From Friendship to Fairytale…

Caroline and Tyler both grew up in the Orlando/Winter Park area. They met in 9th grade at their church’s youth group, where they quickly became friends and remained as best friends all throughout high school and college. Caroline attended the University of Florida in Gainsville, and Tyler attended Rollins, where he played baseball and got his MBA. Caroline and Tyler begun dating at the end of Caroline’s senior year of college. Tyler was visiting Gainesville for a football game, and he told her that he really wanted to date her. Caroline was a bit hesitant  – she was finishing college and not entirely sure what she wanted for her future – but deep down she knew Tyler was the one that she wanted to marry one day.

In March of 2020, she said yes" to taking their friendship to the next level.

Tyler popped the question on July 3rd while he and Caroline were in New Smyrna for the 4th of July weekend with their families. Caroline thought that she was just going to dinner with Tyler’s family, but when they arrived, a private yacht was waiting for just the two of them! They went out for a sunset cruise, accompanied with delicious charcuterie and drinks… and then Tyler asked Caroline to spend the rest of her life with him. 

She said “yes" again, but this time… to forever! 

After the sunset cruise, the pair returned to the restaurant to celebrate with both of their families, and Caroline says it was a moment that she will cherish for the rest of her life.

Caroline and Tyler will be married at Knowles Memorial Chapter at Rollins, and their reception will be across the street at the Alfond Inn. This area is such an important part of their story, from their faith, to friendship, to fairytale ending...it has all stemmed from here.

Caroline and Tyler reside in Winter Park. Caroline teaches Algebra at Winter Park High School, and Tyler works for Marriott Vacation Worldwide as a manager of capital markets.
