Dear Tamara and Tim,

Thank you for opening your hearts to friends and family on September 18. We absolutely loved celebrating as you committed your lives to one another. The readings, music and your vows from the heart lifted the spirits of everyone present. Your wedding day is a gift we will treasure always.

Our hugs surround you with unconditional love as together you journey forward on life’s great adventure……

Tamara and Timothy:

It is difficult to put into words exactly what I want to convey to you both:

A wedding is a milestone. The ceremony and gathering of family and friends was both extraordinary and unique. Your radiant faces and excitement showed all who were there just how incredible and fabulous your relationship is. Also, the love you share and the depth of your commitment toward one another was abundantly evident in the vows you wrote and shared in the presence of those gathered around you. All of the priceless memories will be recalled when we look at the wonderful pictures which capture the essence of your special day.

The two of you share the same inquisitive nature and each and every new experience seems to be done with wonder and joy. There is no doubt that whether standing on a mountain top, viewing a sunrise or sunset or maneuvering through life’s challenges, you will do so hand and hand and only see the beauty and fun of each experience shared together.

May the future continue to hold endless possibilities and joy for you both.

Love,

Mom (Sherry)


Tamara + Tim,

WOW!!  You guys have such awesome family and friends; both parents jumped in wholeheartedly with two fantastic love letters.  Your wedding was beautifully crafted to match your adventurous and passionate personalities, two traits we admire and appreciate.  Making friends with clients is like the icing on an already delicious cake and here again is why we love what we do.  Between the poetic readings, Johnny Cash and numerous toasts, it’s obvious you two surround yourself with the best.  Thank you for letting us participate in your special day and everyone’s flexibility when the rain came!  …and to top it off with a dance party for all dance parties!

All the best,

B + W

Tamara saved the wedding invitation for this shot 🙂

The fun shoes may have been Wendy’s idea but Tamara, you picked some FUN shoes…you go.

A cute moment in the girls room with Tamara and her niece.

Love this soft bridal portrait and the natural light window in the back…yum.

The bride was hidden by the umbrella until the last, final, endless…moment. 🙂

Some of the best readings and music…all touching tributes to love.

This was one of the countless times Tamara’s hand went to her chest – a guesture when she’s moved..no doubt.

One of our all time favs…and yes, it was RAINING!  Mosquitoes or rain…nothing stops these two.

…prepping for the first dance on the golf course.

The only moment these two didn’t smile!  Thanks for the ‘farmer portrait’ you two 🙂

Tim cutting the rug with some fun rear sync flash love. Or is it that Tim knows something we don’t about tele-transportation?!  Oh, the party!
