Waco Wedding Photography at the Earle Harrison House & Pape Gardens
Tara + Colton are married!
They held their wedding ceremony & reception at the beautiful, historical Earle-Harrison House & Pape Gardens in Waco, TX.
The whole day was so sweet and so full of precious family moments! Tara was able to recreate a photo on the exact staircase where her mother took one of her bridal portraits inside of the Earle-Harrison house! Tara also wore a ring that belongs to her mother - such a sweet sentiment!
We love that Tara + Colton chose to have a First Look! Not only did it help relieve some of Tara's nerves, she was finally getting to see her soon-to-be husband; we also got to capture such sweet emotional moments between the two of them, and spend time taking photos of the two of them alone before all of the festivities began!
The wedding ceremony was lovely. A string quartet played and songs were sung. Tara's dad had everyone in tears within minutes of the ceremony starting from his speech to Colton before giving Tara away. Tara + Colton's foundation is strong in the Lord, and we know they'll have a blessed life ahead of them! They even took a small moment to themselves to partake in communion together, before being announced as husband and wife!
The rest of the day was dreamy and fun -- with little ones joyfully dancing and running all over, family and friends dancing and spending time together, and Tara + Colton blissfully living out their wedding day. They ended the evening with a private last dance, then departed through sparklers and drove off in an awesome vintage Edsel Ranger.
We were so honored to be a part of such a wonderful wedding day for an incredible couple! Enjoy these photos of their day!
