Lauren called me up on a Sunday while I was on a little weekend getaway to visit my family in Atlanta. I don’t usually take business calls while I’m away— scratch that, I always take business calls and emails because I’m really bad at setting boundaries. So I picked up and instantly felt validated by my instincts. Lauren is (and this is not an overstatement) the funniest, most relatable person I have ever talked to on the phone. Naturally, I like to think we are kindred spirits. When I met Jason, he was equal to Lauren in every way. He didn’t mirror her, but fit next to her. He was exuberant, steadfast and really eloquent. I think it was a match made in bro heaven for Bill, too.
Lauren and Jason were married at Bloomsbury Farms, a serene little farm just outside of Smyrna, Tn. When we got there, the clouds were pretty ominous but the vibe was super energetic. The boys moved furniture and transported umbrellas in the midst of the downpour, while the ladies finished up the florals.
Bloomsbury Farms has these awesome little pockets of nature waiting to be discovered all over the property. There is a great little path surrounded by trees (where Jason and Lauren had their first look), a rustic patio with a huge fireplace (also doubling as a sweet rain plan strategy) and all manner of fields to romp and catch light in.
It rained all day, but Lauren and Jason were so chill; down for umbrellas and quick car transports. Nothing went as planned, but it ended up being the perfect day for these two badasses. When the reception flooded and knocked the power out, everyone used their phones to light up the dance floor. NBD.
