Lauren & Leo’s divine Lakewood Ranch country club wedding

I met Lauren and Leo for the first time in person while waiting for another bride to ascend the aisle. A sweet friend was kind enough to introduce me after recommending me to photograph their special day. We share a heart for missions and sharing the love of Christ above all things. I just knew with Lauren’s kind heart and attention to planning that it would be a perfect day! Let’s just say this day truly put a smile in my heart. From the way Leo looked at Lauren as though his heart would burst out of his chest, to the way Lauren glowed with every fiber of her being, to the amazing family surrounding them, every minute of the day was full of divinity. Both the pastor and his wife led their ceremony together which i thought was particularly meaningful and wise. To be encouraged by another loving couple further down the road is a special thing. Shutout to their especially fun bridal party who planned a super fun flash mob dance to surprise the couple. Lauren’s heart for people came through as she prayed for the other single women after the bouquet toss! It is one of the coolest moments I’ve had the pleasure to experience at a wedding. I do hope you enjoy this glimpse into their special day.
