Lauren and Ryan’s wedding was over a year ago but I still remember it like it was yesterday! Lauren and Ryan are dear friends of mine from Indiana University, and I was so honored and excited to be a part of their wedding day.

Lauren and Ryan’s wedding took place right on her grandparents’ property in Westfield, Indiana. Lauren always dreamed of having her wedding at this location so the personal ties made the wedding weekend even more special. Lauren and Ryan’s families showed so much love and support during the wedding planning process and wedding day itself. Lauren’s uncles designed the menu, and her father was up bright and early to be a part of the set-up process.

The ceremony took place outdoors right next to her grandparents’ home. Lauren pulled up to the ceremony site with her dad in her grandfather’s vintage red Lincoln. The look on Ryan’s face when he first laid eyes on his soon-to-be new wife was a moment I will never forget!

After the ceremony, guests gathered around the pool and enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before heading into the tent for dinner and dancing. The tent was absolutely stunning, decked out in elegant white, soft grays, and accents of peach and green.

It was a perfect wedding day from start to finish, and I wish Lauren and Ryan many, many years of love and happiness! I am so lucky and excited to be a part of the maid of honor’s wedding this August and the wedding of another bridesmaid’s brother in May!
