We’re so excited to share with you these beautiful images from our recent #TKinNOLA photo shoot (images taken by the lovely and incredibly talented Catherine Guidry– @CatherineGuidry and Heather Grimm). And don’t worry, there is plenty more where this came from. We’ll be sharing Q&A’s with the entire #TKinNOLA team this entire week with more exclusive photos to be seen here, and of course on our Instagram (follow as at @Tara_Keely) and Pinterest page.
These stunning bouquets are compliments of the highly talented Destiny Pinson of Poppy and Mint (@PoppyandMint)!
The accessories were absolutely stunning thanks to Mae Me (@maemebridal) Bridal in Metairie, LA!
The South was the perfect place to hold our first Tara Keely inspiration shoot. These Louisiana sketches (by non other than Heather Grimm for Cottonwood South-@Cottonwoodsouth) were a beautiful added touch.
Ashley Sievert (@AshleySievert) and Sara Marie did such an incredible job with hair and make up. Their interpretation of who a Tara Keely bride is and inspires to be on her wedding day was flawless.
How stunning are these girls? Huge thanks to:
Heather Grimm (@HeadyGrimm)

JLM COUTURE LOVE STORY # 3
Our proposal Story:
Note: I was completely and totally unaware that I was going to get engaged this weekend. Like not expecting at all … So, we took a trip down to St. Pete Beach for a Coldplay concert. (Which was awesome, btw!) The next day we enjoyed the beach, sunshine and cocktails. It was such a perfect day, I even mentioned that to him before I knew what was in store that evening. So evening rolls around and he says put on a pretty dress, were going somewhere nice. (Clue one, which I was completely oblivious to.) We dine at this adorable fancy tapas restaurant and have a couple glasses of wine. Perry (oh yeah that’s my hubs name) was as cool as a cucumber at this point. We finish dinner and decide just to walk around and find a place to have a few drinks and hang out. We “stumble” across this rooftop bar that overlooks the ocean. Downstairs is the crappy restaurant that has a note next to the elevator, “engagements & weddings”. I actually said “who would want to get engaged in this craphole?!” Lol yes I said those words. Ugh, worst girlfriend ever. He shrugs it off and laughs. We get in the elevator and it opens up to this gorgeous rooftop bar with breathtaking views of the ocean. I redeemed myself by saying “oh ok I could engaged up here.” Still haven’t the slightest clue what was going to happen. So, we find great seats, order a glass of wine and he turns to me and says “hey I’ll bet I can guess the time of the sun setting closer than you can. If you win, I’ll give you a surprise.” I laugh, Game On, I love a challenge, especially when it involves surprises! Get this, I actually right then, giggle and pat his pockets and say “you don’t have a ring in there, do ya?!” I kid you not, his face went stark white. I was like omg, too soon? Must be too soon. Damn. (Ps the ring was in the other pocket.) So as the sun is setting he says “well looks like I’m going to win, but you can still have your surprise.” (He knew what time the sun was setting. He looked it up. Cheater.) He pulls out a necklace that I had eyeballed in a store about a month ago. It was a message in a bottle necklace. A tiny trinket necklace, if you will. I was so excited that he remembered. As I’m putting it on, he says “do you think there’s anything written inside?” I’m still clueless at this point and say “no its just for looks babe.” He says “maybe we should check inside for a message.” He takes it from me, opens the tiny bottle and puts this minuscule scroll in my palm. Now I still have no clue what’s going on. I’m not super intuitive, evidently. I think to myself okay its just going to say I love you. I start to unravel the message and in tiny cursive letters it reads “Marry Me?” I look over and he’s getting down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. I immediately start hyperventilating and saying omg omg omg followed with a big “YES!” and the ugliest cry face you have ever seen. (It wasn’t pretty folks.) People around us our clapping and cheering and ordering bottles of champagne. It was the most perfect night besides my future wedding night!! :)
Hope you loved our engagement story! I absolutely loved that night and even more, Our gorgeous wedding day that included the most stunning gown I’ve ever laid eyes on. It wasn’t even zipped the whole way before I was in tears and in love. I actually got to meet Mr. Lazaro at Bridals By Lori. Talk about pinch me moment. So awesome! :)
Gown was purchased from Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, Georgia.
