Lauren and Cole’s cozy forest wedding took place at Rockmill Brewery where their closest friends and family gathered to celebrate their love with glasses of beer and warm blankets. Adam Lowe Photography brilliantly captured the essence of the day, which perfectly reflected Lauren and Cole’s relaxed and romantic relationship. We love Cole’s cool-weather groom style and Lauren’s darling take on a partial-flower crown.
Lauren and Cole
Rockmill Brewery, Lancaster, Ohio
Rockmill Brewery, with its rustic tasting room, tiny outdoor chapel, and pond with a canoe, was perfect for us. We were married on a chilly October evening at the bottom of a hill beside the chapel, surrounded by our closest friends and family. The trees around us were flooded with shades of red and orange that continued into the night by the bonfire. We wanted our day to be a reflection of us, warm and relaxed.
Right after we were pronounced husband and wife, we jumped in a golf cart and rode back up the hill. We stood at the top and watched our family and friends walk up towards us. Everyone had huge smiles (despite the fact that it started to rain a little during the ceremony). Just having that moment to ourselves and seeing everyone we loved so happy was very special. I had a couple friends tell me before the wedding to take a minute, step back, and look at everyone that came to celebrate just for the two of you. It is certainly advice I would have for future bride and grooms on their wedding day.
The Couple Recommends:
Our photographer, Adam Lowe, was fantastic. We had so much fun shooting with him on our wedding day. It was so relaxed and even though it was raining a little and cold, we had a blast! Gretel and her team from Sunny Meadows Flower Farm did a wonderful job with all of the florals. I was blown away when I saw my bridal bouquet. She really took the time to figure out what I wanted and incorporated hops into everything to keep with the brewery theme! Also, James, from Ray Ray’s gave us some the best food ever on our wedding day. He brought his smoker and filled the air with wonderful smells all day. Plus, who doesn’t want to eat barbeque in fancy clothes?
