A casual connection through mutual friends eventually blossomed into lasting love for this sweet couple and we are tickled to share their lovely real wedding with you! As acquaintances with common friends back in their high school days, Kalyn and Tyler’s paths crossed long before they would fall head over heels, proving that timing is everything. As luck would have it, they ended up hitting if off once they both found themselves single and available. Years later, Tyler’s plan for a romantic sunset proposal on the beaches of Mexico on New Year’s Eve would hit a bump in the road. After a long day soaking in the rays at the pool, Kalyn suggested they push back their dinner reservation so that they could rest up, not knowing that would put a kink in Tyler’s proposal plans. No worries as Tyler navigated the hiccup like a pro and still ended up pulling off his sunset proposal, now taking place on their private balcony instead of the beach as planned. It was a complete success with Kalyn saying “YES!” and the two of them went to dinner that evening celebrating more than just NYE.
When it got down to wedding planning, the most important priorities for this couple were the photography and florals. Kalyn shares “The wedding photos are something that you cherish and look at for years to come and the flowers add so much detail and beauty to the pictures and the overall “look” of your wedding. Our photos and flowers turned out PERFECT!” Indeed they did, with the skilled assistance of stellar vendors like Voilà! Blooms & Decor in Dundee to provide amazing floral design and Ben Ramos Photography to capture all the loveliness. With a style described as contemporary elegance, a favorite wedding-day memory for Kalyn was when the couple was officially announced as Mr. & Mrs. at the end of their courtyard ceremony surrounded by all of their family and friends. Some parting wisdom from this couple: don’t delay your planning! “Start planning as soon as possible. The big things like the venue, photographer and the florist would be the 3 things I would be looking into booking ASAP,” notes Kalyn, adding that you should definitely do your research on vendors before jumping into booking anyone. Solid advice!
