Lauren and Daymeon’s lovely wedding at Explore Park in Roanoke, Virginia was a beautiful day with such a great couple. The weather was warm, sunny, and perfect. I arrived with Jacob at Explore Park in the morning to take location shots and get detail pictures for Lauren and Daymeon. Lauren had her details and her dress there waiting for me, so I was able to get some beautiful pictures of the details that were unique to their day. Their wedding at Explore Park was decorated beautifully with dusty rose pink and white accents. So feminine and classy, which I loved! Lauren decided to do one of my favorite things to help make her wedding day go smoothly, and that was to have us take pictures before the wedding ceremony so there was more time before their reception for their bride and groom portraits. After the guys were ready and arrived to the venue, we got some photos with Daymeon and his groomsmen. A space intentionally left in one of the pictures as well as a spot in the groomsmen lineup during the ceremony, for his close friend, Andrew, who passed away before their wedding. It was a wonderful way to have him forever be remembered. After the guys went into hiding, I got to take pictures of Lauren and her bridesmaids and with her parents, too. Their ceremony was beautiful, with Lauren and Daymeon being married on the porch of the beautiful old house on the property of Explore Park. After taking some pictures with the bridal party together as a whole and taking all the family formal pictures, we made our way out to get Lauren and Daymeon’s couple’s portraits. It was so nostalgic walking around Explore Park because we took some pictures at the very same locations we took their engagement photos! It was great recreating some of their photos and getting some amazing pictures on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s no secret that the couple’s portraits are some of my favorite pictures of the day to get. With the addition of mountain views and beautiful golden light, I was practically in heaven. After taking pictures for an hour, it was time for the wedding reception! It’s always such a fun part of the day and Lauren and Daymeon’s families did not disappoint when it came to getting some fun dancing pictures! The cake smash was so entertaining and fun, too. All in all, Lauren and Daymeon’s wedding at Explore Park was amazing. Jacob and I loved being there for it and photographing all of their special moments! Congratulations, to Lauren and Daymeon!
