Picturesque Cameron Estate Inn Wedding

Sep 16, 2021

Picturesque Cameron Estate Inn Wedding.

The title basically says it all!

It truly was a picturesque Cameron Estate Inn wedding. It was a perfect fall September day. The sun was shining. A soft cool breezy flowed in the wind. The grounds of Cameron Estate Inn were especially stunning.

It was a perfect backdrop for Lauren and Matt to say I Do!

Lauren was in the bridal suite with her mom, sister, and soon-to-be mother-in-law. We walked into tons of laughter and smiles. Lauren was already stunning with her hair and make-up done, not even changed into her wedding dress yet. A glow like no other was around her. She couldn’t believe it was finally her day!

Matt and Lauren had been together for 15 years!

Throughout the entire day, she was on the verge of tears. Happy tears, of course. She was just so excited and happy the entire time. It was finally their day! Matt was the exact same way! As soon as I came into his getting ready room, the first thing he asked was how Lauren was doing. He was so excited to see her! He knew she was going to look stunning and just couldn’t wait any longer!

Luckily, he only had to wait a couple minutes.

We took him out to the beautiful walkway that runs along the side of the Conservatory to wait for his bride. Lauren and I made our way to the location, and all she could say was how excited she was for this moment. It was finally time to officially get the day started. I fluffed her dressed behind her and took my spot off to the side. Lauren, with her dress beautifully flowing behind her, made her way down the walkway. The biggest smile on her face!

Only a few feet away stood the man she was about to marry.

Then as she got about a foot away, she paused and said his name. It was finally time for Matt to see his bride! He turned around, and happiness just exuded from him face. She was gorgeous! Tears came to both of their eyes. It was such a special and meaningful moment for the two of them. The past fifteen years was so worth it. Every memory made. Every moment cherished. Led up to this day! To this moment!

It was finally their Cameron Estate Inn wedding day!

The rest of the day was pure happiness. Completely engulfed in each other’s eyes. Lauren and Matt said their I Dos and officially became husband and wife! They couldn’t stop looking at each other or holding each other’s hand. It was so sweet to watch and photograph. Looking back on these photos you can just see the love between them, every single moment of the day! I wish you two so much happiness, but a part of me knows, that won’t be hard for you two and your marriage!

It literally surrounds you!

I am so glad we met each other at the Cameron Estate bridal show! Lauren, you were filled with so much joy and happiness. I can still remember chatting with you on that day! Thank you so much for then choosing me as your photographer. It has been a blessing to get to know you to and be a part of this journey! Always know you can reach out at any time! You know I, of course, want to stay connected!! I hope these images help you relive the highlights of the day over and over again! I know it has for me!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
