After rescheduling and changing their wedding plans twice due to COVID-19, Brendan’s parents’ private estate became the perfect setting for Lauren and Brendan to become husband and wife.
Lauren and Brendan knew each other as kids, but with going to different schools, they didn’t get to become close until they reconnected as adults when Brendan sent a Facebook friend request to Lauren. Shortly after reconnecting, Brendan invited Lauren to his sister’s wedding as his plus one, and it became so evident that she fit in so perfectly with his family, and vice versa.
Their wedding was the perfect day and celebration for them, with around 50 of their closest friends and immediate family members in attendance. They also live streamed the ceremony, and over 100 of their friends and family members watched from all over the country.
Marcie of Celebrating Love by Marcie helped bring their wedding dreams to fruition, and it was so great getting to work with her! Following the heartfelt ceremony and a cocktail hour, a fun-filled reception, which included a catered dinner, speeches, and lots of dancing, was held under a tent beautifully decorated by Marcie and Stacy Bowen Floral Design.
The couple was surprised at the end of the reception by a sparkler exit as well as by a Timber Pizza Co. brick oven pizza truck ready to serve everyone delicious personal sized pizzas!
Congratulations, Lauren and Brendan! It was an honor to be your wedding photographer!
