1. Recently, I drove to Dalton, GA(a beautiful little city, by the way) to photograph the wedding of Loni Beth and Tyler. Oh, what an adorable, precious couple they are. Sigh… She was the happiest of brides. Seriously, her smile was HUMONGOUS all day long. Her joyful spirit is so contagious and it was wonderful to work with her. Tyler is charming and funny. I loved his smile and friendly nature. They are perfect for one another! All the bridesmaids and groomsman were great, too! Right before the ceremony, LB and her girls got together for a chain prayer and it was so moving. What a great way to start your marriage!
2. How they fell in love… in LB’s words…
“I first saw Tyler during volleyball practice. He was walking through the gym with the basketball team. HE HAD A MOHAWK. If anyone knows me, I HATE Mohawks. Tyler was acting silly walking through and one of my teammates walked over to me and said, “LB, that kid would be perfect for you.” I looked at her and laughed! A few months later it was time for the Berry vs. Shorter game! So, the Volleyball team painted up and went to the game where basketball had a big time recruit watching them. Needless to say, this recruit wanted to meet me. After the game I got a phone call from a number I didn’t know. It was Tyler and he wanted me to come over to his apartment and meet this kid. After a few minutes of ” No, I am not coming over,” I caved and said I’ll come for 1 hour. After that night, Tyler and I started to hang out a little more with our friends, and then it started to just be us. Tyler asked me on our first date after a basketball game when he was driving me back to my dorm room (the day before Valentine’s day!). I was about to get out of the car and he asked if I wanted to go to dinner and a movie! After the first date, the rest is history. We have dated for almost three years. He is the love of my life and my best friend. I could not have asked for a better man to be placed in my life by God!! He is an answered prayer!”
3. We dealt with a few downpours which kept us confined to indoor shooting areas and porches most of the time. The venue didn’t disappoint, though, with it’s beautiful window light. The ceremony was seriously heart melting. Both their father’s had a role and there were tears in my eyes the whole time. My favorite part was when LB’s dad told her groom, “You aren’t getting a princess, Tyler, you’re getting Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Hahaha!! Thank you so much LB and Tyler for letting me be a part of your special day. I know you guys will be so happy together! 🙂
P.S. If you are interested in booking a wedding with me, I only take a few per year, so call way in advance! 🙂
