Heather + Tyler: A Springy Backyard Tennessee Wedding by Ulmer Studios
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Spring is (almost) in the air here in DC, and Heather and Tyler’s lovely Southern wedding has us thinking the warmer weather can’t come soon enough! Shot by the talented Josh and Amber of Ulmer Studios, the crisp, clear images depict a classic backyard celebration filled with springy pastels and plenty of Etsy-inspired finishing touches. Prepare to fall in love from start to finish!

The September morning began a little hazy, but warm sunshine eventually broke through for the happy couple’s big day, which took place in the Tennessee town where they met and fell in love. Tyler’s friends encouraged him to ask for Heather’s number (she worked at the bank next door to his fire station), and the poor girl was so nervous she initially said no! The following Monday, Heather changed her mind and sent a co-worker to hand him the digits. Always certain of their bond even when she was not, Tyler eventually proposed. Heather spent the morning of the ceremony packing the last of her things–their wedding night was the first night she spent at her husband’s  home.

The bride worked with stylist Megan Byrd to pull off the Southern-rustic decor, which featured plenty of mason jars and hand-strung streamers. The late afternoon reception was a simple one–heavy appetizers replaced a sit-down meal and there was no dance floor–but family and friends came together over cocktails and a cornhole set custom-made by Heather’s parents.

The couple’s one-of-a-kind cake was decorated on-site: Megan pulled flowers from the decor to top the textured white confection, and Heather hung the mint fan backdrop herself. “It was the best thing I have ever eaten!” says the bride.

Heather and Tyler ingeniously incorporated the way they first met into their send-off. Instead of hiring a limo to whisk them a way, a fire truck from Tyler’s station did the pick-up! The couple honeymooned in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and continue to live in Tennessee. Thanks again to Ulmer Studios for sharing their sweet celebration with us!
