Lauren + Ryan ~ Acquaviva Winery Wedding Photography

This long awaited day was everything these two deserved and then some!! Their patience, kindness and humility throughout the entire last year of rescheduling and reconfiguring their wedding day did not go unnoticed – and we know that was not just for us but towards their entire vendor team! They found ways to support our businesses throughout the pandemic and were so understanding and flexible as we all navigated that new normal.

Their day finally arrived… the weather was beautiful… and these two were so ready to make it official!! You’ll see as you scroll through the photos that there was no shortage of joy, laughs, and love on this day. Everyone was just so relieved and happy to be there witnessing this love story move into its next chapter.

Lauren & Ryan ~ Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being just the best humans! 🙂 12 hours is a long coverage day, but somehow with you two – it flew by and oh my gosh – was it FUN! We absolutely loved our solo time with the two of you for portraits; laughing and just enjoying capturing the love between you!! What an honor it was to be alongside you and we hope these photos bring you back to all the love on that day!! XOXO ~ Christy & James

Just the best day!!! I can’t help but smile going through these!!
