Josh & Alyssa | A Fall Wedding at The Westin Milwaukee
Josh & Alyssa were married this past weekend at The Westin in Milwaukee and it was the perfect blend of family, friends and joyful celebration. As cooler temperatures approach and wedding season begins to wind down, I am constantly reminded of what a privilege it is to document these special moments.
The day began with much anticipation as Alyssa and her bridesmaids got ready together — the first thing Alyssa said to me was, “I’m just ready to get this party started!”. That sentiment held true in Josh’s mind too as you could tell they were both just SO anxious to finally be married! Alyssa had the sweetest first look with her Dad and I felt myself getting emotional behind the lens as they embraced and shared tears together. Those tears carried through to the ceremony as Alyssa walked down the aisle and her eyes met with Josh… one of my favorite moments of the day! The whole wedding party beamed with enthusiasm for their friends — something that was on full display on the dance floor too! ; )
I think you can tell a lot about a couple and who they are as individuals during the speeches. Surprising rare during a wedding, the room dropped silent during Josh & Alyssa’s reception and every single person stopped what they were doing to listen — listening to how supportive Alyssa has been of Josh & his passions, listening to how their partnership made perfect sense from the beginning. Story after story sang praises on the character of Josh & Alyssa and how lucky their friends were to have their presence in their lives. It’s a beautiful thing to be surrounded by such deep & meaningful relationships!
Alyssa & Josh, you two enrich the lives of those you touch. Thank you for asking me to document your wedding day and I can’t wait to see what you guys conquer next! Xo
