A backyard wedding was the perfect touch to their wedding day. The textures, the atmosphere, and the history provided the perfect place. Taylor, being the creative beast she is, created most everything you see in these photos. I am most certain that together, these two can create most anything they want. They filled our hearts with their laughter and genuine love. We are forever grateful to have been a part of their wedding day and even more, to call them friends.
Taylor + James decided to do a First Look and exchange their handmade gifts.
They ended up getting the same gift. A handmade box. James made one for future keepsakes and Taylor’s was filled with past ones.
Taylor’s box was full of sentimental goodies from their relationship.
Such a beautiful bride.
Taylor wrote her vows in this beautiful journal.
And this is the beautiful Ring Bearer, Helmi.
Helmi loves her dad so much. She was so happy that day.
Taylor is SO close to her baby sister. She couldn’t make it due to distance, so she joined last minute via Skype.
I think this was my favorite moment of the day. Helmi was so happy!
The whole silly crew!
And then there was this wedding cake…
The protected onlookers…
And last but not least, it would’t be a celebration for Tay without a little Whiskey.
