AN INTIMATE GREENHOUSE WEDDING AT BEYOND ORGANIC GROWERS BY HEYN PHOTOGRAPHY
Music has the power to connect moments and to bring people together. That’s exactly what happened in Lauren and Kyle’s case. Following the popular music festival Bamboozle, the two spent every weekend together that summer and started officially dating right before Lauren left for her sophomore fall semester. “We were inseparable,” Lauren shared. The couple had been together for almost seven years, and along the way, Lauren even teased Kyle about proposing. They were celebrating their first Christmas together in their apartment, and Kyle had wrapped an empty jewelry box, which Lauren thought was a joke. Before she knew it, Kyle was down on one knee proposing with a halo-style, emerald-cut engagement ring.
From Heyn Photography…We are so thrilled to share these photos from Lauren and Kyle’s perfect Fall wedding. They are one of our many couples who decided to have a smaller, more intimate wedding this year and have a larger reception next year. We started with our first look at Divine Park in Spring Lake. Kyle looked very dapper as he awaited his beautiful bride. The first look was so sweet and memorable. We used the colorful Fall foliage to our advantage and got the most romantic shots of our couple. We made a quick stop at the library in Spring Lake for some more photos before heading to church. Lauren and Kyle were naturals in front of the camera and really focused on each other as we snagged shot after shot of them gazing lovingly at one another.
Beyond Organic Growers wasn’t the couple’s first venue choice, but when Lauren and Kyle realized they would have to postpone the big reception they originally imagined, they decided to move forward with an intimate celebration. They knew they wanted a location that was covered but still outside for a natural and organic feel. As soon as Lauren visited Beyond Organic Growers, she fell in love. “The way the herbs and greenery engulf the greenhouse is beautiful, and it needed almost no decorating because of the natural beauty. The staff was very accommodating and made great recommendations,” Lauren raved.
Natural tones of white and green filled the venue’s greenhouse. “We did not want to take away from the beauty of the venue and kept a natural vibe,” the bride mentioned. They adorned guest tables with scattered eucalyptus and added gold accents through table numbers and charger plates.
In keeping with the organic vibe of their wedding aesthetic, Lauren and Kyle sent guests home with miniature potted succulent plants as a thank you for sharing their wedding day with them. The favors were collectively displayed on a table with a sign that read, “Take one and watch love grow.”
“Covid kind of came as a blessing in disguise. It made us think of who and what really mattered to us, and planning our mini-mony really made us embody this! As long as we were married surrounded by the people we loved, we were happy,” the couple shared.
