When bride Lauren described her plan for a Woodend Wedding with fiancé Will, which would include a lot of beautiful details, fun lawn games and unique elements such as a wedding cake make of goat cheese, I was so excited to see the day come together.  Lauren and Will are one of the nicest couples.  Their wedding was officiated by Will’s father and the whole day included sweet personal moments.  It was wonderful to be a part of Lauren and Will’s wedding!  The gorgeous images are all by Sweet Tea Photography, and their wedding was featured on Wedding Chicks last Fall.

I loved the dark gray suit and orange ties that Will and his groomsmen wore, perfectly accompanied with a green orchid boutonniere by Philipa Tarrant!
