If there is one wedding that could make me cry full crocodile tears, it’s Kailyn + Tyler’s.
Their wedding took place at Kitalou Gin in Idalou, Texas, which is just a few miles outside of Lubbock. The gin has a lot of history and preservation, and it served as the perfect venue for this rustic and elegant West Texas wedding.
Kailyn + Tyler spent the first part of their wedding day getting ready at the gin, but later took trolleys into Lubbock to the First Christian Church on Broadway, where they exchanged their vows in a gorgeous church wedding.
After the ceremony, the celebration began back at Kitalou! The newlyweds walked into the venue, ate a delicious BBQ dinner, heard the sweetest speeches, and later shared cake and danced the night away.
*NOTE: There may or may not have been a whole SD card used just for dancing photos!*
Throughout the day though, one name circled through the air. Reese –– a beautiful, little girl who passed away in 2014 who was extremely close to Tyler.
When Kailyn + Tyler exchanged handwritten letters to each other before the ceremony, Tyler wrote to Kailyn that while Reese was his “#1 girlfriend,” Kailyn was about to become his “#1 wife.”
It was a moment that still brings me to tears. A wedding that still brings me to tears.
