I met Michael and Alyssa a little over a year ago in Sucre. They met on Tulane’s Campus and are graduates at the prestigious institution. As we got to know each other, I noticed how poised and almost shy Alyssa was, and Michael just as reserved but with a sense of humor - not only were they a good match, but we were a good match for each other.

They were wed on April 15, 2017 at the Botanical Gardens in City Park. Their ceremony was intimate and the atmosphere matched it to boot - light spring weather, flowers blossoming where they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends. They signed a Ketubah, and in their Jewish tradition - broke glass. Michael & Alyssa partied the night away, and even though it rained through part of their reception, they didn't let a little water spoil the celebration.

As always, I am honored they hired me to photograph this beautiful occasion, and I am even more grateful that a dear friend, Devonte Williford with Rare Sighting Photography,  agreed to be my second shooter. Check out some of the photos below.
