First post in the New Year and today it’s extra special, because one of our favorites and sweet friends, Jennifer Larsen, said yes to her boyfriend on New Year’s Eve! That’s right friends, Jen is getting maaaarrrried! But before we start dreaming of how pretty Jen’s wedding will be, we first need to swoon over Alyssa and John’s incredibly romantic December wedding at the Park Chateau! Timeless and classic, with a dash of glam, this winter wedding is everything we love rolled into one. Stunning florals, a jaw-dropping dress and the cutest couple you ever did see. Happy 2019 friends, it’s gonna be a good one!
From Jen: Alyssa and John radiate joy and fun when they are together, which made this day just that much more incredible. They seriously light up when they are together, just wait until you see their contagious smiles! Alyssa told me that they wanted a very classic, romantic winter wedding, and they achieved exactly that and more. The wedding day vibes were full of excitement and energy from the moment I arrived to the bridal suite. I loved that Alyssa and her sister, Nicole, were willing to jump on the couch with full hair and makeup for some of the cutest sister pictures ever! Meanwhile, the groomsmen, on the other hand, were having a full on Vogue fashion shoot with my amazing second photographer, Tori Petrillo, down in the super cool library room!
Alyssa and John’s late December wedding was so beautifully and carefully planned from the ornament favors to the custom wax seals on their invitations. I have so many favorites that you’re going to see as you continue scrolling, like the thoughtful gifts that Alyssa and John exchanged before their first look, Alyssa’s heirloom invitation suite bag from her mother, the matching monogrammed PJs for the bridesmaids, the holiday socks that the groomsmen wore, the classic Rolls Royce, and unique sparkler exit outside the church following the ceremony! And it is always such a joy getting to work with a dream team of vendors like my good friends Michelle of Michelle Elise Artistry and Steph and Justin of Tone Media!
