One of my favorite parts of wedding days is getting to capture the people – their love for each other, their supportive families, and the incredible happiness that comes from celebrating this kind of commitment. I adore Lauren & Erik together – these two care tremendously about each other and it shows. You may remember their adorable-ness from their engagement session last fall too! These two are just so great together! & I loved that they incorporated traditions from both of their faiths to create their own personal blended ceremony. Such wonderful people and a sweet day + You know I love all the teal details! :)
Waiting for his bride.. you can feel all the emotions and nervousness. So sweet!
Their chuppah made such an incredible background for their ceremony – love how light and airy it feels.
I think we hit all a good range of emotions during their ceremony.. we laughed (when Erik decided not to waste wine! ;) haha) and we cried happy tears :)
Loved their intimate wedding party made up of each of their siblings!
Haha seriously, can you tell they’re brothers?? That photo cracks me up!!
Ahh and then we got to spend a little quiet time with just Lauren & Erik. I love all of these so much! What a gorgeous couple!
Limo!! :) And then we were off to the Double Tree Columbia for an amazing reception!
Such fantastic dancing at this wedding!
Ah! I love how great a time everyone is having! :)
Then it was time for the HORA! So much fun to photograph!
Hehe.. that time that DJ Karl got on the dance floor to lead the Wobble! ;)
Ahh! You two are absolutely amazing! Thank you for having me there & congratulations again to Mr & Mrs Avant! :)
