Alison and Jose first met through mutual friends in college. Although Jose was immediately interested, he was too shy to ask Alison out, but she was interested too. The next time they met they talked for hours. When they finally starting dated, they had to do it long distance because Jose was pursuing his career as a soccer player. Alison being the strong, loyal, and kind person she is, supported Jose through his endeavor.
This February was finally their day to be together forever. The day started off with Alison and her bridesmaids drinking champagne while Jose and his groomsmen bounced ping pong balls off of the rims of red solo cups. After a few rounds, Jose strapped up in a black tie and white jacket from John’s Tuxedos and Alison slipped into her elegant Town and Country dress. Her bridesmaids weren’t the only ones admiring the beautiful bride in the clean lines of her gown, a cute dog also looked on while tucked away in a suitcase, ready to roll to the party. Just as the girls were about to finish the last bottle of champagne, Alison got a surprise present from Jose. The card was passed around the room and all of the women were in tears from Jose’s sweet words.
Jose looked sharp as ever as he waited for Alison to tap him on the shoulder for the first look. He turned around and saw his beautiful bride framed by the setting sun, as she whispered, “It was always you.” From as low as the ground and as high as the sky, the photos taken of the couple set the scene for an amazing night ahead.
After saying their I do’s in the beautifully ornate St. Andrew the Apostle Church, Alison and Jose led their closest friends and family to English Turn to get the party started and leave it all out on the floor. We’re so excited to see Alison and Jose’s love reach new heights through married life.
