I first met the lovely Alyssa in 2013- at the time, she was a bridesmaid in Jenna and Justin’s wedding! So when Alyssa contacted me to photograph her wedding, I was over-the-moon thrilled to hear from her, to see her again, and to capture her and her sweet hubby, Steve.
I remember sitting at Panera when Alyssa, Steve and I got together to discuss their wedding details. They were giddy from their recent engagement, which happened to take place at the gazebo where we photographed their wedding images! Alyssa and Steve are a genuine and light-hearted couple, and simply smitten with each other. One of my favorite parts of their wedding day was watching them during their ceremony- they were holding hands, and Steve would gently squeeze Alyssa’s hand and lovingly rub his thumb over it as they listened to the homily. It was incredibly tender, and because they sat facing away from their guests, I was one of the rare people that got to witness this sweet gesture.
And how special it was to see so many other familiar faces in the friends, family and wedding party! In the past, we have also had the pleasure of photographing the ring bearer, some of the guests, Jenna the maid of honor (which I mentioned earlier), and in March, we will photograph Annie, Alyssa’s step-sister, and her marriage to Jason!
