We are so excited to see Alyssa and Nick’s wedding featured on Phoenix Bride & Groom this fall! We just adore this couple, and loved teaming up with the always amazing Whitney at Some Like it Classic on their sophisticated navy, blush and gold wedding at The Westin Kierland Resort.
We were counting down the days until Nick and Alyssa’s wedding day because we just adore these two. They are so fun, so loving, so kind. They are the kind of couple that make us honored to be wedding photographers. Nick and Alyssa have such big, giving hearts and are always thinking of others before themselves. Even on a day that was set aside just for them, we watched as they sweetly loved on everyone else around them. On a day that was supposed to be all about them, they were all about others. As we were taking the final photographs of Alyssa and Nick’s heirlooms, she walked outside with a wrapped, gold box in her hand. “I have something for you!” she explained. We stopped and looked up. “You got us something? On your wedding day?” we stared in amazement. And it even matched her wedding colors! In the middle of the craziest, most chaotic week of Alyssa’s life, when she should’ve been being served and shouldn’t have to think about anyone else, she was. She did. And not just her bridal party, but even her photographers. It’s just who she is. As we pulled back the ribbon back and took out each item one by one, we got emotional. Why? It was all of our favorite little things. It was so personal, and we were so touched. People ask us all the time if we ever have “bridezillas.” And you know what? We don’t. We are so proud to say we don’t have bridezillas. We have AJ Brides. And we are constantly blown away by them. We have brides who are warm. Loving. Thoughtful. Giving. Kind. Selfless. We have Alyssas. They inspire us. And that, friends, is the greatest gift of all.
Here are few of our favorites from their day! To see the full feature on Phoenix Bride & Groom, click here!
