A long distance relationship turns into together forever … check out Devon & Tyler’s California vineyard wedding today!
from the photographer: “Devon and Tyler were married at a southern California vineyard at the peak of autumn. Surrounded by eighty of their closest family and friends, the newlyweds enjoyed a modern affair in a neutral color palette. Dreamy, classic, and a hint of contemporary, all against the setting sun.”
How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of one another?
We met in chemistry class in college. We had a study session together and I thought Tyler was extremely intelligent and handsome. Tyler was a bit oblivious that I liked him and didn’t realize I really just wanted to hang out, so his first thought was, “Wow, this girl is not prepared to study”. Luckily, he got the hint eventually.

If you had one piece of advice for other couples, what would it be?
One of the best lessons we have learned is that you can’t view a relationship as a 50/50 split of responsibilities and effort. You should both always try to give the relationship 100%. This has helped our relationship grow in ways we never could have imagined.
What is the most honest thing you can say about love?
Love is filled with ups and downs, but if you find the right person it is a beautiful adventure.
