Angela and Lauron, how do we even freeeeaking count the ways we love you?!
We met these two at RN74 for a drink to talk wedding, the drink became several, Lauron yelled at Tim for sitting on his wallet and creating an uneven pelvis (let us live our poorly postured lives guys JEEZ) and we’ve been in low-key crush mode on these two ever since.
Their wedding day included:
-them saying yes to us dragging them into a random pee-filled parking garage downtown for their first look and couple’s portraits, THANKS GUYS. That garage became the site of one of my most favorite bridal portraits in history (scroll down, I’ll letcha know which one) and having that time to chill with the couple before their ceremony has quickly become one of my most favorite things about a wedding day. Do a first look, y’all. And trust us to find the spot.
-the most heartfelt and lovely vows that made me so happy to hide my tears behind a camera
-Lauron being the most expressive groom I’ve ever met and making every photo better with his 110% emotions
-Angela being kind and gracious and loving to every single human in her path, no bridezilla in sight (btw I think either bridezillas are a myth or we just have the best couples ever)
-tiptoeing around Suzallo Library taking shadowy photos while children studied for finals all around us
-a Mary Gates Hall dance party that made me realize how much I need to involve hair-swinging into my own dance moves
-us going home in a daze and being genuinely devastated that it was all over
I mean… I could go on for days about this wedding but please just look at these photos and tell me this couple wouldn’t rock your world from the first champagne at RN74 together.
(also, give this page a hot second to load… we maybe made a shitload of GIFs for this one, couldn’t help it…)
This one. THIS ONE. I love this photo and her eyes that see right into you.
