When I sit down to write a blog post for a wedding I’ve photographed, I’m often fumbling through the words to use as I try to sum up the day in my usual three paragraphs. And then I keep thinking to myself “come on, Lauren! This isn’t hard! Just write something.” But it IS hard; it’s hard because every. single. wedding I have photographed has had me in tears at one point or another; every wedding I’ve photographed has been moving and sentimental; they’ve all been fun and beautiful and they’ve each been filled with those little details that make the day that much more special. I’m going to sound cliche for a minute but holy cow…I’ve been so privileged to photograph some pretty incredible weddings with some pretty incredible people.
And here I am wanting to use all of those same words to describe Lauren and Jeremy’s beautiful St. Patrick’s Day wedding. But I won’t. Instead, I’ll tell you about the morning of their wedding day and Lauren’s home, filled to the brim with her best friends and best friends babies and her mom and her cats and so much happiness. Moana on repeat on the TV, makeup and hair products strewn across the kitchen counters and so much excitement for the day. I’ll tell you about Lauren’s Daddy and how she cherished every moment she had with him that day. I’ll tell you about Lauren’s beautiful mother and how she looked so adoringly at her baby girl all day long. I’ll tell about about the incredible Eldridge Furnace Inn that created the most beautiful backdrop to the day. I’ll tell you about Jeremy and how incredibly KIND he is. And his groomsmen! Ha! Such a FUN and SWEET group of guys! And I can’t not tell you about all of the Celtic influence on the day; the decor, the music! It was so awesome.
But most importantly, I want to tell you about Lauren and Jeremy. They are KIND and LOVING and warm and inviting and compassionate and so much fun. They are the best of friends and it shines through the way the not only love each other, but the way the love each other’s families. I’m certain of this: the world got a little sweeter when these two became one. I’m so blessed to call Lauren and Jeremy friends! Congrats you two! It was an absolute HONOR and JOY to photograph your day!
