Both Chris plus all of us here at Clove & Kin can be terrible with secrets, so we can’t keep keep secret about how much we LOVED this elegant and sweet La Jolla Woman’s Club wedding.
Sometimes at Clove and Kin, we get to work with people who truly get what we mean when we say we want our clients to savor the day. Since it’s such a monumental day in their lives, we want our clients to truly take the time to enjoy the small moments and being with one another– and Chris and Tara truly GOT that. Whether it was stealing glances throughout the day or Chris using his phone to take his own photos of Tara while we took photos of her on the beach, we absolutely adored shooting this wedding.
We don’t even think we could name a favorite part of the wedding as there was not a single part of the day that we didn’t love from the perfectly coordinated color scheme planned by the couple and Kristana Marie Events to the speeches by all of their friends and family that made Chris and Tara tear up.
It’s not often that you hear someone say that there is not a single thing that they dislike about someone, but it’s clear why Chris’s mother, Chris, and all of us here at Clove and Kin love Tara. During the wedding, Tara even welcomed a family touring her venue that walked into her wedding, and sent them off with flowers, and made sure all the guests were able to take home the rest of the stunning centerpieces from Organic Elements. It’s no wonder why Chris describes her as the kind of person who “can actually change the world” if she treats even strangers walking into her wedding with kindness.
It’s not just Tara we love; Chris is a truly incredible person who lifts Tara up while pursuing his own endeavors and passions. It isn’t often that you see a couple who compliments one another so well; whether it’s their shared interests, the way that they encourage one another to be their best and truly believe in one another’s ability to do so, Chris and Tara are a couple that fit together perfectly.
To Chris and Tara– a MILLION thank you’s for letting us be a part of your incredible day. When we say that our couples inspire us, we truly mean it– especially with you two. When we heard in every toast how you two were perfect together, we completely understood why. The way that you two look at one another makes it clear that you feel nothing but pure love and admiration towards one another. Your love is truly that of epic romance novels, and we feel SO SO lucky to have been able to play witness to such a special moment for you two.
