Tyne & Chuck | Brown City Backyard Wedding

I knew as soon as I meet Tyne and Chuck via video chat that their wedding would be one I’d never forget.  I had such a lovely time getting to know them and their delightful families, of which I’m pretty sure I now belong and I love that. It is clear to see why these two are so beloved by friends and family and I’m so glad they have found each other, they are a perfect fit. I could go on and on about all the fun we had but the photos will tell the story better than I could. Hope you enjoy these favorite moments of mine from their day.

Can we just let family backyard weddings be a thing for good now? They are personal, sweet, and feel like home. 2020 gave us this even though it wasn’t asked for and I’d like them to stay.

Congrats to this beautiful couple! Thank you for having me, appreciating me, and welcoming me like family. You two are the cat’s pajamas!
