It’s rare to find couples who have been together for 10+ years before getting married. Michael and I dated 8 years before getting married and we thought that was a long time! Curtis and Lauren put us to shame! They have waited over a decade for this day. Their relationship started when they met working at Ukrops and they have been together ever since! I loved hearing their friends and family talk about how excited they were that this day was finally here!

When you date for a decade, certain things start to happen…. like your moms may become best friends! Michael’s mom and is one of my mom’s closest friends and so I loved seeing Curtis and Lauren’s moms interact on their wedding day! They laughed together and cried together. What a gift it is for a couple’s families to love one another!

I loved the family aspect of their wedding but I also loved Lauren’s dad’s reaction when he saw her for the first time. I could tear up just thinking about it. There were so many sweet moments that happened throughout Curtis and Lauren’s day!

Not only did I love so many things about their families but I also loved Lauren’s sweet bridesmaids! They were hilarious! Their love and energy and excitement for Lauren on her wedding day was contagious!! Fun bridesmaids make the entire day fun!! So enjoy my favorite images from this Mill at Fine Creek wedding! And ps. If you saw my post on Instagram, you’ll know that Curtis and Lauren literally out ran a massive thunderstorm in order to get some extra portraits by the river!! Just another reason why we love them!
