This was undoubtedly one of my most favorite Fall weddings of all time. Tayla and Brendan made their love for each other and for their families the main focus of the day, and the result of that was a relaxed wedding day filled with joy, laughter, hugs, and happy tears. We were so thrilled to be a part of it; it’s not a day we’ll soon forget. (Considering that it took place in 2015, and it’s now 2017 and I’m blogging it anyway, I think I’ve proven how unforgettable it truly was!!)

We started out the day in a Hotel at the Lafayette suite. Tayla’s grandfather is an incredibly talented artist, and he made her wedding jewelry. All of the photos of her getting ready with the participation of her grandparents are my favorites. I love the emotion in these photos. The jewelry itself is stunning, but the love between granddaughter and grandparents is so special. Our next stop was Karpeles Manuscript Library for the ceremony, and then on to Silo City for some wedding portraits. I’m not typically a huge fan of red bridesmaid dresses, but these colors and this location are amazing together, aren’t they?! So pretty.

After portraits at Silo City, we headed back to the Lafayette for the reception. The dance floor was packed all night, and we even got to step outside at the very end for a night shot (Ben’s favorite). It’s easy for me to say this since I was there, but I feel like the love and human connection in these images is so beautifully obvious. I can’t look at these photos without feeling grateful for what I do. To be invited into these moments is such a gift; to capture them and create heirlooms for generations of families is the highest honor. Thank you, T + B, for letting us be a part of your day!!
