It has been an exciting Fall for Laurel Wedding Co. For those of you who haven’t noticed, we made a big decision over the summer and moved to Mechaniscburg, PA! Moving during busy season was nothing short of an adventure, but we are SO happy with our new place, sweet new town, and plugging into the Central PA wedding scene!
In an effort to meet vendors and get to know our new “local” venues, we pulled off what I thought was impossible and just a nice idea: a styled shoot in the middle of October! Yes, you read that correctly. In the middle of busy season, we got a number of different vendors to make the time and effort to bring a timeless, elegant, beautiful Styled Shoot to life – and it was nothing short of magical!
We can’t thank EACH of the vendors who participated enough. Check them out below, and scroll through to enjoy a behind the scenes look and final products from this chilly, rainy, wonderful October day!

A recurring theme you will see in this shoot is using as much real wedding elements as possible! Starting with the weather.
It POURED the day of the shoot. We decided to do the shoot even with the rain because
rain won’t stop your vendors from making your wedding day just as fun, if not more amazingly beautiful! So why would we let it stop a shoot?
The perfume Ash used is her mom’s. Since her Mom wasn’t at the shoot to help her get ready, this gave her a sweet reminder of her!
The bowtie Mac wore is the same he wore on their wedding day.
AND, check out those gorgeous rings. Mac & Ash let us use their real rings, which as you’ll see are custom made. The gold width on Mac’s ring is the same width as Ash’s wedding band, so as he said, he will always have her with her.
Hold your tears, there’s more.
Right as we got Ash in her dress, it stopped raining. Talk about divine timing!
Mac & Ash didn’t get a First Look on their wedding day. We were more than excited to give them one as part of this shoot after one year of marriage! Their joy was absolutely contagious.
As if we weren’t already all fighting back happy tears, they wrote each other vows!
We can’t take credit for the vows, that was all Mac & Ash’s idea. Which just shows how amazing of a couple they are! We recommend vows and turning your styled shoot into a meaningful event to everyone now. Talk about #allthefeels.
Mac & Ash, you two are some of my favorite people, ever. I can’t think of a better way to conclude this blog post other than the way you two did at the shoot, with a First Dance.
Thanks to all of the amazing vendors who brought this styled shoot to life!
