I remember the moment I met Janelle and her mom Shari and how amazing and pretty I thought they were. I remember thinking, wow, those would be two beautiful ladies to get to know and I bet a dream to photograph! They had the cutest story of how Janelle and Tyler met- their moms are best friends and they have known each other since childhood so adorable
About a year later, here the photos are- and it was a dream. A lovely romantic whimsical emotional and fun filled day of wishes coming true.
My best friend has two daughters, but if she had a son you bet I would be hoping my daughter would grow up and they would fall in love and get married. Lucky for Janelle and Tyler, that’s exactly what happened!!! Their moms are best friends and have been for years. It’s the perfect storybook romance. Seriously it’s just making me a little weepy thinking about how cute that is and how special. Talk about fate and luck!!
Janelle and Tyler’s wedding was fun and it was beautiful. We had perfect weather and Vintage Ranch really looks so gorgeous around September and October. There are many special things they chose to do that contributed to the day being so amazing. A couple that come to mind- Janelle wore the same dress her mom was married in, remodeling it here and there but essentially keeping the same style. It fit her PERFECTLY. Talk about awesome genes! She arranged to have a “first look” with her mom who hadn’t seen her in the finished dress yet and that was a very powerful and emotional moment with so many happy tears. Another thing they did that I loved was a family style dinner. I’ve grown to appreciate this more and more. It’s a nice middle ground between a buffet and plated dinner and gives guests the options of choosing what they want and how much food and also staying at the tables to chat and enjoy their time together.
The decor was so gorgeous and I can’t really put it I to words. My favorite element of the entire decoration scheme was Janelle and Tyler’s sweetheart table. Shari, Janelles Mom, found their vintage plates… and wow. So so pretty. I took a million photos of it, I couldn’t help myself!
I adore this couple and I am so seriously blessed they choose me and the rest of their amazing wedding team to put together their day. Get ready for a feast for you eyes and a love story come true.
