Oh my gosh you guys, this past November I had the greatest pleasure of shooting Lauren and Ben’s wedding back in my hometown of Allen, TX. Lauren and I have known each other since highschool so it was so great being able to catch up with her and capture this amazing day for her and Ben. They got married at Noah’s Event Center in Fairview. This place is such a wonderful little gem of a venue. Beautiful setting indoors for a wedding, and enough space to host a huge party.
Since it was the end of November, I figured we could try and find a pretty wooded area to do their bride and groom portraits as I thought it would look really pretty at that time of year. So we headed over to one of my favorite parks at the Old Allen Dam. This spot was just 10 minutes from their venue making it a perfect location to sneak off to for photos before the ceremony. I am not going to lie I just love how romantic their portraits turned out.
When we got back to the venue we headed inside to do the first look with her dad and get ready for the ceremony to start as guests were beginning to arrive. I have to say I really love a good father daughter first look. The happiness in a fathers eyes on his daughters wedding day is pure gold my friends.
Literally every moment of this day was perfect from the detail shots to the sparkler exit… take a look!
This is such a sweet and sentimental day – I also adore that last shot of yours!
