Tyler and I lived in Carriage Cove, BYU student housing, and were members of the same ward and FHE group; what better place to look? Well, naturally, we became friends and I spent a lot of time at his apartment…We were playing soccer on the same BYU intramural team and had a ton in common, but I was over there so much mainly because I had started dating his roommate… Fortunately, that didn’t work out and Tyler was there to pick up my broken heart After I finally made the right choice in roommates, Tyler and I quickly fell in love and became engaged at a Family Reunion in Park City.
My favorite parts of the wedding day: It’s hard to choose just one but I think the best moment EVER was when Tyler and I were finally married, standing together with our family and friends. It was such a wonderful feeling of love and excitement and I could not believe that I was lucky enough to have this man as mine for forever. That’s a feeling that hasn’t gone away. My other favorite parts were 1. having soo much family around! Most of my relatives live far away (my immediate family is in GA, where I’m from!) so it was a real treat to see so many of them gathering together to celebrate our wedding. And not to mention our great friends that came out to support us as well!
2. My younger brother Ethan’s rap. He has a special talent for lyrics and rapping and he really stole the show with his rap.
3. The food! My cousin was/ is a professional chef and the food was delicious! We had a soup/salad bar and it was exquisite!
4. My final favorite part was at the end of the day, leaving the reception, driving off with my man and never having to be separate from him again!
Another aspect of my reception in Georgia that I loved is that we shared it with my brother. My older brother and I got married very close together and had the great idea of a joint reception in Georgia! This was a blast because he and I are close and also because he married one of my friends/previous roommate! She also wore a dress from Allyse’s Bridal!!
The BEST part of all of this was that I get to remember every detail and every moment because of the fabulous work of our photographer: Rebecca Loren Photography. I honestly am astounded every time I look at the photographs she took. LOVE THEM ALL! She truly caught the magic of my special day and I will treasure them forever.
