Their Story...

Alisha knew early on that Tanya was the one she would spend the rest of her life with. 

From the Photographer...

Alisha and Tanya met in person on October 1st, 2015 and got married on October 1st, 2017! Alisha had planned a proposal for over winter break when Tanya would be home in Wisconsin. On New Year's Eve Alisha took Tanya out to dinner and took her to one of their very first date spots, Garvan Gardens, under the Christmas lights. There, she had a local photographer waiting in disguise. Underneath the lights, the couple began to talk about New Year's resolutions when Alisha turned to Tanya and said, "I've got one more resolution that I'd like to make. I don't want to spend another day without you." She got down on one knee and asked, "Tanya will you marry me?" The photographer captured the blissful moments to follow before they later returned home for champagne and a midnight toast. But that's not where the story ends. Tanya knew she wanted to return the favor and while on vacation in Eureka Springs, AR. it was the morning of their anniversary when Tanya presented Alisha with a book that told a story of their first year together. Toward the end of the story, Tanya had Alisha close her eyes and presented her with a self-designed ring and asked Alisha, "Will you marry me?" Alisha exclaimed, "YES!" Shortly after they sat a date to be married, October 1st, 2017, on their two year anniversary.
