Lauren and Ryan get me every time with these posts. Just like their engagements (which you can see here and here), there was too much goodness for just one post. So, here’s part one of their ever-fabulous, sweet Spring wedding. Soft hues, romantic laces, the most perfect red and pink pops of lip color–all things perfectly soft and classic are how Lauren’s day panned out. From the quaint Marvilla Guest House where the girls got ready at, to the mossy oaks overlooking the lake, to The Lakehouse where guests sipped champagne while witnessing their vows, Lauren had the most beautiful day, right down to the straws placed in cups. And oh, how we love some pretty details around these parts. That’s a fancy way for saying me. Just me. I’ll take one order of all the details please. (:

A harpist, a BHLDN dress, and the hairstyles of her bridesmaids were just a few of my most favorites on the list. I’ll let you scroll for yourself and make your own choices about yours.

And in case you’re planning a wedding, or perhaps you just love Lauren’s planned out details, here are a few of her ever-fabulous vendors from the day…

So soft and screaming Spring, I just loved everything about Lauren and Ryan’s day. Especially the amount of time we had for their first look and bridal party photos. It was heavenly. The groomsmen may have begged to differ, but I found it just splendid. (:

And the sweet little flower girl was peeking at us all day long. I’m so glad we captured her doing it.IMG_7040 IMG_7034Hackett-18

 Note, if you are considering sparklers for your ceremony exit, I HIGHLY recommend considering rice instead. The rice made a much more dainty show on camera. I am a huge fan after Lauren and Ryan’s use of it. Stay tuned for Part II of their sweet and lovely nuptials coming later this week!
