At Tara’s bridal shower, one table number sign read: "Elegance is the only beauty that never fades." And beauty there was — everything from the cookies (modeled after shoes, wedding gowns and handbags) to the bride herself (outfitted with a pearl bracelet and necklace, Chanel makeup, Viktor & Rolf "Flowerbomb" perfume), was fashion-forward.
A self-professed Type A personality, Tara collaborated with her event planner, Matthew Abraham, and mom, Sylvia, to throw a party based on her lifelong love of style. "Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved clothes and accessories, and this has transferred into my adult life, as well. Fashion is what makes us unique or different, and I believe that fashion designers allow women to do just that," said Tara.
The end of her shower was especially meaningful: "There were so many memorable moments that happened all throughout the day, but my favorite one was when my future husband Steve walked through the door, carrying a bouquet for myself, the moms, and Grandma. He also brought a single flower for each lady there!"
