When it came time to choose  a location for  Lauren’s bridal portrait  she and her mom wanted to not only go somewhere beautiful but they wanted a place that had some meaning to the both of them. Lauren’s mom is a Duke Alum and used to bring Lauren for walks and photos in Duke Gardens when she was a little girl – Looking back on this, it was an easy choice for them to agree that Duke Gardens would be the perfect sentimental location for a fun afternoon! Lauren made one GORGEOUS bride. 

Lauren and Steven are high school sweethearts and were married this past Saturday at The Pointe , a beautiful lake front venue in North Carolina. Here is a sneak peek of their first moments as  husband and wife. Congratulations, Lauren and Steven! Enjoy Mexico!
