Elk Rapids Marina and Siren Hall Wedding | Alyssa + Adam

“It’s happening… and the good thing is, I don’t want to go back.” – Alyssa

June 11th started with a swirl of emotions for Alyssa & Adam. Both felt “absolutely overwhelmed with anticipation, excitement, happiness and love” as their wedding day was finally happening. Adam and his guys spent the morning relaxing at the Grand Traverse Resort, with beers in hand and laughter to go around. Meanwhile, Alyssa and her girls prepped at her parent’s residence overlooking a breathtaking view of Torch Lake, listening to Brittany Spears and dressed in gorgeous floral robes. Once every lash and hair was perfectly placed, the bride went outside for a first look with her father. Crying tears of joy before she reached him, the two embraced and the strong connection of a father-daughter bond was completely evident. “The first look with my Dad was very emotionally overwhelming in the best sort of way. To approach my Daddy facing the sparkling waters of Torch Lake, his favorite place on this Earth, as he waited anxiously to see his little girl was a snapshot in time I will forever remember.”

Likewise, the couple shared an intimate, cherished first look that was greater than their wildest dreams. Adam waited patiently as his bride approached, anticipation growing and heart pounding. Once he turned around, Alyssa seemingly floated across the lawn to him and felt as if “it was just the two of us alone standing still in time reflecting on all of the love that brought us to that moment and sharing in the excitement of all the love that was still to come.”

Surrounded by those dearest to them, the couple was overjoyed during their ceremony. Totally personalized with each handpicked detail and handwritten vows, the two found this time to be more emotional than anticipated. Adam’s dad officiated the service and for Alyssa, “hearing his gentle, sweet voice speak the words the three of us wrote for our ceremony was beyond touching.” Their “wedding day ended up being picture perfect and again felt too good to be true.” Before, during, and after the ceremony, everything was heartfelt and simply unforgettable.

“We will always remember the happiness, joy, and excitement everyone shared with us as we celebrated with cocktails, dinner, and dancing at our reception. It was great to see everyone let loose and have a good time.” It was truly a treasured day. Congratulations Alyssa & Adam! We hope the best for you and May God bless your marriage!
