There comes a point at every wedding we photograph where everyone exhales the breath they have been holding, relaxes, and just enjoys the special day. At Taylor and Chad's wedding, like most, you could sense that almost as soon as you pulled up to the reception. The day had been lovely, a little cool for August, and though it kept threatening to rain on us it only sprinkled. We had actually run ahead of schedule, and the wedding party had been wonderful to work with. No complaints! :) The ceremony went perfectly and there were tears of happiness glistening in some eyes. But at the reception, that is when the jackets came off, the smiles grew bigger, and everyone began to celebrate this sweet couple who was now husband and wife.
The tents were set up outside Taylor's parents' home, with strings of lights hanging between the trees in the background. The DJ played music softly as the guests helped themselves to the food, complete with a beautiful display of donuts just begging to be eaten. :) And at any point you could see Taylor and Chad, arms around each other's waists, with family and friends gathered around to talk with and congratulate the couple. The little ones danced on the dance floor and chased each other around, and excitedly grabbed the tossed bouquet and garter towards the end of the night. The atmosphere was one of peaceful happiness and southern charm. To say goodbye, everyone lined up with glowing sparklers and cheered as they bid farewell to the new Mr. and Mrs., and Taylor and Chad began their new life together as husband and wife. I think everyone left that night with smiles on their faces and sweet love songs ringing in their ears.
Congratulations, Taylor and Chad, and thanks so much for letting us be a part of your special day!
