today’s love story:
Tara + David’s elegant BVI wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
We’ve photographed several weddings at the Bedford Village Inn over the last 10 years, but something changed after Tara and David (and Anna and TJ…you’ll see their highlight next week!) were married there.
I fell madly in love with BVI! I’m excited to show you why…
From Brooklyn (for their engagement session) to Bedford NH, we’ve been with Tara and David for a while and it’s been fun every step of the way.
Ok, this one is clearly posed…but how cute is it?! One of the nice things about BVI is that everything happens onsite. They got ready in the bridal suite, married in the courtyard and celebrated in the grand hall.
It makes the logistics of the day SO simple so a bride and groom can maximize time with their favorite people.
Once Tara was ready, Dad got the FIRST first look and was crying before he even saw her. Tara and David intentionally selected their first look location so bridesmaids could watch from afar before they read personal vows to one another, with parents welcomed to watch.
The Courtyard is magical…and Bedford Village Inn had signature drinks and apps at the ready to keep smiles going as we transitioned from ceremony to celebration.
We snuck outside for a few quiet minutes in the soft evening light. These two are loving, supportive and excited for all of the adventures life has for them together as a married couple. I loved creating this space for them…bonus that they’re chemistry is so easy to photograph!
Congratulations Tara + David! I’m so so glad we were able to celebrate your relationship from NYC to NH, and I can’t wait to see where your journey takes you as you head back to New York!
