Throwback to this gorgeous engagement party at the @georgepeabodylibrary designed by @bettylouevents . Friends, I was flipping through my shoots from this year and I realized that I still have *quite* a few pretty things that have been under wraps! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So keep your eyes peeled 😉😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS. I also needed to post something bright and colorful to distract me from the fact that there is SNOW in November here. Maryland, did you think you were Minnesota or something!?! 🤪❄️💦 Clearly I’m in denial. It’s fine.
Sand dunes ✔️ Slower than molasses golf cart check ✔️ Alllll the Spanish moss ✔️ Intimate back porch reception ✔️ A *banddddddd* that knew how to keep a party going (here’s looking at you @theparksbrothersband) ✔️ ... and most importantly, the *most* gracious of couples ✔️ The *perfect* end to my 2018 wedding season ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️ Needless to say, I can’t wait to share more from this sweet day!! #LaurenLovesWeddings #BaldHeadIsland A huge thanks to the vendors that made this day so special: Venue: @bhislandnc Planning: @slovesplanning Florals: @echochicblossoms Beauty: Hanna Renteria Wedding Gown: @BadgleyMischka from @BHLDN Invitation Suite: @Minted Catering: @AThymeSavor Band: @TheParksBrothersBand Cake: The Confectionary
Reasons why I'm *not mad* that this was how we spent the first few days of November... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I mean isn't it obvious?! 🐠🌴🌞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I'd take the sunshine state over this dreary Maryland weather, wouldn't you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My wish *almost* came true on Saturday night when we were pretty darn close to missing our flight. (My alter-ego Airport Lauren was freaking out!) For the record, when a snorkel-trip tells you that you'll be back at 5 o'clock, or 5:30 at the *LATEST*, what they really mean is 6:15pm. Which is totally okay before you 8pm flight right!? Arriving TO the airport 10 minutes before boarding is also acceptable, right? Thought so... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... and if you're panicking internally at that notion, YOU ARE MY PEOPLE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At any rate, I'm grateful for this guy and our last mini-vacation together before our sweet little #ReeseAdalineSwann decides to make her official appearance! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheTravelingSwanns #laurenlovestravel
🐕🐶 Denny’s face = my face when I get to relive this gorgeous wedding over again over on @stylemepretty’s front page!!! This day was a DREAM and I’m so excited that they wanted to share about it to! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, my face when I realize I got an extra hour of sleep last night! Made coming home from the sunshine state a litttttle more bearable 😉🏝🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anywho, if you’re looking for something pretty to gander at this evening on your nightly scroll (*caught ya* 😉) pop on over to the link in their profile to see more 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And last but not least, a big shoutout to the amazing vendor team that helped make their day so special — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Venue | @cbmmweddings Event Coordinator | @rebeccathomasevents Beauty | @vintageveils Invitation Design & Paper Goods | @thepleasureofyourcompany Floral Design | @blom_floral Band | Soul Expressions Wedding Gown | @annebarge from @garnishboutique Caterer | @gardenandgarnish Wedding Cake | @graulsmarket Dog Care | @fureveralways Tent Rentals | @easternshoretents #laurenlovesweddings
