Lauren + Nathan | Monroe, GA Wedding | 9 Oaks Farms
July 30, 2016 was a beautiful day filled with joy! Lauren & Nathan are the type of couple you actually feel relaxed around on their own wedding day. As a photographer, this couple, venue, and happy friends felt like winning the lottery!
Shout out to my second shooter: Caroline Freeman.
I love seeing the transitions of the day - from the sweet, calm morning of the couple with their closest friends and family, to being surrounded by people who love them and want to celebrate their marriage.
Watching people come into the ceremony excited for what is about to take place is one of my favorite parts. The family and friends of the Jordan's are loving, God-fearing people who very obviously support this amazing couple!
Like I said, transitions are fun. There's an obvious difference that takes place from the ceremony to the reception - the emotions and anticipation visibly turn into joy and celebration.
Lauren & Nathan had their reception at Nine Oak Farms which is a quaint and creative wedding venue in Monroe, GA. We had so many options for backgrounds to make for some beautiful photos!
Lauren & Nathan's reception was filled with encouragement and great food! Even though it was their wedding day, you were likely to find these two pouring out love on their guests during the reception, making everyone feel truly welcome.
I'll take you behind the scenes with the photographers for a moment. At one point during the reception, Lauren and her friends from high school decided to go outside to take a photo together, and all the stars aligned. The lighting, the location, the people - it was so beautiful! These are some of my favorites from the whole day :)
