If you ever dreamed of a backyard wedding, Lauren & Pat’s special day needs to be added to your list of inspiration.
Their beautiful Saturday began with one gorgeous outdoor ceremony and ended with a bang
(&& I’m not joking. It had fireworks: so a literal bang!).
If it wasn’t obvious, Pat is a pyrotechnics genius, which made this wedding a thrill to witness!
But so many things made the night incredible:
The chickens had bow ties.
The newborns had wagons.
The beer was flowing on ice.
The guests were loud, loving and energetic.
The details were white and clean and rustic.
There was a photo-worthy trailer,
hand-built double doors for the bride to walk through,
and my favorite:
a handle of fireball with a Gopro attached.
Yes you read that correctly: a Gopro, attached to liquor:
making one necessary video keepsake!
If that wasn’t enough to make your heart flutter, Lauren & Pat have a relationship worthy of a Lifetime Christmas movie script.
(Maybe not super cheesy, but the ones that make you feel all warm & happy inside!)
They fit together flawlessly and you could tell they thoroughly enjoy each other’s presence. That in itself could tug on anybody’s soul!
It was an immense honor to capture their beautiful day! I’ve known (Kukta) since high school & I’m ecstatic that I could help commemorate this new chapter in her life!
Enjoy some of my absolute faves (& I’m not sorry there are so many!) // xo riss
