Olivia and Tyler’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. Willow trees and a pond welcomed us as we pulled down the long gravel drive leading to the venue. The sunshine was bright and the sky was blue. It was the perfect day for a northern Indiana wedding!
Olivia and Tyler got ready in adjacent rooms at The Back 40 Banquet Hall while friends and family set up for the wedding. The building sits back in the woods and stray cats sit on the gravel path outside the building, soaking in the sunshine. A small waterfall bubbles and bumblebees buzz near the various planters that are full of flowers. Before Olivia put on her stunning Madeline Gardner dress, she shared some fun moments with her best friends. Meanwhile, Tyler and his groomsmen got ready, each one of them rocking a pair of superhero cufflinks.
Before long, it was time for Olivia and Tyler’s first look and you guys, I have to be honest.. it was one of my favorite parts of the day. Olivia and Tyler were able to sneak away and spend a few moments together – under the branches of the most stunning willow tree. Talk about romantic! (If you aren’t sure if you should have a first look, check out this blog about why I love them) They exchanged letters before turning to see one another and it was a beautiful, quiet moment.
Following their first look and some portraits it was time for the ceremony! Olivia and Tyler exchanged vows under a stunning arch made by Olivia’s sweet mom. The wind blew gently and friends and family looked on with excitement. Finally, Olivia and Tyler were pronounced husband and wife!
It was an incredible day and I am so thankful that Olivia and Tyler let the AMP team celebrate with them! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hoover!
