When I think of the word hospitality, this couple comes to mind. And in fact, not just this couple, but their entire family and wedding party were some of the most hospitable people I have ever met. From the welcome bags in the guest rooms, to the fans on the chairs during the ceremony, to the private suites where guests could celebrate in the company of their immediate family or group of friends. (per COVID precautions), there wasn't a detail that didn't have their guests' comfort in mind.
Jen was beaming from the moment I walked into her bridal suite until I said goodnight to her and her new husband well after midnight. Her excitement to become Mrs. Tabler showed on every inch of her face. She knew that day she wasn't getting ready to just I do, she was getting ready to commit a lifetime to the man of her dreams. She had waited for this moment for a long time and it was finally here.
Trevor was a ball of nerves a few hours before the ceremony, as kinks in all of the details were being worked out. But the moment his bride stepped out of the gondola-yes, she rode to the ceremony site in a GONDOLA!-the calmest and most assured look washed upon his face. His best yes was walking towards him.
They wrote their own vows and read them to one another as tears streamed down their faces. I'm quite certain there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd after they got done vowing to love and serve each other for the rest of their lives, no matter what. They could hardly wait until the end when they were announced Mr. and Mrs. Tabler, to embrace in their first kiss as husband and wife. As the sun set behind the mountains their friends and family sipped on Champagne while they took their first dance as one.
Trevor and Jen-your love for each other is what makes marriage last. It's not founded on perfection, but on two people committing to become the best version of themselves every day for the rest of their lives. I have no doubt you will inspire and bless so many marriages to come!
I loved every moment of this gorgeous day. Thank you for allowing me to capture you as you became husband and wife. What an honor.
