We were honored to help Tara Knight and Glenn Downs become husband and wife yesterday. Such a wonderful couple. These two were absolutely made for one another. If they're not already doing so, they'll soon be finishing each others sentences.
Every detail of the wedding went off without a hitch. The day was absolutely perfect. I am a huge fan of trolleys and happily, Tara wanted to use one. It's such a great way to transport a large group of people. Tara and her girls rode a beautiful trolley from the hotel to the church and then the entire wedding party rode it from the church to the reception at the historic Round Barn at The Red Mile.
I have so many great memories of this wedding. The band was amazing. The cake (I'm eating some now...yummy!) and food were delicious and the flowers were breathtaking. What more can you ask? Oh, how about witnessing the exact moment Glenn saw Tara for the first time. I keep telling myself that I shouldn't get all teary eyed when a bride gets ready to walk down the aisle but I just can't seem to help myself. I just thought Tara's excitement of soon becoming Glenn's wife reminded me of my own wedding. I could not get down that aisle fast enough!
The vendors who helped pull this wedding together are amazing. Big thanks to Ian Lozada for referring Tara to me. He must have known we'd be a perfect match. And I always look forward to pre-ceremony activities if I get to see uber-talented Ana Crane-Simpson and Sara Drury. Finally, I had a new assistant, Katherine Vaughn, to help make sure everything ran like clockwork. Talk about someone who will just jump in and get the job done! Kudos to you, Katherine! (So excited this is the same line-up for next weekend's wedding, too!)
So, to Tara & Glenn, I hope last night was everything you always imagined. I am going to miss you terribly but wish you all the joy and happiness marriage has to offer. Congratulations!
