It was April of 2015. Alyssa was a Michigan girl living in small town Ames, Iowa to work on her Master's degree. Before that fateful spring night, she had no intentions of sticking around Iowa after school. But the handsome stranger she would meet at the bar that night would change the course of her whole life. Matt and Alyssa fell effortlessly into a relationship together, enjoying time together spent hiking, visiting breweries, and watching documentaries together. As it turned out, Alyssa did stick around, and they built a happy life together in Iowa. Over three years later, they would exchange vows in a destination wedding in Alyssa's native state. Michigan's northwestern shorelines are stunningly beautiful, but perhaps the most glorious views are found in Traverse City. Among the rolling hills of vineyards and surrounded by their closest loved ones, Alyssa and Matt celebrated their first day as husband and wife. The day began with a beautiful ceremony by the water, followed by an evening of games, great food, and lots of dancing.
