Inn at Grace Winery

Jess and her bridesmaids got ready at The Inn at Grace Winery. This scenic farm & winery was the perfect atmosphere for a spring day. Furthermore, the grounds where in bloom and bursting with color. Once the group was ready, they headed over to Tyler!

Next, we did a first look, without the look! We often get asked to recreate this! It’s a really special moment when the couple embraces before the ceremony without actually seeing each other.

Best Moment

“Seeing my beautiful bride for the first time that day walking down the lawn at Tyler with the blooming trees and lush gardens behind her. We debated whether or not to see each other before the ceremony and decided and were glad we didn’t. It really made the moment that much more special. (Frank)” These moments are so special in these Tyler Arboretum wedding photos.

Indeed, Jess and her bridesmaids were radiating as they made their way down the aisle.  The two stood beneath a handcrafted wooden arbor built by Frank’s father for the special occasion.  The two read their thoughtful vows as the afternoon cooled. Cocktail hour was held outside and the fun continued in a historic barn.

“Our venue was Tyler Arboretum in Media. It was the perfect venue for us as it captured our love for nature while being very practical. We really loved the ceremony options, especially the fair weather option that we were lucky enough to use under magnolia trees in full bloom. The reception space is in a restored barn which really fit the overall aesthetic we wanted. (Frank)”

Wedding Inspiration

“Frank and I didn’t have a specific theme that we were after for the wedding. We just wanted to get married outdoors, somewhere beautiful surrounded by friends and family. I’ve always been drawn to lush greenery and soft florals though and wanted to incorporate both in our ceremony and reception. Honestly, I didn’t even plan for my gown to match the surroundings so perfectly- I purchased it at a BHLDN trunk show long before we booked Tyler. (Jess)”

Wedding Planning Advice

“Don’t stress yourself out too much! Use a planner of some sort. Take your time to find your vendors. Make room for the opinions of your loved ones because they are just as excited to be a part of your big day. Take conflicting opinions with a grain of salt and make sure you and your fiancé agree on the things you’re not willing to compromise. (Jess)”

Wedding Planning Experience

“I really loved planning our wedding. We had a two-year engagement, which gave us a ton of time to find our ideal venue and vendors. There was a good amount of DIY projects that went into our wedding day, which got to be stressful at times. Luckily I had some help, my father in law is an incredibly talented carpenter and made our arbor and signs for the ceremony. Also, Frank was a great help in the planning process.  (Jess)”

Last but not least, reception! Undoubtedly, the space was filled with sweet details that reflected Jess and Frank’s personalities. Without doubt, the night was magic, and the playlist was killer.  Truly, these two poured their hearts into their special day.

Wedding Vendors

In conclusion, “We are so thankful for the vendors we worked with. My hair and makeup team got to Grace Winery early and kept things simple and natural for my bridesmaids and I. Hope’s photography is simply stunning as you can see. She was such a pleasure to work with, and I don’t typically enjoy having my picture taken. I really can’t speak highly enough of her. We were over the moon at our ceremony and reception at Tyler.  Our event coordinator, Emily was incredible and communicated with us in a timely manner from day one. JAM catering is worth every penny spent, from the cocktail hour to plated entrees- everything was beautifully done.  Our DJ, Kim kept a great playlist going that really catered to our taste in music and kept everyone dancing at the reception. (Jess)” Thanks for checking out our Tyler Arboretum Wedding Photos!
