Taylor and Matt’s wedding day in Downtown Greenville was long-awaited and has been in the planning process for a while now! Taylor and Matt went to high school together in Greenville at Eastside High School and started dating while they were still in school! Which means that this day has been 12 years in the making and makes them high-school sweethearts! And what made it even better was that their friendships from high-school have lasted all through these different stages of life and a bunch of those friends were in their bridal party!
We started the day at Zen with Taylor and her bridesmaids while they got ready. There was a peaceful presence about the space, as Courtney and Kimberly with Hudson Park events prepped the space, flowers were arranged, and the girls hung out upstairs. We love calm wedding days!
Laura popped over to photograph Matt and his groomsmen getting ready and those photos got us SUPER excited! Give us some good window light and a blank wall and those crisp, clean getting ready photos will happen!! The groom deserves those photos too, right?? Matt wore a watch that was Taylor’s grandfather’s and the gold matched his ring so well and was the perfect accent to his suit.
Last Saturday happened to be Fall for Greenville weekend, but thankfully Zen is past Main Street, so we avoided the crowds completely! Which was not what we expected, but was very welcomed! We did photos in various parks around Greenville and despite all the logistics, we were ahead of schedule almost all day! Woohoo!
Their ceremony was incredibly special as their officiant read letters that Taylor and Matt had written to each other. There were many tears and laughs and tender moments! And once they were officially Mr. & Mrs. they celebrated!! The Emerald Empire Band always does a phenomenal job and Saturday was no exception! Their dance floor was PACKED.
Taylor and Matt shared a private last dance before they exited and you’ll have to scroll down to see the final reaction of one of the band members as they finished their dance and cheered before heading out to say goodbye! That photo had to be included! Vendors who are invested in the couple are the best vendors!
