With a tap on the shoulder, Tyler turned around to see his stunning bride, in a ballgown with a long veil stretched a foot or two behind her. Isabella’s hair all done up in the perfect bun, Tyler couldn’t keep his eyes off her as his arms stretched wide to embrace his girl. After a few minutes of alone time for their first look, it was time to head off to the ceremony.
Pulling up to the White Rose Barn, Ashley and I were already so excited for this wedding day. The venue was a dream, but I & T’s love story was even dreamier. Watching childhood neighbors become husband and wife calls for a little extra celebration!
Each detail of Isabella’s day reflected her kind, gentle personality. Soft blue hues were everywhere, met with fun pinks and deep burgundies to create a look totally unique. Her bridal suite was filled with the laughter of her family and closest friends, each celebrating the morning. Meanwhile, Tyler’s groomsmen were also enjoying the morning and putting on their jackets for the wedding day.
Once the first look and portraits were complete, it was time for the ceremony. The bridal party made their way down the aisle to a huge wooden archway covered with ivy that reminded me of European vineyards. The flower girls walked down as well – the littlest one escorted on a decorated remote control car. Isabella’s arm around her father’s, they walked down the aisle to meet Tyler grinning from ear to ear. The officiant spoke about the precious love of these two, and to symbolize their lives becoming one, they made a painting during their ceremony. Each with a different color, they poured the paint down the canvas and watched as the colors blended together to make a piece all their own. Sealed with a kiss, I & T were officially man and wife!!
Time to Celebrate
The reception was fantastic, creating the most beautiful experience for the guests. The DJ’s cloud machine truly made their first dances look like a fantasy film, and the cotton candy pop up was a huge hit!! When the dance floor opened up, almost everyone in attendance went out and had a great time, smiles on everyone’s faces. The newlyweds ended their night running through a sparkler send-off as their guests cheered them on. It could not have been a more perfect day!
To the Couple:
Isabella and Tyler, I am so excited for your new lives as a married couple! You make everyone feel so welcome and loved, and I’m so glad you had the day of your dreams. Editing through each photo, I could feel the love you two share, and it was such an honor to be able to celebrate with you! Congratulations on your new marriage and officially being Mr. & Mrs. Wittman!! I can’t wait to keep watching your story unfold!
