You've seen those DIY weddings on Pinterest that don't look DIY. You're convinced there was actually a planner and league of vendors behind the scenes. This wedding is one of those! And no, there was not a planner and league of vendors behind the scenes. Not unless you count the bride and her league of friends... Because they did it all themselves! Everything from the table settings, the dessert table, stair decorations and even hair and makeup was done by the bride and bridesmaids!
Tyler and Desiree have such a sophisticated and elegant vibe about themselves and their wedding perfectly matched that! Their venue itself was a charming Tuscan-inspired vineyard with a pretty little chapel where they were married. The bridesmaids wore black dresses, and there were black and gold decorations in the chapel and reception hall with hot pink accents and sequins throughout. During the reception, the girls put on feather hair pieces which were inspired by Great Gatsby!
The whole day I felt so honored to witness and photograph their wedding. Tyler and Desiree are incredibly genuine and authentic in their relationship and the way they interact with others. They are so strong in who they are and where they're going! It was also so tender to photograph Desiree and her dad sharing a special prayer together before the ceremony, and then see the sweet emotions when he walked her down the aisle to give her away. Tyler is an incredible man to receive such a spectacular woman as Desiree!
Tyler and Desiree, you are each so deserving of such a wonderful person to marry and I hope your love and your marriage only become sweeter with time!
