Andrew and Taylor. The best way I can describe these two is that she is Cinderella and he is her Prince Charming. …I mean, so much so that one of the little boys at their wedding was convinced that Taylor actually was a princess!! He stared at her in awe. And so did Andrew. Taylor is radiant, joyful and beautiful and Andrew compliments her perfectly. He is kind and protective and loving. Together, they are nothing short of magical. A Disney themed wedding at the beautiful Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch was perfectly “them”. The wedding dress, the colors and and details all came together in a way that made all of their guests feel like they were part of a fairytale.
I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to express my love and gratitude toward Taylor and her mom, Kim. When I first met with Taylor, she was accompanied by her mom and Andrew’s mom. We talked about the wedding, our families, our dogs and photography. It didn’t feel a client meeting AT ALL. I felt like I was hanging out with my family! I LOVE mother-daughter relationships and I could tell Taylor and Kim’s bond was super strong. At the very end of our meeting, they came back to me and handed me a cookie. “This is for Ava,” they said. And with those 4 words, I fell in love with them.
I started following Taylor on Facebook and I was able to see how close she and Kim are. I love their selfies. I love their relationship. I love their love. Shortly after they booked with me, my dog was having surgery. Taylor text me and told me that they had been thinking about us and hoped it went well. My heart was full and I was so thankful for Taylor and Andrew, and their families. They’ve treated me like family from the beginning and were so kind and sweet throughout the wedding day. They’ve been a true blessing to my life. For me, photography is not just about pictures. It’s about relationships with people. I hope my relationship with these families last forever.
Andrew bought Taylor a gun as their wedding gift. Isn’t it awesome!?
This is one of my favorite quotes of ever.
Taylor and Andrew, thank you for sharing your lives, your magical day and your fairytale love story with me. I wish you all the best and happily ever after.
