Where to start with these two and their wedding at home. We had our first “date” at a restaurant, we got to know each other, and I asked all of the normal first date questions about how they met and where the wedding would be. They let me know they were having a wedding at home (squeal!), the home of Ryan’s mother and stepdad that raised him to be more exact. Wedding venues are amazing and have a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience, but a wedding at home is more rare so, of course, I jump at the chance to be part of it! Ryan and Tamara had received my name through a friend and checked me out online first, and we were all thrilled to be clicking so quickly in person (I still cherish their quirky emails zooming into my inbox!). They instantly felt like an extended part of my friend group, which they were. I’m happy to say that now they ARE my friends, and they still have dinner with me and spend time making me fabulous hand crafted items (Tamara does embroidery, you’ll see below). They are both generous with their talent, their time, and their friendship.

They built their own wooden altar area for the front yard of the home of Ryan’s parents. Tamara made all of the hoop embroidery on display and her bouquet made out of book pages. She threw flowers over his mom’s balcony. East Side Kings, their favorite food truck, catered. They rode off on a tandem bicycle, and Tamara did it in the best going away dress I’ve ever seen! They put their heart into every detail of the wedding, and those are my favorite kind. You can buy all the details you want, but when they’re personalized, they mean so much more. You shine out from every corner, and you enhance your guests’ experience as well as your own. I hope you enjoy their wedding as much as I did!
