Laura and Eric's wedding was an absolute fairytale. Between the stone venue that resembled a castle, to the champagne-colored tulle dress, I think it's safe to say that Laura was definitely a princess who found her knight in shining armor. I was absolutely thrilled when Laura contacted me last November about documenting her wedding. I finally got a chance to meet both her and Eric at their winter engagement session when it was below freezing. You know you have a bride dedicated to getting great pictures when she'll wear a dress outside while it's snowing! After spending just one afternoon with them, I felt like I had known them for ages. They're both so friendly and easy-going, I knew that their wedding day was going to be a blast to capture! By the way they snuggle up to each other and constantly make each other laugh, Laura and Eric are the kind of couple that you can just tell are best friends! Their wedding was nothing short of amazing and I'm so excited to be sharing their story with you!
The morning started off at the salon for hair and makeup. One of Laura's bridesmaids made monograms for all of the girls' matching button downs! Paired with their personalized cups, the bridal party looked so cute while getting ready for the big day!
Would you believe me if I told you that their venue, Park Tudor, is a school?! It's definitely the most beautiful school I've ever seen!
Everyone was oohing and aahing over Laura's bridal details all day long. From the satin navy heels and bouquet filled with pink peonies, to the Kate Spade jewelry and rose gold wedding band, every piece was fit for a princess! Her gown was the exact dress that every little girl dreams of wearing on her wedding day; it was just stunning!
Laura looked just breathtaking all day and you could tell in her smile how excited she was to be marrying the love of her life!
Eric was looking very dapper himself!
Laura and Eric wanted to do a "first look" before their ceremony. They wrote each other letters before seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day and their reactions were so sweet!
Not only does a first look allow the bride and groom to have a few quiet moments together on their special day, but it also lets us shoot the bride, groom, and wedding party portraits all before the ceremony! Laura and Eric fell so naturally into poses; that's a definite sign that they're meant to be together!
If you can't tell by the last shot, Laura and Eric's wedding party was SO much fun!
All of Laura & Eric's closest family and friends came to their ceremony to witness them become husband and wife.
It's official... they're married!
After many hugs & congratulations, it was party time! Their reception was filled with lots of laughter, dancing, and some pretty delicious donuts!
Congratulations Laura and Eric! I am so honored to have been a part of your beautiful wedding day. You two are such a great match and I've loved getting to know you both over the last 8 months. Thank you for having me and I wish you both the absolute best!
