Fraternal Order of Eagles in Defiance, Ohio Wedding | Mr. & Mrs. Hines

Olivia and Tyler are MARRIED!! They had such a beautiful summer day to celebrate their marriage at Fraternal Order of Eagles in Defiance, Ohio Wedding! These two are so easy going and JOYFUL and that is really evident in their images! They were seriously one of the easiest couples we’ve ever had in front of our cameras because they were so natural together- it truly looked effortless.

A little bit about the couple, from the bride’s perspective:

“Tyler and I met at Defiance College. Where we both ran cross country, it was a small team so there was no missing each other. Throughout the first year or so we grew a stronger friendship with one another through our mutual friend. He eventually got up enough courage to ask me out. Our first date was to the movies to see Ralph breaks the internet and the rest is history.

When Tyler proposed we were on the beach at sunrise in Florida. We were taking family photos with his family when he told me he found something in the sand. He found a bottle in the sand and said there was a note inside. It took some time but we eventually got the note out of the bottle. I started to read the note that he wrote, he then read the ending part of the note. Once we finished reading the note he then proposed. It was a very sweet thought out proposal.

We love exploring new places and creating memories wherever we go. We love to just spend quality time together, whether it’s playing an intense game of uno or watching a new tv show/movie. We can’t wait for the many adventures to come!”

I hope you enjoy re-living their special day through these sneak peeks!
