There is positively no such thing as too much laughter in your day...and, if Saturday's Wedding is even some-what of a reflection into Matty & Lauren's Future? These two have a PHENOMENAL life ahead of them!!

Saturday was one of those Weddings that just warms your heart & brings joy to anyone in attendance...there's no other way to describe it. Simply FUN!

I met the ladies at Jaxon Keys Winery, where they had rented a house for the Weekend. A lovely escape for these Families from the City looking to enjoy our gorgeous October in Wine Country!
Then, it was off to one our favorite local Venues - Contento Vineyards of Brutocao Cellars. After a week of heavy rain & frigid cold, this day brought a bright + sunny 81'! Other than a few heels randomly sunk in the mud, you'd have never known of the Storms passing through just 2 days earlier!
 The flawless & stunning Bride has arrived!
 This was just one of those days...you never knew what was coming...and you never got to take the smile off your face! Definitely one of my favorite Weddings to date!
 A little 'Inspiration' by Chicago quoted by the Bestman for the Grooms' Vows...I'm thinking those weren't quite the words he'd chosen himself!? 
 Matty & Lauren wanted their day to be fun & flawless...to keep it simple yet upscale...
 ...I could tell Matty was always on the look-out for what might be coming next - as he glanced over at his brother, Shawn, for a possible warning?! "-)
What a great way to keep the Guests entertained during your Photo Shoot!
While I dashed off with the Bride & Groom for a few last poses, Niels graciously put himself in charge of shooting all the GORGEOUS guests! Thank you, honey - Stunning! "-)
 What a great group of Vendors selected for this Destination Weekend! Melissa Smith is known for her superb Dinner Menu + exquisite desserts - she did not disappoint!
More bold + elegant artistry by Dandelion Floral! Yay!!
 So excited to see so many friends made the journey up to support their girl!!
 This Family is DEFINITELY into their signs...!
Which cracks me up 'cause people always comment on how many 
signs we have at our house, ourselves! "-)
Okay - I loved this young lady! She was so upbeat & energetic + sooo photogenic! 
 Apparently this young man agreed! "-)
I don't even know how to describe this young man stealing the show just before the Garter Toss...
Oompa-Loompa meets Party Rock!? Loved it!
Now this was an adorable idea! Each table had a side by side comparison of the couple through the years. A great way to showcase their journey to this point!
Matty & Lauren - - CONGRATULATIONS on your perfectly flawless day!! You guys definitely know how to throw a Party & bring a whole bunch of people together to celebrate! I wish you smiles & laughter each & every day of your eternity together...I can tell it will come easy for you! You're mature & knowledgable - easy-going & attentive...! A great mix to take with you through this Life! ENJOY!! xo
