Taylar + Dennis – Wedding at Kirk House Gardens

As Taylar walked down the aisle towards Dennis, the tears began to flow, rolling down his cheeks so quickly that they left a moist line on his cheek. It was one of the most emotional and sweetest moments I’ve ever witnessed during a processional at a wedding. Taylar was glowing, as she made her way down the aisle, her eyes locked on where Dennis was standing. I felt that if we all left, they wouldn’t even notice because they were only seeing each other. It was such a beautiful moment to witness.


Taylar is one of three brides I’ve worked with this year who is a recent graduate from the nursing school at South Alabama. The fact that she is in the healthcare field does not surprise me at all because Taylar is such a nurturing person. Her sweet personality is instantly endearing to anyone who meets her, but what’s even more special is that she found an equally sweet man to marry when she met Dennis. These two have such a special story, from their love-at-first-sight meeting, to their promise to wait to marry until after they’d graduated from college (an achievement they both accomplished this past May). Their wedding day was one of sweet joy. The love that their family and friends have for them is a further testament as to what wonderful people they are. I felt so honored to document their first day as husband and wife.


This wedding was also my first to photograph at the Kirk House Gardens and Home, located in Axis, Alabama. Despite the chilly fall weather, Taylar and Dennis, who fell in love with the property when they first toured it, were totally game for using up every ounce of golden hour light for their “Just Married” bride and groom portraits. It was a total dream! Taylar was so stunning in her gorgeous gown and Dennis so dapper in his suit, that I could not have taken a bad photo of these two if I tried. They looked like fashion models that stepped out of a magazine!


Taylar and Dennis, you both have the most beautiful hearts and I am so thankful to have worked with you both on your special day! May God bless you both and your marriage! Thank you for being amazing!
