Intimate. That’s the word that best describes Lauren & Ryan’s day…it was intimate. Both Lauren and Ryan are from Indiana. So why did they get married here? When I asked them that, they said “you must not have been to Indiana before.” When they saw pictures of this area, they fell in love with it…in particular, they fell in love with a specific location in Pleasant Hill. So, Lauren and Ryan’s families and closest friends joined them here to witness their blessed union. Unfortunately, one part of this area they didn’t count on was…the rain. If you recall, I blogged Lauren and Ryan’s engagement session awhile back. Click here to see that. It was a perfect and beautiful day. Then came wedding day….and rain. I felt absolutely horrible for them…fly all this way to get rained out. So, plans were improvised and we prepared to do everything under cover. And then….the rain stopped! Just in time for the ceremony! Unbeknownst to Lauren, we moved the ceremony location back to the original spot…a special place under huge, beautiful oaks. She only found out as her dad walked her “down the aisle”….what a wonderful moment to witness. A beautiful and heartfelt ceremony followed…beautiful songs sung, tears cried, vows exchanged, and a celebration ensued.
A special thank you goes out to my fellow Click Chick, Karen Stott for assisting me with this wedding. Loved working with you!
These are images of the moment Lauren realized her ceremony was happening under the oak trees instead of under some tents….happy tears!
First kiss as husband and wife! 🙂
The amazing trees that surrounded the ceremony….
What a fun group of family and friends!!! Congratulations Lauren & Ryan! May your marriage be a blessing to all those around you.
