Matt and Stephanie McDaniel College Wedding

For those of you who got to see the sneak peek I posted of these two on Facebook, you may have noticed that I mentioned an unexpected guest came for their ceremony! A few of you have asked me about it, so I figured it was the perfect way to introduce today’s wedding.  After spending the morning photographing the guys and the girls separately, it came time for the ceremony.  Just after Matt and Stephanie had committed their vows and were about to partake in their unity event, a squirrel came running in the church and sprinted around the whole room.  The whole church entered a moment of disarray as it leaped and bounded through the aisles and past the feet of guests! For those in attendance that saw that little guy, I’m sure it’s a memorable part of Matt and Stephanie’s day!

What’s even more memorable is the way that these two look at each other.  When they’re together, there is a constant smile on their faces and they are just so comfortable together! Matt and Stephanie, it was an honor to take part in your wedding day and I’m so excited for you two to see some of my favorites!!  Happy Tuesday, friends!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

I'M LAUREN
