Lauren + Jacob | Johanna House Wedding

Lauren and Jacob (or most people call him “Fred”) had the most perfect Christmas Winter wedding that I could have imagined. I usually don’t work in December, but I am so glad that I took this wedding. Not only are these two families just the sweetest, kindest people ever, but their whole day was an absolute joy to photograph!  The “Johanna House” provided a wonderfully beautiful, simple backdrop for their day and between it and the gorgeous white cotton field in front- it just made their images stunning!

I kinda stole this greenery from some of the outdoor decorations (sorry Ozzy!) but I just couldn’t help it- haha! It was so perfectly suited for their details and invitations, and just screamed “Christmas” to me.

I absolutely adored the bold, red lip that Lauren wore (and wore and wore all day long- thanks to lip sense and her sister Tiffani!)

While the interior of the house was a tad dark, this gorgeous window light gave us just what we needed for some stunning images of Lauren getting dressed.

And hello wonderful cotton! Most cotton fields in our area have long since been cut, but Lauren’s Father called in a special favor to the farmer who owned these fields and asked him to please leave the cotton until after the wedding….and he did! Needless to say I was one happy girl!!!

One last hug from Daddy before walking down the aisle.

Lauren’s parents surprised her with a ride to her ceremony in this gorgeous old car- how beautiful is this car…and that Bride….and that cotton????? I could hardly stand it!

And now for MORE pictures in the cotton! Im sure this whole wedding party was really ready for me to get over the cotton already. hahahaha

I seriously could have stayed in this field and shot until dark….but there was a party waiting on us, so I had to shoot quickly (but not too quickly!)

Had to use that old car for just a few more night time shots…… and how perfect was Lauren’s fur to complete this “look”???
