Claxton Farm Wedding: L + M

Updated: Mar 6

If I could describe Lauren and Matt’s wedding day at Claxton Farm in 3 words it would be: Fun, beautiful, and family! From beginning to end, their wedding was a non-stop joy ride! Spirits were high as the day previously called for an 80% chance of rain all day and as the day progressed it was obvious that they weren’t going to get a drop! The low lying clouds rolled in and instead of making everything a foggy mess, they sat atop the local landscape and surrounded their venue with a romantic ambience that one only dreams of for their big day! Their family and friends were by far one of the most fun groups we’ve had the pleasures of working with on a wedding day! Even the groomsmen were stoked about the photos if that’s any indication of the good vibes present on this day! The afternoon was filled with moments of joy and the evening was filled with a dance floor that never saw a slow down!

By far one of our favorite moments of Lauren and Matt’s wedding was their first dance! The unique set up at Claxton allows the bride and groom to dance outside underneath the romance of the drop lights, while the open barn doors allow the guests to watch it all from the comfort of inside the reception space! It allows the beautiful venue to serve as part of the backdrop for the their dance which is completely unlike most first dances.

Beyond all of this, Matt and Lauren are 2 of those people you can’t help but love! I’m pretty sure I could’ve talked sports with Matt and his groomsmen the entire weekend and Lauren being a veterinarian pretty much makes her the coolest person ever in Jenny’s eyes ;) I seriously think we ran into them twice after the wedding within a couple of days and each time it was like seeing old friends we haven’t seen in months! It was one of those connections we’re so glad we made, one of those stories we were blessed to be a part of, and one that we certainly hope you enjoy following along on!
