Spring Backyard Wedding, NJ | Taryn & Spencer


Their Wedding Day: Private Residence, NJ

Taryn and Spencer’s spring backyard wedding day in central New Jersey was such a laidback, chill, unique wedding day! With a love for festivals, music, and craft beer, these two brought together all their loved ones and through a backyard rager all night long. Truly, it was so much fun and just so true to them – they love each other, their kiddos, and all their friends and family. They celebrated, danced, and had a wild bonfire at the end of the night!

From tearjerker moments in the morning to a wild bride entrance on a tractor to partying all night on the dance floor, this day allowed for so many real moments to unfold. It was so special getting to capture this day so candidly. The adorable kids running around everywhere definitely help with that! 🙂 Keep scrolling for the sweetest moments from their big day!

Their Love Story

Taryn and Spencer met when they were around 13-14 years old and went to the same high school together! Spencer was close friends with Taryn’s brother, so Taryn and Spencer got close over the years. They went their separate ways during college and continued to grow individually!

She says, “Never ever would I have thought in a MILLION YEARS we would be dating, getting married AND have a baby!” Through every up and down they’ve been through, they’ve realized that they’re so much better when they are together than apart.

Taryn told me, “Spencer is one of the best guys anyone could ever know. I’m not just saying this because I’m biased, he really is! He defines the phrase, “he will take his shirt off his back for you” I probably don’t even deserve him! He’s so laid-back and calming, free-spirited and hippie-like, whereas I’m so worried all the time and anxious! I’m SOOO emotional so prepare for tears! He keeps me sane, he is my gravity! We also have a lot in common hobby-wise, which helps us stay busy all the time. We both love to be in nature and always doing something physical like hiking, canoeing, or even laborious work!”

Taryn & Spencer,

It means the world that you chose me to capture your love story from your engagement session/pregnancy announcement to your spring backyard wedding! You’re such a fun couple who keeps it real and knows who you are, and I absolutely adore that about you two! I loved every second of your party-focused wedding day, and I’m so happy for your amazing family! Congratulations!! xo
