I just love Lauren and Eric! I was really looking forward to this wedding since we took their engagements, and it really lived up to the anticipation! I flew out of Salt Lake City the night before the wedding and was able to get up nice and early and photograph the entire day starting at 5:30 A.M. It was an early start but totally worth it. The couple was LDS (or Mormon) and had the ceremony in the San Diego LDS Temple in La Jolla, California. This venue looked like and ice castle and made the beautiful, blonde bride look like Cinderella! For those who may not know, the things that take place in this temple are so sacred that not only could I not go in to take pictures, but Lauren’s family was unable to go in and witness. So we planned a little something special. The bride told me that her father had asked to drive her to the temple that morning so they could have some Father Daughter time and she would meet the groom inside. When she told me this, a light bulb went off. Instead of meeting him inside, we had Eric meet them just outside and we could have the “giving away the bride” and even “walking her down the isle” moment. I am so glad that we decided to do that because it really provided some beautiful and sweet pictures. This couple was such a pleasure to work with and I love the great wedding photography that came from their big day. Congrats to the Larsons!
