It's hard for me to even begin to describe Taylor & Chase's wedding day. Usually it is fairly easy for me to pull favorite image from a day, but this one is so close to my heart that it has taken me months to even choose. Taylor & Chase put so much purpose behind planning their wedding. After becoming engaged, Taylor and Chase knew they both wanted an intimate celebration with their closet friends and family. Santa Rosa Beach was a natural choice, since both their families love to vacation there. Taylor loves meaningful details and infused that love into so many aspects of their day. Taylor’s Mom and family created the stunning family style table set up on the lawn adjacent to the beach. They filled the tables with Taylor’s favorite muted colored oysters (a nod to the seaside theme), a plethora of candles and handmade arrangements. Guest signed two boat oars that they will keep in their home. Even the officiant was Taylor and Chase’s good friend and Taylor’s old soccer coach. Their love is so natural and they were both so joyful throughout the whole day. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed two people more thrilled to be joining their lives together. Everything about their day was beautiful, simplistic and focused on their sweet family and friends. They made the day all about what is most important to them. They had so many kids involved, since all their nephews and nieces are a huge part of their lives. The whole feel of their day was perfectly descriptive of who they are together. The laid back family-style reception was one of the sweetest I've been a part of in all my years of photographing weddings. It was such a celebration of their love and joining their lives together. The love they share is infectious. Plus, Taylor is one of the sweetest, most generous people I have ever met. She went out of her way to make sure everyone was taken care of and that they felt welcomed. The perfectly simple elegance of every detail was enthralling. I know it will be a favorite for a long time to come. You can also find their day published on Style Me Pretty.
