We’re sitting in our office with a set of fresh, beautiful wedding images ready to go up on the blog. Now the hard part. It’s always hard to know exactly what to say about each of our couples. Not because there’s nothing to say, but because we always want to put the right words down. But in this case, our gorgeous bride provided us with the exact right words! Shortly after Brian & Hannah’s to-die-for garden wedding this past Saturday, we posted a little preview on Instagram! And in true, sweet Hannah fashion, she shared the image and said this:
“I could not resist sharing this photo from Ryan & Alyssa Photography from Saturday. I am absolutely in LOVE and cannot wait to see the rest! Ryan and Alyssa are truly two of the sweetest, most genuine people I have ever met. From engagement photos in 100 degree summer heat to putting on this gown in a parking lot for my bridal portraits, they went above and beyond to ensure Brian and I had the best time and we had so much fun with them throughout this entire process. Thank you guys SO much!!”
Cue the tears and the overwhelming joy in our hearts you guys! We pour our heart and soul into our couples. All of them. And to know that it makes a difference means the world to us. But this isn’t about us. It’s about Brian & Hannah. And we think Hannah’s post says more about her than it does about us. Hannah is a sweetheart. She is beautiful and smart (a pharmacist!) and she gets things done right! And she found the perfect compliment in Brian. Brian is a man’s man. Smart, like Hannah (also a pharmacist!). Tall and strong. But gentle with Hannah. We saw it every time we were together!
That’s why we believe they are a perfect pair. And they had the perfect wedding to go with it! Yes, they had a snake slither through their ceremony right before Hannah walked down the aisle (ahhhhh! no no no!), but they couldn’t have asked for a more perfectly gorgeous day!
We’d be remiss if we didn’t say a special thank you to Meg of Oliver Hooper Events for caring about every little detail for Brian & Hannah’s day, for rolling with the punches, and pulling off a fantastic event. We love it when we see other vendors loving couples so well, and Meg and her team did just that!
Brian & Hannah, you know we love you two and we are cheering on your brand new marriage! And Hannah, you said you couldn’t wait to see the rest of your images. Well, this is no where near all of them, but it’s a great start! Enjoy a little relaxation with your new husband, sit down and scroll through a few memories of your perfect day!
