Despite the questionable weather forecast, Taylor and Caz were married under blue skies, with mild temperatures and a cooling breeze - the perfect July wedding.
Taylor was romantically stunning in her custom gown by Norde Bridal, accented with rose-gold accessories. Her bridesmaids were soft and feminine, pretty in pink. Caz made a dashing groom in his classic greys, a perfect complement to Taylor.
Taylor and Caz set the time aside to prioritize their wedding photography, recognizing that their captures would only grow in value over time. Their first-looks by the river - a place that holds special memories for them - was emotion-filled and the perfect start to their time spent together on their wedding day. Caz custom-built a floral swing for Taylor and had the groomsmen install it in their favourite forest location the morning of their wedding. There, Caz secreted Taylor away so she could become a romantic picture of bridal perfection with her handsome groom. A waterfall was the chosen site for their bridal party photo - each member braving slippery ground to make that one capture count.
Anyone concerned about first looks minimizing the impact of a groom's reaction seeing his wife-to-be walk the down the aisle need only look at Caz's face during Taylor's walk to him to know that's not true. There were few dry eyes for everyone as Taylor, on the crook of her mom's arm, made her way to Caz to officially tie the knot. Post-ceremony euphoria pics tend to be the most genuine, happiest captures of the day - and Taylor and Caz did not disappoint as they beamed ear to ear after the exchange of their rings and walk back down the aisle.
Taylor and Caz - thanks for your trust in me to guide you and serve you on your wedding day. I wish you many, many more years of love and happiness on your river and forest. xox
