Abella Wedding | Alicia & John

August 8, 2021

Say hello to Mr. and Mrs. Freeman! Where do I even begin with these two and their gorgeous Abella wedding?

When I first met them, I felt an instant connection. Alicia was in law school and has the cutest little pupper, Gracie! Those were two things I was immediately drawn to. Many people might not know, but I was pre-law in college. Even though I chose a different path, I have so much respect and admiration for Alicia. I know how tough law school is! Imagine planning a wedding in the midst of law school and a pandemic?!

Nevertheless, Alicia had such a strong vision of her Abella wedding, and I knew how gorgeous it was going to be months before it even happened. I was impressed by both her and John’s attention to detail and unwavering love for eachother.  Oftentimes during check in, they’d say they were running to a dance lesson or putting the finishing touches on their wedding day details. If there was one thing the day was full of, it was details! They had written the most touching notes to each other, showered their loved ones with gifts, crafted perfect signature cocktails, and choreographed the sweetest first dance. Side Bar: Donatellis was their caterer and it was the best wedding food I’ve ever had!

Abella has always been a favorite venue of mine, and their love story really was able to shine at such a beautiful location. Rain or shine, their love for eachother is hard to miss and impossible to forget. Thank you to Alicia and John for trusting me with such a special day. I know we have many photos together ahead 🙂 And a special thank you to Madison. If you’re reading this, thank you so much for referring them to me! 

Wishing these two and their fur baby Gracie nothing but happiness!
