Real Wedding: Tara & Ryker

Tara & Ryker were the lucky couple to wrap up our 2011 wedding season this past November. From the moment Tara called us, we knew it was going to be FUN, hip, full of color and hearts at the Smog Shoppe in LA. The entire day so perfectly fit her sparkly personality….so much so that not even the craziest rain storm could stop the day from being SO MUCH FUN and filled with endless love. I know we say this every time, but it is such an honor and privilege to be a part of this special day in our couple’s lives.

Carter & Cook came alongside and helped Tara establish all her creative ideas. She had a strong vision from the get-go! We also designed all the flowers for this wedding, which was such a fun color palette of endless pinks & reds. Dinner was catered by their favorite Kogi Food Truck & dessert was a table filled with delicious doughnuts from a local bakery. Also, we were so thankful to work with Michele Waite again for the 2nd time this past year. She and her hubby are wonderful photographers and we are so thankful to call them friends.

Mr. & Mrs. Block….you two are wonderful, beautiful and the kindest couple. We adore you and wish you many, many blessings over your marraige. We love you!

And a big thank you to Green Wedding Shoes for the feature!!! Definitely one of Tara’s favorite blogs. :)

Their first look got to me. I cried like a baby while watching from the sidelines. Such a beautiful memory…..Michele captured it all perfectly of course.
