Laura and Brent married


After the first time I talked with Laura over the phone, I knew that her wedding day was going to be special.  I met her early at her parents house.  They have several acres of beautiful fall colors right behind their house.

We hung her dress on her parents new back patio.  Her mom was pretty proud of it!  And one of her bridesmaids bought her this hanger that has "Mrs. Laura Long" bent in the wire.

Laura let me know that her "something new" was her kate spade shoes, her "something blue" was her dad's hankie, her "something old" was her grandmother's ring she wore as a child, and her "something borrowed" was her mother's colors from her wedding years ago.

Here she is getting ready with her bridesmaids.  They told me they were all high school friends.

Just last July, her parents had a litter of kittens in their backyard.  These 2 cuties are Laura and Brent's.

We headed out to the backyard and had tons of great photo's, with this time of year, the colors are so vibrant.  Fall weddings are so pretty :)

After we finished with the girls, we went to the church and got a few shots of the guys.

I shot this wedding with Tiffany.  She shot this of the girls waiting for the ceremony to start.

Brent and Laura were so excited to be married.  I love the look that they both had when they saw each other for the first time.  So absolutely priceless.  I can just imaging that they will look back at these next two photo's hundreds of time in the next decades to come and remember the feeling they had that day.

After the ceremony, we went to the Copper Top golf course for some artistic shots. 

While I was shooting these group shots, Tiffany was able to zoom in and capture these close up ones of them.  I love them!

Almost everyone happened to have their date with them!

These next ones with the leaves in the background are my favorite.  I hope you(Brent and Laura) like them too.  They told me that Fall was their favorite time of year.  They didn't want it to be too hot, and they really had a perfect day.  You know the day you feel the crispness of fall, but the sun is out and still warming you?  It was a perfect day.

They had a sweet and simple reception... but full of love for each other, friends and family.

It was great getting to know you guys.  Your day was precious.
