Taylor & Ryan | Lion’s Gate Wedding | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer

Y’all I am so excited to share Taylor & Ryan’s wedding day!!! I first talked with Taylor in the fall of 2019 as she and Ryan were planning their April 2020th wedding day. Well we all know what happened in March/April here in SC of 2020 and with all the changes they had to indefinitely postpone their big celebration and wedding. They were able to elope last March but knew they still wanted their wedding and celebration!!! As 2020 passed I would check in with Taylor to see what they were thinking and because Ryan is in the military it was hard to nail anything down. Skip ahead to February of this year and we found an available date that almost ALL of their original vendors were available to make their day a reality!!!

So on Friday, April 16th in front of family and friends Taylor & Ryan renewed their vows and celebrated their marriage and love for one another. It was a day filled with so much joy, laughter, tears and thankfulness!!! It was the most beautiful April day!! Taylor & Ryan it has been an honor to get to know y’all and watch y’all handle everything that has been thrown at y’all with dignity and grace. To know you two is to know love and joy and to know that even if there are a thousand people in the room… you care about the person that’s standing right in front of y’all soo much and like they are the ONLY person in the room (I can’t begin to tell you how special it makes someone feel!!). You two love your family and friends soo much and they love y’all and it showed in every way on April 16th!!! Thank y’all so much for wanting me to be there to document your day!!! It was an honor and I am soooo excited to share a few of my favorite images from April 16th!!
