Alissa & Brian {MARRIED}

The first Blue Ocean Ideas production team member is married!! This wedding was extra special for me to shoot because Brian and I work together. It has been great getting to know Alissa better and now that she lives in Baltimore we will see her even more!

Brian and Alissa met and fell in love at Lynchburg college. Now they are MARRIED!! Their wedding was in New Jersey (Alissa's hometown) and it was beautiful. These two love each other and others so much. 

One of the special parts about Alissa and Brian's wedding was that Brian illustrated the two of them and put them on many different pieces. He designed the invitation, program, wine bottle labels, and even an animated video of the characters before the wedding started! It was adorable. He also made a jewelry box for Alissa that had her gift in it as well as a dual jewelry box for their rings. I love personalized details!

Brian and Alissa reminded me of why I love shooting first looks so much. There was a lot of emotion and Brian was so excited to see his Bride!  It was so easy taking pictures of them because they are so happy together. 

At the reception their bridal party had a little surprise for them. Alissa's sisters sang and danced to a song and then the groomsmen did the same thing to a different song. It was hilarious! There was so much joy in their day.

It was a wonderful day and I am very happy for them. Enjoy these photos from Alissa and Brian's big day!

I am so happy for you two!! I know you will do wonderful things together :)
