Lauren Lacey & Blake Austin
Photography by Ben & Kelly Photography

It didn’t take long for Lauren Lacey and Blake Austin to know their love was true. Just seven months into their relationship, Blake proposed to his bride-to-be in front of both their families at a Memorial Day barbecue; exactly one year later, the couple tied the knot over the same holiday weekend. “Everything about our day was perfect,” Lauren gushes. “But I will say that our favorite moment was when we did our ‘No First Look’ prayer.” She explains that the couple didn’t want to see each other before the wedding, but they did want to share a special moment to pray. “Our photographers positioned us on opposite sides of a wall, and we were able to hold hands and pray.” It was just the calming moment needed before Lauren walked down the aisle in front of 150 guests in a Marchesa gown.  After the ceremony, the newlyweds twirled to John Legend’s “All of Me,” for their first dance and, after the big day, headed to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, for a luxurious honeymoon.
