Emily & Tyler Cook – Sept. 26, 2020


Emily and Tyler were high school sweethearts, but they met for the first time at church during Vacation Bible School. At first Tyler intimidated Emily because she was super shy, and he was so outgoing. He was the life of the party and kept everyone laughing.

THE FIRST DATE: Emily and Tyler’s first date took place at the Blue Moon Drive-In Theater April 17, 2015. They had so much fun and were instantly best friends.

THE PROPOSAL: Emily knows Tyler like the back of her hand, and he isn’t the best at keeping secrets. So Emily pretty much figured out Tyler was planning on proposing, so she came right out with it and asked him if he was. Tyler told her no, he wasn’t – and he could immediately tell how disappointed Emily was because she thought she had it figured out. He felt so bad about the whole situation that he ended up proposing to her the next day.

THE WEDDING: The Barn at Shady Grove

Sept. 26, 2020, rolls around, and it’s a beautiful day. Emily and Tyler couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was beyond what they could have expected. Everything went really well. COVID guidelines made for a smaller ceremony, but Emily and Tyler were really glad to be able to spend the day together surrounded by their closest friends and family.

FAVORITE MOMENT: Emily and Tyler’s favorite wedding moment was their first look. In Emily’s words, “It was so special because it was in private away from everyone, so we got to really enjoy the moment.”

THEIR LOVE: Tyler loves most that Emily is supportive, loving and always happy no matter what. What Emily loves most about Tyler is that he is such a caring person – “the type to give you the shirt off his back. He has such a big heart.”
