There are hardly words to be able to full describe what experiencing Taylor + Ryan’s wedding was like. Taylor is technically my cousin-but she’s so much more than that. We grew up down the road from each other and were 5 months apart…needless to say-we were best friends and experienced so much of life together. From playing with our American Girl dolls (I’m talking the originals like Molly and Felicity-the best ones around!) to having countless sleepovers, going through high school together, calling each other every Christmas morning to tell each other what presents we got-she was my bestie. And as she so beautifully has said-we’ve gotten to watch each other grown up and blossom into the women we are today, and I am proud to know her and be known by her. Her love for her family and friends is evident in the way she welcomes people into her home, onto her farm…and she creates such a sweet experience to all who she encounters. She is the best darn cook I know, and y’all would be lucky to eat the feasts she prepares. Hopefully now, you can imagine why this day was so incredibly special for me to capture. Taylor and Ryan live out in California, and dreamt up and created their dream DIY wedding at the farm Taylor works at in Somerset. From the set up, and from the food to the flowers-it was truly a team effort by all their closest friends and family. There was so much love in all of the people who attended, and Taylor’s joy was just exploding and so much fun to witness and photograph. They thought of it all, and it was such an amazing celebration of the love and commitment Taylor + Ryan have to and for one another, as well as their family and friends. My heart is full as I share their photos with you all!!
