Liz and Tyler were married back at the end of August, and while the weather was gloomy and rainy, it did not put a stop to them enjoying every single bit of their day.
Marrrrrrried!!When I first met with Liz about her wedding, she described the feel she was going for as “elegant glamour.” The girls were just stunning! And the guys…well, they were guys. 😉 Liz, you are breathtakingly gorgeous. (Sidenote: Liz’s dress has a slight rose color to it. It was perfection.)Tyler, killing it at the whole James Bond thing.
Congrats again, you two!! Blessings!!

Favorite memory from their day:
Liz: Going out on the golf course with my new husband for pictures. It was just the two of us (with the photographers). Everything seemed so calm & quiet with the misty rain. It was so peaceful to have that moment before the reception started.
Tyler: Watching my bride walk down the aisle & seeing the dance floor packed all night long!
What they would have done differently:
Liz: If I could have controlled the weather–I would have arranged for some more sunshine. Other than that, absolutely nothing. Everything that happened is what made it our wedding. I would never want to change that.
Best piece of advice for brides and grooms:
Liz: Enjoy the planning process. I loved how much time I spent with my mom, sister, and bridesmaids before the wedding. Those are moments and memories I will never forget. It was a very hectic and stressful time in my life, but they were there to keep me sane. Also, take a moment during all the craziness and think about every person surrounding you through the planning and actual wedding day. Those people are there simply because they love you and support you, how wonderful is that?
Tyler: Don’t try to be cheap with the wedding. If there’s something you want, get it! It only happens once.
Where they honeymooned:
We stayed at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was perfect!
So many people told us to make sure we really took in everything that was happening that day, which is hard to do! On several occasions, we stopped and looked around. The dance floor was one of our most favorite moments to watch. Our dance floor was bursting with so many friends and family members laughing, singing and dancing their hearts out! All the tears and stress leading up to the wedding day were worth it. It meant so much to see everyone we love enjoying themselves! We are so thankful for everyone who showed up and made it as perfect as it was. We still can’t stop smiling when we think of our most amazing day!
