Y’all, I’ve got a BAD case of the Mondays. It’s like we had this awesome week of goofing around with 4th of July. And nowwwwww, we are back to work. Boo.


But to cheer EVERYONE up from the Monday Blues, I have super sweet new wedding photos to show you from 409 South Main.


Meet Matt and Lauren!

OMG, aren’t they super cute??


I loved Matt’s white suit. And then during the ceremony and some portraits, he wore this awesome lei, which was great contrast. I loved how they incorporated fun Hawaiian touches since that is where Matt is from. They had cute little favors and the flowers were gorgeous!!

And then there was Lauren. Like, no words. Her dress was amazinggggggggg! The criss cross back was gorgeous. The train with the buttons going all the way down. Ahhhhhhhh! It was literally a dream dress…

Before I gush about the photos, I wanted to mention a few things. Matt and Lauren did do a traditional look. This worked out well because they had a nice little cocktail hour in the downstairs area of the venue, so we had some time upstairs alone that was very warehouse-y industrial. I loved the distressed brick and the gorgeous windows!

They did have a second shooter for their wedding, which comes in super handy when you do a traditional look. They help to get some different angles of portraits since we are usually on a pretty tight timeframe for those.

And lastly, instead of a sparkler exit, we did a ribbon exit. I think these are good alternatives to sparklers, so maybe something to keep in mind if you’ve chosen a venue that is not ok with sparklers. Also, they are a lot safer if people have been drinking… 🙂

Enough chit chat. Let’s get down to business.

Here was Matt and Lauren’s wedding day through my eyes!
