I met Lauryn and her bridesmaids at her mom's house for hair and makeup.
We moved from there to Ben's grandfather's house, which was the site of all the day's festivities. They opted for a first look, so that we could get posed photos out of the way before all the guests arrived.
Their ceremony was beautiful - it reminded me a lot of my own! And it was officiated by Ben's grandfather, an amazing touch.
The rest of the day was a relaxed time with friends and family, with amazing food from Taino Smokehouse and awesome funk music.
Congratulations, Ben and Lauryn!
