Oh how God came through for Lauren and Pete’s elopement! There was a high chance of rain and it was a wedding the middle of July in Florida (local friends know how hot it is here in July) and yet, not a drop fell and it was overcast and cooler most of the day! This beautiful couple decided to have a small and intimate ceremony with only immediate family at Seasons 52 in Palm Beach. They got ready at the PGA National Resort and we did their first look and portraits around the property as well as some right outside Seasons 52! From the very beginning, we could see their amazing connection and love that they have for each other! Fun fact, Lauren is actually pregnant and they’re due date is only 2 days before ours! We know, we couldn’t believe it either and pregnancy looks AMAZING on her! And the way Pete cared for her and was watching out for her throughout the day was so sweet. We know they are going to be wonderful parents to their baby girl!
Lauren and Pete met through Lauren’s mom because her and Pete worked together for the police department. They met a few times at police events or food drives but it was very casual with just waves and hellos. But a few years later, they sat down at a baby shower they were both at and actually had a conversation, which led to their first date! This past Christmas Eve, when they arrived home from a family Christmas dinner, he convinced Lauren to open one present together that night. Little did she know that he had it all planned out and when she turned around, he was down on one knee asking her to marry him. And last weekend they officially became husband and wife in the sweetest ceremony with their family there to witness it all. We are honored and humbled that we got the chance to capture such a beautiful day for Lauren and Pete and we’re excited to share more of our favorites with you all today!
Lauren and Pete, we loved being a part of your sweet and intimate elopement! We cannot wait to see you both as parents and we know that little girl is so lucky to have you both! We wish you the best on this new journey as husband and wife (and soon new parents)! Welcome to the married club :)
