Tracy and Larry Said "I Do": A Sweet and Intimate Tallahassee Wedding at the Woman's Club

Here's a funny story... when our dear friend Larry told us where he and his beautiful sweetheart Tracy were going to have their wedding, he described the venue as "just one big room, and it has some big windows." So when we drove down to Tallahassee this past weekend to celebrate (and photograph, naturally) their wedding, we weren't sure quite what to expect.  We have since decided that Larry is a master of the art of understatement!  The Woman's Club of Tallahassee is a BEAUTIFUL, historic venue for an intimate wedding! Here's a little sneak peek at our friends' beautiful ceremony under the live oaks...IMG_5201IMG_7678IMG_7690The Woman's Club is nestled amongst a grove of live oaks in a quiet old residential neighborhood of Tallahassee. It's been an important part of Florida's history since the early 1900's.  So many meaningful events have happened under these oaks! And it's just as beautiful on the inside... I loved this airy, light-filled space.IMG_4794 Tracy entered the ceremony on the arms of her two big brothers. They escorted her so carefully and proudly!IMG_4858IMG_4875IMG_4881Surrounded by their loved ones, Larry and Tracy said their vows under the beautiful spreading branches of this gorgeous live oak tree. Their ceremony was simple, heartfelt, and joyful.IMG_7825IMG_7847IMG_4891IMG_7856IMG_4915After the ceremony Larry & Tracy stole away for a few quiet moments together. I found them though! IMG_7878IMG_7870IMG_7973IMG_5006IMG_7976Tracy was so elegant in her lovely gown. It suited her perfectly!IMG_7997IMG_7971IMG_8018IMG_8050IMG_5036IMG_5046IMG_8054Oh my goodness. This CAKE. It was beautiful and creamy and sweet and delicious. I should have hidden some pieces in my camera bag to take home!IMG_7651Tracy and Larry baked cookies and candied pecans to tuck into these precious little favor boxes for their guests. Yes, you read that right - they BAKED them. Hundreds of cookies. Hundreds of pecans. By THEMSELVES. This should help you understand what awesome people they are. (I should have put some more of these in my camera bag too.)IMG_7627IMG_7667Such a sweet, sweet first dance.IMG_8122IMG_8127I caught this tiny wedding guest peeking through the window!IMG_8227IMG_8228IMG_5212Speaking of tiny wedding guests... these two little dudes had some MOVES.IMG_8218IMG_8345IMG_8380IMG_8249We caught a future videographer practicing his craft.... <3IMG_5128IMG_8281Behave, Larry!IMG_8265IMG_8269IMG_8275Outside, the sky darkened to the deep deep blue of a warm Florida night, and the lamplight gave a golden glow to the Spanish moss. Inside, wedding guests danced and laughed with the bride and groom. It was a lovely ending to a beautiful day, and a wonderful beginning to the rest of Tracy and Larry's love story.IMG_8423IMG_8395IMG_8398IMG_8401IMG_5226Tracy and Larry, we were so SO happy to see you two say "I do!" We loved every minute of your wedding weekend, and we are so thankful for our enduring friendship. May God bless you as you begin your life as husband and wife!                                                                                         "Make new friends, but keep the old; those are silver, these are gold." - Joseph Parry
