I walked down a gravel driveway with the most perfect summer breeze blowing. Crystal blue skies and a spring green quickly fading into that summer richness. Meryl & Tyler were married on family friends’ property. If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know that private estate weddings are my absolute FAVORITES. The white tent, the intimate vibe of it, the uniqueness it gives knowing that you may be the only person married on those grounds. It fosters an extra special feel to a wedding day and one that Meryl & Tyler basked in.
Celebrating these two is something that I knew from the very first few emails exchanged was going to be special. Typically during the wedding planning process the bride is the only person I talk to (totally normal. Totally okay) but I quickly realized that Tyler was included in every email. His name posted right next to Meryl’s in my inbox and honestly, I loved it. Having a groom a part of the planning process made me even more excited for their big day.. & boy, it didn’t disappoint.
