For a brief moment in my life I worked at a Starbucks with Lauren. Little did I know then that years later I would be photographing her wedding. We had a blast hanging out in Tacoma with Lauren and Austin and their party, despite the fact that it felt like it was 120 degrees. The heat didn’t seem to matter though because everyone was having such a wonderful time.
It’s no wonder that everyone was enjoying the day which felt more like a party than most weddings, everyone was so happy that these two were getting married. And for all the things brides can worry about on their big day, Lauren’s mantra was ‘I want everyone to have fun’... and we did. We had a lot of fun. And there was no ‘bride’ or ‘groom’ side since Lauren and Austin have been together since they were teenagers, everyone was there for both of them.
I would be remiss if I did not mention that of all the weddings I have done, none have stopped me in my steps at the sight of the abundance of foliage. So many flowers, it felt like a fairytale.
Congratulations my friends - let the party continue for many years to come.
