Tara & Matt
Tara & Matt's Mooreland Mansion Wedding
Tara & Matt had the most incredible wedding day at the Mooreland Mansion surrounded by their closest family and friends.
When we arrived at the mansion, Tara was sitting amidst her girlfriends and family. Her hair stylist was putting the finishing touches on her beautiful updo. She was wearing the cutest white bridal set and matching robe, looking stunning as ever. Her girls would wander in and out of the room carrying mini personal fans, trying to cool off from the humid heat. The day of their wedding happen to fall during the hottest week of June, so everyone was looking for a cool place to relax and take in the day.
Tears flowed as Tara read the sweet words written in a letter from Matt. You could feel his love for her with each word she read and every tear she cried. Moments later, Tara stepped into her gorgeous fitted gown and everyone gasped at how beautiful she looked. Her Mom and Maid of Honor, Holly, helped to button the back of her dress as the rest of the bridal party looked on.
Her Father was asked to come in for a quick peek at his beautiful daughter all dressed and ready to marry her price. His expression was priceless, he was so in awe that he was afraid to hug her.
Meanwhile, Matt and his groomsmen were in the other wing getting ready. Matt stood in his bright pink socks and sandals as he put on his tux. All the guys were enjoying a cold beer and helping to iron one and other's shirts. Matt sat and read his letter from Tara and opened her gifts, one of which may or may not have included a boudoir album as a special surprise.
After he was suited up, we took him out to the shaded garden to wait for Tara to meet him for their first look. Calm as could be, he waited for her with the biggest smile across his face. When she arrived in the garden, she tiptoed down the pathway and gently took his arm. When he turned around he immediately began to smile and tell her how beautiful she looked. He took a few moments just to take it all in.
The garden was beautiful and slightly cooler so we wandered around in the shade before bringing the entire wedding party out for photos.
The ceremony was held in the bright, sunny rose garden. Tara cried as she walked down the aisle alongside her father. Matt stood with his face lit up with excitement. After the said their vows, and sealed it with the cutest kiss, they headed up to celebrate!
The whole evening was absolutely beautiful as they danced under the cafe lights on the patio. After the sun went down the temperature cooled off just as the dance floor was heating up! This group sure knows how to enjoy a good time! They all danced the entire night and everyone had a great time!
It was such a beautiful day, filled with beautiful friends and family. I am truly blessed to have been included on their wedding day! Thank you so much Tara & Matt, Congratuations!
