For these two college friends turned lifelong loves, a day surrounded by the beauty and romance of Bull Valley Golf Club sounded about as perfect as could be. And it was made even more so by a layer of peonies and other pink pretties by Twisted Stem and a day captured so beautifully by Jacqui Cole Photography. Check out the full gallery for even more!
From Jacqui Cole Photography… Lauren and Tyler really created their wedding day around their own personalities. The entire day was full of emotion! From their first look, the moments before walking down the aisle to the small glances they stole at each other during speeches. Every moment was such a joy to capture! Lauren and Tyler have this visible connection where they always seems to be on the same wavelength, just knowing what the other is thinking . They are two of the sweetest, down to earth and goofy people I know! It was so amazing to be able to document the start of their lives together and so incredibly happy that these two wonderful people are now husband and wife!
From The Bride…Tyler and I met in high school (but we weren’t high school sweethearts!). His group of friends and my girlfriends all became friends. While we never had any interest in each other at that time, our group of mutual friends allowed us to stay in touch into college. I was throwing a party at the end of sophomore year at my apartment when our friend, Tony, asked if he could bring Tyler. I said yes and, well – the rest is history! We were inseparable.
How we picked Bull Valley is a funny story. When we talked about getting married, neither of us ever thought we would do the “traditional big wedding.” We always imagined a destination wedding with a small group of family and friends – or even going to the courthouse. However, I grew up just a few miles from Bull Valley Golf Club and my dad (a huge golfer) had always loved it so we decided to take a look. The result? We were blown away. Everything about Bull Valley is absolutely breathtaking. They were in the process of completely revamping the outdoor patio and we knew it would be absolutely wonderful. We didn’t look anywhere else and booked it on the spot!
Choosing our colors was easy (pink/black/silver). It was a spring wedding and I love pink! There are so many ways to make it tasteful for a formal event. Tyler wasn’t thrilled at first, so we ended up using pink more as an accent rather than a main color to keep it boy-friendly (flowers, ties, etc). My favorite part of the day has to be the first look photo session. Having that moment alone before the ceremony for me and Tyler to see each other was incredible. I think he would agree. We could both react naturally and have no distractions from a crowd. Not to mention it made for some stellar photos! He looked so dapper!
