Hey all!

We’ve been waiting for this one since we took their engagement photos in August! When we first met these two I think we clicked right away! They were enthusiastic and super excited about each other and their future together which makes our job ten times easier. It was so nice and refreshing to see a couple just completely head over heels for one another. I can only hope that they will continue to feel that way for the rest of their lives! It’s a rare and beautiful thing.

Kristen began her day at the Caldwell Chapel around 2:30, all the ladies were transforming into even more beautiful subjects for us to photograph. We always love this part of a wedding, when there’s just a hint of anxiety, a hint of haste, and of course throw a bit of excitement in the mix and you have yourself a successful pre-wedding party! Before we knew it, she was walking down the aisle. They said their I do’s, people clapped and we’re joyous. Then everyone was off to The Grand! They had 5 HUGE prints of their favorites from their engagement session out front in the movie poster frames and it simply was off the charts! Everyone was simply in awe of them! We have never had better service from a venue, thanks to Tena Edwards at The Grand.

I will say if you’re in the process of planning your big day, please…please consider having a wedding planner. Luckily Weekend Wedding Warrior made everyone’s lives go smooth that day, plus they were nothing but positive, upbeat and witty too. Our Vendor list is at the end of the post, if your interested in contacting any of them!

Anyways, this was such a fun last wedding of the year! Now on to the holidays! We hope you all have a wonderful rest of the year, and thanks Kristen and Blake for allowing us to be apart of your day and your lives. We hope you enjoy the photos and have a wonderful honeymoon in December!

Talk soon,
Lauren & Ryan
