You know what I love? When people do things on their day that are just really them. Because you know what? It’s not anyone else’s wedding.
Ryan and Alyssa started out the day by meeting at Starbucks for a relaxing, special moment before the crazy began. I got to come at the end as their personal paparazzi (I’m pretty sure some of the customers were really offended that I was just taking pictures of their private moment without talking to them), and I’m so glad I did. I love when people build little moments into their day that inevitably goes way too fast.
Everything was lovely. Most every detail was done by Alyssa or Ryan or some member of their family and friends. The weather was perfect. The wedding party was a blast and a half. The ceremony was touching. And once again I was reminded why I love my job. I’m a big fan of people and I think marriage is the best. So, getting to be a part of great people starting a pretty super part of their lives with a spectacular day of celebration is just my cup of tea. Thank you, Ryan and Alyssa for trusting me with such an important role on your day! I’m excited for all of the adventures ahead for you two!
I wasn’t joking when I said most everything was done by family and friends, but here are their amazing vendors! And a special thank you to my sister in law Sharaya for shooting with me!
