Jared & Taylor: The Barn at Hornbaker Gardens Wedding Photos

October 8, 2019

Hey friends, and Happy Tuesday! Get ready, because we’re about to share one heck of a gorgeous blog post with you all today!!! We had the absolute best time getting to spend Saturday with Taylor and Jared!! Just wait until you see their gorgeous Barn at Hornbaker Gardens wedding photos- these are some of our favorite portraits from our entire 2019 season thus far, so you know it’s going to be good!!! Ahh!

Taylor and Jared have been a part of the 2019 Caitlin & Luke lineup for quite some time now, and Taylor and I have been working together to plan all the details associated with these guys’ wedding for quite some time!!! They had the sweetest (and coldest!) engagement session last fall, where it even snowed a bit- and their wedding day arrived so fast! We truly cannot believe this sweet day has already come and gone- oh my goodness gracious. The day of Taylor and Jared’s wedding, the forecast showed quite a bit of rain on the way- and guys, we finished all of Taylor and Jared’s portraits for their entire wedding day just about ten minutes before the downpour began! Is that amazing timing or what?! We’re so thankful that we were blessed with a break in the weather so that we could get these two the outdoor portraits they’ve always dreamed of!!!

Taylor and Jared, you two are just the best!!! It’s been our total joy to get to know you both over the past several months, and we cannot wait to see where married life takes you two! We love that because you two have been together for so long, not only is your love for one another SO evident- but your deep friendship is undeniable, as well, and that’s something too special for words. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us into this beautiful season of your life to celebrate you both- it’s been an honor, and we are so excited to share so many favorite images with you all today! It was so hard to narrow down our favorites for this post because we have SO MANY!!! 😉

Love you two!!! Xoxo!
Caitlin & Luke
