This dreamlike wedding at Elegant Barn, surrounded by nature and sprinkled with twinkle lights is any princess’ dream storybook venue. The venue was the stage for Alysa and Sage’s fairytale wedding captured by StepOnMe Photography. The couple met through Alysa’s uncle, who Sage was good friends with for many years. Sage had a crush on Alysa throughout that time and her family always held out hope they would date. Fate would appoint Alysa’s grandparents as cupid, when they invited Sage to stay with the family in their house for a weekend. “That weekend we actually got to know one another some more and something changed for me,” said Alysa. “The next week he asked me on a date and we have been inseparable since.” The couple got engaged a little over three years later in an intimate nature setting at Fossil Creek. After they arrived to the road closed, Alysa and Sage strolled down a trail to a waterfall, and next to the rushing water, Sage dropped down to one knee and popped the big question.
The couple’s spring fairytale wedding has a touch of romance and sweetness weaved throughout the heartfelt and intimate wedding. Alysa is a doll in a dream dressed in a soft colored Essense of Australia gown with lace and sparkle details cascading down the length of the gown. The sweetheart neckline complements her softly curled hair and subtle hair piece. The soft pink and white roses in her bouquet are subtle, much like her bridesmaid’s Sonoran colored gowns. Their intimate outside ceremony had a focus on the couple’s LOVE as displayed on the altar while Alysa and Sage expressed their feelings for one another in non-traditional vows. Sage looked classically polished in a suit, as Alysa and him had their first dance as a married couple. With delicious cake, heartfelt toasts from friends and family and a dance floor to party on all night, the couple’s reception was spirited and lively. The newlyweds ducked away after the reception through a sparkler exit into Sage’s truck before spending the night at a hotel in preparation to leave to Hawaii for their honeymoon the next morning.
