I have known Alyssa and Logan for several years now. I first met them when Alyssa’s sister purchased a Grow with Me plan for their new baby, little Logan over three years ago. We hit it off from the very first session and over the years they have grown very dear to me. I was so excited when I found out they were engaged and they asked me to shoot their wedding. They weren’t sure if I would travel to Alabama but I told them we would do it in a heartbeat. I wasn’t about to miss the joining of these two beautiful people! The wedding was amazing and the guests had the time of their lives. It was a little cold and windy but the party carried on and everyone danced the night away. I am so honored to be a part of this sweet family’s life and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. I know it will be awesome! ♥
Here are a few words from Alyssa and Logan:
We first met in a chemistry class at Southeastern and later hit it off at a sorority/fraternity function.
For our first “date”, Logan and his fraternity brother came over to the sorority house and cooked dinner for myself and a friend. After dinner we watched the movie Tangled :]
I loved Logan very early on but it wasn’t until after seeing the unconditional love he had for our son and support system he was for me that I knew he was no doubt THE one.
When/how did you get engaged?
On September 6, 2014, Logan took little Logan and myself to Jazz in the Vines at Pontchartrain Vineyards in Bush, LA. That night during the finale fireworks, he got down on one knee and proposed.
What are your favorite things to do together? Hobbies?
When we aren’t spending time together in Chik-fil-a watching little Logan scale the play area, our favorite thing to do together is simply drive around town looking at old houses and day dreaming what we could do with the place. We also enjoy puzzles, cooking together, and trips to Target (all to often).
Any funny stories about yourselves?
Funny stories… hmm… Well, before I really knew who Logan was, I smelled (yes, smelled) him in one of my Biology classes because he wore the same cologne as my Pawpaw Pete :]
What kind of jobs do you both have?
I am a Registered Dental Hygienist at Grand Family Dentistry in Mandeville and Logan is a Safety Coordinator for ES&H based out of Belle Chasse.
- What things do you love most about him/her?
What I love most about Alyssa is that she gave me a family. Her and little Logan are the reasons I wake up every day and continue to try to better myself to be the best husband and father I can be. – Logan
What I love most about Logan is that he has seen me at my worst and has continued to love me the same. Through both our struggles and accomplishments, he has never left my side and has been my support system through it all. – Alyssa
