Fall Wedding 🍂

Yesterday was the perfect day for a fall wedding. 🍂 Jennie & I met freshman year when she was one of our “random” roommates. I put that in quotations because I know it was not a coincidence- God had some amazing plans in the works. I couldn’t have asked for a better “random” roommate. 

Throughout the years, Jennie and I have become best friends. Yes, I have many best friends and Jennie is definitely on that list. We dance so hard together and laugh so hard together. 

Here are some of the crazy things we have done:

  • Grocery shopped at Snith’s in our pajamas often.
  • Got picked up in a car for a dinner party by two complete strangers without exchanging so much as one word.
  • Accidentally told Brandon Davies, former BYU basketball star, that we were wearing mustaches to raise prostate awareness instead of prostate cancer awareness.
  • Danced EVERYWHERE. Kitchen tables, random apartments, clubs, in class.
  • Survived the scariest class of my college career together- D&C with Mark Belk.
  • Convinced a Canadian to join the BYU Volleyball Team- he wasn’t even Mormon. 😂 That is how convincing we are. 😉
  • Dressed up as men on several occasions with facial hair and all- including Sawyer and Hurley from Lost.
  • DI shopping sprees on the reg.
  • Made ice cream cake for all of our friends birthdays/half-birthdays.
  • Watched all of our accounting videos on quadruple-speed together.
  • Declared our majors together. 
  • Found a working TV during Sunday School at the Wilk to watch the championship basketball game. 👀
  • CREAMERY FRIDAYS. Every. Single. Friday.
  • Floors seats of the Killers together.
  • Snuck into the freshman dance every year for 5 years. 👀😬😂
  • Choked on pizza. Separately- not together. 
  • Made ESPN by being crazy BYU Football fans together.

Okay I could go on and on forever, but suffice it to say- I LOVE JENNIE LEVER. Well now Jennie Jentczch. ❤️

What a happy day to start eternity!

XOXO,

Alyse

Okay. I am DYING at these photos. This is one of the moments that I am most excited to share from the wedding and I am sorry it has taken me SO LONG. Aren’t these girls STUNNING!? I am so obsessed with them because not only are they drop-dead gorgeous, but they have shaped me through their wisdom, love, patience, and friendship into the woman I am today. I love each one of them so much for so many different reasons. You can read more about those reasons here! So many great memories with these wonderful people.

I loved our day. It was seriously a fairytale.

XOXO,

Alyse

 

The Groom


My calm during the storm. Nick’s 28th birthday was this week. He is the sweetest, smartest, handsomest, lovingest guy I know. As I am writing this, he is putting away the dishes. And he brought me home flowers last night after doing the grocery shopping. I love him.

Since he turned 28, here are 28 things I love about Nick:

  1. He sings every chance he gets- he has many original hit songs that he makes up on the fly.
  2. He is so easy going. He just goes with the flow & enjoys life.
  3. He is smart with money. He saves and invests more than he spends. It’s comforting to know those habits.
  4. He is smart. Math, Econ, and many other subjects just come easy to him. He taught himself to code. Somehow, however, he still makes the rest of us feel smart, too…which is not true for all brilliant people.
  5. He loves his family.
  6. He’s a natural athlete. He’s great at sports (although he is banned from playing a lot of them due to injuries).
  7. He loves making up nicknames. And so do I!
  8. He is aware. Nick is aware of his surroundings, how people are feeling, how he feels, etc. He can put those thoughts into the correct words. I probably didn’t explain this well, but this is one my favorite things about Nick.
  9. He is my husband!
  10. He loves to laugh. His laugh is contagious.
  11. He loves to make people laugh. It’s really sweet when he makes me laugh, especially when I’m grumpy.
  12. He loves baseball! ⚾️
  13. He is handsome. I love his tan skin, dark hair, cute lips, & dark brown eyes!
  14. He is supportive. He is my #1 blog fan, encouraged me to try out for the Rangers when I wanted to, hugs me when I’m down, & loves me always.
  15. He loves to travel.
  16. He meets me out at my car at night, so I don’t have to walk in alone.
  17. He loves ice cream. ?
  18. He has good clothing style.
  19. He puts my happiness first.
  20. He likes to read. He is constantly staying up-to-date by reading news and ESPN articles.
  21. He is great with kids. And the kids love him!
  22. He’s even-tempered and patient.
  23. He makes life fun.
  24. He comes with a whole lot of good people in his family!
  25. He is a good driver!
  26. He has strong morals that he has had his whole life.
  27. He loves me.
  28. We get to be together forEVER! ?

He’s kinda great & I love him!!!

XOXO,

Alyse
