The day was just perfect for a wedding. The sun was shinning, everyone was smiling and the emotions were swirling in the air. We spent most of the getting ready time with Lauren. She was glowing with happiness. When we ducked out of the bridal room to say hi to Chris, he was just a little nervous. What groom isn't? His groomsmen were helping him out by telling him things like:
"It's only the special day she has been planning since she was 6," and other comments along those lines. I'm sure he really appreciated the help. =)
The ceremony was beautiful. Chris even had a little surprise for Lauren. She thought he was going to play his guitar while his best man sang. However, Chris was the one who sang to her. She was smiling as tears of joy ran down her face. She later said she wanted to get a tissue, but she didn't want to look away from Chris. It was a beautiful moment.
The reception was held at a relative's beautiful home. They had a large tent set up and several yard games set up around the outside. One of the most popular was Jenga. A couple of the guests got a pretty intense game going. There was also a beautiful pond that made a great backdrop for photographs. The first dance was so full of love. Lauren and her Dad had a special dance with canes and a hat for style. Chris and his mother really tore up the dance floor with their great dance moves.
We wish all the best to Chris and Lauren in their new life together as a married couple. Congratulations!
