Garth Brooks might have friends in low places but, it turns out, he also has soulmates in the 10th row of his concerts. At least, that’s how Kaylie and Tyler see it, as they first locked eyes at one of the country singer’s shows.
Though Tyler, a helicopter pilot in the Marine Corps, and Kaylie, an event planner, eventually moved from San Diego to Washington, DC, they still managed to plan their big day back on the West Coast. Green Acre Campus Pointe had all the trimmings for their ethereal garden-themed wedding.
“Given we were to be married in Green Acre’s garden, I wanted our wedding to feel organic and romantic,” the bride explains. “I didn’t want to be committed to a color palette, so I just let my florist know I wanted soft, dusty hues.” (Needless to say, Blooms Design House delivered perfectly!)
Not ones to stick to tradition, the couple forwent a formal bridal party and opted just for a best man and maid of honor. “I also gave my maid of honor full rein on her dress,” Kaylie says. “I wanted her to feel beautiful, too!” Adding to that, the groom chucked his vows at the ceremony, choosing instead to pour his heart out in a tender, unscripted moment.
To top off the beautiful day, the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. ended the night somewhat how their love story began—blissfully crooning with their friends. “When guests won’t get off the dance floor, you know you threw a good party. Ours started singing an encore song and kept the festivities going!”
Party of 1, Please
No bridal party? No problem! Kaylie had just a maid of honor but still included her closest friends in all of the fun festivities—the bachelorette party and getting ready with her on the big day. “It relieved my stress of having to organize a bunch of people and personalities!”
“It really is true what they say. My wedding day was the best day of my life.”
