The last Saturday in October was gusty, winds were whipping, it threatened to rain, and the temperature dropped about 30 degrees from the weekend before. I was a wee bit concerned, it was not your perfect weather day. But when I arrived at Alyssa’s parents home that was nicely tucked into the woods things started looking up. From there the locations Alyssa and Derek chose couldn’t have been any more perfect. We hid among the trees for shelter from the wind, stepped into a few bars for a break from the cold and snuck to the beach which surprisingly had no wind at all. When you have a gorgeous couple who is willing to brave the weather amazing things happen.
