Lauren and Mitchell were scheduled to get married in 2020, but they postponed until 2021 due to the pandemic. It was worth the wait!
The day started off bright and early at the salon with the ladies. Lauren’s colors were shades of purple including Victorian Lilac by Bill Levkoff for her bridesmaids’ dresses. Lauren said she can be indecisive, but her hair, makeup, and gown looked amazing and she made so many excellent choices throughout the wedding day with her planning!
Lauren and Mitchell have been dating for about six years and engaged about almost three years. After the salon, Lauren and the ladies got ready at Lauren’s parents’ home. Mitch and the guys got ready at his new home – I can tell how much work he has been putting in fixing up the home including planting new grass before the wedding!
Lauren and Mitch headed to St. Gertrude for the ceremony and then afterwards, we went to Northmoreland Park for photos. Parks can be hit or miss for photos and I always scout for photography – I found a lovely area with trees, shade, a field, an overturned rowboat – all kinds of little gems for photos.
Talk about luck – we were finishing the LAST shot when rain just started pouring down out of the sky. Lauren and Mitch handled it in stride and ran to their car. Luckily, the rain let up for some evening photos. Veltre’s has a great overlook that photographs nicely right after dark during what we photographers call “blue hour.”
Despite not describing themselves as big dancers, Lauren and even Mitch were tearing up the dance floor all night!
Note to the couple:
Lauren and Mitchell, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
