Lauren & Dave were originally planning the big “perfect” wedding with all the bridesmaids, catering, florist, and extremely large guest list. It started to not feel like them and it wasn’t a happy occasion anymore. So they cancelled everything. They decided to not think anything “wedding” for several months. After gaining good mental head-space, they planned the perfect day for THEM, an elopement with everything DIY. They wanted to spent the entire day together. Knowing this was going to be one of the best days of their lives they wanted to soak up our together time as much as possible. They invited 38 of their closest friends & family to meet them at the prairie overlook at 5:30. They told them: “We are sort of eloping but in our own town.” Just love it!

And since they were spending the whole day together, Lauren & Dave contacted Glass Jar Photography to not only photograph the day, but to capture a mini documentary of the entire day as they baked their own wedding cake – a pistachio + fig cake with cream cheese frosting which sounds amazing! Went to the courthouse to get the actual marriage license, wrote their vows & got “prairied” in the middle of the swamp at Paynes Prairie.
They wore medals as an award for finding each other!
