Cristian awaits his first look of Lauren
Lauren Woodside and Cristian Alegre were married at the Sanders Mansion at Spring Hill Farm. Lauren attended Pacific Lutheran University and as a student had made a number of trips to Mexico and Central America to do third world development for her studies. After graduation she decide to do missionary work and and in 2006 went to Lima, Peru for Food For The Hungry, where she is today doing sustainable help for communities in public health and vaccinations. Cristian works as an accountant and met Lauren at church more than a year ago. He is now saving money and learning English with the hope of coming to the United States to attend the seminary and eventually become a pastor.
Here they are a few moments later as theysee each other for the first time dressed for the wedding. I love the look in her eyes
The Sanders Mansion at Spring Hill Farm in Auburn, WA, is a vintage house with grace, elegance and wonderful grounds and garden, perfect for a summertime outdoor wedding. July 23rd was a beautiful day but not as hot as some of the other weekends we had in July. Lauren and Cristian were delightful to photograph as they were a relaxed couple together and so obviously in love.
Here are some of the highlights from the wedding. Below the last pictures is a mini-gallery with 38 images. Hope you enjoy this glimpse for their beautiful wedding celebration.
