Laryssa and Clifford met in high school but didn’t really connect at the time. Then during Laryssa’a freshman year of college, she went home on spring break and he was working at her favorite restaurant (which ironically is also OUR favorite Mexican restaurant, and after noticing his blue eyes, she followed him on Instagram REALLY hoping he would message me and she said the rest was pretty much history!
Clifford asked Laryssa to be his girlfriend standing outside her dorm on The Drillfield at Virginia Tech in 2018.
She said it was truly a fairytale moment because she remembered standing there under the dim street lights and after she told him she would LOVE to be his girlfriend, they looked up and realized it had started to snow (this was mid-March so the snow was a surprise)! Then a few years later he sweetly proposed in her living room!
These two said “I do” at the beautiful Crab Orchard Museum in Tazewell, Virginia, with a very intimate ceremony under the beautiful willow tree. Their day was simple and stress-free surrounded by those who love them most and it was a JOY to be a part of!!
They knew they wanted to do a first look, and we chose this sweet little bridge. It was so romantic and special, and we loved capturing such an intimate! We loved this fun bridal party!! Laryssa is STUNNING! For everyone who think the aisle moment will be less special if you do a first look… for some reason, it always seems to be the opposite for us. How sweet is this moment?? Personalized vow ALWAYS have me fighting tears. They are married!!!!! The sweetest bff speach– do you see those tears rolling down her cheeks?? Congratulations, Laryssa + Clifford!!! We were honored to spend the day with you!!
