Alisha & Emmanuel in Wonderland
We started our day at the beautiful Embassy Suites where Alisha, the bridesmaids, Maid of Honor, and Mom of the Bride, were finishing up those last beauty touches. Alisha is flawless, always, but today she was glowing. Excitement, joy, and laughter filled the room. After oohing and aahing over Alisha they headed toward the church. The countdown was on!
There’s something about a classic, formal wedding inside of a church that gets me every time. It just feels so pure and cinematic. I love the pews, the pulpit, the architecture, and – if I’m lucky – the beautiful organ pipes. Alisha and Emmanuel’s wedding took place at the First Baptist Church in Downtown El Paso, which has all of this and more.
These two met in Hawaii and have been together for twelve years! Emmanuel proposed at Disneyland where he had a preplanned caricature drawn with him proposing to her and a blank speech bubble for Alisha to write in her answer. And here we are finally looking at their wedding photos! Isn’t that so sweet?!
Their Wonderland reception was held in 150 Sunset was a feast of thoughtful details. I had the time of my life photographing it all! Look at how adorable the name card Keys are! As you can see from the photos Alisha and Emmanuel are so loved by their family and friends and the entire evening was a joyful celebration!
