Tara was literally floating on air when Brent asked her to marry him. During a vacation in New Mexico visiting Brent’s family, Brent planned a hot air balloon ride for him and Tara as a fun activity during their trip. “I was excited when Brent told me about the ride, but was so scared once we got there,” says Tara. “The thought of hanging from a basket thousands of feet in the air was not comforting, but I got on.” 

While actually enjoying soaring over the city of Albuquerque, Tara turned around and noticed Brent bent down claiming that he had an itch on his calf. He then managed to get down on one knee in the tight space and asked Tara for the honor of spending the rest of her life with him. "I wanted to call everyone to share the news, but couldn't because we were 9,000 feet in the air!" says Tara.

The couple announced their wedding with save the dates, which were magnets featuring three pictures from their engagement shoot and then sent out custom-made invitations for their summer wedding. The event was held at Larkfield in East Northport, where they had a simple traditional ceremony. “We included an Irish blessing and an inspiring passage on marriage, and we exchanged our own vows,” says Tara. The bride, who wore a satin A-line gown with a hand-beaded bodice from Bridal Reflections o Massapequa and carried a bouquet of white hydrangeas and cymbidium orchids accented by feathers, walked down an aisle lined with 10-foot structures featuring cascading phalaenopsis orchids. Brent, the handsome groom decked out in a black tuxedo with a white orchid boutonniere, awaited his bride under a hydrangea-and-crystal decorated gazebo. Tara’s bridesmaids wore plum-colored chiffon gowns and carried bouquets of purple lisianthus, green orchids, and yellow roses wrapped in fabric matching their dresses. The groomsmen were dressed in black tuxedos yellow rose boutonnieres. After the ceremony, everyone toasted with glasses of strawberry-infused champagne.

Their reception space at Larkfield was set up with a cool whit crystal setting, which changed into different colors throughout the night. Each table was deco-rated with unique centerpieces designed by James Anthony Floral. One table featured a tall topiary ball with white hydrangea and roses with cascading orchids and surrounding votive candles. “And we had the lighting set up in a way that it accented the centerpieces beautifully,” says Tara. The structures used for the ceremony were brought in for the reception and placed around the sweetheart table and the bar. The seating chart was a “valet board” where guests collected keys with their seating assignment on them. “The seating cards were attached to skeleton keys that doubled as bottle openers our guests were able to keep as mementos,” says Tara. “In lieu of favors we chose to donate to the American Cancer Society and Alzheimer's Association on behalf of our grandparents who have passed away.” 

During the bride and groom’s traditional first dance the wanted to have some fun and get the party started. “We broke from our slow dance into the “Tootsee Roll” to get our guests into a frenzy,” says Tara. “Seeing Brent let loose during our firs dance was my favorite memory of the day. We had so much fun and our dance really kicked off the night.” Guests dined on a true celebratory feast including multi-continental appetizers, followed by antipasto for the first course, a ravioli trio for the second course, and a choice of rack of lamb, filet mignon salmon, shrimp scampi, chicken rollatini, and a vegetarian dish for the main course. “We also had an open bar that served great mixed drinks all night,” says Tara. The four-tier wedding cake was decorated with purple cascading flowers to match the bridesmaid dresses, and consisted of chocolate cake with layers of chocolate mousse and chocolate chip cannoli; and vanilla cake with vanilla chip cannoli and vanilla mousse. “The fourth tier on top, which we’re saving to have on our first anniversary, was a chocolate cake with peanut butter filling” says Tara. The couple included ice cream and a candy cart to accompany the wedding cake for dessert. Then everyone danced until the late hours. “Our band, Code Bleu, was outstanding,” says Tara. “The music selection was awesome, and our guests were on the dance floor the entire time.” 

Tara and Brent started their newlywed life together with a honeymoon in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  They spent eight days enjoying the island and lounging under the sun. “It was amazing,” says Tara”. “We loved everything from the couple’s massage to the romantic dinner on the beach.”  

While planning the wedding, Tara allowed herself to truly enjoy the process. "Enjoy the whole experience of planning your wedding," says Tara. "Just have fun and don't worry about a thing, the night will be perfect no matter what!"
