Mt. Sterling Backyard Wedding- Joe and Lauren

This wedding was a first in my entire life history! I got to be photographer AND wedding guest! What an honor it was to celebrate with so many friends and be able to document such an amazing and wonderful day!

Joe has an amazing piece of land with goats, chickens, a horse, and some amazing views. It was the perfect place for him and Lauren to get married! After a few bouts of rain, the day cleared up just in time for the outdoor ceremony. We spent a little time taking photos and then we got to enjoy some home brewed beer (which was amazing), homemade pulled pork (which was also amazing), and then homemade pies and cookies (yes, also amazing.) We ended the day with a golden sunset and danced literally under the stars for the rest of the night.

Congratulations to Joe and Lauren, and thank you so much for letting me photograph this wonderful day and enjoy get to enjoy it as a guest too!
