Our “second season” of filming weddings is in full force! This past weekend Ty and I traveled to Annapolis to film Mike and Alyssa’s wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club! Supposedly 8/18/18 was the MOST popular wedding date of the year. And we would definitely agree because there were three other weddings going on at the beach club while we were there! SO crazy!

I could write a whole novel about these two! I’ll never forget getting on a Google Hangout with them for the first time last fall. E-meeting their pup, Georgie, who is a forever fave in their lives. And following along with Alyssa on Instagram and watching her life as actress in various plays and productions in California unfold throughout the last year. I love that Instagram and Facebook allow us to be along the journey for more story building opportunities for each of our couple’s lives! We live so far from so many of couple’s but it always feels like reconnecting with old friends on their wedding day! It’s by far one of my favorite parts of our job! 

Mike and Alyssa met when Alyssa was on a group blind date with two of her friends. Alyssa and her friends noticed two other friends, Andy and Mikey walk past their table with a “stranger” in tow (the stranger was Mike). They were happy to see people they knew because their date wasn’t going so well.

Mikey, Andy, and Mike were meeting up to exchange belated Christmas gifts. The guys introduced Alyssa and her friends to Mike – and from that moment, Mike and Alyssa really hit it off as friends! They continued to hang out on group dates and Alyssa was always intrigued by his personality, how funny he was, and the knack he had for making her laugh over almost anything.

Then one night, Mike made the first move when they were hanging out at a restaurant. And from that moment on, they were inseparable.

We LOVE these two!! And we loved having the opportunity to capture their love story in their wedding film! Enjoy this sneak peek!
