Tyler & Hope | A Late December Wedding at The Edgewater in Madison, Wisconsin

In their wedding questionnaire Hope wrote this little blurb about how they met. I thought it was too sentimental and sweet to not put on the internet for forever.

Tyler and I have known each other for over 20 years. We met originally when him and my brother played Little League baseball together. Fast forward a few years, and his sister, Malari, and I became close friends. We always had a joke in high school about how each of us would date the other’s brother (and not be mad about it). We ended up actually getting together after playing on a sand volleyball team together one summer. We had so much fun together that summer that we figured we should actually give it a go!

They celebrated their wedding this past weekend at The Edgewater here in Madison. Right on the lake that was freshly covered in snow, these two promised their forevers. It was romantic, intimate, cozy, and pretty dang beautiful. I’m SO thrilled to be sharing their day with you all today. Sending 2018 out with a bang and there is no two people I would have wanted to spend it with.
