When we first met Christina and Tara they gave us a tour of the most beautiful garden, the place where they’d be promising themselves to each other forever. We were even more impressed with how much love and support Christina and Tara have for each other. Needless to say we’d been looking forward to capturing their wedding day for a long time.
As Christina walked down the longest aisle ever, arms tightly locked with both mother and father towards her soon to be wife, it was hard not to imagine this scene dropped right out of a movie. “The beautiful bride walks down the aisle in a pristinely manicured garden. Friends, family and the love of her life are waiting under the vine-covered gazebo to celebrate their marriage.” We’re thinking about sending this story to Hollywood.
Tears were shed as the couple of 9 years wed under the woven vines of flowers and the watchful gaze of loved ones. As Tara struggled with Christina’s ring, making her laugh, and the two shared a passionate kiss they swept back down the aisle with such joy and quickness suspected of the athletes they are, that we had to run to keep up. And that’s when the most amazing dance party began, with breaks for Tara’s oreo groom’s cake with a glass of milk and a final farewell with multiple runs back and forth under the everlasting sparklers that all made this wedding one magical day.
We truly feel honored to have been part of your amazing wedding Christina & Tara. Thank you for showing us true love and what it means to support and cherish one another throughout your lives. Cheers to your journey ahead! ~Erik & Marissa
Christina finally saw herself for the first time after getting completely dressed before walking down the aisle.
Being serenaded at the end of the night by their guests was one last surprise! “You’ve got that loving feeling…”
Thanks to everyone who made Christina & Tara’s wedding wishes come true!
