I met Eric and Lauren and I instantly loved them! We met on Butler's campus (where they met at school) for their winter engagement session. It was one of my favorite engagement sessions to date! It was truly a winter wonderland complete with a frozen waterfall! See more of their engagement session at the link below.
There was a 90% chance of storms on their wedding day (who would have thought in the middle of August!?). Rain on your wedding day is good luck after all! I told them we would work around it to get the pictures they wanted! It all ended up working out well! I LOVED how the pictures of the bridesmaids and the groomsmen on the golf course turned out thanks to the cloudy skies. The sky ended up matching the bridesmaid's dresses. It made for great pictures!
Eric and Lauren decided not to see each other before the ceremony. They decided to hide behind a corner to hold hands as they prayed over each other and their special day. It was such a touching moment and I know it helped calm their nerves. The ceremony was perfect. The pastor shared a lot of details about how the couple met and got engaged. It was a nice touch to the ceremony. The couple ended up doing a little send off outside with bubbles after the ceremony and it was fun for everyone!
Eric and Lauren had some Butler University charm throughout their day. You will see the details they added in the pictures below. My favorite was a cookie of the Butler Bulldog that they gave as a thank you to each guest. It was so cute! I know the whole room got a bit watery eyed during Lauren's Dad's speech. He talked about how Lauren would call him on the phone whenever she needed help. He then went on to share the new number she can call for help and it was Eric's.
They ended the evening with a lot of dancing with their friends and family! It was such a perfect day! Enjoy the pictures below! :)
What a beautiful day it was! I am so glad I got to be apart of it. I wish you both many blessed years together!
