Misty, Lauren's Mom, called me on a Tuesday...I was standing in line at Costco. As I recall she left the sweetest yet most informal voicemail (that's what I love about her & their entire awesome HUGE family). Without hesitation I agreed. You see, I don't photograph a lot of weddings, but when a family who seem more like friends ask & you know it will be small, intimate, outdoors & low-key you don't say no!;)

It was a beautiful sunny day in June. They got married in La, Salle, CO...(aka: in the boondox out east).;) It was simple, southern and full of charm. I loved all the details, thought and love that went into this wedding...from the polaroid pictures of Walker & Lauren during their dating years at each guest table at the reception, to mason jars strung with twine & filled with beautiful pink hydrangeas to hand poured candles for guest favors.
Lauren's dress was my absolute favorite...just a hint of champagne pink in the tulle at the bottom...it made her feel like a princess (as you should on your wedding day). Their were subtle hints of pink throughout...including pink bowties for the guys & pink petals for the flower girls. Walker wore his military uniform per Lauren's request & he looked so dapper. I overheard a sweet conversation between just the two of them shortly after the ceremony, it went something like this, "I know it's hotter than hell, but thank you for wearing that uniform, you look soooo good in it." Hee-hee!!!
We had plans to shoot their Bride & Groom pics on an old country dirt road lined with tall cottonwood trees; though we may have killed some time looking for it...it was sooo worth the mix up! My favorite B&G pictures to date. Again...simple, but sweet. The focus right where it should be. On them. The new Mr. & Mrs. Walker Ford. I have so many favorites from their big day, but to keep things shorter around here...I'm just posting some faves. Enjoy a peek at their beautiful wedding day...
