Lana + Brian wedding {by kate & meredith}

Beautiful day, beautiful couple… what’s not to like?!? Lana and Brian are a fun, smart, sweet couple, so obviously in love & completely comfortable with one another that it makes them a pleasure to photograph.  First things first… this ring is a stunner.

Okay, I have to pause the blog here to talk about Brian a sec… so he wrote Lana a super sweet note for their wedding day… but he also made the paper.  From plants and flowers from all of the significant places in their lives together.  Um okay.  Take note grooms… the bar has been set.
