A Lavender + Navy Blue Spring Wedding at Union 12

Lauren + Bradley became one at Indiana’s modern wedding venues, Union 12! Their wedding day featured pops of purples, romantic wedding florals, and plenty of cherished special moments. Lauren looked stunning in one of the most classic gowns from Rebecca’s Wedding Boutique paired with her pearl shoes and jewelry, she was full of detail and romance!

Although their day was chilly, they brought all the warmth with their sweet love for one another. Brad teared up at about every single moment; the first look, seeing Lauren walk down the aisle, his last dance with mom, and the speeches…never a dull moment with the Lavy’s!

These two were the perfect couple to kick off my wedding season because as soon as I stepped foot inside the bridal suite, there was a calmness in the air and all I could see were faces with happy smiles. Once it was time to put on the dress, Lauren’s mom got teary eyed (and this was only the beginning), but the love for her daughter is truly special. They share such a wonderful bond that Lauren’s mother was her MOH! I told mom to bring on all the tears because it makes for the sweetest moments on camera.

Their ceremony was simple and sweet while their reception was full of party! From a streamer entrance and a groomsmen running in heels to a brownie serving and a choreographed dance, it was a day to remember!

Lauren + Brad,

I am so happy to kick off my wedding season with you both, you have showed me so much love and care and I couldn’t be more grateful for you guys. Your wedding day was absolutely beautiful and I am still riding on the high over here. Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your big day and having so much trust in me, your day will always be in my heart as well as both of you, congrats!!

All the faces in this image kills me…

I had told Lauren + Brad they since the sun isn’t out and we have enough portraits, we will skip sunset images…but then 30 minutes after telling them that, the sun came out…so we made a last minute decision and went out for 10 to soak up it up while we had it!

One last private dance together on their special day.
