Nine years (and two beautiful sons) into their wonderful partnership, Brett proposed to Tara who had this to say about their wedding: “I was so excited for the big day and walking down the aisle to marry the man I keep falling more and more in love with all these years we’ve been together. It all seemed so surreal and it still is…” Romantic, right?! Tara and Brett are super gorgeous, super in love and their wedding was a total extension of it. We’re especially into their venue, The Addison, a super cool 1920’s architectural gem on the beach!
What made the wedding special and unique?
Surprisingly being a girl I never dream of a wedding, so when Brett proposed the whole affair took a new meaning to me. He said that even though he loves me to the moon, he wants to exchange vows, how special is that? Participation of my friends and closest family members that made my vision of romance accented by blushes, pinks, golds and floral motifs a reality, made my wedding unique in a personal touch way.
Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!
Wedding gown is the first thing I thought I should get for my wedding! With so many diverse styles and designers, it’s not that easy to choose the right one..I personally wanted traditional dress with vintage tone that would bring elegance and sophistication into my special day. When I found Stella York gown I realized that it was it, it had all I wanted – a classical dreamy look with aerial soft chiffon skirt and strapless sweetheart bodice, a perfect fit for my big day!
What were some touches added to make it personal?
I love flowers so much, it had to be very personal, so I handpicked every type of flower I wanted in mine and bridesmaids bouquets. Also together with my close friend we created a chalkboard and it came out beautiful. Having a board with keys was Brett’s idea. Key symbolizes the opening and closing power and for our celebration Brett wanted to have many keys for new happy beginnings not only in our life, but in our guests’ lives, isn’t it sweet? The bold golden W letter sign stand for how strong and well build our Waltz family is.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
To me the most memorable part of the day was our wedding ceremony under the amazing banyan trees where I literally got carried away, I was so happy that the love of my life and I are tying the knot at our favorite place with our sons, closest family and friends, it was so magical and emotional to me.
Tell us how you met and became engaged.
Brett and I met about 9 years ago at our mutual friend’s party. When he asked me out for the first date, he introduced me to one of the best Chinese restaurants, took me to an amazing concert and got me one of the most delicious ice creams, so at the end of the day I was literally full, but only by yummy treats, but by Brett’s incredible personality. He has everything a man should have and sparks quickly became love! Two sons came naturally into our life and to me it never mattered if we are married or not, I had the best men in my life, but on one Valentine ‘s Day Brett proposed to me. He took me to a romantic getaway, I had no idea… of course I said Yes! I was so excited for the big day and walking down the aisle to marry the man I keep falling more and more in love with all these years we’ve been together. It all seemed so surreal and it still is…
