Just a week before their wedding, Alyssa was worried about the weather as a hurricane threatened to dump rain all over South Florida. Although it drizzled just a bit during family formals, Alyssa and Chris' wedding day was just perfect. And I'm not afraid to admit I cried not only during the ceremony, but the reception, too. (More on that later)
The wedding party got ready at the Embassy Suites in Boca Raton.
Oh Noah. You little heartbreaker, you.
Alyssa's brother surprised her by asking for a dance. #photographersthatsingletearcryatreceptions
And then just as you thought the tears were over, Alyssa invited her grandparents to the dance floor to share a dance. Alyssa and Chris now share a wedding anniversary date with her grandparents, and just weeks before the wedding, her grandfather had to have heart surgery. She wasn't even sure if he could make it to the wedding, but he got up out of his wheelchair and danced with his bride, just as he did 56 years ago.
I lost it when I heard her say to him "you ok? I got you."
Hey-o it's Ashley and Steven - a past Sonju Photography bride and groom! So you know I HAD to get a photo of the five of us together...
Congratulations Alyssa & Chris!
