Romantic Fall Mountain Wedding | Maureen & Tyler

April 29, 2019 Real Weddings

From the second we saw Maureen and Tyler’s stunning mountain wedding with romantic details, intentional gifts, and pops of sparkling gold, we were absolutely mesmerized! You can really feel the magic surrounding this couple, their friends and family, and their celebration! The photos from Taylor at Linkes Photography captured the day wonderfully with this comment, “It was so beautiful, and I am so humbled to have met a love as great as Maureen and Tylers.” See it all below with some fun Q&A with the bride!

How did you meet?

“We met on coincidence at Texas A&M when Tyler was out celebrating his friend’s graduation and I was out celebrating my own graduation! Tyler suggested we go out to dinner the following night to celebrate and after shutting down the restaurant while lost in conversation, we became inseparable.”

What is your favorite thing about your husband?

“Tyler captured my heart by being exactly who he is. He constantly inspires me, encourages me, and pushes me to my best self. Because of him, I dare to dream more than I ever have. I’ve fallen in love with him again and again, countless times, without reservation and I still can’t believe that I got to marry my best friend. He is more than the perfect match for me. He will always be the best part of my day!”

How did he pop the question?

“One and a half years of dating and countless wine and pizza dates later, Tyler popped the question on a FREEZING but sunny morning on the Busby Farm. There were icicles hanging down from the cliff by our creek and he had my mom use that as an excuse to go down there and take family pictures. While taking photos, we obviously had to get one of just the two of us and as we were posing for our photo, he got down on one knee and popped my most favorite question.

He proposed with my Granny’s David Yurman ring because my ring hadn’t arrived in the mail yet. He would have waited for my ring to come in the mail but he knew how important family is to me and that my dad had to be there for that special moment. My dad worked overseas in Russia during that time and had to leave the very next day so he borrowed a ring from my Granny for the proposal. It was a most magical day.”

Tell us about your big day!

“Honestly, I’m not even sure where to begin. Our wedding day was an absolute dream and there isn’t one thing Tyler nor I would change. It went so perfectly that it doesn’t seem real and I feel like there had to be a fluke but it was hidden from me, haha. The sunshine was beaming down, the fall foliage was at its prime, and all of our people were in one place — we aren’t sure how it gets any better than that.”

What were some of the most memorable moments?

“My granny was recently diagnosed with dementia and my Aunt Sally brought me some of her jewelry on my wedding day — the tears were rollin’. Remember that ring Tyler proposed with? Well, I received the matching bracelet from my Granny on our wedding day.”

“Walking down the aisle with my daddy to my soon-to-be husband, all of our best friends standing up there in the sunlight, and my grandaddy waiting to marry us — all while surrounded by our people. It was a surreal moment full of immeasurable love and joy. Everyone was crying happy tears and it was the most beautiful moment I’ve ever experienced. Having my grandaddy marry us was one of our best decisions and having a wedding party of 24 initially sounded insane but it was the best feeling seeing all of them standing up there. They each mean the absolute world to us and without them, our day would not have been half of what it was.”

“For the biggest laugh, we had a s’mores station at our reception and the electronic fire pit wasn’t working for the first hour so I caught some of the guests roasting a marshmallow on the candles.”

Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?

“Our vision was chic, unique, and a good time. It was brought to life by the venue itself. It was an absolute dream and the view did most of the decorating for us. Although, Melissa Timms Designs added that extra umph that we were looking for with all of the marvelous florals. The people, the sunshine, the bar, and the music brought the good time.

The uniqueness was found in the little things: 1 year old spruce trees as wedding favors, Chandler (our pup) as a ring bearer, a letter ‘K’ pinata as the guest book, hand painted Bibles made specifically for each bridesmaid, and milk & cookies and a s’mores bar as the ‘groom’s cake’. He’s a lover of all things sweet.

One of my favorite ‘challenges’ was the 11 bridesmaid’s dresses. Ten bridesmaids living in Texas and only me and one bridesmaid living in Tennessee made for an interesting time finding a different dress for each bridesmaid. What made it even more interesting was ordering from Poshmark with hopes that they would all mesh and fit! (there’s no return policy with Poshmark) I chose two brands- Adrianna Papell and Aidan Mattox and three colors- biscotti, champagne, and beige. Somehow it all worked out and everyone got their dress for under $120, one even got her dress for $20!”

Best advice for future couples?

“Remember that this day is about marrying your best friend at the altar, not about impressing others. It’s about being with your people and enjoying time with them, not about the color of the groomsmen’s tie. Slow down and enjoy the season of being an engaged couple planning one of the best days of your life, it flies by.”

What are you looking forward to the most as newlyweds?

“Having a live-in best friend that never turns down pizza or wine and who always gets me iced water even in the middle of watching a movie. Doing our best to make even the smallest part of the world a better place and growing a family of pups and hopefully one day children.”
