(disclaimer.. i will not shove your gazillion dollar precious gemstone wedding ring into a pastry or the like unless you are ok with it, Thanks, John)

Meet Lauren and Mark. You were introduced to them at this blog from last year. ~Engaged~

Lauren and Mark were a referral from another good client-turned-friendship in Richmond… these guys went from clients to great friends in a heartbeat. It’s actually crazy that we have taken so long to blog this wedding, it was highly anticipated on Lauren’s blog, I Now Pronounce  You Bride and Blog… you can also catch up with her on her new life blog.. I Now Pronounce You Wife and Blog.  She is a fabulous writer and I often find myself laughing outloud when reading her blogs.  A quick warning to anyone who was at Lauren’s wedding and also to the Mark and Lauren themselves…you had way to many fabulous moments-turned-images but in order to actually blog any of your crazy goodness we had to just choose a few of our favs.  Without further ado…

The details…

First Look

This was such a sweet and sincere moment in which Mark was admiring the cute little bow on the the front of her dress.

I have it on good authority that the bow is what sold her on this dress so I was very glad he took the time to so sweetly give it the attention it deserved.  😉

Lauren + Mark

This was honestly one of those weddings where the smile rarely left my face.  You could feel the love radiating from every corner, from every guest, and especially from Mark and Lauren.  We fell head over heels for the whole family and we are so excited that we get to see them again in just a few short months for Lauren’s brother, Eric’s wedding to his fiancee, Amanda.  We are proud to call these two friends and cannot wait to see where life’s journey takes them!
