Rustic Yellow, Gray, and White Summer Wedding

Rustic Yellow, Gray, and White Summer Wedding

Ashley Novak & Tyler Berry

July 9, 2016

Tyler and Ashley chose a rustic theme for their wedding day so Celebration Farm was the perfect venue to pull it off. Yellow, gray, and white were their colors. Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous and they were excited to share their story and photos with other’s to help them plan for their big day as well! Tracy Griffin of T Marie Portraits and Photo Booth did an excellent job capturing their photos and putting together a slide show.

Ashley and Tyler first met in 8th grade math class at Prairie Middle School. They started dating July 8, 2013, right before Tyler left for basic training. Tyler knew Ashley was the one for him after Ranger School. Living through all the ruck marches and being sleep deprived, all Tyler wanted was Ashley. He knew at that point he didn’t want to be without her.  Ashley knew Tyler was the one for her when he left for Ranger School and they said goodbye at the airport. Ashley realized how much she loved him and never wanted to be without him or have to leave him again!

The proposal was well planned, sincere, and unforgettable. Tyler had friends and family take Ashley to places around town that were special to them. Then he had her dad bring her to the bridge in Fairfax where about 100 friends and family were waiting with Tyler. When Ashley arrived at the end where Tyler was standing, he proposed to her.

Their most memorable wedding moment was reading their vows to each other. Their advice to other’s getting married: “In the craziness of all the planning and on the wedding day, make time with each other to enjoy the moment and take a deep breath.”
