An Intimate Larsen Park Wedding: Tanya + Eric

It’s no secret that I love Weddings.  All different kinds– big and small, inside and outside, classic and rustic, glamorous and vintage, DIY or hiring the professionals to design it all.  Every now and then, a couple  comes along and surprises you with the unexpected.  I have known Tanya, a gorgeous girl inside and out, for a little over 3 years and I was honored when she asked me in May to photograph her July 5, 2014 Wedding.  Tanya met her handsome groom-to-be a few years ago, fell in love, got engaged earlier this year and together, decided to get married.  They planned an intimate park wedding in less than 3 months because they wanted to be married.  To be husband and wife.  There is something so incredibly sweet about that and it was an honor to document that kind of love.

When I arrived, Tanya, her mom and 3 bridesmaids were getting even more gorgeous for the day.  The bride-to-be glowed and just took in every moment as her lip gloss was being applied.   They chose to have a First Look at a nearby park and I couldn’t have been more excited!  The sweetest first look moments were shared and it was the perfect way to begin their Wedding Day.

Tanya and Eric, thank you so much for being such an amazing couple!  We loved capturing all the love and light on your gorgeous Wedding Day!  You two were made for one another, and we are so excited for your future together as Mr. and Mrs!  Much love, A+ P

Tanya’s dad giving her away was such a sweet moment


After getting Married, the Bride + Groom hosted friends and family at their gorgeous home.  Celebration ensued well into the evening and ended with sparklers and fireworks!
