Lauren + Matt wedding {by liz}

So excited to have this awesomely fun wedding day up before going into the weekend! That said, I have to run out the door here in a sec for an engagement session, so for once I’m going to keep this short. I remember the general gist of Lauren’s maid of honor’s toast and I kinda loved it. Matt apparently wasn’t generally Lauren’s “type” before he became the love of her life. You can’t put love into little check boxes dammit! These two…so good together. They are always smiling, joking and enjoying each other and life every time I see them interact. They have the kind of love that makes a lot of people jealous, which in turn gives us all something to strive for in our own lives. Thanks for setting the bar high! When it comes to love, it should be up there, but still within reach. And now…photos. ;)

Matt is not only a tattoo artist (and insanely talented I may add!), but a collage artist! We made these  pieces using a couple of the photos from their engagement session.

Lauren and Matt agreed to let me use them for a little steel wool photo experiment and I promised to try not to catch them on fire. Seemed like a good trade. ;)
