A Fall Southern Wedding at Serene Manor Lauren and Shawn

There are certain moments that I remember from each wedding. It’s never the same. Sometimes it’s a reaction during a First Look. Sometimes it’s the really heartfelt vows. Sometimes it’s a funny toast from the best man. For Lauren’s wedding, the moment when her dad first saw her all dressed as a bride will stick with me. Dads always have the best reactions to seeing their daughters on their wedding day! Lauren and her dad were no different. Afterwards they sat and talked about how proud he was of her, how beautiful he thought she always looked every day, and how much he liked Shawn and was ready to welcome him into the family. I loved that they actually moved to a settee and sat down to take the time to really make it matter. It wasn’t something rushed as they needed to get to the next thing on the timeline, and there was some so sincere about it.

It was my first time shooting a wedding at Serene Manor, and it’s a really peaceful bed and breakfast location. Some cooler temps and a little rain limited us from fully exploring the property for photos, but I love that Lauren and her girls came prepared with umbrella and rain boots! When you embrace what you have then you often times end up with some pretty awesome photos!

So enjoy some of my favorites from Lauren and Shawn’s Serene Manor wedding in Round Hill, VA!
