Y'ALL. She is so gorgeous inside and out!

To compliment her gorgeous gown, Tara turned to her mother in law, Cheri, to take care of the flowers! The white hydrangeas and roses were perfect! And guess what? All of the floral arrangements were made of faux flowers!

Tara married her hubby Kyle on New Year's Eve at Aberdeen Manor.

Before saying "I Do", Kyle was able to get a sneak peek of his beautiful bride.

Alyssa Grace Photography was there to capture their snowy first look.

Ok so you know they have to be freezing but they're doing a really good job of not showing it!

How gorgeous is that snow-filled backdrop??

Finally, it was time for the ceremony. Tara and Kyle were married in the chapel at Aberdeen and it was picture perfect!

Our favorite part? The sparklers as they left the chapel!

After the ceremony, guests headed across the parking lot to the reception hall where they were greeted with a perfect New Year's party!

Sequin tablecloths? Check! Sparklers on the cake? Check! Balloon drop at midnight? CHECK!

Seriously, how fun is that?!

We've seen their amazing wedding, let's get to know the couple!

"Kyle and I met 14 years ago while working our summer jobs at Johnson Strawberry Farm in Hobart, IN. I was a cashier and Kyle worked around the farm. We developed a friendship and stayed in touch for 9 years until we started dating 5 years ago (on valentine's Day 2013- we made it official)."

Kyle popped the question during a tropical getaway.

"He proposed to me during a romantic dinner on the beach on July 25th, 2015 in Punta Cana. We were staying at the Dreams Palm Beach resort. There was a storm coming and despite my pleas to move the dinner inside, we waited out the storm and ended our dinner with an engagement. It was a complete surprise!"

When they got home, it was time to start planning her wedding! Tara enjoyed it, but not everything about the planning process was fun...

"My favorite part of wedding planning was buying my wedding dress from Something Blue and Cake Tasting at Designer Desserts! These were fun moments that made me so excited for our wedding day! My least favorite part was collecting RSVP's!"

The big day had arrived! What was the most memorable part for the bride?

"My favorite moment of the wedding was when Kyle and I said our vows and exchanged rings. The feeling of putting his ring on, was a moment I will never forget. I even teared-up because it felt so special."

Currently planning your own wedding? Tara has some great parting advice!

"Use help from family and friends! Don't feel like you need to do everything by yourself.

Also do a "first look" for pictures. It was such a special moment to stand near each other but not be able to see each other until that magic moment. It also makes it less stressful for pictures afterwards."

Congratulations, Tara and Kyle!! We are so happy for you and can't thank you enough for sharing your gorgeous wedding with us!!
