Tara & Tim got married at Irons Mill Farmstead in New Wilmington, PA on April 27th, 2019. The wedding was perfectly put together and the venue looked as amazing as Tara did! The flowers and greenery were a perfect touch and were even put together by her very own bridesmaid and best friend Caitlin Strobel! The wedding was seamless and wouldn’t have been the same without Tara’s sisters’ and mom’s help too!
Tara & Tim’s favorite date: Rachel’s Roadhouse and a walk around Grove City College’s Campus. Having graduated from GC, Tara was so excited to share that part of her life with TIm. They talked and walked and fell in love. The two of them met at work!
Tara & Tim love to watch the TV show Suits, cook together, make homemade Fajitas, and hang out with their fur babies Annie & Iris. Annie even got to be included in their engagement session I shot at at Fern Valley Nursery in Renfrew, PA.
Tara said a favorite moment of hers at the wedding was hearing the speeches. Tara’s sister, Tim’s (hilarious) best friend, and Tara’s father all seriously nailed it. They will forever cherish their sweet words. Sometimes Tara said she will randomly think about her Dad’s speech and start tearing up.
I asked Tara why she chose Irons Mills and she said they did a lot of research online but this was the only venue they actually visited. She said it was the perfect combination of the character, elegance, and magic that her and Tim were looking for. Tara loved that the barn is not your typical rustic feel but that it was classic, quaint, and charming all at the same time. I have to say I agree- the huge chandelier itself is just perfection! Fun fact: Tara and Leah, the event coordinator, went to college together! Leah was so easy to get a long with and fun to work with- us vendors appreciate that!!
Tara grew up in Cleveland, Ohio so she was hesitant at firs to comply with the Yinzer tradition of the epic Cookie Table. She finally caved and the planning started. Tara’s Aunt Jill helped plan and bake cookies all the way from Phoenix, AZ and Alex from Chicago even flew with 5 dozen of Tara’s favorite cookie for her wedding. The week before the wedding is when the final batches of cookies were planned to be made but Tara’s mom’s brand new double oven broke!! Then it MAGICALLY came back on for one night at they baked for hours to get everything done!
Tara and Tim had such a fun group of bridesmaids and groomsmen! They all danced the evening away and ended with a gorgeous sparkler send off from the barn entrance!
