Lauren + Edward | Elegant Blue New Prague Wedding

I love traveling to places I have never shot before for a wedding. There is something exciting about it, because you never know what awaits. Well, what awaited me in New Prague was some seriously awesome photo opportunities! We started Lauren and Edward's day at her family farm, which was bursting at the seams with picturesque locations. Their entire bridal party and family were a joy to photograph and spend the day with. There was lots of cheers, laughter and happy tears, all the way through the reception, where they really brought down the house! I've never heard so many people sing along with "Brown Eyed Girl" before. Even once I got home to start editing, I couldn't stop smiling! It was such a joyous day. Here's a peek into Lauren and Edward's day below!
