Donny surprised Alysha with a proposal on a weekend getaway to Girdwood – and he invited the whole family, who waited for him to pop the question. On their wedding day, the couple brought in their friends and family to have their first look all together. “It was a very emotional and beautiful moment that we were grateful we were able to share with the people we are closest with,” says Alysha, which made it the couple’s most memorable part of the day. A unique element was the non-traditional guest book: Alysha and Donny ordered a large metal sign and a metal engraver for guests to sign with. Alysha also took on the challenge of designing a custom-made red dress, which turned out to be an assurance-boosting head-turner. “It gave me confidence that all the other ideas and thoughts for the wedding would work out.” And they did – including the couple’s amazing first dance. Months leading up to the wedding, the couple took dance classes to wow their guests to their favorite song. Alysha remembers, “We were even able to do a small, elegant lift at the end that made everyone go wild.”
