Most of the couples I photograph plan their wedding for 12-18 months. Chris and Alyssa did it in less than 3 weeks. Chris' awesome mom Melinda did a lot of the wedding planning. She was worried about getting everything ready in time. The wedding came together beautifully - it was perfect!
Meet the bride and groom: Alyssa and Chris.
Now meet the real Alyssa and Chris. This couple was smiling and laughing throughout the entire day.
If I were to sum up the couple in three words they would be: happy, relaxed, and devoted to their family.
Chris and his mom share a private moment at the start of the day.
They say when you marry your spouse, you marry his or her family. Chris is already like part of his bride's family and gets a group hug from his father-in-law and sister-in-law.
Chris greets his grandpa who drove a long way to see the wedding.
Alyssa's dad helps Chris get ready.
Did I mention this family is fun?
Alyssa's mom helps the bride with her veil.
I love this photo of Alyssa hugging her youngest sister with her older sister in the background. Chris told me that on their second date, the youngest sister told him he was going to marry Alyssa and have three kids.
Alyssa helps her dad with his boutonniere.
Everyone is ready...
