How did you meet your partner?
We met through mutual friends in the summer of 2015. Unfortunately neither one of us quite remember the exact circumstances, but we’re pretty sure it was over a couple of beers at our local Comic convention. I ended up leaving a few paintings in his car that I had bought there, and was secretly happy when we had to meet up later so that he could return them to me. Since that day we have spent every waking moment with each other.
What is your favorite thing about your partner?
Kristie: My favorite thing about Tyler is his outstanding moral fiber; he’s the kindest, most generous person I’ve ever met, and it’s absolutely the reason I fell in love. I have the utmost respect for him.
Tyler: My favorite thing about Kristie is how she always seeks to improve in all facets of her life. She drives me to be a better person. Through our determination and perseverance, we have built an incredible life together.
What was the proposal like?
Kristie: Our proposal was incredible. We shared a private dinner on the beach in Cancun of February 2021. We were both so incredibly grateful to be able to travel again amidst the pandemic, and Tyler had been waiting for the perfect moment to pop the question.
Tyler: I would have been an idiot to let that moment slip away. Against the backdrop of the ocean, just the two of us, it was the perfect set of circumstances to ask her to be mine forever.
Why did you decide to have a destination wedding?
We decided that having a destination wedding would be the best option for our loved ones since we had people traveling from four different countries to join us. We would much rather spend an entire vacation hanging out and making memories with our friends than one single chaotic day at home. Most people don’t even remember their wedding day because of how crazy it is!
What was your favorite part of wedding planning?
Having the friendly team at Breathless to ensure that we didn’t overlook any details. There can be a lot to remember, so it was incredibly comforting knowing that we weren’t forgetting anything and that the logistics of our special day were in good hands.
What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
There were many memorable moments, but I’d have to say our first dance/Lightsaber duel really stole the show. But the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we rocked the reception.
What was your experience like working with your Adventure Photos photographer/videographer?
Alex and his team at adventure photos were absolutely incredible, really top notch! They went above and beyond in every way and made our special day more memorable than we ever could have hoped for. We made special requests for smoke bombs and our first dance, and our photos and video really stand out. It was the best day of our lives and we are incredibly grateful for the way the captured every special moment.
What was your favorite wedding photograph and why?
They are all so perfect! If I had to choose just one, it would either be the one of us laughing on the beach, or the shot of our entire wedding group at the gazebo. So many loved ones in that photo.
If you could give advice to newly engaged couples, what would it be?
Have a destination wedding! The day passes by quickly and you will be stressed, so it is extremely beneficial to have a team of professionals that you can rely on make sure things go smoothly. A vacation spent with your loved ones can be a once in a lifetime opportunity, so make it memorable for everyone!
