"We had friends in common, lived less than 3 miles away from each other but it took tinder for us to meet." -Lauren
Y'all, timing is everything. Lauren and Brian is the proved story of that. It's so funny how life works, right? So if you are waiting for something, trust me, when the time is right, it will come.
After being in a relationship for about 4.5 years, Brian asked Lauren to marry her. And of course she said yes. I remember their fun engagement session at Cator Woolford Garden a few months earlier. They're love and laugh are so contagious.
Accompanied by mimosas and the best girlfriends, her day started at W Atlanta - Buckhead. It's such a beautiful venue to get ready. We love that she came prepared with all the details for her wedding day. From her beautiful ring, perfume, and invitation, I can tell that everything was very thought of to incorporate their story in to the wedding day.
p.s. If you're in Atlanta and looking for an engagement ring, check out Masina Diamonds. They have the friendliest team members that will help you choose the best one.
Growing up in a Catholic church, they have decided to get married at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. When Lauren got to the church, she got nervous for a bit. But then, Brian arrived and they have written a love letter to each other before the ceremony. After reading the letter, Lauren was not nervous anymore. They're both ready to walk down the aisle.
After the ceremony, we got to capture some portraits at Holy Spirit Catholic Church before we drove to Chastain Horse Park. This is where the celebration begins, a fun and elegant Chastain Horse Park wedding.
The team has planned it really well. Guests were welcomed by champagnes and delicious hors d’oeuvres. It was truly a Chastain Horse Park wedding dream for all the guests.
Before they enter the reception as a husband and wife, we went to Chastain Horse Park's stable to meet THE GUEST OF HONOR, a mini horse named Buster. When they first told me about this mini horse, I imagined a pony, but OH.MY.GOODNESS. This little guy is so much cuter than what we imagined! We had so much fun with Buster. Lauren and Brian played with him a little bit and it was the sweetest. They told me that it was easily one of the highlights of their Chastain Horse Park wedding day because not only they got to be away from everybody for a bit and enjoy being together alone, but they also get to do something that they love together as a newlywed.
Their friends and family were so excited to welcome them at the reception at Chastain Horse Park Wedding. They were cheering for them from the balcony. So sweet!
After taking sometime alone (and they had fun + the sweetest newlywed moments) before the reception, now it's party time! Emerald Empire band did a great job welcoming them to the Chastain Horse Park wedding reception room and entertained everybody that night.
They're a big fan of Alabama.. ROLL TIDE! They incorporate their love for Alabama by suggesting their guests to watch the game that day in between celebration and put an Alabama logo in their cake, and also their cups. How cute!
One of the sweetest moment when they took time to celebrate Lauren's sister's birthday.
They ended their Chastain Horse Park wedding celebration with a special exit. Okay, maybe they didn't end it "end it" because they went to a bar in Buckhead to continue their celebration :) So fun! I mean, look at how fun they're having!
Lauren + Brian, you're literally spreading joy. Your laughter is contagious. Keep spreading joy. We can't wait to see how you both grow in this marriage journey. And you planned your wedding so well by incorporating your story to your wedding day. Thank you again for letting us into your life so that we can capture your moments through a looong time friend's perspective! Your rock!
