Celebrating after a loss can be so bittersweet, but Taylor and Bobby were determined to bring their family and friends together for their Alhambra Hall wedding.
Just months after they’d unexpectedly lost their second child, the couple and their toddler decided to find the hope amidst their heartbreak and make their strong family ties official in an outdoor ceremony and rousing reception in Mount Pleasant.
Taylor and Bobby’s family and friends surrounded them with love on their special day, and their vendors all went the extra mile to lift up this couple. Says photographer Cory Parker, “All of the vendors really went above and beyond to make their day absolutely perfect.”
The efforts of everyone created a memorable waterfront celebration that was filled with laughter, poignant moments, and even a few tears as Taylor and Bobby began a new chapter of their lives together.
CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS
Just months before they exchanged vows, Taylor and Bobby welcomed their second child, a little boy named Carson. While in the hospital, Carson became very ill, and after a brave fight, he passed away surrounded by those who loved him most.
Taylor and Bobby wanted their baby to be a part of the ceremony, just as his big brother Mason was, so they had a bear embroidered for Carson, and made sure it was sitting front and center as they exchanged vows.
Photos of Carson dangled from his mom’s bouquet and another was attached to his dad’s boutonniere.
Photographer Cory Parker remembers a particularly emotional moment, “At one point at the beginning of the ceremony Carson's big brother, Mason, walked up to the stuffed animal.” While baby Carson wasn’t physically with his family for their wedding day, he was definitely in everyone’s hearts and minds.
