It was a beautiful spring day on June 8th, 2019: ideal weather, budding spring florals, and Alyssa and Stephen’s wedding had everyone buzzing! Alyssa and Stephen are a detail-oriented couple who wanted nothing more than to have their perfect day shine brightly for everyone to enjoy. Looking back on their wedding day, we felt like there were three details that stood out to us the most we just had to share.
1.) Bridesmaids keep it light (and matching!)
Alyssa’s girls wore lightly colored matching pajama sets during preparations, and later matched in their off-white bridesmaid dresses. They matched right down to their nude-colored heels. Nothing says you’re a good bridesmaid like coordinating your shoe color with several other people! Alyssa started the day in her singular bright white pajamas during preparations, and later dressed in a stunningly classic white wedding gown. The bridesmaids’ being dressed in such light colors so close to the white of the wedding gown is a telling sign about how close Alyssa feels to her girls.
2.) White peonies
Alyssa’s bridesmaids’ bouquets were filled with white peonies from Petals Lane, complementing the embroidery on their dresses. At the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve, the scene was set with light pink peonies, roses, and white peonies. Even white orchids were used throughout the day. The mood was light, airy, and timeless: just like the romance!
3.) Bright smiles and French fries!
We can’t begin to say how great of a couple Alyssa and Stephen are, and how much our cameras loved them! Their sunny personalities came through every event. When a couple has that “special something,” we recognize it and we appreciate it. We especially loved seeing them feed each other French fries in front of the floral wall at the end of the night. It was the perfect combination of glamour, yummy food, and humor all at once!
Alyssa and Stephen celebrated their union at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve with their dear family and friends, dancing the night away to The Sid Miller Dance Band’s toe-tapping beats. Finley Catering as always, did an incredible job preparing the finest gourmet dishes for the guests throughout the night. Rafal Ostrowoski Photography was able to not only capture great moments as they happened; but also set up some wonderfully intimate moments between Alyssa and Stephen to create some stunning images they will enjoy for their whole lives. Thanks to The Styled Bride (who always does a great job), the many different ideas the couple had in mind for their wedding day all came together as one vision.
Congratulations to Alyssa and Stephen on their new marriage and new beginnings!
