What can I say about this couple! I've known these two from my time spent at PLNU, and I was so stoked to capture their day. They had such a special celebration and I'm honestly SO grateful I got to be a part of it.
As the day began, Sam and Alyssa were both getting ready, and I asked Sam, "Are you ready to get married today?". He looked at me with the biggest smile and said, "Yes, I am SO ready!" with so much excitement. That immediately set the mood for the rest of the day.
During the first look as Alyssa approached, Sam was literally smiling so big as he waited to see his bride for the first time. Her smile was excited and nervous as she approached her groom and hugged him from behind. They both soaked in the moment for a brief couple of seconds until Sam finally turned around and completely lost it as he gazed at his beautiful future wife! I won't lie, I definitely cried a bit too.... a lot a bit.
Not only was this day special for both Sam and Alyssa, but it was actually Sam's parent's anniversary, and they shared a special dance and cake cutting together. Now they share the same anniversary... seriously, how cute is that?!
I think that the amount of love, support, and celebration that happened on this day is clearly portrayed in their photos below! Enjoy them, and show Sam and Alyssa some love! :)
