cowboy hats, green high heels, and polka dot fingernails

Well, even after narrowing down my favorites from Eric & Taryn's wedding, I still had too many left for just two posts, so I am doing three! In this post, I will share some of my favorites from the "getting ready" time, as well as some portraits.

But first, I just have to chat for a second about Eric & Taryn......These two are just good-hearted, kind people! I can honestly say that every interaction I've had with them was completely comfortable and all-around great! :) When I first met Taryn, I liked her immediately, and I was so happy for her once I met Eric and saw the two of them together! They both have wonderful families as well!

When I got to Marlow on the morning of the wedding, I met the girls at Taryn's aunt's amazingly beautiful home! They had spent the night there and were eating a relaxed breakfast to start the day off right. I'm telling you, this home looked like something out of an interior design magazine!

After the meal, someone pulled out some old wedding albums that everyone enjoyed perusing...

Then we headed over to Taryn's grandparents' house, where Taryn took a few moments to write a note in her wedding day gift for Eric...

I also went down the road a bit to where the guys were getting ready at another aunt's house.

Taryn's grandma fastened her own watch onto Taryn's wrist as her "something borrowed", then she did this {melt my heart!}:

Thank you for allowing me into your world for a little bit--it's a lovely place to be! You guys are the best! It is so refreshing to see a couple with so much love for each other, for their families, and most of all, for God!
