Burr Oak Elopement | Hey Thompsons!

I was ordained six months ago & was incredibly pleased that my first elopement took place at Burr Oak.

I got ordained in order to service my clients that choose to get married privately. I’m gonna sound like a robot on repeat if you follow me on social media, but I truly just want this drilled into your head.

It is 2019. You wanna have an intimate elopement in Burr Oak Woods? DO IT.

Bergundy has never been one for tons of attention. We’ve been friends since we were in High School & it’s just not her style. She’s known she’s wanted to marry Ryan for literal ages, and when she texted me to tell me he proposed at their cabin in Colorado, I SHRIEKED out loud in excitement. I’ve never seen a couple more fit for each other. Ryan is so laid back. He is determined. He is a hard worker who just wants the ability to provide and care for them both, their two dogs, and their cat, Bruce.

Spoiler alert, if you scroll down you’ll see their pups. Sade & Etta. Named for Sade Adu & Etta James. Ryan also LOVES old school soul. Every time I go visit them, I feel like it’s a Sunday morning and my mom has turned on the music to get up and clean. It’s relaxing and he loves to grab Bebe and dance with her in their living room.

Basically, I’m saying that when Bebe texted me and told me she was over the whole “big wedding” thing already and just wanted to get married quickly and privately, I understood. Later, she came back to tell me she just wanted me to do it. I was overjoyed. We picked up & with her best friend and Ryan’s brother and we headed to Burr Oak. I wrote a short and sweet ceremony, they said their I Dos and in the 30 degree weather, Bebe and Ryan declared their love for each other.

This fall, they’ll have a large party to celebrate with their other friends & family, but for now they got to do this. Love each other. In a pretty place and with the stress of a huge day off their shoulders.

Does this sound like something that interests you?

Head over to my contact form! I’m offering this service now & am so excited to do so!

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
