Lauren + Brendon's Wedding | Glamping at Rockwood Manor | Potomac, MD
Lauren and Brendon decided that they wanted a "destination wedding" close to home; they wanted everyone to be together, in one place, for the entire weekend without having to travel
Lauren and Sara have been best friends since they were six years old. When Brendon asked Lauren to marry him, Sara was obviously not going to be the one photographing the big day - she was Lauren's maid of honor!
Brendon and Lauren met through a friend a few years before they started dating. When they reconnected, they began to see each other in a "different light"
Lauren and Brendon's wedding was highly personal and family-oriented - that's just how these two are! They value family and friends above all other things; that's one of the reasons that they wanted their guests to have a place to sleep and enjoy the weekend at Rockwood Manor.
Lauren's mother, being a creative woman who has a love of all things DIY, put together most florals, made the necklaces that Lauren's wedding party wore, and tons of gorgeous decor. Lauren also loves DIY and creates tons of personal gifts for her friend and family. For her wedding party, she created beautiful hangers using paper that she'd found at one of her favorite stores. The girls were allowed to choose any dress that they wanted as long as it was navy blue, which came together perfectly!
Lauren loved fans growing up, so Sara gave her a silk fan to keep her cool and gave the wedding party white fans - plus, it was pretty hot!
Lauren's dad chose four ties to lend Brendon for the big day. Lauren's family guessed which he would choose; Brendon chose the one that everyone guessed he would - so cute!
After the ceremony, the wedding parties surprised the newlyweds by tossing eco-friendly confetti in the air just before the recessional
Wedding cake topper 65 years old and belonged to Lauren's grandparents. There was a photo of her grandparents from their wedding day on the dessert table
We are so over-the-moon happy for these two amazing people and cannot wait to be part of their life-long adventure! <3
