It’s official!! These two are married and I have a new favorite type of reception… you are going to love this wedding. Taryn and Claye picked out the perfect summer color pallet to go along with their tent reception. We started the day with the girls getting ready at the Urban Cottage. It’s a cute little bed and breakfast attached to a salon and spa just outside of town. The girls had so many laughs while getting ready. I love this time with them, there is so much anticipation leading up to the ceremony.

This is one of the largest weddings I have photographed to date, with over 300 guests. So you can see how Claye and Taryn were surrounded all day with so much love and support. I think at the wedding dance the tent was bursting at the seams. The Beach Bad Boys kept the crowd entertained and on the dance floor and the Old Fashioned Mobile Bar kept everyone cups filled. The decor was perfect and the wooden dance floor really finished off the look.

There were a few amazing parts of the day that I want to share with you!!!

  • Both Taryn and Claye could not stop smiling, their JOY was so contagious!!!
  • Their flower girls were adorable and kind of stole the show during the ceremony
  • The MC’s did an amazing job, their intro’s to the bridal party were hilarious
  • The MOH wrote and sang a song for Taryn
  • We missed golden hour but got to hit Twilight and I’m in love with those images.


Clay and Taryn’s day was a dream, from the setting to the joy felt by everyone. It truly was magical. Thank you to the new Mr & Mrs. Spady for inviting me to capture the beginning of your legacy.
