{eternity::jake & tara}

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!

Jake and Tara!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!  I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!!

blessings,

kellyb.
