Johnson Carriage House Wedding | Benton & Lauren
You may remember this stylish couple from their autumn engagement session in the mountains. Benton & Lauren are such a perfect pair and compliment each other so well. Plus, they’re just cool! We arrived at the lovely Johnson Carriage House to photograph what we knew would be a beautiful day. And this venue didn’t disappoint! We loved everything about this quaint horse farm. Benton & Lauren’s cocktail hour was even held in an actual horse stable! This place is beautifully rustic and as you travel deeper onto the property, the ceremony site is found perfectly tucked beyond pretty layered gardens. We adored the ivy and statues that surrounded the venue. The garden ceremony mixed with the rustic reception was a perfect blend and felt like exactly the right place for Benton & Lauren’s special day to unfold.
Documenting Lauren getting ready for her big day was a favorite moment of ours. We could feel the anticipation in the room and photographing Lauren’s grandmother, “Meme,” see her for the first time was the sweetest reaction. Sadly due to illness, Lauren’s mother, was unable to attend the wedding. So Lauren was given a special note from her mom to read before she walked down the aisle.
We love the story of how these two became a couple… Benton & Lauren met in law school on their first day at orientation (Lauren’s mother actually pointed Benton out to her) and formed an instant ‘study buddy’ friendship. Although, Benton had a different idea and wanted their friendship to be more. Luckily, fate was on his side! And we are so happy these two found one another and complete each other so well. This couple is so obviously adored by everyone who is blessed to know them! And we loved seeing their friends and family come together to celebrate this awesome day.
Benton & Lauren, we have loved working with you guys throughout your engagement and wedding day and getting to know you both as friends! You two make an amazing couple and we can’t wait to see your adventures’ together as husband & wife.
