tabor + courtney // something old and something new


tabor’s parent’s watched . . .

their son stand under the same tree they had been married under 24 years before.


Courtney, the soon-to-be Mrs. Belcher, got ready with her ladies in an upstairs studio of her aunt’s house. Sunlight spilled in as finishing touches were put on her bridal look. In just a few moments, she would be walking down the aisle to her high school sweetheart.


Tabor’s cousin fastened pearls on Courtney- the pearls belonged to their grandmother (pictured on the right).


the whole crew


These groomsmen photos were something else! I knew most of the guys from high school, so they had no problem being crazy & fun even in front of the camera.

The bridesmaids photos were not as wild, but lovely instead. I loved capturing all the girls and their excitement.


first look

These are always the sweetest moments!

the ceremony

Smaller, intimate weddings are always so special. The laid-back feeling is my favorite. Courtney walked through two white doors and down the aisle to her soon to be husband. There were songs, prayers, laughter & tears. They tied a large rope hanging from the tree for their unity ceremony which was such a neat idea.


mr. and mrs. belcher

toasts to the newly weds


can we talk about the fact that these two cut their cake with a sword?


The mother-son dance

turned into a groomsmen-flashmob


the father-daughter dance

sweet as could be

Tabor and Courtney’s dance was next level. I seriously felt like we were watching a dancing with the stars performance.


we snuck away for a moment after the ceremony

to capture the joy between these two. As the sun set, friend and family danced and celebrated the start of forever for Tabor and Courtney.
