Every time I wake up on a Saturday that I’m shooting a wedding and I look outside and the rain is just a-pouring (which has happened quite a lot this season), I can’t help but start singing “It’s like raaaaaaaiiiiiin on your wedding day!” It’s a disease. Darn you, Alanis! (You’re singing it now too, aren’t you? Have fun with that today! ;) )
Lucky for me, my brides and grooms never see the rain as a terrible disaster, as the song might lead you to believe. Honest to goodness, when I showed up to the Clubhouse on Highland for Lauren and Dave’s wedding, you would never have guessed that it was drizzling relentlessly just outside the windows. (Literally you guys… it DID NOT STOP. For even a few minutes. The ENTIRE day.) The mood was upbeat and laid back, which is how I like to roll, personally. It’s how every wedding day should be!
I just loved this wedding. You may remember these two from their engagement session (during which they ate ice cream in the freezing cold– it was pretty sweet), and you may have figured out pretty quickly that Lauren loves purple, which manifested itself on the wedding day in gorgeous bouquets of lavender. You might also remember their love for the Atlanta Braves, which showed up in the custom baseball bats gifted to the groomsmen and their tomahawk war chant performed during the first kiss (awesome). And instead of ice cream, they brought in Steel City Pops for the reception, which was a HUGE hit. You guys know how much I love weddings infused with personal details, so it was all a treat to photograph.
Huge thank you to the one and only Mary Margaret Smith for assisting me on this one! Love her!
On to the photos….
Quite the adorable couple, aren’t they?
Oh, how this umbrella has come in handy this year. :)
Congratulations Lauren and Dave! It was a joy to be a part of your celebration!
