Goodspeed Riverhouse Wedding | Alora & Frank

Frank wanted to ask Alora to marry her on her birthday weekend, before her actually birthday. So the day before her birthday they took their adorable chocolate pup Baily for a hike and swim at Lake Wintergreen. Frank thought during their hike would be a perfect time to pop the question, but before he could ask a thunderstorm rolled in and had them heading back to the car and his plan foiled! Later that day they decided to go to the restaurant Sage for dinner with its beautiful waterfront views. Alora and Frank walked around the deck along the water and Frank thought this could be the perfect place, but soon noticed what seemed like the entire restaurant watching them out the floor-to-ceiling windows and decided to nix the idea of proposing then with a full audience of strangers. Eventually the two headed to Milford where they had plans to meet up with friends for drinks later that evening. They arrived early so they decided to drive around to waste some time before finally parking at the Green to wait for their friends. 
The ring at this point was burning a hole in Frank's pocket and he asked Alora if she wanted to sit on the park bench right near their car to get some fresh air. Alora said she didn't really want to and with a smile opened the sunroof of the car as if to give Frank some fresh air! Lol She noticed at this point that Frank was noticeably flustered and asked him if everything was okay. Frank took out the beautiful ring he had picked out and said to her "I've been trying to do this all day!" The happy tears began to stream down both of their faces as Frank asked Alora to spend the rest of her life with him. 
To know Frank and Alora, is to know two of the most genuine, thoughtful and sweetest people you will ever meet. Their kindness and joy is truly refreshing. They don't take themselves too seriously and there is never a lack of laughter between them. Being around them, you can't help but feel happy and the zest they have for life! Their beautiful wedding at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station was a celebration filled with everything you would expect from these two amazing people becoming Mr & Mrs! 
Alora & Frank - We have loved every single second of getting to know you both over the past 1.5+ years and your wedding was a beautiful reflection of how special you two are. It was beautiful, overflowing with laughter and so much fun with all those that love you so immensely. Thank you for inviting us to be part of this chapter of your lives!

Totally swooning over the detail in Alora's gorgeous bridal gown!

The sparkle in these beautiful bridal details were on point!

Alora and her mom gave one another matching bracelets to wear which was so very special!

Seriously, Alora you are such a beautify, inside and out...

This photo of this sweet and tender moments has to be my favorite from their whole day... holding one another after seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day during their private First Look...

Just love this one!


I heart this photo and how you can see the old Goodspeed Opera House across the water!

Alora wrote a letter to Frank and you don't need to know what it said to feel what was written...
