We loved photographing Lauren and Tom as they were married June 3, 2012. They chose to wed on a perfect sunny summer afternoon in the historic gardens of the Lee-Fendall House in Old Town Alexandria, Va. These college sweethearts met, dated, and fell in love at the University of Maryland. It is also the special place Tom chose to propose to Lauren on the weekend of their six-year anniversary.
This unique couple went against tradition and created a stunning bridal party. Not only did they have four bridesmaids, in a romantic bright pink, standing up for Lauren, but Tom included three “groomsladies” in addition to his groomsman. These “groomsladies” coordinated perfectly with their effeminate grey dresses and matching ties around their waist, just like Tom’s around his neck.
Lauren also included colorful touches with yellow sunflowers in their reception, all from the wedding party bouquets. She used her “something blue” with gorgeous satin heels with diamond embellishments.
The bride designed everything from the Save the Date reminder, to the guest invitation to the wedding program. Everything Lauren created reflected both her modern style and her love for the color green. It was inspiring to see the personal touches that went into their ceremony and reception details.
We also had the pleasure of photographing and designing the reception book of this happy young couple. It was a huge hit during the wedding and many guests left well-wishes inside.
We know the sky’s the limit for these two and we wish them nothing but happiness.
