You know those brides who choose the best version of everything? They have the best taste in colors, style, and overall wedding-ness? That’s Tara Skinner. Well, now she is officially Mrs. Tara Carlson.  <3

Tara and Brayden got married on June 6, 2015 at McCrory Gardens in Brookings, SD. They chose one of the most beautiful venues in the area with the most classic colors: navy blue, blush pink, and accents of gold and lace. Hitch Design Studio designed everything for her wedding, including:

That’s just about every service you can get from Hitch. And we are so grateful to Tara! We even have the pleasure of helping her with a sister-in-law’s bridal shower decorations!

June 6 was a rainy/sunny/beautiful/rainbow-filled day. We set up the chairs for her wedding between rain sprinkles (another reason to hire Hitch– we roll up our sleeves and do anything for brides!). We set up the custom-built altar with fabric and flower bouquets and made sure their cord ceremony was seamless on a table beside the outdoor altar. The programs were fans — appropriate for the outdoor wedding. After the wedding, the new Mr. & Mrs. Tara & Brayden Carlson walked through the gated area toward the McCrory Gardens reception hall and were greeted with guests blowing bubbles in the garden! So sweet.

Both families were so wonderful to work with and Tara was so organized. We would do anything for our couples on their wedding day (including pack up patio decorations in the pouring rain, just to be reward with a wedding day rainbow).

Inside, the reception hall we decorated was perfect for her. Take a look at everything from her wedding day!
