Estancia Wedding, Part Two | Kevin and Lara

POSTED IN : Weddings
FILED UNDER :

Welcome back to the second half of this wonderful wedding with one of the sweetest couples I know. Kevin and Lara’s wedding at Estancia was so lovely in it’s simple elegance that there was quite honestly nothing that we could do wrong – it was so easy to capture the intimate love they share because they were so open and honest with us and each other and the day ran smoother than butter. A big thanks goes out to Merilee of Ever After Events for making sure every detail was in place and the day went off without a single hitch! This girl is a serious rockstar! A shout out also goes to Organic Elements for the beautiful florals and to Wayne Foster Entertainment for putting on a rockin’ dance party!

Since these two had a First Look, we were able to take a peaceful stroll through the gardens of Estancia just after the ceremony to give these two some time to connect and relax. Kevin was looking so good in his bow tie and Lara was rockin’ her Monique Lhullier gown so fabulously that our time felt nothing short of magical!

Once we captured our golden goodness in the gardens, we headed to the reception where Kevin and Lara got the chance to see the finished ballroom decor that they worked so hard on, practice their first dance, and rest before guests were seated. Can I mention that I LOVE relaxed wedding days like this? They make my heart so happy because our couples are so happy!

The napkins were all tied into bows – how adorable is that??

Each table number had a significant story or moment written on it. What a great way for guests to feel connected to the couple! And also to brag about their fabulous running accolades – these two are serious runners!
