Tara & Darren : Mountain View Manor Wedding

They met on the train…

The sweetest beginning to this beautiful love story. I’ve been waiting 8 years to write this blog post. The day my best friend got married.

Last December, Darren proposed to Tara during a family photo shoot & we were able to capture the proposal. It was one of my favorite moments – until June 2nd, 2018. Because their wedding day is one I will never forget. Tara was the most beautiful bride. The first look, when Darren saw Tara for the first time is one moment that I will never forget. Their handwritten vows were perfect. The toasts were full of laughter, and some tears. The dances were sweet, memorable, and the dance party was SO FUN. It truly was a celebration. Of two people starting a life together. Of families getting to watch as Tara & Darren’s marriage began. Of friends coming together to celebrate these two and their incredible love story.  This will forever be one of my favorite days.

Tara asked if I would be her Maid-of-Honor & I obviously said yes. But I also knew that Kyle & I would be the wedding photographers and knew that we would never regret the decision to do both! Being able to capture her wedding day was one of the best gifts I could have ever given her – and I was so happy to hear and see her reactions when she saw the photos for the first time. I switched between bridesmaid dress & photographer dress a few times throughout the wedding day & would do it all again to be able to not only be her maid-of-honor but also her photographer. It was worth every second of running around.

The wedding was held at Mountain View Manor in Enumclaw, WA. The team of vendors who they hired for their wedding was seriously my All-Star Dream Cast of people. The weather was perfect & every detail was full of thoughtfulness and beauty!
