Saturday morning proved to be the perfect day for Alica to marry Bryan, the man of her dreams on the family farm. The place where she followed "Daddy" around doing chores, rode horses with her Mom and kept up with her 3 brothers. Being involved with this wedding, I knew one thing from the start. Her family wanted this day to be one of the best, to be special. They completely transformed a hay barn into a reception hall and a field into a ceremony area. And details they did not spare. It was amazing. One thing about being around families on such important days is you can see the love they have for each other, how much they care & how much they will do for each other. So now enough of my rabbling, here is Bryan & Alica's love story!
"We met through a mutual friend while living in San Diego, CA. Alicia was a student and exploring life away from home, Bryan was serving in the Marine Corps and was stationed there. The attraction was obvious, but Alicia knew better than to get involved with a military man. Bryan however was persistent and Alicia eventually caved and agreed to date. Though the pace of the relationship started out very fast, we practically moved in with each other after a couple of months, it took a long time for them to actually say I do, over 9 years! The foundation of our relationship is built upon the times and moments we have shared, both the good and the bad. Best friends might have trying moments together, but will always overcome differences. After almost a decade together we have become very good at just that. :)"
"something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" Notice the old penny, she had it in her boot all day!
...meanwhile at the guys.. take note the difference between guy & girls getting ready ;)
The first look was on a quaint dirt path leading into wide open fields that look out over the farm.
Then, just like that, it was time to get married! And he just couldn't help to think to himself as his beautiful future walked towards him, he is the luckiest guy in the world.
