Delafield Hotel Wedding: Ali & Tyler!
Ali and Tyler have been envisioning their Delafield Hotel wedding for years. They have been together since their freshman year of high school, evolving their relationship to the point when Tyler asked the fateful question.
“Tyler proposed on June 6th, 2016 (a day before his birthday). I planned a weekend getaway at his lakehouse for his birthday which included decorating his lakehouse, making all of his favorite foods, hiking, and boating. In the morning I wanted to go for a run and he agreed to go with me (which he never agrees to run with me), so we went for a hike to the top of a nearby tower and ran 3 miles on the trails through the Kettle Moraine State Forest. We went boating for a while after and I kept bugging him about wanting to fish so we left to get our fishing licenses and some worms at the local gas station. When we returned, we packed a cooler and went out so that I could finally fish! It was raining on and off so I was wrapping myself in a blanket to stay dry, but Tyler kept telling me to stand at the front of the boat to have a better casting range. I kept refusing, stating that I was comfortable – not knowing how difficult I was making this on him 🙂 He finally took the fishing pole out of my hands and asked me to stand up. I did, and what happened next was a total blur. I do not remember one single word he said. I was in shock – we were supposed to be here for his birthday, but he had been planning this all along. It was the perfect day together and it was all, surprisingly, for me. It was the best surprise I have ever gotten – oh, and I obviously said “yes” to the question he apparently asked me.”
Ali’s aunt’s house was the perfect setting for her to get ready. We love how the different textures really complimented all of her wedding details!
We knew Ali and Tyler were looking for a candid coverage of their friends and family. We just had no idea how candid these characters would be!
Between the bridesmaids’ performance and the choreographed dance from the kids in the bridal party, Ali and Tyler got more entertainment than they could have anticipated.
