A crazy random happenstance of being at the right place at the right time starts the story
between Taylor and JJ, She was practicing for her license when she stopped with her mom at
the CO-OP in Liberty. Taylor’s cousin was there and introduced them. They quickly went on a
first date to see a scary movie, became high school sweethearts and have watched horror
movies together ever since.
After 5 years of dating, JJ Proposed to Taylor at her Grandma’s house. She didn’t see it
coming and had actually been talking with her grandma wondering when he was finally going to
ask. When you know you’re with the one your heart belongs to, the waiting can feel endless.
JJ and Taylor were such amazing people to work with, I was so excited to be with them on their
wedding day and was so happy to be around such love. JJ was full of lighthearted laughter,
stayed so positive, and made everyone who was near him feel at ease. Taylor and JJ built their
relationship on supporting each other, being there by each other’s side and going through life’s
up and downs laughing the whole time.
The wedding was beautiful! They blended themselves together in a unity ceremony pouring
sand, during the reception because they were so excited for the first kiss, they forgot during the actual ceremony. and had a sparkler send off at the end of the night. A luxurious family heirloom that has
been in 6 Generation’s and worn in Taylor’s Grandma’s wedding was stunning to see, and
amazing to learn the history of. Their reception had all of our favorites: An Anniversary dance,
the dollar dance and a magnificent cake that was just as enjoyable to look at as it was to eat!
As someone who has been in and out of the very CO-OP that the lovely couple met at probably
a thousand times, I can’t help but wonder how many other people happened to be at the right
place at the right time to find their ultimate connection. My husband and I felt so grateful to be
able to capture their day and enjoy so many small meaningful moments between people who so
deeply loved each other.
