LAUREN + WILL | JANUARY 17, 2016
Finally!! It's here!!! My first Story Told Wedding of 2016. I met with Lauren and Will over coffee last year and I couldn't believe the day was finally here! I loved getting to know Lauren over the past year and chatting with her while Will was away at training. She was counting down each day and missing him like crazy! I know he was missing her too. Can you believe these two have known each other since they were kids? And then they found out they lived just a couple of houses away from each other! The rest is history!! I was so excited when we arrived at The Pinnacle in Grove City on their wedding day. The Pinnacle is such a beautiful venue, and they had both their ceremony and reception there! It was a frigid day, but so so so beautiful. A soft snow was falling on and off all day. If you've been to The Pinnacle, you know that there are windows surrounding the hall, and it made the entire day feel so dreamy! Red roses popped against Lauren's beautiful dress! Seriously, loved that dress! These two are so adorable! They did a first look, which was my first time photographing a first look! Will turned around to see Lauren and couldn't stop looking at her! And what a gorgeous ceremony! The family all came up and laid hands on Lauren and Will and prayed for them and their marriage. They played the shoe game at their reception, a total favorite of mine, and ended the night with the chicken dance and a sparkler exit!! So fun! Thank you two for having me as part of your day! I hope this first month of marriage has been incredible!!
