How They Met

When Alyssa went into her junior year of high school, she met Brandon in their school’s marching band! Although the two don’t like to go by “High School Sweethearts,” they have been by each other’s side and grown together over the past 7 years.

The Proposal

After celebrating their six-year anniversary and living together for over a year, the couple shared a small list of goals with one another of things they wanted to accomplish before they got married. One night, they came to the realization that any goals they may have, they would accomplish them together – married or not! They lovingly proposed to each other and had no reason to hold back anymore.

The Inspiration

Brandon gave Alyssa full control of the design and theme of their big day! Some of her favorite colors to work with include neutrals and greens – which paired perfectly with the elegant Spanish ambiance of her venue, Lost Mission! She says, “Having sage and forest green be that pop of color throughout the day was the best decision, it made everything feel very whimsical.”

Unique Elements

“I have to say my dress and the small details I created myself were what really set our day apart from others! I found my gown at Olivia Grace Bridal – it was a beautiful champagne Justin Alexander Floral gown. I had one of the shop’s talented seamstresses customize my sleeves. I really wanted that “I’m running through my castle garden” feel with it and I got it! I have a lot of experience in design & fine arts so I knew I’d want to create unique invitations and signage and I feel like I definitely accomplished that. Our photographer absolutely blew us away with her photos. Her talent and skills in capturing our love is something we’ll always be so grateful for. Along with our beautiful 700+ edited photos, we also got prints from her in our package and they’re just so so beautiful! And I can’t go without acknowledging the detail and time Olivia Grace Bridal put into making sure I created the perfect wedding gown.” – Alyssa Hendershot

Words of Advice

“Do what YOU want. It’s your day and at the end of it, you should be the one happy with how it came out. But also, don’t worry over the small things, I promise you won’t even notice, and you probably won’t even care.” – Alyssa Hendershot
