you know those times you can't do anything to keep the tears from flowing? this wedding was one of those times. lauren and charlie are not your typical bride and groom... well because they've been married for five years. they stole off to a courthouse and got married in front of a judge because when you know, why wait? that day, they promised each other they would celebrate in a big way some day. fast forward five years, two kids, and a few deployments later, and that day came. the day was relaxed, beautiful, and one of the most emotion-filled weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. I owe a huge shout out to my second shooter, tanis for the beautiful photos, and the support throughout the two days I was there. congratulations lauren and charlie. I know you'll be amazing together. you already are.
