Pumpkins, sweaters, and an adorable couple?! It doesn’t get any sweeter than this, and I’m so excited to share Tyler Van Wanzeele and Baileigh Fleming’s fall engagement photos at Wea Creek Orchard on the blog!
This darling couple grew up in Otterbein, Indiana—a small town where everyone knows everybody. So, they’ve known each other their entire lives!
In fact, these two even “dated” in middle school. However, when Tyler wouldn’t hold Baileigh’s hand, she broke up with him. By their junior year of high school, Tyler was much more interested in hand holding, and Tyler and and Baileigh became high school sweethearts.
Now that they’re done with school, these high school sweethearts are once again making Otterbein their home, allowing them to be close to both of their families and for Tyler to be part of the family farm, which is very special to him.
In fact, Tyler’s family farm is so special to Tyler and Baileigh that they’re getting married on the Van Wanzeele property! Between harvest 2018 and planting 2019, Tyler, Baileigh, and Tyler’s family will be hard at work building a new barn on their property and turning it into the perfect wedding venue (before it’s full of tractors and tools). How incredible is that?!
Generations of Tyler’s family have lived and grown up on this land. Tyler and Baileigh’s marriage will be part of this legacy, making the family farm the perfect place to say, “I do.” Stay tuned for photos from the Fleming-Van Wanzeele wedding, because I have no doubt this venue will be both sentimental and beautiful!
Now, you wouldn’t guess this from the photos because Tyler and Baileigh killed it in front of the camera, but it was a tad cold and muddy. (Okay. A lot!)
But, in typical Tyler and Baileigh style, these two made the best of the situation, laughed through every second, and were a joy to work with. I pray that Tyler and Baileigh have beautiful weather this June, but no matter the circumstances, I know their wedding will be joy-filled and fun, because that’s who they are!
Tyler and Baileigh, I can’t tell you how honored I feel to be your wedding photographer or how excited I am for you! My favorite couples to work with are the brides and groom who simply can’t wait to marry their best friends. And, that’s exactly who you guys are.
With all the thought you’re putting into your details and how considerate you’re being toward your family, friends, and guests, I have no doubt that your wedding will be amazing. But, even more importantly, I know that your marriage will be one that others look to as an example for years to come.
I hope June 1, 2019 comes quickly so you guys can dance and live it up as husband and wife!
