They first crossed paths during freshman year in high school when they sat near each other in Spanish class. Something sparked between them, but since both Kyrie and Tyler were in different relationships, they turned the spark into a casual high school friendship. As fate would have it, that wasn’t the end of their story. A year later, they found themselves side by side in a geometetry class and now, both single, their friendship started to grow. They started hanging out outside of school, and one night as they laid and looked at the Indiana stars above them, they decided they were dating.
Tyler and Kyrie’s laid-back, relaxed personalities and complete adoration for each other made aspects of their relationship easy even though some would consider making it through nursing school, the military, and the growing pains of life nearly an impossible feat. And last winter, on a family trip, Tyler took Kyrie under the Christmas lights and asked her to be his wife. Finally, their hard work had paid off.
They’ll be married next summer in a low-key, laidback affair – so fitting to their personalities. We celebrated their engagement by wandering through the forests and lakes of Chain O’Lakes and taking the time to relax and enjoy the fall during the craziness of Kyrie’s last year of Nursing school. Kyrie and Tyler, I had such a joyful and relaxing time documenting your relationship and I’m so excited to witness your day next year! Counting down – xx, M
