Aria Wedding | Alyssa + Chris

April 12, 2018

Aria Wedding {11.04.17}

Chris + Alyssa began their journey as a couple back in 2009.  When a first date went incredibly right, it wasn’t long before they were officially a couple. It was Chris’ heart that Alyssa fell in love with, along with the fact that Chris reminded her so much of her father. Just like her dad, Chris is loving, caring, honest and respectful.  While Alyssa is strikingly beautiful, I’m sure Chris would also say her honesty, fun and very caring personality is what he loves most about this beautiful woman. 

Chris proposed to Alyssa on a beautiful October day, in one of the most perfect settings you could imagine.  They spent the day at a winery in New York surrounded by mountains.  After a tasting and some lunch by the lake, Chris took Alyssa for a walk down a trail and at the very top he got down on one knee and proposed.  With tears in her eye of course Alyssa said yes!

The couple chose November 4th, 2017 as their wedding date and it was an absolutely stunning day.  Warm and enjoyable for November, and surrounded by family and friends, they had absolute perfection.  The couple married at Our Lady of Loreto church in their hometown.  A beautiful brick church with light streaming in that afternoon, and one very funny Father Alan Hill.  After the ceremony the wedding party made it’s way to a golf course to take their photos, before ending up at Aria.  Aria is a very elegant venue which welcomes you with beautiful fountains and very manicured gardens which brings you into a very Italian feeling ballroom. The couple enjoyed their first dance and then after dinner there were some very special moments.  Alyssa had a parent dance with not only her father, but also with her mother and her grandfather.  Each and every one of them brought tears to my eyes.  It was so special to see Alyssa celebrate each of those very meaningful relationships.  But it wasn’t all happy tears, Alyssa and her dad coordinated a dance to a mashup of iconic songs and executed it perfectly!  Chris’ look watching it was too good, you could totally see how thoroughly impressed he was!  

Alyssa + Chris had a dream of a wedding day, and it was so cool to experience it with them.  I am so happy to know this awesome little family, and I hope their future is full of fun adventures and travels and a couple kiddos! Thank you for the invitation you guys, you have an awesome future waiting for you.
