Lauren & Ryan | Morais Vineyards Virginia Wedding | Virginia Wedding Planner

What a wedding this one was! I can't believe it was 6 months ago already. Lauren & Ryan had the most beautiful day, with the clouds clearing hours before the ceremony even though it was calling for storms all afternoon. 

I had so much fun planning with these two and their families. They feel like friends I have had forever at this point. Several meetings over margaritas, texts about the Lilly Pulitzer Swell bottle release, and three sets of Mickey Mouse ears later, they are married. I love reliving this day through the amazing photos from Leah Adkins, and the video from Nugen...SWOON. 

I truly admire the love these two have, not only for each other, but for their family and friends as well. Lauren & Ryan let their loved ones know how special they are to them, and we felt so warm and welcome into their group. Lauren's mom even made me a cape and gave me a wand to represent the nickname I had been given- their Fairy Godmother. The feeling of sadness and excitement the day after a wedding is always there, as newlyweds partake on a great adventure but the planning has ended, it's been bittersweet ever since! 

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Milligan! Thank you for trusting us to be your wedding planners! It's a day we will never forget <3

One thing we always try to include in the timeline is a reception sneak peak, when everything is setup but untouched by guests. The perfect time for a spin around the dance floor!
