It’s always an honour to feature a wedding of an industry vendor, but when it’s one as lovely as LAUREN BALINGIT it’s all the sweeter. Her fellow photographer and friend CASSIDY CARSON has done an incredible job of capturing her day… I mean these photos are just stunning! There are some really special photos of Lauren and her Dad in particular. And with the crazy talented KELLY LENARD creating her florals for the day, it’s really a dream team of vendors. Congratulations Lauren & Alex, I’m so thrilled I could feature your wedding in the MAGAZINE!
Usually it’s a wedding that follows love, but for Lauren and Alex, it was a wedding that brought them together in the first place. Alex, a musician, was playing the same apple orchard reception that Lauren, a photographer, was capturing on film. The two got chatting, and after connecting on Facebook, became inseparable. Exactly one year later, they returned to the same apple orchard, where Alex proposed – this time the wedding they were planning was theirs.
“The most memorable moment of the day for me was the few minutes leading up to the ceremony, and walking down the aisle. My Dad prayed for me, and then as we started to walk down the aisle, he began to cry and quickly put his sunglasses on to hide his tears. And then, of course, seeing my best friend at the end of the aisle… It was all very emotional!
Alex and I both love nature. He loves adventurous hiking and camping, and I spent my childhood riding and camping with our horses whenever we could. Having our wedding outdoors was something that was really important to us, and our palette followed suit with our love for neutrals complementing the light flowers and emphasising the colours of the greenery.“
