Aaron: Alyssa is outgoing, a super great friend, and lots of fun to be around. I love her smile, the way she treats those around her and how she pours her heart out into everything that she does.
Alyssa: I would describe Aaron as handsome, loyal, supportive and good. His innate goodness is what I admire the most about him and its the foundation of our relationship. He's also a goofball at heart. I love that he embraces challenges in our relationship as an opportunity for growth. He wants the best for us and is willing to put in the work.

How They Knew
Aaron: When I realized I couldn't see my future spent with anyone else, and I wanted to spend all of my time with her.
Alyssa: I was having a deep conversation with God during a rough patch in our relationship. I wasn't sure weather we should give up on our relationship or fight through it. God didn't give me a direct "yes or no" answer. God gave me the reality that ALL relationships take work and in that moment I realized that Aaron was that person I wanted to do that work with.
The Wedding Day
Alyssa and Aaron were married in October 2020 at the Myriad Botanical Gardens in OKC in a COVID-aware wedding ceremony. They were surrounded by a small number of family and friends and their day was filled with love, joy, and so many beautiful touches. I am so happy I got to witness their union and be a part of their big day!
