My wonderful second shooter Kristy and I had a fabulous time spending the day with this sweet couple and their delightful family and friends. After getting ready with her fun and attentive bridesmaids, Lauren and Cole met for their first look on the Princeton Campus under the beautiful Gothic arches. Their ceremony at Princeton Trinity Church was the perfect setting for this traditional couple’s vows and for Lauren’s gorgeous cathedral-length veil. A beautiful rendition of Ave Maria brought tears to some eyes, as did Lauren’s Dad’s touching toast later in the night. At their reception at the Nassau Inn, Lauren’s Dad offered a lot of great marriage advice, and I was touched by one piece so much that I shared it with my husband when I got home that night: “Always choose being together even over opportunities to make more money that require you to be apart.” Lauren’s sister and Cole’s brother gave hilarious speeches that had everyone laughing. Everyone danced the night away, and after a fabulous time with family and friends Lauren and Cole whisked away to St. Lucia to celebrate their first days together as husband and wife by soaking up some sun.
Thank you Lauren and Cole for inviting me to be a part of your gorgeous wedding day and for the super flattering review. I am honored to have been a witness to all the joy, laughter and tears!
