Joshua+Lauren | The Barn at Red Gate

Photographing weddings this year has been incredible. I can't tell you how many times we smiled from ear to ear and wiped away tears when we see the look in the mother's eyes when she buttons the last button on her daughters gown, when the groom turns around with a huge smile and says "You look BEAUTIFUL", when a dad walks his daughter down the aisle and he leans in to give her one last kiss on the cheek before she says "I do", when the speeches have not a dry eye in the house, and when you have first dances that will melt your heart. We see moments during the day that are unforgettable and it's such a privilege to be able to capture every part of the wedding day! Lauren and Joshua were our last wedding of the year and trust us... We saved one of the best for last!! These two made us smile and cry from ALL OF THE ABOVE!! There was one thing about them that I heard talked about over and over that day.. THEIR CONNECTION!!! I'm not kidding when I say.. Joshua lights up when Lauren is around, it's like not a soul is in the room its just him and her. Their wedding day was beautiful, from the weather, the colors, the cake, the beautiful vows, the choreographed dance, and their beautiful sparkler exit! I think it's safe to say... we ended this wedding season on a good note!!! haha Congratulations Joshua and Lauren!
