I first met Ally at a bridal shop. My photog pal, Daytona, and I were picking out the perfect dress for my first ever styled shoot. Daytona kept telling me how beautiful Ally was and when she walked through the door, I TOTALLY believed her. Ally and Alec were the perfect models for our Brunch Styled Shoot. Ever since, I secretly hoped I'd get to play a part in their wedding day and now it's almost here!!
How did the two of you meet?
We met in high school and started dating when we were 17 after a year of being friends.
What has been the best part about being engaged?
Being able to refer to each other as fiance, putting together our new home, and starting our life together!
Ally, what do you like most about Alec?
I like Alec's gentleness and selflessness, his ability to be laid back while also being determined and hard-working, and also, he is hilarious!
Alec, what do you like most about Ally?
I like Ally's caring attitude and her compassionate and empathetic heart, her fiery nature (I call her a pistol), and also she is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.
What are you most excited about for your wedding day?
Our vows to each other and being able to celebrate our love with our friends and family.
If you had to pick a word for your relationship, what would it be?
Unshakable because we have been through hard circumstances, but our relationship has only gotten stronger. Also, adventurous because we have so much spontaneous fun together. (Sorry, couldn't pick one!)
Three dreams/goals for your marriage.
1. Always honor each others' identity and independence while working together as the greatest team we can be.
2. Travel the world together.
3. Establish a loving and welcoming home together.
There you have it, folks! One of the most deserving couples I have yet to meet. They have been through more than most people their age. I'm proud of them both for persevering and standing firm together. Can't wait til Friday, you guys!!!!
