Neiry and Tyler’s dreamy fall wedding day is here! We loved documenting their wedding day at Prairie Landing Golf Club with both photography and videography.
This couple is so incredibly sweet! We met last year as they started planning their wedding day. Then this spring, I photographed their engagement session which was a blast. It’s been a joy getting to know this couple and documenting these special moments for Neiry, Tyler, and their son, Ezra throughout the past year.
From the Bride
We met at Olivet Nazarene University when I was a junior and Tyler was a senior. We studied together after my Messiah Concert in 2019, and we talked until Thanksgiving break. After Thanksgiving break, we went out on our first date with fast food in Tyler’s car watching vlogs. Since we met, he has always been my good morning and goodnight, and we both decided we wanted that forever.
Tyler proposed in July 2021 in front of all my family as we celebrated the 4th of July. We both love Jesus, and we incorporate that love into our everyday lives with our son Ezra who we both adore so much. We both enjoy coffee and going to new places!
Favorite Part Of The Planning Process
My (Neiry) favorite part of the planning process was the wedding dress and my bridal party. Being able to ask my bridal party to be part of our special day was extremely exciting.

The Wedding Day
Neiry and Tyler’s mid-October wedding day at Prairie Landing Golf Club couldn’t have been more beautiful!
Both Neiry and Tyler got ready on-site at the venue before sharing a first touch and letter exchange along with reveals for Neiry and their wedding party. These moments were so sweet & full of joy. We loved documenting them!
Throughout the afternoon and before the ceremony, we loved capturing all the fall vibes for Neiry and Tyler with their wedding party and loved ones. I loved seeing Neiry’s bridal look come together from her princess dress and gorgeous bouquet to her floor-length veil complete with the prettiest pearl detail. A fall wedding dream!
Neiry and Tyler shared a beautiful outdoor ceremony (this photog is so glad they opted for an outdoor ceremony like they dreamed of!) surrounded by their loved ones. After the ceremony, it was photo time and time to celebrate the night away!
One of our favorite parts of Neiry and Tyler’s wedding day was after the ceremony! We loved spending time with the newlyweds during the fall sunset glow. The couple, their love, and that light were GORGEOUS! Some of my favorite fall wedding photos to date.
Another favorite part of their wedding day at Prairie Landing Golf Club was working with our favorite, Michaela, as she designed florals for the day and working with a new vendor favorite, Ashley. We made a great team to bring Neiry and Tyler’s wedding vision to life!
And last but not least, I’ll always remember the dance Neiry shared with their son, Ezra, and the happiness on Tyler’s face as he watched them dance together at the reception.
Neiry & Tyler – Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us! We have so much love for your little family and wish you a beautiful marriage ahead!!
