A Diamond Lake Backyard Wedding | Tanya & James

Tanya and James are married! Their wedding day was proof that nothing can take away from your marriage, even if your wedding looks different than you originally planned. When the pandemic struck, they knew things needed to drastically change, so they decided to scale back their guest list to just immediate family and found a new venue to host the event. They decided on a backyard wedding at James’ family’s lake home in Diamond Lake, Michigan. These two handled all of the curveballs that COVID threw them with such grace and in the end, everything couldn’t have come together more beautifully. I can’t imagine a more perfect day for truly one of the most kind, considerate, and classy couples out there! I have so many favorites and it was almost impossible to narrow things down for this blog post. A big congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Gaylor!
