We are elated to have Tara + Steve’s New Year’s Eve wedding to wrap up 2015 and ring in the new year! What a way to welcome in 2016!
Here’s how the couple met, in Tara + Steve’s words!
“We started working together in 2012 and finally got together in the summer of 2013 after a lot of office flirting. Because of the work issue, we dated in secret and only told close friends for the first 10 months of our relationship. Now that we have ‘come out’, it’s been a whirlwind of traveling, house searching and enjoying our time together!
Steve took me to Maui for my birthday in October and treated me to a morning of breakfast and spa treatments. Afterwards, he dropped down to one knee and popped the question with a photographer in the distance. We celebrated that night by going to a romantic Luau! Truly a birthday to remember.”
