Classic Blue & Elegant Wedding from Emilia Jane Photography

Happy Thursday, friends! Can you believe it’s been one week since we stuffed ourselves full of stuffing and turkey?! That’s almost, a little bit depressing. Mainly because my mom’s stuffing this year was particularly superb. It went so fast and I want more! To wane my woes, I’d love to share this wedding and love story from Emilia Jane Photography with you! It’s classic, blue, elegant, and beautiful too!

Tara and Majeid met in high school and quickly became close friends. Majeid was someone Tara could talk to about anything. One night, after talking on the phone for hours, Majeid finally gathered enough courage to ask Tara out on a date.

They went out on Tara’s birthday to the Old Spaghetti Factory. Majeid was calm, cool, and even had a card and candy waiting for her in the car!! But Tara was a nervous wreck. She admittedly talked Majeif’s ear off that night! But despite the nervous chatter, both recognized that something special was happening between them. Each day, Tara thanks God that they were lucky enough to find one another.

Majeid planned the perfect engagement, solidifying in Tara’s mind how lucky she was to have such a thoughtful man in her life. She’d mentioned to him long ago that she’d never been to the Nutcracker but had always wanted to go. He bought her tickets for Christmas, but had so much more prepared for that night than she realized.

After the ballet, they walked down to the Old Spaghetti Factory (where they’d had their first date) for dinner. Walking around downtown Louisville after dinner, they made a quick stop at Borders. Not unusual for Tara, who wound up buying a few books. For Majeid though, it was a detour and a moment to gather his courage for what he was about to do next.

Walking out onto The Belvedere, an area in Louisville that overlooks the Ohio River, Majeid got down on one knee. Her answer, of course, was yes!

{From the Bride} Our wedding day was incredible. From beginning to end, we could not have asked for a better day. It was filled with nervous anticipation and excitement. I remember most of the details, but most of all I remember how happy I was to have finally reached the moment we’d both been waiting for! We did not see each other before the ceremony because I wanted us to have the special moment of seeing each other as I walked down the aisle.

Our first dance song was You Make It Real by James Morrison. He is a British artist who we discovered when I spent a summer in London. I had a chance to go to the Concert by Diana, and I called Majeid while James Morrison was singing. Majeid and I were both blown away by how incredible he was. You Make It Real was not the song he sang that day, but it is a song that hits home for us.

{Advice for Couples} The best dating advice that we could give is to take time each day to focus solely on your partner. Remember that you are a team, and remember to compromise. Many arguments can be avoided just by conceding on certain issues and helping your other half when they need it. When planning your wedding, focus on the fact that the day is about getting married to the person you love, and not a million tiny details.
