Meet Jake and Tara. They started dating in 10th grade(yes, you heard me right:) and are now happily married and wishing they were back in Aruba as we speak 😉
Tara has known for a very long time that she wanted a Winter Wonderland Wedding…and She got it! From our first consultation…I knew this was going to be a beautiful wedding with just the right touches. Tara did so much of the work herself and all of her hard work paid off! From the red shoes(*swoon) to the girls’ colorful scarves,the jingle bell exit,…right down to the beautiful snowflake ornament as a party favor for guests to enjoy on their tree! love.love.love.
Despite the frigid temps…we sure did have a great day…and dancing into the night! I must add that I always have such a fun time shooting with my dear friend, Karyn May! Thanks for braving the weather with me, Kmay, love you!
*ok…sit back and enjoy the show…I sure did have a hard time narrowing these down…so this is an extra long post!
