Before Tom proposed to Lauren he created an e-mail address with his last name for her…that was how certain he felt she was the "one" for him. I have to say, I find this very romantic!! Lauren accidentally stumbled upon the e-mail address one day and called her sister a little excited. Time passed before he actually asked for her parents blessing and then proposed--these two are most certainly perfect for each other.  Monica describes these two as "Tall, athletic, gorgeous and brilliant…" Pretty much right! I have been looking forward to their day for a LONG time since booking their wedding. I knew the details would be amazing with Monica Richard helping them with the design and planning of this amazing wedding experience.  She certainly left no stone unturned--which I always expect from her and her fabulous team of professionals.  Normally I have my two cents all at the beginning, but let me guide you through this amazing french provincial experience in the heart of Franklin, IN on Mimi and Papa's farm. An evening shot of Lauren and Tom--officially married in the fields…where else would you be on an Indiana summer?  The band was playing and the formalities complete and forever stashed in our memory bank with all the pretty and circumstance! Kohr_JDP01So I saw that they were putting makeup on Lauren and thought to myself, "does she even need it?".  Her freckles, that flawless skin…what a blushing and HAPPY bride she was!  The morning was a flutter of activity, but Lauren had her healthy granola parfait, Courtney (her sister), Sloan (her niece) and Cindy (her mom) there to celebrate it all.  Since she was marrying "Tom" there was no question about having a pair of Toms herself and for her bridesmaids to change into for dancing!!  The jewelry from J Crew was a gift--I would have love to have been a bridesmaid--just saying.Kohr_JDP03Kohr_JDP02 The really special thing is Lauren's purse, which her mother made by hand just for the wedding.  Oh and try not to drool, but their invitations were letter press from Pink Poppy Ink! Thank you, Bob of Indy Visual for holding the hanger for me!!  Ring shot…  Lauren is STUNNING.  Such a naturally pretty and graceful bride!!  Monique Lhuillier is lucky she had her design on Lauren! Kohr_JDP05 Kohr_JDP06 About to see dad for the first time...Kohr_JDP07 Monica's brainchild.  I will admit, sometimes I don't understand what is being communicated to me in a meeting with a florist, planner, two grandparents, a mother-of-the-bride, a tent company and a production company….but WOW.  So WOW.  Glad it all turned out well…this ceremony was PERFECTLY romantic and memorable.Kohr_JDP08 Kohr_JDP09 Pretty handsome Tom is…Kohr_JDP10 Swinging on the bench together.  I can't make this stuff up, it just happens.  They had the most amazing property for their day and it was "rented' and no other wedding had ever taken place there…just a memory to be shared only with their closest friends and family.  That is, of course, unless someday they have a beautiful daughter marry in the same place.  No pressure, but you would have the most adorable kids!!! Kohr_JDP11   Kohr_JDP13 Kohr_JDP14 Kohr_JDP15 Kohr_JDP16 Kohr_JDP17 Kohr_JDP18 See the #TommyLoLo  ?  That was their wedding hashtag!!Kohr_JDP19 Kohr_JDP20 Kohr_JDP21 Kohr_JDP22 Kohr_JDP23 Kohr_JDP24 After the ceremony there was so much happy!!!  Papa stood by his tractor for a picture with Lauren.  After 8 months of maintaining the property to perfection I think he this moment was his to own!!  Mimi's lemonade was heavenly…I might have had a cup or four.Kohr_JDP25 Kohr_JDP26 Kohr_JDP27 Kohr_JDP28 Kohr_JDP29 Kohr_JDP30 Kohr_JDP31 Kohr_JDP32 Kohr_JDP33 Kohr_JDP34 Kohr_JDP35 Kohr_JDP36 Kohr_JDP37 Bob, I'll let you comment and share your story on the image below!!!  All I have to say is, I love an adventure, even if it does mean risking my life for a shot!Kohr_JDP38 Kohr_JDP39 The toasts were thoughtful, funny and not stolen from the internet.  John Hopkins was amazing (yes, you heard that right) and Courtney is the sister I wish I had!Kohr_JDP40 Kohr_JDP41 Kohr_JDP42 Kohr_JDP43 Kohr_JDP44 Kohr_JDP45 Kohr_JDP46 Kohr_JDP47 Kohr_JDP48 The special people who made this happen: Monica Richards: Mon Amie Events Inc.
