We were so excited to receive these gorgeous photos from our last bride-to-be Aly! Her wedding was beautiful and she and her new husband Wes were simply glowing. Here is the final entry from bride-to-be Aly.Over the past few months, I waited in anticipation of our wedding photography. I was so excited to see how our photographer, Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie, would capture our day. That was one of the biggest “unknowns” of the wedding day ~ what would the pictures come out like? Would she get all the right moments, people, and images? But I had to let it go, let her do what she does best and be creative.When we did receive the pictures, my jaw dropped they were so unbelievably breath taking. She captured San Ysidro perfectly and the love between not only Wes and me but also the love of our family and friends. All of the vendors that helped me create our day were beyond amazing and we could have not done it without them. From Laura with all the stationery goodies, Dedra Whitt making us ladies look gorgeous, Anthony Ybarra playing all our song requests, Richard Tobin for putting up with five wedding ceremony revisions, Kirsten for being called the papparazzi to Tess, Scott and the crew at the Ranch ~ it was a magical day for Wes and me, and for that we thank each and every one of you.For all the brides to be out there, here are a few tips of advice. The last month is going to be stressful, many sleepless nights and even some arguments, but when you sit next to your husband at your reception and cheers together your first glass of champagne, all of the past month goes away. And none of those petty arguments matter or those sleepless nights. Take in all of the moments you can, breathe and have fun. The day is about you and your husband and nobody else. So here is our day in photos, particularly focusing on our products from Laura Hooper Calligraphy!

Thank you to everyone who read my posts and put up with me over the past few months. I cannot believe a few months ago I was still a bride to be and now I am officially a newlywed.I will leave you with a quote in which I love and was apart of my vows to Wes by Winnie the Pooh. “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”

Always with love,Alyson Bowyer-Colgan
