Graduation day. A day of accomplishments, celebration of hard work and new beginnings. This was the day Tara and Matt met. What is so interesting is they met on the day they graduated from the same school, on such a monumental day. A day that holds such great meaning and promise. This day was most important though because it was the very first day that something even more significant began. Through years of work and getting to know one another and gaining life experiences they found a love and companionship that most strive to achieve. Something of respect, hard work, positivity and laughter (or as one of the bridesmaids said so well in her toast 'giggles' I just love that!). This kind of grounded love holds no bounds and can take on some of life greatest challenges. It is one that will span a life time. The two chose a destination wedding with the laid back presence both exuded and pieces of timeless elegance that wrapped around the day to give it a full embodiment of beauty. They incorporated elegant pieces of blush, ivory, crystal and a splash of silver along with a beautiful chandelier piece to set the ceremony on the beach.
I have to say personally to this couple, Tara and Matt ~ we LOVED you! You were so kind and courteous and showed so much beauty and happiness. You are the reason why we do this. We are so honored to be a part of your day.
Capturing their day was a keepsake. It started with so much joy and love ending(really just beginning) with a fun celebration full of dancing that all the family and friends will remember for years to come. Congratulations to Tara and Matt!
