Oh friends! Do I have some pretty to show you today! This wedding has quickly become one of my favorites. I had the joy of shooting Sydney and Joe’s gorgeous Tanglewood wedding alongside my husband (future AB Brides, just in case one Boling wasn’t enough, you now get two for your special day!), which was planned by the very talented Sara Bates, and I just loved every minute of it.
From the moment we arrived, my photographer heart was on overdrive – from the stunning colonial style Tanglewood Bed and Breakfast to the matching robes and pajama sets to Sydney’s timeless and breathtaking dress. We loved how Sydney and Joe carefully chose precious moments throughout their entire day. Every detail and every decision was heavy with the beauty and significance of the promise they were making later that afternoon. From the letters they exchanged early in the morning to their perfume gifts at their first look so they’ll always be reminded of their wedding day when they smell it to the time Sydney took with just her parents to be prayed over one more time before she walked down the aisle – it had us in tears over and over again.
Sydney and Joe, we just love you guys! We loved meeting your families and your wedding party (I don’t think I’ve ever been more tempted to find a matching dress and join in the fun). From the moment I heard about Joe’s jaw-dropping proposal (another story for another day – but you’ll just have to trust me this beats out any Bachelor proposal yet), I couldn’t wait for this day to come. You two are kind beyond belief and joyful doesn’t even begin to capture the goodness of this day. We are so excited for you and hope you love your memories as much as we loved documenting them for you.
