Tamara & Carl {Married}

Just 3 weeks ago you met the gorgeous Tamara and Carl during their engagement shoot with their beautiful son James! … Time sure does fly and here we are at their amazing wedding day.
The day that Carl asked Tamara to marry him, she hesitated when answering… not because she had any doubts… she simply just wanted to soak in the atmosphere of the moment through and through! This was a moment she would never get back and wanted to remember the feeling of it… forever.  Of course this made Carl sweat a little bit, but there was no doubt in her mind… she just wanted to be married to Carl. And finally… that day was here.

There was no sweating on their wedding day, first of all… it was a balmy 12 degrees… and secondly… Tamara simply couldn’t WAIT to say I do at the aisle!!

They chose the gorgeous Trents Vineyard for their big day. 100 friends and family (exactly!! ;-) ) joined them in the excitement. The details were perfect, Carl scrubbed up nice and his beautiful bride was sensational! …

On the 17th of October, there were no Roses blooming in Tamara and Carl’s garden. On the 18th, two Roses had appeared. And that’s even more perfect as Tamara’s middle name is Rose!!

Over at Trents Vineyard, the details look gorgeous… and especially this special feature. This is the door obtained from Carl’s childhood family home that has recently been demolished due to the earthquakes. It’s pretty special that a piece of his childhood could be present at the wedding.
