Jake + Tara | Wedding


meet the couple

Explain your love story:

It began over nine years ago in high school. Our teenage lust grew to young crazy love, which grew into deep friendship and companionship. In July of 2017, we traveled to Banff, Alberta Canada. Jake planned the trip as a surprise and I had no idea where we were driving to. When we arrived, we absolutely fell in love with Banff! We spent our days hiking the mountains, viewing the gorgeous blue waters and taking in all the breathtaking landscape. Near the end of our trip, we took a gondola ride up part of a mountain and hiked to the top. All alone on the top of this mountain, Jake popped the question. Banff will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

What is your go-to date as a couple?

Long chats over dinner at one of our favorite places.

What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?

Honestly, you will never be able to please everyone. Focus on what is important to you. In the end, you are vowing to spend the rest of your life with the person you love and starting a new beginning together.

What's the best relationship/marriage advice you have received?

Travel together! Traveling can be stressful and push you out of your comfort zone. If you can handle traveling together, the more likely you will be able be have a successful marriage together. Most importantly, there is nothing better than seeing the world with your best friend.
