Real Wedding Wednesday: John and Lauren

View More: http://shannonmoffit.pass.us/smithweddingIf I, Tilley, am being honest…as your wedding connoisseur, I have failed you. I am realizing today that I have yet to feature a completely indoor wedding! Please accept my apology and get excited for today’s nuptials that began inside Saint Bede Catholic Church and ended inside the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg!

The day began with our bride, Lauren, getting ready with her mother and bridesmaids.

Her pink and green bouquet, jeweled ballet flats and luxurious lace veil feel so classic, yet playful. I love it.

Before she married the love of her life, Lauren had to see the first man she ever loved: her father.

She was truly a vision in her scallop edged lace gown.

I give her HUGE props on that hair piece. It contrasts perfectly with her gorgeous blonde locks.

The bridesmaids went with a classic look of dark navy, knee length dresses and pearls. And how sweet is that little flower girl?! You can tell she is pumped to have a part in the big day.

John, the groom, looks like the happiest man on earth, as one of his groomsmen straightens his bow tie. Gotta love a man in uniform…*sigh*View More: http://shannonmoffit.pass.us/smithweddingHis groomsmen wore dark grey suits with navy bow ties to mimic the bridesmaids’ dresses.

After adding a final touch (these awesome cufflinks), John was ready to pledge forever.

The wedding march began, all stood, and Lauren walked down the aisle of the beautiful church.

I can’t get over this shot. It is such a flawless moment.

Side note: If you are considering an indoor wedding, choose a location with as much natural light as possible. Your photos will look stunning and you won’t have to stress about rain (praise hands emoji).

The navy color scheme carried into the reception and was accented by these pretty silver chiavari chairs.

Each place setting was topped with a cookie. Lauren and John are my kind of people. Nom.

They ate, drank and were merry, and Captain and his lady (had to say it) lived happily ever after.
