For the introduction to me getting acquainted with Tara and Eric and Emily Rae, please check out the sneak preview post!
Tara and Eric were married at the Grand Volute Ballrooms in Lowell, Michigan, on May 19, 2012. The sun was streaming through the doors and windows of the Grand Volute illuminating the beautiful staircase where they were about pledge their love to each other in front of family and friends. They complement each other so well and love with a quiet assurance. And their bridal party? Supportive, yes…and lively! We had a fabulous time!
Getting ready…with laughter and mimosas. Perfect combination!
Vera Wang. *sigh*
Tara was in fabulous hands with a bridal party who took their duties seriously.
One of the prettiest and most unique bouquets I’ve seen!
Her unique ring fit her bouquet and dress perfectly. I was in love!
After a beautiful walk down the staircase…
Eric makes her beam with love!
Mr. and Mrs.!
And one more Hollywood kiss for the crowd!
Emily and I snuck away to a local park with the bride and groom for a few informal portraits :: a time to giggle, romance, and love on each other as newly married husband and wife.
Oh, sweet, sweet love…
Tara and Eric had an outdoor welcome to their reception featuring bubbles…
Grand Volute Ballroom. Need I say more? They are timeless and fit Tara and Eric’s black and white theme perfectly.
And they had an indoor upbeat introduction as well! We’re here to get this party started!
Many toasts by dear friends and relatives that brought both laughter and happy tears.
Thankful for this unique angle while they cut their cake.
Clinking glasses for kisses? Too cliche for Eric and Tara 😉 — their guests had to earn their kisses! With SONG!
I’m a daddy’s girl, and I love beautiful moments like this during the Father/Daughter dance.
I wish you two the best of a lifetime! Your wedding day was beautiful, and I hope your marriage is even more so!
