This wedding is a little extra special for me! Continue reading below to find out why.
I first heard of this girl named Alyssa Saenz during our very important field day award service in grade school. I was pretty sure I was going to win the 500 yard dash for the fastest time and when Alyssa’s name was called, competitive Niki was a little upset. So years later when I heard a freshmen was going to be playing on our varsity volleyball team and I heard Alyssa’s name, I wasn’t too happy. I thought.. “oh this girl again.” Little did I know how amazing of a friend she would be and looking back it seems fitting that out competitiveness would bring us together.
Alyssa is such a fiercely loyal friend and someone you’ll always want on your team. She’ll have your back no matter what, but she won’t be afraid to tell you when you’re out of line. She’s incredibly beautiful on the inside AND outside, and I feel so blessed to have her as my friend. A couple weeks ago, I had the honor to not only photograph Alyssa’s wedding day, but to stand by her side as a bridesmaid. It was an honor I’ll never forget! Their day couldn’t have been more perfect…rain or shine!
I just adore these two and I couldn’t be happier for Alyssa and Cole. The two of them are so perfect for each other, and I’m so excited for them as they start this new chapter as husband and wife!
