Ashton + Patrick’s Memorial Day weekend wedding was absolutely stunning. These two have such a genuine connection and such a JOY radiated from them on their wedding day!! Even though there was a threat of rain, the skies held off for us just long enough for their portraits and outdoor ceremony + cocktail hour!! Linwood Estate was such a beautiful venue and how AMAZING is Ashton’s backless wedding dress?! So much fun working with our talented friends Janelle on Location for beautiful hair + makeup and Willow Tree Films! Enjoy a peek into Ashton + Patrick’s gorgeous wedding day – SO much love to you both!  Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0145 Ashton Patrick Lauren Fair Photography Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0002 Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0151 Ashton Patrick Lauren Fair Photography Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0004 Ashton Patrick Lauren Fair Photography Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0007 Ashton Patrick Lauren Fair Photography Romantic Blush Spring Wedding - Lancaster PA Film Wedding Photographer_0006

My whole life, I have dreamed of visiting the incredible Cinque Terre region in northern Italy. The quaint 5 villages that make up this world heritage site are truly the most charming and breathtaking sight!! Each village has its own charms and we explored two of them, Manarola and Monterroso al Mare, with Monica + Chaz for their engagement session! Sometimes the stars align perfectly to create a dream shoot, which was what happened here! When Tim & I met with Chaz + Monica about their wedding a few months ago, Chaz mentioned that they vacation in Italy every year, and immediately we suggested meeting up while we were in Italy this summer to photograph a wedding! We were SO excited the timing worked out – these two are truly incredible and such a dream to photograph! In spite of so many travel snafus including an expired passport resulting in a day-late arrival, lost luggage, closed roads while driving to Cinque Terre and a little bit of jetlag, Chaz + Monica were still so in love, still laughing and still up for hiking around and taking the train from Manarola to Monterosso al Mare! We couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to photograph their engagement session in beautiful Cinque Terre and we can’t wait for their Maryland wedding next fall!  Cinque Terre Engagement Photographer - Monica Chaz Lauren Fair Photography_0004 A kind Italian man let us into his apartment for a few balcony shots!
