Laura planned such a beautiful backyard wedding!!! She must have put so much planning into her day as there were soooo many details to capture! Laura got ready at her mothers house and was completely surprised at how great she looked when she finished putting her dress on. Laura normally doesn't dress up and was really excited to see what JR's reaction was going to be when he saw her in her lace wedding gown.
We then headed off to the ceremony site aka her backyard where she gained the approval of neighbors to use some property for parking all the cars of their 200+ guests. When we arrived it was like a sea of cars. But they had everything planned out and the 200 guests fit wonderfully into their plans.
The ceremony began and Cameron (their son) was brought down the aisle in a little red wagon which was completely adorable! Laura and her father followed down the aisle towards the man of her dreams, JR. The ceremony was truly wonderful filled with lots of lovely shared moments and lots of laughter when Cameron starting to run away when it was time to do the sand ceremony.
After the I Do's were said we took off to Kreidersville Covered Bridge for the Bridal Party photos. We also made a pit stop at the Tavern by their house that was their main hang out when they were dating. The owner was awesome enough to allow us to use the bar for some photos to help capture their day and their story.
We then headed back to their house or more specifically their backyard where the party commenced. Guests enjoyed all the wonderful food, the games that were set up, the photo booth and a bouncy castle for the kids (or daring adults). We then set off some lanterns later in the night that didn't go according to plan but were still beautiful.
They planned an awesome backyard wedding and I'm honored that I was able to be part of their wedding day by preserving the many memories for them through photos that can be enjoyed through the years.
