Sam and Taylor | Wedding at Silver Oaks Chateau

If I had to put one adjective to Sam and Taylor’s wedding, I would say FUN. These two love board games, and so creatively incorporated them into their wedding day with a themed seating chart as well as game tables set out in the balcony during the reception! My husband and I have most of a bookshelf filled with games, so I knew these were people after my own heart! Sam and the guys had a fire and a card game going while they waited for things to get going that morning, and while the girls were busy getting ready and finishing the details, they had donuts and cheese to munch on, so you could say it was a good morning for them too. Taylor was one of the most relaxed brides that I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing – so laid-back, and so intent on enjoying each moment.

Silver Oaks Chateau never disappoints with beautiful places and angles to shoot from and today was no different. The deep purple and red accents brought a pop of color to the wood tones in the great room, and the weather was warm enough for all of the guests to enjoy s’mores by the fire pit as a little post-brunch snack.

Sam and Taylor, it was so evident by your wedding party, family, and friends that you guys love people well, and I have no doubt that you will continue to do so as a married couple as well. Congratulations, you two!
