Q: Lauren what is your favorite moment at a wedding?
A: My favorite moment during a wedding is actually a very special instant between a father and his daughter. After witnessing her bridesmaids walk down the aisle the Bride and her father in hiding are waiting for their moment. When the Brides first hears her song, the emotion that is triggered by that first note and her Father ready to relinquishing his role. For a moment, time stands still. Each time it is a different emotion. I feel so lucky to be there in that moment to witness a fathers love for his daughter.
