Here we are, in the midst of September, and I have not blogged a single one of our wonderful weddings this year.
Please forgive me — we have been busy, running around collecting poignant memories for couples and families alike!
Of course, being a stickler for a good timeline (as our brides and grooms know), I’m happy to retrace the year now, and begin blogging where I left off — with Alyssa and Greg.
Back in May, these two helped us kick off our official 2019 Wedding Season in earnest. Their spring golf course wedding was lovely, packed with all sorts of emotion, and hints of lush Wisconsin foliage, just about to bloom.
We began the day with Alyssa and Greg’s closest family and friends, capturing candid moments with their bridal party and adorable flower girls.
Of course, Alyssa’s daughter, Lucy, held a special place during the day, as Alyssa’s Maid of Honor. She was a gorgeous ray of sunshine, and brought much laughter (and a few tears) to the day.
The details of the ceremony were beautiful, and family gathered close throughout to lend their love and support.
With full hearts, and a resounding feeling of ease, Alyssa and Greg made it official. Their love was palpable, and the relief they felt in finally becoming a family was truly endearing.
They even had a small bonding ceremony, during which Greg exchanged vows with Lucy, and gifted her a locket to express his unfailing support in her life, as his new daughter. Their moment was tender and sweet, and more than a little tear-filled.
When we first met, Alyssa shared with me the love she felt for Greg, and just as importantly, the respect she felt for him, watching the way he cared for her daughter. Their bond as a family is the cornerstone of their relationship. Well, that, understanding, and of course, laughter.
Their bridal party was hilarious, and surrounded Alyssa and Greg with good vibes the entire afternoon.
We snuck off for a few romantics before the party started, and then Alyssa and Greg danced the night away, thrilled to begin their new life together.
Congrats, Alyssa and Greg! Thank you so much for sharing your day and your love story with us! We love you guys! 🙂
