Driving through the glory of Minnesota country, I knew this Waltham wedding would surprise me either with dark clouds or glorious sunshine. Every storm was just miles to the side of my drive– but the rain did not fall on us all day! If I had to put a slogan to Tya & Devan’s wedding, it would be this: “Experience the power of family coming together to make a gorgeous day even more spectacular!” Making any wedding vision come to fruition is an act of love. Opening your own home as a reception venue shows another level of commitment entirely!
Family & Friends
I commend the labors of friends and family whose work made such a stunning country wedding dream come true. The beauty I saw in Waltham extends past its meadows and tree groves into the very people who actualized this wedding vision. Rain the previous night had flooded the original wedding ceremony site –guess whose land became the new ceremony venue? Tya’s brother. Whose hands placed the tree trunks and planks (after the ceremony had to be moved down the road)? Friends and family. Who crafted and designed the bouquets? The bridesmaids. Who rolled out the bridal carpet? Friends. Who arranged the delicious dessert donuts? Family and friends. The list goes on and on, and the love behind Tya & Devan’s day shows through in every picture.
Waltham Wedding Beauty
Tya & Devan’s vows demonstrated such passion. The trust in Tya’s eyes as she witness his declaration found their anchor is Devan’s. The words hard to speak were placed with grace and gratitude. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of hearing a human voice use its full range of emotion– and to see it live, not in a movie.
Tya & Devan,
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture the first day of your lives as husband and wife. Your Waltham wedding was so stunning and I hope all your dreams came true in planning it. I bless you to walk out the vows you spoke to each other and to never forget that you were made to delight in each other! I’m so glad that your sweet dog Demi got to be a part of it all.
