Taryn & Justin

Three years af­ter Taryn Adams and Justin Dando started dat­ing, Taryn came home to a can­dlelit apart­ment strewn with rose petals and Justin dressed to the nines on one knee. Clas­si­cally ro­man­tic, the cou­ple went into wedding plan­ning with a more ca­sual vi­sion in mind. “We didn’t want the glitz and glam of the wed­dings you see in the movies,” says Taryn. They de­cided to fo­cus on the beauty of the out­doors with a back­yard cer­e­mony and no backup plan. “We were ex­tremely lucky to have the weather turn out as per­fect as it did,” says Taryn. Af­ter months of Pin­ter­est-in­spired DIY projects—all of the cer­e­mony decor was made by the bridal party, fam­ily and friends—and headaches, “it’s safe to say I am still DIY’d out,” she says. It was “a lot of fun, but ex­haust­ing and repet­i­tive.” Thank­fully, the big day turned out beau­ti­ful with a thou­sand per­fect mo­ments to re­mem­ber: “But see­ing Justin’s re­ac­tion as I was com­ing down the aisle def­i­nitely tops them all,” says Taryn. They moved to the Spring­field Lake rec cen­tre for the re­cep­tion, and couldn’t have been hap­pier with how it all turned out. “The whole day was just filled with so much love and ex­cite­ment!”
