The Cotton Room Wedding – Tyler and Kerry are Married!

My favorite thing about this Cotton Room wedding had to be the people. The smiles were genuine and their care for every one of their guests and vendors couldn’t be ignored. I know I say this a lot, but I really do get to work with the best people on this earth. All that said, here’s Tyler and Kerry’s wedding day. Congratulations to you both, and Tacos again soon!

About the Couple

Where did your wedding take place?

The Cotton Room

What was your favorite moment on your wedding day?

The moment I looked down the aisle on my father’s arm and saw my husband.

What was the most helpful piece of advice you received when it came to planning your wedding?

Enjoy the process, no matter how stressful it may become. It is a time in your life to treasure planning such an important event. 

What was the biggest reason you chose Dave Shay Photography on your wedding day?

Dave’s photos blew us away when we were researching photographers. On our initial meeting we had a great connection with him and knew he would be the one who would capture moments on our wedding day that we would cherish for years to come. We also like tacos just as much as he does.

Our day was filled with love, excitement and a few nerves. We assembled an amazing team of vendors including Dave that may the whole day easy and enjoyable.
