Tyler joined St. Pete Catholic’s swim team in August of his senior year, where he met his future wife and sophomore teammate Haele. It wasn’t until February that Haele walked into her first period Religion class, taught by Mr. McEntegart, that she saw a dozen red roses and a card from Tyler saying “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
Tyler invited Haele to his senior prom and they have been best friends ever since. For nearly ten years they have seen each other through college and graduate school, the birth of new cousins and the death of beloved grandparents. They contribute the way that they love each other to a wonderful example set by their big, crazy, loving families.
Haele & Tyler got ready with their closest family and friends at The Birchwood in downtown St. Petersburg, FL last Friday…. and the day was absolute perfection. The weather was gorgeous, especially for Florida, and neither Haele nor Tyler were nervous to say their vows they had waited so long to tell one another. After their stunning church ceremony, they opted to take their portraits alongside the St. Petersburg bay…. where the sun had set and left the most gorgeous light for these two. They quickly proceeded to their reception where their guests welcomed them with warm smiles, hilarious toasts, and the sweetest of glances as they watched these two enjoy their perfect wedding evening. Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day!
