Lauren and Mac’s wedding day was full of many “firsts” for me. It was my first time at Raspberry Plain Manor, my first time shooting a bride and groom whom I hadn’t met before their wedding day, and my first time shooting in the snow. Let me start by saying just how incredible this wedding venue is. I was in photographer heaven! From the beautiful exterior, to the dreamiest bridal suite and an indoor ceremony/reception space flooding with natural light, there was so much to take in! This venue looked especially magical in the snow!
As I mentioned, this was a rare and unique situation for me to not meet my couples prior to their wedding day. I almost always have the opportunity to meet my couples at their engagement session; however, conflicted schedules prevented us from all getting together to meet in person. After our email correspondences and phone calls over the year, I knew Lauren was so lovely and kind, but I still was nervous to meet Lauren and Mac! Just as I suspected, we hit it off the moment we met and felt like old friends. Lauren and Mac were surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family, that there was so much excitement and energy flowing throughout the entire day. You know there is sure to be vibes when you’ve got a bridal party of 23!
My favorite part of the day was getting to know Lauren and Mac and watch them become husband and wife. There was so much anticipation for Lauren to walk down the aisle, for Mac to see his bride, and for these two to commit their lives to each other. One word I would use to describe their relationship is tenderhearted. Mac has a lightheartedness, comedic, fun-loving personality which pairs perfectly with Lauren who has such a warm, gracious, and genuine heart. I am so grateful to have played a small part in their big day and capture some beautiful moments and memories for them. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Buben!!
