Kyle & Tanya’s Sunny Yellow Wedding

The room was hushed as everyone leaned forward in their seats, hands clutched around the stems of wine glasses and beer bottles, smiles on every face. As the best man completed his touching speech following the maid of honor, everyone clapped and wiped tears, some standing and cheering as the happy couple beamed under a crystal chandelier. Then, a groomsmen got up and took the mic, speaking about Kyle and how it was such an honor to be in his wedding. Then another groomsmen. And another. Then a bridesmaid speaking to Tanya. Then another. And my mouth dropped as every member of their wedding party delivered words of well-wishes and memories, and I gasped at how loved this new husband and wife really are. To have ten of your closets friends and family members stand in front of a crowd to give you their blessing must have been so overwhelmingly wonderful, and it was the most unforgettable piece of their incredible wedding that everyone who was lucky enough to witness will ever forget.

I feel like it was only weeks ago that I met Kyle and Tanya, though it was over a year since we shot their gorgeous Salt River Engagement! I remember how much fun we had, how sweet they were, and I thought how much I couldn’t wait for their big day to finally arrive! And it flew by as fast as it came! It was such a testament to their personalities; bright yellow with country touches that make you smile without even realizing it! And Tanya’s TWO dresses, I died and went to photographer Heaven (we may have recreated a Princess Belle pose in her ballgown)! I’m so elated that these two have become husband and wife, and it was such an honor to witness. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gardner, cheers to many more years of dancing together in boots and kisses under cowboy hats!
