This couple can add another chapter to their incredible love story… Getting Married! Anybody who saw Tamara preparing for her big day could feel the joy and excitement overflowing from this young woman. This is the day she has been waiting for since she was 5 years old! She was going to marry Chad. Everyone was all smiles and giggles until she put her wedding dress on … then it became real, in a few moments she was going to be getting married. It didn’t take long for that smile to once again light up the room…she couldn’t wait to become Mrs. Jelly.
Even though the ceremony was only 15 minutes … it was one of the most emotional ceremonies I have ever witnessed. There was not a dry eye in the Grand Olympia hall, even all the groomsmen were affected by their words. I have known Tamara since she was born and was so honored to be there to capture her and Chad’s memories … but it was incredibly difficult with tears spilling out of my eyes…
I wish you many years of love and laughter … may you never forget how special your love is for each other.
Her amazing hot pink BCBG shoes!
One last check before putting on her dress …
Coming up to show her parents what a gorgeous bride she is…
I love how her parents got so emotional seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time …
Watching Chad’s parents walk him down the aisle was unbelievably touching!! This is when the water works started for me and I think everyone else. This is a very close knit family and was really beautiful to watch their love for each other.
After the ceremony we went to Fifty Point Conservation area for some portraits.
Tamara’s grandfather passed away almost 2 years ago and she had a photo of him pinned to her bouquet.
My little neice Angela … she just loves being a flower girl.
I don’t normally post dancing shots … but I couldn’t resist with all of these … they just tell the story so perfectly.
I hope you guys had a great honeymoon in Mexico! Lots of love to you both – xox –
NOW … I wan’t going to post these … but couldn’t resist! My son was the ring bearer and is a very shy kid! You would never have guessed the way he tore up the dance floor to all his favorite songs! LOL … yup … my son is “that” guy who puts the tie around his head and un-buttons his shirt!
