry a unique love story that only they share together. Laurie is from the US while Sakis is from Greece, yet life found a way to bring them together. I always love hearing these kinds of love stories because I met my husband overseas in Australia and brought him back to the US. As you will see, Laurie looked absolutely beautiful on her special day at Mint Springs Farm. Sakis's reaction and the look in his eyes when she walked down the aisle said it all. Sakis cleans up quite nicely too, may I add ;-) It was so fun to celebrate with them all day and see them connect - you could see it in their eyes when they would look at each other. Thank you guys so much for letting us be a part of your day!
And a big shoutout to the awesome Dallas from Dallas Wilson Video Productions! Can't wait to see the video. Always a pleasure working with you!
CS Lewis once said concerning today's obsession with being 'grown up': "When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
When I first met Lauren at Mint Springs Farm in the bridal suite I witnessed a grown up with a child-like excitement for what was coming next. She made no apologies for her excitement. She was absolutely full of life and came across as such a genuine person through and through. Then I met Marcelo - I held my hand out to shake his hand and he stretched out his arms and said "Oh come on...we can hug!" These 2 people were made for each other. Their chemistry was undeniable and it was touching to see. They were so easygoing and an absolute joy to work with.
Marcelo and Lauren,
Thank you guys so much for inviting us in on one of the most important days of your lives. Never lose that excitement and love for life that you 2 have when you're together. We hope to catch up with you guys sometime in the near future in San Fran.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Marcelo and Lauren!
Lauren and Marcelo had different ideas of how they wanted this photo to look. Can you guess who wanted what?!?
