Tamara and David tied the knot this past weekend at The Gardens at West Green, and it was absolutely beautiful!
They are SUCH a sweet couple, and when they asked me to be their wedding photographer, I couldn’t have been more excited! We got to know each other during their engagement session and Tamara’s bridal session so I felt like I was photographing my friends’ wedding!
Tamara (pronounced TAM-RUH) didn’t miss a beat, and her beautiful Badgley Mischka ($5 to anyone who can pronounce that name correctly! haha!) heels carried her throughout the day. She wore a STUNNING Essense of Australia gown from Bella Bride Boutique, and David sported a classic black tux with a black bow tie.
They looked perfect!
Their ceremony was under the large oak trees and chandeliers in The Gardens, and their reception was right across the courtyard. I rarely get to photograph outdoor receptions, so I was extra excited when I saw their beautiful setup (hello natural light!)
They danced the night away with their friends and family, and we took some epic night portraits( scroll to see more!)
Being a part of their wedding was SO much fun, and I will cherish all the memories! Happy 4 day anniversary, guys!
The girls started out the day by getting ready at La Cantera Resort, just a few minutes away from The Gardens. Confetti is always a good idea! The moment I drove up I immediately got “Father of The Bride” vibes. I love all of the greenery! Watching these two look at each other with so much love as they vowed the rest of their life was truly touching. Also, Tamara’s nose scrunches are the cutest thing ever. I noticed Tamara and David had a cigar lounge, soI thought it would be so cool to incorporate that into some shots. I had so much fun rounding the groomsmen up for their own photo op. They weren’t mad about it either. HA! This is MY FAVORITE time of the night–when I steal the bride and groom away for their night photos. I swear I have a new favorite every week!
