Oh, friends we don’t even know where to start with this wedding! This project has been our love child for about a year, and seeing it all come together was an incredible experience for everyone involved. Our hearts are still overflowing!
For those of you who are a little lost, let us catch you up. Last year we posted in some networking groups about this crazy idea we had to give away a free wedding. Yep. FREE. We didn’t really know what kind of response we were going to receive. We thought people would think we were crazy. Heck…WE thought we were crazy! So, we put it out there and we waited on the edge of our seats. You all are not going to believe this, but less than 24 HOURS LATER we had 12 other professionals all on board to make it happen for one lucky couple. Seriously you guys…we are surrounded with the best in the industry! We are so incredibly blessed to be in a group of professionals that have such huge hearts that they would give of themselves, their time, their talents, and their goods to make a couples’ dream literally come true.
Alex & Allison Bromley is that special couple. <3
They got married last July at a courthouse after being engaged for two years. Most of their relationship they had spent time apart because of basic, orders, and all of the side effects that come with being in a military family. We understand all of that completely because both of our fathers also served in the military. When we posted about the contest, it was mostly women who entered, but in Alex & Allison’s case, it was Alex who posted on our blog, and it was so precious. He was truly doing it for his wife, who you can tell he loves more than anything. Just wait until you guys see the way he looks at her! In his entry, he wrote, “On paper and legally we are married but we didn’t get the celebration, the laughter, or the tears. She didn’t get the day that every princess dreams about having in a white dress and I didn’t get to watch my best friend and love of my life walk down the aisle toward me. I want her to have the laughter and tears. The dress and the flowers. And who doesn’t want delicious wedding cake?! I know I kind of got carried away in typing this, but half-way through this just made me realize even more that she has made more sacrifices than she should have and has spent almost 2 years of her life waiting for me to come home.” I mean…how adorable is that!??!
When the day finally came, everything literally went off without a hitch! Everyone looked so beautiful, Alex & Allison were excited yet so calm, and we were ready for these two to finally get the day they deserved after waiting 3 years! Everyone’s families were wonderfully emotional, the bridal party was PUMPED, and the moment Alex & Allison saw each other, the day just settled and everything fell into place. The ceremony was beautiful as they renewed their vows, and the reception was amazing and so fun, and everything came together beautifully!
Congratulations Alex & Allison! On EVERYTHING! And a huge thank you to everyone involved who made this day such a success! From the planning, to the video work, the food, the music! Make sure to check out all of the awesome vendors at the end of this blog. They really deserve some love!
