Lauren & Brett were married at IronGate Equestrian Center in Croton, OH amongst family and friends. We met Lauren & Brett when we arrived for some super fun getting ready shots, Lauren gave us plenty of time for details and getting ready photos which is a photographers dream. She thought of everything and it made her day that much more special. We loved a guest appearance from Stark (yes, names after Tony Stark), their massive dog, and Honor, Lauren's beautiful and MASSIVE horse. Although Lauren needed to be sewn into her dress and Honor cut out of her trailer, all was as it should have been -beautiful and perfect! Lauren was STUNNING in her lace grown and Brett looked quite dapper in his chocolate brown suit -so glad you found the right color! It worked SO well and was totally worth the search. For a night cap we enjoyed some wonderful sunset photos with Lauren, Brett & Honor. Who can resist a girl and her horse! 


WORDS OF WISDOM FROM THE BRIDE

At first, selecting vendors and the venue was extremely easy. We looked at one venue, one photographer, one cake artist, one DJ, one makeup artist, one hair designer and went with the first ones we met. The dress I wore first was the dress I chose. The details in putting it all together became stressful - finding a brown for the groomsmen to complement the girls coral was difficult - we looked at four or five places before American Commodore had the right color. Who was going to transport the horse and the dog? The programs I picked were very hard to get all the details on one page. But a lot of teamwork went into getting it all done and here we are!
