Here is a little mid-week treat for you, straight from Memphis, Tennessee! Lauren, Rob and their close family and friends came from all the way across the country for a true wine county, California Wedding. Lauren's in-laws, Toni and Wayne, planned the rehearsal dinner and naturally wanted to document every bit of it. I was so excited when they asked me to photograph Lauren and Rob's rehearsal dinner because it gave me a chance to meet not only the gorgeous couple, but their families as well! By the wedding day, everyone was already practiced with being behind the camera.
The rehearsal dinner was held at the beautiful Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel in Santa Rosa. As a surprise, Dad decided to bring a little bit of their hometown history to California by hiring an Elvis impersonator, pink Cadillac and multiple outfit changes included! He was singing and dancing with all of the guests, making for some really fun photos! Also, I have to mention Lauren's dress! It is actually the same dress that her mother wore at her wedding! How great is that? And it looked fantastic on Lauren!
As you know, I am a sucker for the heart-felt, sentimental moments and so naturally I can't help but mention all the tears of joy shed by everyone. A couple of the bridesmaids had a particularly tearful speech that was so incredibly sweet!
It was a truly amazing unforgettable evening! Congratulations to Lauren and Rob!
