Meet the Tantum’s.
On November 21, 2015, Jeff, Vanessa and Owen all said “I do”. This was such a fun and lively wedding party. In fact, I think the term “wedding party” was best exemplified by The Tantum’s and their bridal party and guest. I believe this was the largest wedding I have photographed to date and let me tell you…this was a p a r t y!
The backdrop of the day was Stokesay Castle in Reading, PA . A gorgeous vintage castle that captured the essence of glamour and tradition. Tradition is important to Vanessa and Jeff. His father, Gordon, was presented at the wedding. An image of him was beautifully displayed on altar. A cheer was done for Mr. Tantum during the wedding reception- a full force chant – E-A- G- L- E- S!!! It was truly a goose-bump moment. You realize the impact of Gordon’s life when a room can be moved to cheer for a husband, father & grandfather who left behind such a beautiful legacy…
Jeff and Vanessa have an amazing little boy named Owen. He is light and life! He gave his daddy a pocket watch. The inscription reads “Every kid needs a hero to look up to. Daddy, thanks for being mine”. Owen was a true part of the day…from his walk down the aisle to the rock-star end to the night, he made this one of the most memorable weddings of my career. Thank you Owen!
The new Mr. + Mrs. had fun which I love so much! They truly enjoyed every moment and marinated in the laughter and not to mention…some sweet dance moves! A Hora was done at the end of the night which was a 1st for me and gosh I loved it! Chairs up! Hearts in union and lives joined forever! Here’s to you Mr. + Mrs. Tantum! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day and for allowing me to witness fun, family and forever! Sit back, grab a snack and enjoy the day that was a “Castle of dreams”…
All my love,
