We don't take on a ton of full plans. The main reason being because the amount of work it requires - we would not be able to do 100% to all our brides if we take on too many. Luckily, we had brides spread out over the whole year last year. The other reason is because I get too attached! Seriously. It is so bittersweet to see their day approach. I literally almost got teary eyed at Alyssa and Chris's rehearsal. I am pathetic- I know!
We met Alyssa and Chris almost a year before their big day. Immediately I knew I would love this couple! Not only is Chris the sweetest guy ever, but he was just head over heels for his bride. He came to every single meeting and made sure that Alyssa was getting the wedding of her dreams. He opened doors for me and her! He has got to be one of my favorite grooms. I enjoyed all our meetings, phone chats, texts, and e-mails. I will truly miss working with them. They were a breeze and So.much.fun!
I think my shining moment was when she was having a slight emergency in the car on the way over to the chapel and she told her mom "I just want Dana!" My heart melted just slightly - I am not gonna lie. We did have one hiccup with an over zealous church coordinator. But other than that it was a perfect day. Enjoy the pictures..
