Lauren + Joe | A Georgia Farm Wedding

This wedding could not have been anymore like Lauren and Joe… what they mostly wanted was to pledge their lives and love to each other under “their tree” and to celebrate with friends and family.  Everything else that happened that day was simply icing on the cupcake.

Lauren and her girls welcomed Ben and myself in like we’d all been friends for ages!  Granted, I knew Lauren and a couple of the girls from high school but they’d never met Ben before… but that didn’t matter.  Everyone was family!  But that honestly just speaks to who Lauren and Joe are.  He may seem rough around the edges, but he loves Lauren to pieces and treated Ben and me like we’d been a part of his family’s life for years.  These two are genuine, down to earth, love you with every real and true bone in their body kind of people.  And as we met their friends and family, they all confirmed just that.  Everyone was so excited for these two and you could easily see it in their faces, through their tears of joy, and their cheers of happiness.

Lauren and Joe, thank you both for trusting us with your wedding day.  The weather and location could NOT have been more perfect!!  Everything was just beautiful and I’m so excited for you guys to start this part of your journey together… as husband and wife.

Joe’s wedding gift to Lauren was an extra wedding band… but he didn’t give it to her until after the ceremony.
But we were able to sneak in a few secret photos of it while she was getting ready!

Family is so important to Lauren, so to have an antique family chair, a photo of her Grandsie and a mirror belonging to her other grandmother was so special.

We met the guys before the ceremony under the tree and they brought their game (model) faces from the start!

Lauren must have told me half a dozen times before the wedding that Joe was going to be SO handsome on their wedding day.
And once she saw him, she couldn’t take her eyes off of him!

After they walked down the aisle, we hopped into Joe’s truck to take some portraits by the lake… but first, he wanted to give her his gift.
