Taylor Tomasi and Johnathan Hill (known affectionately as Chase) first laid eyes on each other when a mutual friend brought Chase along to a decidedly unglamorous teenage get-together held in Taylor's mother's home in Dallas. "My mom knew after a brief conversation with him that he was the one for me," says Taylor, "but I just brushed her off." She was in eighth grade, after all. But four years later, they began a 13-year love affair that took them from the cozy confines of Dallas to the edgier streets of Brooklyn, New York.
Here, the bride and groom steal a candlelit kiss under the magnolia and oak trees in the garden at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas where the wedding was held; her metallic clutch is by Chanel.
The bride, who is known to shuttle around the city in Superga sneakers, gifted her bridesmaids with a pair tied to each of their chairs, the better to kick off their heels during the reception. As for her, she kept her heels on, despite the sneaks that dangled from her own seat. She saved those for the next morning, a charming reminder of the roaring time they had shared with family and friends the night before.
