I feel like I say this all the time, but there is nothing better in my book than a backyard wedding. Congrats to Jacob & Lauran, I simply adored everything about your wedding day! When I first met Lauren and her mom I was very excited to see how everything would come together. Lauren has the coolest personal style, and I knew she would have many personal details added to her wedding. Their day had a flair of vintage and eclectic pieces, but what I loved most was the New Orleans emphasis. They used bright and colorful linens, flowers, and had a full buffet of crawfish, jamabalaya, and muffalettas! Their wedding was held at Lauran’s parents home. It is beautiful and exactly the kind of home I love; gorgeous landscaping and a cozy wrap around porch. They built a beautiful dock and arbor over the lake where their wedding was held. Jacob saw Lauren for the first time that day when she walked down to the arbor. The two wrote their own vows which were very sweet and lead to a few tears for all.
Their reception was held in the backyard in a colorful decorated tent. Jacob & Lauran celebrated their marriage by kicking off the evening with toasts and dinner. The buffet table was made out of re-purposed pallets, succulents, and even an old tire; one of the neatest buffet tables I have never seen. The dancing was kicked off with their first dance which was a folk tune they really boogied too. After sunset we went back to the pond for an evening boat ride. They had many floating candles on the pond and even a trail of flowers behind the boat. It made for some gorgeous pictures! The rest of the evening was spent enjoying the moonlight, socializing with guests, and dancing with the crowd. Best wishes Jacob & Lauran, so happy I was able to capture your day!
