After this boho wedding, I had a feeling a publication would love the wedding as much as I did! And I just love sharing those features here on my blog!

Lauren and Alex’s wedding day was one of my favorite summer wedding days. Between the people, the boho style, and the warm weather – I loved it! Shortly after submitting this wedding to a few publications, we found out that Modern Weddings was planning to publish the wedding online. Happy dancing! It brings me joy to see my couples so happy on their wedding days and into their marriages. So much work, time, and money was put into this wedding day… I truly believe it deserved to be shared with the world. And we are so thankful Modern Weddings was one to share it!

A couple of months later, Lauren and Alex’s wedding feature on Modern Weddings went live, and we’re all in love!
