Tyler Arboretum was the perfect backdrop for Jessica and Matthew’s fall wedding this past September. Associate photographer Angela and second shooter Inna captured their magical day so beautifully. Tyler Arboretum is filled with hundreds of acres of giant trees, butterfly gardens, and wildflowers. Because of this, there is so much variety for awesome photos. The beautiful buildings have a natural charm and a rustic vibe to them.
For their first look, Jessica and Matt decided to write letters to each other. They stood back-to-back and read their letters to each other aloud before turning around to see each other for the very first time. It was so emotional and special and obviously there were lots of happy tears. After their first look, they had a sweet outdoor ceremony, and then it was time to party!
Cocktail hour had tons of cute personalized details, and reception decor was stunning with gorgeous wooden farm tables and greenery. Family and friends toasted the newlyweds with heartfelt speeches, and the maid of honor even performed a rap song! They tore up the dance floor all night, and even had printed out photos of their sweet pup Finn there so he could party too! Finally, they ended the night with soft pretzels! Congrats again to Jessica and Matt and great job Angela and Inna in capturing this perfect day!
