Tara and JJ traveled all the way from L.A., pup Laila in tow, to be married at Saltwater Farm Vineyard on an absolutely stunning early October day this past fall.

Tara and JJ, who met in their early college years and now both work in the entertainment biz, have been together for over a decade and decided to host their wedding closer to Tara’s family in Connecticut.

Tara was simply breathtaking (the girls at the Vineyard are still talking about her Mantilla-style veil), her nephews were beyond adorable (cuteness overload, they were like real-life tuxedo-clad Russian nesting dolls), and JJ looked like James Bond’s younger brother (see black and white photo below).

There was a timeless elegance to the table settings, from the flower boxes overflowing with garden flowers and greenery, beautifully calligraphed quotes on each table, the herd-accented napkins and “naked” wedding cake – not to mention cannoli-to-go wedding favors.

Even Mother Nature was on board delivering nothing short of a picture perfect afternoon for these two lovebirds.

And what better way to share the memories of all their years together with their guests than this LED fairy light photo display above the fire place which JJ set up with the help of the wedding party as surprise for his bride.
