Real Weddings: Lauren + Sam

When Lauren and Sam were dating, they would often ride past a particular house in Gastonia, North Carolina where every time Sam too would comment “that’s my dream house.” It went on for the next 2 1/2 years until after Sam popped the question and the couple decided on an outdoor wedding with Southern Living flair. What better location than their dream home so they went to ask if they could get married in the field outside the barn. The homeowners were delighted!  Speaking of dreams, these gorgeous blooms by Carey Roberts Designs are a dream come true for me! Each and every little detail is so gorgeous and photographed beautifully by Almond Leaf Studios.
