The most anticipated event of the summer:
Lauren and Chris’s wedding day.
It was finally upon us.
We readied at the Hotel Blackhawk
The Bride to be “Before”
(she may kill me for this but I think she is beautiful with or without makeup)
mmmmm mimosa, 🙂 (Thanks Ginny)
They were adorable
No detail was overlooked. The day was to be a flawlessly beautiful occasion. No one ever saw it coming, after a drought filled summer. But sure enough, the day of the wedding brought with it massive storms/tornados/power outages.
All around fun things for fancy ladies with professional hair and makeup transporting from the hotel to the powerless church.
Lauren donned her dress in the dark fitting room of the church, while we all tried to fan her with whatever we could find. At one point she was fanning herself with a spatula from the church kitchen.
But power or no, she was beautiful and the ceremony, albeit hot, was perfect.
The beautiful chapel was filled wih stain glass windows which let in the perfect amount of natural light. And the wedding proceeded, on time. The ceremony was beautiful and all the boob/back/forehead sweat couldn’t change that. And just as the precessional was exiting down the center isle, the power came back on! Yay, time to dry off before pictures!

Aren’t they cute?
yeah, who didn’t see this coming?
seriously, he never stopped dancing
and he was this serious the whole time
What a perfect day. I was honored to be Lauren’s maid of honor.
Congrats Lauren and Chris! Thank you for including all of us in some special way on your wedding day. We had such a great time! We wish you the best in love and in life.
What a beautiful couple!
(I forgot to even mention the dress, is it not stunning?! She had the strap added. It was the perfect touch. What a gorgeous day filled with gorgeous people!)
