Here are some of our favorite photos from Tara & Joe’s Wedding!

Personalized details from Tara’s favorite cowboy boots to their rustic hand-torn invitation.
The beautiful notes that Joe wrote to Tara to display at her bridal shower made their way to the wedding. Because….of course they did! He is literally the sweetest!!
One of our favorite first looks of all time! What a clever idea!
Tara & Joe were married at their dream venue, Brecknock Hall on the North Fork of Long Island.
Money saving tip #5: Have your ceremony & reception at the same location.
Have you ever seen a more adorable couple??
Money Saving Tip #2: Split costs with the couple getting married the day before/after you!
Tara saved $7,500 splitting the tent cost with another couple!
Money Saving Tip #3: Opt for a family style dinner! The elegance of a sit down dinner minus the price point of a plated meal. Plus, everyone gets to try a little of everything!
Money Saving Tip #4: Be involved in choosing dinnerware! Different serving platters will cost more or less depending on the size/shape. If the shape of a plate is not
on your priority list, you can save here!
They fell in love on a park bench, so it made perfect sense to incorporate this into their wedding day. Tara & Joe built this bench together <3 #daawwwww
