Lauren & Greg’s Wedding Day Highlights
Yes yes yes there was the most perfect sunset for Lauren and Greg’s wedding day at Olde Homestead Golf Club. You have to see this!!!!
You might remember Lauren and Greg from their totally epic Poconos Raceway Engagement Session – and their wedding day was just as full of awesome locations at Olde Homestead (though we may have traded empty raceway stands for open fields of green). Their event went down at the country style Carriage House which showcases views of the entire Olde Homestead Golf Course. Their evening ceremony was held at the Skyline Terrace pergola which also provide amazing views of the entire gold course. Just wow!
Getting Lauren and her ladies all dolled up was Ginny from the Hair Angel. Lauren did her own make-up sitting at her Mom’s dinning room table – a purely calm moment for this bride. It was great for us to start our day at Lauren’s Mom’s house. We got to meet the ladies of the bridal party, and once we met them, we knew we were going to be in for a fun party later at Olde Homestead! The ladies packed away their yellow David’s Bridal gowns and the bride tucked away her Alfred Angelo wedding dress (complete with a surprise sewn into the dress – stay tuned, I’ll tell you about it!), and they zoomed off to Olde Homestead to finalize the reception decorations, get themselves dressed, and get Lauren ready for her first look with Greg.
They were greeted by the stunning florals by Garden of Eden Florist. Pops of yellows and pinks complimented the white daisies – perfect for a summer wedding! Once Lauren was dressed, we drove down the road to Olde Homestead’s Corn Crib for her first look with Greg. Greg looked sharp in his JC Penney suit – I absolutely adore his grey and yellow plaid tie. With the bridal party at a distance, Lauren and Greg shared a quiet and almost private first look together. I think we might have even caught a hint of a smile from the very stoic groom! Lauren smiled and teared up for the two of them, and once they were done sharing their first look, we moved right in to doing photos with their bridal party and their bride and groom portraits.
We may or may not have taken a few shots on the active golf course – I do apologize for any near misses we may or may not have almost had with any golf balls (thanks for being patient with us, Olde Homestead coordinator Hilary!). But on the bright side, Greg got to drive a golf cart for the first time AND we got some ah-mazing photos on the crest of the hill with some awesome June blue sky!
“I-do’s”/”do you’s” were officiated by the bride’s Uncle Tom. Lauren’s Mom escorted her down the grassy aisle. Their Kay Jeweler rings were exchanged and Lauren and Greg were officially married! Now to party! Dice Productionz and Dave from Mix Master Disc Jockeys made sure guests enjoyed the reception space with uplighting and some awesome party tunes. 2 Little Piggys BBQ and Catering made sure guests were well fed with some delicious BBQ courses. Merry’s Custom Cakes Bakery & Design Studio really topped off the food options with a yummy and beautiful wedding cake (just ask Greg, I think he wore some of it! And maybe Lauren too). During the water toss Lauren revealed to Greg the two blue hearts she had sewn in the hem of her wedding dress, just hidden from sight unless you knew to look or ask about them. Such an amazing tribute and memory for the newlyweds.
The newlyweds shared a sparkler exit at the end of the night with all of their guests. Just before we did this, we took the couple out for a fiery sunset over the mountains. Such perfect way to end the night. Ready to see the highlights? Click play!!!
