laura + dexter | stanley's olde maple lane farm wedding

If one of your best friends meets a guy in Cuba on the first day of your vacation, exchanges numbers with him, and then finds out it's actually his last day on the resort...I'm sure you wouldn't really put too much stock in the future of that relationship. 

But as the Master of Ceremonies regaled the story of how Laura and Dexter first met, I watched France (in her lovely chocolate brown Bridesmaids dress) smile at her best friend turned Bride, and I couldn't help but feel that Laura and Dexter were meant to meet.

Their wedding day was absolutely perfect. There is no better word to describe it than that.

Love this shot of Laura with her sister Kara :)

Laura and Dexter opted for a first look, and this shot is absolutely priceless! Seconds away from seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day!

Best part of seeing each other during a first look instead of at the ceremony...? You're allowed to KISS!

Laura...you are stunning!!!

The outdoor ceremony was simply gorgeous, and the weather was perfect :)

Totally obsessed with these barn shots, Laura and Dexter are way too cute together...

Back at the reception, every single detail was chosen with care.

And the cake...I mean c'mon...have you ever seen a prettier fall-themed cake?!

And one of my FAVOURITE parts...the basket of s'mores (to be eaten at the late-night bonfire!)

This Groom had quite the personality ;)

I'll leave you with this image from their first dance...one of my faves :)

Congratulations Laura & Dexter! I hope you guys had an AMAZING 
time in LA & Vegas for the honeymoon! 

I can't thank you enough for having me witness your gorgeous wedding, xo.
