Lauren + Brandon: A Joyful Birmingham Wedding {The Barn at Shady Lane} | Wedding Planners Birmingham

When I first met Lauren, I knew right away that her day was going to be full of joy. Listening to her tell how she met Brandon and how he popped the question, she was so full of life, with a smile that can light up the room. And once she began to tell me about her wedding vision, I was smitten. These details, y'all.

Lauren and Brandon's first look was emotional and raw and full of anticipation. It truly set the tone for the rest of the day, with their excitement and joy coming through every aspect.

Lauren is one of the sweetest, most genuinely beautiful brides I have had the honor of working with. The perfect embodiment of southern, classic, and timeless.

And can we all just take a minute to take in these bridesmaid dresses? The rose gold champagne sequins, the drop cowl back. Y'ALL.

The reception was full of personal details that make my heart sing. From the toasting flutes, serving set, and silver champagne bucket that were used in their parent's weddings to the groom's perfectly Texas cake (where he's from and where they were moving post-wedding) and the sorority sing.
