Tarah and Daniel were married on a beautiful day at the end of June! Tarah and I are two peas in a pod when it comes to schedules and organization (but she has me COMPLETELY beat in the fitness department:)! I loved that she had her day timed out perfectly and stuck to it…everything went so smoothly all morning/aftenoon!
The girls got ready down the street from Lakeview at a hotel. They were a fun group and had out old pictures to reminisce about (and there were some GREAT ones of Tarah too – in all her 90’s glory!).While the girls had been getting ready, the guys were literally sunbathing and hanging out! When it was time to get dressed, I popped on over to Daniel’s room and grabbed a few pictures of him!Back in the girls suite, Tarah was being helped into her dress by her sisters and her mom!
After just a few pictures of Tarah, I noticed that we had forgotten the veil!!Mom helped Tarah get that into place….and we finished up with a few more pictures!Outside we found a small spot on the hotel’s property and did a few pictures of the guys together….and once they were gone, we used the same spot for the girls!I left the girls to zoom over to Lakeview for some detail pictures before the ceremony….I loved the 10 Things that you need to know about Tarah and Daniel….adorable (and funny:) little touch!As I mentioned above, Tarah was super organized and timely on her day….unfortunately, a horrific accident that happened between when I left the hotel and when she left the hotel, caused her and her girls to be almost an hour late! I was waiting for them FEELING for Tarah! I know that I would have been freaking out, so I was sure that she was too!When she did arrive, she was calm and cool – I was so proud of her…we kept everything moving and the day worked out perfectly – like nothing had ever happened:)!!
All of the bridal party couples entered to different songs….Tarah’s sister and Daniel’s brother entered to “Shots” by LMFAO – it was great!!Their wedding was on a Sunday evening, but let me tell you they still had a drinking and dancing crowd! The floor was packed the whole time and they can definitely dance (I found out that Tarah used to be a Mitzvah dancer back in her teen years – I can totally see it:)!!Tarah’s grandma is a riot and so much fun!Tarah definitely gets her moves from her mother – she was phenomenal!! Tarah presented her bouquet to her mother during the reception too….
Tarah and Daniel – congratulations! I hope that you are enjoying the last bit of time in Hawaii!! I am excited to say that your full gallery will be ready for you when you return:)!!
