Laura + Donald || june 21, 2014

We first met Laura and her mom (Marcy) during our initial consultation and were immediately drawn in by Laura’s calming personality. She knew what was important to her and had her hit list ready to go when it came to the wedding. We had six months to plan, she was at the beginning of her demanding time of work and knew that time management was at the top of the list while finding vendors that fit her style and budget. Marcy and Donald provided the perfect support to Laura during the planning and as a team they planned their dream day, and on the wedding day the love that Laura and Donald were surrounded by was so prominent!

Ryan Price captured their wedding day perfectly. I love how you can hear their laughter through the pictures. I think I could look through these all day, every day. What a beautiful summer wedding at The Greenbranch.

We asked Laura to share some words of wisdom with us and future brides.

q: What piece of advice would you give other couples currently planning their wedding?
a: Don’t rush to start planning…take your time to feel inspired before you decide on things. Make the major decisions first (dress, venue, photographer, food) and then all the little things will fall into place. And ENJOY the planning process, each moment is special because you’ll only do it once in your life.

q: What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
a: I don’t think there was one particular moment, but it was all the little moments that I will remember and cherish… and having all our friends and family in one place – I just remember the feeling of being surrounded by so much love.
