So...I crying at every wedding. No joke, completely serious I cry every ceremony and usually during the mother and son dance! When I get the privilege of knowing the bride personally well then shoot, I have no chance than to cry during the day.
I have known Alyssa since I moved to Saint Charles about 8 years ago. I have watched her go from a young little girl to an absolutely beautiful woman. When I saw that her and Josh were dating I knew that she had found the perfect guy that will take care of her and love her completely. Then they got engaged and I was constantly crossing my fingers hoping to get the call to meet with her to talk about her wedding! When that call came, I cried and was super duper excited!
The wedding day was perfect! It had two new beautiful venues, a drop dead gorgeous wedding party, beautiful details and of course the most in love and adorable married couple. I couldn't to show you all this beautiful wedding and how their day unfolded. So do yourself a favor and put on the wedding pandora station and relive their wedding day with them!
Some thoughts from the bride and groom!
What was the funniest part of the day?
Alyssa: Josh's whole outfit being too small for his muscles.
Josh: Listening to my best man Kris give his speech.
What was one thing you will NEVER forget?
Alyssa: I will never forget Josh crying when he saw me at the end of the aisle.
Josh: When those doors first opened and I saw my wife standing at the end of the aisle in her beautiful dress.
Any advice for future couples?
Alyssa: Make it a point to breathe, be present, and soak up every second and moment, because you only have one day!
Josh: If you plan on having a wedding have more money than you thought on hand!
