On a beautiful October afternoon, Tara and Matt were married at Chez Lily Events in Knoxville, Tennessee. As Tara walked down the aisle to her groom, he beamed with delight and pride at his stunning bride. They had met over a year ago at a Starbucks where Matt was the barista. Tara came in almost everyday to study for nursing school, and Matt was almost immediately drawn to her. After months of not so subtle flirting with her, Matt finally got his crush to go on a date, and the rest is history!
As soon as I met Tara and Matt I was so excited to photograph their wedding, and not just because her name is Tara too! I loved how goofy they were with each other, and that silliness definitely shines through in the photos from their wedding day. When they said they were going to have an Alice and Wonderland themed garden wedding I was a little taken aback because I had never heard of this theme, but mostly I was just so enthusiastic to have the chance to photograph such a creative wedding! The couple loves old books and movies, and I think it is so beautiful how they were able to incorporate their interests into their special day! Even their corn hole boards were Alice and Wonderland themed! The brides dad actually designed them, which is so cool! Scroll down to see more photos of Tara and Matt's wedding!
