A summer day with country-chic details was all this couple needed to create a celebration they would never forget! Love and support surrounded Derek & Taylor’s nuptials, making it truly the best day of their lives. Having dreamed of finding THE dress since she was a little girl, choosing the perfect gown was the bride’s most crucial part of planning. After that (and with the help of some wonderful vendors) everything else just fell into place. We are beyond thrilled to showcase their wedding day, fantastically captured by Emily Jessen Photography!
FROM THE BRIDE: Our wedding day was more than we could have ever dreamed of. I knew it was going to be an amazing day, but it was truly the best day of my life. My favorite memory was during our ceremony, when our pastor told us to take a moment to turn and look at all of the family and friends that came to support our marriage. It was a moment where I had to hold back the tears. Everyone we loved was all in one place. My advice for future planners is to take every moment in because time will go by faster than you believe! Don’t sweat the small stuff, because believe it or not – you will be so remarkably happy on your wedding day that all of those small things will not matter. It will be the best day of your life and all of the hard work getting there will be worth it!
