Lauren might just be the most beautiful bride I've ever seen. It's not because her dress is stunning (it is) or because her makeup is perfect (it is) or even because she's my cousin (yep, she is!). It's because she and Dustin had SO. MUCH. FUN. on their wedding day. Don't believe me? Scroll down and tell me if your jaw doesn't drop a little. Any bride who can get down with some arcade games and still pull off a classically formal fall affair is my kind of woman. 

Believe it or not, we created Lauren and Dustin's entire suite via email! 600 miles between us made meeting in person difficult, but Lauren gave me creative liberty and allowed me to craft something with very little direction. We ended up hitting the target on the very first proof!

I had the unique pleasure of attending this wedding, which is something I don't often get to do with my clients. Seeing the vision come together seamlessly and having a chance to witness their love and commitment in person was an experience I'll be forever grateful for. Thank you, Lauren and Dustin for inviting me to play a small role in your special day! It will be remembered for years to come.
