I have known Tara for about a year and a half now, but only met her for the first time – the day before her wedding!
We were partners in a crochet swap all through 2011 and both knew that we had found a lifelong friend because of it. When Tara asked if I would be willing to come to Canada to be her wedding photographer, I nearly squealed like a little girl! (Okay, I must admit. I did squeal like a little girl!)
To say that I feel thankful to have been there and present capture their wedding day, is a complete understatement. Really, I feel more honored than anything. Tara and Glenn trusted me, someone 652 miles away from them…someone they had never met, to come and document the most important day of their lives together.
And after spending time with them both, I feel as though I met a couple that will stand the test of time. Two people who where meant to spend their lives on this earth intertwined in each other’s fate.
I mean really, ice cream floats instead of a wedding cake! A signed canoe paddle instead of a guest book! How about a Bride and Groom in the middle of a lake on their wedding day?! They are unique in life and unique in their relationship to each other.
So here’s to you guys! Cheers, my dear friends! There was Spiderman & Mary Jane, Romeo & Juliet, Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy, and now we have Glenn & Tara.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
A few short weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing my cousin Anna’s beautiful wedding at the Rock Creek Resort in Red Lodge, MT.
What you should know though, is that she lives in Germany – and had to plan an entire wedding from 3,000 miles away!
I can’t. Even. Imagine.
Let me tell you though, she had everything down to the very last detail. It was gorgeous! Her dress. The flowers. The candelabras that sat center stage in the middle of beautifully adorned tables. The menus in both English and German. She made the most unbelievable gifts for the guests as well! Elderberry Syrup (So bright and delicious, she is right that it “Tastes like Spring”) and being very talented in pottery, she made mugs for each and every one of her guests as well. It was magical!
I had so much fun exploring the resort with them taking their photographs. Daniel is such a great man and the way that both him and Anna look at each other just goes to show that they were made to be together.
Cheers to you both! I wish you all the happiness that you both can hold
