About the Couple
After seven years together, Alyssa and Aaron are ready to tie the knot! Aaron and Alyssa first met outside of the bar that Aaron was working at at the time. After two years together in, they moved up to the Bay Area where there were more Michelin Star Restaurants! Aaron is currently a Michelin Star Chef in the Bay Area, cooking French Cuisine! Alyssa is a therapist at the UC Berkeley counseling center! Their work schedules are pretty close to as opposite as it can get, so whenever they have free time that lines up, Alyssa and Aaron love making sure that they are spending that time together! Besides being homebodies, Alyssa and Aaron love spending their free time with Diablo, gardening, eating, and traveling!
Alyssa and Aaron were planning to travel to Europe for Aaron's birthday this past December. Alyssa knew that a proposal was coming, she just didn't know the exact day during the trip! They had picked the ring out together, and Alyssa knew that Aaron was traveling with it. Early on in the trip while in Italy, Aaron actually handed Alyssa the ring and asked if she could just take the ring because he didn't want to hold onto it anymore. Very much a low key Aaron thing to do, but Alyssa didn't want that to be their story, and was willing to wait until Aaron found the perfect moment! Since Alyssa used to live in Spain, it was super important they they stopped by to see her best friend while in Europe! This is where Aaron decided to pop the question, in front of the Egyptian Temple in Spain, Madrid, one of Alyssa's favorite places in Spain!
Alyssa, Aaron, and Diablo, thank you so much for an evening filled with tons of puppy love! Diablo is so sweet, and he makes me smile from ear to ear with his energy and gazelle like running! You two have him so well trained, and I can tell that he really is apart of your family! I also love how you are making blankets for people to sit on at your ceremony, and then donating them to a local animal shelter! You two have such big hearts, and I cannot wait to capture your special day! You two are my kind of people, easy going, fun, and total dog lovers!
