The word that comes to mind when I think of Steve and Tara is "cozy!" Their interests and personalities fit snugly together like puzzle pieces! Their mutual love of great stories inspired the literature-themed details, like the confetti made from discarded (and well-worn!) books. Their save-the-dates were bookmarks, their centerpieces were stacked, old books (saved from the discard pile at libraries or purchased secondhand), and Tara gave each table a chapter number with literary quotes. And in Tara's words: "The wedding color is orange because like Anne Shirley, I love Octobers!" The Ramsey Golf and Country Club was the perfect setting - its peaceful lawns and quiet tree-laden nooks befitting such a laid-back couple! Steve and Tara, we know you will have many years of total happiness together, and we wish the best for you as you begin your journey as husband and wife!

Steve's face seeing Tara for the first time was PRICELESS!

Reading together on the best day of their lives? CHECK!

Steve loves golf, and this was the one special photo request he had - so cute!

Tall trees always make for such a dreamy ceremony location!
