This past October Rodney traveled to Lakeside Hall at Fort Ritchie to photograph the wedding of Lauren and Ryan. Upon arrival at the venue both the bridesmaids and groomsmen were busy getting ready, so Rodney began documenting the morning as well as photographing the bridal details. Once everyone was ready we took the bride and groom outside for their first look! These pictures are absolutely beautiful so make sure you check them out below!
Since the bride and groom already saw each other Rodney took the remaining time prior to the ceremony to photograph the family formals as well bridal party photos! He even snapped a few photos of Lauren’s first look with her dad! Once he was finished guests began to arrive and take their places for the ceremony. As the ceremony began the family and bridal party made their way down the aisle and took their places. Lauren was then brought down the aisle by her father and given to her groom, Ryan. The officiant then led everyone in a reverse candle-lighting ceremony to signify the coming together of two families. Lauren and Ryan then said their vows, exchanged rings and shared their first kiss as husband and wife!
After the ceremony Rodney took Lauren and Ryan outside for some additional photos of just them. It was absolutely beautiful weather out for the end of fall with just a hint of winter in the air. Once these photos were capture everyone made their way inside to be announced into the reception. The reception started out with toasts to the bride and groom, which then led to their first dance as well as their parent dances. After this dinner was served, cake was cut and the dance floor flooded. Everyone was dancing and having a great time in celebration of the new couple! Lauren and Ryan are a fantastic couple and we wish then the very best!
