Lauren and Craig first got in front of our cameras during an engagement session in Downtown Frederick. We started at Gravel & Grind, a fantastic coffee shop just across the street from our studio, and we ended at Gambrill State Park, just outside of the city.
At the end of April, it was time for their wedding, our first for the year 2017! Lauren and the other ladies spent time getting ready at her mother’s home on a lovely spring day.
Franklin the dog was looking sharp for the big day!
We are grateful to Amanda Smith of Studio She, who introduced Lauren to us. Amanda was a bridesmaid in 2 prior Spence Photo weddings and created the hairstyles for this wedding!
Heather Rea Style Studio handled makeup duties.
The ceremony took place at St. Paul Catholic Church in Damascus.
Following the ceremony, everyone headed north to Catoctin Hall at Musket Ridge in Myersville.
After some portraits outdoors, it was time to get inside to the celebration!
The first dance as husband and wife was full of surprises. Those dancing lessons really paid off!
The crowd was kept on its toes by DJ Scott West.
Beautiful and tasty cakes by Lilly Magilly’s Cupcakery.
When the fun was over, Lauren and Craig were whisked away, with a few cupcakes for the road… Congratulations and best wishes for many happy years together!
