Lucas & Lauren’s Rustic Celebration

We end this week with Lucas and Lauren’s simple, rustic wedding. They said their vows on a hot summer’s day in front of 300 guests. Lucas opted for a relaxed informal affair and made many of the decorations themselves.
We love Lauren’s beautiful lace dress and her summery pink bouquet. The bridal party also caught our eye, we’re loving the chic mismatched bridesmaid dresses. Aubrey Marie Photography captured these beautiful images.

Their Story

We knew each other a year before we started dating. We were friends and Lucas asked me on our first date March 2011 and we officially began dating June 4, 2011. Lucas proposed on New Year’s Eve and the rest is history. Lucas makes me so happy! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect husband. We love to laugh, watch movies, and cook together.

What was the highlight of your day?

The highlight for me was when I was just about to walk down the aisle, making my way around the corner and saw for the first time all of the decorations and all of our friends and family standing and waiting for me. Lucas was at the front waiting for me with a big smile on his face. It hit me that everything had come together perfectly and I was about to marry my best friend. It was a great feeling.

Any advice for couples planning their wedding?

Don’t stress. Easier said than done, but in the end everything will get done and it may not go exactly like you planned but at the end of the day you are married to the love of your life.
