For months we have been looking forward to Lauren & James’ wedding day at The Farm at Eagles Ridge. We first met these two about three years ago at a wedding we did that will go down in history as the hottest wedding we have even shot. We then saw them again at a wedding two years ago that ended with an epic storm (and an epic picture of the couple right before the storm hit). At that wedding James informed Matt that he had the ring and would be proposing to Lauren soon. So, we knew that their wedding day would be an event to look forward to and we were right :)
Lauren and James met at the middle school where they both teach. Lauren is the art teacher, so there were a lot of details throughout the wedding that incorporated her talent. It was so wonderful to show up and know some of the people in their wedding party. The whole day was lovely, everything went off beautifully without a hitch. In fact it went by way too quickly! We are so happy for Lauren and James and a bit sad that this day we’ve been looking forward to is already over. But let’s not get sad because there are so many pretty things to show off from their day!
Love love love her shoes! Oh so cute and comfortable too ;)
Lauren’s earring from Sorelli and that glimmer you see in the background? All of her bridesmaids got to choose earrings of their choice form Sorelli as well.
Their wedding bling. Jude from J.A. Sharp custom designed Lauren’s wedding band!
All of their pretty stationary.
Ok one more picture of her fabulous shoes.
Reading her letter from James. So sweet.
The finishing touches put on by her mom.
Getting those heels on.
The bride is ready!
The beautiful Lauren.
The girls looked stunning. I think their dresses are perfect and flowy and light for a summer wedding.
Hair and makeup that looked amazing all day long by Plum Salon & Spa. Claire and Eden look adorable in their coral dresses and got to carry stuffed ‘Marshalls’ in honor of Lauren & James’ dog who wasn’t their for their special day.
All Things Beautiful made the stunning florals. The colors were a perfect contrast to the bridesmaids pale dresses.
James gettin’ all ready.
Don’t the guys look sharp?? And I love that Adam got to wear his signature bow tie :)
Check out those socks ;)
Escorted down the aisle by her father.
Seeing his bride for the first time!
So excited to see her groom.
A lovely ceremony.
A gorgeous day at the farm.
You may now kiss your bride!
The brand new Mr & Mrs.
I love this picture and that he was willing to indulge his mom and Lauren with this one! You see Lauren was the flower girl at his mom’s wedding and has a picture of Lauren kissing her on the cheek too :) But seriously how cute is this, and then that mini bow tie and chucks?! So.Cute.
The wedding party and the barn.
Rockin’ the sunshine.
A good looking bunch for sure.
And then we got some time with just the two of them.
Down on the dock.
The cool kids.
Ya they’re kinda fun ;)……also I’m glad that neither one is an English teacher because they would be horrified at my grammar ;)
Bride & Groom.
Gorgeous summer day!
So in love.
I like this one, it reminds me of a picture we got during their engagement session on their front porch.
Ya, so I was a little obsessed with their shoes….
Using the barn as a cool backdrop for these two, who are killing it in front of the camera by the way!

Cocktail hour and reception details. Lauren hand painted all of the glasses for their guests to enjoy beverages throughout the evening and then take home with them!
There were a lot of laughs during the speeches.

Running away at the end of the night :)
Congratulations Lauren and James!! We can’t believe the day is already done and we’re so happy for you!
