Congratulations Lauren and Reid on their gorgeous July wedding!!! All the details were so beautiful and just perfect for this couple! And Hermitage made a great backdrop to their whole day.
We seriously could NOT have asked for more perfect weather either!! In the midst of some of the warmest weather of the year... (90+ for like two weeks), we had an amazing 79 degree day!! It was fabulous! Especially for this highly pregnant photographer shooting her last wedding before baby at 37 weeks!
When I asked these two what made them work well together, they said that their mutual love of football is one of the first things that brought them together! He’s a huge sports nerd and she's passionate about their football teams, and during football season, this made for great conversation. He intentionally put his back to sports games on TVs on their first date, and in doing so, put her facing her team (Virginia Tech Hokies) playing. "Needless to say – we both watched the game on our first date," said Lauren, "and another game on our 3rd when he met some of my friends. Generally, what makes us work is that we each have qualities and strengths that help balance the other person out. We keep the other person smiling with our inside jokes and general goofiness. We understand the importance of continuously dating and always make time to surprise the other with a date night or something special. We’re always there for each other and love each other for who we are as individuals."
