Tayler & Dylan

September 25, 2013

They’ve waited forever for each other. They’ve prayed for one another. And a few years ago, while counseling children at a Christian Youth Camp, the Lord drew their hearts together.

During her vows, Tayler mentioned a letter she had written to her future husband when she was just eleven years old, and told of the desires of her heart that he be a compassionate, Godly man. Dylan is those things and more, and the two of them make an incredible couple with humble hearts for serving the Lord and loving each other. Their wedding day was incredible, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it.

It’s an indescribable feeling to watch two people who have waited their entire lives for each other come together to be married! Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0001 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0002 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0003 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0004Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0005Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0007Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0006 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0008 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0009 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0010 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0011 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0012 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0013 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0014Morgan was one of the cutest flower girls I’ve ever seen! Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0015 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0016 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0017 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0018 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0019Stunning, Tayler! Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0020 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0021 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0022 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0023 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0024 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0025 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0026One of my favorite moments of the day was when Tayler’s bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law surrounded her in prayer. Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0027 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0028 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0029 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0030 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0031Beautiful, ladies! Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0032Instead of doing a First Look, Tayler and Dylan decided to spend some quiet time in prayer together, and to exchange letters they had written one another. Dylan’s excitement to see his girl was so apparent, he asked several times if he could sneak a peak at her. Tayler knew they had waited this long, that he could make it another half hour. 🙂Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0033 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0034 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0035 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0036 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0037 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0038 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0039 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0040Tayler and her father shared a special moment as they did a Father/Daughter First Look.Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0041 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0042 Nikki Santerre Photography_Chamberlin Hampton Wedding_Tayler & Dylan_0043He sobbed when he saw her.

    This is my favorite NSP wedding/post! The father/daughter first look brought tears to my eyes. You truly captured the emotions. Love you girl! Keep up the amazing work! 😉

  3. Nikki, this wedding is STUNNING. Tayler is so lovely, and I just adore their beach portraits. I wouldn’t think grey and wine look so good together- but their day looks just dreamy!
