May the Francis be with you. You know its going to be a good day when the bride and groom choose a hashtag that is Star Wars related. Some of you might remember these two from their engagement session when we played with lightsabers and possibly the cutest French Bulldog on the planet. I knew from the first time I met them that Lauren and Daniel’s Grove at Pennington Wedding was going to a fun day and I was totally right! We met up with Lauren and her Bridesmaids first at the bridal cottage n the grounds at The Grove. You could tell that they were enjoying the day and ready to have a good time.
After some getting ready shots Lauren wanted to have a first look with her dad and it was probably one of the most emotional moments of the day. One of my favorite first look shots of the year without a doubt, Then it was on to some fun with the bride and bridesmaids. I have to say this group was a lot of fun and down for whatever it took for the shot. And as a side note if there was ever a n Olympic sport for bouquet tossing sign these girls up!
Next up it was the guys turn. Can I just say that I love the personal touch of all the groomsmen wearing imperial Star Wars shirts! From there it was on to a “first touch” where Lauren and Daniel exchanged letters and gifts and held hands and prayed on opposite sides of door (as not to see each other) before the ceremony. You could see the happiness all over their faces. The ceremony was beautiful, set right in the garden next to the pavilion. After exchanging vows these two came back up the aisle as the guest cheered them on, and on to the party it was. The reception was a blast! Dj Shorty from PPE kept the dance floor packed from the first song to the last until it was time to send our couple off in a grand exit underneath glow sticks and lightsabers!
What an awesome day. I had such a great time getting to know these two and their families. I can’t thank them enough for choosing us to document this awesome celebration! Please enjoy some of my favorite shots from the day! May the force be with you!
