Congratulations, Tara and Robbie!

Ok, how much do I heart Tara and Robbie? They were an uber-fab couple to work with. Tara wanted a very intimate gathering of family and friends at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Tara’s ceremony was at the gorgeous Faith Chapel with about 64 family and friends– some who came all the way over from Ireland!
After a beautiful ceremony, the wedding guests were treated to a gorgeous cocktail hour at the reflecting pool and then dined inside the Courtyard at Crane Cottage. Soonafter, it was time to cut a delicious five tier key lime cheesecake that was ornamented with amber jeweled brooches and roses courtesy of the uber-fabulous Heidi of Rosalee’s Flower Boutique. (She’s my new girlfriend 🙂 )
The night moved on to the garden of Crane Cottage, where the Andy Cooney Band played some traditional Irish tunes, where guests danced and “jigged” on Tara and Robbie’s monogrammed dance floor. BUT, not before Tara and Robbie showed off their signature first dance tango to Carlos Gardel’s Por Una Cabesa. For a surprise for the evening, a gorgeous firework display erupted from over the Riverfront Lawn.
Tara and Robbie were phenomenal clients– so creative and SO in love. I can remember remarking to Tara as I watched them practice their tango before the reception, “Wow, look at how he looks at you. He is so in love with you!”, to which Robbie responded, “Yes, I am! I married the love of my life.”
I know. Swoon.
Check out more beautiful pictures and see the slideshow from their wedding over at the other wedding diva’s site– Scarlett Lillian, formerly of Captivating Studios. Scarlett was awesome to work with (finally!). I can seriously say that she was professional and ALWAYS went the extra mile to get the perfect shot while remaining invisible. (Another quote I remember making that night to Scarlett was: “I’ve seen you in more positions than I’ve ever seen in yoga class”) She definitely did what she had to do to get the perfect, creative shot. I heart you, Scarlett! Until we meet again…either at another wedding or over creme brulee at the Ritz Carlton again!
