Newborn, Maternity &Family Photographer

Brian and Aleesha are from 2 different states. These two met in college and fell in love. They are now living thier happily ever after.
What did you envision your wedding being, prior to planning? We wanted it to feel fun and laid back
What was your color palette and your style vision? Purple and silver although it kinda ended up being purple and white
Describe your day:
The wedding was everything we could of dreamed of. We had family and friends come from all over to be with us on our wedding day and that made it super special.
The weather played a big factor into our day. It rained until about 2 hours before we were about to start. Then magically the sun came out and it was a beautiful warm fall day.
Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors,your cake, etc. My flowers were calla lillys, stephanotis and a purple flower. We let the florist use her imagination on the rest of the flowers. My wedding dress was essense of australia d2174 fit and flare. Our cake had three layers one being carrot cake our favorite.
What was your favorite moment? My favorite moment was walking down the isle and seeing Brian for the first time. It felt like time stood still and all the stress of planning the wedding was gone.
What is one piece of advice that you could givebrides-to-be?My best advice is that it is ok to feel really stressed and want everything to be perfect. Just have faith that even if something goes wrong, and it most likely will, that it won’t ruin your day. People told me later all the things that went wrong and I honestly didn’t notice any of them because I was so caught up in the moment.
Remember to include yourselves when you do a food count.
Our officiant told us to protect each other’s hearts and to forgive.
Those were probably the single most valuable things we were told while planning our wedding. You can so easily get swept up into believing you need to please or entertain everyone and remember the day is about the two of you.
Forgiving was the hardest one I think we had to learn, not necessarily forgiving each other, but family and friends. Not everyone will make it to your wedding and not everyone will be excited for your wedding. Even parents are not always the most excited… they are giving you away after all. I think it’s also important to know it is ok to feel a little lost when it’s over.
