Today’s beautiful feature by Tony Gambino Photography has made it’s way over from New Mexico and it’s really special. A wonderful example of contrasting styles being fused together to create a scheme that just works – even though on paper it perhaps shouldn’t. Relaxed bohemia and disciplined military? Who knew it would be utterly breath-taking. A good analogy for marriage really – when the chemistry is right it just works. Trust your instincts and let you heart rule.
From Bride Taylor: I made a list of three things that had to be absolutely perfect for our wedding and everything else I’d take a deep breath and get over it, if it didn’t turn out the way I had planned. That list was: wedding dress, outdoor reception, and photographer. The memories of our wedding are still fresh in my mind and I’m fairly confident I could relive every moment – braiding my lavender crown the morning of the ceremony, getting ready with my girls, singing down the aisle and turning all attendees – including my groom – into a pile of tears.
On photographer Tony: 50 years from now when Preston and I are old and wrinkly and are telling our little love story, I want to be able to show the love, the excitement, and the beauty of that day. That’s why I picked Tony. He listened to all my suggestions, looked at my Pinterest board, and ended up taking pictures that I will cherish. He was also more than just a photographer – one minute he was giving me a pep talk before the ceremony, and the next minute he was on top of the roof taking pictures of everyone dancing on the deck. He is a true artist and has continued to improve and amaze me.
What a beautiful recommendation of Tony and such a wonderful, charming way to view your wedding memories! Taylor and Preston created a timelessly styled day – so en vogue with the flower crowns and white bridesmaid gowns yet effortlessly elegant too. It’s the kind of wedding that won’t date – why? Because they sought inspiration from themselves – every detail can be tracked back to their identity as a couple. True wedding statement style and a beautiful boho bride.
