Alyson and Jordan’s story of how they met has a ‘rom-com with a white wedding ending’ kind of vibe. They met at a mutual friend’s wedding (which kind of feels like foreshadowing) where they were fatefully positioned at nearby reception tables. After mustering the courage to talk to Alyson, whom Jordan had been admiring earlier on at the wedding ceremony, the two hit it off and the rest is basically history.
We have been smitten with this couple ever since we met them for a few beers at Urban Chestnut Brewery in The Grove. They are both witty, have excellent taste in music (seriously, we don’t meet too many people with a shared love for Gregory Alan Isakov and Nick Drake), and have a palpable flirtatious chemistry between the two of them that we find so very charming! We knew their wedding was going to be special.
Their wedding day felt perfectly curated, from Alyson’s romantic lace gown with pearl accessories and backdrop necklace to Jordan’s floral tie and leather suspenders. We especially loved that they chose to mix in their take on a Greek Orthodox tradition with lovely minimalist stefana crowns during their wedding ceremony. To feed themselves and their loved wedding guests, they went with pizza (including gluten-free options) and cheesecake – who doesn’t love pizza and cheesecake?! They ended the night with an iconic sparkler exit. All in all, it was a perfect wedding day and we are so thankful that our team was chosen to capture it!
Thank you so much, Alyson and Jordan! We wish you both so much love and happiness!
