Alex and Lauren had such a beautiful wedding day! It was my first time shooting a wedding at The Sycamore at Mallow Run outside of Bargersville. It did not disappoint! The grounds and the venue are just breathtaking! When I got there Lauren was just getting ready to get into her wedding dress. When she pulled it out of the bag, I was so excited! It was such a gorgeous dress and it was totally a dress I pictured her wearing.
Alex and Lauren decided to see each other before their ceremony. It was a perfect first look! I love seeing how the couple reacts to seeing each other for the first time of the day! It is such a special moment! Alex had us cracking up about how she would dance in her dress haha. The pictures of the two of them were some of my very favorites! Lauren's flowers were stunning! They just fit the venue and day perfectly! After we took some pictures of the two of them and the bridal party...we waited for the ceremony to start. Their ceremony was outside. The weather couldn't have been better for it! At the end of their ceremony all their guests blew bubbles as the bride and groom walked down the aisle. Talk about some great pictures!! I loved it and so did everyone at the ceremony!
We took family pictures while their guests enjoyed cocktail hour. It was a perfect evening to have everyone outside. When the couple entered their reception everyone cheered as they danced on to the dance floor. After dinner, the newly weds shared their first dance followed by the other special dances. Then the party really got started! There were so many people enjoying their time on the dance floor! It was such a fun and beautiful day! I am so glad I got to be apart of it! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Ollila! Enjoy looking through many amazing pictures from their wedding day!
I wish you both many many happy years together!
