The proposal happened at Sean’s sister’s house in Charlotte, NC. Sean and Taylor had been planning for a few months to go down and meet their newborn niece. Before dinner Sean’s sister sent them on a fake errand to buy some diapers. When they got back, Sean stopped Taylor at the door and told her that loved her. As they walked though his sister’s front door Sean dropped to one knee and asked Taylor to marry him in front of both of their families.
“How I didn’t know it was gonna happen is beyond me! All the clues were there and I was blissfully naive!”
Taylor said that it was hard to communicate about wedding plans with her and Sean in Washington DC, her mom is in California and the wedding being in Florida. But even so their big day was stunning.
At the beautiful 44-acre Bellemoor Plantation, Sean and Taylor enjoyed the wonders of an outdoor wedding and were surrounded by the natural Florida scenery on their wedding day.
Taylor was gorgeous in her 20’s inspired bohemian styled ivory lace Yolan Cris dress. The halter neck and flare of fringe radiated a fun and romantic Gatsby energy.
Their ceremony was under a clear frame tent under the sprawling oak trees of Bellemoor Plantation. During their portraits we captured their excitement for the day and love for each other at a variety of charmingly lush locations.
The reception took place under a white pole style tent. The tables were draped with champagne silk linens and topped with berry toned floral arrangements. Taylor incorporated lots of brass, mercury glass, and candle sticks as additional décor on the tables and in the lounge area. The candle sticks added pops of gold and black. The reception décor was envisioned and created by Taylor and her best friend.
Taylor was excited to share her love of collecting matchboxes with her guests by placing a personalized box at each place setting. After dinner the band played and the party went on into the night.
Taylor and Sean made their sparkler grand exit with their guests waving goodbye as they road off in an antique car.
