Wedding Wednesday: The Tackett Wedding

Mary and Jared Tackett | August 11, 2012 | Photography by Tara Lilly Design & Photography

Mary Johnson and Jared Tackett met while studying for their Masters degrees at Virgina Tech and after graduation came and went the couple maintained a three year long-distance relationship. On Jared's surprise trip he gave Mary a box filled with the Post-it notes she had left him after her visits to him. Once she opened the smaller heart box at the bottom of the larger box he asked her to marry him. The couple held a charming country wedding as mason jars with candles hung from the trees and an antique claw tub was filled with beverages.
