Venue Forty Fifty
When a couple chooses “Hooked on a Feeling” as their first dance song, you know it’s going to be a fun wedding! Josh is a big fan of Guardians of the Galaxy, so the Blue Suede song was the perfect choice for Alyssa and Josh’s first dance as “Mr. and Mrs.” Alyssa and Josh are such an easy-going couple; their lighthearted approach to their day set the tone for a relaxing wedding!
Alyssa and Josh were married at a restaurant converted into a wedding venue in Addison, Texas. They were surrounded by so many family and friends who were very excited to celebrate their love! Josh and his mom had several sweet moments throughout the day, especially as they practiced their mother-son dance together before the ceremony.
Alyssa is the oldest of three girls and I was struck by the way her two younger sisters loved on her throughout the day. They are all so sweet to one another, during the speeches, Alyssa’s dad (George) even commented on their special bond. George’s speech was one of the best father speeches I have ever heard at a wedding! He began his speech discussing the people that had a significant influence in molding Alyssa into the woman she is today and concluded by expressing his excitement for gaining Josh as a son. He even paired his speech with thoughtful photos to go along with the stories. George is a videographer, so at the end of his speech he shared a compilation of videos from Alyssa’s childhood played to the song “forever young.” There were definitely a few tears shed!
Congratulations to Alyssa and Josh on their union! I wish you the best for your future together!
Time to party! On to the reception…
