Alicia + Troy : : Preview Gallery!

When Alicia and Troy first were engaged last year, their first thought was they wanted a destination wedding somewhere tropical. But through the planning process, they changed their minds and decided to be wed on the beautiful Windmill Island in Holland. But they their original destination wedding was never far from their minds and their planning made their guests feel as if they had all gone to a fabulous vacation spot.

With an open tent, festive colors and amazing food, details, love and emotion, they had the perfect wedding day. What I loved about the wedding the most was just working with this amazing couple. Alicia had me laughing on more than one occasion...she burst into song, laughter and tears throughout the day and it was a joy to work with them both.

Also on hand was the ever-organized Aletha of Pearls Events, overseeing all of the many details of the day. It's always a fun wedding when we get to work together!

Alicia and Troy, I hope you enjoy your preview. It's a long one. I had a very hard time narrowing down the pictures!

The flower girls all had on these amazing tutu's...I adored them! So did the girls...the flounced all day long in them.

These were Alicia's something blue shoes for the reception.
Seeing herself all dressed for the first time...I love this part of the day!
Honestly, my favorite part of the day is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. The emotion is overwhelming. I can't help but tear up.

Are her eyes ridiculous or what?!

Can anyone guess what kind of beer is in these glasses?

The reception was amazing...full of tourquoise, greens and crisp white flowers.

And a dessert buffet...completely fabulous sweet treats from Til Midnight.

This couple left nothing to chance and had a super fun kid's table set up at the reception.

Another killer first dance...these two had the moves down!

Alicia and Troy...I wish you nothing but happiness and love in your futures together.
