From a chance meeting to together forever! Lauren and Eric met one faithful night in Deep Ellum while Eric was in town for a bachelor party. Eric lived in Oklahoma and as destiny would have it, the two of them felt an instant spark when they connected. As the night ended and they parted ways, the two of them stayed up talking on the phone until 5:30am. Eric promised Lauren that he would come to Texas again just to see her and needless to say, Eric is a man of his word!
I arrived at the Hidden Pines venue in Hurst a little earlier than usual to checkout the location. I had photographed here 2 years ago and was determined to do a LOT better than I did in the past. I walked around, found great spots for pictures and made notes before going inside to check up on Lauren and Eric.
Lauren and her girls were sipping champagne and sharing funny memories from Lauren’s bachelorette party. Eric and his boys were watching the football game while enjoying their beers. When it came time for their first look, I brought Eric outside and put him in position. I asked him how he was feeling and he told me that he felt prepared up until this very moment. I playfully reassured him that as long as he says “I do” everything will be fine.
With Eric in place, Lauren went over and tapped him on his shoulder. His worries melted away instantly when he saw his soon-to-be-wife Lauren and the two of them enjoyed their intimate moment. After their loving embrace, we had the PERFECT lighting for their portrait session! Lauren and Eric enjoyed every second together and their smiles seemed to get bigger and bigger as the portrait session went on. 🥰
With their hearts full with love and some amazing portraits, it was time for their ceremony to make things official! Friends and family surrounded them as they tied the knot and after the formal photos, Lauren and Eric were ready to enjoy their reception and the rest of their night!
As Mr. and Mrs. Demand are enjoying their honeymoon in Italy, I want to congratulate them on their wedding and marriage! Lauren and Eric, as y’all begin the next chapter of their lives as a family, I want to wish y’all a lifetime of love and happiness! ❤🎊
