Tyler & Elizabeth's Country Wedding

August 14, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

If ever there were two people who light up one another's worlds, it has to be Tyler and Elizabeth.  They have truly found home in each other's hearts, and it was a privilege to capture their day.  

Tyler and Elizabeth wanted a relaxed country wedding, so they opted to say their vows under an open sky at her grandparent's home.

Something blue...

Being surrounded by those you love and sharing moments with your close friends and family is so much of what fills a heart to overflowing on a wedding day.

Something about the photo below captures Elizabeth well.  She's relaxed, and affectionate, and caring…down to giving the dog a tummy rub on her wedding day.

First look…

Elizabeth, you are stunning.

Midway through bridal party portraits the father of the bride showed up with some redneck props to spice things up a bit.  So fun!

Ceremony time...

Trust issues came out over cake...

…they fought...

…they made up...

…this is marriage, and it looks good on them.

Father/daughter dance…the father of the bride broke it down like only a forty something chap who's braved a hip replacement can.  The mother of the bride whispered to me later that he was sure to be sore the following day.  This is love, laughs, and pure awesomeness, y'all.  You have my vote, Mark.

The father/daughter dance had me laughing, but the mother/son dance had me fighting tears.  It was a beautiful moment.

The bride and groom, lost in their own world, and unaware of the other dancers around them…

They danced and the shadows of the day stretched out long, and evening delivered the truth…it had been a perfect day.

You guys are amazing.  So blessed to be a part of your day!  Congrats again!

Special thanks to Janelle for second shooting!

Hey there!  I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories .  I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer.  I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories.  People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful.  I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing.  That's why I take photos.  I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them.  I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter.  I always feel like the lucky one because I am.  Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us.  And that inspires my socks off every time.   So yes.  I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are.  I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect.  -xoxo
