We are spending our Friday snuggled up on the couch with Carson, knocking out some editing, and enjoying our second (or third 😜 ) cup of coffee! And yes, there may be a Harry Potter marathon playing in the background! As we finish up some editing, we can’t help but start reminiscing on one of the sweetest, most intimate ceremonies we have ever been apart of. Laura and Ryan’s ceremony was absolutely unforgettable!

Laura and Ryan wrote their own vows and exchanged proclamations of promises of forever to each other. There were so many moments that I was literally crying happy tears behind the table for them. It was so amazing and incredible to witness such a huge moment in their lives. We are so incredibly lucky to have the best job EVAAAA! With all of this being said, Laura and Ryan’s ceremony will for sure go down as one of our favorite ceremonies ever.

To know Laura and Ryan is to absolutely love them. They are the stinking sweetest duo. They are sweet, loving, kind, and caring. The two of them together are just adorable. We were so excited for their wedding at The Farmer and Frenchman in Henderson, KY. It was a beautiful fall day with a slight chill in the air. There was a magical, giggly energy in the air all day!

We started our day with Laura and her girls at the cabins on The Farmer and Frenchman’s property. They were the sweetest, coziest cabins and when we walked in, the girls were dancing and giggling, having the time of their lives in preparation for the big ceremony! After they were ready to go and Laura was in her magnificent dress, it was time for the first look. But, there was a lot more giggling before this first look because the groomsmen had an idea for a faux first look 😱

One of Ryan’s groomsmen put on some of Laura’s apparel. He layered on a bridal shirt, a tight little skirt, and a bridal robe. We all snuck up to barns to an oh so anxious Ryan. He was turning around to whom he thought was his beautiful bride, but his groomsman stepped behind, and tapped him on shoulder. When he turned around, everyone lost it and was cracking up laughing. It was such a fun way to kick off the day! Those belly laughs between friends was so epic!!

After the faux first look, we brought Laura out of hiding! It was obvious how excited she was to see her groom. The room was full of high spirits as Ryan turned around and as if time stood still, they fell into each other’s arms! It was their own special moment in the midst of everything going on around them during their big day! I think we will forever be huge fans of the first look for reasons like these!

We quickly jumped into bridal party photos and we were so pumped to be in the presence of their sweet pup, Zazu, who was stepping in as their ring bearer. Pups in the wedding party?!?! YES, PLEASE! Being surrounded by a laughing bridal party, pup snuggles, and alllll the love among their family and friends was magical!!

After they sealed the deal, tied the knot, and promised forever to each other, they cozied up for their sunset session out in the vineyard. It was so stinking beautiful! All around them, the sun was setting and letting off the perfect creamy, dreamy, golden, hazy light!! They were so snuggly and oh so excited to finally be husband and wife! When we finished up with their sunset session, they danced the night away with their family and friends. The whole property was engulfed in love and laughter! Laura and Ryan, we love you guys so much and can’t wait for you all to see your wedding photos! Congrats you two!!
