Tyler & Ellie ~ Harvard, IL Romantic Backyard Wedding ~ Woodstock Country Club Reception

The first time Tyler laid eyes on Ellie was at baggage claim in Haiti.  They both arrived separately on mission trips….one came from Illinois, the other, Kentucky.  After a brief conversation Ellie had to leave and Tyler went to Google.  He didn’t have much to go on, but eventually found her on Facebook, and there, the relationship began.  Some called him the stalker from Kentucky, a joke made throughout the day, but I thought he was the perfect southern gentleman…and maybe a little stalker-ish 😉  Seriously though, they are madly in love and found each other in a miraculous way.  God is pretty amazing with things like this, don’t ya think?

Also, I’m pretty much in love with everything about this romantic wedding.  Please enjoy…
