Friends, we cannot wait for you to take a peak into this gorgeous wedding! Rachel and Tyler’s day was the picture perfect October wedding and we are obsessed. Prepare to fall in love with this sweet couple on their special day of becoming husband and wife. We are so grateful they have allowed us to share their day with you! Xoxo
Can you give us a glimpse into you & your hubs's love story?
When Tyler and I first met there was no way I ever thought I would date him. I told him from the beginning that I only wanted to be friends, well I guess he took that as a challenge. We hung out all the time and did what best friends do, we liked to go eat (all the time) we stayed up late talking on the phone, went places together, and our friendship grew stronger each passing day. He told me he almost gave up trying to make me his girlfriend but I’m so happy he didn’t because we would both be missing out on our happily ever after.
What was it about your dress that made you realize it was "the one?" Was it what you expected to love/wear? Favorite memory from dress shopping/Twirl?
When I first tried my dress on I was a little skeptical, I had a completely different style in mind but the longer I looked in the mirror the more I fell in love with it and knew it was the one! My favorite memory of dress shopping is my sweet grandmother was there to share the experience. She passed before seeing me walk down the isle so I’ll always cherish that day of her seeing me in my dream dress.
What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?
My favorite part of the wedding is having all our family together. I have four brothers and a sister spread out all over the country along with my nieces and nephews. So getting everyone together is a pretty hard task, I’m so lucky to have a loving and supportive family to be there for our biggest day ever.
What has been the best thing about marriage so far?
The best thing about marriage thus far is simply being together. Learning about one another, to lift and support and be the others rock through it all. Already in two years we have experienced so much, graduating college, new jobs, buying a house. So many milestones that really shape us and help us grow as a couple.
Any pieces of wisdom or advice you'd like to share with future brides, engaged gals, or newlyweds like yourself?
I learned a lot while planning a wedding. Like everything isn’t going to go just as planned, you may plan for sunny skies and instead get some rainy clouds. Try to not sweat the small stuff and know everything will happen just like it’s supposed to. Enjoy the day because it goes by so quickly. I so badly want to relive the day I got married because it was such a magical day, so take my advice and just live in every moment. And if you have rain clouds on your big day I suggest to have a backup Pinterest board with some awesome picture ideas because they’ll turn out beautifully.
