Alissa + Jon are married - about damn time, as she likes to say! After over 6 years together, the two have tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Gregory Vineyard in Angier, North Carolina and I got to be their Wedding Photographer! Back in January, the two were first in front of my camera for their Engagement Session at Yates Mill Park in Raleigh, NC I can't even fathom how fast this year has past! The ceremony was a real tear jerker - Jon couldn't help but cry when he saw his beautiful bride walk down the isle. Alissa was smiling and giggling the entire time and they read the most amazing hand written vows to each other! After dinner, the party started! Alissa never left the dancefloor and they were partying the night away with their guests! What a fantastic wedding! 

What was Alissa's favorite part about planning their wedding? 

"I love seeing how excited Jon is about wedding planning. We've been together for so long that finally being able to put all the details together is just exciting." 

And she also has a tip for future brides! "I would say don't stress the little things. At the end of the day as long as you and your fiancé are happy thats all that matters." Jon encourages guys to be a part of the planning process! "Its a very fun and exciting experience. When you choose to engage your future wife its a feeling like no other so enjoy the wedding planning. Its a day to celebrate both of your relationships, it should only be planned once. Don't stress and enjoy every minute of wedding planning."

"I think i might be one of the happiest men in the world
because I get to marry the women of my dreams"
