Lauren + Christian [Inn at Leola Village Wedding]

The greatest gift of being a wedding photographer is the super fun people I meet along this journey! Lauren was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed in 2014, so I was elated when she booked me for her own wedding.

Lauren and Christian absolutely adore each other, and they had such positive attitudes despite the 102 degree temps. (Shout-out to Kristen of Unfading Beauty for the flawless makeup that lasted all day in the heat.)

Inn at Leola Village was a picturesque setting for their celebration, and I can’t rave enough about the killer dance party! Central City Orchestra is quite possibly the most amazing live band I’ve ever witnessed in 10 years of wedding photography.

Don’t miss the photos from Lauren and Christian’s “trumpet exit" which had a New Orleans vibe: they strolled through sparklers as the band played, walking behind the couple.

What a memorable, happy wedding!
