Today’s charming real wedding, brought to us by Laura Lee Photography, is as heartwarming as it is elegant! Here’s Laura to tell us more:

Jamie and James Taylor, 10 years in the making. That’s how long these two have been together. They met when they were kids, but it wasn’t until sophomore year in high school when they were sitting next to each other in class passing notes that the spark of a relationship was born.

See more after the cut!

The day started at Grand Cascades Lodge, where they got ready with their wedding party. They exchanged gifts, and JT threw it back to the first gift he ever got her – a teddy bear with a bracelet around it. The first time was a teddy bear with a necklace, so this really brought their story full circle.

The ceremony was held outside in front of the arbor as the sun set and lit up the sky a beautiful golden color. Their good friend, Pete, officiated the ceremony and the ALL the guests were laughing constantly. The reception was held in the Grand Ballroom in the Clubhouse at Crystal Springs and the party never stopped.
