:: From Haley ::

Describe your wedding day in 5 words :: Unforgettable, Perfect, Emotional, Energetic, Fun

Funniest memory from the day :: Party bus before and after the reception!

Most emotional memory from the day :: There were so many emotional moments throughout the entire week! Walking down the isle, seeing DJ for the first time however takes the cake. Close seconds would be Father – Daughter first look, my grandmothers reading during our ceremony, and all of the speeches especially my dad’s.

Advice for future Brides & Grooms :: Make it a point to step aside with your partner to take the night in; the cheer, the smells, the decor, the glow, the happiness, the love…it goes by so fast! These little private moments are truly unforgettable!

Do anything differently :: 1. Try and figure out a better way to reach more of our guests. 2. Hire our awesome photographer for a long period!

:: Songs ::

First Dance :: Mean to Me – Brett Elredge

Father Daughter Dance :: Humble and Kind – Tim McGraw

Mother Son Dance:: My Wish – Rascal Flatts

I always have a second shooter with me at my weddings. 95% of the time, that shooter is the very talented Jenny Barnes. I have a second because it allows me to be in two places at once. And while I was at the ceremony site Jenny was able to capture this moment between Kate and her dad behind the scenes. Perrrrrrrfection.

Because they did a First Look, we were able to do alllllll wedding party photos before the ceremony. So afterward, I was able to steal them away for just a few minutes for their first portrait as husband and wife. It’s one of my most favorite times of the day. <3

JASON + TARA

The Vault, Columbus, Ohio

October 15, 2016

:: TARA ::
5 words for your wedding day :: Perfection, incredible, fun, emotional, classic

Funniest memory :: My nephew and nieces dancing, I still have no clue where they got those moves!

Most emotional memory :: Going up on the balcony with Jason during the reception, we snuck up there and got to spend a few moments alone overlooking all our family and friends together enjoying our day!

Advice for future Brides & Grooms :: Try not to stress about the little stuff, and remember why your having the wedding in the first place, its not about the centerpieces its about you marrying your best friend!

Do anything differently :: nothing, I couldn’t have imagined it going any differently

:: JASON ::

5 words for your wedding day :: Amazing. I’m a lucky guy.

Funniest moment :: Tara’s nephew’s dance/strut down the aisle. He was our ring-bearer and it made us all laugh which really set a tone for the night and really showed how much fun this night was going to be.

Emotional memory :: Absolutely when Tara was reading her vows to me. We wrote our own and I know how hard she worked and the thought she put into them. Nobody has ever said such amazing words about me and how she feels about me, I would lie if I said I didn’t get choked up.

Advice for future Brides & Grooms :: My best advice is to make this day about you. Do it the way you want it to be done. You will always have outside pressures to do things certain ways, but remember, this day is about you (well, let’s not lie, it’s about the bride). Remember to smile, to laugh and to take it all in. Have fun with it! Dance, drink, eat and have the time of your life.

Do anything differently :: Not a thing. This day could not have been any better. Everything was perfect, exactly what we wanted and I would not change it for the world!It’s obvious we had fun with this group.

First Dance :: My Best Friend, Tim McGraw
