lauren and tate are two of the most fun-loving people i’ve ever met, and their ten mile station wedding was a perfect reflection of their joyful relationship! laughter filled the whole day, and they even reacted with humor when they were forced to move their mountain view wedding indoors due to rain. for example, when tate began his vows after moving inside, he started with, “they really should rename this place ‘ten smile station!’” everyone erupted in laughter, and the mood was immediately lightened to what it was when the sun was shining. best wishes for a long and laughter-filled marriage to this incredible couple!
tate included john 15:9 when he proposed to lauren…
one of my favorite moments in the day was the first look. this event has become fairly common, and i really recommend it as a way to calm nerves before couples walk down the aisle – but lauren and tate took it to a whole new level. in addition to taking time together to pray over their marriage, they also exchanged private vows – so sweet!
the train of lauren’s dress was actually stuck in the locked doors behind her, but you’d never know from the smile on her face!
lauren’s sister snuck a little note into tate’s hand as she greeted him. i really want to know what it said!
lauren and tate stamped a bible during their ceremony – such a wonderful idea.
…and of course every fourth of july wedding needs some american pride!
what guests thought was going to be the garter toss became a flash mob dance to five different michael jackson songs!
