Romantic Boho Barn Wedding – Dairyland WA

Here is the story of the wedding day of Lauren and Madison.

It’s one of the most precious and holy weddings we have shot to date, and one that we wanted to share the full story on my blog (not just the ‘pretty highlights’). Their love for each other is intimate and beautiful, and their wedding day was a celebration of covenant made before God and community. We were honored to capture the first day of a marriage that will surely change hundreds of lives.

Here are their incredible vows:
Madison, you are my best friend. I could not imagine promising my life to any other. You have my heart in every way possible. For my entire life, I promise to love you, to cherish you, to choose you and no one else. I vow to never leave you, to stand by you in the toughest of times, to delight with you and worship God and thank Him with you in the happiest of times. I am fully yours, Madison. Always, only yours, for all of my days.
Lauren, I promise to love you day in and day out. I promise to never withhold my affection from you, to hold you when you need to be comforted, to protect you and ever be by your side. I promise to hear you when you speak and always practice gentleness with you. I promise to always make life an adventure and to pursue only God’s highest for us. I will love you passionately every day of my life. You are the one – and I devote my life to being yours.

This is what Lauren had to say about the portraits shoot of the day:

“Athena took the most incredible and breathtaking photos of Madison and I this past weekend. I am completely overwhelmed with how talented and gifted she is. God has truly given her a gift of creating moments that capture who people actually are with one another, nothing felt posed, but as if she was bringing to life the love that is already there. She creates an atmosphere of peace wherever she goes and she seriously lights up the space anywhere she is… I cannot say enough how grateful I feel to have her take photos of us. The day was literally a dream. I cannot believe it was real life. Thank you so so much, Athena. You are such a blessing to everyone who has the honor to know you.”
