Now for a little Q & A:
When and how did you two meet?
We met in the Spring of 2015 via the dating website OkCupid. I sent the first message to Tyler, we connected quickly and went on our first date in May 2015.
What is your favorite thing about each other?
Tyler: My favorite thing about Desiree is how caring and supportive she is. Desiree: My favorite thing about Tyler is his how passionate he is and his sense of humor. He has me laughing everyday!
How did he propose?
In the mountains on a walk with our dog, Riley, he surprised us both!
How did you choose your venue for your day?
We started researching online and then set up some tours. Lionsgate was the first venue we saw and Tyler from there said, “Anywhere else is going to have a hard sell after this”. It was perfect, close to our house, which meant less of a commute for anyone coming out of town, offered gorgeous indoor options and finally they offered an inclusive package with linens and decorations provided – this was a dream come true, we didn’t want to have a bunch of table cloths and decorations we would never use again.
What was the inspiration behind your wedding day?
A union of souls and a merging of families. For the decor and overall vibes we went with a rustic bohemian feel.
What is one thing you wish you had done for your wedding day?
We wish we could have had a longer event, more time with all of our friends and loved ones would have been amazing.
What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?
The first look – the hours leading up to the actual event were stressful and we hadn’t seen each other since early in the morning. We both felt instant relief and joy when we saw each other and had that valuable us time…plus hanging out with our awesome photographer Kari!
Any advice for future couples about planning for their wedding?
Plan as early as you can and remember somethings are bound to go wrong so roll with the punches as they come!
