Taryn & Jordan

We gathered in the dressing room.  Taryn was about to slip into her gown surrounded by her bridesmaids and mom.  The day suddenly started to feel very real.  I could sense her anxiousness growing by the moment.  She finally looked at me and said “I just need to see Jordan now!  I am ready to see him!” And just like that, the moment she saw him, he calmed the storms within her.  These two are the perfect fit together.  Although the wedding day was full of gorgeous details, there was nothing that could hold a candle to Taryn’s gorgeous smile.  These two truly enjoyed their wedding day.  The sound of Taryn’s infectious laughter would fill the room many times.  And each time she would laugh, Jordan would smile.


This was a beautiful start to our 2017 wedding season.  I am so excited to share this wedding with you all today!  Wedding guests came from all across the US including Wisconsin and Washington for their wedding.  You can tell that family was super important to them both.  Taryn shared a first look with both of her fathers as well and I don’t think there was a dry eye around!  It was a super sweet moment for sure!


Taryn and Jordan, thank you so much for trusting us to capture your wedding day!  It was such an honor to bear witness to you guys becoming husband and wife!
