Are you here for all the incredible details and sweet, traditional touches of Alyssa and Steven’s Troon North wedding day? Well, if you scroll down to the first look THAT’S why you should be reading this post, truly! Look at that smile on Alyssa’s face when she sees her groom, Steven, for the first time on their wedding day. It makes me smile and tear up at the same time. Sometimes images can bring you both happiness and a bittersweet feeling as well. These two work incredibly hard and you could tell they left no stone unturned for their Troon North wedding day!
Allow me to tell you a little backstory, Alyssa and Steven met at their alma mater, The University of Arizona, in Tucson. You can see their engagement session we did in Wildcat territory by clicking here. They have a special love of U of A and I left wondering if I was an honorary Wildcat! That love and excitement for their school was evident but seeing just how much they loved and honored their family and friends on their own wedding day was something else! They had a small private ceremony, with their bridal party joining them afterwards for photos. And their reception site had hundreds of handmade cranes, in Alyssa’s favorite color – purple! They also had a fry bar to finalize an incredible evening, which I’ve never seen before, and the guests LOVED!!
Knowing how sweet, thoughtful, and kind Alyssa and Steven are it was evident that those values came from their families. They honored Steven’s parents with champagne flutes, as it was their wedding anniversary and Alyssa danced the entire night away with her mom, who may have been the calmest, most collected mother of a bride I’ve ever seen! Alyssa told me that they wanted to take photos with each table and early in the night to “capitalize dancing time”! The dance floor was never empty! Steven and his mother changed the traditional mother/son dance into a dance that represented the different stages of life raising a child. It was both sweet and hilarious. The part where his mom is praying a toddler sleeps is exactly my season of life and had me laughing!
I am so thankful these two came into my life, it was an absolute pleasure capturing their Troon North wedding day and celebrating the best day of their lives with them! Alyssa & Steven, wishing you a million years of wedded bliss!
