This venue is designed for all your wedding and celebration desires, with plenty of photo locations onsite.
Alyssa was glowing! We arrived to bride prep to find her with the biggest smile on her face. Getting all dolled up by Ashley Anastasio and Victoria Winters with her makeup and hair, she was almost ready to tie the knot with Eric. Effortlessly stunning, she had a natural makeup look, and her hair was loose over one shoulder with a diamond barrette pinning the one side up. She looked amazing in her wedding dress from Silk Bridal. The lace detailing on this dress was unbelievable!
Let’s talk about the details!
Alyssa and Eric’s wedding details were elegant with classic touches. Each piece felt so romantic and inviting. WE LOVED IT! Their Ivy on Main Floral bouquets were soft ivory and greenery. Her six bridesmaids had beautiful floor-length blue dresses that complemented the ivory and neutral colors of the event. Eric’s groomsmen looked handsome in their Men’s Wearhouse navy suits with matching ivory boutonnieres.
What a fun surprise for Alyssa’s six bridesmaids when they saw her in her wedding gown and all dolled up for the first time. She wanted to surprise her girls and have their own first look with her before heading to her first look with Eric. * We recommend talking to your photographer about adding in time and setting up these moments for your day.
Eric started his morning with his guys. He put on his Men’s Wearhouse navy tuxedo and white details and headed out the door to get ready for the first look. Alyssa and Eric saw each other for the first time in front of the famous Hamilton Manor barn doors. As soon as Eric turned around, you could tell this man was speechless! It was such a romantic moment shared between them. Alyssa even did a little spin so Eric could take in her entire look and see it all.
Their florist, Ivy on Main Floral, did a fantastic job with the bouquets and flowers. The attention to detail was unbelievable! Alyssa’s bouquet was big and beautiful! The aesthetic and vibes of the day flowed nicely and complemented one another.
Congratulations, Alyssa and Eric! Thank you so much for choosing Limelight Entertainment to photograph and entertain your guests on this extraordinary day!! Lots of love and luck to you!
“Eric went above and beyond! My parents have a home in Southwest Florida, and we love to go visit them. This past October, Eric and I flew down to visit my parents and enjoy a little getaway. My parents had planned a night to watch the sunset at a local state park called Lover’s Key. Little did I know Eric had it all planned out from the beginning, and with a short stroll down the beach, I had the surprise of a lifetime!” – Alyssa gushed over Eric.
How did you both meet? And fall in love?
“We met in college at James Madison University in 2014. I played college soccer, and Eric played soccer on the club team and helped at some of our practices. Eventually, we talked and spent time together and discovered we had similar interests and quite the knack for some friendly competition! Since then, our relationship has grown, and things seem to fall into place. Seven years later, here we are!” – said Alyssa.
