Kayla + Tyler : Ocean Isle Beach, NC
On a warm summer day in July, Kayla and Tyler traveled from their home in Pennsylvania to get married by the sea in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. An intimate group of family and friends gathered together to witness their exchange of vows and celebrate this new chapter of their lives. We were so happy we could join them to film their incredibly sweet day!
The bridal party started the day at The Islander Inn for their pre-ceremony preparations. One of the first things we noticed about this group was how laid back and easy going everyone was. You could just tell that they all enjoy a very close relationship and special connection with Kayla and Tyler. Later on during the toasts, the maid of honor and best man described Kayla and Tyler as caring friends and role models who built their relationship around being the best of friends… what a strong and inspiring foundation for their union!
After prep was complete, everyone made their way over to The Isles Restaurant & Tiki Bar, where the ceremony was to be held right outside on the beach. But before walking down the aisle, Kayla and Tyler stole away for a moment to hold hands and exchange letters without seeing one another. Then, Kayla surprised Tyler with a “box of feels.” As Kayla described to us earlier in the day… during their engagement, Kayla would joke that if Tyler didn’t cry when she walked down the aisle, then she would turn around and try it again until he did. Tyler would then joke that since he doesn’t have emotions he wouldn’t cry, but if she found him wandering around on the beach, then to know that he was just trying to find his feels. So to help him out, Kayla brought him a little box of paper hearts so he would have his feels on him during the ceremony. And it worked! Tyler indeed found his feels when Kayla came down the aisle - but instead of tears, he was all smiles and no words, except “she is sooo beautiful,” as the pastor delightfully shared with the crowd shortly after the ceremony began!
Throughout the rest of the day, many more sweet memories were shared in front of our cameras, from the excitement of the first kiss, to a bridal party sunset photo rendezvous on the shoreline, to the heartwarming stories told during the toasts, to everyone joining in on the dance floor to party with Kayla and Tyler long into the night. It was so awesome seeing all the love and affection in the room! This couple is truly cherished by their family and friends. They really know how to have a good time and just enjoy being together, and we have no doubt that Kayla and Tyler will have a lot of love to look forward to in their future together.
Kayla and Tyler, the two of you, and your families, were a pleasure to get to know. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful day! You are an amazing couple and we couldn’t be happier for you!
