I always love the first look, but this one was particularly special because these two decided to save their vows for just the two of them (+ me, the fly on the wall) before the ceremony. As Tyler and I were waiting for his bride, he was telling me just how absolutely blown away he was by the fact that he got to marry this amazing, beautiful woman. The moment arrived when she walked down the path and tapped his shoulder, and Tyler was just awestruck by how stunning she was. In that moment to themselves, they read their vows to each other and it was full of tears and laughter - tears that certainly didn't end there. Tyler had told me that he wasn't sure if he was going to cry, but the moment hit him when he was waiting for his bride to walk down the aisle - before she even arrived - he started to tear up. Those are the moments that are so precious to capture. From all the words said by their friends and family, it was obvious that these two, as opposite as they were, had fought hard for their relationship. And like a true Disney fairytale where they had first met, they knew it was a love story worth fighting for and ran off into the sunset as newlyweds.
