We’ve been looking forward just to hearing about Sean & Lauren’s big day since we read the story they submitted to the CW33’s “Perfect Proposal” contest. When we found out we would have the privilege of filming it, of course we were even more pumped. We wanted to reserve this post for highlighting their wedding day, but – very long story short – Sean & Lauren have been through more prior to getting married than some couples will go through their entire marriage. You can learn more about their story here.
We have two favorite moments from their sneak peek. One is the look on Lauren’s dad’s face when he hugs her after seeing her in her wedding dress. He just looks so genuinely happy and peaceful. His face just tells not only how much he loves Lauren, but everything he feels about Sean. Our other favorite is Lauren’s face when she walks through the chapel doors to see Sean for the first time. We just love the sigh of relief and the smile that peeks across her face. Lauren is such a kind and confident young woman but it is so sweet to see how she just melts around Sean.
Both the ceremony and reception had beautiful touches of purple and teal to go along with the peacock accents. Lauren carried a gorgeous hand-made jewelry bouquet which went perfect with her gorgeous cream gown from Demetrios. The grooms cake from Delicious Cakes was an XBox 360 (so I’m surprised Jon didn’t eat it all) and there was an awesome popcorn bar from Le’ Popcorn & Candy (which I’m surprised I didn’t eat it all). And of course props to Premiere Photography who we worked along side with all day – Kelle and Jay were so nice.
The wedding and reception were both held at Bella Sera Ranch, a new venue in Palestine, Texas. It is a great little location for a medium to small wedding. The staff were all super-friendly and they even busted out a dance for everyone at the reception.
