Coast Guard Academy Wedding: Alicia & Stephen (Part I)

And now those of you in the late crew are in for a real treat! You guys get to be the very first to see Part I of Alicia & Stephen’s Coast Guard Academy wedding. Enjoy!!

Married: Alicia & Stephen

Alicia made sure to have all of the ingredients for a stunning look!

A fabulous pair of heels!

A gorgeous bouquet! Fashioned by the amazing Yumiko of Hana Floral Design!

A sparkly little flower for her hair

And a breathtaking gown courtesy of the ladies at The White Dress!

Add a beaded purse and a letter from Alicia’s Aunt and the day was off to an amazing start!

Not to be outdone, Stephen had a pretty sharp look going on himself!

Steve, you are one handsome guy!

And to top it all off, Alicia had Miss Jennie Fresa on hair and makeup!

Love these two! Alicia, it is easy to see where you get your good looks from!

I just love the look on Alicia’s face right here!

Alicia, you are absolutely beautiful!
