I’m just so very excited to share this very special wedding day! Tyler and Tyler (otherwise known as Girl Tyler and Boy Tyler) have braved the COVID wedding season like champs. First, their wedding was postponed from May to August. Then three weeks before their wedding, the venue closed. Girl Tyler’s grandparents came to the rescue and the wedding day was moved to their house. Tyler and Tyler were able to host a dreamy Potomac River Wedding right on the waterfront! Truly they turned lemons into lemonade.
Even though this wasn’t the original plan, even their wedding day palette coordinated with a seaside Virginia wedding perfectly!
Tyler was a lovely bride and as she prepared for the Big Day, the weather became sunnier and sunnier despite a rainy week! She gifted her bridesmaids with these lovely robes, which perfectly coordinated with her wedding day palette.
And that Hayley Paige dress!
Tyler revealed her bridal look to her bridesmaids and ww! What a reaction!
Tyler was simply lovely with the river as her backdrop!
And her crew couldn’t be lovelier!
Boy Tyler also enjoyed a time of prepping for the Big Day!
And even his fur baby joined the fun with all the guys!!!
When it was time for their first look, Boy Tyler was tearing up before Girl Tyler even came around the corner!
It was a sweet and tearful moment followed by some stunning riverside portraits together!
We also took some in the shade of the willow trees nearby as it was starting to get HOT!
Tyler also shared a first look with her dad as well as family portraits.
Soon it was time for their ceremony! This Virginia wedding photographer LOVES a waterfront wedding and I can’t think of a better view for a Potomac River Wedding Day than this!
Boy Tyler could hardly contain himself as Girl Tyler came down the steps of her grandparents’ house. He was eagerly awaiting his bride!
And what a gorgeous and genuine ceremony it was!
After the two said “I Do,” cocktail hour began as did some family portraits, a time to cool off and a special way for couples to find their escort cards and their champaign glasses!
The reception was under a riverfront tent and the decor was filled with blue and blush details as well as hand sanitizer favors for the guests encouraging them to “spread love not germs.”
And Tyler and Tyler had the most lovely sweetheart table as well!
Tyler and Tyler and their bridal party made their grand entrances and the two danced for the first time as husband and wife.
It was golden hour and time for more portraits together. And we had the beach to accommodate us.
Sunset on the dock was more than dreamy! And the bridal party celebrated too!
Then we had another great surprise…a boat to ride them off into the sunset and greet the start of the evening.
We took advantage of all the sunset had to offer on this perfect day!
Then the rest of the reception began with fun, laughter, food and an adoring crowd. The toasts revealed how much fun these tow are and how much their family and friends love them. Tyler’s sister could barely make it through her toast, retelling how much she admires and looks up to her big sis! It was definitely one of the many teary eyed moments of the day!
And check out this dessert bar!!!
Before it was time for me to depart, the two Tylers shared special parent dances…another tear inducing time!
And finally…cutting the beautiful cake!
It was truly an incredible day and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be photographing a wedding day with two very special people!!! To read their high school sweetheart love story, be sure to check out their engagement session blog post HERE. Keep scrolling to see many more highlights from the day!
And thank you to these incredible wedding professionals who helped to make their day so very special!
