09 Aug Classic, Neutral Cadre Wedding
He bounced on the balls of his feet while he waited to see her. His eyes sparkled with excitement and, already knowing the answer, I asked if he was ready for his wedding day. “SO ready!” he replied with a huge grin. We could feel the anticipation pouring off him in waves. He didn’t have any of the usual groom nerves, and cold feet were certainly not in the equation. This man was simply ready to be married to the love of his life! George loves Taylor with a fierceness we rarely see. It was obvious to everyone who shared the day with them that Taylor makes George insanely happy, and she would do anything to make him happy.
With the help of their wedding planner, Taylor and George created the perfect day for them. Every tiny detail carried important meaning, and they were sure to include every single person that they love. They have a classic, timeless love, and their wedding style reflected that. From Taylor’s stunning ivory ballgown and full-length veil to the mountains of cascading orchids, everything was refined and sophisticated, just like them.
They were surrounded by 25 of their closest friends (one of the largest wedding parties we’ve photographed to date!) who catered to Taylor and George all day long. The amount of friends willing to stand up for them on this day says so much about Taylor and George, and it is no wonder that so many people love them! Taylor and George are a true power couple. I asked them if their friends were jealous of how AWESOME a couple they are, and George replied that they were only jealous of the amazing, beautiful wife he managed to snag! I loved him a little bit more for that.
Taylor and George, thank you so much for being you. For knowing that the wedding day is about the marriage, and for soaking up every minute of it. We were so honored to be a part of your day, and we agree that it was the “best day ever!”
I always know it’s going to be a good day when the bride is getting ready at the Peabody Hotel!
Taylor made such a classic, gorgeous bride! Doesn’t she just look like she could be the Queen of England?? All the heart eyes.
LOVED this candid moment with her sister!
There’s nothing like a tailored black tux for a wedding day!
Taylor and George chose to see each other before the ceremony, and they were just so giddy when they finally got to see each other! It was just the cutest thing!
These ladies were AMAZING! They truly wanted the best for Taylor on her wedding day, and they did everything to make sure she was taken care of. Taylor is so lucky to have so many caring friends!
Taylor and George were surprised with a second line band, and we had so much fun marching to the reception, just a few blocks away!
The Cadre looked SO BEAUTIFUL! The creative team knocked this one out of the park!
Taylor and George just could not stop smiling! They had the sweetest First Dance.
The party was so much fun! Taylor told me she was having such a good time, and when the band asked her how she was doing, she replied perfectly with “BEST DAY EVER!”
Taylor and George spent every second of their reception together, most of the time wrapped in each other’s arms like this. No one could deny that they are so in love!
Here’s to the best day ever! Cheers!
