These high school friends turned sweethearts didn’t have to look far when searching for the perfect place to be married. They couldn’t have said it better, ” We love the venue. We grew up in this town, swimming in this lake, and signing up for activities in this community center. It could not have been a more perfect place to get married.” When talking about their wedding, Tal and Ryan were keen on spending time with family and friends, enjoying some delicious food, lovely scenery and lawn games of course!
We began the day as the bridal party was gathered happily getting ready for the day ahead. Tal was dressing in her gorgeous gown enjoying great company (and dance moves) as Ryan donned his pressed suit alongside his loved ones. Stepping into the woods, they made their way to their First Look with nerves and anticipation -Tal remembered, “We had that special moment just to ourselves. We got to see each other first and hug each other, which helped me get rid of my nerves and reminded me why we were both there that day. He gave me a beautiful gift right on the lake. It was perfect.”
Following the First Look, they headed to the ceremony. Beautiful, seasonal flowers suspended overhead made for a whimsical, romantic setting. Ryan remembers, “The ceremony was particularly special to me because I was really excited to hear not only what Tal was going to say but also what my uncle, the officiant had planned. We didn’t know what to expect but it was full of love and it couldn’t have been more perfect.”
After sweet, personal vows where exchanged, Tal and Ryan were husband and wife – time to celebrate! The couple joined in on a fun cocktail hour before heading off to the reception space. Elegant and timeless, the reception space was full of lovely florals and personal details. Tear-filled toasts and lots of wonderful food were enjoyed. Tal and Ryan soaked up every possible second alongside their family and friends – truly a night full of wide smiles and tremendous love.
