CHANDLER + DREW TAYLOR | WEDDING
It's a Beautiful Day at Pinehurst for a Wedding / Elegant Pinehurst Resort Wedding, NC / Pinehurst Wedding Photographer
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Pinehurst dream! I met Drew Taylor and Chandler at their engagement session at the Pinehurst Arboretum. Drew Taylor had the sweetest spirit. They were two of the most chill people. They were so relaxed, even though they had to travel from Charlotte and Chandler had to be back to work the next morning at 5 am! I then got to meet her parents at one of the most fun bridal sessions ever. I then got to witness how much her parents adored her. Her father teared up when he saw her in her gown, he stayed with us throughout the session, and even threw the veil a few times. So much fun (I'll post her bridal later). Drew Taylor may be her daddy's girl but she definitely gets her sweet spirit from her mom.
Fast forward to this past Saturday, their wedding day. Chandler and Drew Taylor’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. The weather was incredible, the light was perfect, the timeline was amazing but most importantly, witnessing these two start their life together was so special. Drew Taylor was with her friends in the Carolina Hotel, relaxing and preparing for an amazing day. Her dad kept checking in on them and all it took was walking in to see her hanging dress and the tears began. Her sweet mom gave him the softist kiss, and commented to not make her start crying. Her mom helped her into her dress while her dad patiently waited. They shared the most perfect first look as she gave him a special handkerchief, which he knew he would need during the day. Chandler spent the morning golfing in 40 degree weather and returned ready to get married. They shared a sweet and cheerful first look as her bridesmaids peeped through a window to witness the moment. Time moved quickly and it was time for Drew Taylor's dad to walk her down the isle. Many tears were shed. I remember photographing the ceremony in the center isle, crouched down, hearing Drew Taylor's father softly singing Allison Kraus's "You Say it best, When You Say Nothing at All". It was a special song they shared so it was fitting for it to be played.
Then off to the Pinehurst Members Club for the newlyweds to celebrate with 270 of their friends and family. And boy did they celebrate! We were thrilled to be a part of their story! We’re so thankful! So, enjoy my favorites from this amazing day and forgive me, I blogged way too many. I realize this! I just had a hard time narrowing it down!! Congratulations Chandler and Drew Taylor! We are thrilled to have been a small part of such a big season of your life!! We love you both!!! Just remember that the best is yet to come!
