Do ya’ll remember Quentin and Lauren’s mini wedding? It was an intimate and beautiful hilltop ceremony with only 8 guests. (4 of which were us from the venue!) When Covid hit, we weren’t sure what fall weddings would like. Quentin and Lauren were our first wedding back, and the first full wedding under the new pavilion!
Lauren looked absolutely stunning in her off the shoulder gown. Wait until you see the train!
Quentin came over to the cottage to see Lauren for the first time, and had the sweetest reaction. I think one of my favorite parts of their relationship is how relaxed and happy they are together. When they were apart, there were nerves and worry. As soon as they were together it all disappeared and they were at peace again.
Because it was raining off and on, we decided to execute our backup rain plan and use the hall for the ceremony. Lauren provided all the greenery, and the flowers and Josh and Deb set the hall up to make it beautiful for them. Lauren designed all the signage herself!
We had about 70 guests in the hall for this ceremony, and afterwards when they were ushered to the pavilion, I snuck a few minutes for just married portraits before Josh took over and captured the family formals.
Quentin’s favorite part : “Definitely the dances at the end of the night. Like the one in the bubbles, singing to country roads, dancing to Annie’s song. I felt like we reached the end of a long and winding road and finally breathe and start our lives together properly. ”
Lauren’s favorite part : ” I would say my favorite part was a tie between saying our vows in front of everyone we love and dancing in a circle to “Take me home country roads” at our reception”
These two have been together since they were teenagers, and it was such a blessing to watch them finally have their wedding!
After portraits, it was time to enter the reception and dance, eat and have fun! It was really an amazing moment not only seeing these two finally make it to their wedding, but also to see the pavilion in action for the first time!
We loved the black linens, and touches of gold everywhere! In one of these photos, if you look in the back you can see the tractor and a little Rowley girl! We got to spend the morning with Quentin setting all the tables and silverware. We had a blast with that.
