Zach + Alyssa | Asheville, North Carolina Wedding
I’ve known Alyssa since I was in 8th grade. That was in 2003. Her family moved to South Carolina from Wisconsin and her and her sisters were the new kids at our school that year. Her older sister was in my class and became one of my best friends. When I met them, I was 13 years old. If you told me I’d get the incredible opportunity of capturing her wedding day 16 years later I would’ve laughed and rolled my eyes like the sassy weird teenager I was. But WOW! Here I am at 29 years old and I’m filled with gratitude and tears of joy as I deliver their gallery today.
The way these two looked at each other from their first look into the rest of the day had me filled with chills. At one point during the reception Alyssa and Zach were at opposite sides of the room conversing with family and friends. I caught a glimpse of Alyssa looking past me with the softest loving smile on her face followed by a wink. When I looked behind me, I saw Zach with the biggest grin mouthing the words “I love you”.
That right there was my favorite moment of the entire day! It’s those subtle peeks into a love story that remind me of the core reason why I love this job so much.
