Alyssa and John
John and I met in 2013 when I was waitressing at a restaurant in Boston and was instantly captivated. John worked up the courage to ask me for a drink when my shift ended and the rest is history. Both of our lives from then on were completely changed by the love that we had for each other. After five years of dating, John brought me back to where we first met, Boston, where he then proposed. I then dove right into planning a wedding, which is far from easy, especially picking out “the dress.” While going dress shopping with my mom at The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton CT, I was immediately captivated by the rack of Hayley Paige gowns. I knew from the moment I saw them that one of them was going to be the one. Being plus sized I didn’t want to get my hopes up on wearing a designer gown. Her team quickly reassured me that I could have my dream gown made in my size. Hayley Paige and her team worked so hard on my gown, even with having some bumps in the road she came to the rescue, and in the end I wore the perfect dress. Our wedding was the most magical day of our lives. It was the first snowfall of the season, which set the scene for the perfect winter wedding. John and I could not be happier with how that day went and will remember it for the rest or our lives!
