Lauren & Taylor were married on a Sunday at the Cork Factory Hotel. Lauren wore a stunning Essense of Australia dress from Athena’s Bridal and had just enough details to compliment them as a couple. Their wedding was chic, rustic and just perfect for the two of them!
Matt & I really enjoyed having the extra time to spend with them as they chose to do a First Look. It’s not often that you get the view of the Cork Factory without all of the cars in the parking lot so we spent a lot of time walking around with them and the bridal party.
One thing that really stuck out to me about their wedding was the closeness they have with their families and friends. During the speeches there were many laughs and tears and genuine joy that these two were now married.
Her seamstress made the dress to wear with or without straps. Lauren chose to wear it strapless with a veil for the ceremony, and with the straps on for the reception.
Love, love, love her heels!
Personalized Toms for the reception :)
All hands on to get this girl ready to see her groom.

The rooms at the Cork Factory are lovely.
This is just one of the special touches they added to their wedding day. Lauren’s bouquet is wrapped in the lace from her mother’s wedding dress. And the picture attached is of her grandfather.
Lauren’s family and friends prayed for her just before she saw her groom.
Taylor and his bow tie.
Taylor (as most guys) wasn’t a fan of the lip gloss kisses ;)
They are pretty adorable together.

They l.o.v.e. each other.
It was so great to have access to the whole building without the cars in the lot!! Perks of a Sunday wedding :)
Perfect for each other.
Workin’ the camera.
Their bridal party was lots of fun!
Matt set up this shot, I think it’s pretty clever.
The girls dresses are so simple and lovely.
They spent a few minutes before the ceremony reading the letters they wrote one another.
And since we had some more time before they made it official we grabbed some more pictures of just the two of them.
The Cork Factory uses the ballroom as both the ceremony site and reception hall. It’s quite the transformation, this is how it looks for the ceremony.
Walking down the aisle.
Vows & rings.
Kissing again ;)
Taylor and his wife :D
And then the room transforms into a gorgeous reception venue. I love the centerpieces Floral Designs of Mt Joy made!
Their first dance was to Tyler Ward’s ‘Falling’.
