As Tyler turned around to see his beautiful bride standing before him at their first look, they sweetly stood there, soaking in all the love and support that brought the day was to bring to them.
And let me tell you, Danielle and Tyler’s wedding day was filled to the brim with unconditional love and support. Danielle’s sister stood by her side all day. Tyler’s sister was the officiant while his other sister did a beautiful reading. The centerpieces were hand-cut by a family friend while the bride’s father made the table numbers that went into a slit in the wooden base.
The bride and her family hand selected the wedding floral and it was undoubtedly stunning. The bouquets were then hand put together at home prior to the wedding day. For the bride’s bouquet flowers included peonies and dahlias with greenery including eucalyptus while the bridesmaids’ flowers were similar to the addition of roses. Small flower arrangements were made with the leftover flowers and were spread throughout the reception area while boutonnieres and corsages were made by the groom’s mother and sisters. Additionally, the ceremony was decorated with dahlias and cherry blossom branches. Looking at the bride’s bouquet alone you would have never known it was DIY’d!
Danielle and Tyler – thank you for letting me be a part of such a special day. Your day was so beautiful and it is an honor to share your memories with the world!

“When I went dress shopping, I had a short list of must-haves. I was looking for a simple, open back with detail, and straps. My dress went above and beyond what I had in mind. It was perfect! It was an ivory, A-line dress with lace on the top in addition to the straps. My favorite was the open back with the lace detail. For the shoes, I went with comfortable. I wore Toms, Jutti D’Orsay Flats.” – Danielle, The Bride
