When Tyler joined the local softball team, he had no idea that his life would change forever as a result. A certain girl caught his eye - she was strong and fun and had a certain spark. Just a few weeks after meeting Natalie, Tyler was put on the spot. "What's so special about her?" his friend asked. Tyler responded confidently, "I don't know, but I'm going to marry that girl."
And so he did. On October 3, 2012, Tyler and Natalie exchanged vows in a small civil ceremony. Now, over 2 1/2 years later, the couple is as much in love as ever. Natalie had dreamed of a big wedding, surrounded by friends and family, and so the two decided it was never too late to celebrate in style. A date was chosen, invitations were sent, and Natalie started planning every tiny detail of what would be a magical day.
On June 13, 2015, Natalie & Tyler stood in front of St. Bonaventure's Catholic Church and repeated their vows. A large wedding party decked in black and hot pink surrounded them, offering their support and showing just how much the couple is loved. All of them know that Natalie and Tyler's time together during their first year of marriage will be limited. Natalie is as army wife. Her husband ships out for the National Guard two weeks after their wedding, this coming Tuesday.
It was such an honor to be a part of this couple's day. Natalie and Tyler, you made us feel like we were part of your family, right from the start, and your wedding party was great fun to work with. We thank you for letting us be part of such a special day - and for sacrificing for our country. We hope you will treasure your photos.
