Meet Tyler and Cody! Tyler is one of our own wedding industry ‘family’ here in Austin – a florist with Westbank Flower Market. So you can imagine that their wedding in January we are all excited for. I was thrilled when my good friend and planner supreme bee, Becky Navarro of Pearl Events played her magical role of matchmaker and suggested we work together. These two had me rolling with laughter during their entire session and their plan to have Jennifer Hudson come to their wedding. So here is a little bit more about them.

  • Q. What are your day jobs?
    A. Tyler is a Florist and Cody is Choir Teacher
  • Q. Where did you both grow up?
    A. Tyler Lubbock and Cody Bryan-College Station
  • Q. How did you meet?
    A. We met during the summer while we were both waiting tables at a small restaurant called Zed’s.
  • Q. Tell me about the proposal?
    A. We went to London for new years. Cody decided to wait until the day before we left to look for his passport… to which he couldn’t find it. So Tyler ended up going to London on the scheduled flight and Cody came the next day after getting his rush passport. The whole time in London, Cody was trying to propose but Tyler kept ruining it. Finally after dinner we went to the London Tower Bridge and again i ruined it… so finally Cody just asked while we were walking down the sidewalk. =)
  • Q. Name a few places that are special to you.
    A. Napa Valley. We took our first trip here and had so much fun on our wine tour with the cubans.
    Boston- had a good trip and went to the Red Sox game which was a highlight
    North- our first dinner date was here and we stayed way past closing talking. Cody refused to give me a kiss goodbye though!
    London- The Fireworks at the London Eye on NYE. We snuck fifths of vodka in our coats and just had a great time.
  • Q. When you can do anything you want to do, what do you do?
    A. We love a good brunch. Love to do anything with our dogs. Estate sales. Travel. peter pan golf. ipic theaters
  • Q. What is your favorite music and/or songs that mean the most to you as a couple? A playlist of sorts would be great! And any stories are great too!
    A. Cody hates everything tyler likes. =)
    I’m more country, pop, christian. Cody’s more classical, opera, and a little pop. We are going to see Kelly Clarkson and Penatonix is opening and we are clear each excited for opposite reasons. In the car its usually a low country station playing and me singing at the top of my lungs. (I’m a terrible singer but think its funny that Cody teaches it for a living)
  • Q. What are your favorite foods/restaurants?
    A. Chinese food…. all day. P.F Chang’s. Cheesecake factory. We frequent Tacos and Tequila on the weekends. Cody makes a great chili that we have a lot.
  • Q. Any pets? Tell me about them!
    A. Cody had his dog Chloe before we met. she is a small mix. We call her “Chole” cause the vet typed her name in like that and they think its her name… really he just couldn’t spell Chloe… I’ve had my dog for 10 years now.  Her name is seven and she is just the best – lab mix and in her old age is getting grouchy =) I registered her as a service dog so i can take her anywhere we go. We rescued our third about 6 months ago. Her name is Bonnie and she was very abused so she doesn’t get out much but loves us and the other dogs.
