Alex + Tara l Aiken, SC Wedding Photographer l Hopelands Gardens + The Wilcox Wedding

Alex + Tara had their wedding at Hopelands Gardens and followed it with an intimate dinner at the Wilcox. All week the weather threatened storms and rain on their wedding day but come 3 o'clock on Saturday there was nothing but beautiful sunshine! The weather held off all evening for their wedding (it down poured that night after I got home!!!!). 

I love small weddings. Not because they're less hectic. (Truth be told, small weddings almost always find a way to dish out a healthy dose of craziness--maybe because its unexpected?!) Anyway-one of the reasons I love small weddings is because the bride and groom get to spend more time with their guests. Theres an unspoken intimacy with small weddings. I'd like to say theres camaraderie but thats not quite the right word... Theres a feeling of unity (there it is!). It feels as if everyone present is hugging the couple while they exchange their vows. 

Being a part of Alex + Tara's wedding day was such a pleasure. Tara is about the sweetest most down to earth girl you will ever meet. Tara + Alex had such awareness for one another. Awareness that only comes from deep seeded love for another person. And their daughter...oh their daughter! This child is probably the most beautiful big sis to be ever. Yep, thats right. She's going to be a big sis! Tara + Alex announced to their closest friends and family that they are expecting again using their cake topper! SUCH A JOYOUS DAY!

Congratulations Alex + Tara!!!! It was truly such a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love. And congratulations on the newest member-to-be of your family!!
