They’re Harvard grads who are out to change the world… one college acceptance letter at a time.
Alissa and Oliver are passionate about education, and they both spend their days creating avenues for students to attend college. They invest into these young lives, cheering them on at every step of the way. It’s what makes them come alive.
Anyone who knows these two could speak of their achievements, about the hundreds of students they’ve impacted… but even more so, how amazing the two of them are together. How they balance each other, encourage one another, and how they are utterly unstoppable as ONE.
We couldn’t agree more!
And although they spent their school days on the east coast, Alissa and Oliver are complete and TOTAL Southern Californians. I mean, they had a taco truck at their wedding – does it get any more SoCal than that??
When it comes down to it, they love the simple life. For them, the perfect evening is walking down the street to the beach with their fluffy pup, Rigby. (Their sweet Manhattan Beach engagement session will give you the perfect vision of what that looks like!!)
Alissa and Oliver said their “I do’s” in a traditional Catholic ceremony, and the sweetest tears were shared as Alissa walked down the aisle to her handsome groom. This moment of seeing each other for the first time meant the world to both of them, and we just LOVE both of their emotional reactions. The whole ceremony was full of meaningful moments like this!
Every perfect, summery detail of their Bommer Canyon wedding was thoughtfully coordinated by Kristen of Stop and Stare Events, with gorgeous eye-popping florals by The Pink Daffodil, and oh-so-beautiful hair and make-up by the lovely ladies at Design Visage. The entertainers-extraordinaire of Rembrandt brought down the house, and everyone had a BLAST dancing the night away! Just take a look at the dancing photos – they are some of our favorites OF ALL TIME. You’ll feel like you’re part of the party!
Alissa and Oliver, it is so obvious how IN LOVE you two are!! It makes our hearts so happy to see! We know how much your family and friends mean to you, and you truly went above and beyond to create a day where everyone had an amazing time. We loved being part of the celebration! Cheers to YOU!
