Lancaster Wedding Photography: Lindsay and John at Lauxmont Farms Rotunda


Lindsay and John were married at the rotunda site of Lauxmont Farms in May. This location will always hold a special place in my heart because my husband and I were also married there in May of 2012. Their original plan was to be married at the sunken garden; however the forecast called for rain all day so they moved the ceremony to the rotunda. Lindsay and John were so relaxed and calm despite the last minute changes. They decided to do a first touch, which is one way to have a private moment before the ceremony without seeing one another. All of the creamy tones of the flowers, the lace of Lindsay's dress with her golden ringlets blowing in the wind and the beautiful venue overlooking the Susquehanna River complete with frolicking horses reminds me of something out of romance novel. But most importantly, I think you can tell by the looks on their faces that this day was full of joy and love. This was my first wedding of 2018 and the perfect start to wedding season.
