Tad & Lauren are MARRIED!!! Their perfect wedding day was held at one of my new favorite Bradenton venues, The Concession Golf Club. The day was filled with the perfect touches of white and sage green, gorgeous views, and a million sweet moments to remember forever.
If you read my blog post from Tad & Lauren’s engagement session, you know I absolutely adore these two!! They are seriously some of the most kind and genuine people I have ever met. I was so excited to see them again and capture their wedding day.
What I loved the most from their day, was seeing how much these two deeply love one another. Lauren and Tad chose to do a first look before the ceremony. When Tad turned around and saw her, he was completely in awe. Lauren surprised him with the cutest gift (scroll to see!).
Later in the day when it was time for the ceremony, the violinist began to play and all eyes turned to see Lauren walking down the aisle. When Tad saw his beautiful bride walking towards him, a flood of emotion came over him as he realized, this was it. This is the moment he gets to marry his best friend! The sweet tears did not stop there. As Lauren and Tad exchanged their personal vows, there was not a dry eye in the place.
After their beautiful ceremony, it was time to celebrate! They cut their beautiful cake, shared their first dance under the string lights and danced with their parents. Tad and his mom surprised everyone by breaking into “All About That Bass” halfway through their dance. It got everyone up and moving on the dance floor! The party continued on as Stereo FM Band sang all their favorites.
They ended the evening with one of my favorite things, a private last dance. Wedding days like this are a clear reminder of why I love what I do. It was such an honor to photograph Tad and Lauren’s wedding day at The Concession Golf Club. It truly was all about their love and union together. Scroll to see some of my favorite moments!
Lauren surprised Tad with the cutest gift. A dog tag for their fur-baby Tucker with his new last name!
What a cute way to include their puppy, Tucker on their wedding day!
