cross creek wedding ceremony: lauren & scooter

It’s hard to imagine them apart. You know that she’ll be smiling when you hear his laugh and she fits so perfectly into his arms it is obvious it’s a place made especially for her. Because they are simply one. And if you know their story it is so very easy to see why.

Because when you grow up along side the heart you love most in the world, it’s impossible not to grow together. . . . . .

Lauren and Scooter tied the knot! They had a sweet Cross Creek wedding ceremony in the chapel before an evening reception that was the perfect celebration of these two high school sweethearts. Lauren chose a traditional, timeless style for her gown, then completed her look with classic pearls and boots true to her southern roots. She looked absolutely stunning, and the soft blush hue of the bridesmaid dresses and neutral florals perfectly complemented her look and the rest of the details of the day seamlessly!

Before their first look, Scooter wore the biggest, most excited smile that only grew when he finally got to see his bride. And from that point in the day on there was just an easiness that came along with the two of them being together, which made the entire celebration feel less about the details and totally about the love that had gotten them there. It was just perfection. After seeing each other the two had a sweet ceremony before their amazing party of a reception. Then, at the end of the night, the two of them exited after running through a tunnel of sparklers.

Lauren and Scooter, thank you so much for two wonderful days with you both! We loved your engagement on the farm and were so honored to spend your best day ever by your side’s! Thank you for including us in you Cross Creek wedding ceremony and reception!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
