Lauren & Troy | A Winter Wedding at Filament

Lauren & Troy are married!

Weather advisories blinked on our phones the morning of Lauren & Troy’s wedding. “Snow?”, we thought. It turns out wind – lots and lots of wind – were in the forecast for their December day. Go figure. Although the temperature was seasonably warm, the wind threw in a bitter bite. Lauren & Troy braved the cold though and it almost seemed like they were unphased by it.

These two waited a long time to wed. They made the decision last December to push their wedding back a full year. They were upset (understandable), they were patient (saintly), they are one of the most kind, caring couples that we’ve had the pleasure of working with. We even got them to step away for sunset photos and a quick “getaway” beer at the Iron Horse. It felt so good to take a breath before the official wedding began.

With so much time to plan and anticipate the entire day, Lauren & Troy said “dancing the night away with our loved ones!” was their favorite part. Zach from Milwaukee Airwaves had the Filament dance floor rocking from the very first song. It really felt good to see everyone dancing and having the best time.

As a seasoned engaged couple, we asked Lauren & Troy their advice for future couples. They said:

Keep in mind things won’t always go perfectly, but that’s okay. Go with the flow and do your best to soak in the entirety of the day. Take the time to spend a few moments here and there with just one another, even if it’s just for a quick hug! The day goes by so fast (actually the whole planning process does) so you really want to try to be as present as you can be so that you can remember all the beautiful moments!

In a few weeks, our 2021 year comes to an end and we’re sitting here thinking of how grateful we are. Lauren & Troy are some of the reasons! We’re so grateful to know these two.

Lauren & Troy, congratulations!
