Brittany + Tyler are both in the Air Force and chose to have an outdoor wedding at the beautiful Hidden River Events, the perfect venue for this special day. Without a doubt, they are some of the sweetest and most lovely people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Their outdoor wedding was seriously FUN—in all caps!
A DIFFERENT TAKE ON GETTING READY PHOTOS
The guys all wore their traditional USAF dress uniforms, with an awesome surprise underneath called “Party Sleeves” or “Party Shirt.” This is a USAF tradition, where the groom and each groomsman get to design their own unique and super fun shirt which goes under the dress jacket. In all the photographs from the ceremony, all of the shirts look “normal,” just a white dress shirt with the coat on. As soon as the coat comes off, the colorful and personal details of each shirt are out for the world to see. All in all, these guys were such a blast! Tyler, the groom, made the back of his Party Shirt out of a picture of his bride, which was awesome. Not to mention how excited Brittany was to discover she was on his shirt.
A LOVING FIRST LOOK WITH THE BRIDE’S PARENTS
Brittany is extremely close to her parents, and the First Look with her dad was so emotional. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. As shown above, you can feel the amount of love they have for each other in every photo from this sweet moment.
Throughout the day Brittany + Tyler’s great sense of humor and tremendous love for each other stole the show. A little inside joke between the two of them: Tyler has a cleft in his chin, which they love to have fun with. Brittany puts her nose, which fits perfectly, into his cleft and cracks each other up. In other words, they were made for each other.
OUTDOOR WEDDING RECEPTION
The weather was gorgeous all day long, what a perfect day for an outdoor wedding. Afterward, family and friends danced all night long to the best tunes at the reception. The evening was concluded by a super fun sparkler exit, with Brittany + Tyler showing us their best Air Force airplane wings.
KIND WORDS FROM BRITTANY + TYLER
I could go on and on about Erica and how amazing she was during the planning process and on our actual wedding day. She was such a delight, and a beautiful soul to work with. She formulated our whole timeline for the day of and ensured that everyone was on track. Erica knew the day of that I wanted to float along and enjoy every minute without having to worry about the timeline or little things, and she made sure that happened.
Erica got to know us and what moments were most important to capture for us. My husband and I really wanted to live in the moment that day, and Erica shot our photos perfectly to capture all of the love and fellowship with us and our friends and family. I also hadn’t really ever worked with a photographer before, but by the time the wedding rolled around I felt like I was working with a member of my family; it was just so comfortable…which made for the most AMAZING photo gallery. If I had to hire a wedding photographer again, I would hire Erica 100 times!
