Alyssa & Michael

One of the best parts of the job Marc and I have with capturing peoples wedding day, is getting to know the couple throughout the process.   Most weddings we have the pleasure of capturing has similar parts;  a white dress, a ceremony, a kiss, a cake, a first dance.  What we have quickly learned over the course of the last 5 years photographing weddings is that the little things makes our job unique and enjoyable and different every time we show up the morning of the wedding.  Most importantly it is the couple themselves and the journey they have shared together that make each and every wedding unique.

Alyssa and Michaels story started in junior high.  They met through participating in their school musicals together.  It was easy for these two to become friends Michael absolutely adores Alyssa, which was easy to see by the way he looked at her through out the wedding day.  Alyssa and Michael dated throughout high school and soon came to find out they were expecting a little blessing.    Rosalie was born and their friendship and love grew deeper and stronger as they welcomed her into their lives.

Alyssa’s vintage style was present in all the details of her wedding day.  From her vintage high neck gown, to her delicate birdcage veil, to all of the perfect little details she had placed on each table.  Alyssa vision came perfectly to life.

One of the sweetest things to we experienced on the day of the wedding was the closeness and bond this little beautiful family has formed.   My favorite moment was soon after the first kiss Michael scooped up their daughter, put his arm around his new wife and walked down the aisle with the biggest smile I have ever seen.

We had such a wonderful time getting to know Alyssa and Michael along with their family and friends.   I hope you enjoy a few of our favorite captures from their wedding day.   We know many years of happiness are in the future for this sweet little family of three.
