SIMPLY ENGAGED: Alissa & Michael

I am super excited to share today's couple with you all! Alissa and Michael are the couple I have gotten to spend the most time with since they have come up from Miami a few times for vendor meetings with Layla & I! It has been so fun getting to know them. They are such a sweet happy and funny couple! I just know their wedding at the Mansion on Forsyth Park is going to be absolutely incredible, beautiful and a huge party! 

November 19th, 2011 (Alissa's birthday!)

How & Where They Met:
We met on Match.com..he winked first..lol

The Proposal:
We went for my birthday to Savannah with both of our families and after a long day of sight seeing we went just him and I to have some ice cream at leopolds..by the time we were done my birthday was just about 15 minutes from being over.  We were headed back to the room and when I walked in there was a banner asking if I would marry him and string of lights set up with wedding bells.  I was in shock shouldn't move or say anything.  Mike was like turn around and when I did he was on one knee with the ring!  We kissed and were in shock for like 20 minutes so happy and then we went to the court yard of our Inn and both of our are parents were waiting for us with champagne.  We all hugged and cried it was a perfect night!

Wedding Date:
April 19th, 2013
April the month we met and 19 because it was the date we got engaged

Why Savannah?
We like to be original and no one in our family has had a destination wedding, we also wanted our wedding to be very intimate.  We got engaged here and its special and very romantic city.

What are you looking forward to most on your wedding day?
I am looking forward to so many things, mikes face when he sees me as his bride for the first time and celebrating our marriage and love with both are families.  Since we are doing destination we get to spend a lot of quality time with all our family and friends for a few days not just one night!

Anything else you want to share?
Mike asked my dad for my hand a month before he proposed and had a plan to ask me with a horse and carriage ride but it didn't work out so he had a back up plan.  When we went to get ice cream he had given his mom decorations and the banner as a plan B.  So both our moms decorated the room while we were out so I would be suprised when we got back. :) so sweet!

Congratulations to the happy couple! I am so excited for your wedding!
