Lauren & T.L.’s history, while leagues deeper and involving significantly more kisses, runs nearly as long as our history with Lauren’s mom, Ronnie.

Ronnie first came into our life in 2006, while we were photographing the wedding of super cuties Beth & Jeff. I wish we could share photos of that wedding, but it happened pre-bello blog. Ronnie was a guest at Beth & Jeff’s wedding and in her typical bubbly, uber warm way, she approached us to inquire about photographing her oldest daughter, Kim.

We instantly hit it off with Ronnie, her hubby, Frank, and, of course, Kim, although we didn’t get to meet Lauren until this past winter, when she contacted us about photographing her & T.L’s wedding.

Lauren & T.L. met in 2006, while at law school. They were fast friends, but love wasn’t immediately in the cards, at least not from Lauren’s perspective. Thankfully, T.L. was persistent…so much so that he earned the nickname “Woomaster.”  In the spring of last year, Lauren finally saw the light and realized T.L. was indeed the man for her.

” Although I tease T.L. about being the Woomaster, we both know that we almost did not end up together. The thought scares me and I am forever grateful for the turn my life took….most people in T.L.’s position would have given up on me (and us),” Lauren told us.

We’re so happy T.L. didn’t give up. Watching he & Lauren together, it’s obvious that their love was meant to be. Click HERE to see how cute they were at our love session this spring.

Lauren & T.L. said, “I do,” earlier this month at the waterside Wequassett Inn in Chatham. The wedding was scheduled for the day Hurricane Earl was supposed to make its way to the area. Thankfully, Earl was a no show. In fact, it was a picture perfect sunny day here on Cape Cod. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day…

Cosmetic Artist Kimberly Richard enhances Lauren’s already stunning good looks…

Come on now….is she crazy beautiful, or what? And how about those cute shoes. I am so loving it when brides opt for colored shoes. I don’t know why, but brightly colored shoes paired with a gorgeous white wedding dress just makes me happy!

Lauren was a vision in her Sabella Couture dress!

And T.L. was beaming before he even finished getting dressed….way to go woomaster!

A little cocktail for his boys…

I love these next two shots, most especially the way T.L. is rubbing his hands together with anticipation as he gets ready to see Lauren for the first time. We absolutely LOVE it when couples opt for the “first look” before the ceremony. It allows them to get the bulk of their photos out of the way before the ceremony starts so they can enjoy a little alone time together after the ceremony and still enjoy their cocktail hour!

And of course, it means capturing adorable moments like this…

And this…

I LOVE this photo…to me it sums up the sweet, playfulness that is Ronnie (right), Frank (left) and their fabulous family!

T.L. & his boyz…

Lovely Lauren…

Love framed…

We were up at 5AM to get to Chatham by 7:30AM, in time for our 8AM start time. The photos took place from 9:30 -10AM and it was crazy sunny, so finding some shade was a must. And, as funny as it might sound, that isn’t as easy as you might think at a beach side location. But, we found this classically Cape Cod nook and voila…

Be still my heart!

Thankfully the outdoor patio, bar & pool area weren’t completely set up because everything had been brought inside the night before in anticipation of Earl, so we were able to find this cool, uncluttered little spot for photos, which I love! Feels very Mediterranean to me.

T.L. looks on with delight as the ceremony begins and Lauren starts making the long walk down to the altar.

Frank escorts his baby girl…

At after being pronounced Mr. & Mrs., Lauren & T.L. share this beautiful moment….

Down to the dock for a few photos…

Mmmmmm…

And some of the finer details…

Is there anything more obviously joyful than a child in play? Deee-lightful!

Knowing how much she loves Cape Cod, T.L. had given Lauren this starfish necklace as a wedding gift. Awww! And, how about her gorgeous engagement ring & wedding band, with flowers by Winston Flowers.

I don’t know why, but I love this next shot of a guest’s bad a$$ tattoo during the toasts!

And, I don’t know which I love more about this next shot…their friends’ faces as they get down on it, or the lighting. But, it works for me.

T.L. & his super sweet parents, Tom & Diane, have a moment in the photobooth, which Lauren & T.L. rented from Modern Artistry as a surprise for guests. It was a huge hit!!!

While excitedly attempting to cut their beautiful cake from The Casual Gourmet, Lauren & T.L. put a little too much elbow grease in it and broke the handle off their cake knife….priceless!

Get down on it…

T.L.’s super sweet sister, Joy, blows bubbles to usher her brother & Lauren off as they board a boat to cruise away from their wedding.

What made it really fun is T.L. got out of his tux and into some jeans & a tighty whitey so he could carry Lauren through the water and into the boat. Is that romantic, or what?!

I am absolutely in LOVE with this next photo of Ronnie & Frank as they look on, watching their baby girl get carried away by the man of her dreams! It could be my favorite of the day!

Thank you Kalson & the Wequassett crew for always making our job such a pleasure. Thank you too to Beth & Jeff for inviting Ronnie & Frank to your wedding 4 years ago! Thank you Ronnie, Frank, Kim, Mark & Hadley, Diane, Tom, Joy & Jon for all being so incredibly warm & welcoming. We love you guys! But, our biggest thanks, as always, go to Lauren & T.L. You two are so good together. Watching you that day at the winery was so awesome! Your love is beautiful & inspiring and we knew your wedding would be over-the-top fun…and it was! We hope these photos serve as beautiful reminders of a picture perfect day! Big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxoxo
