Taylor and Stu’s wedding was the first wedding I booked under Swoon Soiree. They are such a sweet couple and they have such great friends and family.  

Taylor wanted a very “fall” wedding.  She couldn’t have had a prettier day.  The trees had just turned, the skies were clear, and the air was crisp.  On the Friday before her wedding her friends and family arrived in droves to bring in all of the decor and help set everything up.  Her father in law hand made her altar, her friends and family made the pinecone wreaths that sat around handmade candles, her mother knitted her shawl. The pies were made by her aunts and her playlist was made by her hubby.  It was unbelievable.  Every single bit of her wedding was so personal and so made with love.

Taylor looked stunning in her illusion wedding gown.  When it was time to really party she surprised her guests with a quick dress change so she could dance the night away.  Stu looked dapper in his suit, and his playlist was a huge hit.  Rick from Black Tie Entertainment was the DJ that ensured that all of their favorite songs were played. 

The photographer, Peter Beliaev, with Peter Beliaev Photography was such a joy to work with.  He actually knew Taylor from years ago and when she got engaged she reached out and booked him for her wedding.   This was a wedding full of friendships, family, and good times.
