This wedding is more beautiful and special than words can describe. So much emotion fill these images. Arlina Rose did such an incredible job capturing those moments; those teary-eyed moments between the bride and her father, the bride and groom worshipping together. So beautiful. Thank you Arlina for sharing this lovely wedding with me.
Describe how you felt when you saw each other for the first time:
Lauren: I couldn't believe this day had finally come. I had never been more excited to see James and for this special day!
James: I was thinking, How beautiful, and fantastic she is, and how blessed and ready I am.
A special moment:
We scheduled 45 minutes before the ceremony to spend time with our bridesmaids and groomsmen. We had snacks and champagne, spent time telling stories and having fun, and ended the time with prayer. It was a blast and such a great opportunity to spend time with those closest to us. At the end of the reception, as people were forming the line outside leading to the "get away" car, James and I went to a private room with our immediate family to say our goodbyes and thank yous with no one else around. After the emotional day, it was special to have that moment with family.
