When a bride contacts me about photographing a wedding in another state, I always feel SO honored. So when Talara contacted me about shooting her wedding in Kentucky, I couldn’t believe it!! And on top of that, she is a wedding photographer herself…talk about an honor! I feel so lucky to have been able to be a part of Chris and Talara’s incredible wedding celebration last weekend and have been dying to share it since the 12 hour car ride home on Sunday!!!
Talara is such a sweet bride and a dream come true to work with. She was so detail-oriented throughout the entire process and made everything so easy on her vendors!! She took such good care of us and I am so grateful for that. When Drew and I arrived on the wedding day, we were blown away by the beautiful details she incorporated! She chose to rent out a bed and breakfast for her getting ready location. But the catch was that the bed and breakfast was actually still being BUILT! So, all of the rooms were EMPTY with bare, neutral colored walls and huge windows…it was a photographers DREAM!
During the last few portraits before the ceremony, the sky started to get a little darker and thunder started to roll. As the ceremony grew closer, so did the storm…but it was as if no one could even hear it! Everyone was so excited to be there celebrating Talara and Chris that they couldn’t have cared less about the storm! Right at Talara’s dad gave her away and the officiant started the ceremony…the sky opened up and it started to POUR. But, again, no one was phased! Everyone sat through the ceremony in the pouring rain and it was INCREDIBLE!! The rain stopped right at they were announced as husband and wife and the rest of the night was just as wonderful!
Enjoy some of my favorites from this amazing wedding day and leave them some love! Congratulations, Talara and Chris! I hope you are enjoying every moment of your honeymoon in Charleston!
